The Current State of Linux Video Editing

TheInternetGuy Re:Attitudes (223 comments)

This is why FOSS will always be buggy and crashy.

No, this is why Developers will always be miserable working for 'the man'.

Man Saves Wife's Sight By 3D Printing Her Tumor

TheInternetGuy Re:rubbish (164 comments)

Whoa there buddy. Maybe you should see a nice psychiatrist or perhaps a bartender.

This is SLASHDOT (says so right on the top).

Nobody needs real psychiatrists any more. Using some robotics components and a 3D printer you can easily print your own psychiatrist at home these days.
Now the bartender.... that is a completely different story.

Anyone Can Now Launch Their Own Version of the Pirate Bay

TheInternetGuy Re:The Legit Bay (81 comments)

Free means you don't pay. Among other things...

Free means giving speeches about beer.

Actually I think it means giving speeches about how no beer is truly free, and hence what ever you are speaking about shouldn't be free as in beer, but rather free as in Cuba Libre...... Hey wait a minute....

No, You Can't Seize Country TLDs, US Court Rules

TheInternetGuy Re:I thought (120 comments)

I think it's the other way round. If they cut off your arms, you can run away, but once you fall down, it's going to be a bitch to get back up again.

It's just a flesh wound!

More Eye Candy Coming To Windows 10

TheInternetGuy Re:how pretty (209 comments)

Linux itself (the actual kernel) is very stable, maybe even more stable than the base Windows NT kernel. But as a desktop operating system?

Well you just wait and see until 2015, that is going to be the year of the Linux Desktop.

Battery Breakthrough: Researchers Claim 70% Charge In 2 Minutes, 20-Year Life

TheInternetGuy Re:No mention on capacity though (395 comments)

And note that I won't call you an idiot, just because you are wrong.

No, but you'd be totally entitled to call him an idiot for calling other people idiots while being wrong himself.

Yeah, I was trying to set some kind of positive precedence.Guess I forgot where I was, Sorry. :-/

Battery Breakthrough: Researchers Claim 70% Charge In 2 Minutes, 20-Year Life

TheInternetGuy Re:No mention on capacity though (395 comments)

Do you mean a 100kW/hr battery? There is no such thing as a 100kW battery. Idiot.

Do you mean a 100kWh (or possibly kW*h) battery? There is no such thing as a 100kW/hr battery. And note that I won't call you an idiot, just because you are wrong.

Chimpanzee "Personhood" Is Back In Court

TheInternetGuy Re:Does that mean they'll get to vote? (385 comments)

If chimps are people, will they be able to vote? Hold political office? Cue the jokes.

I don't think that they would necessary need to be declared legally competent persons, just because they were given personhood status. That being said, I think I agree with those who say that perhaps we need a new classification instead.

Fusion Reactor Concept Could Be Cheaper Than Coal

TheInternetGuy Re:"will present results Oct. 17 (315 comments)

Please post again after completing 6th grade earth science. Thank you.

I know this guy is posting as AC, but he doesn't deserve the -1 moderation and condescending remarks. Thermal pollution as a contributing factor to global warming is real, and in my opinion not discussed enough.

Living On a Carbon Budget: The End of Recreation As We Know It?

TheInternetGuy Re:Lots of cheap carbon stuff (652 comments)

While I largely agree with the point of your post, I think that in context of global warming it would be even better to look at CO2 emission/ capita. It doesn't change things around all that much, but treats countries like Iceland a bit better as they use mainly renewable energy sources. http://data.worldbank.org/indi...

Maps Suggest Marco Polo May Have "Discovered" America

TheInternetGuy Re:So the Italians win the latest round ... (276 comments)

It's "Discovery by a civilized man", so Norsemen mustn't count.

Essentially, to discover a continent you apparently need: 1 - To be white. 2 - A cup of tea. (ideally, with biscuits) 3 - A towel.

The Norsemen did indescribable things to civilized men with towels and cups of tea.

Wave Power Fails To Live Up To Promise

TheInternetGuy Re:Golden opportunity missed... (198 comments)

I think you should take a quick shufty at "Jokes For Dummies".

A simple whoosh will do nicely here on Slashdot, thank you very much :)

I probably should had put a ;-> smiley after my original comment to indicate that I was also not very serious.

Wave Power Fails To Live Up To Promise

TheInternetGuy Re:Golden opportunity missed... (198 comments)

The problem with wave farms is that they harness the gravitational power between Earth and the Moon. If this energy is dissipated, this gravitational force is reduced, and as a consequence, the Moon will move towards the Earth in an increased pace.

I think you might need to go back and re read physics for dummies.

Reanalysis of Clinical Trials Finds Misleading Results

TheInternetGuy Re:Decline Effect (74 comments)

Exactly, like with the theory of evolution and intelligent design. If the same amount of time was put towards the proof of intelligent design as with the theory of evolution, the atheists wouldn't have a leg to stand on.

Well the Intelligent design people had a couple of thousands of years working on their story. The scientists only ~160 years since Darwin wrote his 'On the Origin of the Species'. So I'd say we should give the scientists another 1900 years before we make any conclusions.

Japan underestimated the risks

TheInternetGuy TheInternetGuy writes  |  more than 3 years ago

TheInternetGuy (2006682) writes "

A UN nuclear safety team (IAEA) on a visit to the country has said that Japan underestimated the risk of a tsunami hitting a nuclear power plant. However, the response to the nuclear disaster which followed the 11 March quake and tsunami was "exemplary".

I am wondering how the IAEA came to the conclusion that the disaster response has been exemplary. I live close enough that I have to wash the vegetables from my garden before eating ( yeah I know, that's a good Idea any way), so I know it enough to have an opinion.
To be honest, lets not forget that they have been working under very difficult circumstances. But Exemplary??? Not so much."
