Online, You're Being Watched At All Times; Act Accordingly.

dyingtolive Re:Ohhh, Slashdot beta makes sense now (299 comments)

If governmental institutions have the ability to retain the data indefinitely, and you have no way of knowing whether or not you're one of the ones being actively watched, is there a significant difference?

Slashdot Tries Something New; Audience Responds!

dyingtolive Re:Resurrecting Technocrat.net (2219 comments)

I would follow. We could even submit the story of the ressurection on places like Slashdot (Is slashdot still around?) so that we can spread the word!

Steam Music Now Accepting Beta Signups

dyingtolive Re:I don't dislike Valve (102 comments)

I...I genuinely don't know where you got that notion from.

That aside, I'd much rather pay $2.00 to sit down and watch a cheesy movie with some friends I'll never watch again than $15.99 for a DVD that takes up space, but I seldom ever watch something twice. Music is a different story altogether.

Steam Music Now Accepting Beta Signups

dyingtolive Re:I don't dislike Valve (102 comments)

That makes sense. That's how it works for me for movies and shows. I don't really even have any DVDs because of services like Netflix and Amazon. The issue for me is that I already have the infrastructure in place for music. I have my backed up mp3 collection, organized better than they'd probably let me on their service.

I've looked into other cloud services too. I have a google music account with my music uploaded there, but it's generally inferior to the local player. Somewhere in the last 5 years or so, we decided that features like virtualizers weren't necessary. That's usually a dealbreaker for me.

Apologies if I come out ranty. Pulled an all nighter for work so I'm not entirely lucid.

But what can they bring to the table that old winamp and mp3s can't do better?

Federal Agency Data-Mining Hundreds of Millions of Credit Card Accounts

dyingtolive Re:I'm somewhat disturbed... (264 comments)

I have three "credit cards". I have a bank debit card, a paypal debit card, and then a credit card that's an actual credit card.

Technically if you count the cheesy ass HSA debit card that my employer considers "health insurance", then I've got four. Only one of them is a "real" credit card (as in, buying things on money I don't have).

Edward Snowden and the Death of Nuance

dyingtolive Re:This just in... (388 comments)

Naturally it had to be. "The decline of nuance" wouldn't be nearly as polarizing. :P

Ask Slashdot: What Does Edward Snowden Deserve?

dyingtolive Re:unpopular view: Treason, Jail. For him, and Oba (822 comments)

Both guilty of Treason, failure to protect the constitution and deserve 10 lifetimes in jail. I have no doubt his actions will cost millions of human lives over the next 50 years.

A strange world is one where we're prosecuting people for crimes they've not yet committed...

Office Space: TV Documentary Looks At the Dreadful Open Office

dyingtolive Re:I like the open plan (314 comments)

The original founder of the company that got bought out by the one I work for currently still comes in to what was his old home office years later (though he doesn't work there) to work on his own persuits. Guy refuses a assigned parking spot, didn't want an office. Just sits at a desk right in the middle of the floor, like anything else.

Tweets and Threats: Gangs Find New Home On the Net

dyingtolive Re:That makes sense actually. (144 comments)

I saw my mom for the first time in years just a couple weeks ago. If that's the best you can do, well, I'm really sorry for you.

I suppose the lack of teeth might be considered an asset, for some.

We make the world such an ugly place. Makes sense it would spread to places where there's an absence.
