Tesla and Panasonic Have Reached an Agreement On the Gigafactory

I imagine Terafactory would only cause more confusion between tera and terra.

Judge Frees "Cannibal Cop" Who Shared His Fantasies Online

dougisfunny Re:First "OMG the common sense" post (185 comments)

I would think the fantasizing, "I am going to have to use the database to find someone who fits these parameters" would be the fantasy, and actually using the database to find someone who meets the target requirements would be the overt act.

New Evidence For Oceans of Water Deep In the Earth

dougisfunny Re:Noah's Ark Story (190 comments)

I imagine if anything the Zanclean flood is more likely the root of the Noah story aside from the timeline mismatch.

I'm not saying it was aliens... but it was aliens.

But, the comic says centrifugal force! It doesn't say anything about inertia and the normal force. And everything I read in a comic is true.

Crucial Launches MX100 SSD At Well Under 50 Cents Per GiB

dougisfunny Re:Ye Gods, an Ad (107 comments)

I think maybe the idea is that in 5 years when it wears out the new tech available will be so much better you'd want to replace the drive anyway.

Are you referring to the estimate from 2010? Other than that I can't find any numbers.

Congressmen Who Lobbied FCC Against Net Neutrality & Received Payoff

dougisfunny Re: Pretty much (192 comments)

That is an interesting idea. Split up the district's vote by however many people are in the district, and whatever parts aren't used directly by the people, gets used by the representatives vote. Or that could be displayed to the representative before they themselves vote to inform them of what the constituents want.

Then when it rolls around to re-election, you can see how often they voted against their constituents wishes in favor of the lobbyist.

Opting Out of Big Data Snooping: Harder Than It Looks

dougisfunny Big data found her? (248 comments)

It doesn't say big data still found her anywhere in the article. She made no mention of evidence that they had, despite the Uncle sending a congratulations message on Facebook.

Was there more to story than just the article on Time where she said her measures weren't able to keep the information private?

How Tutankhamun's DNA Became a Battleground

dougisfunny Re:tl;dr (89 comments)

Jaffa were genetically altered humans made to have pouches to incubate baby Goa'uld. Straight up humans are required to actually 'host' a Goa'uld, and human babies born to Goa'uld hosts share some of the genetic memory of the Goa'uld parents if the implication was that Mitt Romney was evil due to sharing the Goa'uld DNA, then no it wouldn't be Jaffa.

Blizzard To Sell Level 90 WoW Characters For $60

dougisfunny Re:Value (253 comments)

There really isn't a difference based on race, any given zone is the pretty much same for a Charr as it is for an Asura etc. Also of note, after level 30 things converge, and all 5 of your characters would be going through one of three options for Vigil, Whispers or Priory. And then after that, those funnel into the Pact.
That said, completing, even if not in their entirety the starter zones for other races is a good/easy way to level, as the XP scales with you, and it's a good way to get skill points while starting.
But for the record, doing multiple characters like that isn't always the best way to get a feel for a character, as a number of them you don't even really get a feel for until after level 40 when you unlock the second tier of traits. I found doing one at a time works better for me, then when you do go back to the newb zones, it will have been long enough ago that repeating it isn't as bad either.

Wii System Menu 4.0 Released

dougisfunny dougisfunny writes  |  more than 5 years ago

dougisfunny (1200171) writes "The Wii System Menu 4.0 has been released. It adds a number of features that people have been waiting for, the ability to use SDHC cards, as well as the ability to download and play things directly off of the SD/SDHC card rather than the internal memory. This was announced at GDC09 by Nintendo's President Saturo Iwata in his keynote. More information can be found at Nintendo's website"
