City of Toronto Files Court Injunction Against Uber

floodo1 Re:Toronto Municipal Gov't divided (168 comments)

All forms of commercial driving require special licensing, except this gray area that companies like Uber and Lyft have created/exploited. The simple fact is commercial drivers are on the road far more and special considerations need to be made to account for that.

floodo1 Re:But but but (55 comments)

These guys are practically falling over themselves to stress how robust their printer is and you are actually suggesting fishing line? Stop trolling please.

Senators Threaten To Rescind NFL Antitrust Exemption

floodo1 Re:Could they get any more special treatment? (242 comments)

You just figured out why "non-profit" is wishy-washy ... people don't work for free and non-profits pay people so at what point are you hiding profits in people's salaries?

Face Masks Provide Chinese With False Hope Against Pollution

floodo1 Re:When I was working near asbestos (156 comments)

Sorry that your companies safety policies didn't expose you to the concept of respirator fit-testing. When I was working near asbestos, or even potentially near asbestos (unknown attics) we were required to get fit-tested for our respirators. Whose anecdote wins?

A Look Inside the 8K Theater Technology At the Newly Renovated Fiske Planetarium

floodo1 Re:This makes me sad. (44 comments)

Erase the hate. Not everyone shares your nostalgia. I for one welcome the 48000 pixels they are throwing up there. Hard to argue that they should have stuck with the 3000 star awesome looking "star generator" instead of the new 2000000 star generator that they have in addition to all those 8k projectors.

intellectualism

floodo1 floodo1 writes  |  more than 9 years ago i wish that the majority of slashdot wouldnt be so selfish.

seems like all anyone wants to mod up are funny posts, and truly useful posts. no room for +2 posts that are peoples comments.

post your opinion and you're likely headed for 0 or -1 :(
