FarmBot: an Open Source Automated Farming Machine

Redbehrend Re: Garden Bot (133 comments)

Bots easily run on wheels these days lol Also they have Very cheap "rail" systems these days that can even be made out of plastic/wood. What about the food prices this could help lower them. What about all the farmers that get sick? The list goes on innovation isn't something to turn away... Even if it doesn't succeed new tools will stem from this area. Automation is coming fight it all you want...

Google's Driverless Cars Capable of Exceeding Speed Limit

Redbehrend Re: A limit is a limit (475 comments)

It's a smart move, lane changes, hazards and other scenarios that require a little extra speed will be safer... I'd go 10 mph faster any day to avoid someone hitting me even if it's their fault.

Is Storage Necessary For Renewable Energy?

Redbehrend Re: Expert?? (442 comments)

The only problems with fail over is that the power companies are cheap and cut corners lol... At least that's the case here in cali. The last several day blackout was because they ran the failover through the same system to save money... Only problem was when the main line and boxes blew the fail over did too... Cheap punks, what's the point of a fail over if it's running through the same system? Lol

I know I can watch basketball live and nascar... I think you can start to watch baseball now as for football and hockey I am not sure... Cable companies know what's coming they are gonna milk it and slow it all they can lol

Microsoft Black Tuesday Patches Bring Blue Screens of Death

Redbehrend Re: The suck, it burns .... (179 comments)

I agree android and linux is moving by leaps and bounds and the best part is almost any company can compile it. Hardware is even running smart altered Linux software these days with built in apps and gui. Windows is on the verge of imploding because they can't seem to do things effectively with all their dang employees lol. Every time they start going in the right direction they screw it up.

T-Mobile To Throttle Customers Who Use Unlimited LTE Data For Torrents/P2P

Redbehrend Re: just enforcing terms (147 comments)

I agree, with both sides but you always will have people that abuse the system which makes them have to do this. The fact that this "hurts" mostly people that break the TOS in the first place I don't see the big deal. It does hurt normal customers which always happens but in my eyes I'd be passed if everyone was torrenting and p2p that aren't even for their phone too...

Ask Slashdot: Preparing an Android Tablet For Resale?

Redbehrend Personally (113 comments)

I would take it apart and fix it. Usually it's a plug or cable that comes undone or a chip pops off. Check the internal battery connection also! The board itself shouldn't actually break. If something needs to be re soldered a shop will do if for like 10 bucks. Even if the display doesn't boot the system will and you can connect in. Worst case you destroy the chips by hand... Fixing it if it's clear where it broke inside is usually faster.

SLS Project Coming Up $400 Million Short

Redbehrend Re: pfft, 3.5% overrun (132 comments)

It's not over they'll be asking for more. I support NASA as my friend is a NASA rocket scientist and he is far from rich. He figures out amazing solutions I'd never think of. I also have another friend that manufactures for NASA (by contracts) and he's rolling in money and has 2 huge houses. It's their efficiency and spending ways that make me rage not the projects.

SLS Project Coming Up $400 Million Short

Redbehrend NASA needs to fix it's Org. . (132 comments)

My problem with NASA isn't the projects as SLS is a decent one. It's how they work, planning is always way off, spending is always high and final products are always late. They really need to figure out a solution to these problems, everytime things like this are released it makes them look bad. 400 mil isn't that much for this project but still could people of such high intelligence not see it coming or find a better way to plan? You know they are going to need more before it even launches. I'm sure it's not all them but what they do to get approved.... still you can always improve in planning, spending and efficiency.
When it's taxpayer money it always seems like people think it's unlimited.

Redbehrend Re: kickbacks? sheesh.. (70 comments)

Every union I have been part of has screwed us, has gotten paid more than us and lied about funds. I still get letters about legal actions and that was LONG ago.. The only union I have ever enjoyed is teamsters but that's because everyone is afraid of them lol.
