The Nuts and Bolts of PlayStation 3D

bhxob This exact same thing... (154 comments)

...happened 10-15 years ago with CRT monitors, and Nvidia pushing shutter lenses and 3d capable technology, and then fell off the face of the planet from lack of genuine consumer interest.

What is different this time? Has the head gear changed? Not the home use version. Still the same stupid shutter lense technology that halves frame-rate and increases GPU workload.

For home use, the only thing that has changed is the display medium, from CRT to LCD. There really is nothing new to see here.

I dunno, the amenities sound nicer than your run of the mill U-Store-It.

Request for a better File Transfer Protocol

bhxob SFTP rather than FTPS (5 comments)

SFTP or SCP would work fine for this, coupled with your scripting language of choice, and known-host/public-key encryption.

Hosting Data-Transfer Quotas Are Fading Out

bhxob made obsolete by cloud computing? (135 comments)

Having never used 1&1, i can't speak to their service or resource levels, or more applicably to their resource usage levels.

However I can't say that I think that cloud computing will significantly displace shared hosting.

This says it better than I could I think.

Cloud computing is great in that it only charges users for the server power they use. That's why rapidly expanding companies with unpredictable IT needs love it. But the truth is, the average hosting customer's needs are very predictable.

A typical shared hosting user probably only utilizes 500 MB of space at most and under 3 GB of bandwidth a month. Hosting companies know what to expect from their users and most website traffic rarely fluctuates enough to take advantage of cloud computing features.

Sayegh is trying to solve a problem that doesn't exist. I think introducing the cloud to a shared hosting environment would simply add too much complexity and I don't see it being adopted en masse by hosts any time soon.

Is it Unlawful to Execute an Innocent Person?

bhxob Irrelevant? (1 comments)

"Does the Constitution forbid the execution of an innocent person who was convicted and sentenced to death after a trial that was free of constitutional error but that nonetheless led to an erroneous verdict?"

To my knowledge, Constitution of the Unites States does not even touch on the subject of executions of prisoners, only the rights to the due process of law (rights with aren't even fully incorporated against the states in many cases!). This proved more by the differing stance of various states in their own Constitutions and precedents allowing or disallowing executions. I think this is probably the wrong question.
