Blade Runner 2 Script Done, Harrison Ford Says "the Best Ever"

jazman_777 Read the Book (299 comments)

It's way better than the Blade Runner movie, although the movie depicts the feel of the environment incredibly well. The story is pretty thin, though, compared with Dick's story. Dick turned down an option to write a "dumbed-down" (that is, change the Rosen Corporation's name to Tyrell Corporation, wink wink nudge nudge!) version of his story for publication with the movie release.

The Hobbit: the Battle of Five Armies Trailer Released

jazman_777 The Hobbit didn't take the material seriously (156 comments)

What's so horrible about The Hobbit?

The movies are stretched and it shows.

Sort of stretched, like... butter scraped over too much bread.

Interview: Ask Theo de Raadt What You Will

jazman_777 NSA Involvement (290 comments)

Given the pervasive nature of NSA compromising, do you know of any attempts by the NSA to put in backdoors or otherwise compromise OpenBSD--either by approaching you directly, or by infiltration?

Former Dev Gives Gloomy Outlook On Linux Support For the Opera Browser

jazman_777 Re:Another webkit is irrelevent (181 comments)

Not at the moment. They continue to use Presto in Opera Mini and in embedded, so they don't want to open source it, no explicit reason beyond that given. (I read this at the http://blogs.opera.com/desktop site in the comments to one of the posts, can't find it...)

Former Dev Gives Gloomy Outlook On Linux Support For the Opera Browser

jazman_777 For Those Who Forgot about Opera (181 comments)

Opera users typically were hardcore about it, and would only let go when you pried their cold dead hand away from it. I've been a longtime Opera user...the new version is derisively called "Chropera" and I've dumped it. It's just bad, so many of the things that made Opera are gone, so why use this Chropera? It didn't even have a bookmark manager, just that stupid Speed Dial. And then there is the general evasiveness of the devs, especially about a Linux version. So if you've forgotten about it, consider it a mercy. For those of us who loved using Opera, it's very painful.

Zynga Puts Random Stranger In Customer Support Role

jazman_777 Re:My Oma did this too (158 comments)

My work mobile phone happens to be the same number as a restaurant, except a different (nearby) area code. So I get a couple of calls a week. I've gotten calls from the state department of revenue, too. Someone keeps trying over and over, and just can't figure out the area code thing.

U.S. Authorizes Sales of American Communication Tech To Iran

jazman_777 Subversion (108 comments)

Just another USG subversion campaign. If you don't bend the knee to the USG-led globalist finance system, you are targeted. I wonder what color of Soros-funded "revolution" is coming soon to Iran?

Opera Releases Its First Chromium-Based Browser

jazman_777 Re:R.I.P. (191 comments)

Trying Chrome. It's OK, as good as Firefox at least for me. I'll stick with it for a while to see if I can deal with it long term.

Opera Releases Its First Chromium-Based Browser

jazman_777 Re:R.I.P. (191 comments)

When I tried Chrome, I just didn't like it. I hated the bookmarks management. I like the customizability of the interface of Opera, so Chrome (and FF as it imitates Chrome) really chapped my butt. I had been a sorta-Firefox user (for sites that Opera choked on) and the rest of the family was using Firefox. But then FF went spasdic with its updates and breaking addons, and I just moved everyone to Opera, mostly. But I might take a look at Chrome again.

Opera Releases Its First Chromium-Based Browser

jazman_777 R.I.P. (191 comments)

Just a flimsy skin on WebKit now. Starting from scratch they have a long long way to go to get to current Opera feature state. And the new Android version is a dead shadow of its former self. I'm now trying to get used to Firefox.

Florida DOT Cuts Yellow Light Delay Ignoring Federal Guidelines, Citations Soar

jazman_777 Re:Short yellow lights are a safety hazard (507 comments)

This whole incident leaves a bad taste, it appears to be open and unchecked corruption on the part of municipal governments. The kind of thing I expect in a banana republic, not America.

"America" and "banana republic" are one and the same now.
