Fukushima Radiation Still Poisoning Insects

deathlyslow Re:Relevent (119 comments)

Must have abeen a boy. My 14 year old daughter is in a stage that I can't understand. I guess it could be best described as "I'm an adult and do everything and know everything, but still need to be taken care of" stage. But my 7.5 and 9 year old boys in the "messy guns are everything" stage.

40-Million-Year-Old 'Walking Whale' Fossil Found In Peru

deathlyslow Re:Huge teeth (102 comments)

Citation please. Why? Let's see. I'm at work posting on /. so I've already spent too much time on the internet. I'm not sure I know the correct search terms. It's just too cool to know that I can use the links to gross out my 13 year old who thinks they are just the cutest little things. TIA

Apple Sued For Man's Porn Addiction

deathlyslow Re:False Flag (509 comments)

Heh, maybe he should have sued his wife, not Apple. It would have been cheaper, and either way he's not getting any. There fixed that for you.

A350XWB, the Plane Airbus Did Not Want To Build, Makes Maiden Flight

deathlyslow why no build it? (135 comments)

Why would they not want to build it? With the troubles Boeing is having, it may their best chance at making their name as THE provider of fully functional aircraft.

Valve Officially Launches Steam For Linux

deathlyslow Re:Goodbye Windows (313 comments)

That's still helping with development. You have to have testers or else they will never get the bugs squashed. One hey this doesn't look right is whining, that can be dismissed. Several people having the same issue means hey there's a bug here that needs to be looked at. Since when has not being a developer excluded you from being a beta tester?

Kaspersky Update Breaks Internet Access For Windows XP Users

deathlyslow Re:Quality Control 101 (92 comments)

My clients that have this issue are all XP w/IE8. Various manufacturers and patch levels. When I say my client, I do their switch/route stuff not servers/workstations.

Ask Slashdot: Dealing With Anti-Spam Service Extortion?

deathlyslow Re:NEVER trust and AC (279 comments)

I'm not discounting your points, but it seems he hit a nerve. He did mention that it was an ISP that he works for. Why is it OK for an ISP to allow everything through their network when it comes to other questionable traffic both from and thru their infrastructure but when it comes to spam it's off with their heads. Shouldn't it be all or nothing? If you want ISPs to not be filtering/blocking other information/data that we want, spam should be allowed as well right? I mean it's just data.

27 Reported Killed In Connecticut Elementary School Shooting

deathlyslow Re:Yay (2987 comments)

Not to be a jerk toward the people in Conn., but yeah you pretty much target the same areas with a gun that you would with a knife, Head, neck/torso. If you don't you are likely just going to mame them and not kill. firearms are also known as ranged weapons. They simply let you be farther away from your target.

Solar Panels For Every Home?

deathlyslow Re:Bureaucracy (735 comments)

My HOA has/had a guy that was like that. He turned me in every other week because my Bermuda grass was too tall. I actually sat on the board because of him. I was put in charge of the architectural control and violations committees. I was able to get the rules that allowed him to be that way changed. We have some very good commonsense rules now. Such as no more than two live chickens can be kept on your property for more than 60 days. No parking in your yard for more than a week without giving the HOA a heads up. Mostly so if there is an actual problem we have a legal leg to stand on. Oh yeah "that Guy", he's now known throughout the sub-division as the angry fat man.

But if the human built device is programmed for and relies on the three laws exclusively and is incapable of rational thought, it is not sentient is it?

FBI Dad's Misadventures With Spyware Exposed School Principal's Child Porn

deathlyslow Re:I'm still trying to wrap my brain around... (346 comments)

Just because he works for the FBI doesn't mean he is computer literate. The majority of them are nothing more than federally paid beat cops doing missing persons investigations and helping out when other LE can't do the investigation themselves. I think you and others are giving him too much credit because he works for a three letter government agency.

In a Symbolic Shift, IBM's India Workforce Likely Exceeds That In US

deathlyslow Re:What happems (491 comments)

I think you are the one misunderstanding. They will go back to a centralized computer and the workers will use dumb terminals. Citrix has been doing that for a long time. A wyse terminal isn't too expensive. Besides you can control what the user gets access to way better than with a pc at every desk.

New York Data Centers Battle Floods, Utility Outages

deathlyslow Re:Whee do you think the fiber goes? (186 comments)

Wow that is a gross over dramatization. No provider in their right mind would string one run of fiber when they were doing it, even if it was a backwater town. Having lived in a "back water town" for a few years, the local providers install way more than is needed to allow for the forced sharing of their network.
