Ask Slashdot: Dealing With Flagged Channels For XBMC PVR?

Stradenko Use the analog hole with something like a HD-PVR (328 comments)

Hauppauge's HD-PVR takes component input. It's an expensive and inelegant solution, but it's the one you're looking for.

Ask Slashdot: Where Are the Open Source Jobs?

Stradenko Re:You're a douche (506 comments)

Hi! Skilled people can find jobs. If you can't find one, it's because you suck, you're not trying or you have unreasonable expectations.

Have a nice day.

Go Daddy Loses Over 21,000 Domains In One Day

Stradenko Re:so uh why they'd support it? (356 comments)

I'm sorry, but "Regulation is necessary" seems false to me.

In a slightly longer view, it costs money to assume that you'll continue to have paying customers if you kill/ill them with faulty beef. I think the GoDaddy situation illustrates that.

Go Daddy Loses Over 21,000 Domains In One Day

Stradenko Re:so uh why they'd support it? (356 comments)

The recipe for getting corporate influence out of government is to reduce governmental power in corporate behavior. I'm sorry you hate Rand, but that's the gist of it. If the business isn't controlled by government, then business has no interest in government and we can all go about our lives. If you don't like what company does, please found company and change the industry, or at least your small part of it. The problem with regulation and subsidy is that it obfuscates the costs of delivery, so nobody can tell what makes sense and what does not.

Government regulation of an industry increases the cost of entry for new competition. Established business will support something that gives them that kind of edge.

Iran Shuts Down US Virtual Embassy

Stradenko Re:Really now? (451 comments)

USA isn't as bad as X, therefore USA is good?
I hit my wife with an open's okay, 'though, because this guy I know hits his wife with a baton and at least I'm better than that.

I am an American and I live in the USA. Don't forget that "the courts" are also part of the government. The federal government often and egregiously oversteps the specific privileges granted to it by the constitution; the courts, supreme and otherwise, often allow this to happen. Our government, the judicial part of it included, have made great strides in the restriction of personal freedom, including the field of censorship.

Don't get me wrong, the USA is pretty cool, and our government is definitely an open-handed beater, but just because Iran's government sucks more, that doesn't mean that our government doesn't suck quite a bit on its own.

Blizzard Announces New WoW Expansion: Mists of Pandaria

Stradenko Re:Still a grind (276 comments)

The beauty of 40-man raids was that you could have a half-dozen casuals and as long as they understood the mechanics of what was going on (i.e.: they didn't do stupid stuff) there's still a sizable group of folks to pick up the slack.
