Michigan About To Ban Tesla Sales

ixidor Re:Telsa's lobbiest crashes (294 comments)

And if they had just one, or maybe even no warranty repair facilities ( not a dealership cause sell direct) in your state? would you be willing to drive 400 miles just to get a part changed/fixed under warranty? But i digress, selling the car, and getting it fixed are 2 separate things. they should be allowed to sell direct, so many examples both ways of direct/dealerships there seems to be no clear cut line. thinking about expensive things, most things have repair close by, notable exemption, computers. i would hate to think of shipping off a tesla to a repair depot.

Supreme Court Declines Case On Making Online Retailers Collect Sales Taxes

ixidor Re:Shocking news (293 comments)

cause the store .. is you know .. there in New York. and amazon is like in the cloud man. so yeah you there in a physical store paying sales tax makes sense. order a widget from a website, that has no store physically in NY, has no warehouse in NY, the only time they physically enter NY is by fedex with your widget.

Security Researchers Want To Fully Audit Truecrypt

ixidor Re:A costly analysis (233 comments)

except have you seen any of hearings regading sthe "so-called" charities? Not only did they use the IRS, but the ATF, FBI, any any other agency they could to survail these people. Say what you will about the "tea-party" type non-profits, the way it was handled was just wrong. either shit or get of the pot. They left these people in Limbo for years.

Ask Slashdot: Best Open Source CRM/ERP System For a Small Business?

ixidor Re:xTuple (163 comments)

Man Visual Manufacturing is a Beast. the last upgrade we aided with, cost the company somewhere around $4000. This was for a minor point release, not even the quarterly Service pack type release. It has a terrible instal procedure. is not centrally manageable. Compared to E2, night and day.

Will Robots Take Over the Data Center?

ixidor Re:remote hands on (141 comments)

came here to say something like this. some "master" cable sort of liek thunderbolt that would be data, power, kvm, networking everything all in one, and easy for a robot to undo. possibly something optical + power cable. whatever , just something to make essentially a normal server hot-swappable.sure a human can disconnect a dead Hp server and replace it with a new Dell, but a robot might have a hard time with the network jacks moved slightly etc.
