cflannagan Re:Question (780 comments)

This means you're giving government way too much money before you get it back as a tax return. Money that you coud have put into interest-bearing accounts and make more money.

Supernova 2011b Gradually Fading

cflannagan Re:relativity alert! (122 comments)

The star exploded when dinosaurs were on this planet. If you were in the neighbor of the exploding star (right there when it happens) when it explodes - at the same times, 64 million light years away, we have dinosaurs on this planet. Relativity b.s. It still exploded a LONG time ago - 64 million years ago.

In Defense of the Classic Controller

cflannagan Re:Punch Out is a good example (251 comments)

Very few people use motion based controls after the first few levels? I'm in the middle of title defense series and am still using motion based controls, and don't see any issues with it (yes I'm familiar that motion recognition can and do suck for other games, but not this one for me at least). How did you determine that very few people were using it after the first few levels? Not doubting you, I just wanted to make sure you reached that conclusion through some polls or some scientific means.

Long-Term Personal Data Storage?

cflannagan BackBlaze? (669 comments)

I'd rather not pay yearly rent on a server or backup/storage solution.

Well, I guess I cannot recommend BackBlaze then. I pay only $5 per PC monthly to have every file backed up, at a remote server.

Very, very easy to set up. I installed it from their website, and that's it. Simplicity is key.
