Travis Mansbridge Human laws? (385 comments)

Most chimpanzees would likely end up right back in prison on destruction of property laws, among other things.

CEO of Spyware Maker Arrested For Enabling Stalkers

Travis Mansbridge Re: feminists controll the law! (195 comments)

Firstly, reliance on anecdotal evidence alone is succumbing to a logical fallacy. Secondly, demonstrate that these women somehow get a "blanket pass" or even your anecdotal evidence holds no weight.

Japan's Mt. Ontake Erupts, Stranding Hundreds of Hikers

Travis Mansbridge Re:15 sec (41 comments)

If you ever find yourself in that situation, wet a rag or the front of your shirt and hold it over your mouth, this will act as a filter for ash and you should still be able to breathe.

Australian Senate Introduces Laws To Allow Total Internet Surveillance

Travis Mansbridge Re:Great (212 comments)

Be aware that Australia is an arm of the ECHELON or "Five Eyes" spying network, also known as AUSCANNZUKUS (for its members, Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the UK and the US). As long as laws exist in any of these countries allowing total internet surveillance, they can simply hand over any information gleaned to the other four parties.

IBM Solar Concentrator Can Produce12kW/day, Clean Water, and AC

Travis Mansbridge Re:Cubic litres (268 comments)

I'm pretty sure it cleans that amount of water (which the title refers to as "producing clean water") and I'm still not sure where they got AC, unless that's what they're calling the cooling done by the water as it draws heat from the solar units.

NSA Metadata Collection Gets 90-Day Extension

Travis Mansbridge Re:Fucking Government doesn't care about US (73 comments)

Actually, while the 4th amendment was extended around the '50s to protect telephonic communications, no such extension has been made yet to cover electronic communication. That's the real problem, this is still constitutional because our government is stuck in the 20th century.

A group of companies agreeing not to raise workers' wages so they don't entice them away from each other is the essence of non-competition.

Ask Slashdot: What Are the Best Games To Have In Your Collection?

Travis Mansbridge Re:This is very Subjective. (382 comments)

Mario 64, by today's standards, is a pretty boring platformer.

Are you kidding? I just played through this again the other day. Flying, swimming, getting shot out of a cannon, riding a turtle shell like a skateboard.. Mario 64 is one of the best 3D games of all time. Ocarina of Time still stands up too.

And while I'm here, Castlevania: Symphony of the Night.

Little Big Planet delayed due to Quran references

Travis Mansbridge Travis Mansbridge writes  |  about 6 years ago

Travis Mansbridge (830557) writes "According to an article over at CNET, the much-anticipated title 'Little Big Planet' will be delayed until October 27th, due to phrases from the Quran being used in two of the background tracks. The developer, Media Molecule, said that they prepared a 'zero day' patch to resolve the issue, however '...a decision was made within Sony that the right thing to do for quality and support...was to replace existing disks.'"

Demonoid is Back

Travis Mansbridge Travis Mansbridge writes  |  more than 6 years ago

Travis Mansbridge (830557) writes "It appears that the bit-torrent tracker Demonoid (Shut down on November 9, 2007) has come back online, apparently under new management. From the site's front page:

Since a few months ago, Deimos, the site administrator, lacks the necessary time to take care of the website, because of personal matters he's been needing to attend to. For this reason, he has decided to leave the site staff.
Before leaving, he assigned a new site administrator from among his friends to take care of the site. The old moderator team will continue helping with the site, unchanged. We will try to keep running everything just as it always has been.
The trackers and website seem to be working properly, and should any issues arise, they will be taken care of as soon as possible. The site might be going on and offline over the next days as we work out any problems.
The message is signed by the new admin apparent, 'Umlauf'."
