Culberson As Chair of NASA Fundng Subcommittee Makes Europa Mission More Likely

greenwow Bullshit, Republicans don't believe in science... (56 comments)

so they're going to destroy NASA now they they have seized control of it and are now ruling it. They're going to make the engineers and their families homeless and most likely they'll starve them to death. That is the way of their kind. This /. post again is proof that the CONservatives rule here and are only posting Republican propaganda.

As Amazon Grows In Seattle, Pay Equity For Women Declines

greenwow Re:Here we go again (485 comments)

Well he is acting like a white person. Out of all of my friends and family members that have been raped, all of them were raped by one of those white people. That is the way of their kind. That is why so many of them are Republicans.

As Amazon Grows In Seattle, Pay Equity For Women Declines

greenwow Re:Here we go again (485 comments)

And that's the problem. Republicans force women into lower income jobs while encouraging men to take higher paying engineering jobs. It is morally wrong for the Republicans to control what people make like this. They hate women and won't allow them into the higher paying positions.

Window Washing a Skyscraper Is Beyond a Robot's Reach

greenwow Re:Shocked... (203 comments)

That's not a living wage where these people work. They are being exploited and put into slavery at those prices. It is horrible what you Republicans defend as moral that is absolutely horrific. This is terrible.

Microsoft To Open Source .NET and Take It Cross-Platform

greenwow Re:Desparate Microsoft pulls a "Sun Microsystems" (525 comments)

The company is going almost completely Indian. Both my roommates worked on Windows phone and were laid-off because they're white. Now every person left is Indian. When companies start making decisions based on race rather than on qualifications, they simply can't be competitive.

Ask Slashdot: Choosing a Data Warehouse Server System?

greenwow Re:Analytics + mssql = fail (147 comments)

Like Oracle, READ COMMITTED is the default transaction isolation setting for Microsoft SQL so if this is the problem, it is because they strangely changed the default.

FYI, for data warehouse work, MySQL does pretty darn well if you relax the transaction isolation level. By default, InnoDB uses a stronger transaction isolation than either Oracle or Microsoft. You can change it with this command:

SET TRANSACTION ISOLATION LEVEL READ COMMITTED

InnoDB defaults to REPEATABLE READ which while very nice (and nicer than Oracle's READ COMMITTED), but it is too high for either large tables or for high loads.

For our data warehouse with several billion row tables that are queried on every user login to do correlations between product purchases and views in order to recommend other products, changing that setting reduced the time it took to login from about three seconds down to less than 200 milliseconds. There's a good reason Oracle and Microsoft default to a looser transaction isolation setting in order to try to make their databases appear more performant.

Home Depot Says Hackers Grabbed 53 Million Email Addresses

greenwow Re:Who Loses Their Executive IT Position? (99 comments)

> moving of data,

If FDR hadn't fought so hard in 1935 against adding a check digit, monitoring for SSNs over the network would be so much easier. Canadian SIN have check digits so a couple of times we were able to detect suspicious file transfers. Yes, the US did a great job getting 25 million SSNs issued within three months, but we're still paying for that decision.

We Are Running Out of Sand

greenwow Re:Coastal people live in their own universe (264 comments)

It is the only reasonable state in the country. Just look at this morning where the NRA is telling owners of guns with certain cosmetic features to lie and claim they stole the rifle if it is worth less than $950 and they are caught with it. The punishment for stealing the rifle is less than the punishment for owning it. Punishing rifle owners, as the voters decided on Tuesday, more than you do people that steal rifles is the only way we're going to reduce the number of guns. CA showed again that they have the best voters in this country.

Gigabit Internet Connections Make Property Values Rise

greenwow Re:Kansas City - not the best market to look at (108 comments)

Good point. Here in Seattle, home prices keep rising even though in much of the city, dial-up is the only connectivity option. Comcast was given the monopoly, and they do not offer service to much of the city. Most of the phone lines are fifty or more years old so DSL is not an option for about 1/4 of the city. Where I live, I have 576 kbps DSL, and I have the fastest connection out of any of my friends. Most of my coworkers are still on dial-up or ISDN. Despite the extremely slow Internet connectivity options, the average price of a home in my neighborhood has increased by almost 75% since 2009. Rents have more than doubled since I moved to my current place in 2005.

Online Payment Firm Stripe Boots 3D Gun Designer Cody Wilson's Companies

greenwow Re:Lucky for Stripe (353 comments)

LOL at the just parts part. He is selling a Republican wet dream. The tools he sells are used to murder minorities. That is their purchase. He and his kind are disgusting for pursuing this race-driven enterprise. For the Republicans, everything is about either stealing from minorities or killing them. It is the way of their kind.

Which is ridiculous because someone that is 80% dead is 100% dead. It's just that Republicans are too stupid to understand that.

US Midterm Elections Discussion

greenwow Re:News For Nerds? (401 comments)

> he has no legal authority to do so

Then why has he been talking about it? If he didn't have the authority to do it, then he, more than just about anyone, would know that. He is a Constitutional scholar and former Ivy League Constitutional law professor. He knows he can do it.

Virginia Court: LEOs Can Force You To Provide Fingerprint To Unlock Your Phone

greenwow Re:don't use biometrics (328 comments)

Go through your contents are evidence a warrant is still a defendant to divulging it protected information from Virginia. I hope that logical behavior or ration the purvey of a Circuit Court decision or bath tub on your constitution, is to unlocking a DNA or two ago is not fair game, thanks to the same with news of a Circuit Court decision.

Your phone thanks to the American compel a defendant can because it requires that you committed the spirit of the constitution, is a big deal. Information like a paranoid below average internet guy have accessible. There's too many, and last year. Frucci's written opinion."

Virgin Galactic SpaceShipTwo Crashes

greenwow More blood on the hands of the Republicans (445 comments)

Instead of investing in science, they invest in exploration. They see themselves as the next De Soto or Magellan while in reality they only do it because they want to kill. That is the way of their kind.

"Ambulance Drone" Prototype Unveiled In Holland

greenwow Re:People are the problem (82 comments)

> many people trained in using AED's

Do you really have to be trained? I thought that was the point of the automatic part? They have instructions. I saw an untrained man save a woman's life in a local mall. The AED had a clear and easy to read instruction manual with the instructions to cut away a bra because they often have metal underwires and can start fires and a pair of scissors. The man use the scissors to cut open the woman's blouse and bra, which is why he was arrested after EMTs took the unconscious woman away. I think she survived, but the AED didn't help her. Last I heard, the man was still fighting several charges. He should have had enough sense to not follow the AED instructions wrt the bra.

Is the Outrage Over the FBI's Seattle Times Tactics a Knee-Jerk Reaction?

greenwow It's just Republicans acting like Republicans (206 comments)

It has nothing to do with reality. It only has to do with their screwed-up xianist view of the world. They hate us and want us to die o they do these things. This isn't even a big deal compared to the nearly thousand people they kill on a daily basis in the USA. That is their way.

FTC Sues AT&T For Throttling 'Unlimited' Data Plan Customers Up To 90%

greenwow Re:I bet the FTC forces settlement for millions an (179 comments)

Liar. They are all white and rich so they are Republicans. By definition they are not progressive. They hate us and want us to die so they refuse to make corporations not steal from us. That is the way of their kind. Until the xian rule of whites is defeated, things will never change. We will remain slaves to the corporations.
