Red Team, Blue Team: the Only Woman On the Team

Brian Re:Bring on the comments... (247 comments)

I don't know. She talks about it being sort of 'taboo', well guess what? I'm 30 now, and in highschool when I was learning this shit, it was still "stupid nerd bullshit" (much 'safer' today - and she is 21? or was when she started at this place) Guess what? I dug deep and followed my passion anyway, because fuck 'em if they can't take a joke. It's not like taking computer courses in highschool makes you some sort of fucking alpha, lol.

Google's Scanning of Gmail To Deliver Ads May Violate Federal Wiretap Laws

Brian Re:Oh for crying out loud (325 comments)

No, he didn't. You are either being deliberately misleading or you're not understanding. Statement 1: Email systems need to read email messages to make the system work Statement 2: Email systems also need to read the email to do ads. There's no statement 3 that links up "they need ads to make the system work"

The Glorious Return of the Twinkie

Brian Over $400 mega dollars (U.S.) (528 comments)

"Popular products such as Ho Hos, Ding Dongs and Cupcakes will return to shelves next month under the new ownership of private equity firms Apollo Global Management and C. Dean Metropoulous & Co., which picked up several Hostess names this spring for $410 million." Why mangle the quote? You took the rest of it word for word.

Making a Game Out Of The Web

Brian Brian writes  |  about a year and a half ago

Brian (2887359) writes "For their upcoming MMORPG, City State Entertainment's Technical Director Andrew Meggs(WAR, Skyrim) has decided to do something different with their UI layer — they are going to be using HTML and Javascript. He talks about "embracing the fact that in 2013, your ability to connect to something shouldn’t stop when you walk away from a desktop PC." At the bottom of the post he talks about the 'nitty gritty' aspects of it, as well as security. Can this be secured properly? How 'connected' to our MMORPGs do we need to be?"
