Sparse's Story Illustrates the Potholes Faced By Hardware Start-Ups

basecastula Re:That's not hardware (103 comments)

What about those who get off of work after the sun goes down? Should they not be allowed to ride to work? That's is exactly what I did today. I work from 4pm to 1am. It is nice to ride home when it's nice and cool.

NASA Money Crunch Means Trouble For Spitzer Space Telescope

basecastula Re:Of course (107 comments)

"space exploration just seems to drop right out of the equation, doesn't it?" That is the crux of the argument. At this point in time, large portions of the population just do not care about space exploration or research because there are more tangible topics that dominate their thinking.

Not a troll at all. He is just venting about the fact that the people of the world have a reason to root out corruption. These Fuck heads(Putin, et al...) are only hurting humanity by concentrating wealth.

Free (Gratis) Version of Windows Could Be a Reality Soon

basecastula Re:Kinda funny (392 comments)

A free version of windows would definitely help the nonprofit computer "repair" people out there. It sucks that in order for me to help people with reinstalls, one would have to use a paid copy of Windows or use a pirated/university iso. I mean , you can't just install linux as the ONLY OS for grandma and expect them to never call you back.
