h4x0t Laugh Track (226 comments)

Do you have the influence enough to get the laugh track removed. It, among other things, makes the show unwatchable to me.

Austrian Tor Exit Node Operator Found Guilty As an Accomplice

h4x0t Start at the source (255 comments)

Hardware manufacturers are clearly to blame for enabling this man to commit crimes. Transmission line owners are at fault for supplying him with power to commit crimes. ISPs gave him direct access to the internet, allowing him to perform these acts. I say lock them all up.

Emotional Contagion Spread Through Facebook

26 year old here. No facebook for 3 years.

Though, I'll admit that I am not the average consumer.

Cable Companies Use Astroturfing To Fight Net Neutrality

h4x0t News? (142 comments)

Is this news? This has and always will happen until it is made an illegal practice.

Watch the FCC Vote On Net Neutrality Live At 10:30am Eastern

h4x0t Transcript (90 comments)

Does anyone have a transcript, or is it posted somewhere, of the speech the chairman is giving (gave) after the meeting? He makes it sound as though the internet is more "open", now, free from the "rules" of net neutrality imposed on it. It's absolutely riot inducing.

Bug Bounties Don't Help If Bugs Never Run Out

h4x0t Seek help (235 comments)

I know life can seem like an endless rat race sometimes. It is difficult to refute that logic to a rational mind, but we are not simply rational minds. We love and lose and fix endless bugs, and we shouldn't just give up.
You should consider seeking help. I know... it will be from some git psych major, but it's possible they will put your mind at ease.

Smartphone Kill-Switch Could Save Consumers $2.6 Billion

h4x0t Car analogy (218 comments)

This just in! Economist reports that kill switches on cars that allow for remote disabling, rendering the car worthless, would save consumers millions, mostly in insurance premiums. (Just give us more power already! -govt.[largecorp, inc])

Financing College With a Tax On All Graduates

h4x0t This was my idea. (597 comments)

Except mine was a pk-12. Call it "The Institute" and charge 1% of future income (over a given threshold).

GOP Bill To Outlaw EPA 'Secret Science' That Is Not Transparent, Reproducible

h4x0t Ha! (618 comments)

If EPA regulation meetings are anything like ASTM or ISO meetings, then there is honestly very little room for the purported chicanery. It takes YEARS to get anything to move, and there are interlab studies done on everything along the way. IMO this bill is designed to leave room for additional regulation stalling.

These Are the Companies the FAA Has Sent notices To For Using Drones

h4x0t IAmSlashdot (136 comments)

At what point does a remote-control helicopter become a 'drone'? Also, Beta doesn't provide sufficient functional improvement to necessitate its continuation, or indeed, its conception

h4x0t Patch Notes (2219 comments)

Please detail what you think you are changing other than UI. We're technical people and we don't like change for the sake of change, or, even worse, aesthetics only.

New Zealand Spy Agency Deleted Evidence About Its Illegal Spying On Kim Dotcom

h4x0t Beta (222 comments)

For the record, I also do not like the beta. It looks like tumblr or some such nonsense. Get rid of the social media nonsense at the top too. No one shares directly to a story on an aggregation site, the share to the actual story. The only thing I ever share on slashdot are the (occasionally) brilliant comments.

No Question: Snowden Was 2013's Most Influential Tech Figure

Is a Super-Sized iPad the Future of Education?

h4x0t Picture is wrong. (234 comments)

Why would they orient the screen so the student has to look down at it? That would cause some serious neck pain. It's not a 2 kilo text book, it's a wall. Orient it with some ergonomics in mind. If anything, the enemy's gate is down.

Ask Slashdot: MMORPG Recommendations?

h4x0t Expansion (555 comments)

"... expansion.... cutting many skills for all classes...."

I purchased a lifetime subscription to this game in 2005/6 when it came out.

I left when the great BALROG slayer (not to mention Watcher slayer, Undead Dragon slayer, etc.) was asked to pick up sticks in the first zone of the second expansion.

I'm glad I left when I did.
