Ars Reviews Skype Translator

TheDarkMaster Re:One annoyance... (70 comments)

Knowing that you work on Skype, could you please ask the folks responsible for the instant text messaging code to remove that stupid idea of converting *text* in text? Or at least make this feature can be disabled permanently by the user (the actual hack is lost when Skype is closed)?

Australian Target Stores Ban GTA V For Depictions of Violence Against Women

TheDarkMaster Re:Why only women? (310 comments)

Well, I was not talking about domestic violence, but violence in general. Then expanding my previous question: Why only violence against women is unacceptable when any violence against anyone (women, men, children, etc) should be unacceptable?

James Watson's Nobel Prize Goes On Auction This Week

TheDarkMaster Re: Of Course It Was (355 comments)

You have a pretty arrogant and ignorant attitude towards a person that you do not have the faintest idea who he/she is. And experience tells me that people with this attitude should be summarily ignored.

You that read "race" where I said "group". But, as I said before you can not even touch on the subject of racial differences because it is taboo.

James Watson's Nobel Prize Goes On Auction This Week

TheDarkMaster Re: Of Course It Was (355 comments)

It is because of comments like yours that the subject is taboo. I could never genuinely investigate why this group or that group are more successful without some lunatic appearing immediately and saying that I want to "justify" the supremacy of the group X or Y.. I, for myself, do not have any interest in these petty "race supremacy wars" from humans, I want to to understand the reasons of the underdevelopment to be able to fix them if I ever find the cause of it, NOT to justify someone's political agenda.

Sidenote: Do not waste your time reading the Portuguese version of the article on the Real plan, is a pile of ideological garbage. The English version describes better the fundamental reasons for the plan's success.

James Watson's Nobel Prize Goes On Auction This Week

TheDarkMaster Re:Is it true... (355 comments)

Well, this is really off-topic but is interesting to explain to you why this particular plan worked. The plan worked because he killed the inertial inflation, a very serious, cancerous problem on Brazil some time ago. Brazilian traders also were (and still are) extremely corrupt and greedy, raising prices every fucking day if they had nothing to stop them... The plan also killed this fundamental point by allowing the Brazilians like me to buy cheap overseas, forcing local merchants to sell at lower prices or having to file for bankruptcy. This killed one of the biggest motivators for the hyperinflation.

But it is a pity that the next government threw most of it away when leave Real depreciate. Because when the government did it, he has made foreign goods expensive again and it left the door open for our merchants (who still corrupt and very, very greedy) start all over again.

TheDarkMaster Re:Is it true... (355 comments)

Brazil, my country, also also had several problems with dictators, overthrown governments and empires trying to make my country in their backyard. But despite that we are in a much better situation than Africa. Why? Notice, we also have corruption in generous quantities.

The question of the AC is valid, period. As always the devil lives in the details, and usually the texts on the subject forget that this question of intelligence (and perhaps racial differences) is only part of the problem alone does not answer the greater question.

You are correct, but you will be modded as flamebait/troll because is a taboo subject and the humans are too much more likely to think in a social/politics way than logically.

TheDarkMaster Re:Mod the parent up. (488 comments)

Exactly. I for one could easily create code for Firefox, apply a good deal of KISS in the code and some concepts derived from the military with whom I work. But for that I will need to deal with a bunch of retarded teenagers who want to use slow as hell javascript to do the entire browser, among other really retarded design decisions... And for free? Sorry, but no.
