Sony Leaks Reveal Hollywood Is Trying To Break DNS

WillyWanker And... (376 comments)

...what's to stop people from just typing in an IP address??? Oh yeah, nothing...

And if something like this comes to pass I'm sure we'll see an offshore shadow DNS server out of the reach of the MPAA that will gladly supply the needed DNS lookups.

The Downside to Low Gas Prices

WillyWanker Re:Or, I dunno... (554 comments)

Well that would be one additional source of revenue that wouldn't require increasing gas prices for everyone -- start putting tolls on your highways, bridges, and tunnels. The money raised would then go directly into a fund to maintain them.

The Downside to Low Gas Prices

And those states should get their asses in gear. It's certainly not new technology.

The Downside to Low Gas Prices

WillyWanker Re:Or, I dunno... (554 comments)

Many states have an EZ-Pass or similar system. I should think it would be quite easy to charge variable rates depending upon the time of day via these systems. It would also be another big incentive to get people using them.

Ask Slashdot: Is Non-USB Flash Direct From China Safe?

WillyWanker Here's what you do (178 comments)

Take some tinfoil, form a large hat, a medium hat, and small hat. Put the large one on your head, the medium one on your laptop, and the small one on your phone. After that, you should be just fine.

The Downside to Low Gas Prices

WillyWanker Or, I dunno... (554 comments)

Find another way of funding the HTF that doesn't rely upon bleeding more gas money from people.

People drive less and buy more fuel efficient vehicles because the price of gas is so fucking high. Lower the price and people will drive more because the amount they spend on gas every month won't be the same as their rent.

Basic Economics 101. Not surprising it goes right over their heads.

Aereo To SCOTUS: Shut Us Down and You Shut Down Cloud Storage

WillyWanker Re:Over the air (342 comments)

The problem is that if they don't complain about this and try to shut it down what's to stop cable companies from doing to same thing and stop paying billions a year in retransmission fees? The TV industry makes a shitload of money from cable TV providers. They certainly do not want to see that revenue stream dry up.

Aereo To SCOTUS: Shut Us Down and You Shut Down Cloud Storage

WillyWanker Re:Not sure how I feel about this one (342 comments)

Unlikely to happen, despite them saying it's something they might do. There are millions of people that use antennas to watch broadcast TV. Killing the OTA feeds would be cutting off their noses to spite their faces, especially if they think doing so is going to drive people to start paying for cable TV.
