Police Called Over 11-Year-Old's Science Project

diefuchsjagden Re:I recommend ... (687 comments)

I recommend the students parents' file suit against the Principle, the allegations albeit unwarranted will follow this child around until leaves school, and then my still haunt him. If there was any fault it was in the VP over reaction, but I do agree something should have been done HEAVEN FORBID His parents were called in and there was a private discussion had betwixt the school admin, and the kid and his folks. I would also recommend the vice-principle who reported this to the police be charged with calling in a fake bomb threat!

Best Buy Abandoning "Optimization" Service?

diefuchsjagden Re:Opportunity (156 comments)

NOT everyone who buys a Desktop at Best Buy is a novice that needs hand holding just the vast majority, I my self recently purchased a Desktop, the only reason I went to Best Buy is because I had a networking schematic due the next day and did not wish to sit in the library until close go home, turn around and get up a few hours early go to the library, go to work then hopefully head straight to class with a finished assignment if not head back to library! I couldn't wait for a new MoBo and PS to be shipped to me, it was just easier to drop 400$ on a decent box throw the HD that came in the box into my scrap heap toss my HD in and jump right back into Linux, with a total down time of maybe 3 hours between diagnosing and up and running. Needless to say this is not relevant to the car analogy one cant just yank an engine out of one chassis and drop it in the next but with some minor modifications you can yank a Hard drive, I may also add I was luck I had not built the Linux kernel I was running optimizing it for the old mother board

diefuchsjagden Radiation (152 comments)

Will I be able to use the electronic radiation being emitted from the high voltage lines in my backyard? or is that soothing white noise hum the only perk I can get from that, aside from cancer? Down mod me if you will but the first question is serious would one be able to charge just off the radiation emitted from power lines?

Testing a Pre-Release, Parallel Firefox

diefuchsjagden Inevitable (278 comments)

Why is this such a big issue? Multi-threading will make its way to FF when its good and ready to, by which point I fear Chrome will have a strong enough foot hold to give Google the Leg up it needs, with its vast financial backing to keep FF a second best Browser I used it from day one until Chrome hit and I just switched the interface being more intuitive, and streamlined or so it appeared to this damaged brain? It's only a matter of time until Google's world Domination is complete as they rightfully usurp Micro$oft and take their thrown, I only hope it does not go to Google's head as it did with M$ and lead to bad products such as Windows 98(!98SE), ME || Vista but we shall see, as they say "only time will tell"

The World's First Osmotic Power Plant

diefuchsjagden Re:Impact (262 comments)

Ok Thinking like the fish I would choose neither hydro-electric turbines nor "osmotic reactors" but guess what I am not a fish and would choose either over using hydro carbons to produce energy at least once that are set up and functional there are only localized ecological impacts as compared to the global impacts we are seeing from the combustion of hydrocarbons, but as to think like a fish again I would take the turbines over the "slow" death hyper/hypo salinization

Hacker McKinnon To Be Extradited To US

diefuchsjagden Re:Good grief! (571 comments)

Forgive me if this has been stated already in this discussion but the "claim that extradition would make the 43-year-old's death 'virtually certain.'" is on the same line of thought that breathing makes death virtually certain, the only way that I am aware of to make death uncertainty inevitable is already being dead, his death is no more certain state side than it is across the pond, this is the kind of logic that gets Drug lords who have robbed us billions of our "hard" earned dollars of on parole and the single mom who five finger discounts a can of baby formula to feed her infant child because she is to malnourished to produce her own breast milk because not only did her HMO cancel her coverage but she lost her job because she could not afford a babysitter, 20 to life in a supper max! God Bless America where Crime doesn't pay, that is unless you do it to the 'n' th degree

The ants here
"Kann man Herzen brechen
kÃnnen Herzen sprechen
kann man Herzen quÃlen
kann man Herzen stehlen

Sie wollen mein Herz am rechten Fleck
doch seh ich dann nach unten weg
da schlaegt es links

KÃnnen Herzen singen
kann ein Herz zerspringen
kÃnnen Herzen rein sein
kann ein Herz aus Stein sein

Sie wollen mein Herz am rechten Fleck
doch seh ich dann nach unten weg
da schlÃgt es links
links zwo drei vier

Kann man Herzen fragen
ein Kind darunter tragen
kann man es verschenken
mit dem Herzen denken

Sie wollen mein Herz am rechten Fleck
doch seh ich dann nach unten weg
da schlÃgt es in der linken Brust
der Neider hat es schlecht gewusst"

Ich mÃchte zu Rammstein danken sagen.

Why Isn't the US Government Funding Research?

diefuchsjagden No Funding? (599 comments)

Well Part of the reason there is "no" or very little research funding is due to the fact that the US is the last remaining super power so there is no competition! Then to top it off the US is to busy War mongering to be able to afford much else. They're too busy bailing out GM because with out GM who the hell is gonna build our Tanks and armored vehicles? With out war toys the US has nothing! I say let GM fall, instead of giving money to a company whose sole product is based of the internal combustion engine which will in a few short years be obsolete, that is if we don't figure out how to burn some thing apart from hydro-carbons in which case were all eFFed any how so let the floundering company die and get some new industry in instead. Spend some money on research and development for Hydrogen cells or solar energy or better yet develop a car which charges it own battery with a wind turbine turned by the moving air which it creates while moving. now that would be something worth spending my money on! let the people choose what our billions in taxes are spent on!

Microsoft Kills 3-App Limit For Windows 7 Starter Edition

diefuchsjagden Re:I think they're finally listening to slashdot (352 comments)

I am not so sure they are listening to anything or everything Slashdoters say, I know I sure don't and if they were listening they would open up their source and stop hiding behind "trade secrets" its not a secret the Windows operating systems are FAULTY, holey pieces of horse SH*T. if they really listened there product wouldn't need to be closed source because there wouldn't be much to fear. They just do NOT wish to lose a near perfect monopoly which apparently is legal to have in the US and is even supported by it after Billy set up his monopoly of Office it was deemed illegal to give it away with his OS making him more money because people "need" to have office and are now forced to buy it!

How To Help a Friend With an MMO Addiction?

diefuchsjagden Re:It's Called S.E.X (811 comments)

I second Goldberg's Opinion, is he hurting you sammydee? is the rent money still there every month? then why/how does his addiction hurt you? Sure this is your "friend" maybe this is just telling you that you are maturing faster than your supposed "friend" not that there is anything wrong with this but he is from the sound of things harming no-one but himself unless one were to count a GPA as a second entity! My suggestion to you is not to sign the lease with him next year wish him luck and find a new roommate(s) if the rest of the house wants to keep him if there is any other house mates, find a new place to residence. If all else fails get the hell out so you can wory about your own problems instead of HIS, they are his NO-ONE Elses so what do you care?

How to help a friend? Leave them the hell alone to live their life how they want and stop being so bloody pretentious in thinking this person needs to be "saved".

FCC Reserves the Right To Search Your Home, Any Time

diefuchsjagden So Much... (589 comments)

So Much for a "government by the people for the people" If my cellphone, portable phone, WiFi Radio, BT-Radio are physically harming you, or in some other way interfering with your life drastically, go ahead and search my house and EVERYONE else's who has any wireless/or wired broadcasting device starting with the Radio station at on the corner that makes half the AM band on the radio come in like sh*t, or not at all. Until I am interfering with any one else more than the next guy stay the eff out of my life FCC(Government) and I won't get into your "business." Thank you and have a nice day.

EoHDMI-Ethernet over HDMI

diefuchsjagden diefuchsjagden writes  |  more than 5 years ago

diefuchsjagden writes "Received my Daily NetworkWorldNews letter for the day entitled next HDMI to have Ethernet... My first thought was that is not very cost effective! Sure it may cut the amount of cables you need to run but Cat6 is DIRT cheap compared to HDMI, and the unsubstantiated reports have it pegged as only being capable of of 100Mbs so it is no better than Cat5, in a world that is moving away from copper wires to things which are either infinitely faster(Fiber Tech.) or infinitely more flexible(Wireless Tech) this doesn't seem to make much sense... What do you think?"
