VP Biden Briefs US Governors On H-1B Visas, IT, and Coding

amiga3D Re:Biden is talking coding?? (94 comments)

Don't pick on Joe. His job is really just being there so no one tries to kill the President. As long as Joe is number two man no one would dare.

It's geek stuff. At least it's break from all the Global Warming flamefests.

I'm sorry for the semantics problem bud. Didn't mean to confuse you but somehow I'm sure you know what I meant. You were just waitiing for the chance to show off your brilliance. Your welcome.

Open-Source Blu-Ray Library Now Supports BD-J Java

amiga3D Re:"Compatible" (91 comments)

I do support the corps occasionally by going to the cinema. I love the new GTX screen at the theater down the road here. Movies on the big screen are still awesome to me. I bought an external Blue Ray burner for my Mini. I love renting BDs from Redbox and ripping them. I store them on hard drive and stream to the TV. Nice, and to think I grew up with a 19" black and white Zenith watching Captain Kirk travel the galaxy. Man the changes in the last 50 years.

Open-Source Blu-Ray Library Now Supports BD-J Java

amiga3D Re:this is great news! (91 comments)

I bought a blue ray player 4 years ago and one blue ray disk to play on it. I played it once. That's it. Over one hundred dollars pissed away. I did rip the disk to the hard drive so now I have a 1080p mkv file of "The Sound of Music" and it looks great playing from my WDTV live. I do use blue ray for file backup and occasionally burn a blue ray movie disk for friends that just can't leave physical media behind. Trust me though, blue ray support on Linux is dismal and it's only a little better on Mac. Skip it and go digital.

Experiment Shows People Exposed To East German Socialism Cheat More

amiga3D Re:let me correct that for you. (588 comments)

They've given up on ever getting as cheap as coal. The new plan is to outlaw coal so we have no choice but to pay out the ass for energy. Imagine what that will do for the economy.

If that was his point he failed miserably at expressing it.

There is nothing odd about it at all. When you have no defense you must attack.

The Almost Forgotten Story of the Amiga 2000

amiga3D Re:It was pretty cool in its day (185 comments)

The funny thing though is that the really shit hot coders banged the hell out of the hardware and got unbelievable performance. I had things running on my 1 megabyte A500 that amazed my PC owning friends. When I finally got an Amiga 3000 it really got interesting.

The Almost Forgotten Story of the Amiga 2000

amiga3D Re:A500+, A600, A1200 (185 comments)

The A1200 probably had more hardware options than anything else. I've seen a lot of those towerized with zorro backplanes and all kinds of goodies. It wasn't uncommon for people to spend a couple of thousand dollars on hardware add ons.

US Senator Blasts Microsoft's H-1B Push As It Lays 18,000 Off Workers

amiga3D Re:Free market economy (526 comments)

I agree. As a conservative I thought when President Obama was elected we'd at least get rid of the Patriot Act and some of the other Orwellian shit from the Bush administration but no! We still have the worst of President Bush's crap with all the bad crap of the Pelosi-Reed camp dumped on top. I have little hope for seeing anyone in the next batch of Republican hopefuls that's worth a shit either. There is no party of smaller government anymore.

US Senator Blasts Microsoft's H-1B Push As It Lays 18,000 Off Workers

amiga3D Re:Did he just notice that? (526 comments)

Rich isn't necessarily bad but this particular bunch isn't just bad they're low down dirty. The layoff aside there is no shortage of developers they just want to avoid paying decent money. That's it.

amiga3D Re:Free market economy (526 comments)

A result of what global free market economy? There is no such thing. That's a lie that's been told for so long that people evidently have started to believe it but it's about as real as the East Bunny and Tooth Fairy.

Preparing For Satellite Defense

Hell it was only what? A year ago you were 8. I don't understand why you want to repeat that.

Preparing For Satellite Defense

amiga3D Re:New potential battleground? (114 comments)

In the future it's all about space. He who owns Low Earth Orbit will own the planet. From satellites you can watch and attack at will. ICBM's will be useless so any delivery system will have to be cruise missile or strategic bombers. That's the problem with warfare, the game constantly changes.

Russia Prepares For Internet War Over Malaysian Jet

amiga3D Re:The US media used to lap up Ruskie Propaganda (503 comments)

The US media lapped up "Soviet" propaganda. The new Russian government sadly isn't Socialist so they don't feel any sympathy for them. I get the feeling NBC thinks the wrong guys won the cold war.

Russia Prepares For Internet War Over Malaysian Jet

amiga3D Re:The Kremlin are busted (503 comments)

It's no big conspiracy. This is what happens when you start handing out weapons to radical people. "If it flies it dies" makes a great motto for anti-aircraft missile batteries. That's what you get from the crazies operating this weaponry. Not a lot of skill needed to use it so they also don't have the skill to tell a military cargo aircraft from a civilian passenger liner even if they did give a shit. I'm sure Russia didn't want this but they handed out the weaponry to these idiots.
