RasputinAXP Re:Fragmentation (237 comments)

This is so meta I can't take it. Is everything not-iOS defined as "fragmentation"?

Yes sir, there's nothin' on Earth like a bona fide, genuine, electified six-car monorail. What'd I say?

What's Keeping You On Windows?

RasputinAXP Re:Honestly? (1880 comments)

It's not just SSH, it's also a scriptable serial terminal with total control over how fast things get pasted in. You learn to appreciate it when you're deploying a building's worth of switches and you've got your character send delay timed just right.

What's Keeping You On Windows?

RasputinAXP Re:Honestly? (1880 comments)

This and a half. I really, REALLY never noticed they had a Linux version. I suppose I had to be eviscerated by people misreading the rest of my stuff, but hey. Linux SecureCRT, will wonders never cease...

What's Keeping You On Windows?

RasputinAXP Honestly? (1880 comments)

It might sound funny, but in my day to day work?

SecureCRT, SecureFX, Wireshark...then there's Photoshop and all of the games that I buy from Steam and never play because I have kids...

I'm far too set in my ways, and I've never found anything equal to SecureCRT on any other platform.

Google Chairman To Testify At Antitrust Hearing

RasputinAXP Re:why do people still use google, given tracking? (93 comments)

You mean one blue bar across the top and an "install Chrome" button on the top right? That ain't spammy. The MSN homepage, now that's spammy.

Music Execs Stressed Over Free Streaming

RasputinAXP Re:None so Blind as Those Who Will Not See (375 comments)

I honestly never thought I'd say something positive about Philadelphia, but since moving here I've found one thing:

WMMR. It's online at and they're just awesome. They're a rock station, and recently they've started to play a few more recent bands since Clearchannel killed off the only top 40 rock station in the area a few years ago but still stick mostly to classic rock and hard rock. Their sister station WMGK has more of a classic rock program. All live DJs all the time. Love 'em.

They also have a streaming app for Android and I believe a counterpart for the iPhone. Doesn't matter where you are, you can get WMMR.

Nook Color Is Now a $250 Honeycomb Tablet

RasputinAXP Re:The color Nook is none too speedy at all... (105 comments)

There is no page turn animation on the Nook Color, and thus nothing that 'stutters' when 'crossing the page [sic].'

I declare you full of crap.

Ford To Offer Fuel-Saving 'Start-Stop' System

RasputinAXP Re:Buy a Ford! (572 comments)

Sadly they only sell the bone stock Focus, which hasn't really been updated very well. They just started selling the Fiesta, which I recognized from the Top Gear episode they used it in to storm the beaches with the Royal Marines.

That alone gets me excited :P

The Futurama of Physics

RasputinAXP Re:My favorite line from Futurama... (150 comments)

My favorite was from Luck of the Fryrish:

  * Horse race announcer: It's a quantum finish! And the winner is-(Man holds up a board with the winning horse on it)

        Horse race announcer: Harry Trotter!
        Professor Farnsworth: No fair! You changed the outcome by measuring it!

Verizon Changes FIOS AUP, -1, Offtopic

RasputinAXP RasputinAXP writes  |  more than 4 years ago

RasputinAXP (12807) writes "Verizon has changed their FIOS AUP effective yesterday, and added an interesting new clause to their specific examples that we're all familiar with:

"it is a violation of the Agreement and this AUP off-topic information on message boards, chat rooms or social networking sites"

At this point, every FIOS-based Slashdot user is breaking the new AUP. I, for one, welcome our new fiber overlords..."
