How to Maintain Lab Safety While Making Viruses Deadlier

SuperDre Spacestation (218 comments)

Any of these kinds of experiments/research should be done on spacestations (or maybe deepsea-stations) where it isn't a threath to populations and enviroments.. Scientists are crazy to even try these kinds of experiments..

AMD Prepares To Ship Gaming SSDs

SuperDre great... (110 comments)

And the news arrives just on the day my Intel 330 SSD at work died (which is the second SSD which gave me problems).. Even though I have a Samsung 840 EVO at home, I still am very hesitant on SSD's in regard to durability and reliability...

Linus Torvalds: "GCC 4.9.0 Seems To Be Terminally Broken"

SuperDre Re:I know you're trying to be funny, but... (739 comments)

LOL, I also lost days when I upgraded Ubuntu, and all I thought I was doing was upDATing as it was presented as an update (at least in the way windows shows updates).. Then again when I tried to update ubuntu on a later stage, the same kind of crap happened again (now on a different part).. I have never had anything happen like that with windows (starting with Windows 3), so you can imagine how I feel about Linux... It's one amateuristic user unfriendly OS, but it's getting better with every release... Oh and people thinking Linux is more safe than the latest Windows, think again...........

Microsoft's CEO Says He Wants to Unify Windows

Well, if they mean with unifying, going to keep the current Windows which uses WinAPI, then ok, but if they mean going all WindowsRT, they will loose a lot of businesses...

Russian Government Edits Wikipedia On Flight MH17

SuperDre who cares.. (667 comments)

Who cares if the russians supplied the missles to down the aircraft.. It's about who actually shot down the plane.. It's not like the US hasn't supplied "terrorists" (oh I mean rebels) with weaponry that killed A LOT of innocent people, it's not like other countries have supplied weapons to groups who used them..
And it all looks like a big tragic mistake as the plane was 'just' mistaken for a transportcarrier..

Obama Administration Says the World's Servers Are Ours

SuperDre trivial (749 comments)

yeah, it's trivial.. As an european I can imagine something like that even though I'm quite opposed to it. But if the warant wouldn't be valid, all US companies would store their information abroad and nothing can be searched..
But I can imagine a way around this problem.. For instance, just let an irish person setup a blank corporation which 'owns' the serverpark and rents the servers back to Microsoft. This way the servers aren't owned by the US company and therefore cannot fall under the warrant..

Ode To Sound Blaster: Are Discrete Audio Cards Still Worth the Investment?

SuperDre no.. (502 comments)

well at least nog to 99% of the people.. Most people can't hear the better sound anyway, they have 'crap' headphones (and no, those $200+ headphones don't make it any better).
For most people even the integrated soundcard itself really isn't the problem, but the speakers/receivers they use..
And soundquality is still in the eye of the beholder, some people like high pitched sounds better than low frequency or full bass.. it's all a personal taste..
Only real audiophiles will likely notice anything from a dedicated soundcard, but then again, there still is quite some difference between the integrated soundcards on motherboards..

The Lovelace Test Is Better Than the Turing Test At Detecting AI

SuperDre not a great test (285 comments)

the lovelace test is not a great test if a machine has to create something original, all by itself, as a lot of real humans can't even do that, so a lot of humans wouldn't even pass the lovelace test..

NVIDIA Is Better For Closed-Source Linux GPU Drivers, AMD Wins For Open-Source

Theater Chain Bans Google Glass

SuperDre Re:Battery Life (376 comments)

It's something you should consider before deciding to only use google glasses (GG) as your primary glasses.. You know in advance that you are not allowed to wear the GG, so you should just have a second pair of regular glasses with you.. I even wonder how 3D glasses fit over the GG as they are much more protrusive as normal glasses..
Also you must be aware there are area's which also forbid GG like some bars and restaurants.. It's your own fault if you're a moron not to have a second pair of regular glasses at hand for cases like that..

Strange New World Discovered: The "Mega Earth"

SuperDre pffff.. (147 comments)

And that's the problem with a lot of scientists, they can only think in what already has been theorized and can't look beyond that.. Just like they say 'laws of physics', there are no solid 'laws of physics' as those 'laws' have only been created by man who just doesn't know every little detail.. Ofcourse it's great to have some guidelines, but as I said, a lot of scientists can't see beyond those guidelines and see them as a definite border.. Well, if we all wouldn't see past those 'laws' then we would still believe the earth was flat...
