Oops: Security Holes In Belkin Home Automation Gear

Yetihehe Re:I saw a documentary about this on TV last night (77 comments)

As an aside IMHO that article the other day asking about where is decent SciFi nowadays seemed to miss the point that for a good show character interactions and growth are what makes it good and that technology by itself is merely a prop.

In MY humble opinion, character interactions and growth makes a good space opera (SyFy), not SciFi.

Ask Slashdot: What's the Most Often-Run Piece of Code -- Ever?

Yetihehe Re:Obligatory (533 comments)

Then one day a programmer notices the dependence on the uninitialized value, which would clearly produce a severe failure if fed the correct inputs, and he thinks "surely this hasn't been running for thirty years deployed on hundreds of thousands of nodes, and never triggered a fatal anomaly" and yet there it is.

And then it breaks simultaneously in the whole world.

Anonymous Clashes With D.C. Police During Million Mask March

Yetihehe Re:Stay behind the line! (388 comments)

So strong, that you are willing to go to jail for a few hours, at the very least.

Nope, now you can be accused of terrorism and held for a month just as an example or slapped with a nice fine of several thousand dollars for costs of detainment.

Could Snowden Have Been Stopped In 2009?

Yetihehe Re:Other red flags (247 comments)

The point is, had he grown up in any other area in the country, this guy would be stocking shelves at Wal-Mart and complaining about "the system."

What can we say about NSA when such a guy can go in, take many secrets and publish them while successfully escaping wrath of The President?

Collapse of Quantum Wavefunction Captured In Slow Motion

Yetihehe Re:OT: Question about waveforms (242 comments)

Yes. You have this effect in double slit experiment, there are places where waves cancel out and you have dark place. The problem is that it's almost impossible to generate an inverse waveform from source other than the one which generated your photon. Typically it's done by splitting one waveform.

GMail Chat/GTalk Sending Chats To Wrong Recipients

Yetihehe Re:Ctrl-alt-del (109 comments)

On the other hand I post very rarely and sometimes I have mod points even when I don't post. Maybe somehow slashdot also sends mod points to wrong users?

The Legal Purgatory at the US Border: Detained, Searched, and Interrogated

Yetihehe Re:The real issue: U.S. government corruption. (555 comments)

I'm not an american, fifth amendment doesn't apply to me. Also terrorism trumps all amendments. Maybe it's the law, but what use has your lawyer when you can't see him when you're in gitmo and nobody want's to even admit that you are held there?

Beware the Internet

Yetihehe Re:Washington Post (314 comments)

Agreed. Since when did some old guys ignorant opinion become news for nerds, especially when such opinions flow almost 24/7 in all major newspaper opinion sections...

It's good to know your enemy. I WANT to know when someone wants to take my series of tubes away.

Will Donglegate Affect Your Decision To Attend PyCon?

Yetihehe Re:Donglegate? Really? (759 comments)

I'm so fucking glad she got fired. I hope she gets fired from life. People and their fake outrage can die in a fire, or a Walmart trampling.

Too many people overreacted on this one. You did too. Congratulations.

Game Site Wonders 'What Next?' When 50% of Users Block Ads

Yetihehe Re:ad networks (978 comments)

And no animated ads. I use adblock, but there are several sites which make unobtrusive relevant ads. I've unblocked them, and even sometimes I find something interesting enough to buy.

God isn't going away soon

Yetihehe Yetihehe writes  |  more than 5 years ago

Yetihehe (971185) writes "Looks like religions are here to stay for now. Recent article at New Scientists suggests that religion and superstitions are hardwired in brain. From article:

Much of that evidence comes from experiments carried out on children, who are seen as revealing a "default state" of the mind that persists, albeit in modified form, into adulthood. Children the world over have a strong natural receptivity to believing in gods because of the way their minds work, and this early developing receptivity continues to anchor our intuitive thinking throughout life.
So how does the brain conjure up gods? One of the key factors is the fact that our brains have separate cognitive systems for dealing with living things — things with minds, or at least volition — and inanimate objects.

Yetihehe (971185) writes "Researchers at Mayo Clinic used powerful microscopes to look inside the carpal tunnels of patients with carpal tunnel syndrome and suggest that violently or repeatedly moving adjacent fingers in different directions may lead to carpal tunnel syndrome. From article:
In all of the carpal tunnel syndrome patients, the researchers found, the connective tissues appeared to be damaged, causing bulky fibers and scar tissue. As might be expected if the damage were the result of injury, the worst damage occurs nearest to the tendon.
If these findings are confirmed, this may lead to new treatments for CTS"
