Or they never had them. Ever. Since, you know, scientifically there is no observation of this. Only guessing.

Small Bank In Kansas Creates the Bank Account of the Future

PRMan Re:Unless it has support for Bitcoin... (153 comments)

Sorry. I've seen how people live in the US and how people live in Norway and England. Your "purchasing power" argument falls completely flat.

PRMan Re:May depend on the drive. (219 comments)

Is that why mine is showing no SMART errors even though it's completely failing? I was wondering.

Seagate Bulks Up With New 8 Terabyte 'Archive' Hard Drive

PRMan Re:Just in time. (219 comments)

I have just had a couple Seagate drives fail just outside of their 1-year warranties. I'm never buying Seagate again, no matter how cheap they were (and a 3TB was only $100 when I got it).

Doctors Replace Patient's Thoracic Vertebrae With 3D-Printed Replica

PRMan Re:How about replacing with an adamantium vertebra (55 comments)

No, you have to pour it in as it's molten hot because once it cools, you're not doing anything to it. That's why you need a mutant with healing powers...

Wait! What were we talking about?

Dad Makes His Kid Play Through All Video Game History In Chronological Order

PRMan Re:Making him? (222 comments)

I beat it. It wasn't really even THAT hard. Ghouls and Ghosts, Battletoads and Sunsoft Batman are MUCH harder than TMNT.

Dad Makes His Kid Play Through All Video Game History In Chronological Order

PRMan Re:Making him? (222 comments)

I did this with my daughter. I didn't force her to play games, but I have the book High Score and we played through all the games highlighted (we mostly tried them, didn't beat them all). Some were still great, others are completely horrible and boring (the same ones I didn't really play then...hmmm). Now, her favorite movie is Wreck-It-Ralph, but she's sad that most of her generation can't appreciate its brilliance. She also is playing the Zelda remake on her 3DS and also downloaded a GameBoy emulator on her phone to play Pokemon (with a group of friends at school that do the same). She does play modern games as well, but my daughters definitely prefer a Wii to Xbox or PS.

Microsoft's New Windows Monetization Methods Could Mean 'Subscriptions'

PRMan Re:Full-circle (415 comments)

Linux printing? (still a crappy joke most users cannot make work) Linux audio? (still a screw-up without a single standard LINUX API) Linux desktop use of files on a server or NAS?

Actually, printing is the one thing I have had zero issues with on Linux. It just finds my printers (even on a network) every single time without even asking me and they have an appropriate driver already installed, including for the scanner. This has been the absolute BEST feature of Linux in my opinion.

Now, Linux audio IS ridiculously broken...

Microsoft's New Windows Monetization Methods Could Mean 'Subscriptions'

PRMan Re: I'm sorry (415 comments)

I got three installs of Office Home and Student 2007 for $99. That's $33 per PC. It's been cheap for quite a while.

I've had Linux break far more often than Windows. Windows just runs. Linux requires routine maintenance to keep it running.

PRMan writes "TGDaily reports that Sony is coming out with a new "unbreakable" security measure for CE devices called CLEFIA. One can only imagine what new horrors Sony has in store for trouncing the Fair Use rights of its customers, while protecting the interests of the MAFIAA.

Also, one can only speculate how little time before this expensive, unbreakable encryption method falls to enterprising young programmers..."
