OpenSSL Cleanup: Hundreds of Commits In a Week

Zero__Kelvin Re:I would think (372 comments)

"No, terrible analogy."

You seem to think that because you are too stupid to understand it, that it is incorrect.

"Michael Jordan is a paid professional. You are not, but because you are free, thousands cheer for you, after all, you never miss a basket (because thousands cheer for you).

Blam, you miss a basket. Only fucking idiots would still be cheering for you."

You are too stupid to figure out that the people who write OSS are more often than not professionals. The fact that you think ametuers could write something as complex and ubiquitous as OpenSSL is prima facia evidence of your idiocy. Now off you go little cognitively challenged troll ...

OpenSSL Cleanup: Hundreds of Commits In a Week

Zero__Kelvin Re:I would think (372 comments)

"I'm simply pointing out, that a talking bullet of open source, is no longer valid. "

You are simply trolling. Period. Nobody is such a moron that they actually beleive that; not even you.

OpenSSL Cleanup: Hundreds of Commits In a Week

Zero__Kelvin Re:I would think (372 comments)

" It doesn't take much of a leap to understand open source it what it is, a free less than ideal solution that is NO competitor to closed source."

Well that certainly explains why you are so upset about it!

"Multiple eyes on code, security, these are things that are great about open source, except they aren't. This is a prime example of how bugs get through anyhow, major bugs. "

No, but your post is a prime example of some idiot trying to win an argument he can't possibly win by trying to reframe the discussion with lies. Nobody ever made the claim that FOSS is bug free, and you are a complete moron for trying to act is though they did.

I used to think that Michael Jordan is much better than me at basketball, but then he missed a basket, which according to you is proof I'm better than him!

Peoria Mayor Sends Police To Track Down Twitter Parodist

Zero__Kelvin Re:Why won't the vote this nut out? (168 comments)

I am talking about first instance causality. Clearly if the other people stood up to him and did their job it wouldn't have been a successful attempt, but even then you clearly admit that the story would be about the mayor and his actions, or more likely of course no story at all. The fact remains that he initiated the action. Yes others have culpability in the degree to which his actions succeeded, but it was his actions. He has the ultimate culpability in the matter. He is exactly as culpible as he would be if the Judge didn't grant the warrant. There is no difference from a "who's ultimately to blame?" standpoint..

Peoria Mayor Sends Police To Track Down Twitter Parodist

Zero__Kelvin Re:Why won't the vote this nut out? (168 comments)

He sought said warrant didn't he? Whom should we blame if not the idiot who sought the warrant. Yes it never should have been granted, but it probably was granted because he's the Mayor and he has that kind of power. So again, I ask you, whom should we blame if not the guy who abuses his power to seek a warrant in a case where no such warrant was ... well ... warranted.

Peoria Mayor Sends Police To Track Down Twitter Parodist

Zero__Kelvin Re:Isn't parody protected in the US? (168 comments)

Actually this is a classic case of the Streisand Effect and it seems like you simply don't know what it is. Many many more people now know about the account and have read it. Followers went up 400% as a result of his actions. I now know of a guy in Illinois who is clearly an idiotic douchebag. One whom I certainly never would have heard about if he hadn't made it an issue.

Bug Bounties Don't Help If Bugs Never Run Out

Zero__Kelvin Re:tldr (235 comments)

It has been pointed out hundreds of times already. The number of flaws in your analysis are astounding. Two that stick out are that there are an infinite number of bugs and that they all have the same weight and value. You literally concluded that if so and so said that they could find another bug in the same time frame that it was a fact. The bugs you are talking about would get caught by splint, so if you simply ran a decent code coverage tool on the code then his claim is suddenly bullshit. Your entire analysis is flawed. Do you really need me to show you the errors in your analysis. OK. Here they are.

Bug Bounties Don't Help If Bugs Never Run Out

Zero__Kelvin Re:tldr (235 comments)

"Which part of it doesn't make sense to you?"

Actually there are e few things:

  1. 1) You wrote a long, absurd and useless analysis piece and then actually decided to broadcast your drivel in the apperently mistaken belief that it is actually well written and has a point "I just don't get"
  2. 2) Slashdot actually published your drivel
  3. 3) You continue to defend it, despite an overwhelming number of people pointing out how incredibly stupid it actually is

All of those things baffle me

The analysis is absurd, and I'm pretty surprised that you would show your face at all. The fact that your appearance didn't involve an apology speaks volumes.

The Internet of Things and Humans

I was alive when most people had never even seen a computer. I can assure you that the downward spiral of common sense and critical thinking started well before the high technology movement.

Bug Bounties Don't Help If Bugs Never Run Out

Zero__Kelvin tldr (235 comments)

I did read far enough to realize that this person is an idiot. We need only look at the heartbleed bug. If a bounty was offered and resulted in a fix earlier the number of stolen keys would be less, but that is almost besides the point. Once closed they might find another bug, but the likelihood that it will leak private keys is extremely low. To use a car analogy, every car has problems. This is essentially like claiming that fixing the exploding gas tanks in a Pinto is of no use, because the car will still have other issues. Seriously?

Click Like? You May Have Given Up the Right To Sue

Zero__Kelvin Re:Possibly Worse Than That (216 comments)

"In short, every single point you made is precisely and exactly wrong."

You should learn what the words "precisely" and "exactly" mean. When you are hanging around with your fellow mentally retarded buddies at the law library throwing them around makes you sound intelligent, but here your use of them just amplifies your stupidity.

What have peoples experiences with Hosting Provider Siteground been?

Zero__Kelvin Zero__Kelvin writes  |  about 2 years ago

Zero__Kelvin (151819) writes "I recently took over the website design for a small church who would like to stream mp3 and possibly videos of their services. I also had to make numerous changes to the site. In the process I have encountered a few problems and issues, including making it very difficult to ssh into the server. Meanwhile ftp is available easily, encouraging the use of insecure file transfers. Ironically, they cited security as their excuse for not having basic tools like git and make available on their servers once I finally ssh'ed in successfully. They also added a useless and unneeded php script to my site without my permission in response to one of my tickets.

I have read numerous negative reviews on the net, but I am also aware that you can find negative reviews on fluffy bunnies if you try hard enough. I am particularly concerned about claims that they have stood in the way of people switching providers.

So I am asking:
  • What experiences have others had with siteground?
  • For those who moved successfully to another provider, how can I do so in the smoothest way possible (any success stories?)

Facebook social network is a notwork without IE

Zero__Kelvin Zero__Kelvin writes  |  more than 4 years ago

Zero__Kelvin (151819) writes "While somewhat begrudgingly allowing a friend to use my Linux box to access his facebook account, I discovered that people are experiencing trouble using facebook with non IE browsers, and this has been an issue since August of 2008. Perhaps not so coincidentally, Microsoft acquired a major stake in the social networking site in 2007. Users have reported problems with Firefox, with some claims that Adblock is to blame being debunked. I have tried it with Konqueror and found that the same difficulties exist there as well, and it appears that this has been an issue for a similiarly long time. If only we had some kind of open standard to which they could conform ..."

FOSS UML Tools

Zero__Kelvin Zero__Kelvin writes  |  more than 5 years ago

Zero__Kelvin (151819) writes "I need to use the Unified Modeling Language (UML) to capture and communicate a system design. I found a wikipedia entry that lists several FOSS tools that purport to allow me to perform the task (and there may well be others not listed there, of course.) Alas I don't have the time to try them all, or even a reasonable subset. I was wondering what FOSS UML tools the Slashdot crowd has used, which tools were worth looking into, and which ones people think should be avoided."

Zero__Kelvin (151819) writes "A couple of weeks ago I went to the On-Line Guitar Archive (OLGA) and there was a notice that the site was down due to takedown letters from the NMPA and the MPA. I anticipated trouble at the time, but decided to wait and see. Now at least one other guitar tablature site has fallen victim to their strong-arm tactics. The second site seems to get the issue completely, and it seems it is their ISP that is clueless. I think it is important that the Slashdot community be made aware of the *MPA's actions. I personally encourage everyone to contact the NMPA and/or MPA and help them understand what a bunch of morons their lawyers are, and help them get the hint that they are about to lose a whole ton-o-money. Oh yeah, and did I mention ... please boycott by not purchasing sheet music until they begin playing well with others again."
