The Daily Harassment of Women In the Game Industry

ganjadude Re: Pft (840 comments)

re-read the article, there are at least 3 blanket generalizations in there that if a man was saying it, the author would be offended by. so while she may not have suggested it, she was guilty of doing so

The Daily Harassment of Women In the Game Industry

ganjadude Re:No, she doesn't. (840 comments)

the same is true for all groups. Go to any main stream blog these days and you will see hundreds of comments like yours, as well as plenty of insults towards white people. "White privilege" - a term that means nothing you say matters because you are white and cant possibly understand me, all while at the same time not realizing that if they believe what they are saying, they cant ever understand what its like to be a white person either, so they are hypocritical making the statement you cant talk for me, but i can talk for you

plus all the german nazi jokes, polish jokes, irish jokes, (all white people)

Long story short on the internet, everyone is treated equal, but as in real life, only some people actually bitch about it

ganjadude Re:Pft (840 comments)

And I disagree with your comment about 'nice ass' - unless you are complimenting somebody's donkey, this counts as an uninvited, sexual advance.

no, this is called a complement. perhaps you were brought up with no manners and have no idea what that is, but simply telling someone that she looks nice (or a part of her looks nice) is not an unwanted sexual advance. What next? "hey have you lost weight?"turns into sexual harassment??

Rupert Murdoch's Quest To Buy Time Warner: Not Done Yet

ganjadude Re:so one billionaire (62 comments)

I am a little less concerned with this than I am with comcast time warner. Regardless of what iu feel about the man himself or fox news, hes run a pretty good op to date. Having said all that I would prefer that delivery systems and content creators be seperate entities at all times

NASA Names Building For Neil Armstrong

ganjadude Re:"to Mars" (52 comments)

So...its still factual, just look at it as its being designed to go to mars, the moon is on the way, therefore it can also go to the moon. Its written for the masses, to them it just sounds better but its not any less true even if you dont care for the wording

Climate scientists say warming not as bad as initially thought

ganjadude ganjadude writes  |  2 days ago

ganjadude (952775) writes "Some new climate research, by pure accident is showing that global warming is happening much slower than anticipated by earlier charts.According to Ars;

The new paper adds an additional approach to handling the problem: simply run a bunch of models and pick those that, by accident, accurately reproduced the ocean's chaotic behavior. The authors started with the CMIP5 collection of climate models and selected the 18 models that include an ocean simulation that's sophisticated enough to provide data on the state of ENSO and other ocean behavior. They started these 18 models in 1880 and used historical forcings (solar activity, greenhouse gas concentrations, etc.) up until 2005, then switched to a standard emission scenario until stopping the models in 2012.

This by no means settles the debate, but it sure changes the way we look at climate change."

watch out Rapsberry PI, Theres a new kid on the block named Humming Board

ganjadude ganjadude writes  |  about three weeks ago

ganjadude (952775) writes "I stumbled upon this little scoop and thought the slashdot crowd would be interested in. The new kid on the block, known as the humming bird can handle faster processors, more RAM and will fit the same cases for the PI. Also, you can expand the memory and the CPU is replaceable! The low end model starts at 45$ and the high end goes for 100. So tell me guys, what are you going to do with yours?"

Ferrari Fan page creator ousted by Ferrari, Kid Sues

ganjadude ganjadude writes  |  about 4 months ago

ganjadude (952775) writes "Sammy Wassem started the Facebook fan page for Ferrari when he was 15 and eventually grew it to over 500,000 followers. In 2009, the company congratulated him on the site's success, but said that "legal issues" forced it to take over the administration, according to Automotive News Europe. Wassem could still use the site, but managers had oversight.

Wassem asked Ferrari for financial compensation to keep working on the page but continued creating content on it for the next four years. Eventually, the company terminated his administration rights. In 2013 he and his father Olivier filed the lawsuit against the business alleging it owes payment over 5,500 hours of work and copyright infringement for taking over the page. They are asking for 10 million Swiss francs ($11.3 million)."

California anti violence in video games legislator arrested on bribery charges

ganjadude ganjadude writes  |  about 4 months ago

ganjadude (952775) writes "California State Senator Leland Yee (D), a driving force behind California's legislative efforts to restrict minors' access to violent video games, has been arrested on charges of bribery and corruption. If you recall in 2005 Yee spearheaded legislation that would bar video game sales of a violent nature to children. (it was finally put to rest in 2011 by SCOTUS) When will these people learn???"

Apple cracking down on App Discovery Apps

ganjadude ganjadude writes  |  about a year ago

ganjadude (952775) writes "Apple seems to have a problem with its store. a source states that even app recommendation engines that facilitate “filtering, bookmarking, searching, or sharing recommendations” of apps may be rejected, and the ability of third party apps to interact with the App Store now seems restricted.

I know its apples store and apple can do what it wants with it but is it really good when it is the only option for apps on a (un-jailbroke) environment?"

Bug on EA's Origin game platform allows attackers to hijack player PCs

ganjadude ganjadude writes  |  about a year ago

ganjadude writes "Millions upon millions could be at risk due to the attack that was displayed this past friday at the black hat security conference.

"The Origin platform allows malicious users to exploit local vulnerabilities or features by abusing the Origin URI handling mechanism," ReVuln researchers Donato Ferrante and Luigi Auriemma wrote in a paper accompanying last week's demonstration. "In other words, an attacker can craft a malicious Internet link to execute malicious code remotely on [a] victim's system, which has Origin installed.

Apple allows kickstarter lightning project to go on

ganjadude ganjadude writes  |  about a year and a half ago

ganjadude writes "It looks as if Apple has changed its mind when it comes to the kickstarter project that was put off due to licensing. It seems that they have reversed their stance on allowing a charger to have both the 30 pin and lightning connectors integrated in one unit. Their argument being technical reasons prohibited it from happening."

How do you extend your wireless connection?

ganjadude ganjadude writes  |  more than 4 years ago

ganjadude writes "So I am moving to a location where the cell signal is very poor, (I don't get signal inside my house) and I have been looking at wireless extenders such as the ones that sprint and Verizon have. I am brought down by the cost (Sprint charges monthly, Verizon 250$ up front AT&T.... well they are AT&T) Being that this is Slashdot, and a lot of us live in basements, (I kid!) I assume that some of the crowd has had this issue in the past. My question is what have you done or what alternatives are available to someone in such a situation without bending over and taking it from the phone company?"

"In the summer of 1975 I learned about the invention of the microprocessor and about the first retail store where a consumer could rent a timesharing terminal to use from home," he remembered. "That very day I committed to found EA in 1982. I figured that it would take seven years for enough computing hardware to get into homes to create an audience for the computer games that I wanted to make."

This gets me thinking about how the other giants of the industry got their beginning."

FTA LAS VEGAS — Today Microsoft took the wraps off its highly anticipated home server software, the brains inside several products that are expected to ship this year. I sat down with a company representative to get a first look at what Microsoft Windows Home Server can do. The demo system was HP's MediaSmart Server, which was announced here at CES and will be available in September."

I was wondering what other /.'ers took this route and what certifications you have gotten to further your career. Does college matter in the security field anymore or are certifications the way to go? If thats the case what direction would you send a person?"
