New York's Financial Regulator Subpoenas Bitcoin Companies

antant007 Re:So were you also one who bitched about Wall Str (259 comments)

This is a false equivalency. The US government is allowed to regulate it's own money - that is - the sovereign currency that it issues. Bitcoins aren't defined or issued by the US government, so it has as much right to regulate Bitcoins as it has to regulate the Euro.

I believe your argument is flawed here, the US Government does regulate banks trading in the Euro if they reside in the United States. The fact they they are conducting business in the US gives them the right to do so.

Valve's Big Picture Could Be a Linux Game Console

antant007 Re:Good news for Linux (272 comments)

You can thank Microsoft for that. Why would someone buy from a third party when you can buy games from the store built into the operating system? Valve is running scared because they see their biggest revenue stream drying up.

Why? Because the last thing like this (windows live games) was a complete pos.

Ask Slashdot: What Were You Taught About Computers In High School?

antant007 Hehehe (632 comments)

I'm graduating this year and so far I've taken ap comp sci (more or less Java with a touch on algorithms) and a computer and network technology course taught by a guy with a unix beard. I'm very lucky to go to the school I do, it's a public non-charter school but it's in a fairly affluent area and we're one of the top schools in my state.

Do We Need a Longer School Year?

antant007 Iama (729 comments)

I'm a high school senior and personally I think that summers are a very important thing. I don't have a phd or anything that would make people listen to my opinion, but I think the problem with our education system is that we need to learn more when we're younger.

A New Idea, For People Who Want To See More Banner Ads

antant007 Only if the ads are good. (167 comments)

A while back I took survey that was an ad on /., it disabled the ads. Occasionally I enable the ads just to see what is being advertised. So as long as I'm interested in whats being advertised and its not too obnoxious (i.e. a video banner ad that enlarges on rollover) I actually like ads.

Why do they think that they can order congress around, They shouldn't be able to just say that "we don't like this, change it" and have the law changed, laws are are _supposed_ to be made for all Americans not just monopolies.

US Students Suffering From Internet Addiction

antant007 tired of these stupid studies.... (307 comments)

How is this different from normally talking to people?. Ill bet that 90% of people at my school would have a nervous breakdown if they couldn't talk to people. This is simply a different way of talking and expressing yourself.
