Microsoft To Open Source .NET and Take It Cross-Platform

krups gusto Re:Sounds like what Sun did (525 comments)

I despise oracle as much as the next guy. But they really haven't done a bad job with java. Incremental improvements yes. But not bad improvements. And their databases are quite nice if you have money to waste.

It's just everything else they do other than java and databases that is horrible.

Mozilla Teases First Browser Dedicated To Devs

krups gusto Re: Different browsers (132 comments)

Why can't people just say "INTERNET EXPLODERER"?

"Browsers" *don't* do things differently in any meaningful way.  But the rectal juice that is "INTERNET EXPLODERER" does.

Just say it.

The Hobbit: the Battle of Five Armies Trailer Released

krups gusto Re:Not looking good (156 comments)

Copyrights don't expire anymore.  This is necessary so that great writers like Tolkien are incentivized to keep writing more books.  It also prevents anybody from making Mickey Mouse porn.

Steve Wozniak Endorses Lessig's Mayday Super PAC

krups gusto Re: Major source of corruption is Tax Code not PAC (209 comments)

A flat tax doesn't have to be regressive.  For example consider a flat 90% income tax, but the government pays for health/housing/food/education could be progressive.

Washington Redskins Stripped of Trademarks

krups gusto Re:Chicago Blackhawks too? (646 comments)

Horse shit.

If I randomly assign nicknames to people.  Truly random.  And your nickname happens to end up as "mother fucking ass pony with open herpes sores."  Is that a misunderstanding?  No because it was random.  And I had no ill intent since it was random.

But you're still stuck with an offensive nickname.

High Frequency Trading and Finance's Race To Irrelevance

krups gusto Re: Arbitrage (382 comments)

Obviously a percentage approach is stupid if the problem being solved is time based.  Per transaction fixed cost is the way to go if the goal is to discourage frequent trades.

Zazzle.com Thinks Depictions of Pi Are Protected Intellectual Property

krups gusto Re: damn (264 comments)

Efficiency is great until the other team is in power.  As such, I'm a fan of beauracracy.

Also, I've generally found that beauracrats have good intentions.  They just can't execute efficiently.

Ask Slashdot: Minimum Programming Competence In Order To Get a Job?

krups gusto Re: Ha, hot programming jobs (466 comments)

Developer wages suffer from a simple rule - you can't make more money than your boss.

And since every developer has 2+ bosses, the extra expense of a developer raise quickly gets out of hand.
