Shanghai Company 3D Prints 6-Story Apartment Building and Villa

SirSlud Re:Is it really inexpensive? (97 comments)

You honestly think in 2 seconds you can identify a problem that a bunch of guys, who've spent years developing a technology, haven't considered, let alone addressed? Read the article, it only takes you 2 other seconds.

Intuit Charges More For Previously Offered TurboTax Features, Users Livid

SirSlud Re:Schedule D?! (450 comments)

If you're self employed and 40$ is beyond the pale in terms of a cost associated with running your business, you might be one of those people who equates being self employed with having a right to be profitable.

A Rift In OnePlus, Cyanogen Relationship

SirSlud Re:"Rather than Android proper?" (69 comments)

"Cyanogenmod is in many was less customized and more like stock Android"

So not stock Android, eh? What was your point again? I'm consistently impressed by the amount of whining that happens here these days. Years ago, we used to whine about things that were actually significant to professional developers, not whiny users whining about their phones.

SirSlud Re:Don't fight it (720 comments)

The definition of gaming as a hobby is not, "Gaming where ever, whenever you like, however you like."

Nvidia Sinks Moon Landing Hoax Using Virtual Light

SirSlud Re:PROOF (275 comments)

Obviously it's for publicity, but their claim is clearly tongue in cheek. Let me put it this way. Everyone is taking this way more seriously than Nvidia is.

DC Entertainment Won't Allow Superman Logo On Murdered Child's Memorial Statue

SirSlud Re:Superman logo is a Trademark (249 comments)

Congratulations, that's one of the stupidest things I've ever read on /. I don't even know where to begin, except to say that it sounds like your thinking seems to be, "Let me pick a position which I know will be unpopular, which must mean it is more correct than the popular position, and then go through some inane line of reasoning to support said position."

"They are the only people who would have actually earned it."

Everyone here is dumber for having read that.

Ask Slashdot: Best Way to Learn C# For Game Programming?

SirSlud Re:Pick up a book and turn off the internet (254 comments)

It's like there's some strange black hole of information available on the internet that only happens around the super specific topic the Ask Slashdotter is interested in. I'm pretty sure all of these folks are the ones that were our best horses in Keener Bingo:

Ask Slashdot: Best Way to Learn C# For Game Programming?

SirSlud Re:It's too slow. (254 comments)

Ding ding. Fuck, C# is fine and dandy and pretty fucking fast, if your target platforms and related asset and tool ecosystems are cool with it, and you're not boneheaded about what you're doing. Questions like these are so silly - if you do so much homework to know what you know and what you don't know, I'm pretty sure you're smart enough to find the right information, books, etc. What a passive aggressive inquiry. If you're convinced you can write an intelligently framed question with tons of context, then why on earth can you not do a little google mining for books that focus on C# game development? This discipline is hardly a secretive cabal.

Lectures Aren't Just Boring, They're Ineffective, Too, Study Finds

SirSlud Re:Old school education (166 comments)

Ah, your one data point throws off his entire asinine argument! (Seriously, the OP is a moron, but I can't find anywhere in his drivel that he stated only boys can have ADHD.)

Lectures Aren't Just Boring, They're Ineffective, Too, Study Finds

SirSlud Re:Never lecture when you can have a seminar (166 comments)

Ugh. The only thing worse than lectures are questions from the audience. Well, actually, I have no problems with questions per se, but anybody who interrupts with a question that is going to be answered within the hour as part of the material, or asks a question that was already answered should be subject to some kind of punishment.
