Site of 1976 "Atomic Man" Accident To Be Cleaned

Zeromous Re:Faith in God (299 comments)

This is absolute bullshittery. Morality is rational, it is irrational. It is codified, it is not codified. Wow, you are the weakest minded person I've met on the Internet all day- perhaps all week. Grow a pair and post as yourself too AC, if you want to talk about what morality actually is.

morality
mralt,mô-/Submit
noun
principles concerning the distinction between right and wrong or good and bad behavior.

Zeromous Re:Faith in God (299 comments)

No. Morality is about making choices for yourself and not impacting others without choice negatively. It has nothing to do with me, or what I see as clear- but apparently you need someone to follow?

Zeromous Re:Faith in God (299 comments)

For the record I am VERY consistent in my application of morals here.

1) no one is hurt
2) someone is hurt
3) someone may be hurt, but that person is dead. family may be hurt, but if they are not, what is the big deal?

No you missed completely what guides my moral compass........

My moral compass is guided by accountability and impact to others outside of free will. Religious morals approach it from the ass end. They deny you free will (without irony) to serve unaccountable morals.

Zeromous Re:Faith in God (299 comments)

I think your definition of "morals" is skewed towards, my 'religious morals' versus any sort of accountable moral code which prevents people from impeding on others.

For instance, is it immoral for two men you don't know have sex? Is it also immoral for those one of those men to kill the other? Is it immoral for one of those men to marry his brother afterwards?

One of these things is morally ambiguous, one is immoral, and the other completely fucking irrelevant. But an unaccountable religious moral code would ban all three.

How Vacuum Tubes, New Technology Might Save Moore's Law

Zeromous Re:Transistors were not "discovered" (183 comments)

Actually transistors were discovered then refined after experimenting with older technology.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/T...

>From November 17, 1947 to December 23, 1947, John Bardeen and Walter Brattain at AT&T's Bell Labs in the United States, performed experiments and observed that when two gold point contacts were applied to a crystal of germanium, a signal was produced with the output power greater than the input.[8] Solid State Physics Group leader William Shockley saw the potential in this, and over the next few months worked to greatly expand the knowledge of semiconductors. The term transistor was coined by John R. Pierce as a portmanteau of the term "transfer resistor".[9][10]

Robert McMillen: What Everyone Gets Wrong In the Debate Over Net Neutrality

Zeromous Re:SciFi come to life (270 comments)

So we should just charge to borrow books from the library?

The issue here is corporations use publicly built infrastructure (library) to sell us (books) and then they stock it full of Random House rather than Penguin books because they own Random House and Penguin books, while more popular, eat Random Houses' profit margins. The library forces the issue by stocking mostly Random House books, and as such you may get only Random House opinions as opposed to Penguin books. Penguin books becomes less popular because it is not as available, Random House wins and owns your Library.

So yeah, the Internet is a Miracle and selling it to the highest bidder is "fucking it up".

Zeromous Re:Controversy? (215 comments)

This is nonsense. C-AAA are distributor codes. A is a low sales game and is cheaper sale by distributor to store or rental. AAA are high demand games which are sold to retail by distributors at a higher price (which means less markup, which implies they expect higher sales on volume).

Basically your entire post is bullshit.

Zeromous Re:they become aggresive... (50 comments)

That's not how it works. They are presented with an interface which asks about random connections:

Does JaneTheIgnorantSlut know about:

VMWare?
C/C++?
Object Oriented Programming?
Linux?

They click on all the things they consider you as "knowing" and there it is.

The Energy Saved By Ditching DVDs Could Power 200,000 Homes

Zeromous Re:Nice try cloud guys (339 comments)

>I also like the AC chiming in that he can have his support staff run it on a private cloud locally when we're talking about streaming a movie. That's cloud efficiency in action.

Stop being obtuse.

>How do you install a highly available cluster on a single machine ? And if you mean you can have part of a cloud on a single machine with a hybrid solution, you don't really mean a single machine at all. And probably a really dumb design.

Actually it is useful for software testing (and no a single machine would not be 'highly available') but it could simulate.

> Internet is a place tied together by DNS on the TCPIP (and other protocols).

GFY, this is not an untrue statement. Without name resolution, reliable packet transfer there is no Internet.

The cloud is NOT something new, it is tools can capabilities that have matured for commodity hardware and naturally follow matured virtualized environments.

You are right. These are not defining features, they are capabilities. But I defined what marketing is actually talking about when they refer to the cloud and I described the promise of it.
