Games Workshop Bullies Author Over Use of the Words 'Space Marine'

SpacePunk Re:It is still on Amazon (211 comments)

Just because an 'e' or an 'i' is thrown in front of something, it doesn't make it any different than the non 'e' or 'i' version.

Publicly Shaming Laptop Thieves Catches Bystanders in the Crossfire

SpacePunk Re:got it fixed? (372 comments)

They fixed her shit, they got paid. Expecting all that other crap without explicitly asking for it would be like expecting a mechanic to steam clean your upholstery after fixing a fucking alternator.

Wikileaks' Assange Begins Extradition Battle

SpacePunk Re:News For Nerds (479 comments)

It's been a steady spiral into what would be common denominator areas for quite a few years. But, then again, you'd have to define what 'news for nerds' is. Some nerds care about this kind of stuff.

Two Major Ad Networks Found Serving Malware

SpacePunk Re:I've seen stuff coming from MSN for quite somet (330 comments)

I doubt they check the scripts before they are put up for rotation, and this is their chance to find a scapegoat. As long as they get paid, I doubt they care to check.

New Tool Blocks Downloads From Malicious Sites

SpacePunk It's not yet available (192 comments)

Just like flying cars, warp travel, or a cure for cancer.

WTF folks. Why link it if it's not available? Sure, the "golly gee wiz" effect might get a whole five minutes if someone reads very slowly, but if it's not available then linking to it doesn't do anybody any good. By the time it does become available it will be long forgotten to all except those that make out a 3x5 card, and tacks it up on the wall.

Music Festival Producer Pre-Sues Bootleggers

SpacePunk Re:Pre-disbarment (422 comments)

Naw. No impact there. Now, if someone would start disbarment proceedings against Jane Doe first then name Cara R. Burns as that Jane Doe after the disbarment proceedings are underway then it would be popcorn worthy.

Solar Plane Completes 24-Hour Flight

SpacePunk Re:How about winter flight (88 comments)

The LHC is noteworthy for breaking down.

Of course, we aren't talking about the LHC or your Atom powered computer. I simply do not see the hoopla over the aircraft until it flies on a day with the shortest period of daylight. Then I'll think it's fairly 'neat'. The lack of any serious payload is another thing entirely. Any jackass with enough money could have done this. It's a small, tiny, increment in air flight technology. Whoop it up all you like, eventually it won't lead anywhere useful.

Solar Plane Completes 24-Hour Flight

SpacePunk How about winter flight (88 comments)

Ok, it works fine on one of the days of the year that has the longest period of daylight, but how well does it work on a day that has the shortest period of daylight? Just because something works in optimum conditions doesn't make it noteworthy.

Tracking Down Wi-Fi Interference?

SpacePunk Ham radio (499 comments)

I once had wireless internet from a local ISP. Between myself and the tower was a ham radio operator that evidently likes to walk all over the frequencies. I could never get the douche bag to quit fucking things up on a regular basis.
