my panties were all in a bunch and you had to come be reasonable do laundry for me and ruin the article.

You're right. SSD controllers are extraordinarily complex. Buggy implementations leading to issues makes perfect sense.

electrosoccertux feminism (641 comments)

it's time we tell them to man up and stop complaining about perceived sexism. That's life, and sometimes life is unfair. Men don't talk and bitch about it, they DO something productive about it.

Elon Musk's Next Mission: Internet Satellites

electrosoccertux enslavement of the poor (74 comments)

well, we live in a ridiculous time in history where some people can actually make money shooting things into space, or providing internet to people groups that any other sane superpower would have handily enslaved for their laborious productivity (IMF is close but not nearly physically painful enough).

If anyone can do it, it'll be Musk. He does what he Musk, because, he can...for the good of all of us.

Except the ones who are dead.
But there's no sense crying over every mistake.
You just keep on trying till you run out of cake.
And the Science gets done.
And you make a neat gun.
For the people who are still alive.
I'm not even angry.
I'm being so sincere right now.
Even though you broke my heart.
And killed me.
And tore me to pieces.
And threw every piece into a fire.
As they burned it hurt because I was so happy for you!
Now these points of data make a beautiful line.
And we're out of beta.
We're releasing on time.
So I'm GLaD. I got burned.
Think of all the things we learned
for the people who are still alive.
Go ahead and leave me.
I think I prefer to stay inside.
Maybe you'll find someone else to help you.
Maybe Black Mesa
THAT WAS A JOKE.
HAHA. FAT CHANCE.
Anyway, this cake is great.
It's so delicious and moist.
Look at me still talking
when there's Science to do.
When I look out there, it makes me GLaD I'm not you.
I've experiments to run.
There is research to be done.
On the people who are still alive.
And believe me I am still alive.
I'm doing Science and I'm still alive.
I feel FANTASTIC and I'm still alive.
While you're dying I'll be still alive.
And when you're dead I will be still alive.
STILL ALIVE

what?
oh, that must have been the beer...

I swear, most of the funniest laughs I've had on /. came from those with 6 digit UIDs and lower, particularly under 500k. It's like your generation was simply more well rounded and clever.

What Will It Take To Run a 2-Hour Marathon?

electrosoccertux Re:What will it take to run a 2-hour marathon? (254 comments)

About 2 hours

FTFWIKI

... Philippides, the one who acted as courier, is said to have used it first in our sense when he brought the news of victory from Marathon and addressed the magistrates in session when they were anxious how the battle had ended ; "Joy to you, we've won" he said, and there and then he died, breathing his last breath with the words "Joy to you". – Lucian translated by K.Kilburn.

so since it killed him, naturally, the first thing we do is try the same thing!
no wonder marathoners look like cancer survivors...

It won't be going anywhere. They have a warchest of magnificent journalists. 80% of the articles I've read in the last 2 years were not written by Anand. His underlings have the same passion for excellence that made the site great.
