Samsung Delays Tizen Phone Launch

amiga3D Re:Yes it should ship! (108 comments)

They'd sold thousands of them. In a market counted by the millions that's very significant. Apple does that kind of crap. Take new technology that no one quite knows what to do with it, package it attractively, market it and sell the hell out of it. So yes, Apple did not invent the smartphone, just the idea that eveyone needed one.

Linus Torvalds: "GCC 4.9.0 Seems To Be Terminally Broken"

amiga3D Re:Oe noes! A compiler bug! (717 comments)

I actually understand that licensing problems drove Debian to remove the cdrtools package. Sadly though, despite your objections to cdrtools it's amazing that it works while wodim fails miserably. Is there some reason we can't have a package to burn optical disks in the Debian repos? I'm actually able to compile this shit from source so I can have a functioning system but the vast majority of users of Ubuntu and other distros think it's impossible to burn disks on Linux without piles of coasters. Just sayin'.

I think the invective is meant to motivate the developer but some people don't respond well to nastiness.

And what's your great creation oh Anonymous one? Despite your mindless drivel few doubt Linus Torvalds' ability. Some do disagree with his methods and attitude. Just because you lack the intelligence to understand his accomplishments doesn't diminish them.

What percentage of your media consumption is streamed?

amiga3D Re:Even my DVDs are streamed (152 comments)

I can tell the difference between a 30GB blu-ray rip and a 2GB compressed 1080p h264 file. The thing is though the 2GB compressed file is pretty good. More than just watchable actually even on my 50" HD screen. Most of the time I compress mine to about 10-14GB and those I have a hard time noticing any difference from the original. On my tablet I convert them to 720P because that looks as good as the screen can show anyway.

Linus Torvalds: "GCC 4.9.0 Seems To Be Terminally Broken"

amiga3D Re:Oe noes! A compiler bug! (717 comments)

I'm just wishing the Debian folks would do something about putting ffmpeg back in the repo. That shit about the ffmpeg that wasn't really ffmpeg caused a lot of trouble with breakage. I'm not even going to mention that buggy, smelly pile of shit called wodim that made burning optical media on linux go from easy to massive frustration. One silver lining though, I've learned to compile from source.

In France, Most Comments on Gaza Conflict Yanked From Mainstream News Sites

amiga3D Re:Or maybe you're not so good at math (504 comments)

In Syria it's Muslims killing Muslims and a lot of people see that as a good thing. It may piss you off but it's just a fact, there are a lot of people that don't mind if Muslims kill themselves off.

amiga3D Re:The proofs (504 comments)

Some Muslim leaders did protest. Not many but there were some voices of sanity. Unfortunately they are greatly outnumbered. What these guys don't get is that threatening people makes them stop listening to you. All people hear are the threats.

The NSA's New Partner In Spying: Saudi Arabia's Brutal State Police

amiga3D Re: Heck, we probably already fund them (125 comments)

Ultimately if your belief system calls on you to kill your neighbors you aren't going to be a very good neighbor. What makes me even more puzzled is how when a girl gets raped they stone HER for it. What the fuck is that about? Well, that's an entirely different subject anyway.

The NSA's New Partner In Spying: Saudi Arabia's Brutal State Police

amiga3D Re: Heck, we probably already fund them (125 comments)

If it wasn't Hamas it'd be some other group. It used to be the PLO years back. It'll always be someone. It's the way life is there. Their idea of peace is the Jews all dead and them in control. Then someone would be trying to kill them off. And so on.....

amiga3D Re:Heck, we probably already fund them (125 comments)

Every country in the world has blood on the land. The land of Palestine has been occupied by so many different groups through the years. Conquered and reconquered. It's currently the State of Israel and it is so recognized by the UN. You call it a colony if you like but the rest of us have moved on.

Well if they tried to fight the Israelis in a stand up fight they'd get eliminated in a few seconds. By using civilians as shields it lets them last a bit longer before getting wiped out with the added bonus that Western Media gets a lot of really good shots of the dead innocents. I'd say that means Israel left them only bad choices. I'm not sure if they're capable of choosing to just quit fucking with the Israelis. When you are brought up on hatred it's all you know. I see no solution to this shit, it's been going on my whole life and not getting any better. Well, Egypt did manage to extricate themselves from it but the shitheads killed Sadat for it.

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.
