bob0the0mighty Re:Performance? (136 comments)

It's an eight core microcontroller and, based off the stats on wikipedia, each core seems to have similar performance to an ATmega2560.

Ask Slashdot: Ideas For a Geek Remodel?

bob0the0mighty Re:Unrealistic budget (372 comments)

As a general contractor, assuming you are doing things(paint, flooring, maybe light fixtures and blinds) to the entire 3000 sq ft, your budget that remains purely for tech is going to be approximately zero. Its doubtful that budget would even allow for much of a kitchen/bath update depending on what part of the country you are in.

Not if they do most of it themselves. I've redone the floors, moldings, painted, replaces lights and door hardware for less than 4000 in my 1000 sq ft condo. Once you start talking major appliances it gets much harder to save money, but cutting out labor saves a ton of money and you'll learn some useful skills.

South Korea Surrenders To Creationist Demands On Evolution Textbooks

bob0the0mighty Re:Obligatory question (640 comments)

Creationism is not a scientific theory, it's rote dogma. Intelligent Design is also not a scientific theory as it posits that things that are unlikely are less probable than a magic person creating from whole cloth. They belong with other religious dogma. Neither have a hypothesis, testing protocols, and a method for modifying hypothesis based on results.

bob0the0mighty Re:Does anyone else find the summary comprehensibl (200 comments)

In a "crinkled" search area you are more likely to find local min/max and have to plan for that but that isn't the same as chaos. I could be misunderstanding your meaning though.

Supreme Court Hears Violent Video Game Case Tomorrow

bob0the0mighty Re:I must be missing the point here (342 comments)

I didn't realize that the Evil Dead / Army of Darkness films were obscure. Am I overestimating their popularity as cult classics because of my love for them?

Toei Animation Thinks Mobiles Could Save Anime

bob0the0mighty Better Quality + Lower Price = Fix (sorta) (69 comments)

I think the way to achieve this is to pay the fan-subbers to use their translations. IMO normally they're better, lack censorship, and are already out there. I bet most would be ecstatic to be paid AND do what they love. And the price should be low, say $1 or $2 since the subs are out already. Some money is better than none.
