Game of Thrones: Bush's Head Gets a Makeover

jimmerz28 Eunuchs (266 comments)

This is either some kind of "clever" ploy to make already existing box sets scarce or a way to push people to pirate the unedited versions.

Or HBO really just has no balls and can't stand up for themselves. Probably that.

Startup Skips IE Support, Claims $100,000 Savings

jimmerz28 Coaching (273 comments)

I'm glad at least the company is claiming to "coach" their customers to use modern web browsers.

It's extremely irritating when companies fail to educate their clients and just take whatever money grab they can even when it's to support a project for IE6/7/8.

South Korea Plans Hashtag-Inspired Skyscraper

Because I'd like to have a city which inspires and innovates, not one made of toothpicks that bores and tires.

South Korea Plans Hashtag-Inspired Skyscraper

jimmerz28 Not Creative (117 comments)

"Originally the designers wanted to build just two incredibly tall towers, but height restrictions forced them to get creative."

So originally it was boring as hell. It's sad that "designers" have to be forced to be creative.

Rand Paul Has a Quick Fix For TSA: Pull the Plug

jimmerz28 Which? (1051 comments)

How am I supposed to know which one of the two buckets I fall into when I start agreeing with Republicans?

This two party system is so confusing sometimes.

Oracle and the End of Programming As We Know It

I appreciate the clarification :) sadly I can't mod it up.

Was worried you were going to say that, it looks like all sorts of fucked up is coming our way.

Oracle and the End of Programming As We Know It

jimmerz28 Re:Confused. (577 comments)

I guess I was attempting to ask if they can blanket copyright the logic in an API so that you can't create an API similar to another API based on a high level description (although I'm probably getting patents confused here).

So from your nice explanation the implementation/logic is what is being copyrighted and not the purpose or "idea" behind the API itself.

Oracle and the End of Programming As We Know It

jimmerz28 Confused. (577 comments)

What exactly is implied by a "copyrightable API"?

Does this mean that we can copyright an API in a broad generic manner? i.e. a "web service that returns a JSON object of apps in an app store".

Or is the specific manner in which the API fetches the information the part that is copyrightable?

UK ISPs Ordered To Block Pirate Bay

jimmerz28 Boiling Frog (188 comments)

It's going to be interesting to see how people react to the slowly encroaching restriction on what we can/cannot access online.

With the Middle East & Co. the cut-off was drastic, whereas I think in the West we're facing the Boiling Frog syndrome.

People in this thread are asking if the governments' are slow/inefficient, but really I think the general populace is even slower.

New Study Suggests Wind Farms Can Cause Climate Change

jimmerz28 Re:Less Impact (384 comments)

The only complaints that have any merit are the (mostly perceived) detriment to property value.

We've had them for years powering Bowling Green, OH and if anything they've been an attraction. http://www.bgohio.org/departments/utilities-department/wind-turbines

Do you have any scholarly references to subsonic vibrations causing health issues with wind turbines? I'd be interested in reading those because it sounds like psycho-FUD tbh.

New Study Suggests Wind Farms Can Cause Climate Change

jimmerz28 Less Impact (384 comments)

This option doesn't emit carcinogens into our environment leading to health issues down the road.

It may cause climatological changes in the local area, but call me crazy for thinking I'd rather adapt to weather pattern changes than have my body try to adapt to carcinogens from current energy producing means.

FBI Raids University for Fraudulent WoW Gold

jimmerz28 jimmerz28 writes  |  more than 3 years ago

jimmerz28 writes "Seems that falsifying virtual currency and then creating 'fraudulent bank accounts' with the intent of selling World of Warcraft gold will land you with an FBI raid on your dorm room. Two University of Michigan students in Ann Arbor recently found this out.

I can see selling WoW gold, but fraudulent bank accounts? Cmon..."
