killfixx Rewarding the bullies... (797 comments)

This is why people don't like going to the authorities...

Not only was his problem not taken care of, but he was actually punished for trying to protect himself non-violently!

Fucking ignorant fucks!

I usually don't feel this way, but as a person who was endlessly bullied, I hope they eat a bag of diseased dicks.

Another person who will be afraid of authority.

And, what if this kid commits a Columbine-esque revenge scenario? They'll blame it on some other bullshit, not their own lack of souls...

...politicians. How the hell do we keep doing this?

I'm so sick of how apathetic people are.

If this happened in my state, I'd be writing letters everyday!

Not allowed to build infrastructure because it might put someone else out of business... Boo-fucking-hoo... We, as a country, have no obligation to support your flawed or failing business model...

Fucking fascist politicians... Those lobbyist presents must be wonderful, indeed! Especially seeing as how they're willing to sell out the constituents for them!

Ask Slashdot: Can Bruce Schneier Be Trusted?

killfixx Re:Trust no one (330 comments)

Hrmmm... You have a great point... More computers won't make the job easier... Smarter computers will...

Look at Watson... Specifically designed to measure the value of information in both directions and use these values real time as it sorts through massive amounts of data...

Areas where humans were thought to be the only solution, here comes Watson...

Law, medical diagnostics, computer software troubleshooting, etc...

These are all areas where Watson will soon dominate...

We can only hope the Utah data center will NOT have IBM as one of the contractors...

Ask Slashdot: Suitable Phone For a 4-Year Old?

killfixx Re: 4 years (682 comments)

Perhaps he shouldn't have posted it on the internet if he didn't want people prying or criticizing or trolling or etc...

If it's for security reasons, then ask that...

If he's looking to be a helicopter parent, then he should ask that...

Without a reason, he sounds like every other douche-bag hipster parent that wants their kindergartener to be the coolest kid at story time...

DEA Argues Oregonians Have No Protected Privacy Interest In Prescription Records

killfixx Just another example... (455 comments)

Of these three-letter-agencies twisting the law to fit their needs. And, without any of the necessary oversight that we were promised.

So, I guess my question is, are things going to get better because we have a more aggressive flashlight for exposing these secret interpretations of our law, or, will this just keep getting worse until something significantly worse happens? Something like, Egypt, Syria, etc...

Revolutions are nothing new... I just wish they weren't so damned violent and terrifying.

California Elementary Schools To Test Anti-Piracy Curriculum

California Elementary Schools To Test Anti-Piracy Curriculum

killfixx Indoctrination and Propoganda (356 comments)

It's worked for years with every other product...

Get them while they're young and you'll have a "___________" (insert appropriate noun here) for life... Customer, slave, zealot, etc...

The only problem is that government is allowing corporations to push their agenda in the classroom... It wasn't enough to have it at the beginning of every one of their Disney movies --you know, the ones that kids watch ad infinitum, now they're allowed to spread their FUD in the schools, too! Yay!

How long before we see "Lunch! Sponsored by McDonald's", etc...

That's not the only issue at play here...

The backers for this program (RIAA/MPAA) are all wealthy, so their kids will never see these things in school. They'll be free from the propaganda and allowed to be creative and free. But, not the common man, because he can't afford freedom...

Hrmm... I wonder if that's how this is supposed to work... Freedom for those that can afford it...

Makes me wonder if there'll ever be a Star Trek-esque Utopia...

NYC Is Tracking RFID Toll Collection Tags All Over the City

Do a lot of tracking of everything a person does and only come clean when someone calls 'em out...

I hope this "hacker" is anonymous... Otherwise he's headed for a jail cell...

It used to be okay to point out when your government was being shady...

Not anymore!!

Can the iPhone Popularize Fingerprint Readers?

killfixx Re:Progress! (356 comments)

Dude, how 'bout you get off your horse and tell us what exactly "reads living tissue under the skin" means...

You've responded with this exact phrase so many times now that you MUST be an Apple shill...


Not even once have you linked to any source or explained, even in layman's terms, what exactly this means...

I smell a fanboy...

I don't hate Apple, I hate ignorant loudmouths...

Sapphire because glass gets scratched... Sapphire (or transparent aluminum --I know, it's Aluminum Oxide) is nearly as hard as diamonds... Very impervious to scratches...

Court Declares Google Must Face Wiretap Charges For Wi-Fi Snooping

killfixx Not radio communications? WTF?! (214 comments)

That's exactly what this is... In no uncertain terms!

Fuck... Pot, meet Kettle...

WiFi is explicitly radio... and it's readily accessible without any intervention on the users behalf...

I regularly connect to unsecured hotspots without even meaning to...


I can't even express how utterly exasperated I am with our government...and the people that keep them in office...

God damn...

Well, there's one thing our government is good at, learning from past mistakes... Those gladiatorial games were great inspiration for our current raft of "populace pacification techniques"... TV, sports, and (to a lesser extent) religion...

When will we wake up... When will the common man stand his ground and tell those in power to go fuck themselves? When?

Anonymizer owned by Abraxas parent company Cubics

killfixx killfixx writes  |  about a year and a half ago

killfixx (148785) writes "Anonymizer, the company that brings you free anonymous email facilities, called nyms, as well as similar secure services used by activists all over the world, is actually owned by Cubic Corporations, the parent company that owns Abraxis, which in turn owns Trapwire. So, it’s possible, if not probable that all those activists around the world who believe their emails are safe may well be sending messages that go straight into Trapwire, the surveillance system that monitors activists."

Ask Slashdot: SOPA/PIPA Educational Material for L

killfixx killfixx writes  |  more than 2 years ago

killfixx writes "I would like to put together an educational packet, aimed at non-tech-savvy people, explaining why SOPA/PIPA should be considered an intolerable injustice. As most of you can appreciate, trying to explain this to lay-people is a rather long and painful procedure guaranteed to produce similar results as lecturing your children. I want people to not just listen, but be catalyzed. Does anyone know of a particularly effective video or website that's been helpful to them?"
