Should police have cameras recording their work at all times?

amiga3D Re:"Accidentally" (379 comments)

You don't think police should have the tools to help locate and arrest criminals? Isn't that the entire point of having police? Or do you feel that locking up car thiefs and people who continue to drive after their license is pulled for their third dui is a bad thing? I'm not in favor of police brutality but frankly if you think that we should go back to the days of the wild west where everyone wore a six shooter and worked out their problems with lead then I think you're nuts.

It seems odd that the pigs are too irradiated to eat but seem to thrive and breed just fine.

Deputy Who Fatally Struck Cyclist While Answering Email Will Face No Charges

amiga3D Re:yet if we did it (385 comments)

This is not always true. We've had several local deputies here that were disciplined, suspended or fired for not obeying the law and in one case lying to investigators. Right up the road in the city of Warner Robins, Ga the police chief and one of his lieutenants were sent to prison for thinking they were above the law and could blackmail people. Too many people concentrate on these cases where justice failed and say that nothing "ever" happens but I know from personal experience that this is not so.

amiga3D Re:no price? (88 comments)

A lot of pi's don't use a monitor but are run headless. They do however need a charger and an SD card.

MIPS Tempts Hackers With Raspbery Pi-like Dev Board

amiga3D Re:no price? (88 comments)

I'm surprised no one has simply cloned the pi and sold it cheaper. I guess the pi's price is as low as it's possible to get on this hardware, Broadcom must be just about giving away the hardware. When you think about what they've accomplished at this price point it's truly impressive.

Russian Military Forces Have Now Invaded Ukraine

amiga3D Re: Send in the drones! (827 comments)

Sheep don't fight wolves. If Putin decides to grab Ukraine no one will do anything to stop him. We'll whine and bitch and Germany and France will piss themselves. The fact is though that he will win through intimidation. Once the Ukranians finally figure out that no one is going to help them they will have to buckle. This is a European problem though. It's time for Europe to handle things on their own continent. All that money wasted on NATO. Enough already.

Russian Military Forces Have Now Invaded Ukraine

amiga3D Re:Send in the drones! (827 comments)

What world are you living in? We don't have the stomach for that kind of war. It's one thing to go around blowing up towel heads and their goat pens but the Russians have real weapons. Oh I imagine if we pulled out all the stops and put everything into it we could win but the body bags will be stacked up high. I doubt we have the stomach for that kind of war just to save a Europe that doesn't have the balls to even declare real sanctions against Putin and company. I know I don't want to send my children to die over there for that shit.

Russian Military Forces Have Now Invaded Ukraine

amiga3D Re:Send in the drones! (827 comments)

They'd roll right to the English Channel. What's to stop them? NATO? The entire scenario back in the 70's was to use tactical nukes to stop the Russians. I doubt that'll happen today, not with what we've got running the country nowadays. It's time to quit pretending we're going to do anything because this drawing a line and making deadlines just makes our government look stupid and weak. If we aren't going to do shit we shouldn't threaten to do anything. I say we let Germany and France handle it. I want to watch that! I know the Poles are about to shit a brick because they know they're next.

amiga3D Re:Send in the drones! (827 comments)

It's Europe's problem. If they don't have a problem with Putin gobling up Eastern Europe then I don't either. I've had it with this world policeman shit. We've shed enough blood and pissed away enough trillions of dollars. Time to let someone else carry the load.

Why Women Have No Time For Wikipedia

amiga3D Re:Obvious Reason (569 comments)

With good reason. It's obvious by this that Wikipedia isn't doing enough to attract women to contribute. Such a small representation among women is shameful and certainly something must be done to address this glaring example of gender bias.

amiga3D Re:Impacts (530 comments)

Nah, the wars will come when resources get short and nations go to war to control what remains. When people get hungry and cold they become very dangerous.

I expect the population to shrink drastically when the wars start. A nuclear winter should clear up the global warming thing.

Seagate Ships First 8 Terabyte Hard Drive

amiga3D Re:Switched double speed half capacity, realistic? (315 comments)

I remember when Washington University in St. Louis installed a new RAID server back in the early 90's. It had a capacity of 1 Terabyte and only cost them $100,000. I remember thinking that was an amazing capacity. Now I've got 7 terabytes of external storage on my desk and it's almost completely full. If you build it, they will fill it.
