How the World's First Computer Was Rescued From the Scrap Heap

Rinikusu Re:Essentially lost: only 8 out of 40 panels (124 comments)

I suppose someone could rig up a raspberry pi and add a bunch of sleep() counters to simulate the actual computing speed and give you the "simulation" of using the real deal, right?

Sony Pictures Computer Sytems Shut Down After Ransomware Hack

Rinikusu What kind of IT department does Sony run? (154 comments)

No offense to the actual IT workers at Sony, as I'm sure their hands are as tied as management allows, but it does make me wonder how this kind of shit gets through IT and not only infects one office, but nationwide, without garnering any attention from the IT pros getting paid to stop things like this?

The Nintendo DS Turns 10

Rinikusu Re:Funny Timing (61 comments)

Having owned a DS and a few other portable gaming systems.. I have to say my favorite handheld is my Gameboy Advance Micro. Battery life is excellent, portability factor is unmatched, and I much prefer carts over discs (PSP), and even over the DS cards.

Halting Problem Proves That Lethal Robots Cannot Correctly Decide To Kill Humans

Rinikusu Bullcrap. (332 comments)

I just finished my ISIS killing robot and it's doing just fine. It hasn't killed any ISIS members, yet, but it does seem to be doing a fine job killing hipsters. I might not fix that for awhile...

Oh great, now you sound like my friend's dad. "Why are you wasting your time with video games when you could be planning for your future? Why don't you learn how to program spreadsheet?"

Window Washing a Skyscraper Is Beyond a Robot's Reach

Rinikusu Obviously the Union (203 comments)

is hampering the free market. Why, without the union and all that pesky classroom instruction and mentored apprenticing, I bet we could hire 100 window washers at $5 an hour! No need to worry about why robots can't do what my $5 South American Mexican can do. May the power of Axioms absolve you!

Tor Project Mulls How Feds Took Down Hidden Websites

Rinikusu Bitcoin hosting. (135 comments)

Seems like a lot of these .onion sites are hosted on hosting sites that accept bitcoin. Well, how many of those are around? Kinda easy to whittle down after you get that list.

Zuckerberg: Most of Facebook Will Be Video Within Five Years

Rinikusu Re:No. (206 comments)

I liken it to the pseudo-hard-on some folks have for Meg Whitman. They think that just because you have a multi-billion dollar idea, that you obviously must be some kind of goddamned genius. Let's give it up for meg and for zuck: they had a couple really great ideas and were able to execute or hire people who could execute those ideas. But that doesn't mean they're suddenly the smartest people in the world or the most visionary or whatever and it certainly doesn't mean everything they can think of is gold waiting to be packaged and sold.

Silk Road 2.0 Seized By FBI, Alleged Founder Arrested In San Francisco

Rinikusu Re:I have said it before... (219 comments)

Tor is only as secure as the user is. What good is it to use tor to conduct business, then hand out your gmail address, or a skype name, or post on non-tor-based forums with the same fucking username you use on your darknet presence? Or if you configure your web server incorrectly? Just because it's the "darknet", it doesn't protect the users from their own ignorance and stupidity.

I buy my tickets online, but even when I don't I can't count the last time it took me 30 minutes to get a movie ticket. I go to the movies around 5-8 times a month and generally have a great time. Dont' know what bug crawled up your ass.
