Suggestions For a Coax-To-Ethernet Solution?

XSforMe Re:Related Questions (608 comments)

> the expensive part is probably paying someone to put the cable

Pulling cable can be tricky, specially if you don't have a guide to do the job, but since the old coaxes are already there, why not use them as guides? Of course this shouldn't be attempted by a humanities major, but this is Slashdot.

PlayStation 3 Hack Released Online

XSforMe Re:Does this open the floodgates? (164 comments)

I recognize my case might be fairly unique, but I was looking for an affordable DVP for my living room, and XBMC filled in the description nicely. The second day after I got my XBox I chipped it and loaded XBMC into it. Ironically enough, out of the 30 games I ended up buying for the XBox only two were pirates (and one of them sucked, so I basically threw it to the garbage can three days after I got it).

Had it not been for the XBox hackability and the development of XBMC, I would have never bought the box (which is nothing more than a PC, and an obsolete one at the time I got it).

CRIA Faces $60 Billion Lawsuit

XSforMe Worldwide practice (280 comments)

The big labels have been pulling this stunt world wide during years. Recently in Mexico, Police raided the major offices of Sony after it decided to tell Alejandro Fernandez (a Mexican folk country singer) they were going to publish some of his tunes with or without his permission. After the smoke had settled, the Police seiged over 6K pirated CDs from the same offices of those who can't keep their mouth shut when it comes to bashing pirates.

Artificial Heart Recipient Has No Pulse

XSforMe Re:Any systems depend on a pulse (465 comments)

How about vein or arteries stiffening? I can imagine that having a pulse might help these vessels keep certain elasticity and fight stiffening.

How Do You Deal With Telemarketers?

XSforMe Re:Polite (686 comments)

Next time you get a message from a spammer, remember that its the company that hires them that is to blame, not the spammers themselves. Save yourself and the spammer some time and grief, and just erase them.

Yep, it sounds perfectly logical to me.

XSforMe writes "After a six year long legal battle Warner Music was found guilty of plagiarism and piracy, according to a judge in Mexico. The disputed property lies in the rights of a song included in a music album produced by a popular mexican interpreter which sold over 3 million copies. The judge has ordered Warner to pay Mr. Lifshitz (claimant in the trail) 40% of the net income of said album. Warner has 15 days to either pony up the money or take the case to a higher court."
