Speed Cameras In Chicago Earn $50M Less Than Expected

deadweight Re:Easy to solve - calibrate them to overestimate (369 comments)

Around here we have had Washington DC put a speed camera in MARYLAND, we have had miscalibrated units giving speeding tickets to people not speeding, red light timers turned down, a stop light put on a major road where there USED TO BE A CROSS STREET but no longer was - so the light was totally ignored, and several cameras have been destroyed with no witnesses coming forward LOL. We even had a criminal SHOOTING at a car that was a mobile speed camera and chasing the operator off and that apparently delighted all the 100s of witnesses LOL.

FBI Says It Will Hire No One Who Lies About Illegal Downloading

deadweight *LIE* (578 comments)

The FBI does not want people to LIE to them. I can understand that - they need to trust their agents. Anyone who has been through the process for any agency knows they may let you slide on a few things as long as YOU tell them and they don't find out about it later.

The CDC Is Carefully Controlling How Scared You Are About Ebola

deadweight Re:Increased public vigilance?? (478 comments)

Ever think frequent fire drills condition this behaviour? In high school we would HIDE during fire drills so we didn't have to stand around in the cold/rain/heat/whatever.

What's Been the Best Linux Distro of 2014?

deadweight Re:Mint (302 comments)

I use it. It is easy to install, works fine, and looks just like Windows 7. For my non-techie inlaws there is no learning curve to speak of.

Lost Opportunity? Windows 10 Has the Same Minimum PC Requirements As Vista

deadweight Here is why (554 comments)

I decided to explore the world of Apple on the cheap. I got a used Mac for low $$ to see what we could do with it. It went in the dumpster in short order because it could NOT be upgraded enough to even work on a modern web site.

Should I roll out Softgrid or something else

deadweight deadweight writes  |  more than 6 years ago

deadweight (681827) writes "I am tasked right now with rolling out Softgrid to a large enterprise. 4.5 is still in Beta, so I have a little time to plan for once :) That said, is Softgrid my best solution? Does anyone else have suggestions for a competing product? Integration with SMS is a plus in our Windows shop."
