hebertrich Re:Capitalism at its finest (214 comments)

The model is unsustainable and it's well known that by mid century important resources will be depleted and that the Earth will not be able to feed the ever growing population. Just be patient , they are on a crash course to disaster , famine ,poverty and death. They will pay a high price for their lifestyle : the end of the capitalist system and society.

Why There Are So Few ISP Start-Ups In the U.S.

hebertrich Stop dreaming. (223 comments)

As long as politicians are involved and their little brown unmarked envelopes are passed from the actual players to them and industrials can contribute whatever they like to their campaigns , as long as money buys the politicians freely you think that politicians will actually do something ?

Wake up. Politicians in the USA are owned by industry and rich contributors. The interest of the People ? they couldnt care less.
In the USA , it's a governemnt of the people by the corporations for the corporations.

hebertrich Re:Big Government (405 comments)

Do the reverse and be slaves to the 1% of richest that keep gettig richer.That's the Republican way.
Convince your peers through lies that government is bad. All government oversight is bad eh ? Why care about inspecting
rails and making laws to protect the people against the greed of the 1% .. there's no need for any oversight of finalcial institutions
no need for people to work their asses off to protect you , ti's government , it's bad .

Bunch of liars, crooks and slaves to the richest of the rich , that is what you are , and you believe their lies.
Swallow their next load of bullshit and be merry. You are a slave. They won , you lost.

L.A. Police: All Cars In L.A. Are Under Investigation

hebertrich Re: Everyone is a potential criminal in L.A. (405 comments)

Nothing but sit back and relax im in Canada , have no fear if you got nothing to hide.
As long as Americans are comfy in their little houses living their little meaningless pointless lives nothing will change.
Comfort is what keeps the Americans totally immobile while their government fu**s them all. Nothing will change.
Americans will never do anything to save themselves as long as their pillows are comfy.In fact it's going to get worse before
anyone even starts to lift a finger. Way worse , by then , it will be too late for them.

NASA Scientists Find Evidence of Water In Martian Meteorite

hebertrich Re:Obsession (41 comments)

Frankly ,there's nothing on Mars alive today . Even if there has been 100 millions years ago , we're still alone. It don't change a thing in our lives.
Scientific interrest is the only interest. As a human being we got troubles here that need a lot more attention and focusing to solve.
Check Ukraine being invaded by the Soviets. Check wars all around. Do we really want extraterrestrials to see us under that kind of light ?
Warmongering , selfish, murderous ? I'd rather we take the cash from all those studies and solve the real problems we all face.
First on the list is our own extinction.

YouTube Goes 4K — and VP9 — At CES

hebertrich Re:THIS is fantastic news, For ISP's yes (255 comments)

bandwidth , imho , is less of an issue than download caps from internet providers. if we are to get video content delivery that is affordable , we have first to turn to our local service providers for necessary bandwidth and way higher transfer caps ( if any ) than what we have presently. whatever the way we look at a codec , take it's transfer rate / bandwidth and make a calculation for it's cost ( to we the consumers ) in terms of how much data it will " consume " for a month . That is the one obstacle that i believe is overlooked by a lot of analysts . What is the cost of getting all our media from the internet vs a cable subscription or even over the air hd ( which works well ) ? . Time to make calculations

hebertrich Re:Umm no. (248 comments)

All i read on the topic makes me think that the best security for the home is still to adopt a wild kodiak bear and let him guard the house in the family's absence . Soft , cuddly , though a bit grumpy on the edges Call Adopt-a-Bear and live happy ;) Tigers , i am told by people in the know , are also excellent to keep a house safe .. who knew ..

" Social networking " is an intelligence gathering tool under cover of being practical . All it does is gather data about you.
Cut off the umbilical.tying you to the secret services and police forces . Shut those accounts down , wipe the data out and never get fooled again by the Americans into trusting them with a single bit of data.

Ask Slashdot: What's On Your Hardware Lab Bench?

hebertrich essential (215 comments)

Essential a super good voltmeter , 2 signal generators , a dusl input scope , a frequency counter and a lesser voltmeter , but still 4 digits.
I will pass along that i have a small secondary scope for audio work. It's called a DSO 201 , it's the sixe of a small player , has a decent probe . Goes to 1 mhz. The kit fits in a shirt pocket : note that if you have one check the upgrade to the 4.22 series firmware , it works a lot better. So for audio it all fits in my small case with the computer that is very convenient. For larger or more complex work , the good old textronix is still the one tool i go back to .I do mostly Audio/Visual and RF work. That's why i got two generators , one rf the other is audio. Good tools do good work. Never hesitate to put the money on a good tool , that applies to good testing equipment. The well constructed and calibrated instruments rule our benches.Calibrate often and keep em in good shape. Replace the leads often as they dry and crack and may become a danger after a number of years. Follow the first rule : use caution whenever you play in electronic/electric equipment . Safety First !

Gawker Ford Video Exists

hebertrich hebertrich writes  |  about 6 months ago

hebertrich (472331) writes "This morning the Toronto Police ,in a press conference, ( by Chief Bill Blair ) confirmed that the video Gawker was trying to lay it's hands on alledgely containing images of the Mayor Rob Ford smoking crack was real and they recovered it on one of the drives seized. The file had been deleted , but was still on disk and has been recuperated.Furthermore , the video is showing other criminal activity and the Chief of Toronto Police has declared himself being " disappointed ". The evidence will be made public after the tribunals has it in it's posession and decide that it is proper to release it. So we won't see it for now , but it does exist and clears Gawker of inventing that the tape ever existed. Yet another mayor having a bad day. Earlier on footage of the mayor yelling at reporters to get off his driveway when journalists were trying to ask him for his comments on the found tape was shown on air , it further makes the Mayor Rob Ford's resignation in the short term unavoidable."
