Court Rules Dungeons and Dragons Threatens Prison Security

countSudoku() Re:In other news... (353 comments)

+1 magic burning shiv of yard enlightenment

Personally, I would ban D&D for the obviousness of using 12 and 20 sided die in gambling, and that it could also lead to the purchasing of Magic The Gathering card games. Or worse; Pokémon!

Sir, subscribe me to your gang's newsletter, post haste!!1! Personally, I think they're just lurking in protest because I found them out to be date rapists.

3D Cinema Doesn't Work and Never Will

countSudoku() Re:I'm sure will be an surgical procedure ... (436 comments)

Imagine, if you will, a world full of people only able to view paid-for media. DRM for your brain. What a wonderful world that would be.

RIAA Threatens ICANN Over Music-Themed gTLD Standards

countSudoku() Re:God damn it RIAA (174 comments)

Let the babies have their bottle. No one is going to visit any of those lame .music sites. The more they tighten their grip, the more music will slip through their (fat) fingers.

Experiment Shows Not Washing Jeans for 15 Months is Disgusting But Safe

countSudoku() Re:Scientific Method (258 comments)

This is a job for the Myth Busters! We need a jean control group and 36 pairs of sterilized Levi 501s, STAT!

I only wear mine at work, sitting in a clean chair (more or less), and swap them out every other day for a two week period. Unless food or dirt stains appear, then they get washed again. 15 months of daily wearing without a research grant? That's just nasty.

Sony Planning Serial Keys For PS3 Games?

countSudoku() Re:And ...... (283 comments)

Damn good points. Also, think of this; Sony is spending millions of dollars on securing their system, rather than improving the gaming experience on it. They are trying to build a wall around a garden that is old, uninteresting, and now outgrowing the gardener's tiny constraints. Fuck 'em. Freedom of hardware is for the consumer and Sony would only like to piss on that very freedom. You buy the hardware, but Sony/Apple tells you what you can and can't do with it? That's not consumer friendly, that's being a Software Nazi. I call shenanigans!!1!

Sony Planning Serial Keys For PS3 Games?

countSudoku() Re:Rentals? (283 comments)

Bullocks! He is a hacker hero. Period. Sony is not out to make things easier for consumers, and good people like George undo the shitheadednessness of assholes like Sony. The more you accept draconian DRM, as well as pure root kit nonsense, that Sony forces you to swallow, the more they take your freedom to do with your hardware whatever you want. I no longer buy Sony or Apple products because of bullshit like this. Also, do NOT subscribe me to your newsletter as you are consumer unfriendly, a possible DRM sympathizer, and as AC put it a "noncompoop."

Facebook Images To Get Expiration Date

Facebook Images To Get Expiration Date

countSudoku() Re:crap (306 comments)

HEY, that research grant money is for actual research, not for taking pictures of your friend smoking a bong with their anus and trying to hide it later. Thorough research takes lots of time, even though this could have been implemented in a week or so. At that pace the grant money would dry up. Like with IT budgets; you HAVE to spend every cent, and spending less means you get less money the next cycle.

"Farming" Amoebas Discovered

countSudoku() Re:Rice university (49 comments)

I think it's weird that they used Farmvile as a reference. Single brain-celled organisms have been playing Farmvile for over a year now, with no effect on anything. Other than wasting time, and posting updates to the uninterested. Try Harvest Moon instead, and keep it to yourselves. Rice is yummy though.

Cybercriminals Shifting Focus To Non-Windows OSes

countSudoku() Re:Thank God.... (265 comments)

Thanks, Ballmer! I'm going to run down to the computing store and purchase a safe, closed source, expensive, fear based product right this fucking minute... wait, I'm going to finish my coconut juice first, oh then I have to fiddle with some linuxy bits here in Solaris land. Oh crap, I forgot I need to get a van and move some other junk tonight. Oh, then I need to get some medication for my royal wedding fever... Perhaps next week, FOR SURE!!1!

DSL Installation Fail

countSudoku() Re:But then what kind of asshole (371 comments)

YEAH!!1! Those fuckers probably want a phone line, cable TV, gas, electricity and mail service too! Why do people move in the winter? Shit, they're lucky to get DSL in the first place! Why can't people just stay where they are for the rest of their lives? This is just ridiculous. If the Tea Party were in power, this would be done RIGHT the first time!

Canadian Firm Plans 78-Satellite Net Service

countSudoku() Re:avoid more orbital clutter (143 comments)

Unless you consider the massive waste of these multimillion dollar devices being turned into dust. Go for it though, I'm sure the base cost will be so low for the few consumers on the outer edges of CA will be able to afford this wonderful service while the carrier absorbs the cost of launch, lunch, and reentry. Makes good sense, and should be up and running SkyNet in no time! Damn the jitters, just drink more to cope!!1!

Comcast-NBC Merger Approved By FCC

countSudoku() Re:For the love of Pete ppl... (268 comments)

It's both, you pinheads! When are you douchebags going to wise up to the fact that the Democrats AND Republicans are both full of shit, corrupt entities? The right vs. left "fight" is only a diversion to keep you from noticing that the corporations continue to bribe, I mean, lobby their point home with tons of cash for anyone willing to vote their way? You think your vote does anything useful? You're fooling yourself. You think the Tea Party is going to be any different? Good luck, citizens. The corporations call all the shots in this "democracy." Nothing has changed, only the leanings to garner your waste of a vote. Whoever controls the house and senate are meaningless, because they vote the way the corporations tell them to vote. Period.

Sony Must Show It Has Jurisdiction To Sue PS3 Hacker

The Biggest Hoaxes In Wikipedia's First Decade

countSudoku() Re:Is there a Wikipedia page for this? (219 comments)

It's been done already, though I rarely check it: http://uncyclopedia.org/ . There's probably others as well.

I still like snopes for urban legends, but other than the occasional hoax, vandalism, and interested party injected misinformation. The wikipedia is where I like to pull info from for my own use, and it does a great job for that. Of course it should still be disallowed for true academic and scientific uses, based on the aforementioned issues.
