"Super Bananas" May Save Millions of Lives In Africa

chris200x9 Re:And hippies will protest it (396 comments)

Seriously do you know how expensive crap fast food is? I'll buy that poor people need to work more and don't have time to prepare food so they eat crap, but anyone that says good food is unaffordable compared to fast food is just plain wrong. I was at McDonald's and got food for 3 people one of which was a kid and the total was about 19 dollars. "The price of a pound of ground beef has hit $3.55 a pound, a record high even when adjusted for inflation, according to government readings for February. That's up 56% since 2010. The average for round steak is at $5.28, among the highest prices seen in the last 20 years" $3.55 + $4 for a big bag of chips + $2 for a 2 liter of pop = about $10 bucks for a hell of a lot more meat, more pop, and more sides (chips vs fries).

AMD and NVIDIA Trade Allegations, Denials Over Shady Tactics

chris200x9 Re:nVidia Being nVidia (69 comments)

Not even comparable, mantle is an alternative renderer. Mantle might be closed but it doesn't keep nVidia from looking at the games source.

Mathematical Proof That the Cosmos Could Have Formed Spontaneously From Nothing

chris200x9 Re:If you make this a proof of God... (612 comments)

I'm kinda actually freaked out by an afterlife in general. No matter how luxurious and great an afterlife is I can't help but think I'd want it to end sometime. Does anyone else think the thought of eternal life is a terrifying?

Is This the End of Splitscreen Multiplayer, Or the Start of Its Rebirth?

chris200x9 A good use for 3D? (126 comments)

I've always been a fan of his: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v... pretty much split screen as full screen through a passive 3D tv when you switch up the lenses in the glasses.

Report: Valve Anti-Cheat (VAC) Scans Your DNS History

chris200x9 Re:So (373 comments)

Not really, you only use games that use steam DRM. If your game is DRM free just back it up, delete steam, double click the binary and watch it launch. Steam itself is just a distribution service not a DRM. Sorry I might be a bit off topic but I'm just really annoyed at the "ZOMG steam is DRM!" crowd at the moment. Steam makes DRM available blame the publishers for using it not steam. No where is a DRM mandate.

Amazon: We Can Ship Items Before Customers Order

chris200x9 Re:'may dissuade customers from buying items from (243 comments)

Again, how is this modded 2?! You do get a real person who does have the power to do anything, I once mistakenly downloaded a game for the wrong platform, I asked for a refund and a blacklist of my key. They couldn't blacklist my key but I got a refund anyway. If I've ever gotten a defective product, which happened ONCE, they paid return shipping. Buy a kindle book and don't like it? Refund. Buy an audible book and don't like it? Refund. I honestly think amazon does have the best customer service out there today. Also could you please name even one large corporation out there where you get to talk with a charming, professional, customer service agent? Extra points if you can name one where you can talk to such a person right off the bat without having to jump through a bunch of computerized menu hoops. I very much doubt you can name one, except for y'know amazon.

Amazon: We Can Ship Items Before Customers Order

chris200x9 Re:'may dissuade customers from buying items from (243 comments)

How is this modded up to 2?! I know it's anecdotal but I've never had a broken package and I can always get someone on online chat if I need. Amazon has the best customer service I've ever experienced. It's not really too visible but you find help on the bottom of the page then click Problem With an Order? then contact us on the left side. From here you can send an email, get a call, or chat with customer service.

I'm in the process of making a coin! I named it HLC or HighlanderCoin, it's halves every 500000 and has an initial block value of 0.000001 HLC. Best part is, there can be only 1!

Switzerland Wants To Become the World's Data Vault

chris200x9 Backups (131 comments)

I was in the process of writing a post about how physical protection means nothing and how the data would would have to be online to be useful anyway when it hit me. Backups. IMO this doesn't make sense as a "keep people out of my data" thing as much as a "I can't lose my data no matter what" thing.

New giant 3D printer can build a house in 24 hours

chris200x9 chris200x9 writes  |  about 9 months ago

chris200x9 (2591231) writes "Scientists claim to have developed a revolutionary new giant 3D concrete printer that can build a 2,500-square-foot house in just 24 hours.
The 3D printer, developed by Professor Behrokh Khoshnevis from the University of Southern California, could be used to build a whole house, layer by layer, in a single day.

The giant robot replaces construction workers with a nozzle on a gantry, which squirts out concrete and can quickly build a home based on a computer pattern, MSN News reported."
