kms_one Only 1K? (205 comments)

Funny that they use the word "only" when saying that a thousand people are still employed in the telegram industry there.

Why DOJ Didn't Need a "Super Search Warrant" To Snoop On Fox News' E-mail

kms_one Not OK No Matter What. (330 comments)

Don't let the Red/Blue Faux News debate cloud this issue. It doesn't matter who did it or to whom it is not okay and this policy should be banned.

Is Daylight Saving Time Worth Saving?

kms_one Cure for the common heart attack! (646 comments)

Chances of heart-attack were stated to increase by 10 percent on the days following the spring change, and to decrease by 10% "after gaining the hour in the fall" I've found a cure for all heart attacks! Set the clocks back an hour once a month! (I'll accept my Nobel Prize award in Bitcoins please).

Microsoft Restores Transfer Rights To Office 2013

kms_one Re:The Consumer Wins (130 comments)

This was going to be the nail in the coffin for future upgrading of office. Already at work I've been using 2010 for a few months and it just isn't as good as 2007. Going from 2003 to 2007 was a big learning curve with the new ribbon, but 2010 changed the behavior and keyboard shortcuts without adding any features that I've found.

Russian Meteor Likely an Apollo Asteroid Chunk

kms_one Re:I read the title wrong... (67 comments)

I saw "Apollo" and thought US Space debris...and considered hiding under my desk as World War III ensues. (There was one Russian minister that declared that the meteorite was not from space but part of a U.S. weapons test).

This is by no means an end. This story will continue on until McAfee is in the ground I'd suspect.

Amazon Payment Adds "No Class Action" Language To Terms of Service

kms_one Re:Why use paypal? (147 comments)

Buying from 30 vendors with PayPal: 30 vendors have your email address. Buying from 30 vendors with a CC: 30 vendors have your credit card. It's just that simple. The idea of PayPal is brilliant - The execution is just shady since they haven't been designated/regulated like a bank which they should be.

A Look At Competitors to the Surface and iPad

kms_one Re:RT is a LOSER (193 comments)

Yup!! What he said. I have a netbook (several actually) and they are often unusable for productivity due to the screen size and sloowwww processor. This device seems like something that I can actually get work done on. I almost got a (very favorably reviewed) Slate recently but decided instead to wait for Microsoft's tablet. I think it's definitely worth the extra $$ to get one that actually runs Windows 8 natively. A walled garden is only as usable as its app base which is puny for Windows RT.

Open Source Router To Replace WRT54GL?

kms_one Re:Haven't seen free N yet (344 comments)

Look to the Teddy Bear build of Tomato. It supports USB and N depending on the router. It's what's running on my WL-520GU and my new RT-N16. The RT-N16 has wireless N, 4 gigabit port switch, and 2 USB ports. The wireless is limited to 2.4GHz but that is the only difference between it and the theoretical dream router. The site is being upgraded right now, but this is the guide to use to get tomato working on the N16
