Slashdot Tries Something New; Audience Responds!

doesnothingwell Please call the "Big Dick" (2219 comments)

Apologies to the editors of slashdot, it's not you but the guy in charge we want i.e. "Big Dick". Its out and swinging around and it's here to prove it can out piss anyone or the group. So far Big is keeping his head down, not very manly to start a shitstorm and not take public credit. Well Dick, your name will eventually become known and your reputation will suffer more for this delay. Grow a pair! (some apologies if its really the "Big Clit")

We have tar, feathers, pitchforks and torches, getting the picture?

Up To a Quarter of California Smog Comes From China

doesnothingwell Re:Somehow fitting (259 comments)

A lot of people don't understand that the less they give as customers, the less they'll receive as employees.

Because the CxO or shareholders always trickle down those profits to the little peoples, instead of buying another $50 million yacht.

Data Analysts Attempt To Predict World's Largest Music Vote, Again

doesnothingwell Re:Approximately 10% of the votes (41 comments)

It's not voting, its masturbation, now with a new and improved predictive algorithm. Now we know who launched it and where the best stains will land, and the music industry wets itself again. Sometimes it's depressing to be human.

Ask Slashdot: Are AdBlock's Days Numbered?

doesnothingwell Re:What's missing from the discussion (731 comments)

The advertisers win by not needing the extra bandwidth necessary to serve up ads to people that wouldn't click on them anyways.

There is no one that doesn't need their ads, they just don't know it. Its religious nutball logic at its best. Your own ads are always yummy delicious double good. Reality is ignored so that the (greedy prick) doesn't see his real image in the mirror. Every decision makers worst downfall is believing their own press releases. Advertisers have downed their own koolaid and the brain damage is usually permanent.

Windows 9 Already? Apparently, Yes.

doesnothingwell Re:Needs a lancher api. (1009 comments)

Guerrilla marketing slogans like Windows 8 it's really a Lock down System not an Operating System, or if you loved AOL your really gonna like Windows 8. Might get the message across but I doubt it.

I'm just tired of Redmond fucking up the desktop. The tweens can have Windows 8 and beyond, I think the grownups need to look elsewhere. We're not the demographic Microsoft is looking for.

Hackers Gain "Full Control" of Critical SCADA Systems

doesnothingwell Re:Some of them expose to the internet via VNC... (195 comments)

Some ot them are not real. I sometimes start a virtual machine with Vnc wide open on 5800 and use a DOD emblem for wallpaper.

I've found hackers trying ports 5802 and when I tracert them I get a weird 2900ms delay leaving the last US hop at San Diego headed to the Orient.

The Other Exam Room: When Doctors 'Google' Their Patients

doesnothingwell Re:So.... (231 comments)

With electronic records, almost all of the hospitals are linked here, and a simple search turns up everything.

After being in the same local hospital system for twenty years I can say, not really. A doctor might keep everything but the hospitals do not. They remember your insurance data and where to bill/reach you, and even a ten year old defunct phone number. But some tests from 5 or 6 six ago not so much, its about tracking the money.

The First Prescription-Only App

doesnothingwell Re:No thanks (84 comments)

They can pull most of the data from my glucose meter already, no wait they all speak different electronic dialects. Glucose meter mfgs have tried similar approaches, but they charge for the software/service and data cables are proprietary. I can't afford diabetes meds like insulin already, supporting more medicine for profit is not on my to do list.

Best healthcare in the world my ass. You want the data? Pay Me

how can Microsoft mess up so bad..!

Often when Microsoft support sites fail to address my problem with a useful suggestion, I leave a comment about their proficiency. "Try herding goats, programming is not your thing."

Indonesian Politicians Plan To Quiz Snowden Following Visit By Russians

Our enemies

The powerful, rich, amoral, yes they are, and their currently in charge. Oh! you think because they hold up a banner with your beliefs on it they're "good." Nobody should have these powers without oversight. Maybe we should torture some more people, after all only the righteous should have rights!

Microsoft Customers Hit With New Wave of Fake Tech Support Calls

doesnothingwell Re:Do us a favor (201 comments)

Lead them on untill they think your starting the remote control session. Get a remote user code and password or two (say it didn't work) from them and then report it to the remote vendor. It's fun when you waste 20 min of their life and they swear at you. With any luck you burned a user account for their remote control provider.

Google and Microsoft To Block Child-Abuse Search Terms

doesnothingwell Re:100,000 search terms blocked? (308 comments)

Try searching for "using child porn for censorship" everyday, a few billion hits might send a message, if there's a working brain somewhere that can see it.

SnapChat Turns Down $3 Billion Offer From Facebook

doesnothingwell Re:Obligatory movie quote (188 comments)

Take the money and go invent something else. Or buy a basketball team. Or help bring an end to disease in a developing corner of the world. But don't waste your time and talents trying to milk one good idea for a few more bucks.

If you have more than a billion dollars give all your workers a %100 raise, rinse, and repeat. They probably earned it, pay it back and don't be a greedy douche.

Bill Gates's Plan To Improve Our World

doesnothingwell Re:Fan of capitalism (445 comments)

By all means, judge him for what he has brought to society. But you should not do that without judging him for all that he has took from society as well.

I can only wish Bill Gates wakes up in the middle of the night screaming "I'm not a douche bag" at least once.

Atlanta Man Shatters Coast-to-Coast Driving Record, Averaging 98MPH

doesnothingwell Re: "Driving like a fool" (666 comments)

consider 5 out of 6 people who play Russian roulette

After driving for 12 years over a 40,000 sq mi territory doing hardware tech, I would often speed without any accidents. It's a result of planning, equipment, and keeping sharp behind the wheel. Limited access highways are perfectly safe to around 90 mph traffic permitting. I would only attempt speeds over 100 mph on clear sunny days with little traffic and between cities. Although night or early dawn bambi might jump a fence and surprise you.

I cannot be that lucky.
