TheDarkMaster Re:ads (175 comments)

The situation is even worse when you remember that the overwhelming majority of the advertisements try to install crappyware on your computer, or offer dubious products.

The Daily Harassment of Women In the Game Industry

TheDarkMaster Re:Pft (960 comments)

Women wants only alpha males, period.

Almost all men are not alpha male, but instinct says "screw it, try anyway" with varying degrees of intensity ( depending on the education of the male can be from a polite "hello" to a rude "hi delicious").

Nowadays, if a non-alpha male approach a woman, she considers the approach as an act of aggression, regardless of what the male say ("hello" or "hi delicious"). Only a alpha male gets a friendly response.

Result: The educated males give up, and women end knowing only rudes because only rudes insist regardless of the response of women.

Researchers Find Evidence of How Higgs Particle Imparts Mass

TheDarkMaster Re:Misleading title (91 comments)

I think the same thing. I found nothing inside the TFA about the mechanism they are testing nor what is the relation with the obtained data.

Researchers Find Evidence of How Higgs Particle Imparts Mass

TheDarkMaster Re:So, uh... How? (91 comments)

I second that. I honestly are unable to find on the summary or TFA the explanation of why researchers think they found evidence of how the Higgs works, TFA seems to speak only about energy levels, nothing about the operating mechanism and how the data suggest that it is correct.

Leaked Build of Windows 9 Shows Start Menu Return

TheDarkMaster Re:Microsoft is wasting people's time (346 comments)

You are a really really stupid and insistent troll, impressive... When I need portability, I just use my netbook (eight hours or more of battery). And when I want to play games or do something CPU intensive, I go to the desktop. I simply use the best tool for each task, rather than a asshole troll who not content with being stupid still try to offend those who are not stupid.

Leaked Build of Windows 9 Shows Start Menu Return

TheDarkMaster Re:Microsoft craps its pants (346 comments)

Look... After more than ten years using many, many Linux distros, my conclusion is that the linux desktop (linux server works fine, thank you) is still a work in progress and probably always will be, never ready for serious use. Because whenever I think my desktop is finally usable, some retarded change something fundamental (gnome team, seen them around?) and I have to fix it again. And even when it is working the overall desktop performance is always inferior to the performance of Windows on the same hardware.

Leaked Build of Windows 9 Shows Start Menu Return

TheDarkMaster Re:Microsoft is wasting people's time (346 comments)

How many minutes you can stay unplugged, stupid? And if you need to stay connected to a power outlet to play, then what is the point of using a laptop? And remember that a video card of notebook is considerably lower than the equivalent desktop board, because otherwise it would melt your notebook on your lap. Inform yourself before you write shit.

Using 800x600 for resolution? Or paying triple for the same hardware and having to be plugged into an outlet all the time to not finish off the battery in 20 minutes?

Dude, you are a very, very dumb piece of shit. Many people use computers to work, not to play flash games.

The Pentagon's $399 Billion Plane To Nowhere

TheDarkMaster Re:What difference now does it make? :) Sunk costs (364 comments)

The problem with the project is that it is plain stupid. You have no way to make a plane it an excellent dogfighter, an excellent striker and the excelent ground support at the same time. A sane general build three aircraft each specializing in something, such as the F22 as fighter, the F15 as a striker and the A10 as close air support. They tried the "Jack of all trades" with the FB-111 and failed, I thought they had learned their lesson. But Lockheed promises that he will be all of this to sell the project and bring the pork home.

Google's Experimental Newsroom Avoids Negative Headlines

TheDarkMaster Re:Censorship Alive and Well.... (109 comments)

I suspect that you are very close to the truth. Football here has always been a way to keep the masses under control, making them worry about football and forget the problems of the country. And if you take away the will of the people to watch football with such humiliation, what would happen? The controllers of the world are probably worried.

Arecibo Radio Telescope Confirms Extra-galactic Fast Radio Pulses

TheDarkMaster Is so difficult? (95 comments)

My bet is that someone are saying "hello, have anyone there listening?" and they may be closer than researchers believe.

Alcatel-Lucent's XG-FAST Pushes 10,000Mbps Over Copper Phone Lines

TheDarkMaster Re:Terrible article. (149 comments)

Still not enough. As other readers wrote, the quality of existing phone lines varies between questionable and mediocre, and most users will not live in a radius of 70 meters from the distribution point. It is already difficult to operate a 15Mbps ADSL, then imagine 1Gbps.

Alcatel-Lucent's XG-FAST Pushes 10,000Mbps Over Copper Phone Lines

TheDarkMaster Re:fiber or bust (149 comments)

Note that many of the /. readers do not speak english, and the Google translator is very, very bad. Is even worse in my case as example, because many ideas in my native language (brazilian portuguese) are very difficult to express using english, even when you know how to write in english. So, unless you know that the commenter is from a country where english is the native language, take a break.

UK Computing Student Jailed After Failing To Hand Over Crypto Keys

TheDarkMaster Re:Seems appropriate (353 comments)

The problem that I see on the issue is that once you hand your computer to the police, it's easy, too easy for them to plant evidence.

How secure is Windows XP limited user account?

TheDarkMaster writes "I need to grant user access to my pc for parents. Of course I can't say what a hell my little sister (or others) can download from net, and I need to use a limited user account for her. But, how secure is this account? They can survive a "OMG, CLICK HERE NOW!!!!" "insuspect" file or something else?"
