Pinch-to-Zoom and Rounded Rectangles: What the Jury Didn't Say

axlr8or Re:As if... (147 comments)

Put something in there about Obama or Romney. This is slashdot. If you look at my Karma it's terrible because I told people who believe in politics they are stupid. So, if you wan't someone to read an article on slashdot, make it political.

Romney Taps Wisconsin Congressman Paul Ryan As Running Mate

axlr8or Re:WTF is this doing on MY slashdot? (757 comments)

I think you'd be in a lot of trouble if they knew you were getting on a computer some how. Did you steal one of the psychiatrists tablets? It's really to bad to see someone who knows so much about computers but utterly fails at psychology. You know, the thing that every person is born with? And you so blindly follow your 'leaders' it really is a big box but couldn’t you just try a little harder to think out side of it? I know, its a lot to ask. After all it is just SO much easier to fit in. And that must be you taking the easy route.

Your right. I practice apathy, you are ignorant. Neither one gets anything done but at least I'm making that choice.

Respectfully, if it was your referral to my post, I'm sorry but anyone engating in politics has not even teh smallest perception of how they fit in. You are given your choices. Either of the choices you are given fall well within the parameters of their program. Their program is wrong. Therefore cooperating is wrong. Voting is useless the outcome is still in their favor. You, and your voting will never change anything. not that it matters, but where does it ever say anywhere in history that the voters got credit for something a leader did? NOWHERE. The leaders take the credit. It's all a facet of fundamentally incorrect thinking.

I get enough of this bullshit in the papers, TV, radio, diner, pamphlets, grandpa.... etc.. I come to /. to get away from stupid shit. Do you really believe this website is a peer on politics. Nope. Is it a peer in tech? Yep. Don't polarize this website with political prop.

It only matters because you people give it credit that it does not deserve. You would be better off to be apathetic than to support politics by engagement.

That's a nice try but I'll give you less intelligence than a chat bot if you can't get the context out of a conversation over a simple spelling mistake.

Wrong dill hole we can discuss evolution or creation or Muons and Hadrons but politics is sleezy humanism. The only importance it maintains in our society is what credit peole like YOU give it. There is nothing 'technical' about this story. timothy shouldn't be banned he's offered lots of good stories for us but someone should smack him thats for sure.

Wireless Car Charger Test Starts In London

axlr8or Re:Why? (118 comments)

screw that, 'Mid Drive' refueling! Where the tanker just pulls up to your vehicle as you hurtle down the road. I'll bet there's a felony behind that idea!

Wireless Car Charger Test Starts In London

axlr8or Re:What % of electricity is lost compare to a wire (118 comments)

Yeah, should be modded up, even if off topic. Same thing I said to a friend of mine. "But the Chevy Volt isn't all electric!" says he. I said, no car on the road today that I know of is all electric. What's the difference if the generator is sitting 5 feet from the electric batteries and motor or 500 miles. "Oh yeah."

Correcting the Record: the Government's Role In the Internet

Nah, its just that squeezing the VA would be like trying to sqeeze a turnip. No money in it. If there was, there would be gross mismanagement.

Ask Slashdot: Storing Items In a Sealed Chest For 25 Years?

axlr8or Re:Use a tiny PC (434 comments)

Just be sure to get one that doesn't have a cmos battery or one that has electrolytic capacitors (almost all do). That said, I've got a Toshiba laptop that has operated since its inception in the mid 80s. It still worlds.

Asking Slashdot: Converting an SUV Into an Hybrid Diesel-Electric?

axlr8or Re:Skip Diesel and make it a serial hybrid with UQ (543 comments)

Yes but that won't work either. Doe to geothermal use in the US, NG prices have dropped significantly. So much so, that mobile systems development HAS become interested in it. Soo.... What will happen when millions make the switch? Up goes the price.

Asking Slashdot: Converting an SUV Into an Hybrid Diesel-Electric?

axlr8or Re:Depending on your local laws, it probably won't (543 comments)

You forgot to mention management electronics. It is agaist federal law to impose new prodeedures in the engine management systems. You can't take them out, you can't change them, can't reprogram them, etc...

Prometheus/Alien movie showing up June 8. New trailer on Alien Prequel News.

axlr8or axlr8or writes  |  more than 2 years ago

axlr8or (889713) writes "The long awaited return of Ridley Scott to the world of SciFi comes to fruition on June 8. Long having finished production, a new trailer has arrived and you can watch it on the 'Alien Prequel News' homepage. You won't be disappointed. Although the movie can now be summed up from the trailer alone, I think there will be a lot of new things to see in the movie."
