Soda Ban May Hit the Big Apple

SQLz American living abroad here. (1141 comments)

Portion size. Thats why Americans are fat. Food is cheap and portions are huge. When I first moved to New Zealand I ate out a lot. The portions seemed tiny and I was always hungry. Then I just got used to it and now I can't stop losing weight. In fact what used to seem tiny now fills me up.

Is $99 some kind of large amount of money? What is that like a week of brown bagging your lunch?

Free Software Faces a Test With Qt

SQLz Re:er... (177 comments)

Also The Foundry's Katana (new awesome product). Qt, specifically PyQt/PySide are huge in VFX industry. I don't know of a large VFX house that is not using PyQt at all levels of the pipeline.

Why People Should Stop Being Duped By the 3D Scam

SQLz Re:It mostly sucks (394 comments)

Are you talking about RealD? What is Real3D? RealD is not taking an image and shifting it. All RealD does is take the right eye/left eye and converts it to a format that works better in movie theaters, especially in the front row. They are not into stereo conversion. The don't touch the convergence. "Disney Digital 3D" is just a marketing term, Disney itself doesn't really have a stereo conversion process They pay other people to do it. Every VFX house does 3D differently, and most Disney movies have at least 2 different houses working on 3D conversion. I've worked on many Disney films, including Alice in Wonderland and GeForce.

Former Military Personnel Claim Aliens Are Monitoring Our Nukes

SQLz yes we know (498 comments)

There are aliens, its obvious. We're probably some common 6th grade alien science fair project where the kids have to terraform a planet and then create semi-intelligent beings. Extra credit if they don't destroy each other within 100 years after nuclear technology.

Louisiana, Intelligent Design, and Science Classes

SQLz Two different branches... (989 comments)

Technically, evolution and creationism are separated by about 14 billion years. If your going to teach creationism, shouldn't that be in astronomy class? What does the fact that organisms have DNA which allows them to pass on traits to their offspring have to do with the creation of the universe?

Porn Industry Ready To Drop Flash

HTML5 is just another level of bullshit to worry about when writing a web page that needs to render properly on multiple browsers.

Microsoft Talks Back To Google's Security Claims

SQLz Re:Some Helpful Advise (528 comments)

But...Linux far out numbers windows in the server room. Running a server on windows is like taking your head and slamming in a doorway 100 times, its painful.

Mozilla Reveals Firefox 4 Plans

SQLz webkit!! (570 comments)

End the HMTL5 compatibility nightmare before it starts. All browsers should just move to webkit and then compete with the interface features.

Thoughts On the State of Web Development

SQLz Re:Author should look into Scala (253 comments)

Too bad scala is awful. Great for academic use, aka annoying students. Why anyone would want to take 10x longer to code in the real world means a. they are dumb, b. they have money to burn and don't care.

I like to save my moderator points for Gentoo Linux articles and use them all to mod down the moronic 'I could do 'XXXX' if I wasn't still compiling' jokes.
