Creationism In Texas Public Schools

Traksius Egas Re:What's the big deal? (770 comments)

Since charter schools aren't required by the government, your arguments are, and have been, illogical.

But we are required to pay taxes to said government that ends up funding the religious dogma in those charter schools. It is irrelevant that we have the option to have our children attend the charter schools, paying for them is not.
Therefore, illegal.

RSA Flatly Denies That It Weakened Crypto For NSA Money

Traksius Egas Re:Maybe Snowden Stole a Honeypot (291 comments)

in fact, it is so irresponsible to give one person access to so much secret information that either the NSA is completely incompetent or it would have a reason to permit one contractor access to so many documents.

Have you even read anything about how Edward Snowden came to be in possession of said documents? Nothing was GIVEN to him. He used other peoples accounts that DID have access to said documents via social engineering and other means.

Germany: We Think NSA May Have Tapped Chancellor Merkel's Cell Phone

Traksius Egas Re:Shocked (267 comments)

Really? Would you say its safe to assume Germany is tapping the white house?

This has been done for hundreds if not thousands of years. Even Bill Clinton was accused of secretly tapping at least one of his interns.

Tor Usage More Than Doubles In August

Traksius Egas Re:Pirate bay (186 comments)

Yep. I know of numerous people that downloaded it and started using it the day it was released. Not that I'm absolutely convinced it doesn't have any NSA claw marks in it though.

Programming a Wearable Android Device

Traksius Egas Usable on a motorcycle? (53 comments)

I'm a bike rider (Motor, not foot powered) and I can think of many uses this would be handy for when on a cruise around the country side. The standard email/speed/weather apps would be handy. But how about adding a rear, wide-angle camera view that I could glimpse at without turning my head around. That would be pretty useful.

Ask Slashdot: Finding a Trustworthy VPN Service?

Traksius Egas Cryptocloud VPN services (193 comments)

I've used Cryptocloud for many years with very good success. Not the cheapest option out there. But they have many options for connecting, numerous countries in which to connect to, and many different payment options. They take security/privacy seriously if that is a concern. They do no bandwidth throttling and no logs are kept on the VPN appliances. Well worth checking out.

YouTube Identifies Birdsong As Copyrighted Music

Traksius Egas Re:Profit & Lies (730 comments)

I want to thank you for that answer.

That has to be one of the best responses I have read here on /. in many years. (And I've been here for a quite a few).

Pointed and non-inflammatory IMHO.

Combining Two Kinects To Make Better 3D Video

Traksius Egas Re:Two eyes are better than one (106 comments)

This could be solved by replacing the IR source in the 'projector' (actually a point source and a pinhole grid) with one of a different wavelength, and adding appropriate filters to the IR cameras in each Kinect.

Or maybe timing the grid light to be off while the other camera is on and vis-versa. Alternating back and forth quickly like the 3D LCD 'shutter' lenses. This way the grids would not interfere with each other. Don't have to turn off the cameras, just don't use the 3D grid data from those frames where the opposite grid is being used.

Just my .01 worth. :)

US Supreme Court Upholds Indefinite Confinement

Traksius Egas Re:Think of the constitution. (745 comments)

Consider, do you need to be convicted by a jury of your peers to be confined to quarantine if you have a dangerous infectious disease? Is quarantine of those with infectious diseases punishment?

What if that person has been diagnosed with something like HIV? Should they be quarantined against their will since they poses a risk to public safety?

It's a slippery slope with shoddy breaks.

Remus Project Brings Transparent High Availability To Xen

Traksius Egas Re:Already done by VMware (137 comments)

Mod parent up +1.

Some people just think that money still grows on trees. I work for a local government who is migrating to VMWare for some of our core servers. But we have many other servers that could be virtualized with HA using this, but for a fraction of the cost.

Does anyone else find it interesting that STARGATE.COM and PYRAMID.COM were registered number 25 and 29 respectively?

Just goes to show you that conspiracies can be found everywhere if you look hard enough. :)
