Skylinux Re:Simple solution (412 comments)

Just realized that I wheel click a lot more. 70% of URLs I open I wheel click to open in a new tab.

Ask Slashdot: Where Can You Get a Good 3-Button Mouse Today?

Skylinux Re:Simple solution (412 comments)

Again what is the big deal with the wheel click?

In X, highlight to copy text and click the wheel to paste .... done.
You need to practice this for 3 minutes to ensure that you don't scroll the wheel while clicking.

To the OP.
A wheel with click offers more functionality then a mouse without a wheel. Not sure what you work on all day but I scroll most of the time and only wheel click .... maybe 30 times a day.
Using a Logitech B110 here, cheap as fuck but works well.

FDA Approves Implantable Vagus Nerve Disruptor For Weight Loss

Skylinux Hey guys (167 comments)

I just registered "HackMyFoodDevice.com" to exchange ideas on how to fool that damn thing.
People with the rubber bands around their stomach manged to defeat their overload and I am pretty sure we can as well.

Come, visit and don't forget to walk by the buffet over there.....

Museum's Adults-Only Nights Show That Alcohol and Science Are a Good Mix

Skylinux Re:What could go wrong (131 comments)

Still shaking my head reading that comment about the "adult activity".

When I was a kid, my mother ordered a pigs stomach and eyes from the local butcher so we could dissect them in school. That was .... 6th or 7th grade.

I am so glad I don't have to grow up today.

Know Your Type: Five Mechanical Keyboards Compared

Skylinux Re:just curious... (190 comments)

Two lines into the summary and I felt like a total idiot for not having major issues typing on my laptop all day long.
Now, where did I put those gold plated fiber optic cables again ....

The Slow Death of Voice Mail

Skylinux Re:youmail (237 comments)

Sadly, though, not all carriers offer to disable voice-mail.

I have the same problem. My provider keeps torturing the shit out of me when I look at other service offerings. Wish there was something I could do to improve my service ... maybe I need to come up with a new word or action.

How about "switch" .... sounds interesting.

The Slow Death of Voice Mail

Skylinux Re:youmail (237 comments)

What's the polite way to continue?

I know this is a very tough problem but you could prevent this by turning the feature off.
This is one of the first things I do when I get a new phone or switch providers.

Voice mail off and caller ID on, done.

RFID-Blocking Blazer and Jeans Could Stop Wireless Identity Theft

Skylinux Hope it works better then my wallet (110 comments)

Paid extra for an RFID blocking wallet. Tested it out the next time I had to pay for lunch with my RFID card.
Placed wallet on reader, card is somewhere in the middle, beeep, thanks for you payment - fuck.

My wallet is a "Protact" with the A written like a German AE. 100% rip off, hope these pants are better.

Royal Mail Pilots 3D Printing Service

Skylinux "bring in their own originals to duplicate" (59 comments)

And they have the nerve calling us thieves for downloading duplicated computer files.
As soon as a government agency does the same thing - gawd we are innovating and offering a great service to the public.

Fuck You!

Sony Pictures Computer Sytems Shut Down After Ransomware Hack

Skylinux Re:Who is going to get the pink slip (155 comments)

One can only hope it hits the right people. Those fucking idiots who demand we open the network to the "bring your device from home" crowd.
Remember when your network admin told you that it is a stupid idea - well here you go.

MARS, Inc: We Are Running Out of Chocolate

Skylinux Re:The Fix: Buy good Chocolate! (323 comments)

Your body would thank you for it!
Eat one every now and then instead of one every day. You spend the same but will value "the one" much more.
The better ingredients also make for a better product which in turn improve your experience even more.

I still remember Hershey from my time in the USA. I wouldn't call it chocolate ....

MARS, Inc: We Are Running Out of Chocolate

Skylinux Re:The Fix: Buy good Chocolate! (323 comments)

Everyone who voted insightful REALLY needs to go to one of those companies and try good chocolate.
I don't each much chocolate so I only but the HQ stuff now. Milka, Mars or even Ritter - they suck compared to a good, higher coca content chocolate.
I get mine from a shop selling coffee because just a chocolate, average coffee tastes .... less then average.

You only live once. Stop stuffing low quality shit into your mouth!

MARS, Inc: We Are Running Out of Chocolate

Skylinux Stop the race to the bottom (323 comments)

Let's hope this ends the race to the bottom of price and quality.
Reality, brown food color (blood) + "natural" flavors - chocolate even cheaper.

FreeBSD 10.1 Released

Skylinux Re:What's that smell? (123 comments)

That smell comes from that dead penguin over there. It blew its head off after failing to become the desktop OS during the past 20 years. To top it of, more and more server admins have started moving to *BSD.
He just could not take it anymore - SystemDisconnected

Assassin's Creed: Unity Launch Debacle Pulls Spotlight Onto Game Review Embargos

Skylinux Re:You are completely correct (474 comments)

Not sure if it is day 1 but watch out for "The Witcher 3" DLCs. They are going to mock larger companies by giving you their DLCs for free, well if you purchase the game. No need to preorder, just buy it.

http://thewitcher.com/news/vie...

One of the VERY few companies left that actually care about the consumer. DRM free from Day 1 - get it at GOG.com

Assassin's Creed: Unity Launch Debacle Pulls Spotlight Onto Game Review Embargos

Skylinux Re:Don’t really get it (474 comments)

Review embargo yes but not until after the release of the game.
This is usually reserved for the real shitty games. The ones that are hyped to no end but ultimately fail to deliver.

Ask Slashdot: How To Unblock Email From My Comcast-Hosted Server?

Skylinux Re:First step is to collect data. (405 comments)

Not only that. Yahoo is one of those providers that will silently drop messages. My server receives an "OK" but the message never makes it to the inbox - puff - gone.

Only happens with Yahoo.
