gonk Re:Does it scare anyone else? (83 comments)

It scares me that enough people couldn't handle reading a man page that a book was written, if that is what you mean.

Google Chrome 27 Is Out: 5% Faster Page Loads

gonk Text colors and fonts.. (195 comments)

It might be fast, but their font rendering sucks and they can't get text colors right. For those two reasons alone, I stick to FF. And yes, these are known bugs that have just not been fixed.

Ohio Judge Rules Speed Cameras Are a Scam

gonk "just don't speed" (984 comments)

On some level, I agree with the "just don't speed" people. The real problem is the traffic laws themselves. They are far too rigid. Rigid laws can lead to rigid enforcement, which I don't think is generally what people want to see. Unfortunately, it is easier to write a ticket for "56 in a 55" and demonstrate that "my laser gun measured it" than it is to write a ticket for something like "driving at a dangerous speed for the conditions". I guess. I don't know.

gonk Re:Ferrari without a paint job (341 comments)

Except the original VW Beetle had a whole lot going for it even without its paint. Of course, its paint was high quality, too.

BSA 2010 Piracy Report: $58.8 Billion

gonk Re:The truth is, you're a liar. (361 comments)

This about sums it up. What it tells me is that many of these folks have never produced anything in their life, much less a piece of software that people want.

BSA 2010 Piracy Report: $58.8 Billion

gonk Re:reducing the BSA would generate the most jobs (361 comments)

Wow. People can justify anything, I guess. He is using someone's work without their permission, period, end of story. I don't care what you call it, it is morally wrong and it is illegal.

Best DNS Service With API Access?

gonk Re:UltraDNS for me (221 comments)

UltraDNS is Ultra Expensive when compared to similar offerings from Dynect and DNS Made Easy. They MAY have an edge in terms of infrastructure, but I don't believe its worth the extra cost for most folks. That's just my opinion, of course, which I came to during my recent evaluation of the three vendors.
