cameloid Re:This is why genital recognition is needed. (116 comments)

This is a most excellent idea. However, a method may be developed to circumcise this process by implementing "bulge recognition" software.

I got a Slayer one for 1000JPY from Tower Records in Akihabara once. Once.

Australian Intelligence HQ Blueprints Hacked

cameloid Re:how long will this behavior be tolerated... (180 comments)

This is just normal spy stuff. The real problem is that the people being spied upon are obviously incompetent with regards to their anti-spying countermeasures.

Seriously, who puts their top secret stuff on the Internet anyway?

Of course, how do we know that they got the real plans? They may be saying this to make us *think* that they got the real plans, when in fact the real plans are elsewhere, or something. Anyway, the ability to hack people's servers is insignificant next to the power of the Force.

Ethernet Turns 40

cameloid Re:good Ole Days (159 comments)

Smoke signals?! You kids and your communicating-instantly-over-long-distances, in my day we carved our messages into stone tablets, and some poor bastard had to physically carry them (sometimes with the help of a surly camel) to their destination. A shattered tablet, I mean dropped packet, meant that the stonewright had to start chiseling all over again!

Paul's Call To Abolish the TSA, One Year Later

cameloid Dichotomy (353 comments)

It always amuses me when traveling to the US on business to see the difference between what they display on the nice "welcome" videos in the immigration processing queue, and what the attitude of the uniformed officers are actually like. It's like on the one hand, the marketing people would very much like people to visit the US and spend money, but on the other hand the people that you first meet resent your presence.

Linux Fatware: Distros That Need To Slim Down

cameloid Re:Really? (299 comments)

Heh. After some manly wrestling with the exact VM problem described, I eventually found those nice, small Debian server OSes. But then my company said, no, no you simply *must* use our approved version of Red Hat (tuned for a desktop, with all that stupid GUI stuff and desktop backgrounds). Now my VMs are all outrageously outsized again.

All I want is something that has enough to get the system into a usable console-only state, and devtools so I can install or compile the app-specific bits and pieces. Screen would be nice too, this stupid RH thing didn't even have that.
