Low Quality Alloy Cause of Shuttle Main Tank Issue

anti-human 1 Re:I guess I'm an optimist... (118 comments)

The problem with that is Congress has no goals in space. "Lets be better than Europe and China" isn't a goal for a space program. Congress likely isn't qualified to determine our progress in space. Instead, they know how to make requirements that benefit their districts.

Either way, its a huge amount of bureaucracy, which can likely be better served by companies in it for profit, wanting to develop space flight for long-term use.

Should Employees Buy Their Own Computers?

anti-human 1 Re:Good for everybody but the IT guy? (498 comments)

Good. You break it, it's your problem then.

Rules are there for a reason. Security policies are there for a reason. If you don't like it, go to another job where they "get" you. Then, you can wonder why their IT budget is ballooning and you can't get your bonus.

France Planning Non-Windows Tablet Tax?

anti-human 1 Re:Need a computer to do the copying (227 comments)

Also, don't lawmakers ever consult a real technical person when it comes to stuff like this?

What? No. You're getting this backwards. Lawmakers don't seek out people informed with opinions. People with opinions (and agendas) lobby lawmakers to get their views legislated.

This is the result of profit-driven enterprise gaining access to political power, and nothing else.

Al Franken Makes a Case For Net Neutrality

anti-human 1 Re:Very true (604 comments)

I think the traffic-shaping cat is already out of the bag. I think we need to BUILD the capacity we need. Federal funds, common carrier. If you want to peer, play by the (neutral) rules. I would like our tax dollars spent at home.

NO (!) content restrictions, no censorship on these lines. If something illegal is going on, that's a job for investigators.

Al Franken Makes a Case For Net Neutrality

anti-human 1 Re:Should be irrelevant who controls government (604 comments)

I'd say it is less about "tweaking" regulations, and more about the enforcement. That seems to be where partisan lines are drawn. Like all laws in the US, network neutrality will be interpreted and enforced differently, depending on who is in charge.

Comcast Accused of Congestion By Choice

anti-human 1 Re:The text in a readable format (434 comments)

At the very least, this proves the data is available and could be dug up in Discovery. I'll agree that it isn't enough info to base a lawsuit on, but it probably could open the door.

Net Pioneers Say Open Internet Should Be Separate

anti-human 1 Re:Fence Sitting (216 comments)

I take issue with your statement, probably because it is very broad. There are no inherent problems with fiber and IPv6.

I take issue with your second sentence as well, because we both know that the building of any infrastructure will be subsidized with tax dollars. This will happen regardless of neutrality or non-neutrality. I argue that upgrading is the way to go.

QOS and DPI are already in place. Our current net is not neutral. Leaving Internet Classic on IPv4 will just make it more deprecated.

I don't even want to have this discussion. Two nets is not an option, in my opinion. Hobbling the "good" internet with IPv4 isn't a good consideration for the two-net scenario, either.

Net Pioneers Say Open Internet Should Be Separate

anti-human 1 Re:Fence Sitting (216 comments)

Why? Why stay with ipv4 on internet Classic? So we can have NAT?

Or, is it just because you're used to it?

Apple To Discontinue Xserve

anti-human 1 Re:Hackintosh rack server? (304 comments)

I would say good luck getting OSX to drive your HP's SCSI array, or your Dell's quad-port NIC.

Compatibility lists are always your friend in the land of hackintosh. You might be able to do something with 3U or 4U generic cases. Support would likely go out the window too.

GPS Tracking Without a Warrant Declared Legal

anti-human 1 Re:Countermeasures (926 comments)

While your description is the best I've seen so far in this thread, you still only list dimensions for a two-dimensional object.

I commend you, AC, for being both the most informative, and yet almost entirely useless.

anti-human 1 (911677) writes "Via Wired:
A new optics system being developed brings a novel approach to threat detection.

The most far-reaching component of the binocs has nothing to do with the optics: it's Darpa's aspirations to integrate EEG electrodes that monitor the wearer's neural signals, cueing soldiers to recognize targets faster than the unaided brain could on its own. The idea is that EEG can spot "neural signatures" for target detection before the conscious mind becomes aware of a potential threat or target.[...] In other words, like Spiderman's "spider sense," a soldier could be alerted to danger that his or her brain had sensed, but not yet had time to process.
Seems even DARPA is trying to ride the hype wave these days, I guess."

anti-human 1 (911677) writes "As reported by Gamesindustry.biz, Sony has denied there were hardware problems at the Tokyo Game Show. These issues were speculated to have caused a 2.75% drop in stock price yesterday. From SCE's press release:
"As could be seen on the TGS floor by the tens of thousands of media and public attendees, both the hardware and software worked flawlessly."
Sony's response was in regard to claims that the PS3 units at TGS "operated erratically and had to be repeatedly reset.""
