Two Google Engineers Say Renewables Can't Cure Climate Change

burni2 Re:Is Nuclear going to be acknowledged? (629 comments)

Actually, the question is what you define as clean.

1.) energy usage
2.) Resource usage
3.) use of problematic chemicals

PV panels are simply spoken semiconductors, so the same processes apply like those for our precious CPUs and GPUs.

The most common base material is Silicon (Si) which is "refined" from SiOÂ (sand) which is highly energy intensive. resource usage is - given the amount of Si within the minable earth crust - within acceptable range. The elements used for doping are as those in our CPUs and GPUs toxic.

But the good thing is those processes are controlable with very little environmental impact (everything we do has an environmental impact, use a pill, take a piss, your pissing the content of the pill into nature)

Recycling is possible - known contents, but actually the need for having a waste handling concept for PV panels is missing.

But PV panels can be deponised, all dangerous material is enclosed.

Compared to nuclear where the waste can't be just deponised anywhere PV is relativly clean. Also in contrast to micro chips the energy you put into is regained within 1-2 yrs.

Tor Eyes Crowdfunding Campaign To Upgrade Its Hidden Services

burni2 Re:Nothing I'd like better... (106 comments)

I think you are on the best way to find out about the meaning of "freedom of choice" you exercised your right to "freedom of speech" because good men did many things.

But the best solution if you have nothing to say.

Just shut up and ignore it.

But you would make the headlines:

"Father of two daughters indicted for giving funding to U.S. government backed anti censor operation. - President Obama faces impeachment over funding of pro american value anti censor ship program."

He was soo pro american and all over the bill of rights .. that he overlooked the 10th amendment .. "If you ever take these words serious you are a fool."

Tor Project Mulls How Feds Took Down Hidden Websites

burni2 Re:Total Traffic Transparency (135 comments)

before somebody calls it: bullshit or so ..

- look at the map where most tor relays/entry guards are situated

- .. think about it that the network traffic consists basic traffic and a wandering component (it follows daylight) .. so I can steer when to do the correlation and
when it's the best time to look for an anomaly.

Tor Project Mulls How Feds Took Down Hidden Websites

burni2 Total Traffic Transparency (135 comments)

That's actually a major problem, all data is transported via government visible networks.

How would I do it ?
As a LEO I would try to get warrants for a full take loging of all entry guards/relays(unknowing facilitators) that were in between my request and the site and those that are under my jurisdiction. (now I know with which computers the tor-relay/entry guard communicates) I would obtain full take / warrants for those / and another round .. bingo

now I can do traffic confirmation attacks, download the same data-size again and again and again, and perhaps uploading same data of specfic size again and again and again.

Due to the full takes I will be able to correlate what path my data took, over all three levels. There will be misses, as not all traffic will go through the U.S. & UK
but at a certain point in time there will be enough ip-data, where I can identify a location and a person.

And then I need to do parallel construction (infiltration) as I now know who the person is I can generate a personality profile and figure out the best way to come in contact with the operator.

Berlin's Digital Exiles: Where Tech Activists Go To Escape the NSA

burni2 Re:Escape NSA in Berlin (231 comments)

The cold war was not about the soviet union, the su was russia and some puppet states anyway.

And Berlin today is the gate to the east, Poland, Belarus, Russia, etc.. so it really is interesting for spies today, and when you have many spies in one place you need to monitor them.

You can't escape an intelligence agency especially in Berlin!

Buying Goods To Make Nuclear Weapons On eBay, Alibaba, and Other Platforms

burni2 Stop the proliferation of stones to Iran ! (260 comments)


Stones used in stonings in Iran.

We old (in)continentler (european) stopped delivering sodiompenthatol to the U.S. because of its use in executions.

Stop delivering stones to Iran.

The funny thing about nuclear weapons is.

You need the fucking key ingredient!
Uran or Plutonium

And yes when you have that you can enrich it!
But when I remember correctly the Uranium content of the best ton of uranium ore was about 0,3%.

And the amount of centrifuges to increase the concentration is enormous.

Now you need to put that Caterpiller Truck also on the list.

No fucking idiot without a big organisation can do that.

We should track lathe and mill buyers first, because these are the tools weapons of person destruction are built off.

Denuvo DRM Challenges Game Crackers

burni2 Re:That's really bad for Fifa15 (187 comments)

Answer: Drawbacks!

Good crackz + Good Games -> Free Advertisement == high sales == very good marketing

Game with strong but volatile DRM -> No free Advertisement + angry customer == low sales == very bad marketing

Got it ?

Denuvo DRM Challenges Game Crackers

burni2 That's really bad for Fifa15 (187 comments)

Because now it's only a game for not the target audience intended (mass market)

- just for the some who bought it because they buy every Fifa game and win the World Championship in under two days, or now the difficulty level will be more hardcore (your team crashed)

- the crackers that have something very interesting to bang their heads on

The game misses marketing effect of a good working crack, that will drive the starting sales, well and what I read strike the good working.

So to conclude, warez and crackz are really a very good marketing strategy. And that game has nothing of it just the drawbacks. I would be interested in a sales graph showing sales of cracked games vs. resilient games. Very Hard DRM seems not to be a good investment, a medium hard cheap DRM is good, because totally without DRM would look like it's worth nothing.

Example for Crackz, Keyz, Warez == good marketing
If Windows 8.1 would be crackable the percentage of Windows7 would have decreased more. Answer yourself how Microsoft gained that WindowsXP dominance ? Well because the marketing guys at MS weren't such lunatics to kill the infamous "MSDN-Gold-Key" in over 7 years of it's existence! And don't tell me that they couldn't they just don't wanted to. But when Vista had adaption problems and win7 was on the verge, they kill the alternative. Fueling the legitimite used Software-License trading (which is legal in the EU).

Space Tourism Isn't Worth Dying For

burni2 Re:Some people like to differ on this topic! (594 comments)

Well actually it was the most persuasive left marixist argument - just in different wrapping -
because what's the difference between spending money to companies that employ(and pay NORMAL people) and taxing wealth to turn on stimulus programs ?

But the real argument was please don't let these people with this big number on their account gamble with it to just make more money. Money needs to circulate. But not to gain money from money.

The real answer is, money isn't worth - less than you think, would you feel the difference between 1 billion & 10 billion ? â_$

But you feel the difference between 100 â_$ and 1000 â_$
or 1000 â_$ and 10000 â_$

There is an upper level where making more money won't change your life dramatically, and there is a lower level were your money is disappropreate less worth than the factor between different levels.

This means the more money you have the more options for diverse investments you have. That's why the poor will stay poor and will suffer most during every financial crisis.

Space Tourism Isn't Worth Dying For

burni2 Some people like to differ on this topic! (594 comments)

And actually please let Richard play with his billions of dollars and live his dream because this stimulates economy

Other than he would make millisecond trades to catch another 100 millions during the flapping of a butterfly before driving - with all those microsecond crazy stock exchange markets and all FPGA & F# fueled robotbuyers sellers - the the world economy into ruin because nobody anymore knows whom it lend money, where it owed money and perhaps if you lend and owe money to others that you are realizing that you invented a new way of "self pleasuring".

That you lend money to your self and now you try to get interest rates for your own owed money.

Economy is an illusion, money needs to be spend, if too many people sit on too much money, the illusion could break.

(this means no more /. anymore)

So please support my plea.

Boo! The House Majority PAC Is Watching You

burni2 View from outside / Reverse Psychology ? (468 comments)

Sometimes from the outside we foreigners receive reports on the aggressive voter shaking, like getting phoned automatically.

Also the problem that some of those campaingers try to conceal or obfuscate their true origin to use a reverse psychological reaction to their advantage.

This "House Majority PAC" actually from my POV reeks as such a reverse thingy.

- page design & clumsy argumentation for example

If I would project myself into your place and would have been more likely to vote democratic than republican previous. This could make me angry and I would change to either "fuck off" from all voting or reverse my voting tendency.

It would been anoying to be bombarded with this load of crap, thank PASTA we don't have to.

But there is only one solution to this, because voting really is important, but when politicians and supporters don't know where politics turns out to be nothing more than a joke, and every vote turns into a dumb sheep shoven it's mostly the time to start an alternative that really is an alternative in being none.

All within the ruleset but ridiculing the current campaigners by beating them with their own ridiculous nonsense.

Example from germany:
In germany we have the party that's calling itself "the Party"/"Die Partei".

A satiristic nonsense party that ridicules other politicians and parties not by harrasing them, instead by just throwing some of their slogans back against them.

burni2 Re:Just because you can... (120 comments)

Perhaps you will think differently when you became disabled?

Btw. the logic way would be that you start only doing indoor cycling, because otherwise you take higher chances to become disabled.

But it's your own choice to end your life if this happens. Perhaps someone at Silk Road X sells red pills and you can pre-order some? And as a precaution you should make a "patients testamony" that you don't want life extending treatment.
