Google Rejects 58% of "Right To Be Forgotten" Requests

horm More Importantly... (144 comments)

I think the more important fact is that Google is actually complying with 42% of these requests. That number seems extraordinarily high to me.

Ask Slashdot: How Would You Build a Home Network To Fully Utilize Google Fiber?

horm Man up (279 comments)

Man up and wire the house. It's not that hard, CAT5e cable is cheap. And then you can install handy RJ45 jacks in the walls of each room.

It's Banned Books Week; I recommend ...

horm Rage (410 comments)

"Rage", an early book that Stephen King published using his pseudonym Richard Bachman. It's about a school shooting. A copy was found in the locker of one of the Columbine shooters, and has since been removed from publication and banned from every public library (although you might be able to find it in a "Bachman Books" compendium).

Ask Slashdot: "Real" Computer Scientists vs. Modern Curriculum?

horm Re:Not this again. (637 comments)

The chair of my Computer Science department told my class in lecture that memory management is worthless these days, and that you no longer have to worry about the size of your program or the amount of memory it uses. I stopped giving a shit about my CS program immediately after and began to focus entirely on Electrical Engineering.

'Just Let Me Code!'

horm "Just let me build a bridge!" (372 comments)

Engineering any complex system requires a significant amount of planning and management overhead. When you want to build a bridge, you don't just throw a bunch of construction workers at it and trust them to make the best judgements, even though you might trust each one of them individually to build a sawhorse or something equally trivial.

FBI Concerned About Criminals Using Driverless Cars

horm TSA (435 comments)

Obviously the solution is requiring passengers to go through TSA checkpoints before they are able to board or disembark from any driverless car.

But seriously, if these are concerns for driverless cars, they are concerns for regular cars too. It's not improbable to build a working remote-controlled car from any normal model anyways. It's regularly done for stun work, Mythbusters, etc.
