Ask Slashdot: Is Non-USB Flash Direct From China Safe?

fat_mike Re:Click the Contact Supplier button (178 comments)

The name of the supplier is right above the Contact Supplier button. That can be searched on. I hope your irrational "internet tough guy" persona works out well for you in real life. Also, "douchefuck" makes no sense. Am I fucking a bottle of douche? Is it fucking me? Do you actually know what douche means?

President Obama Backs Regulation of Broadband As a Utility

fat_mike Re:Not saying it's right but I understand (704 comments)

I don't vote for someone to go to D.C. and compromise. I vote for them to go there and represent me hence the reason we're a representative republic. The House has passed over 400 bills that are sitting in Harry Reid's drawer never to be voted on in the Senate. Who is the obstructionist?

UN Climate Change Panel: It's Happening, and It's Almost Entirely Man's Fault

fat_mike Re:Can we quit publishing about the IPCC? (695 comments)

The IPCC was set up in 1988 to assess global warming and its impacts

Let me fix that for you, The IPCC was setup in 1988 by a bunch of failed scientists who were unable to suck from the government teat of taxpayer money without some kind of scary theory.

It is always about the money.

Power and Free Broadband To the People

fat_mike Re:Why stop at Broadband? (262 comments)

A few handouts? Really?

Also there was no racism in his comment. Freeloaders have no race. Let's make a list, free housing, free food, free schooling, free food at those schools, free phones, subsidies that cover their utilities, free clothes, free free free money. Lots of free money. Money that comes directly out of your pocket.

And you outed yourself with this " few handouts in order to get themselves up to the standards that the rest of the country is able to provide for themselves, despite a lack of preferential treatment."

Able to provide for themselves because they work hard to better themselves, see above.

Part of me hopes you're being sarcastic, the other part hopes you aren't this naive.

PCGamingWiki Looks Into Linux Gaming With 'Port Reports'

fat_mike Re:Gabe Newell is perhaps the biggest driver of th (77 comments)

Why don't you go bitch at Nintendo and Sony for never forcing the companies that make games for their platforms to make Linux ones. Why is it always Microsoft's fault. Microsoft makes an OS, they spend a lot of time (like Nintendo and Sony) making SDK's that other "game development companies" use to "create games" that people want to play. Go scream at Rockstar Games, see where that gets you.

OpenPandora Design Files Released

fat_mike Re:Why Non-commercial? (65 comments)

I ran a search on games that run on Arm Linux and Windows Solitare and Quake 3 were the first two results. Quake 3 was released in 1999 for both Windows and Linux. My iPad mini cost $299 and run VMware view and games that run on the Unity engine.

fat_mike Re:Why Non-commercial? (65 comments)

According to the euro conversion, this thing is a MAME device that costs close to $600 before shipping and handling. The North America distributor is showing "Product no longer available" so it can only be ordered from Germany's Dragonbox. I also like the graphic on the website that says "Almost the same size as a Nintendo DS. Am I missing something?

Where Old Hard Disks (with Digital Secrets) Go To Die

fat_mike Paid Ad Again (128 comments)

EPC does the same thing. Though they don't degauss the drive. They completely destroy it. I am fortunate to have one of their recycling centers in town and believe me there is nothing like watching your hard drives go up a 30 foot conveyor belt into a 30 foot tall shredder and come out as slivers.

I don't work for them, I'm just damn happy they exist. Capitalism at its best, find a need and fill it.

VC Likens Google Bus Backlash To Nazi Rampage

fat_mike Re:Who are you talking about? (683 comments)

So has Slashdot now become the Socialist News that Matters? This is utter bullshit. All those roads and bridges you all spout about, yes in some cases DOT's built them but most of the time the states realized they didn't know how to do it and hired private contractors to build.

How did they pay those contractors or the DOT's that mostly fill potholes with asphalt....with my freaking tax dollars!

The Federal government does not produce income without taking it from the people who work. These so called 1% are paying 55.85% of their income to taxes to San Francisco California and the Fed. You should be thanking them.

Delude himself that it was his hard work.....I'm am just shocked at the amount of Socialist BS that is flowing in America. Yes, hard work is important. Were there roads before Ford built his first car? Were there bridges built by the government before the locomotive? Why do we have air traffic controllers and the TSA? The car, the train, the airplane...all built by capitalist individuals that then forced the government to respond. The private sector is always ahead of the public. You want a handout you take, I'm going to work as hard as I can, learn as much as I can, help my fellow humans as much as I can and have my voice heard with my vote. The fact that this post got moderated as high as it did is very telling Slashdot.

Could Slashdot (Or Other Private Entity) Sue a Spy Agency Like GCHQ Or NSA?

fat_mike When did Slashdot's parent company get bought? (188 comments)

On October 28, 2013, the Company entered into a new Credit Agreement, which provides for a $50 million term loan facility and a revolving loan facility of $200 million, with both facilities maturing in October 2018. Borrowings under the Credit Agreement bear interest at the Company's option, at a LIBOR rate or base rate plus a margin. The margin ranges from 1.75% to 2.50% on LIBOR loans and 0.75% to 1.50% on base rate loans, determined by the Company's most recent consolidated leverage ratio. Interest rates and covenants in the new Credit Agreement are consistent with the previous Credit Agreement. Quarterly payments of principal are required on the term loan facility, commencing March 31, 2014. The facilities may be prepaid at any time without penalty and payments on the term loan facility result in a permanent reduction. The Company borrowed $65 million under the new Credit Agreement to repay in full all outstanding indebtedness under the previous Credit Agreement, which was terminated upon repayment.
