City of Toronto Files Court Injunction Against Uber

buckfeta2014 Dubious claims (169 comments)

Toronto is Canada's largest city, the fourth largest in North America, and home to a diverse population of about 2.8 million people.

4th largest? Somehow I doubt that.

New York is big, but I imagine that Las Vegas, San Francisco, Chicago, Detroit, and DC are bigger than Toronto.

Open Source Self-Healing Software For Virtual Machines

buckfeta2014 Prevention? (50 comments)

The software then prevents the invader from ever infecting the computer again.

Does this mean it's going to fix bad SSH/FTP configurations, or change insecure passwords? Didn't think so.

Longtime Debian Developer Tollef Fog Heen Resigns From Systemd Maintainer Team

buckfeta2014 "An anonymous reader writes" (550 comments)

He probably wrote the article himself, and thought that by posting it as AC, that we wouldn't see through the attention-whoring. Honestly, I don't care what some random linux dev does with himself. Nobody cared when I was a linux dev (or when I quit), so why should I care about him. It's not like he's Linus Torvalds or something. Honestly...

Ask Slashdot: Dealing With VoIP Fraud/Phishing Scams?

buckfeta2014 Caller ID spoofing (159 comments)

In the same fashion that ISPs should be using Source Path Verification, TelCos shouldn't be allowing their its users to change (or cause) their Caller ID to something that's not their phone number. Petition the government to force ISPs and TelCos to clean up their act.

Americans Rejoice At Lower Gas Prices

buckfeta2014 Won't last long... (334 comments)

... if Canada has taught me anything, it'll be back to where it was by Wednesday. Low gas prices are nothing more than a scam by the gas station retailers to get people to buy gas and use the mini-mart.

Blizzard Announces Overwatch, a First-Person Shooter

buckfeta2014 First franchise in 17 years? (183 comments)

Umm, didn't Blizzard just recently can a game they were working on? I can't remember the name off-hand, but I'm fairly sure this wasn't their first attempt at a new IP in the past 15+ years.

Last time I checked, Spyro YotD was cracked. All they had to do was bypass the modchip checks. I had a burned copy.

Smart Meters and New IoT Devices Cause Serious Concern

buckfeta2014 Re:in Soviet Russia, TV watches you! (168 comments)

Doesn't help that the coax you use to watch tv can also be used for data. Ethernet isn't necessary for these things to work. Think about it.

Facebook To DEA: Stop Using Phony Profiles To Nab Criminals

buckfeta2014 Re:Government Dictionary (239 comments)

Easy to cure, when making new friends just ask: Are you a cop?

The police (or feds) don't have to answer that truthfully.
