Google Rolling Out Gmail Redesign

_4rp4n3t Re:No! (303 comments)

Hear, hear. Google's 'designers' are assholes of the highest order. As you say - they will FORCE this shit on us tomorrow, precisely because MOST of us turn it off and don't want their crap - and hence the 'designers' will be out of a job, unless they FORCE this bullshit on everybody. Unbelievable.

Would you like me to call you a waambulance?

Aussie Government Proposes OpenDocument As the Standard Format

_4rp4n3t Re:AU Software Prices are Ridiculous (113 comments)

Software isn't the only thing Australians pay through the nose for - digital or physical books, music and movies, electronics and clothing all spring immediately to mind. Unfortunately seems to be a matter of charging what the market will bear.

Ask Slashdot: Programming / IT Jobs For Older, Retrained Workers?

_4rp4n3t Re:Hello grandpa! (215 comments)

The negative reaction is when people think they can just "pick it up" and probably in a few months start cashing some pay cheques.

To be fair, he has stated that he would like to gradually retrain with a view to landing an IT role in 4 years.

I assume you mean 'pew-pew', unless you are, for some reason, particularly relieved at the successful testing of this laser...

Golden Spike Working On Private Moon Flights

_4rp4n3t Re:Commercial exploitation of the Moon (121 comments)

The Earth and its economy would simply shut down if it wasn't for existing infrastructure in space and for existing applications of commercial spaceflight

Uh, I'd like to see you support that wild assertion with some pretty solid facts please!

Curiosity Spies Unidentified, Metallic Object On Mars

_4rp4n3t Re:Wow (396 comments)

Good catch on the typo - I did of course mean not specifically evolve. And I agree, those wasteful gluttons could well exhaust their natural resources early, thus prematurely ending an otherwise successful ecosystem....wait a minute!

Curiosity Spies Unidentified, Metallic Object On Mars

_4rp4n3t Re:Wow (396 comments)

That's only half the story though. Individual mutations that lead to more successful traits make that particular organism more likely to survive, procreate and pass on the successful trait, thus changing the species over time. So while they would specifically mutate to more efficiently eat the whale, those that mutated to be more efficient consumers ouwld survive better, and so - evolution.

Seattle Library Lets Man Watch Porn On Computers Despite Complaints

_4rp4n3t Re:I like their position (584 comments)

make him go some place in the library where others don't have to see it.

Julie Howe, the lady in question, asked the man to move, and then asked the librarian to intervene. If you read TFA, there is an image of the terminals in Seattle Public Library, and there are a lot of them. So - if she didn't want to be subjected to the porn this guy was watching, why didn't she just move?

You could also setup some sort of moving tables to alternate what craps get light on any particular day

Personally I don't care to let any of my craps see the light of day...
