Virtual Boss Keeps Workers On a Short Leash

bhlowe Awesome (664 comments)

Wow. As a software/hardware product.. that is freaking cool.... No, I wouldn't want to wear one.. But the analytic side of it is fascinating. You could also tie it in with facial recognition, so that if the employee removes the badge, that would be known and reported too. Your slacking off days are numbered!!

Ask Slashdot: Events Calendar Software For Local Community?

bhlowe Re:Integration with google calendars a must... (120 comments)

Emailing a URL and clicking it to add it to a calendar is kind of silly. If team has practices and games, that info should automatically be sync'd into a player's calendar.. and updated automatically as schedules are updated.

Ask Slashdot: Events Calendar Software For Local Community?

bhlowe Integration with google calendars a must... (120 comments)

I use multiple google calendars-- one for each kid, my spouse, and for some clubs I'm in. I use Calenmob on my iphone to see them all... but I would love it if there was more software that let you have a club (or class or whatever) add events to your calendar... Seems like a great idea that should have been solved.. but hoping someone here can recommend something.

Marc Andreessen On Why Bitcoin Matters (And A Critique)

bhlowe Re:Bitcoin inequality (332 comments)

Prohibition works well when there is a reasonable and legal alternative. I think it will be difficult to get this current iteration of BitCoin out of the black market and into the mainstream.

Marc Andreessen On Why Bitcoin Matters (And A Critique)

bhlowe Bitcoin inequality (332 comments)

With BitCoin, the wealth of the entire system has already been largely distributed to a handful of early adopters. For a global currency, BitCoin is hoarded by a large, mostly geek community. The government doesn't have any, which is why the government will do its best to take it down.. and its easy to "take it down" by auditing any company that advertises on the web that they accept bitcoin. (Accepting BitCoin for merchandise has pretty much meant that the transaction(s) will go unreported, including taxes.)

Short Notice: LogMeIn To Discontinue Free Access

bhlowe Timbuktu (408 comments)

Timbuktu is a good choice if you need something that works only on Windows NT, XP and Mac OS 6 and 7. Just kidding. I I use Team Viewer and I'm happy. Agree the pricing model makes me unlikely to confess to using it for any commercial purpose.

PC Shipments In 2013 See the Worst Yearly Decline In History

bhlowe Re:Current PCs are good enough. (564 comments)

I upgraded my old ~2007 iMac with a "new" 20" iMac from 2011, spent $600. The only reason for the upgrade (my primary machine is a PC) is that my dad's PPC iMac was approaching 10 years old and definitely needed updating.. But of course, vitalization and cloud servers are also reducing the need to buy new machines.

Ask Slashdot: What Are the Books Everyone Should Read?

bhlowe goodreads (796 comments)

I've been using the web site and iPhone app goodreads https://www.goodreads.com/. While not perfect, it is a nice way to keep track of what you've read, want to read, and see what others are reading. Better integration with Audible would be nice.

Antarctic Climate Research Expedition Trapped In Sea Ice

bhlowe Re:Al Gore says... (209 comments)

Al Gore's movie didn't mention "Climate change" once, instead only implies future warming, by showing the "hockey stick" graph, which implied exponential warming. Google Al Gore Hockey Stick for a reference. As far as the Summer Arctic Ice, you can google that too. You really need a citation to figure out that Global Warming did not happen as predicted by the quack who got a "D's and C's" in Natural History at Harvard?

He said Summer Ice. And its summer in the Antarctic. Where the ship got stuck. Apparently looking for global warming.

Antarctic Climate Research Expedition Trapped In Sea Ice

bhlowe Re:Al Gore says... (209 comments)

Pot shots? The whole world was supposed to warm exponentially and all the sea ice was supposed to have melted by now. Al Gore was horribly wrong. There hasn't been significant warming in a decade. The "deniers" have been largely correct. And yet, the climate change promoters are just saying the models need to be adjusted. Al Gore is a buffoon.

Boston Police Stop Scanning Registration Plates, For Now

bhlowe Why not just use it for for specific targets (110 comments)

Why release any data not associated with a wanted vehicle? On the other hand, it seems like it could do a great job finding wanted vehicles... Stolen cars, Amber Alerts, bail jumpers, and wanted felons.. Only when you use it for misdemeanor offenses does it seem to suggest a civil liberties problem. (Say you get pulled over.. turns out your tags was incorrectly reported stolen.. the issue is cleared up and your tags are cleared from the watch list.. probable cause and no real harm done... ) A little law and order targeting felons is something most people can support.

More Students Learn CS In 3 Days Than Past 100 Years

bhlowe It was a success (287 comments)

I can report that my wife's 7th and 8th grade science classes LOVED the day of code program. Many started out thinking it was impossible to do any coding.. and ended up making some great discoveries. All the kids wanted to stay in the class and "code" rather than go out an play and eat lunch. At least for my wife's school, it was a huge success and hopefully some of the kids will be drawn into a profession they love...

Anonymous Member Sentenced For Joining DDoS Attack For One Minute

bhlowe One minute? I call BS (562 comments)

Who downloads and installs DDoS software then only runs it for one minute? Something is fishy.

Was his (second) biggest mistake admitting that he downloaded and used the software, rather than deny and let them try to prove it wasn't a hacker who tapped into his home network?

Interesting corollary is to those who use bittorrent for illegal purposes.. at some point a lawyer and judge can come in and garnish years of your earned wages.

Ask Slashdot: Recommendations For Beautiful Network Cable Trays?

bhlowe Spray paint (250 comments)

Use standard cable trays.. but spray paint them some hip color that works with your designer... gold, silver, metallic blue, or whatever.. Lots of great colors to choose from. Will look great.. and be functional. And you won't spend a fortune. Guaranteed its the cheapest, most sensible solution. Don't forget to color coordinate with your CAT6.

Nuclear Process in Tiny 4.7kW Reactor

bhlowe bhlowe writes  |  more than 2 years ago

bhlowe (1803290) writes "You probably think that 4700 watts of clean, radiation-free power from a three cubic inch reactor sounds like yet another impossible hoax. But this was a third iteration demo, designed to satisfy skeptics of two previous demonstration at the prestigious University of Bologna. Attending the third demo were two Swedish scientists. One was chairman of the Swedish Skeptics Society and the other was chairman of the Energy Committee of the Swedish Royal Academy of Science. They were both allowed to freely examine the entire setup except for the contents of the tiny, 50cc reactor chamber."
