British Army Looking For Gamers For Their Smart-Tanks

fleeped Re:We regret to inform you... (163 comments)

Incapacitate en-mass, kill the ones that are *actually with intention to kill you*. Choice quote for you: Eye for an eye makes the whole world blind.

British Army Looking For Gamers For Their Smart-Tanks

fleeped Re:Great (163 comments)

You can always incapacitate rather than destroy/kill. A rocket is not selective. But I guess tech for incapacitating people is reserved only for civil unrest/disorder. Those bloody foreigners? Yeah, oops sorry, our rocket missed.

British Army Looking For Gamers For Their Smart-Tanks

fleeped Re:Great (163 comments)

Uhm yes, and when your enemy is not as technologically advanced, you can blast them in the old fashioned way.
Even if they are, it's not like they're gonna have a huge arrow pointing at the command center or whatever. Of course in such cases, you can always do pre-emptive strikes.
What do you think? It's gonna be a team deathmatch, and the losers move away from the computers? Dream on.

Let's increase the mental distance between killing people. "With the capability in the Scout SV, we're really looking for the type of people who play Xbox games – tech-savvy people who are able to take in a lot of information and process it in the proper way," AKA: "With the capability in the Scout SV, we're really looking for the type of people who play Xbox games – trigger-happy twitchy gamers who are able to follow commands, complete objectives, ask no questions, question no commands. No critical thinking required"

John Romero On Reinventing the Shooter

fleeped AKA: Romero wanting to jump on the bandwagon (266 comments)

Praising one-man work (Minecraft), then "if only some brilliant designers take the lessons from Minecraft" (aka like Romero, right?), then it would elevate the genre and the gaming scene etc etc.
Hey Romero, people have already been creating/playing with the environment, if you want to "refine", better start working and stop talking, others are ahead in the game.

It will be cool to see the comments in the thousands, even if all are screaming in unison the same two words.. "Fuck beta". But seriously, fuck beta and you're not google: shove it down our throats and many of us will be out.

Ask Slashdot: Should More Math and Equations Be Used In the Popular Press?

fleeped Re:Definitely (385 comments)

There's a counterpoint to that. When the relationships get a bit more complicated ( inversely proportional to the square of the log in the power of the absolute whatever that was), the linear and verbose form of text is not as helpful as a neat equation. You can 'read' it with your eyes multiple times really quickly to absorb all the relationships and see the bigger picture of what the formula says.

How Did You Learn How To Program?

fleeped XCom Apocalypse (623 comments)

Early nineties, XCom Apocalypse has been announced, so in excitement after playing XCom Terror From The Deep I start up BASIC and start drawing a logo of XCom Apocalypse using line commands.
Well, I've ended up working as a computer programmer specialized in graphics. But I'm probably still as inefficient in getting the job done :D

'CodeSpells' Video Game Teaches Children Java Programming

fleeped MASTERED in an hour? (245 comments)

From the dictionary: "to become thoroughly proficient"
I think I need an hour of CodeSpells and I can add Java proficiency to my CV; I've only spend a hundred hours coding in it, so I've set my skill as "exposed to" instead.

Ask Slashdot: How Do You Stay Fit At Work?

fleeped M O V E (635 comments)

First of all reduce the crap that you're consuming, that's quite important as you can understand. That said, whatever applies to you:
- Walk/Cycle to work
- Use stairs whenever you find the chance (ascending only, be kind to your knees)
- Take breaks to go for a walk
- Go running after work (run to home perhaps?)
