Small Bank In Kansas Creates the Bank Account of the Future

Squeezer Sounds like a great idea! (156 comments)

Until you think about it. So now the IRS/FBI/NSA will have our financial data in real time. Seems like just another way for the government to track us and look for violations of structuring payments.

The Upcoming Windows 8.1 Apocalypse

Squeezer I shouldn't expect Slashdot to post correct info (293 comments)

Microsoft moved the drop dead installation date until August.


Corporate Windows admins roared, and Microsoft backed off, pulling the patch from the WSUS update server regimen, fixing the WSUS-specific problems, and reinstating it eight days later all while simultaneously extending the drop-dead patching deadline for WSUS (and Intune and System Center Configuration Manager) corporate customers to August.

Accenture Faces Mid-March Healthcare.gov Deadline Or 'Disaster'

Squeezer Hipocracy? (215 comments)

Remember when Bush 43 awarded no-bid contracts to Haliburton and other companies in the LOGCAP program to provide services, supplies, and logistics to troops in iraq and afghanistan in the mid-2000's? There was a lot of outrage by the media and the left about it. Now, Obama awards no-bid contracts to companies to fix healthcare.gov and there isn't a single peep of outrage.

Study Finds Fracking Chemicals Didn't Pollute Water

Squeezer Sounds reasonable (237 comments)

I know I'll get modded way down for this, but it sounds reasonable to me. How can fracking at depths of 10,000+ feet contaminate ground/drinking water that is less than 200 feet deep?

What Keeps You On (or Off) Windows in 2013?

Squeezer 2 words: Group Policy (1215 comments)

Most of my Windows computer usage (both desktop and server) is for business use. I like many things about linux and used it to fill some special needs scenarios, but until it has something comparable to Active Directory Group Policies, I consider using it unless it is a last resort/only option.

In 2011, Fracking Was #2 In Causing Greenhouse Gas In US

Squeezer What about greenhouse gases over the entire planet (210 comments)

I think what is more important are the release of greenhouse gases worldwide versus just the USA. Worldwide volcanoes, undersea fractures in the ocean floor, and underwater magma displacements put more greenhouse gases into the air in a year than man can in a year. I also recall an article that says that methane releases from cows contribute more greenhouse gases than man does as well.

Ask Slashdot: Best Way To Watch TV In 2012?

Squeezer Why I have to stick with Dish/Cable (479 comments)

But I can't find anywhere that streams Formula 1 races live, so that keeps me with Speedchannel on Dish Network.

After 60 Years, Tape Reinserts Itself

Squeezer Tape is still here because its cheap (312 comments)

An enterprise quality LTO-5 tape drive is $1000, and tapes are $100 each. Compare that to an enterprise disk-to-disk backup solution that is $15000 for the hardware and another $5000 for the software. If you are in a business that is only open 8-5, meaning you have a large window to do backups on nights/weekends, which do you think your boss will make you go with?
