Retired SCOTUS Justice Wants To 'Fix' the Second Amendment

bongey Re:Militia, then vs now (1608 comments)

My 9mm quickly ended an attempted car-jacking/robbery, while I was driving back from school late at night. The nice individuals attempted to box me in at an intersection. I was in the right lane, they pulled into my lane so I couldn't move. The driver jumped out with some kind of hand gun, unfortunately for them they picked an combat infantry veteran. By the time he jumped out, I was already aimed center mass. The driver quickly jumped back into his car and drove off as fast as he could. No shots fired, no injuries. My ROE is always that the barrel has to be pointed at me.

  I don't carry everywhere. If I am in the "nice" part of town, the 9mm is locked, loaded and my finger is the safety.

Ask Slashdot: Hardware Accelerated Multi-Monitor Support In Linux?

bongey Go with NVIDIA (278 comments)

After weeks of trying to get AMD/Gigabyte motherboard and video card to drive 4 displays on linux, it just didn't work.
Tried 3 different distros, god knows how many xorg confs and driver combinations.
In the end I broke down and bought a NVIDIA GTX 760 for the following reasons.
*Drive 4 displays in Linux no problem with HW Acceleration.
*4 displays can be driven at 1920x1080.
*OpenCV has Cuda support , nothing for OpenCL yet.
*Openscenegraph has Cuda library, nothing for OpenCL yet.
*The Nvidia settings manager actually works.
*Xrandr is is working correctly.

I am happy now, it just worked. I want to tell NVIDIA **** you also about the linux/drivers /open source issue but there shit is just working and I will pay for working linux driver.

Ask Slashdot: How Do You Deal With Programmers Who Have Not Stayed Current?

bongey Re:Current? (509 comments)

You are either an IBM consultant or a moron. Let me see I have used pvcs,clearcase,sourcesafe,cvs,tfs,svn,mercurial,bazaar and git. Clearcase is by far the WORSE version control system in EXISTANCE,second only to pvcs. The version control model is completly broken, note UCM is just a hack on top base clearcase to compete with subversion. Clearcase also has the most subcommands and verbs out of any VCS out there, it makes command line for git look simple. You do know IBM has pretty much put it clearcase in legacy support mode, replaced by IBM RTC(subversion clone). Finally n your own words, it REQUIRES a PHD to set up a CLEARCASE, hilarious. Please do everyone a favor and shut up , you know nothing about version control and really just use clearcase as a crappy backup solution, not version control.

bongey Re:Very un-PC (719 comments)

"How remarkably topsy-turvy your universe is." These is going to be nothing but ad hominens but sometimes people just really need to be put in there place. I would have to bash my head against a wall over, and over and over and over and over and over and over, and you guessed some more head banging until I was practically brain dead to understand your point. For you logic is abosulty , without a doubt abosulte bullshit. I am raising the bullshit flag high and proud. Did you even read the news story? Or is reading ADN comprehension something that you struggle with . Finally did you even read the article , the IRS lawyer said that what the did was wrong. ( I smell lawsuits in the future. ) Finally I did find your baseball , stop by to pick it up.

2nd admendment doesn't say anything about the rights of militia, fucking read the text.
"A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed."
Notice "the right of the people" , not the right of the militia.
Since you cannot read here is video to explain it for you .http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1GNu7ldL1LM&feature=related

White House Finalizes 54.5 MPG Fuel Efficiency Standard

bongey Re:And thus, the used car market exploded (1184 comments)

The American public/market is the problem, not the car makers. Americans want their big , gas guzzling SUV/Trucks/Cars, then complain that is cost of filling up the 35 gallon tank cost more than $100 bucks. The Ford Fiesta Diesel that gets average of 62.5 MPG , isn't avaiable in the US. I have gone as far to see if I could get the engine and swap it out in a gas fiesta, cost too much to get it from England. http://www.examiner.com/article/why-no-62-5-mpg-ford-fiesta-diesel-the-u-s

FAA Denies Vulnerabilities In New Air Traffic Control System

FAA Denies Vulnerabilities In New Air Traffic Control System

bongey The FAA , another broken government organization. (141 comments)

The troubling part of many government organizations is it is more important to have a "certified and accredited", than to have system that works correctly and securely. The really scary part is there can be known bugs in FAA accredited system(operational flight programs, ground radar systems) and the manufactor will not release fix because that requires another accrediation process. Thought the point of the FAA was to make sure aviation is safe, not to make people fill out forms.

NHTSA wants Brake/Throttle override

bongey (974911) writes "The NHTSA wants vehicles to have override system if both the brake and throttle are depressed at the same time to improve safety. The rule would apply to all vehicles under 10,000 lbs.
There seems to be some issues in performance cars and scenarios where depressing the brake and throttle is desired. Also if person cannot figure to depress the brake when the throttle gets stuck should they really be driving?"
