I think our meetings would be a lot less functional that way though.

The Classic Control Panel In Windows May Be Gone

PRMan Re:And... (221 comments)

So that multiple programs can share the same settings system-wide. The worst thing about Linux is that every program works in a different non-standard way.

The Classic Control Panel In Windows May Be Gone

PRMan Re:Just keep it off the servers.... (221 comments)

Because they saw how crappy Novell Netware servers without it were? There are many amazing server apps that run with a convenient GUI when you are administrating the box.

The Classic Control Panel In Windows May Be Gone

PRMan Re:Please Microsoft... (221 comments)

Even worse. I RDP'ed into a Server the other day and nobody, even those running Windows 8 on their laptops could figure out how to do a "log out" on the server.

FBI Director Continues His Campaign Against Encryption

PRMan Re:And remember folks... (284 comments)

And considering how bad the information from the battlefield is on who is "known" to have fought for ISIS, he's probably in the right.

PRMan Re:No, they didn't (232 comments)

They should reject it and spend the appeal time installing a free mesh network downtown.

HBO To Offer Online Streaming Without TV Subscription

PRMan Re:How balkanized? (139 comments)

I pay $85 a month for Dish and I also have Netflix, Hulu and Amazon for around $8 a month each. That's $24 already, but I find I watch the $24 more than the $85. I just have the $85 mostly for sports, and because my dad is too old to be a cord-cutter. Otherwise I would have cut the cord long ago.

HBO To Offer Online Streaming Without TV Subscription

PRMan Re:Bad news for ESPN (139 comments)

Many people can already get it for free on their internet package at WatchESPN.com. Others have to type in their cable logins, but I would pay $10 per month for ESPN for College Football season and then drop it afterward.

Flight Attendants Want Stricter Gadget Rules Reinstated

PRMan Re:I'm a pilot (405 comments)

Well, then you're a pretty crappy pilot if you don't have it memorized by now. Please don't fly my plane, since you probably can't remember what an altimeter is for. Thanks...

Flight Attendants Want Stricter Gadget Rules Reinstated

PRMan Re:That's not the reason you're being ignored. (405 comments)

Yes, but they have pulled many episodes rather than tailoring them to fit. This is what you would expect someone with integrity to do.

Hopefully, you can set it to some % OVER the speed limit. Driving at the speed limit in Southern California will get you killed.

Tesla Announces Dual Motors, 'Autopilot' For the Model S

PRMan Re:capable of feats not yet seen in electric vehic (283 comments)

250 miles is completely reasonable for an electric car. With most of them getting 100 miles or less, that is astounding. And most gas cars get 350-400, so it's well over half of that but there is the rare gas guzzler which only gets 250 miles in range.

PRMan Re:Awesome (283 comments)

Exactly. My rate is 1.99%. I have enough bitcoins to have bought my car outright. But I'm pretty sure cost of living will outpace that in 5 years by a significant margin.

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..."
