That's about it ...

And I do remember the name "drinkypoo" .... in fact other than the "twitter" troll-user, yours perhaps the only real username I remember.

Prysorra Calling for bets (94 comments)

20 bucks says Syrian protesters will attempt a Tahrir Square.

Unsure about revolution.

Google Rolling Out Live Streaming For YouTube

Prysorra Market Expansion / Industry Threat (60 comments)

I don't know why it hasn't been mentioned, but this will allow Google to threaten the broadcast news industry.

Why watch news on TV at *all* if you're busy watching livecast after livecast on YouTube?

Can Android Without Dalvik Avoid Oracle's Wrath?

Prysorra Consistent Enforcement (264 comments)

There are what seems to be a countless army of people and companies using Java, and I have never heard of anyone being sued for "Java IP anything". Something smells fishy.

Assange Could Face Execution Or Guantanamo Bay

Prysorra Watch Your Back, Chavez (973 comments)

>Besides, when dictatorial, murdering thugs like Hugo Chavez are the primary people taking your side, that ought to be a not-so-subtle hint that you're not quite on the right side.

They won't be singing Assange's praises when he leaks something about them ....

Prysorra Tangibility is Irrelevant (161 comments)

"He compared the data contained within an address book that would be searchable."

In the future, so too would be human thoughts. Human heads are simply containers for memories stored in synaptic format.

Mississippi Bill Would Tax Software Sales

Prysorra What? (293 comments)

>But seriously, people like to justify property by making it some natural right.

But seriously, people like to justify life itself by making it some natural right. Obviously, if someone could better use the oxygen you breathe, by all means, we should take it from you and give it to him.

Property is survival. A human depends on secure access to calories, and the land we grow wheat upon is now our mechanism of survival. The transition to ordered society based around agriculture is permanent.

> we don't give animals property rights to their habitats

What? And so what are we citizens to our government? Animals lucky to be allowed to live? Government is a human social construct designed to govern humans, nothing more nothing less. Perhaps you're arguing we treat them like second-class citizens? Slaves even? Weird, considering "protected" endangered species may as well have "equal" rights to us humans.

So much for a government of, for, and by the people.

If property is theft, theft from whom? Your town? Your country?

How can one steal what isn't owned?

Oh, and it's Proudhon, not Marx.

Karl Rove's IT Guru Dies In Small Plane Crash

Prysorra Only One (377 comments)

Karl Rove. Come on, give the guy some credit.

The guy ran oppo for the Republican party. They guy know who to talk to, and how to get information. He has is own databases of personal information on people - check his website and his own polling data.

He is fully capable of doing his own leg work with his own resources.

If *I* know what I would need to do to get the info needed to manipulate only one guy, Karl Rove better know, or the Republican party is overpaying him!

Karl Rove's IT Guru Dies In Small Plane Crash

Prysorra Assumptions. (377 comments)

One man having an accident, or several, perhaps dozens of people conspiring to fake said accident?

False dichotomy.

What is it with people and the assumption that sabotage requires an elaborate chess game complete with blueprints, secret agents, wiretapping, and van full of CIA listening equipment?

It takes one man with a fucking match to burn down a house.

It takes only one mechanic with a desperate need to pay his family's medical bills to snip an important wire.

Karl Rove's IT Guru Dies In Small Plane Crash

Prysorra Occam's Razor (377 comments)

When a mouse in a house full of cats dies, the simpler explanation isn't that he suddenly lost the will to live.

The Razor is for simplicity. Your need to reaffirm your faith in the humanity of those in power is irrelevant.

Pushing 800W of Wireless Power at 5 Meters

Prysorra Power Law? (397 comments)

FYI: Power laws means square of the distance

60W at 2m > ? at 5m.

Well, 5/2 = 2.5 distance ratio.....so

60*2.5*2.5 = 375

So 375W at 5m is what the article should *really* be comparing the new system to. A two-fold increase isn't as exciting at a ten-fold, though, is it?

Prysorra writes "NY Sun

Direct quote: "We now have a copy of the note that Jimmy Carter sent to the U.S. Justice Department's Office of Special Investigation, interceding on behalf of a Nazi SS Guard. We first reported on this story this morning. Carter's note is attached to a letter from the daughter of the Nazi SS Guard to Mr. and Mrs. Carter, asking for them to help the Nazi SS Guard. Mr. Carter sent the letter to the Justice Department's Office of Special Investigations, with the following note attached:" .... I know a lot of people have their pants in a scuzzle because of the ex-president's politics...."
