Seattle Passes Laws To Keep Residents From Wasting Food

jasonrice22 Re:Another terrible article courtesy of samzenpus (385 comments)

I'm sorry, I don't know who samzenpus is. All that I see is a legitimate article/headline that's getting bashed because of preconceived notions based on fear that somewhere some municipality might regulate how people dispose of their trash. I am libertarian/conservative, and I don't see the problem with local regulation of trash disposal.

Seattle Passes Laws To Keep Residents From Wasting Food

jasonrice22 Re:Another terrible article courtesy of samzenpus (385 comments)

Did you read my comment that you replied to? I said that they see disposing of food in a landfill vs compost as a waste. The headline is legit.

Apparently they see that disposing of food in trash bins instead of compost is a waste. I don't see the problem with the headline.

Wave Power Fails To Live Up To Promise

jasonrice22 Re:Mechanical stresses ... (198 comments)

So, yes, there's plenty of mechanical energy to harvest. The problem is that it might also be stronger than the stuff you've built.

It sounds like the same problem as cold fusion. Perhaps someone should try to develop dry wave power. =P

When Customer Dissatisfaction Is a Tech Business Model

jasonrice22 Re:Free market (257 comments)

Like a typical {political label goes here}, you only quoted the parts that backed up your ideology. The fact that Adam Smith understood the need for taxes and tarrifs fails to refute the parent's claim that he supported capitalism. Even "right wingers" understand the need for taxes, unless that are all out anarchists.

Illinois University Restricts Access To Social Media, Online Political Content

jasonrice22 More about Indoctrination (130 comments)

Perhaps it is because the university is more about indoctrination than education.

jasonrice22 No Luck on Linux (67 comments)

I got mine a week ago. I couldn't get it to work on Linux, and it has been sitting in the box since then. Version 3.2 was just a black screen, so I tried rolling back to 2.5c and got something but it was skewed in a weird diamond pattern.

Karate Champ on the Nintendo - The only reason I kept playing that game was to fight the bull in the screenshot on the back of the box.

Shark! New Sonar Buoy Will Warn Beachgoers When Large Sharks Are Near

jasonrice22 Re:Sam Kinnison (55 comments)

Go where the sharks ARENT!

They'll have to invent another buoy that tells you where the sharks aren't.

IT Pro Gets Prison Time For Sabotaging Ex-Employer's System

jasonrice22 Re:what a crock (265 comments)

the average time served for kidnapping is 52 months

I can only imagine that the average kidnapping involves a parent that lacks custody or something more mundane than what we are use to seeing on TV. The damage this guy did is likely more comparable to burning the whole building to the ground. Well... maybe that's taking it a bit far, but it serves my point.

Identity Dominance: the US Military's Biometric War In Afghanistan

jasonrice22 Re:Does that make Obama a "neocon"? (83 comments)

This isn't just about a single person or an isolated incident. The BLM has been rubbing locals the wrong way in Nevada for some time now. This includes events that lead to the local sheriff (Tony DeMeo) threatening to arrest BLM agents for illegal search and seizures against his constituents. http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1289150

Avoiding a blood bath over a cattle grazing dispute seems reasonable.

4) "The people of the United States should be forbidden to have in their possession any firearms, or any other type of weapon. The possession of weapons can make it difficult to collect taxes and dues and supports rebellion."

Was it: A) FDR, B) Al Gore, C) Truman, or D) Harry Reid?

Toyotomi Hideyoshi was the closest one I could find for #4

Ask Slashdot: Do Any Development Shops Build-Test-Deploy On A Cloud Service?

jasonrice22 Re:50%+ cheaper not to use the cloud (119 comments)

You'll notice that when you watch cartoons on NetFlix that when there is scene scrolling or lots of changes across frames, that the quality will go down which is probably due to the mpeg layer compression that they are using to minimize the amount of data transfer, so it can't be processed on the client side.

Ask Slashdot: Do Any Development Shops Build-Test-Deploy On A Cloud Service?

jasonrice22 Re:50%+ cheaper not to use the cloud (119 comments)

Dedicated hardware also performs better per the cost especially when it comes to disk io. I've experienced minutes of waiting time just making a MySQL database around 15 tables none having more than 5000 rows, whereas it was nearly instantaneous on my local machine. I've also experienced a lack of consistency on EC2. If someone is watching an episode of the smurfs where it is raining, you will notice a difference.

IRS: Bitcoin Is Property, Not Currency

jasonrice22 Re:Cost Basis? (273 comments)

I don't see why it would be any different than any other business that writes off the cost of electricity and equipment.

Big Bang's Smoking Gun Found

Perhaps if the Bible said '7 units of time' then there wouldn't be such a big emotional fuss over such a meaningless argument.
