Why Atheists Need Captain Kirk

Pharmboy Re:Deism (863 comments)

It's funny, you speak of "no meaning" as if you have a scientific basis for this. Unless you do, your opinion is no more valid than the guy strapping a bomb on himself to get 72 virgins, and no less dogmatic. Not everyone defines "meaning" is as narrow a manner as you.

Why Atheists Need Captain Kirk

Pharmboy Re:Deism (863 comments)

For starters, deism isn't a religion, which makes the rest of the comment not worth bothering with.

Why Atheists Need Captain Kirk

Pharmboy Deism (863 comments)

I've been deistic for decades. It discounts the idea that god is an old man on the mountain, but maintains the idea that there is purpose and meaning to everything, not just man.

U.S. Threatened Massive Fine To Force Yahoo To Release Data

Pharmboy Re:If it happened in China or North Korea or Iran (223 comments)

As you point out, not all birds of a feather stick together. I'm not a Tea Party guy. I'm just not closed minded enough to judge a friend by their politics. If you only have friends that agree with your politics, you are probably narrow minded or take politics too seriously.

U.S. Threatened Massive Fine To Force Yahoo To Release Data

Pharmboy Re:If it happened in China or North Korea or Iran (223 comments)

Has the United States of America become a member of The Totalitarian Club ?

Yes. Each President has been moving in this direction more and more, but Obama has managed to overreach even more than those before him. Take the IRS, for instance. I personally know of people who have been getting involved with Tea Party politics and now are getting audited. Like their politics or not (it doesn't matter), that is totalitarianism, which means the next time a GOP'er gets in, he can do the same thing. It isn't a good time to be an American.

Did you use technology to get into mischief as a child?

Pharmboy Re:Define technology (230 comments)

Slingshots (ie: wrist rockets) are better for squirrel, faster projectile. You need perfectly round projectiles, like marbles, so they don't wobble in flight. And yes, I've eaten squirrel, usually "Squirrel and dumplings". Not bad if the squirrels aren't too gamey, it just takes a lot of squirrels to make a pot. We ate normal food most of the time, but my parents made sure all 7 of us tasted squirrel, turtle, rabbit and lots of deer, dove, quail, duck, lake fish, wild turkey and other game. Most parents don't teach self-sufficiency and basic survival skills, except those that the majority snidely call "rednecks".

And the "wrist rocket" IS technology: the taking of an old concept, and updating it with the most modern materials. You can do some serious damage with one of those.

Why Women Have No Time For Wikipedia

Pharmboy Re:Discrimination (579 comments)

That is a Foundation issue, not something we at WER can do much about. I think they have spent a great deal of money and resources on the issue, but I've yet to see anything come of it, to be honest. Child rearing is probably to blame in part, if we are honest and accept that our culture still has a divide between the genders. Men tend to have a bit more free time, and perhaps that is the threshold: free time. I notice a lot of unemployed people editing, for example.

Why Women Have No Time For Wikipedia

Pharmboy Re:Discrimination (579 comments)

Wikipedia's WikiProject Editor Retention has looked at the same problem, but from a retention point rather than the perspective of attracting new women. There were no real answers, just lots of speculation. Lots of people blame the culture, or say the place is too "rough and tumble" but I found that conclusion rather sexist, as it says that women can't compete for ideas in the same environment as men. There doesn't seems to be a difference in retention of men and women, they just aren't coming to Wikipedia to begin with.

Ask Slashdot: Would You Pay For Websites Without Trolls?

Pharmboy Re:What trolls (382 comments)

Exactly and literally. Smokey and the Bandit was still in or just coming out of theaters when I was 14. And yes, we were trolls (not on CB though). We did real world trolling. Smoke bombs, bottle rockets, bb guns, sling shots, chunking wax balls from those stupid wax sippy candy at cars (no damage, in case you got busted) etc. We used to do all kinds of crap that would have gotten our asses kicked if we didn't know the alleys and yards you could jump fences in without a dog biting you. Trolling on the internet is for pussies. We were bored, but we got a good work out, without inflicting TOO much damage. I don't recommend what I did, but kids that think that they are breaking the rules, trolling, from behind a laptop that mummy and daddy bought them aren't exactly rebels. They are just cowards.

Posting Soccer Goals On Vine Is Illegal, Say England's Premier League

Pharmboy Re:Ticket ToS (226 comments)

Not exactly. There is no freedom of panorama in the US, so sorry, but you are mistaken. Some photos of the inside might be ok, but anything that has arguably has artistic content (ie: more than text) would be fully copyrighted by the designer. You could argue "Fair Use", but the copyright still doesn't change hands, it isn't yours. Years of arguing with lawyers and such on Commons will teach you that.

Pharmboy Desert (246 comments)

No question, particularly in Arizona. The lack of rain makes it "older" on the surface, less erosion. I would love to build a giant metal detector and go searching for meteoroids and the like. I lived in Phoenix and miss roaming around the govt. land, which is plentiful, so there isn't anyone to ask permission. Just do the roaming in the winter, which is very mild, bring lots of water and curiosity. The mountains are climbable and everything is fairly accessible. You can bet most every day will be sunny and clear.

How long ago did you last assemble a computer?

Pharmboy Re:Update cycles (391 comments)

Sounds like a good deal. I did opt for a lot more options, tv card, wireless, dual burners, fairly high end card in its day etc., which ate up part of the balance. I know I could have built for a little less, but sometimes it is a matter of putting the risk on someone else, and how much your time is worth at the time. But either way, it shows it pays to buy quality. I'm using that computer right now, on my TV in the bed room :)

How long ago did you last assemble a computer?

Pharmboy Re:Update cycles (391 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.

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.

Sony Hacked Yet Again

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 (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

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 (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.
