Why Richard Stallman Was Right All Along

Ryzzen Oops. (807 comments)

Crap, forget that. After scanning through it a few more times, I found the provision. It's in section 1022. Please disregard above.

Jammie Thomas Hit With $1.5 Million Verdict

Ryzzen Re:Seriously? (764 comments)

Are the "Jury of your peers" seriously that gullible that they feel they have to institute massive punitive damages on an individual?

Yes. Or perhaps just mean. Anyone who's been through high school knows there's no one more unforgiving than your peers.

86% of Windows 7 PCs Maxing Out Memory

Ryzzen Don't forget crapware (613 comments)

Nearly every computer you buy in store (or online even) comes preloaded with so much junk, it wouldn't surprise me if your typical computer boots with 75% of actual memory used up. Just walk into a Best Buy and try using one of their display models. Your average Joe Schmoe doesn't know that all those little icons in the system tray shouldn't be there, much less how to disable them. This isn't Win7's fault, it's the OEMs'. Agreed, this is a very lousy report with way too many variables.

The First Windows 7 Zero-Day Exploit

Ryzzen Time to delete my ROMs... (289 comments)

The problem is in SMBv2 and SMBv1

A shame, really. And I suppose it'll only be a matter of time before they find a zero-day exploit for Super Mario Bros. v3...

HTML 5 should support ...

Ryzzen Re:Ogg Theora is the natural choice (392 comments)

Exactly. I think if Mozilla continues supporting Ogg, and if web developers continue making sites that use it (sporting "Best viewed with Firefox 3.5" at the bottom), it will eventually become the standard whether the other companies approve of it or not. No browser likes to be left behind.

Although, I suppose the converse could be true if, say, Microsoft were to support H.264 with IE8, and then began using it on all of their sites. (But then they would be competing with their very own Silverlight, so scratch that.)

Obama DOJ Sides With RIAA

Ryzzen Re:If you didn't vote libertarian, you ASKED FOR T (785 comments)

I'm not saying Democrats and Republicans are great stuff. Far from that. (Just look at Obama. :D)

rolfwind was using Jesse Ventura's victory as 'proof' that Independents do stand a fighting chance, but that argument is flawed, since he most likely would have won no matter what party he was affiliated with. 99% of the time Independents do not win, no matter how much more 'wholesome' they may or may not be than the Democans or the Republicrats.

Windows and Linux Not Well Prepared For Multicore Chips

And Macs are suspiciously missing from the summary. Perhaps this is what Steve Jobs has been doing in his spare time... You can't fool us, "Timothy!"

Smart Grid Computers Susceptible To Worm Attack

Ryzzen Security of the Security Reasearcher's Systems? (98 comments)

The IOActive research will probably never be released publicly: Many of these devices are already deployed and it would be too dangerous to make the bugs known.

Hopefully they've tested the security of the computers that are storing this data. Wouldn't it be ironic if the IOActive computers were hacked and criminals got a hold of their worm?

Obama DOJ Sides With RIAA

Ryzzen Re:If you didn't vote libertarian, you ASKED FOR T (785 comments)

I'm sure the fact that he's a former wrestler / actor / radio and television talk show host had nothing to do with it...

He could have been a Republican and won that election. He's Jesse Freakin' Ventura.

I suppose it's possible for the independent party to win in the future, provided they can find a famous enough celebrity to run... but I wouldn't bet my ever-shrinking stocks on it. No Independent Party candidate has been elected president since George Washington, and I don't expect that to change in the next few centuries.

Oh yeah, and Jesse turned out to be a pretty crappy governor.
