Biological Computer Created at Stanford

SloWave Re:This is not a computer (89 comments)

A transistor is a computer. It just computes exactly one function on exactly one set of inputs. It's a simple finite state machine.

So transistor is a finite state machine is a computer. Well I've got a jar of pennies where each one is a finite state machine and therefore each one is a computer. Or else maybe they should start teaching more engineering and less computer science.

Iranian Military Says It's Copying US Drone

SloWave Re:Send the MPAA (350 comments)

Just before 911 the FBI was spending more time and money on finding online copyright violators than finding terrorists. They were even labelling violators as copyright terrorists. It's only a matter of time before the FBI becomes MPAA and RIAA lackeys again.

SloWave My comment on the leaked documents (517 comments)

My opinion is that if these documents are true then Heartland Institute should be dragged across burning hot coals and their stomachs roasted and eaten.

Ask Slashdot: Advice For Using a Cell Phone In China?

SloWave Re:Asia (149 comments)

Agreed. Just buy a SIM card from one of the small shops located almost anywhere. Don't buy it from the malls directly across from the border crossings however. You will get ripped off if you do so. Phones are pretty cheap also if bought from the shops selling SIM cards.

NASA Names Best & Worst Sci-Fi Movies of All Time

SloWave How did they miss Marooned? (610 comments)

Marooned should've been listed as one of the most realistic movies since it almost happened just a few years after the movie was made (Apollo 13).

Is the ISS Really Worth $100 Billion?

SloWave I feel cheated by this thing. (503 comments)

I remember when they shut down the Apollo program to do this thing it was suppose to be a permanent hopping off point in space to get us out to the other planets and beyond. They never told us it was just going to go around circles just outside the atmosphere and let astronauts perform little science fair experiments and do little else. Basically, I believe now the space station and the space shuttle were just welfare programs for aerospace companies. Now NASA wants to crash it back to earth and loose everything. I don't blame Russia and the other countries wanting to detach their modules and taking them to play elsewhere. If NASA really wants to salvage the space station project, they need to push it to a higher, more useful orbit, and start building some real interplanetary manned (and unmanned) spaceships out there.

HDCP Master Key Is Legitimate; Blu-ray Is Cracked

SloWave Re:Weve seen that argument before (1066 comments)

I can almost picture Sony Recipe Corporation and Disney Recipe International suing moms and pops for cooking dinner using pirated recipes...

HDCP Master Key Is Legitimate; Blu-ray Is Cracked

SloWave Re:not protects (1066 comments)

Actually, the expansion of corporate monopolies by use of DRM and DMCA restricts what used to be inalienable rights of both artists and users far more that most people imagine. It is a very dangerous situation right now. Anything to weaken DRM and DMCA is good, at least until the the political process starts working for the people again.

Does Net Neutrality Violate the Fifth Amendment?

SloWave Verizon and Comcast now owe me a bunch of money (341 comments)

Let me get this straight. Both Verizon and Comcast have lines running across the back of my property in the right of way. Since obtaining the rights to this passage they have each added massive amounts of programming which I have never been compensated for. Looks like it is time to started adding up a bill for each of them. Also, since they have no cable neutrality, I am claiming the right to continuous deep inspection of their programming to make sure they stick to their original agreements for use of my property.
