Lack of US Cybersecurity Across the Electric Grid

angel'o'sphere Re:I remember Y2K, do you? (64 comments)


if (xx00 > yy99)
      payOut100YearsOfSavings();

no payment

if ( 2000 > 1999)
      payOut100YearsOfPayment();

Wow, even after expanding the second example, it is still buggy.
What you think how many Y2K bugs I have fixed?
What day was 27th of december xx01? Monday, Sunday? Certainly 1901 was a different day than 2001. So ... does your elevator - which is shut down on sundays - work at 27th of december 2001, which is mistaken for 1901?
Claiming Y2K was FUD is biggest idiotic thing I have ever heard.

Elite Violinists Can't Distinguish Between a Stradivarius and a Modern Violin

angel'o'sphere Re:Modern audiophiles are no different. (469 comments)

No I did not.
I did not say anything about mp3s. And I told you that three or four times now.
I certainly did not say that "I can here the difference". I said "people can hear the difference if a tone is acompanied by an overtone or not" that is all.
In fact I never heared a 320kps mp3, mine are all something like 190, don't know it in fact.

UN: Renewables, Nuclear Must Triple To Save Climate

angel'o'sphere Re:Nuclear is obvious, an energy surplus is desire (420 comments)

Pffft ... do they use oil to create electric power?

Oh no, they likely are also the number 12 in the world car owners, or close to it ... and/or use oil for heating.

UN: Renewables, Nuclear Must Triple To Save Climate

angel'o'sphere Re:Nuclear is obvious, an energy surplus is desire (420 comments)

It does not matter how many nuclear plants China is building.
The parent claimed that overpopulation is the problem. He seem not to realize that 5% of the world population holds the rest (95%) hostage. That 5% are the USA.

UN: Renewables, Nuclear Must Triple To Save Climate

angel'o'sphere Re:The Real Solution (420 comments)

So linking to a newspaper article qualifies now as 'drawing a picture', I guess you are not good at drawing?
Well, continue to practice and you will improve!

UN: Renewables, Nuclear Must Triple To Save Climate

angel'o'sphere Re:The Real Solution (420 comments)

Considering that a third of the worlds CO2 exhaust comes from the USA and that 'country' only has about 5% of the world population I'm at your side: it will work great! Ah, well, I'm not that good at math. Hm, you wanted to release ebola in Africa only, great plan, I guess we can settle there later!

Apple's Spotty Record of Giving Back To the Tech Industry

angel'o'sphere Re:Why would I work for free to make Apple rich? (265 comments)

Ah, sounds cool. Perhaps I try OS X 10.9 in a VM. But the rumors about the iOS-fication, especially about the Mail.app horrify me.

Is Germany Raising a Generation of Illiterates?

angel'o'sphere Re:Can the writings be read? (425 comments)

That has nothing to do with sloppyness.
If you know how to teach writing, publish a book and harvest a noble price. (Strictly speaking, that should be spelled Nobel, as that was his name).
As far as I can tell, people complain about spelling errors. But no one is able to teach how to avoid them. I'm tired about that. If I had children, the first thing I would do is bribe a doctor in attesting that they are legasthenics. So they don't have to go through the 'writing hell terror' I suffered as a young pupil.
As far as I can tell: superior reading skills cause you to make more writting errors, but perhaps that is just me.

Apple's Spotty Record of Giving Back To the Tech Industry

angel'o'sphere Re:Why would I work for free to make Apple rich? (265 comments)

Yes it was hard to decipher, and I also don't know/understand in what regard it should be better. I'm still on OS X 10.6 :)

Ask Slashdot: Are You Apocalypse-Useful?

angel'o'sphere Re:I have a degree in computer science. (718 comments)

Well, I know that, but not the 'how too do it' :),
I meam: how to make any kind of strimg from a senew. You need about two yards for a bow, lets say one and a half. A senew is hardly as long as a foot.

Ask Slashdot: Are You Apocalypse-Useful?

angel'o'sphere Re:I have a degree in computer science. (718 comments)

How, or more precisely from what material would you make a bow string?
Obviously ripping appart some silk cloth would work, but I wonder if you have an approach not relying on materials of the former civilization.

Photo Web Site Offers a Wall of Shame For Image Thieves

angel'o'sphere Re:lol (126 comments)

Facepalm: They posted them online, which made them readily available for legitimate copying.
In the sense that your computer needs a copy to display it, but in the sense the story is about.

Photo Web Site Offers a Wall of Shame For Image Thieves

angel'o'sphere Re:Help Consumers? (126 comments)

Did you spell the embarrassed word three times differently for a purpose or did you only spell it two times differently?
Unfortunately my spelling correction does not trigger on your post ... and how the funk should I know what the correct spelling is when I only see english words in the internet? Half the time misspelled ...

Hm,
seems with Chrome the Journal works more or less fine.
With IE 8 (wich I'm forced to use at work) it does not work at all.

Hm, can't we have a kind of blackboard or message system in /.?

I liked to send ~ ScuttleMonkey a message but it seems I can't ... or to other "users" I can't neither ...

Still looking for an XUL Client Server App based on Firefox

Just modded in this discussion: http://ask.slashdot.org/article.pl?sid=04/12/28/2144249&tid=154/

Nice Links showed up:

http://www.hevanet.com/acorbin/xul/top.xul/ example site about XUL, running in Firebird.

http://www.mozilla.org/xpfe/xulref/ Readers say, this one is not that good, but outdated. Nevertheless I never found it via the mozilla home page or google (because I googlef for client/server and network XUL applications).

well, most posts are funny or just 'interesting' some how.

Your post was very analytic, and it was just like I had written it: http://developers.slashdot.org/comments.pl?sid=119135&cid=10057440

perfect, so I added you :D

Hm, that post was not only insightfulöl but also really sarcastic :D

Luckyly I could calm down my fingers and I did not comment on that articel. I agree with all posters who basicly found the Saloon article "bull shit" and bashed the gnome team accordingly.

Fans and Foes

angel'o'sphere angel'o'sphere writes  |  more than 11 years ago

Hm ...

anybody can shed some light on how friends and foes work.

E.g. if I click on my foe link ... are those people displayed there guys I consider as foe, or are that guys who have descided that they consider me as foe?

I think the pages displayed when you click on friend/foe/freak etc.. should have a headline and an explanaition :-/
