Canada Revenue Agency To Tax BitCoin Transactions

YodasEvilTwin Re:LOL (297 comments)

Just like cash, they can't tell if you give your friend a few coins in return for something. But any company in the business of providing goods and services had better have their books in order. (Even drug dealers pay their taxes if they're smart -- too much attention on them otherwise.) They are going to tax volume sellers and cover the majority of transactions that way. Your piddling little trade doesn't factor into the grand scheme of things.

A Quarter of Sun-Like Stars Host Earth-Size Worlds

YodasEvilTwin Seems like useless info (105 comments)

As we all know, Mercury is not exactly hospitable to life. How many Earthlike planets are orbiting Sunlike stars in more Earth/Mars sized orbits?

Xbox Originator: "Stupid, Stupid Xbox!!"

YodasEvilTwin Re:Bill needed (245 comments)

Think for a minute about how much market share Internet Explorer has had in the past. I didn't say he was a clairvoyant and savant in every area of computing.

Xbox Originator: "Stupid, Stupid Xbox!!"

YodasEvilTwin Re:Bill needed (245 comments)

Everyone else long ago noticed how MS flatlined when Bill left, besides the fact that he was obviously a visionary and genius (and not half bad at business either). You may disagree with a ton of things he did, and rightly so on many of them, but you can't look at Microsoft's massive rise and Bill's obvious driving of said rise and go "Yeah, Bill leaving MS was the best thing that happened to them". It's patently ridiculous.

Is It Possible To Erase Yourself From the Internet?

YodasEvilTwin Re:The best kind of privacy (295 comments)

So you expect an extreme minority of do-gooders to somehow come into power and wealth and suppress the flawed majority?

Is It Possible To Erase Yourself From the Internet?

YodasEvilTwin Re:The best kind of privacy (295 comments)

Are you really sure that people are more capable of limiting their misdeeds than of adjusting to changing social norms? Have you studied history at all?

Is It Possible To Erase Yourself From the Internet?

YodasEvilTwin Re:The best kind of privacy (295 comments)

That's not about privacy, that's about vulnerability (literally being caught with your pants down). It's an evolved instinct. If you could shit anywhere at any time without any physical risk then the only reason for privacy would be fear of being singled out ("Dude! That's rank!").

Facebook has a fucktonne of information about me ... none of which matters. Oh god, someone might show me a relevant ad! Or find out that I said silly things to my friends on the internet! Nobody gives a shit.

Ask Slashdot: Best Alternative To the Canonical Computer Science Degree?

YodasEvilTwin Wrong (347 comments)

Technologies and tools are easy to pick up. You do not need to be taught them in a formal setting. What you do need is knowledge of core software engineering and computer science basics and principles so that you can create quality shit what whatever tools or technologies you end up using. Algorithms and data structures, software architecture, optimization, concurrency, etc. are generally much easier to learn and learn well in a formal setting and will set you up to be a good developer, not another interchangeable hack that never makes anything worthwhile.

Valve and JJ Abrams Collaborating On Half-Life, Portal Movies

YodasEvilTwin Re:A Portal movie?!?!? (208 comments)

...tables? You think it's about being strapped to a table? I certainly do recall several instances where characters were strapped to things but I hardly think that means nothing else happens. Half the episodes are one-off investigations that have a story and resolve by the end. The others built the suspense quite well IMO, you slowly realize more of what's going on and (unlike Lost, from what I hear) there is a solid and definite conclusion to the major arcs.

YodasEvilTwin Re:A Portal movie?!?!? (208 comments)

Why? I initially didn't like the pseudoscience but it is sci-fi after all, not a documentary. You may lack the skill known as "suspension of disbelief".
