Has the Ethanol Threat Manifested In the US?

Salo2112 Lawn mowers (432 comments)

The guy who I take my lawn mower to tells me the Ethanol gas is damaging lawn mower engines. Not sure if the newer ones are engineered to burn E-gas, but the older ones certainly aren't. So you go out of your way to a marina to get unadulterated gas for your mowers.

The first thing all the security people tell you to do is turn off platform apps, and this site does not work without them. Nice.

iPad Fever Is Officially Cooling

Salo2112 Shuffles (386 comments)

I hope they keep making shuffles - great for wearing when you exercise. I can see losing the classic iPods - the cell phone makes them redundant, but until they make phones small enough to clip to your workout gear, there's a place for the shuffle.

Jesse Jackson To Take On Silicon Valley's Lack of Diversity

Salo2112 Re:Fuck that guy. (397 comments)

so unless Jackson thinks HP should hire unqualified people just because they are black or latino, he should probably focus his efforts earlier in the pipeline

He does.

Healthcare.gov and the Gulf Between Planning and Reality

Salo2112 Re:Time for change (494 comments)

Evidently, you are unfamiliar with our form of government: this project was the responsibility, solely, of the executive branch, and the President is already limited to two terms. Congress was not a part of the failed implementation.

The task was simple. Make a friggin website that takes user input and spits out insurance options. If this happened where I work, they'd fire the whole lot without question. Probably enact some kind of legal investigation as to where all the money went too.

If Congress can't handle a simple friggin website project, it's time to clean house and Enact term limits. Restructure the entire congressional seating process, and give people more control over who's buying the laws for us. It's time to change that whole mess.

More Evidence That Piracy Can Increase Sales

What Features Does iOS 7 Need?

Salo2112 A master volume control (262 comments)

I would love to be able to lock down the volume so my autistic son, who lives on the iPad, doesn't max out the volume on everything he does.

Apple Said To Be Working On a 'Watch-Like Device'

Salo2112 Re:Oh, the irony! (291 comments)

I enjoy long walks - for exercise and stress release. I don't want to be in communication with anyone, but I do want to know roughly how far I have walked and when I should be heading back in, and for this, a watch is perfect.

Companies Getting Rid of Reply-all

Salo2112 bcc to the rescue (248 comments)

If you put the distribution list in the bcc field, the only person inundated with stupid replies is the sender, which serves them right. It's also a way of saving idiots from themselves when the reply is....inappropriate.

Mandatory Automotive Black Boxes May Be On the Way

Salo2112 Taxes (619 comments)

This will be used to track your mileage so you can be taxed that way. At least that is the ultimate goal. Masking it in safety will get it started, and I see a few sheep have already bitten that hook.

Should Colleges Ban Classroom Laptop Use?

Salo2112 The clacking of keys.... (804 comments)

Had a guy in a class I took who was a speed typist or something - you could barely hear the lecture over the machine-gun sound of his typing. To me, the distraction factor was in the noise created by the tool. If it had been done quietly, I would not have known or cared.

FAA Adds a Study On Adding Drones To Commercial Aviation

Salo2112 Re:Drones in US airspace? (215 comments)

Eventually, commercial planes will be unpiloted - pilots are expensive. I'm guessing this will be a good test of that eventuality.
