How St. Louis Is Bootstrapping Hundreds of Programmers

gabrieltss Why bother - they will just get outsourced! (147 comments)

Why are these folks bothering. They will get hired by some company and that company will outsource the development work to India or some other country that they can pay the folks a dime on the dollar to do the same work. Why is there a shortage? So many companies sucking up the H1-B visas and outsourcing. Get a grip....

How I Cut My Time Warner Cable Bill By 33%

gabrieltss Re: ObiHai has a charge above the $40 - more (206 comments)

"Google Sets the Date for the End of XMPP with Google Voice
Recently Google announced the end of support for XMPP based calling with Google Voice. This will happen on May 15, 2014 – that’s over 6 months from today. Since your OBi device uses XMPP to communicate with Google servers, the end of support will directly impact how your OBi device can be used with your Gmail account and its associated Google Voice phone number. Unfortunately, you will no longer be able to use the Google Voice communication service to make calls using the phone connected to your OBi device. Also, the ability to receive calls to your Google Voice number, directly from Google’s service, will not be possible.

Fortunately, your OBi device may be used with many Internet phone service providers – all providing very low-cost calling to the USA, Canada and almost every country in the world. Most offer subscriptions and pay-as-you-go plans starting from $1.30 per month (including E911) and rates starting at 1 cent per minute to the USA and Canada. The OBiTALK web portal can be used to easily configure an account from any of these services on your OBi. Of course, OBi-to-OBi calls, using the OBi number printed on the device, remain completely free. "

How I Cut My Time Warner Cable Bill By 33%

gabrieltss Re: ObiHai has a charge above the $40 (206 comments)

"Obihai would like to share what’s been going on since our last article about the impending end, in May, of XMPP-based calling using the Google Voice service"

"Here is what we expect to provide OBi customers in cooperation with our ITSP partner. OBi device owners will be able to sign-up for a voice service plan provided by the ITSP, for as little as $39.99 a YEAR. That’s only $3.33 per month! Included in the plan will be; a new phone number, a set-number of outbound calling minutes, unlimited inbound calling, E911 emergency service calling, telemarketer blocking, and many call features like voicemail, caller ID, 3-party conference calls, call waiting, etc. And by the way, this low price will include all taxes and fees associated with the service."

Using Google Maps To Intercept FBI and Secret Service Calls

gabrieltss Don't use Google maps - duh! (137 comments)

I quit using Google maps a long time ago when they showed the location of an address in the total opposite side of town when I knew darn good and well it wasn't where it said it was. Also showing my address on the WRONG side of the railroad tracks and 1 mile east of where it REALLY was. That is on top of all the spam garbage all over it. I have found MapQuest much more accurate and full of less BS. Google maps is just to "hackable". Anyone can make it show whatever they want - heck just see how easy it was for this guy to do it. Google has just become Micro$oft 2.0.

US Secretary of State Calls Climate Change 'Weapon of Mass Destruction'

gabrieltss Re:Sounds like a veiled threat to me - yup (401 comments)

HAARP was shutdown in May of 2013 and gee all the high heat, tornadoes, hurricanes and hash weather seemed to just STOP or was VERY minimal this year and the colder temperatures moved in. So this makes one wonder how much of the activities of HAARP were causing the issues. Even the program director on the project had said in an interview that when they fire up HAARP, they literally set the sky on fire.

US Secretary of State Calls Climate Change 'Weapon of Mass Destruction'

gabrieltss We need to ban Dihydrogen Monoxide! (401 comments)

This is more dangerous than anything "man made global warming" could ever be! Why is John Kerry not waring the Indonesians about this danger?

Dihydrogen Monoxide (DHMO) is a colorless and odorless chemical compound, also referred to by some as Dihydrogen Oxide, Hydrogen Hydroxide, Hydronium Hydroxide, or simply Hydric acid. Its basis is the highly reactive hydroxyl radical, a species shown to mutate DNA, denature proteins, disrupt cell membranes, and chemically alter critical neurotransmitters. The atomic components of DHMO are found in a number of caustic, explosive and poisonous compounds such as Sulfuric Acid, Nitroglycerine and Ethyl Alcohol.

Ref:
http://www.dhmo.org/facts.html

Even Californians know this is a dangerous item - they are even signing petitions to BAN it!

Federal Judge Rules Chicago's Ban On Licensed Gun Dealers Unconstitutional

gabrieltss Re: "News for nerds??" yeah (934 comments)

Hmm, guess you don't know anything about the Revolutionary War... There were black regiments that FOUGHT with the white regiments. Also try reading about the different gun control acts... Yup it was the NRA who was so all over it because they wanted to stop the Black Panthers from buying guns mail order (for instance). The founding fathers saw fit to allow ANYONE of any RACE to own a gun. It was the NRA (the supposed defenders of the 2nd Amendment) who wanted to take that right away. People don't realize the NRA is a wolf in sheep's clothing.

So you you can stop the race baiting....

Federal Judge Rules Chicago's Ban On Licensed Gun Dealers Unconstitutional

gabrieltss Re:Took them long enough... - not far enough (934 comments)

That is how it was MEANT to be (civilians having same as regular army or better). Read the writings of the founding fathers and read history. During Revolutionary War times militia's HAD weapons equal to if not better than the regular infantry. So fast forward to today - that would be civilians SHOULD be allowed to keep and bare arms comparable to the military. Heck my 5th great grandfather who was a private in the Revolutionary War had a 72 caliber musket, it had more power than most of the regular infantry did. (That musket is still in the family - I hope to inherit it one day.) The founding fathers specifically wanted "we the people" to be equally or better armed than the regular army so we could defend ourselves from "Tyranny in Government" - which is about where we are at NOW. Most people who talk against or "around" the 2nd Amendment - generally don't know the history or the true background on it IMHO....

Counterpoint: Why Edward Snowden May Not Deserve Clemency

gabrieltss Re:Chinese or Russian Operations? (573 comments)

There is no -good- value to what anyone in the CFR says. Read some of their whitepapers sometime on the CFR website. These folks want pure tyranny. So it doesn't matter what they say. People associated with the CFR DO NOT want to change things other than in a bad way - for us.
