Worrying Aspects of Linux Gaming

PC_THE_GREAT Re:Linux desktop never happened (265 comments)

I think you don't understand what Linux is (I may be wrong) and what GNU/Linux is (I felt so when you mentionned about the more unified Linux standard).

The problem is many opensource coder haven't been given much incentive to polish UI and video performance issues regarding GL and games.

The aspect most Opensource developpers seems to be running after since all the time is... security, processing performance and new features!

Just my 2 cents.

DuckDuckGo Now Blocked In China

PC_THE_GREAT Re:Question remains (82 comments)

I guess it is only a fake sense of security that the government gets by saying "hey i am banning this" when the rest of the nation will just be able to use proxies/vpns to get out. In a way, maybe China likes to give its population a crappy latency. :D They just wanted to be a dick.

DMCA Claim Over GPL Non-Compliance Shuts Off Minecraft Plug-Ins

PC_THE_GREAT Re: What the heck? (354 comments)

Why the heck would someone decompile an opensource software to know what it is doing so as to write that software again? That must be a guy who doesn't have anything to do, since he could just have read the source code and figured a different way of doing it.

ACM Blames the PC For Driving Women Away From Computer Science

PC_THE_GREAT ACM (329 comments)

ACM : an entity that lives in a dream that it represents any authority or exerts any respects in its field :s, no one gives a F.

Women and Men :s people should learn to stop using that card :s, come on, if you sucked at CS or if there are not enough women around in CS, it probably is because the women were interested in doing something else, now stop trying to find excuses and get on with your life.

If Java Wasn't Cool 10 Years Ago, What About Now?

PC_THE_GREAT fat cow? (511 comments)

Maybe because when one think of Java, one automatically thinks of a heavy framework and bad user experience. That is the general feeling about anything associated with java.

Vint Cerf on Why Programmers Don't Join the ACM

PC_THE_GREAT Why? (213 comments)

ACM never helped me learn anything when i started.
ACM's article usually asked for fees to access their documents/papers.

Thanks to the above two, i had always in my head tagged ACM and ieee as associations of people who are not really interesting in perfectioning the art, but rather making money out of it. So yes, i viewed them both as dangers to the art of computing.

The Secret Government Rulebook For Labeling You a Terrorist

Terrorism seems to be the new white card for power abuse.

Researchers Test Developer Biometrics To Predict Buggy Code

PC_THE_GREAT lol (89 comments)

lol what the f*ck!
I quote from the Microsoft research paper:
"In this paper, we investigate a novel approach to classify the difficulty of code comprehension tasks using data from psycho-physiological sensors. We present the results of a study we conducted with 15 professional programmers to see how well an eye-tracker, an electrodermal activity sensor, and an electroencephalography sensor could be used to predict whether developers would find a task to be difficult."

15 developers is enough to reach a conclusion???
Note that the paper is about investigating the difficulty of code comprehension, not how bug are introduced, while it may be indirectly linked, it is not for a fact linked, it is just an assumption, there's no such direct relationship.
Also each developers codes differently and requires different working conditions, and feels different emotions while coding, how the heck can they assume that EEG results will show any similarity?

This is a bullshit research wasting time and money. Probably some kind of marketing feat that will be used to claim Microsoft no longer makes bugs in its code or just some sort of conspiracy to turn programmers into zombies hooked to machines.

Lol blame the programmer for the bug when bugs occurs for a lot more reasons than just one human doing the coding, building a program is more than just about a programmer.

Anyways, it is a research paper :p, everyone should bow down and say "amen you are right" :s. Stupidities

New Treatment Stops Type II Diabetes

PC_THE_GREAT Awesome. (253 comments)

Extremely great news. Happy for many of my closed ones, i hope that this could lead to a potential solution to fix type 2 diabetes, i have a lot of familly members having this, despite regulating food intake and doing regular exercise. I just hope pharmaceuticals companies do not manipulate things to create a drug that one should be dependant on forever but instead create a one X number of dose fix it all thing :).

eccouncil.org defaced

PC_THE_GREAT PC_THE_GREAT writes  |  about a year ago

PC_THE_GREAT (893738) writes "Apparently The plague (Eugene Belford from the movie Hackers ) defaced eccouncil.org (so called self naming “International Council of E-Commerce Consultants" ).
No information is yet out on who did it. But in the recent defacement, the cracker mentionned :
P.S It seems like lots of you are missing the point here, I’m sitting on thousands of passports belonging to LE (and .mil) officials”
Furthermore the defaced website holds a copy of snowden's passport and a letter that the DoD states that snowden has atleast 5 years of experience in infomation security.
Funny thing is that, s/he also sent an email to the eccouncil asking that s/he is requesting to have a go at the ceh exams, and that his/her details are on the eccouncil's website!
More to that, the original article mentions that the IP address that is controlling the DNS for the domain was used earlier this month in an attack on a Flash-based game called Realm of the Mad God. — See more at:"
