Congressional Report: US Power Grid Highly Vulnerable To Cyberattack

jhoegl Re:After the fertilizer hits the ventilator (124 comments)

There IS measurable profit and increase in productivity, which will lead to increase in share price.
Once you realize a grid is down, and you are losing money to a preventable issue, you will be able to determine the cost.
Of course this is reactive thinking instead of forward thinking, something only money grubbing corps do.
Productivity is increased or recoupped because you arent hiring people to chase after viruses, paying OT to people fixing something in the middle of the night, and losing time on their work because of all of this.
I mean seriously, it takes 5 seconds of forethought to know how to "measure" this.

Medical Firm Sues IRS For 4th Amendment Violation In Records Seizure

jhoegl Re:They're just getting a head start on Obamacare. (365 comments)

Then vote wisely.
However I do find it funny the amount of paranoia involving government is greater than that of corporations... makes no sense since corporations have more power than the government right now, especially in hiring.

Ask Slashdot: Dealing With a Fear of Technological Change?

jhoegl Re:Old School B-) (429 comments)

As utterly useless as this saying is, because it is so general I would say at least keep your wits. Because a moron reacts to changes moronically.
Such as buying a gadget without anyone fully understanding its usage or potential (tablet), or perhaps buying something because others have it (rasberry pi).
The Tablet is a niche market that exploded, because the niche is pretty large (all sales people and children under 12). it will settle down, and will not take away the desktop or laptop. It wont take away servers or networking, and it wont do anything to programming.
Evaluate items based on what they are and what they bring. Fearing technology? no... fearing things that lock you down or keep you walled in some sort of garden preventing you from reaching your potential or the devices potential... yes, very much yes.

I guess... I am pointing out our moral compass is sadly broken.
Nothing even close to technical... which cant contain morality, because it is technical.

Global Warming Shifts the Earth's Poles

jhoegl Re:Three Gorges Dam (482 comments)

The world is not perfectly spherical and rely on equal opposite weight on each side to stay balanced.
With that said, why did they change from "centimeters" to "milliarc"?
What the hell is the ratio?

DRM also benefits websites on a continuous basis by allowing SSL connections for purchases and privacy.

TSA Accepting Public Comments On Whole Body Airport Screening

jhoegl Re:Ah, now the delays make sense (223 comments)

Society makes the law and enforces the law.
To view law as separate from society shows that one has a disregard for the law of society, and believes that one can then disregard them at will based on how one "feels" about them.
Sure there are some extreme or rare cases where the law causes problems, but that is for a judge and jury to decide.

You are making a point to make yourself above the law when you feel it is necessary, not when society does. Therefore, you do not want to be apart of society, and will be punished accordingly when caught.
This is how it is, if you dont like it... move.

TSA Accepting Public Comments On Whole Body Airport Screening

jhoegl Re:Ah, now the delays make sense (223 comments)

I did not say I would go through TSA checkpoints unless I had no other choice, did I?
I said if that is Societies decision, I will not harp on society for its decision. But I will not agree with it.
You see, there are two lines of thinking on this. The first is, we live in a society, and as a member of that society, I must respect its rules, laws, and regs while in that society. If I do not agree, I should find another society.
However, the other is, I am in a society that I disagree with and my opinion and thoughts trump the majority. Therefor I am right and have every right to disobey. Even though I am in a society, I chose not to be apart of it.
So one line of thinking acknowledges society, the other acknowledges personal freedom. These two can not coexist and therefor will always be at odds.
This would be fine, except that it is inevitable that the personal freedoms people have to interact with society. It is what living in a country, any country, is all about.
So grow up, it isnt about you anymore.

Homegrown Terrorist attack.
But I will still not give up my liberty for my security. I will die for my Freedom and rights, including being a victim of an attack.
Unfortunately, I am not the only one in this country... so I must yield to societies decision.

Police Capture Second Marathon Bombing Suspect in Watertown, Mass.

jhoegl Re:Make him run the Marathon (773 comments)

Actually, WWII Europe wasnt even our fight. We rescued Europe, and then stuck around to fend its weak ass from Communism.
Because the US stuck it out, and spent millions of dollars in Europe over a few year period, just to make sure people wouldnt starve, and then hang around to make sure Communism didnt spread, we get a great Fuck you from ignorant people like you.
Sure did make a few mistakes between then and now, sure did... but at least your family survived dick weed.
Perhaps you should be grateful about that.

XBox live inaccessable after price increase.

A quick shoot over to XBox forums shows multiple people with different ISPs reporting the same issue.
