Hackers Allege Mt. Gox Still Controls "Stolen" Bitcoins

Yew2 Re:This is why we can't have nice tihngs... (228 comments)

yea, bankers never again stopped giving loans to snatch up cheap real estate anymore....cmon all due respect, youll need to do a lot more to convince me bankers (and their counterparts in industry and government) have any less control over the proverbial faucet. Scarcity of access to our currency can be engineered in so many more ways in a debt backed system - you listed most of them - than ever before. I dont think its simply about the currency anymore. ftr, i never liked the idea of bitcoin either

Yea - wasnt it found that many/most pirates are among the most profitable consumers of the very material they share? I know for my part I already somehow paid for the bulk of anything i piratdid back in the day (harf) and still spend tons of money on IP.

Its called climate change because of the unpredictable events. Perhaps you would like to consult a scientist? I wont ridicule you like those that claimed it was a myth when Las Vegas got snow in the summer time, but trust me - they got it good.

CBS 60 Minutes: NSA Speaks Out On Snowden, Spying

Yew2 Re:Wonder why NSA didn't go to Fox network first ? (504 comments)

They probably figured it would be less 'obvious' if the so-called liberal media supported them instead of the 'obviously' biased Foxnooze.

CBS 60 Minutes: NSA Speaks Out On Snowden, Spying

Yew2 Big Bad Snowden (504 comments)

Test and answers to get hired? They are saying he didnt pass on his own (rather, hacked their systems before he got hired in order to get hired) or went from zero to evil the second he was given access and just went all grabby? Or are they saying he planned to open a "work for the nsa now, ask me how" website?

US Uncorks $16M For 17 Projects To Capture Wave Energy

Yew2 Re:Less than $1m each? (132 comments)

119m homes? Yea, Id throw every penny at it but maybe since its "research" we are paying salaries and office space (you know that chargeback/funny money stuff they do in companies?) and not much capex. wonder if the fossil fuel industry is gonna like it - or if this is a smear mission...

Isnt this one of those things that compels immediate (re)action? I thought when it came to things like public works, this was automatic. Need to issue some arrest warrants for everyone with the power to fix this doing nothing atm. wtf.

Ask Slashdot: Interviewing Your Boss?

Yew2 Trust (219 comments)

How much do you trust subordinates proficient with technologies you have limited understanding of? How often will you require in depth knowledge of technical changes before they are implemented and if you do not understand any aspect of such changes will you forbid them? Etc. etc....its possible many of us have had the techie vs. non-techie issues with bosses before and these hit home for me

Do Republicans Really Love Obamacare?

Yew2 Yew2 writes  |  about 6 months ago

Yew2 (1560829) writes "As one of the most read articles on foxnews.com in the last 24 hours, this opinion piece seems to be squarely in support of the ACA and opines this last ditch effort to defund it was critical to the GOP to prevent it from becoming a mainstay like Social Security and Medicare.

Republicans know what polls show — that most Americans don’t know what’s in ObamaCare, but when told what the law actually includes, a strong majority support the law. Once state health insurance exchanges take effect, and premiums for all Americans go down, Republicans know the law will only become more popular and harder to repeal.

Bradley Manning Audio Leaked

Yew2 Yew2 writes  |  about a year ago

Yew2 (1560829) writes "Despite onerous Army rules prohibiting recording of the Manning hearings at Ft. Meade, Maryland, the recently formed Freedom of the Press Foundation published anonymously sourced audio of Manning’s full plea allocution on Tuesday, allowing the world for the first time to hear the crisp voice of the 25-year-old Army private as he details his leaking of thousands of Army field reports and a quarter-million State Department diplomatic cables to WikiLeaks."

8000 Hoodie March Broadcast Live

Yew2 Yew2 writes  |  about 2 years ago

Yew2 writes "Significant turnout over shooting of Trayvon Martin, NYers are marching, hoodies and all, in protest of not just the killing itself but the stereotype that may have precipitated it. Regardless of the facts that have or may come out in this case, I grew up in the 80s and not only were they not called hoodies in my day (or mostly ever since) but in my opinion never really even fell into any stereotype with anything perceived as negative or hoodlum-esque, rather a convenient piece of clothing. The far right are connecting this clothing with mischief. Didnt we go through this with baggy pants, high tops and going back to dad's generation, pointy shoes??"

Ask Slashdot: How to escape the admin vs. engineer classifications

Yew2 Yew2 writes  |  more than 2 years ago

Yew2 (1560829) writes "When I entered the field of systems administration around the turn of the century, training in both network infrastructure AND enterprise hardware/software was all but necessary to be competitive. Like many in my generation I attained a CCNA as well as an MCSE and have always considered both sets of skills invaluable. Fast forward 13 years and 100+ clients and I am getting resume feedback like "seems more of a Cisco professional than MS" and "appears to have only a passing familiarity with many technologies" instead of seeing both sides of the skill set for what it is. I get that nowadays smaller companies are bringing infrastructure in-house with specialists and that larger companies have always segregated network "admins" from network "engineers" but for the sake of argument lets say that you have extensive skills in both arenas and are attempting a job opportunity focused on one or the other. Do you think the C word cancels out the M word on a resume or CV? How do you prove proficiency for the position while ensuring that other side of you is only seen as "in addition to" the relevant experience? Would a slashdotter even keep separate resumes with one skill set emphasized on each? Turn-of-the-century admins must know what I mean, have you experienced this? Having read a few hundred resumes myself my turnoffs include long lists of products and versions or resumes peppered with key-word matches to my requirements and the engineer vs. admin labels have made me wonder if other slashdotters have advice or success shedding them without such turnoffs. What do slashdotters think of engineers and sysadmins as being from different planets and how a "hybrid" is to communicate his skill set without either tailoring it to each job request — is that disingenuious or is that the answer — or expanding it to include every config and hotfix in his past? ...and FTR, I'm definitely more of a MS guy but don't hold that against me!"
