Fark's Drew Curtis Running For Governor of Kentucky

ixidor Re:He'll win in a landslide (120 comments)

so the same ID that the majority of the population already has, because you already need it for so many things, like: voting driving id to get a job id to buy alcohol id to buy firearms id to verify age for other things etc... costs $10 and a stand in line at the DMV. heck, here you can schedule an appointment. Oh, they cant be bothered to go spend the $10, and spend time at the dmv, for something you might use atleast once a week for the rest of your life... and you want them voting?...

Canada Waives Own Rules, Helps Microsoft Avoid US Visa Problems

ixidor Re:Fucking Hell, Harper needs to go! (122 comments)

yes, exactly. in places where the min wages is over the federal, it is almost always because the cost of living is so much. like DC, or San Fransisco. try to find somewhere to stay in DC for less than $900/month, i dare you. or how about this... im hourly, $18/hr, about 36-38 hours per week. now take out taxes (i usually figure it at about 25% for all of it), child support $440/mo, and the company health plan im forced to get ( due to custody and paperwork from the state) at $220/mo, im left with what someone making $10/hour would get. conversely, it costs me more than minimum wage in my area just to cover taxes, child support and health insurance for my son. Don't leave much left over.

Ask Slashdot: How Do I Make a High-Spec PC Waterproof?

ixidor cooling (202 comments)

you have 3 types of cooling all 3 present different problems. -passive cooling. typical of embedded and low poer, pretty much precludes your fancy GPU. -active, usually fans. suck air in, breath hot out. obvious any rain or spray would get sucked in to, and damage the insides. -liquid cooling. would essentially seal your gear in, and prevent water damage, but is unlikely to fit in your space constraints. so either figure out how to live without the GPU, or see if you can get a small enough container for your oil ( still will have to worry about the pump and radiator parts but that can be made water - resistant). or have the number crunching done remotely, and just live with a raspberry pi encased in something.

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.
