SpaceX Falcon 9 Rocket Blasts Off From Florida

koreanbabykilla Re:So was the landing successful? (112 comments)

Rocket booster reentry, landing burn & leg deploy were good, but lost hull integrity right after splashdown (aka kaboom).

Detailed review of rocket telemetry needed to tell if due to initial splashdown or subsequent tip over and body slam

DC Entertainment Won't Allow Superman Logo On Murdered Child's Memorial Statue

koreanbabykilla Re:Superman logo is a Trademark (249 comments)

You are retarded, they could easily issue a no-cost perpetual licence for this. They just don't want to. There are ZERO legal issues stopping them. Licensing your trademark does not make you lose it. It is not going after unlicensed uses. I don't know how the fuck you have such a low UID and haven't read this here 100000 times.

Google, Detroit Split On Autonomous Cars

koreanbabykilla Re:US car companies are NOT finance companies (236 comments)

"Just because Google has a bunch of smart people working for them doesn't mean they understand the business of selling cars."

Just because Tesla has a bunch of smart people working for them doesn't mean they understand the business of selling cars.

hmmmmm.......perhaps you may want to rethink that last part?

Want To Resell Your Ebooks? You'd Better Act Fast

koreanbabykilla Re: The site does not commit piracy ... (72 comments)

i feel bad for you. You have really never read a book that you again want to read years or decades later? There are many thousands of books i have read many times. You are either young, or base your reasoning on only having read what you can get from the magazine section of the grocery store.

Cracking Atlanta Subway's Poorly-Encrypted RFID Smart Cards Is a Breeze, Part II

koreanbabykilla Re:The REAL value of the transit system (170 comments)

where i live the bus is always at around 10% capacity. The people on it are low income people with free passes. They charge me more to get to work than it costs in gas. I do only get 15 mpg, but own the car outright. Charge me 1 dollar there and back and i can put up with the order of magnitude time cost increase. I bet busses would be full and not just a crazy tax sinkhole then....

Even putting aside the facts that he was willing to break the oaths he took when he got his security clearance,

Like the one to protect the constitution from all enemies, foreign and domestic? Seems to me he kept that oath, at great personal risk and loss.

Why NASA's Budget "Victory" Is Anything But

koreanbabykilla Re:Neil DeGrasse Tyson says a 1% increase for mars (267 comments)

Not a huge Tyson fan, but saying methane was not mentioned is a lie. It was mentioned at least once when talking of the permafrost melting and the organic matter decomposing. He also didn't say climate was easy to predict, you just pulled that out of your ass. The dog thing worked great to help my kids understand the difference between climate and weather, just as it was intended to.

Prices vary on eBay, but i've paid anywhere from 5 to 45 dollars for them (Im REALLY hard on phones).

'Godfather of Ecstasy,' Chemist Sasha Shulgin Dies Aged 88

koreanbabykilla Re:It's just sad... (164 comments)


Phenethylamine /fnlmin/ (PEA), -phenethylamine, or phenylethylamine is an organic compound and a natural monoamine alkaloid, a trace amine, and also the name of a class of chemicals with many members well known for psychoactive drug and stimulant effects.[1] Phenylethylamine functions as a neuromodulator or neurotransmitter in the mammalian central nervous system.[2] It is biosynthesized from the amino acid phenylalanine by enzymatic decarboxylation. In addition to its presence in mammals, phenethylamine is found in many other organisms and foods, such as chocolate, especially after microbial fermentation. It is sold as a dietary supplement for purported mood and weight loss-related therapeutic benefits; however, orally ingested phenethylamine experiences extensive first-pass metabolism by monoamine oxidase B (MAO-B), which turns it into phenylacetic acid. This prevents significant concentrations from reaching the brain in low doses.[3][4]

The group of phenethylamine derivatives is referred to as the phenethylamines. Substituted phenethylamines, substituted amphetamines, and substituted methylenedioxyphenethylamines (MDxx) are a series of broad and diverse classes of compounds derived from phenethylamine that include stimulants, psychedelics, and entactogens, as well as anorectics, bronchodilators, decongestants, and antidepressants, among others.

Need some advice on VPN

koreanbabykilla koreanbabykilla writes  |  about a year ago

koreanbabykilla (305807) writes "I do lightweight IT support for a small shop of 2 dentists. I have firewalled the crap out of of everything. This is now causing an issue as the media server in a closet is now wanting to be used as a client to schedule appointments and such. I think it's a horrible idea to switch up the VLAN's so the wifi and the lan can communicate. I tried openvpn before here and the speed made it unacceptable. should i put the wifi back on the bridge or does anyone know of a VPN solution that would be accepable?
Understand this is for a friend for free so the "Hire a professional to do it" answers are not an answer.(I'm still expecting most answers to be this)
What VPN tech do you use when you need it to be responsive? Speed is important as the front desk girls hate a second or 2 of latency.
Also, dentrix(the dental software used) needs windows so windows software is required.
if anyone has tips for moving to opendental from dentrix, If i can get it working thats an option. They just moved to all digital X-rays so getting wifi clients working would be sweet.
I have the wifi and the wired on separate subnets now, How would you handle this?"
