Google Fiber: No Charge For Peering, No Fast Lanes

RevSpaminator Re:We don't make money from peering or colocation (238 comments)

I'm sure Google is monitoring everything subscribers do on their network but it would be naive to think other providers don't. You just pay less for the privilege. As far as I'm concerned, if Google wants to come to my town I'd gladly volunteer to dig ditches on weekends to help run the cabling. :)

How Many People Does It Take To Colonize Another Star System?

RevSpaminator Re:Or... (392 comments)

So you're saying each of the 100 will have to raise 399 children? Are you crazy? I'm worn out just from one 4 year old.

Sundar Pichai: Android Designed For Openness; Security a Lower Priority

RevSpaminator GPL Compliant? (117 comments)

I'd love to see how Boeing is maintaining GPL compliance with their Android based phone. Does anyone believe they won't make any modifications to the core OS? And how much will the NSA pay for a backdoor?

Phil Zimmerman Launching Secure "Blackphone"

RevSpaminator How Can They Guarantee Privacy? (156 comments)

If device security and privacy came down to just the OS, then Android could be secured by a group of like minded individuals. The problem isn't the OS but the hardware and the firmware that drives it. Android's radio image is proprietary and out of public view. This means there are going to be undetectable processes running on your phone regardless of what OS you load. So unless these guys are building their own chips and writing their own firmware, how can they guarantee privacy?

The Lord already took mercy on my soul when my ex-wife moved over 3000 miles away. Then "BoB" Dobbs came along with his pipe and helped me sort out the rest.

RevSpaminator Best Joke In Years (184 comments)

Someone should work out the licensing with the publishers of "Structure and Interpretation of Computer Programs" and create a full manuscript. I would buy it and put it right between to my copy of Principia Discorida and The Book Of The Subgenius.

Ask Slashdot: Why So Hard Landing Interviews In Seattle Versus SoCal?

RevSpaminator Re:We don't need you - go away (506 comments)

I didn't say they COULDN'T be great, I'm just saying too much polish and people see you are unfamiliar with the culture, which lead some to question just how much exposure you've really had. Besides, since when has casual meant you are slob? Just because I don't wear a suit and tie doesn't mean I'm unclean.

You can keep the "nicer" areas. I'll keep the mountains, forests and ocean, all within a couple hours of where I live. Nothing I've seen on earth is nicer than that.

RevSpaminator Re:We don't need you - go away (506 comments)

You show up to interviews in a suit around here and you'd better know your stuff. A lot of people will see a know-nothing trying to cover their intellectual inadequacies by a bunch of slick polish. It's one of the few aspects of the Redmond culture that I agree with. Suit and tie are a serious Bozo flag. We care more about results than window dressings.
