Data From Windows 10 Feedback Tool Exposes Problem Areas

cozzbp Few Complaints (138 comments)

So far it has been great, with only a few issues. Can't seem to zoom with the mouse wheel in photoshop for some strange reason anymore, and the two forced icons on the taskbar would be nice to be able to move/remove.

Blizzard Has Canceled Titan, Its Next-gen MMO

cozzbp The luxury of money (155 comments)

They are sitting on piles of money, and I'd argue that their reputation for releasing great games is more important than a few million.

Electrical Power From Humans

The great thing about that game, is that more than any other Sci-Fi scenario, that is the one I image humanity actually drifting towards.

US House 'Creator' of TSA Wants To Kill It

cozzbp Re:"privitize" (681 comments)

Seriously. Instead of joining the "Tea Party" just tell the Republican party to go fuck themselves and register Libertarian.

More Schools Go To 4-Day Week To Cut Costs

cozzbp Re:Thank the Republicans and the TEA Party (614 comments)

Seriously? What the tea party really wants, is to reduce government spending to levels that actually fucking make sense. I personally consider myself a libertarian, because the name "Tea Partier" has Sarah Palin written all over it (and we all know what a dumbass she is).

As a country, we are living outside of our means. I personally know several people on welfare and food stamps that I HAVE OFFERED JOBS TO, but refuse because they would lose their government benefits. I know a few people who truly need government assistance, but the vast majority do not. The simple fact of the matter is that more and more people have the "entitlement" mentality, that the country owes them something for free, which is frankly bullshit.

As a small business owner, obamacare is possibly the worst incentive to growth. Guess what happens if I go over 50 employees by 2014 and don't provide healthcare to my employees? I lay people off until I have less than 50, because frankly I can't afford to pay their health care, as I can barely afford mine.

What honestly needs to happen to make this country work again, is to have the government GTFO of the way of growth. Business and jobs are moving overseas to places with less regulation for a reason.

Please, get fucking real.

How and Why Wall Street Programmers Earn Top Salaries

cozzbp Re:Wall Street (791 comments)

To repeat a point - anyone who takes a job on Wall Street right out of college is a fool. They recruit heavily on campuses for the same reason Microsoft and Intel and Electronic Arts do: so they can take advantage of suckers with no work experience who don't know any better. Thankfully I didn't make this mistake. I was able to put everything I saw there into perspective. Going from college straight to Wall Street as a programmer is a dumb move for most people.

I am going to be graduating with my degree in Computer Engineering in about a year, and I was seriously considering Microsoft (I hear they treat employees really well). If you see this as a mistake, would you mind going into detail about what YOU would do coming right into the job market if you could do it over again? Thank you.

House Websites Jammed After Obama Debt Speech

cozzbp Re:Rewrite the Constitution or face default! (1042 comments)

How, precisely, does firing a bunch of people lower unemployment? Doesn't it, in fact, RAISE unemployment?

Well if you are a dumbshit, then yes. It's unbelievable how you really fail to see the issue here. Our country has a debt that is unsustainable, and is rising. If we don't fire anyone now, get rid of all the bloated shit in our government, and actually be frugal in our federal spending, then no one has a job, because who wants to work for a piece of shit paper that's worthless? We just need to cut back on federal spending, impose tarrifs on imports if necessary, and let our economy get going again.

House Websites Jammed After Obama Debt Speech

cozzbp Re:I couldn't agree with Obama more.... (1042 comments)

Or how about the Democrats that bitched about the Bush stimulus plan? And the republicans years later bitching about the Obama stimulus plan? Obama and Bush are the same person to me. Stupid dumbasses.

House Websites Jammed After Obama Debt Speech

cozzbp Re:Campaign Promises (1042 comments)

I entirely agree. I consider myself very libertarian and honestly I believe that the Tea Party movement is breaking the chokehold the bipartisan system has on the US. Long-time politicians realize this, and many of the douchebags of the Republican party are trying to align themselves with the Tea Party in the interest of their own survival. Most people agree that the federal government is WAY too big, and too powerful. But when honest to god change is possible, the big political media machines (Fox & MSNBC) paint those people as crazy. People don't like to think. People just like to say, "Oh I'm a Rep/Dem and I believe in everything my party does, despite the fact that all I see in both parties are power hungry fascist assholes". The two party system exists to offer the illusion of choice. Given the fact that the two candidates chosen to run the country in the 2008 election were fucking Obama and McCain, I really have no hope for our country.

House Websites Jammed After Obama Debt Speech

cozzbp Re:games (1042 comments)

You seem to have missed the part where Obama hasn't made any effort to pull the troops out of the middle east, and is starting up more bullshit we don't need in Libya. He also extended the Bush tax cuts.... I really don't understand why you dumbasses can't realize that the Republicrats don't give two shits about you.

Lucas Loses Star Wars Stormtrooper Copyright Case

cozzbp Re:So goes a once-talented filmmaker (325 comments)

Well, from what I've been told, George Lucas' old wife helped touch up a lot of the original scripts (she actually won numerous awards for her work). Star Wars episode I was long after they were divorced, and she wasn't there to fix a lot of his mistakes.

Earth's Population To Hit 7 Billion This Year

cozzbp Re:Unsustainable growth (461 comments)

Well, also consider that the wars "these days" are like little scuffles when compared with wars like WWII. When another world war breaks out, you can bet there will be nukes, biological weapons, and an unholy amount of deaths around the globe.

Anonymous Releases 90,000 Military E-Mail Accounts

Wouldn't it be safer just to download it with HTTP instead of torrent? That way, you don't have peers who are collecting IP addresses. Correct me if I'm wrong, because I really am not sure.

If I could revisit / re-run a chunk of my schooling:

cozzbp I was stupid as hell (309 comments)

In high school, we had an agreement with the local university that you could just take classes there, for free, no hassles. They have since changed that, but it wasn't until I was in Calculus 2 my freshman year of college, and a high school junior was in my class, that I realized how stupid I was for not taking advantage of that.

Android App Quality Pathetically Low Says Developer

cozzbp Re:Uhhh... (336 comments)

That's because Apple users aren't the "fanboys" you slashdot nerds seem to think they are. When you show a cool lock-screen widget or whatever, we don't get defensive like Android fans do. We're like, "hey, that's pretty cool", then happily continue using our iPhones. We don't feel personally threatened if some other product is nice or better in some way.

Android App Quality Pathetically Low Says Developer

cozzbp Re:Uhhh... (336 comments)

I never insulted apple actually. I have plenty of friends who are apple users, and that is fine. In fact, I own a macbook.

This is a perfect example of EVERYTHING negative you all claim about Apple "fanboys". Say what you will about fanboys, but Fandroids are the worst.

Butthurt much? Protip: go take a valium and lie down in a dark place.

Droid X, I am now running the official gingerbread OS right now. Works fine for me, was rooted before, and as soon as I stop being lazy I'll probably get around to re-rooting it.

New Patch For The Witcher 2 Removes DRM

cozzbp cozzbp writes  |  more than 3 years ago

cozzbp (1845636) writes ""A little over a week after its release, The Witcher 2 is getting its first patch, and with it all versions of the game will now be DRM free.
Our approach to countering piracy is to incorporate superior value in the legal version," explained development director Adam Badowski. "This means it has to be superior in every respect: less troublesome to use and install, with full support, and with access to additional content and services. So, we felt keeping the DRM would mainly hurt our legitimate users. This is completely in line with what we said before the release of The Witcher 2. We felt DRM was necessary to prevent the game being pirated and leaked before release.""

Good Internships for Computer Engineering Student?

cozzbp cozzbp writes  |  more than 3 years ago

cozzbp (1845636) writes "I am a sophomore Computer Engineering student looking to do an internship soon. Does anyone here have any advice on what sorts of internships would be most beneficial? I have thought about applying to the big companies (Microsoft, Apple, Google, etc), some defense contracting companies (Lockheed Martin, Boeing, L3, etc), and some small start up companies, and was wondering which would help jumpstart my career best."

N. Korea says war with South would go nuclear

cozzbp cozzbp writes  |  more than 3 years ago

cozzbp (1845636) writes "According to reports from the Uriminzokkiri, the official website of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, a war with South Korea would involve nuclear weapons, and '[will] not be limited to the Korean peninsula.' The article goes on, 'The Korean peninsula remains a region fraught with the greatest danger of war in the world. This is entirely attributable to the US pursuance of the policy of aggression against the DPRK (North Korea).'"
