genghisjahn Let's just post all of our cards on line now (97 comments)

Then no one can claim that hacked anything. We can all say, "Bullcrap! You downloaded that off PostYourCC.com!"
Besides, they can't use all of them.

Microsoft Quietly Starts Accepting Bitcoin As Payment Method

genghisjahn Re:As a Market Lover (107 comments)

I don't know that BTC will ultimately prove to be the way to go, but I do think something like that will catch on in a big way. If you haven't seen it, Andreas M. Antonopoulos's video about BitCoin is pretty informative. https://www.youtube.com/watch?...

Scotland Votes No To Independence

genghisjahn Re:The over-65's swung it for No (474 comments)

It is possible that they looked the issue over and decided to vote No. Just because some over 65 disagrees with you does not mean they are fools.

Ask Slashdot: How To Start With Linux In the Workplace?

genghisjahn This! (452 comments)

"Now the problem is what works perfectly fine for me may be a horrible experience for some of my coworkers," So glad to hear some one advocating Linux say this. It's not all about MY experience and if YOU don't like it then that's YOUR problem.

How Do You Backup 20TB of Data?

genghisjahn Re:Crashplan (983 comments)

So you want free-multiTB-offsite-encrypted backup that completes in an hour? Backup is hard to do. I'm not sure what you're expecting.

PC Shipments In 2013 See the Worst Yearly Decline In History

genghisjahn Re:I'm not worried... (564 comments)

I agree, only with a tad less snark. But you are right, most people do not need the full power of the PC. Email, Web, streaming video. If a device does those three things then what else do you need? What's that? It makes calls too? One less device to buy. Heck, most people don't use the full power of their phone.

Selling in the digital age and WOTC's pdf saga.

genghisjahn genghisjahn writes  |  more than 5 years ago

genghisjahn (1344927) writes "A great blog post about the WOTC/PDF thing and why they probably don't care if you don't like it. Don't freak. He's on our side. From the article... "The applicable one here being that someone at Wizards of the Coast — not the whole company by any means, but someone — is working furiously to rebottle the Internet genie. Furiously. This person has no idea how to behave when the business of selling electrons turns out to have different, and largely uncharted difficulties compared to selling atoms. And no idea what to do when the customer becomes a participant in the product.""
