Israeli Infrastructure Proves Too Strong For Anonymous

kaizokuace Re:Israel has nuclear weapons. (569 comments)

Very true about the wounded pride. But I do say, as a first gen american of iraqi descent, the people where my blood come from are seriously entrenched in very old ways and generally stuck in the past and have a closed minded mentality. Religon is seriously part of society in the middle east as it is integrated with the culture. It does not help that most governments in that region are completely corrupted. It will take serious change from the people themselves to have an effect 50 years from now. The state of things just saddens me.

More Evidence That Multitasking Reduces Productivity

kaizokuace Re:Mod parent up. (133 comments)

don't forget to plan your task schedule to account for context switching. That usually takes time to gear for a new context.

Can Anyone Become a Programmer?

kaizokuace Re:You have removed all doubt (767 comments)

I feel like there is a breed (most?) of designers that think that design is the final gift from God. The problem is that they seem to not realize that software design happens beyond a pretty UI. Or even a well structured design spec and a good UI to display that. They don't seem to get that what is under the hood involves a lot of design skills. Design isn't making stuff look good and feel good to use. That is a specific subset of design (UX design, UI design, etc.). Design is a creative and decision making process. Design under the hood is of paramount importance. Software designers, architects etc are always making design decisions. Unfortunately a lot of developers don't feel or think that they are actually designers.

So this jackass in the end is correct, design is king. But he unfortunately does not know what design actually is.

Birth Control For Men Edges Closer

kaizokuace Re:There's an option that's much closer to approva (407 comments)

fuck a pill, RISUG is a cheap, painless procedure. I think it can solve all unwanted pregnancy if it not artificially over priced in the US. It is in stage 3 human trials in multiple countries now. Also, no way do I wanna take something that can chemically or hormonally affect me. I feel bad when my gf has to be on birth control as it is the best option currently.

also comic book characters especially have been drawn by different artists over their years with their own styles. It's effectively the same as changing actors.

Ask Slashdot: Value of Website Design Tools vs. Hand Coding?

kaizokuace Re:Mostly a matter of preference. (342 comments)

Are there any tools out there that allow the hacker type access to design tools in a way that isnt a hinderance to someone who can't follow the advice of wizards, as they are silly folk? I come from an art and design background but I'm also a programmer and like to do web dev in code. Before I got into programming I would use something like dreamweaver but I never enjoyed it. The best things I have has experience with are stuff like Aptana/Eclipse. Having an environment to manage the project is probably the main reason I use such an IDE. Dreamweaver tries to be an IDE but its so ugly and the workflow is horrible. I think there just needs to be better code completion or some kind of static analysis for a web project. I think I'm starting to ramble now...

Developer Drops Game Price To $0 Citing Android Piracy

kaizokuace Re:Good news everyone! (433 comments)

another reason that helps apple get less pirated or have less security holes is because for the most part all the users upgrade to the new version of iOS upon release. Android does not do this. 90% of users are using 2.3.3 or older. ICS and JB users are like 6-7%. So all those nice security features in JB are only available to a small number.

Trolling Al Qaeda... For Peace?

kaizokuace Re:Right (207 comments)

High level trolling is indistinguishable from the worst sociopaths. CEOs, corportate execs, etc. troll their way to the top. They just get rich so it sounds like Trololololo.

Ask Slashdot: What To Do Before College?

kaizokuace Re:check out the college?? (335 comments)

for fun you can write a program to find minimum spanning trees to get to class faster....or you could just party all summer bro! The thing is, if you don't party enough before you are old you won't be as well rounded as someone who just codes all day. Also, other experiences in life give you insights to problems that need solving. Enrich you life.

What Would a Post-Email World Look Like?

kaizokuace Re:Not wave (314 comments)

It was an ill defined mish mosh.

I think the problem with Wave was that it did too many things in the same place. You have to deconstruct the features of email to then put them back together. Not just make some silly collaborative bulletin board. Email is hired for various features: messaging, sharing files, storing files, advertisement, etc. All these happen in the same place in a not-so-pretty format. When taken apart you can see that Wave should have tried to meet these features if replacing email was the desire.

A lot of people have been hiring Facebook messaging to replace the messaging in email. This shows that distilling the features works. For example, I use Google+ and Facebook messaging for direct communications with friends and Dropbox for file sharing and storage. The problem I think is that these features are too separate. And messaging on a social network is out of context for work or business.

ok end rambling.
