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.

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

jasonrice22 Re:Creationists (269 comments)

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