Linux Needs Resource Management For Complex Workloads

Stumbles Re:mainframe is old crap for geezers (161 comments)

Why yes, yes it is nothing more than a rehash of the old days where dumb terminals connected to a mainframe. Sometimes those dumb terminals were connected via terrestrial microwaves or phone lines. Now where did I put my 3270 and where did I put my modified termcap file for a vt220.

The Last Three Months Were the Hottest Quarter On Record

Stumbles Re:"Supposed fact" (552 comments)

I like how they try their hardest to pretend to themselves and present to others how the science is settled. If it were such a settled fact they would not need to repeatedly tell us all how right they are and oh not need to monkey with the numbers to justify.

The Last Three Months Were the Hottest Quarter On Record

Stumbles Oh yes (552 comments)

You mean the raw data that was "adjusted" to make it not seem so hot in years past so today's weather could be claimed as warming? Please tell me another lie you lying bastards. Science indeed by any other name is just a pseudo rose. Wake me up when your climate models can predict within .01% what the weather will be like for the next year. Till then keep on massaging your data-sets and lying to yourselves.

People Who Claim To Worry About Climate Change Don't Cut Energy Use

Stumbles Really? (709 comments)

Took you dumb asses this long to figure that out? All you need to do is visit some place like oh I don't know, lets say Black Mountain NC. Lots of tree huggers there, funny at seeing the unexpected large numbers of H2/H3 and the like in peoples driveways. To say I am in shock and awe is to lie.

Rocket Scientist Designs "Flare" Pot That Cooks Food 40% Faster

Stumbles Re:Maybe a good idea...maybe not. (204 comments)

Well you are not a rocket scientist so would not understand. Trying to use everyday situations to justify your experience is not a factor because you see, you don't carry your gas stove with you on high altitude climbs.

Hacking a Tesla Model S Could Net $10,000 Prize

Stumbles Figures (77 comments)

Instead of voiding the warranty Tesla should encourage the activity and request details of any successful hack so any security issues can be fixed.

Normal Humans Effectively Excluded From Developing Software

Stumbles Some are slow on the uptake. (608 comments)

New technologies, once exciting for the sake of newness, now seem like hassles. I'm less and less tolerant of hokey marketing filled with superlatives.

Really? What to you so long? I reached that point long ago, like the last part of the last century.

Study: Global Warming Solvable If Fossil Fuel Subsidies Given To Clean Energy

Stumbles Re: How do you solve a problem that doesn't exist (385 comments)

The crux of it is this in your statement; "...settled enough". There are still many things we do not fully understand about gravity and your 97 astrophysicists would understand they do not have all the answers.

The three remaining astrophysicists would get run over at the next zebra crossing next to the nearest black hole. Which would serve them right for being an asshats to think they have all the answers.

Study: Whales Are Ecosystem "Engineers"

Stumbles Re:As an Engineer,,, (64 comments)

Welcome to the new age where dipships mascarading as researchers redefine much of what we know; I'll not feel sorry for them when they get run over at the next zebra crossing.

Study: Whales Are Ecosystem "Engineers"

Stumbles Yeah sure (64 comments)

you forgot to include my farts while swimming in the ocean contributing to global warming/climate change or whatever you dipshits are calling now. How much data did you have to manipulate to conform to your religion?

Study: Global Warming Solvable If Fossil Fuel Subsidies Given To Clean Energy

Stumbles Re: How do you solve a problem that doesn't exist? (385 comments)

Predicting what will happen does not mean you have interpreted a phenomenon correctly; it is only accurate as you understand it and not necessarily the map as being a true representation of the territory.

Study: Global Warming Solvable If Fossil Fuel Subsidies Given To Clean Energy

Stumbles Re:Start with coal... (385 comments)

Well that's a large part of the problem, isn't it? Alternative power sources that are most importantly the things you state?

From a producing electron flow as the primary means point of view, we are still using 1800s technology; steam. Imagine that, as technologically advanced as some think we are our main method to produce electricity relies on boiling water.

Until we can figure out a way that does it in a different way without the need for mechanical transformations its just substituting one inefficient method for non reliable methods.

Stumbles Re: How do you solve a problem that doesn't exist? (385 comments)

Yeah and when you're 97 doctors say the science is settled as the pro-global warming scientist insist upon then you know for sure those 97 doctors are talking out their ass. No science is ever settled.

Stumbles Re:Infinite Bank Account (385 comments)

Your assumption there is no compassion contained in those with these infinite bank account owners reveals you have the same level of blinders as your hippies. Neither is your example compassionate. It cannot be as you are leading the reader to choose the option of taking by force what is not theirs under the name of misplaced altruism and attempted shaming.

There is no dilemma, the answer is simple; keep what I got and use it as I see fit; the hippies and you can kiss my ass.
