This has been known for quite some time. There's been many articles on this issue as well as, IIRC, there's been ones here on Slashdot too.

Tripp-phpBB Re:Just the east coast? (106 comments)

I live on the east coast and I would probably have to say yes. Over here we love to watch the countdown and ball drop.

Bank of America Cuts Off Wikileaks Transactions

Tripp-phpBB Counting down (467 comments)

Let's make wagers on how long it takes until Anonymous DDOS's them because at this point it's not a matter if it will happen but when.

USDA Services Moving To the Microsoft Cloud

Tripp-phpBB Fail (146 comments)

Maybe the CIA and similar agencies will move their services to the cloud next and what fun that will be to watch. Might make getting documents for Wikileaks a bit easier.

The New Reality of Gaming

Tripp-phpBB Wheres the fun (122 comments)

Funny, I was just discussing this with a friend recently. I used to game a lot when I was younger and got out of it for quite sometime other then playing a few PC games. I recently got a PS3 and although the graphics and everything else in new games is awesome, I felt like I was missing something. What I noticed was games seem and feel too real these days. To an extent, that's what we've always strive for it to make games more real and exciting but have we passed a point? I love Call of Duty but at the same time I feel like too much is going on and at some point I just wanna shoot some sh*t and be happy. Games are supposed to let you zone out and have fun and I feel as if this is hard sometimes when you make games with physics resembling real life. I want to take a turn down a street at 90 MPH without braking or hitting a wall.

PayPal Withdraws WikiLeaks Donation Service

Tripp-phpBB Re:Rather symbolic isn't it? (794 comments)

Why not, we're the people of America? So who does have the right to say whether all this is damning or not? And regardless of what actually get's leaked, I believe this is a good thing because maybe the government will realize they need to be more transparent about what they do.

Verizon LTE Can Use the Monthly Data Allotment In 32 Minutes

Tripp-phpBB Re:Any user-defined throttles? (273 comments)

Why wouldn't you think outside the box and realize people download different files of different sizes which can ultimately exceed your cap without you knowing. That's on top of just general web browsing and watching videos which uses bandwidth. But all I know is common sense so don't take my word for it.

Simple Virus For Teaching?

Tripp-phpBB Re:DON'T DO IT! You'll get fired (366 comments)

He asked for a simple virus the students can remove by hand, not how to create them. I think the point he's trying to make is using a computer safely and if you do get a virus, what to do and how to remove it. I suppose the reason he asked to compile it is so he can see the source code? Or maybe I'm just an insensitive clod!
