Ubuntu Gets Container-Friendly "Snappy" Core

Truekaiser Re:I Don't Get It (149 comments)

Nope, it brings DLL hell to linux.
Sure you get the developers environment, but every program can and will depend on different versions of the same library.
This is what DLL hell was in windows. Program A needed version A of msvexample.dll while program B needs version D, version A is newer but overwriting it causes program B from working so they put in both. You now have two versions of the same library and just like windows you are still vulnerable to any problem in the library because program B needs version D.
Even windows is moving away from this system and ubuntu and LP are hell bent on turning linux into a shoddy version windows 9X.

Google, National Parks Partner To Let Girls Program White House Xmas Tree Lights

Truekaiser Re:Girls, girls, girls... (333 comments)

It's biology.
The studies were done with babies less than a year old as to rule out cultural influence.
It is also the fact that different hormones affect the human brain differently, a brain awash with testosterone will be structurally different than one awash in estrogen and progesterone.
Keep in mind just a change in the level of serotonin can radically change someone's behavior.

Google, National Parks Partner To Let Girls Program White House Xmas Tree Lights

Truekaiser Re:Girls, girls, girls... (333 comments)

This is the swedish paradox. The more equal the society the more likely that the sex's flock to 'traditional' roles.
The only difference seems to be in reaction to this, in sweden they decided to study it and found out, *gasp* human brains between the sexs are pretty much wired differently. Who would of thought of that in a species with sexual dimorphism. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/...

In the united states how ever, the lack of women in STEM jobs and the lack of men in Nursing is seen not as a result of hard wired biological differences. But some kind of 'oppression' like women bullying men who go into nursing, and some invisible boogeyman called the 'patriarchy' calling women 'bossy' and making them not want to be leaders and such.

Armies of Helper Robots Keep Amazon's Warehouses Running Smoothly

Truekaiser Re:Jobs & buying (110 comments)

Other people have. https://www.youtube.com/watch?...
It's just not a result many people want to hear.
As for minimum wage, in the long run it helps more than it hurts as it widens your customer base.

Game Theory Analysis Shows How Evolution Favors Cooperation's Collapse

Truekaiser Re:Academic Beclowining (213 comments)

This is mainly because people forget that the person who 'invented' game theory ended up being committed to an institution due to actually being a psychopath.
Which is the major downfall of the theory is that it assumes all players have the same mindset. When he conducted tests with people in his office and the general population he was dumbfounded as to why they chose the cooperative path even though it was less statistically successful than the selfish path. I.E they chose to share the loot rather than lie to their partner about depositing their share in the agreed upon location and taking it all.

Alva Noe: Don't Worry About the Singularity, We Can't Even Copy an Amoeba

Truekaiser technology as religion. (455 comments)

A person who believes in the singularity is someone who only barely grasps the exponential function, and doesn't understand that technological progress is linear.
It's technology as religion. believed by those, who like other religions aren't well educated. Or peddled by people who want to make a buck selling a utopian like future.

Longtime Debian Developer Tollef Fog Heen Resigns From Systemd Maintainer Team

Truekaiser Re:Don't like Systemd... fork it. (550 comments)

To be fair, as of right now it's only the dependencies of gnome force you to use systemD.
Come the next couple of versions though gnome's entire desktop environment will be dependent on systemD, why?
They are going to link it to systemD's handling of c-groups to do per user and per process sandboxing.

And then a month later, the law is changed after it's attached to something that 'must' pass. Then the lawsuits pour in.

FCC Confirms Delay of New Net Neutrality Rules Until 2015

Truekaiser Re:In other words. (127 comments)

And when they are reclassified as title 2?
Then congress and the senate will start, and then continue to try to pass legislation to remove that and possibly defund the FCC. To the point of shutting down the government like how they did with their attempt to repeal the ACA.

FCC Confirms Delay of New Net Neutrality Rules Until 2015

Truekaiser Re:In other words. (127 comments)

I was referencing to the very real possibility that while a law may not be passed to disband the fcc, they may zero it's budget which is effectively the same to prevent any sort of net neutrality. utility or otherwise.

Long-term Study Finds No Link Between Video Game Violence and Real Violence

Truekaiser Re: Sweet, can we stop talking about it now? (250 comments)

Tropes are not evil or negative.
Calling them as such is like saying grammar causes violence, or spelling teaches boys to rape.

Tropes are literary tools, just like spelling and grammar are. And just like how only certain combinations of letters in our alphabet make words.
Plot points can only combine in certain ways and keep the story readable. These are tropes and some tropes are more popular than others, damsel in distress is one of them because it's simple.

Human Clinical Trials to Begin on Drug That Reverses Diabetes in Animal Models

Truekaiser expect it to be. (1 comments)

Priced out of existence, 10's if not 100's of thousands per pill with no insurance coverage along with the high blood pressure version suddenly removed from market.
Oh but the diluted version that doesn't 'cure' it but lessens symptoms once developed will have full health coverage from the insurance companies and at most possibly be close to 100 dollars per pill without it.

Virgin Galactic SpaceShipTwo Crashes

Truekaiser Re:Not a good week... (445 comments)

And it is at this time the realities of what they are doing finally hit home.
Don't forget these are the same people who decried NASA on their obsession on safety calling it government over spending.

Don't mind me. I am just sitting here, amused, as i watch these people relearn the same lessons that NASA and the Soviet space program learned over 50 years ago because they believe that their 'free market' 'privately run' space program by some magic makes them immune to the same problems.

Topeka Kansas repeals domestic violence law.

Truekaiser Truekaiser writes  |  more than 3 years ago

Truekaiser (724672) writes "Facing budget cuts of 10%. By a vote of 7 to 3, the City Council repealed the local law that makes domestic violence a crime to reduce costs. this forces the cost of prosecuting the crime from the district attorney and the state it's self. In response to this and the budget cuts, District Attorney Chad Taylor has refused to prosecute all misdemeanors in Topeka."
