Dell Fixes Ultrabook That Smelled of Cat Urine

RiscIt Macs had a similar issue not long ago (133 comments)

It's ironic that the story would say you won't find this issue with a Mac Book air.

It wasn't too many years ago that iBooks had an issue where they would smell like body odor after the case had begun to oxidize.

We still have one. It still stinks.

I guess they were thinking most nerds wouldn't notice?

Ask Slashdot: Dedicating Code?

RiscIt Re:Bad idea (186 comments)

Indeed. There is a reason memorials are made out of things like stone. Things that don't really last make the person making the dedication feel better, but I've always felt they were bit hollow.

I still find it sad when I see those "In Loving Memory of" stickers on new cars of all things. ...That same car will rust and decay and eventually be sold for scrap in 20 years or less most likely. How does that honor anyone?

Ask Slashdot: How Are You Haunting Your House This Hallowe'en?

RiscIt Re:We're the local light show (249 comments)

Thought I had replied to this but i don't see it here anymore...

Sorry, no. As much as we're not fans of the Light-O-Rama software (lots of interface quirks, costly upgrades) there really isn't a lot of options out there, and none of it is any better.

I'm pretty opposed to charging for software that is specifically for proprietary hardware anyway... so.. meh. Moving on.

Free Remote Access Tools For Windows and Mac Compared

RiscIt Re:Logmein ftw! (152 comments)

Great, isn't it? I don't know why they charge so much for the other account options... "Free" vs "Arm & Leg" makes it hard to want to upgrade.

DIY Live Video Broadcast Streaming?

RiscIt RiscIt writes  |  more than 5 years ago

RiscIt (95258) writes "I'm currently consulting with a (very) local television station who wishes to stream their broadcasts live on the web. They have a rather modest internet connection, which can support a single outgoing video stream without getting in the way of other bandwidth demands, but that's about it. The theory is that we should be able to stream to a web/video server which then replicates it to all current viewers. What software technologies are available today, preferably open source and free, which would help make this work? Solutions which can be viewed with the standard flash plugin are preferable. A "Slingbox to Flash" server would be ideal, for example."



yeah, ok.

yeah this is neat. But why the hell does this belong on a news site?
