Amazon.com Suffers Outage: Nearly $5M Down the Drain?

havoc Re:Hmm... (173 comments)

Yep, I went to place an order while it was down. I noticed it was down, hit Slashdot to see if this was news or my local network, saw nothing, did a little work and then hit it 30 minutes later to place my order. Some orders will be permanently lost but that is normal for any business over the course of doing business.

Want a Security Pro? Get Politically Incorrect and Learn Geek Culture

havoc Forget education... (314 comments)

"Demands for college degrees and IT certifications and the ability to get IT security clearances should not be a priority in hiring,.. Forget education..." - Schwartau

While we are at it why don't we remove the same criteria from becoming a doctor, lawyer, or engineer. Not a good idea? I didn't think so either.

Ontario Teachers' Union Calls For Health-Related Classroom Wi-Fi Ban

havoc Hard Wired IS the way to go! (365 comments)

I have to say that I see no reason to use wireless networks when a much faster and more reliable hard wired network is an option. I'm not saying they should not have wireless available, just that classroom computers (any non mobile device really) should be hard wired.

Hulu Plus Now Available To All — But Be Warned

havoc iPhone App Issues (348 comments)

The iPhone app has a 1.5 star rating. It hasn't been updated in quite some time and doesn't work on [my] iPhone 3gs. It does seem to work fine on [my] iPhone 3g and [friends] iPhone 4g. It did work on the iPhone 3gs before the last update to the app though, so it is something they broke. The problem is that the video and audio is out of sync and unwatchable.

havoc Re:Bad timing for university students! (129 comments)

Use your lunch break. Problem solved. BTW, any employer who wouldn't let you take an hour out of your day for something like this is an employer I wouldn't want to be working for.

Was Bruce Lee Good for Martial Arts?

havoc havoc writes  |  more than 4 years ago

havoc (22870) writes "Every generation seems to have a movie that spurs interest in martial arts and increases class sizes at schools across the country. These movies are undoubtedly good for the business of martial arts, but are they good for the arts themselves."
