Pirate Bay Founder Gottfrid Warg Faces Danish Jail Time

cheekyboy Re:BT (73 comments)

First class is first to crush when the plane crashes.

The middle or back is most likely to survive better, there have been stats made on this, and the first class and business class is the crumple zone that absorbes most of the energy, SQUISH!

Pirate Bay Founder Gottfrid Warg Faces Danish Jail Time

cheekyboy Re:BT (73 comments)

Enjoy your high altitude flights were cosmic rays are greater and you might get cancer faster.

But tech IP is different to movie IP. You cannot claim tax losses on lost potential sales, otherwise I could claim that you didnt hire me, so in effect, Ive lost income of $5m, so the govt should refund me all tax ive paid in history.

I hope you pay your pilot well, not a cheapass wage.

But its a free market, if you charged 1 billion for your IP then you would get zero sales, so your price was fair to a company, and then evenly spread across 100000s of sales.

Oh and why would you risk everything, any real gambler always hides enough capital to restart or live well. You dont spend every cent you have left, or did you hide millions in assets in your parents name first to avoid paying your over worked unpaid workers.

Help ESR Stamp Out CVS and SVN In Our Lifetime

cheekyboy Re: I am not going to convert (244 comments)

The fact that lots people have issues with git is proof its not designed well. Even Linus said git is not designed to be easy and nice but hard like 1982 Solaris or vms.

Simple Hack Enables VR Mode For Oculus Rift In Alien: Isolation

cheekyboy 3D isnt hard (57 comments)

It just doing 2 renders from two angles.At half the res, but either side-by-side or top-2-top framed.

Most 3d tvs, and projectors take those inputs to be 3d.

And its probably a feature of most game-engines to do so.Like those ps3 games.

Motion inputs are probably just mapped from a Xbox-controller protocol.

DoJ: Law Enforcement Can Impersonate People On Facebook

cheekyboy Re: Copyright Infringment (191 comments)

As someone how outright hates (past communists) , their idealogy doesn't seam that bad, if a computer were to control society, but dumb stupid fuck nuts tend to gravitate toward communist leadership positions, much like capitalists management positions.

But damn those commies sometimes make utterly stupid retarded choices, like in Cuba, not letting people grow their own food, in their yards, or not letting people start their own restaraunts that use their own food - forcing them to use 'govt suppliers'. I mean why, are the commies so bored they try to micromanage every human aspect?

Yes its gone the reverse extremes here where you need industrial kitchens, licences etc... in the name of safety.

DoJ: Law Enforcement Can Impersonate People On Facebook

cheekyboy innocent until guilty (191 comments)

By definition, you can only prosecute innocent people, not criminals, as they are not guilty until the judgement says so.

So he must therefore have zero latitude in prosecuting innocents.

Test-Driving a $35 Firefox OS Smartphone

cheekyboy Use Windows XP embedded then.... (132 comments)

I remember running WinXPe, on a 600mhz amd, that only had 128meg ram, and did have a 9gig HD, but the OS only took up under 200meg.

Boots up with less than 61meg usage, better than any smart phone today.

All it needs is a full screen DX based simple interface based on rendered shapes, no textures.

World's Smallest 3G Module Will Connect Everything To the Internet

cheekyboy New rules... (118 comments)

As they are running out of mobile numbers and ids, they are recycling them quicker than ever, therefore all SIMS if NOT used for any outgoing calls/sms, will expire in 90 days, be deactivated, and your mobile # placed into a recycle mode.

Oh and they wont sms you a week before to warn you, its just done.

World's Smallest 3G Module Will Connect Everything To the Internet

cheekyboy Re:Cost (118 comments)

The ITU should know that the only reason for making any network is to charge $ for it and make a profit, its not a free network.

Therefore they should take billing into account, if you cap/limit any resource, you need a smart way to count it and adhere to it, and not go over it by 10000x fold.

Ask Slashdot: Have you experienced Fear Driven Development (FDD) ?

cheekyboy MDD - marketing driven development (1 comments)

What about MDD.

Marketing makes up shit that either is stupid or cannot be done, then says its easy, and because it promises it to future clients, then creates the framework for development features.

Problem is either these ideas or old or shit, or just cannot be done nicely without a well defined and tried and tested workflow.

Gradual evolution based development, like Firefox and Linux are the only ways to go. Know your features, code for them, then tell marketing to work of a working copy, not a pie in sky shit that makes presales look good.

UK's National Health Service Moves To NoSQL Running On an Open-Source Stack

cheekyboy Re:How quickly will they run back to Oracle? (198 comments)

SQL sucks.

Not only does it look ugly, it has ugly commands, that make GPU shaders look intuitive.

How many complex queries does a medical system need? You only deal with one patient at a time, you arent doing *ALL* records data mining for patterns.
