BitCoins! I have no idea what they have to do with the current discussion, just throwing it out there.

Ask Slashdot: Worst Computer Scene In TV or Movies?

Stunning Tard Re:Star Wars (1200 comments)

R2D2 simply refuses to speak anything other than astromech droid because he's elitist/racist/facist. Same goes for all the astromech droids. Every time they tried to fix the 'bug' they'd get a droid that sabatoges shit instead of fix it so they gave up. Now go rewatch the original trilogy enlightened. If we could understand them it would probably be a never-ending stream of rants on how george lucas fucks up every computer related scene in his movies.

Two Planets Found Sharing One Orbit

Stunning Tard Would a counter-earth be directly observable? (175 comments)

Our orbit isn't perfect. So maybe the counter earth would be visible in the sky just beside the sun. But would go behind it and reappear out the other side each time one of the planets passed perihelion. Is our orbit eccentric enough for this?

FCC Approving Pay-As-You-Go Internet Plans

Stunning Tard Re:Got what ya wanted (414 comments)

I meant to say bytes from different sources costing different. Bytes from different times of the day costing different only concerns me if it leads back to the first one.

FCC Approving Pay-As-You-Go Internet Plans

Stunning Tard Re:Got what ya wanted (414 comments)

Will some bytes cost more than other bytes? That would be an easy next step, so I consider this a step away from net-neutrality.

US Air Force Confirms New Stealth Aircraft

Stunning Tard Re:top secret (287 comments)

Any ideas on why they need such a secret and stealthy UAV in Afghanistan for?

These are overkill for Afganistan but they need field testing anyway?
The taliban got better at dealing with the current drones?
More drones are needed to support the extra troops and the current models are end-of-life?

Canadians Find Traffic Shaping "Reasonable"

Stunning Tard Re:Using the truth to bolster a lie (291 comments)

Perhaps the model of charging X amount for X speed is flawed then.


In Canada/USA/Europe and other locations the current model is broken.

You are misinformed, Rogers already uses a "data and speed billing model". E.g. Their regular plan has a 60GB monthly cap with overage charges. (I'm a customer). So now, with the cap system in place, they need to back the f*** off the traffic shaping agenda.

What Did You Do First With Linux?

Stunning Tard Red Hat Web Server (739 comments)

Seconding Web Server.
It wasn't until I was finished with PC gaming that I tried Ubuntu as a desktop. Before that it was just easier to pirate windows.

3-Man Team Begins Ice-Survey Trek To the North Pole

Stunning Tard Re:Why walk... (137 comments)

I thought nuclear subs could wander under the ice cap. Would it be too hard to measure the ice from one? Or is renting a nuke sub just way out of price range?

Canadian ISP Hijacking DNS Lookup Errors

Stunning Tard Re:easy solution (225 comments)

Thanks so much for the tip. All converted now.
I also took the advice of another comment here and created an account so I could turn off openDNS's search page.
And I must say I'm astounded at the changes Rogers is making lately. And I don't think they're done.
