Markets For IPv4 Addresses Emerging

Senjutsu Re:Why does everything have to be monetized? (157 comments)

Because that wouldn't solve anything, long term, even if it were feasible. An /8 is slightly more than what IANA was delegating every month. Reclaiming them would take longer than they'd last.

Bjarne Stroustrup Reflects On 25 Years of C++

Senjutsu It's None of Those Things (553 comments)

It's because Bjarne Stroustrup spent 23 years at Bell Labs, and ran the Large-Scale Programming Research Department there.

Bell Labs was the birth-place of Unix, and was always Unix central. Anyone even cursorily familiar with these facts would be a bit surprised to see someone who was so close to such a Unix stronghold for so long running a non-POSIX compatible system for day-to-day use.

iPhone 4's "Retina Display" Claims Challenged

Senjutsu In other news... (476 comments)

Android OS is not actually an operating system by or for Androids.

Windows 7 wasn't really the idea of some random people in cafes and showers.

Saturns - not actually made on Saturn. Surprising, I know.

The Emotion Engine has never shed a single tear.

Magic Markers have no magical properties.

Nexus One Update Fixes 3G, Adds Multitouch

Perhaps, but that doesn't necessarily mean that they aren't infringing

Yeah, I'm sure Apple's notoriously aggressive legal division is just being nice to Palm /sarcasm

Living In Tokyo's Capsule Hotels

Senjutsu Re:Very affordable (269 comments)

Oh, yes, it's very affordable. $600+ a month can easily buy you a decent apartment pretty much anywhere else

Haha what? $600 a month wouldn't rent you the worst hovel in this city. That's a pretty affordable deal in most cities, let alone Tokyo.

Amazon Sells More Ebooks On Christmas Than Real Books

Senjutsu They Don't Have Critical Mass Yet... (111 comments)

In order to cut traditional publishers out of the loop, they need to have a critical mass of Kindle users.

What do you think is going to happen when Amazon announces that they'd be happy to give any author 25% of all sales if they publish direct through Amazon as opposed to the 5% their publishing house gives them? All the traditional publishers will immediately pull their properties off of Amazon to try to kill their new rival (or at least, try not to keep feeding the hand that is strangling them). So Amazon's Kindle readership has to be big enough that the readership stays with them when a huge amount of back-catalogue suddenly stops being available for purchase, big enough that authors will leave behind editors they have developed working relationships with over decades to have access to.

Amazon isn't there yet.

The Definitive Evisceration of The Phantom Menace *NSFW*

Senjutsu Re:Good Material But Lengthy and Bad Delivery (629 comments)

I think if the effort had been more serious he might have gotten a message out to Lucas and maybe even Hollywood ...

Apparently Damon Lindelof (Lost co-creator, Star Trek Producer) has been pimping links to the review and is quite taken with it.

What Can I Expect As an IT Intern?

Senjutsu Re:Eight bucks an hour..... (325 comments)

My advice to anyone wanting to get into this field: In your first job or internship, don't worry about money

You have got to be kidding. Have you taken a look at the shape of the education and employment markets today? Employers are demanding college educations for jobs that didn't require degrees back when you graduated; pretty much anything more than washing dishes these days requires at least a Bachelors. And the cost of those degrees has skyrocketed; the average college student here graduates with about $20,000 in loans that come due in 6 months at near-usurious interest rates.

Those darn "millennials" on your lawn need to worry about the money, because the experience of fetching coffee for Bob the 20 veteran incompetent VB coder doesn't pay for shelter, food, and loan payments every month.

Kids these days don't have the luxuries of a dirt cheap education and not worrying about the pay when they graduate.

So my employer is only entitled to any code I ever happen to churn out, my time or theirs? It's ok because they don't want my photography project?

What a dumbshit opinion from an otherwise reasonable personality.

If the Comments Are Ugly, the Code Is Ugly

Senjutsu Re:The comment may also be complex.. (660 comments)

And while you're spending your time figuring out why something that isn't broken works, he is coding something that you aren't coding at all. Sure, coding until it passes isn't the ideal, but it's a whole lot better than not coding at all (you).

Coding two routines by coincidence is not more productive than coding one routine properly.

Public School Teachers Selling Lesson Plans Online

Senjutsu Re:*First post.. (590 comments)

Look into it and you'll learn that "entrepreneurs" have been making a lot of money off of educating your children.

Those knaves! How dare they?!

I for one demand that they immediately cease making money off this, and instead dedicate themselves to the greater good of giving my child a top-quality education for free, and preferably while having to eat out of garbage cans!

That ought to teach those commie teachers unions that in America we don't go in for this socialist profit stuff.

Apple Says Booting OS X Makes an Unauthorized Copy

Senjutsu Re:Psystar is 100% wrong (865 comments)

Yes, but Apple is making their argument in a court of Law, not a court of Nebulously Undefined Rights and Wrongs.

The current law is the current law, and Apple is legally correct. If you believe that the current law is not optimal, that's a matter to take up with the legislature. Arguing that the lawyers and courts are wrong for following the law is downright silly.

Apple Says Booting OS X Makes an Unauthorized Copy

Senjutsu Psystar is 100% wrong (865 comments)

The Supreme Court indicated in Eldred v. Ashcroft that it was comfortable with the view that Copyright governs even private copying like moving a programs bits from a CD to hard disk or from hard disk to RAM. This is a legally settled matter, and Psystar is quite wrong.
