OpenBSD 4.9 Released

jack2000 Re:Why is NTFS read only. (137 comments)

"driver", daemon, kernel module whatever the hell you want to call it.
You know the source for that OS was leaked. I'm not saying developers should just outright copy it. Just look at the source off record and make your own implementation of it.

jack2000 Why is NTFS read only. (137 comments)

Why is NTFS always read only. It shouldn't be so hard to make a proper file system driver what the hell?

Microsoft Adds Selective ActiveX Filtering to IE9

jack2000 Re:NoScript (94 comments)

The basic features of NoScript exist for IE since forever, you can define custom levels of trust for stuff like Javascript, cookies and ActiveX per zones, you can stick sties into trusted and untrusted with variety of customization for each. It's just that getting to that and configuring it is going to be hectic for joe6pack and no one has noticed it.

I wouldn't care about this myself if I didn't have to support IE for people who absolutely must use it. :\

Oh that's an entirely different type of sharing than what I had in mind. I can see how this can be a problem with duplicate content.

Get rid of those. There's no legit reason two tabs should be allowed to share information.

Firefox 4 the Last Big Release From Mozilla

jack2000 Re:FF == the next Netscape? (236 comments)

Here's a simple idea for you. When i close a tab everything associated with it memory wise should be freed. You can tag stuff when its alocated that it belongs to so-and-so tab. When the tab is closed everything, EVERYTHING, even plugins and JS get killed/freed. There. Memory leaks fixed.

Device Addresses Healthcare Language Barrier

jack2000 Re:Call me an asshole... (159 comments)

You see, that's the problem with brand names for pharmaceuticals. It's plain stupid. All drugs should be referred to by the main ingredient( it's already on the packaging but it should be the main thing about their names) Not some marketing bullshit designed to appeal to people.

jack2000 Re:WTF is up with /. and PayPal? (92 comments)

It sure will eliminate money theft. Even if the crook kills you the govt can recall your money and give it to your relatives.

PayPal Reinstates Fund For WikiLeaker Manning

jack2000 Re:WTF is up with /. and PayPal? (92 comments)

Sure there is. Remove all privacy inherent in hard cash. Don't have untraceable money. Use cryptographically sound multi-factor authentication with a ridiculous number of bits in the key.
Make "money" revoke-able so when some one looses a case in court and is required to pay money if they don't WANT to, the governing body could revoke that money as simple as pressing a button.

You used the tag for the cite. The previous poster was complaining that had been dropped in favor of .

Reading your comment with the "quote parent" button makes much more sense.

German Foreign Office Going Back To Windows

jack2000 Suuuure. (901 comments)

Let me translate that for you: Our brain dead paper pushers couldn't be arsed to learn the very basic things they need to know in order to use an office suite slightly different than Microsoft's. What do these people need, really, word and an e-mail client? Pffft.
Also I call bullshit on his driver claim.
