How long ago did you last assemble a computer?

Pharmboy Re:Update cycles (203 comments)

I tend to buy boxes with fairly high end parts (not expensive, just high quality), and when I built them I did the same. High end enough that I really didn't have to upgrade until everything was no longer "state of the art", so no parts to recycle in.

My ooold computer has a Q9550 and 8 gigs of ram, just as I ordered it. It is still pretty usable as a daily backup video player, and not bad for midline gaming like Portal 2, Goat Simulator, etc. Upgraded the video 3 years ago, $150-175 for what was then a steal.

5 years old, and the CPU is still on the front page of Passmark, at >4000 pmarks. Not bad. Paid around 1800 without monitor. Upgraded to 7 Pro over Vista, but even the original install is intact. Hard to beat that kind of stability, and not convinced you can build it by hand anymore.

Scientists Have Developed a Material So Dark That You Can't See It

Pharmboy Re:Headline wrong, not invisible. (238 comments)

As long as the manufacturing can scale and it does offer the advantages we assume, I would expect in in £300 cameras with 5 years, maybe even cheaper. Look at Gorilla Glass, once they found a market and could scale, now everyone uses it for smartphones.

My most recent energy-saving bulbs last ...

Pharmboy Re:Dirty power (278 comments)

Generally speaking, anything with lots of parts has more points of failures. Since CFLs all have ballasts, my experience has been that spikes does take a toll, by virtue of them dying after the storm.an incandescent is just a big resister. Yes, it can break but it is fairly tolerant by virtue of being tungsten and having no other parts. This is why I spend the money for the better CFLs. I've been using CFLs for well over a decade now. Been using them since the 90s, so not an expert, but I've owned a lot of them.

Gun Rights Groups Say They Don't Oppose Smart Guns, Just Mandates

Pharmboy Re:Police (584 comments)

"Junior has permission to use this gun, but only at these times"

Are you fucking kidding me? This isn't a toy or an internet device, it is a self defense tool. I think that mandating "smart" guns is stupid, but this is even more stupid. Most people can't even program their DVR, and you want them to program a GUN?

The beautiful thing about a gun is its simplicity: simple point and click interface. Add some basic safety and legal training, and the average person is just fine without any "smarts" to foolishly rely on.

Pentagon Document Lays Out Battle Plan Against Zombies

Pharmboy Re:Guess they overestimated some. (131 comments)

I'm glad to see that even the ACs around here see the benefit of this. I read enough of the article (really) to get a pretty good feel, and wondered if /.ers were going to trash or praise the idea. As a training tool, it is pretty useful, more practical ways than it might seem at first glance, as it is fun enough to keep people's attention when being trained.

And yes, there are some real life parallels to zombies, like the AC said, or rapidly spreading infectious disease. Interesting stuff.

More Than 1 In 4 Car Crashes Involve Cellphone Use

Pharmboy Re:It's the conversation, (367 comments)

Actually, you are saying that PROFESSIONAL drivers have conversations and don't get into abnormal amounts of wrecks. Ok, I believe that. The bad part is that most drivers are amateurs.

I drive two hours a day on the interstate (not a "professional", just reasonably cautious with phone features built into car and never text and drive). You would be amazed at how many "professional" truck drivers I see crossing the line while fiddling with a phone. Whether they are texting or calling, I don't know. I don't see this daily, but I do see it about once a week. I85 in NC.

Blogger Fined €3,000 for 'Publicizing' Files Found Through Google Search

Pharmboy Re: Hacker??!! (248 comments)

In American CIVIL courts, money is king, and often the side with the most money wins. In CRIMINAL court, it is a bit different. One side is always the government, the other is you. There are tons of protections in place.

Where it gets fucked up in the US is Federal criminal law. State criminal law is pretty straight forward, but your protections in Fed cases is greatly reduced. The vast majority of cases are State, not Fed.

Ask Ed Rosenthal, who was convicted of being this mass marijuana producer.....because he wasn't allowed to tell the jury that all the pot was grown only for medical dispensaries. After the case was over, the jury was PISSED OFF and said they would have acquitted. On appeal it was knocked down to "time served" but still. That is the Feds for you, they aren't interested in justice, just notches on their gun barrel.

Pharmboy Re:Hacker??!! (248 comments)

Guantanamo is a fucked up situation, and it is being used for the wrong reasons in many cases, however, it does prove the fact that if you are on US soil, the government can't do those things to you under the law. Otherwise, Guantanamo wouldn't be used to begin with.

IBM Employees Caught Editing Wikipedia

Pharmboy Re:Edit, but disclose (112 comments)

COI isn't against policy, it is simply discouraged. I've participated in a number of policy discussions (as an admin) and tried to initiate a number of policy initiatives on the subject matter, but there is no consensus. Disclosure is a good idea, but in no way, shape or form is it required by policy. Knowingly adding bad material or inaccurate material (regardless of COI) is still prohibited.

Price of Amazon Prime May Jump To $119 a Year

Pharmboy Re:how many products? (298 comments)

Plus the products we sell are the same price they were 10 years ago. We've offset cost increases by increases in productivity, and our margin has actually gone up. I have prime, I would drop it if it goes up. I also have Netflix, which kicks Amazon's ass when it comes to video interface. Amazon is constantly trying to up sell you, making it much harder to find and enjoy videos than Netflix. Right now, I have Prime only for the shipping savings.

New England Burns Jet Fuel To Keep Lights On

Pharmboy Re:Jet Fuel? (230 comments)

I believe utilities have fixed rates, but also charge fuel surcharges, for times when fuel prices go up or down. Even carriers such as UPS, Fedex an long haul truckers do this. Right now, our trucking prices are based on a percentage discount against normal rates, PLUS fuel surcharge, around 22% right now. Power companies do the same. Of course, this varies from state to state.

Ask Slashdot: How Do You Convince an ISP To Bury Cable In Your Neighborhood?

Pharmboy Yes (324 comments)

We got a petition, so they would know how much money they could earn, thus know the investment would pay off. Took a year, we got underground cable. Persistence and organization won the day. This was just over 10 years ago with Time Warner and we all lived on 4 acre lots. 40+ of us.

Senator Bernie Sanders Asks NSA If Agency Is Spying On Congress

Pharmboy Re:Well yes! Of Course! (363 comments)

The NSA isn't spying on them to get that information. My point still stands, the NSA shouldn't be spying on anyone without a valid warrant signed by a judge, just as the constitution clearly states. That they are elected doesn't make them better than you or I, and their outrage should be the same regardless of who is being spied upon without a warrant.

Google Sues Consortium Backed By Apple and Microsoft to Protect Android

Pharmboy Re:Is this really patent trolling? (150 comments)

It doesn't promote the progress of science and the useful arts. It just stops other companies from promoting the progress of science and the useful arts. So everyone has to buy your "art" instead of the other guys. In other words:

Under the Hood of SteamOS

Pharmboy Re:Call it flame bait if you must (201 comments)

Xbox requires Xbox games, BFD. If you don't like it, don't get an account, don't use it.

I've been on Steam since, well, before Steam existed. Back when TFC was distributed by Sierra. They have the least amount of DRM, often none, and the least restrictive policies of anyone. They have successfully bridged the needs of the user and the wants of the publisher. It isn't perfect, but it is less offensive than any other DRM method, and they have a lot of free stuff. And frankly, I don't mind a company making money for selling software anyway, it's a free fucking country, and part of freedom is being able to sell your wares. Don't like it? Don't buy it.

Unlike any other publisher, I don't feel like Steam is trying to constantly screw me out of more money all the time, and is instead trying to keep me as a customer by giving good service and fair prices. I hope they continue to be successful.

Sony Hacked Yet Again

Pharmboy Pharmboy writes  |  more than 3 years ago

Pharmboy (216950) writes "According to a report in the Wall Street Journal, So-net Entertainment Corp., a Japanese ISP owned by the technology giant, said that hackers accessed its customer rewards site earlier this week and stole customers' redeemable gift points worth about $1,225. The company said there is no evidence that any personal data such as names, addresses, birth dates or phone numbers were viewed."

Greenpeace says Internet emits too much CO2.

Pharmboy Pharmboy writes  |  more than 3 years ago

Pharmboy (216950) writes "In an article entitled "Cloud computing and Internet use suck energy, emit CO2, says Greenpeace", the argument is put forth that the Internet is equal to the 5th largest "country" in emitting green house gases. It doesn't mention how much CO2 is saved by telecommuting and higher corporate efficiency, however. So exactly how "green" or "polluting" is the internet, really?"

FTC floats "Drudge" tax

Pharmboy Pharmboy writes  |  more than 4 years ago

Pharmboy (216950) writes "The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) is seeking ways to "reinvent" journalism. According to a May 24 draft proposal, the agency thinks government should be at the center of a media overhaul. In short, the FTC wants to create a new tax for websites like Slashdot, The Drudge Report, Fark and others, and redistribute the funds to "mainstream" news agencies, partially to create an incentive "to encourage people to keep reading the dead-tree version of the news". This would be done with "copyright licenses". Rather than having faith in the capitalistic system, it would appear the FTC bureaucracy wants to declare freedom of the press as irrevocably broken, and insert their own controls, thus empowering Congress to decide who gets what funds. While some news agencies would welcome this new source of income, can we actually afford to have a press that is partially funded by the government?"

Man travels back in time and is arrested at LHC

Pharmboy Pharmboy writes  |  more than 4 years ago

Pharmboy (216950) writes ""A would-be saboteur arrested today at the Large Hadron Collider in Switzerland made the bizarre claim that he was from the future. Eloi Cole, a strangely dressed young man, said that he had travelled back in time to prevent the LHC from destroying the world." He warns that "Countries do not exist where I am from. The discovery of the Higgs boson led to limitless power, the elimination of poverty and Kit-Kats for everyone. It is a communist chocolate hellhole and I'm here to stop it ever happening." He was taken to a mental health facility "but later disappeared from his cell." Perhaps it was using his time machine, which resembles a common kitchen blender."

Liberalism, atheism linked to IQ

Pharmboy Pharmboy writes  |  more than 4 years ago

Pharmboy (216950) writes "CNN is reporting that "Evolutionary psychologist Satoshi Kanazawa at the the London School of Economics and Political Science correlated data on these behaviors with IQ from a large national U.S. sample and found that, on average, people who identified as liberal and atheist had higher IQs. This applied also to sexual exclusivity in men, but not in women. The findings will be published in the March 2010 issue of Social Psychology Quarterly.""

Pharmboy Pharmboy writes  |  more than 7 years ago

Pharmboy (216950) writes "The Register reports that the main chemical in marijuana (THC) may help stave off Alzheimer's. This was also reported on CNN, based on data published in Molecular Pharmaceutics. Add this to the recent reports that the fastest growing age group for smoking marijuana are 50 to 59 year olds, you have to ask yourself: Is it is finally time to reclassify the evil weed? Perhaps ironic that a drug know for temporary short-term memory loss could treat a disease known for its permanant long term memory loss. Technically, it is illegal for anyone in the US to use marijuana for treatment of any disease, no matter how effective, which would make this finding moot if the laws were not changed."

This is the message I got from the system the other day. Now, I had spend that last two days off, and really bored, so I guess I posted a lot of messages. My karma has long since capped off, so it doesn't make a difference in rating, and several are negative, but the sheer quantity of moderation just took me back, so I thought I would journal it. Keep in mind, this is a single days worth of moderation. I have no idea what the two 0's are. They are not from moderators who posted afterward, since those are shown lower.
