Ask Slashdot: Should Developers Install Their Software Themselves?

asv108 Sure in DEV, but not QA, UAT, and PROD (288 comments)

I have no problem with developers installing in DEV, but they should not be pulling the trigger on any environment outside of development. The trick is to make sure that the process is consistent across all environments with different teams executing the release. I sell software that solves these problems, but its usually the process not the technology where the biggest problems reside.

Ubuntu Turns 7

asv108 Re:Nice distro but they messed up the desktop (244 comments)

Linux is about choices, you have root and are free to customize as you see fit or go to another distro. (there are plenty that support vanilla GNOME and KDE Desktops) The move Ubuntu is making here is smart. Its about ease of use and design.

Google Acquires Zagat

asv108 Re:Goodbye Yelp (114 comments)

The "extortion" claims are way overblown. Yelp generally has very accurate reviews.

Google Acquires Zagat

asv108 Re:Goodbye Yelp (114 comments)

Trust me, Yelp is going nowhere. Zagat is a nice legacy brand, and there was a time when their ratings were good and relevant, but that time has passed. The biggest strength of Yelp is the community. People who review on Yelp are not going to switch to Google unless there is some compelling reason. As we've seen with the failure of Google Plus, its very hard to build community from nothing.

Why Engineers Don't Like Twitter

asv108 Ironically (460 comments)

I found this post by following slashdot's Twitter feed. Twitter is completely misunderstood technology. I like to think of it as RSS + SMS. People have been dismissing Twitter for years, but yet it keeps on growing.

WordPress 3.0 Released

asv108 The upgrade process was painless (79 comments)

The automatic upgrade feature works really well. I painlessly upgraded from 2.x to 3.x through the admin interface. The only caveat is that the integrated update requires ftp/ftps. Bravo to the wordpress team for continually improving a great product.

The Sad History and (Possibly) Bright Future of TiVo

asv108 Tivo needs to move to iptv (490 comments)

The biggest problem with Tivo's current model is the fact that Tivo is entirely dependent on cable companies and satellite providers. I have a Tivo HD, its an awesome device, but I'm the only person I know who has one. When the cable company offers a crappy integrated "dvr," not many people are going to motivated to pay more, and go through more hassle (cable cards), just to have a Tivo. Tivo needs to cut out the middleman, and offer an iptv device. No cable cards, no contracts with satellite providers, just plug it in to your network.

Tour de France Champion Accused of Hacking

Apple Orders 10 Million Tablets?

The Noisy and Prolonged Death of Journalism

asv108 Internet killed the Video star (388 comments)

Its funny that Schmidt mentions that "Video didn't kill the radio star." Videos were a good promotion outlet for music, but the Internet effectively killed music videos on television.

Google news is an aggregation of news from various media outlet's websites. Its not going to kill newspapers, but Google news and Internet news in general is conditioning people to expect to get news for free.

In the past, newspapers were subsidized by advertising and subscribers. Unfortunately, Internet advertising is not nearly has effective as print. Sure, ads can be targeted to specific audiences, but they can be blocked, and many savvy Internet users are conditioned to ignore advertisements. Newspaper advertisements are unavoidable, and the randomly placed.

So if people expect to get news for free and the advertising is ineffective, tell me how the Internet and e-readers lead to a promising future for newspapers?

Fedora 12 Lets Users Install Signed Packages, Sans Root Privileges

asv108 Re:What does this solve? (502 comments)

Its not about Malware, its about security risks in general. If a user installs an FTP server, thats a huge security risk. A signature on the package does nothing to negate the risk.

Fedora 12 Lets Users Install Signed Packages, Sans Root Privileges

asv108 What does this solve? (502 comments)

I really don't understand the basis for this move. From a desktop usability perspective, having the gui password prompt for an elevated privilege such as a package install works fine. Its seemless in Linux and OSX. Not prompting for authentication for signed package installs is insanely insecure and borderline insane.

iPhone Straining AT&T Network

asv108 while its not a good exuse (551 comments)

It does validate some of my suspicions about the issues AT&T has been having. A lot of people seem to think that an Apple switch to Verizon would be some magic fix-all for the iphone, but I think any provider is going to have a lot of trouble meeting the usage demand of millions of iphone users.

Why Japan Hates the iPhone

asv108 Re:Makes me wonder (884 comments)

US taxpayers, most of which do not ride trains, do not want to pay for fancy trains they will never ride. Its a lot easier to spend trillions on public works projects in a totalitarian regime like China.

Red Hat Set To Surpass Sun In Market Capitalization

asv108 Re:Further evidence... (221 comments)

Its not just marketing, it being able to purchase products online at the actual price. You can't just login to sun.com and buy servers via a online portal with a corporate discount like Dell or HP. You have to talk with a rep to get the actual real price, not the phony MSRP price.

While the project will still continue, it appears that Novel is not committed to developing a viable open source MS Exchange alternative. The Hula project was announced in February 2005, with much fanfare."

asv108 asv108 writes  |  more than 9 years ago After setting up my own blog, my original intention was to cross post on Slashdot. Unfortunately, intentions and results are not always on target, so this will probably be my last /. journal entry. I will still be reading /. and /. journals but I'm going to stick with my blog for now. Its a shame /. didn't put more effort in to the journal feature, there was so much promise when it was first introduced.

ROTD: I hate Starbucks Dwellars

asv108 asv108 writes  |  more than 8 years ago Our office for the LionShare Project is right next to the local Starbucks. Here in State College, PA, there is only one Starbucks, compared to say Portland, where you can see one in any given direction, less than 2 blocks away.

I usually go in there about three times a week. Its a really small location, that was constructed from an old bagel shop. The coffee is decent, but there are a lot better places to grab coffee in State College, but this is the closest place to the office.

Every time, no matter what time of the day I happen to walk in there, 3/4 of the people sitting down are the same people. Why the hell would you want to sit in a fucking Starbucks all day? There many other coffee places that have just as good/better coffee and free Internet. I can't understand why anyone would go to Starbucks and pay for wifi in cramped location, rather than going to a larger local place, with free access, and better coffee. What the hell is wrong with people? Starbucks was trendy ten years ago, its now the coffee equivalent of Wal-Mart and McDonalds.

I picked up a dual 2ghz G5 and I was really impressed with the machine, OSX, and many of the applications that are available for OSX, but after nearly eight months of use I have decided to get rid of my only apple machine. Here is a quick list of the reasons why:

  • Non-portable hardware support is limited to outsourced local techs:

    Have a problem with your G5? If you need to replace something, you will have to find a local repair shop that is authorized to fix Apple computers. You can not send your $3000 computer back to Apple for repair. I can't just get a part too, even though I probably know more about the problem than the local tech. So I end up driving for an hour to drop off the machine, because the closer place has a 3 week wait. The 3 week wait requires you to drop off your machine, you can't just put your name down and drop it off when they are ready.

  • Apple Hardware is Prone to Breakage

    From the large sample of mac users I'm in contact with on a regular basis, its easy to see that Apple hardware has major reliability problems. The hardware looks great and has some great design features but in some cases reliability is sacrificed for marketability. Over-complex solutions are sometimes used for simple problems, the G5 fan control system is a great example.

  • No Upgrade Path

    Want to upgrade your G5 hardware? Good luck! Want to upgrade OSX? Pay Apple ~$100 every year.

  • Apple Warranties Suck

    Want to have service and support after a year? Well if you own a Mac, you will have to purchase an Applecare support plan. For example, if I bought a Powerbook and I wanted the same level of support that I get from IBM on my thinkpad at no charge, I will have to pay Apple $350.

  • A Culture of Shareware

    This is somewhat improving but a lot of apps that run on OSX and even some that come with OSX are crippled unless you pay more money. See a good app for OSX? Chances are you will have to pay for it, regardless of how insignifigant its functionality is, buying a Mac brought be back to the windows app development paradigm where developers made little closed sourced specialized apps and tried to milk them for as much money as possible.

One positive note, Apple stuff seems to hold its value. I should be able to get a little bit less than $1900-$2000 for this machine which I got for $2400. I will sell it, spend $1200 on much more powerful homebuilt system running gentoo, and pocket the rest.

Anyone need hosting?

asv108 asv108 writes  |  more than 9 years ago Recently, I purchased a dedicated gentoo server to host my own domain and to also host a few apres-work projects that have been brewing in my head lately. I've come to the conclusion that I have way too much system than i will probably need so I have decided to see if anyone would be interested in using my machine as a web host. Here is a list of the amenities that come with my offer:

  • Apache, ssl, php5, tomcat
  • IMAPS and spop e-mail
  • 2 GB storage
  • mysql
  • ssh
  • sftp
  • Anything else you need installed for no charge.

Assuming you don't use an insane amount of bandwidth, the cost for this hosting package will be $25/month. E-mail me or im me if you're interested.

RFC: Slashdot Blog Plugin?

asv108 asv108 writes  |  more than 9 years ago It seems that quite a few people are moving away from /. journals to more traditional blogs. Slashdot has been neglecting the journaling system for quite some time, lacking many of the basic features that are in most blogging packages. I've been flirting with the idea of moving to my own blog but the problem is that I want to notify my /. friends that I have a new journal entry available.

I've heard some people talk about creating a new site for slashdot journal users who want to have the same sense of community but with functionality that users come to expect in a blogging system. While I think this is novel idea, it seems be a lot of work and would require a huge paradigm shift to get people to move to a new site.

An alternative option, that I've been contemplating for quite some time is writing a plugin for one of the more popular blogging packages, like wordpress. What is there was a blog plugin that would automatically post the url and/or content to your slashdot journal? I have yet to confirm the technical feasibility of such a feature, but it seems like it would take care of a lot of problems for those seeking to have their own blog but not abandon the /. community.

ROTD: Take that Posed Picture off your Blog!

asv108 asv108 writes  |  more than 9 years ago I have to stop working for a quick second to post a quick rant. I opened up my e-mail client today to find Bruce Schneier's CRYPTO-GRAM in my inbox. CRYPTO-GRAM is a great little e-mail newsletter and now they are going to publish it in blog form also. Sounds like a reasonable idea, the blog has the same content but it also includes a picture of Schneier posing like he is thinking over the computer.

Why must people take themselves so freaking seriously that they need to have a picture on their blog looking like they are in deep thought? I'm going to measure the validity of your opinions based on content, not whether or not you look serious in a picture.

So who is to blame for this epidemic of posing for your blog picture? I like him a lot, but look no further that Lawrence Lessig. This picture looks like it should in male seeking male personal ad. My favorite is his old pic. I'm sure he is thinking deep thoughts while someone is sitting there with a camera.

Take This RFID and Shove it

asv108 asv108 writes  |  more than 9 years ago Well it looks like the FDA approved implanting RFID's in to people to serve as identifiers for medical records. I like the notion that a proprietary RFID chip should serve as the preferred unique identifier for everyone.

The privacy implications for this technology are huge. You might as well walk around with an access point stuck up your ass that broadcasts your SSN. Speaking of SSN's, why didn't the government just make everyone get ssn tattoo? There was a perfectly good explanation, its a question of privacy stupid. I love how people despise low-tech privacy invasions, but they have a "gee-wiz" attitude towards the latest technological privacy invader.

Bush Small Business Tax FUD

asv108 asv108 writes  |  more than 9 years ago In the last debate, President Bush talked about Kerry's plan to repeal the Bush tax cuts for the top 1%. Bush called this a small business tax cut and declared that it would force small businesses to freeze hiring or even lay off people. This is simply not true.

From what I understand, about half of the top 1% are small business owners, many of them have S corporations. An S corporation gives small business owners the advantages of a corporate charter while taxing the businesses' profits as personal income. The key word here is profits.

Anyone who took a basic accounting course will understand that hiring a new person is an expense. When a small business or any business decides to hire someone, that expense is accounted for before the federal, state, and local governments attempt to tax the company directly.

Increasing or Decreasing personal income tax will have no direct effect on small business hiring but it can have an affect on after tax personal spending. In the case of small business owners, they will simply purchase whatever items they need through the business to reduce their tax burden regardless of what the current rate may be.

Raising or lowering personal income tax on the top 1% will have no effect on small business hiring and very little effect on small business spending.

ROTD: I Despise Wired

asv108 asv108 writes  |  more than 9 years ago OK, I will even admit it. I am a wired subscriber. There is at least one interesting article in every edition of Wired magazine. The problem is, there are so many other articles that are either factually incorrect, biased, or just flat out wrong. The latest example is what amounts to a press release for the country of India? I'm not one of these anti-outsourcing nuts, but can anyone call that journalism?

The article outlines a few uninnovative projects and then tries to glue it together as a trend where India is now becoming a leader in technology innovations. I'm sorry, but those examples do not amount to shit.

The funniest link in the article is the "also by this reporter", which includes a bunch of other stories of similar quality. I guess as long as the cover design and format look good it doesn't matter what kind of second rate garbage actually passes for content in the magazine.
