Pirate Bay To Offer Physical Item Downloads

RemoWilliams84 Re:*Gazing into crystal ball* (343 comments)

I live in Alabama and the way they get around this law is to market them as health care items. I don't know why they don't just do away with ineffective laws. Not to mentions stupid ones.

Ask Slashdot: Protecting Tech Gear From Smash-and-Grab Theft?

RemoWilliams84 Re:Stated Obvious (514 comments)

He said they are glorified hatchbacks, which means their is no wall between the back seat and the "trunk" area. Still plenty of room to put groceries, but you can get to the trunk by looking over the top of the back seats (and sometimes removing a little cardboard door).

What Would You Do With Open.org?

RemoWilliams84 OPEN (239 comments)

How about Official Penis Enlargement Network? You could rate and rank devices and have support groups and such. Probably could make some money just by plugging it on slashdot.

Oxford Scientists Say Dogs Are Smarter Than Cats

RemoWilliams84 Re:This study is bogus! (716 comments)

Puppies learn to eat shit from their mother. The mother eats the shit of the puppies when they are young to keep the living area clean and healthy. The puppies pick up on this from the mother. Most grow out of it, but some take some training.

Others just like shit.

Left-Handed Gamers Getting Left Behind?

RemoWilliams84 Re:Idiot. (426 comments)

Out of curiosity I flipped my guitar one day to play like Hendrix. (He played a right-handed Strat upside down)

That's not true. He did play a right handed guitar turned upside down, but he did restring it so the strings were in the correct order(thickest to smallest from top to bottom). It would be very hard to play with the strings in the wrong order, but I guess theoretically it would be possible.

Opera Mini For iPhone Reviewed

RemoWilliams84 Re:Unfair Comparison (240 comments)

find it so annoying to try and hold the phone in landscape mode anyway, unless I have two hands on it.

Landscape mode is much better when the girls are laying down, any other time you just cut off their heads.

Comcast cripples more heavy users.

RemoWilliams84 RemoWilliams84 writes  |  about 6 years ago

RemoWilliams84 (1348761) writes "A new email to Comcast High Speed Internet users states "During the times of busiest network use (which could occur at any hour, depending on your neighborhood), those very few extraordinarily heavy users 'who are doing things like conducting multiple and continuous large file transfers' may experience slightly longer response times for some online activities until the period of network congestion ends." This is explained more thoroughly in the FAQ linked in the email. To summarize, it states that this technique is application agnostic and will limit heavy users based soley on there bandwidth usage. Meaning you will be capped whether downloading bit torrents or streaming high def television. It will be used in conjuction with the 250GB limit set earlier."
