kv9 Re:Is C++ ever the right tool for the job? (509 comments)

you're assuming that everyone should run one bloated app at a time in a single user environment which has enough spare power. sadly, so do many other "programmers".

kv9 Re:Reminds me of a Star Trek: TNG episode... (154 comments)

where Dr. Crusher was commanding the Enterprise.

she wasn't commanding the Enterprise in that episode, just the research team testing that shield thing. she commanded her own ship in the last episode (future) and the Enterprise when she was in another dimension with everyone else dissapearing around her. more adept TNG nerds feel free to correct me.

Dungeon Siege III Being Developed by Obsidian

kv9 Re:Never played DS 1 or 2. Any opinions on them? (84 comments)

DS2 was not very good. They had removed even the thought of combat tactics. Now you just pointed and your people did their stuff in that general direction. You just watched your people swing and cast spells automatically, according to some AI script you couldn't touch. It felt like the game played itself but required you to keep clicking forward. Truly mindless and not worth touching.

wrong, the auto combat was disabled by default just because many people whined about it in DS1 and you had to go check some boxes to enable it. I enjoyed DS1 more, DS2 felt kinda arcadeish, but it was a bit more difficult and "pretty". liked it better on the second playthrough.

Google Go Capturing Developer Interest

kv9 Re:"many developers are so intrigued" (434 comments)

There's a reason why Java is the most popular platform and language for huge, cross platform enterprise software. And it does involve portability.

does it also involve buzzword loving astroturfers that use 'lol' in their arguments?

kv9 writes ""Security guru Stefan Esser launched the Month of PHP Bugs (MoPB) on Thursday, promising to release at least one bug every day for the month of March." SecurityFocus reports. "You should consider the Month of PHP Bugs a result report for just another audit we did on PHP," Esser stated on the site. "Unfortunately when you disclose security problems in someone else's code or in their bug handling process the developers often feel hurt or attacked." Esser released three flaws on March 1 to kick off the project."

kv9 writes ""NetBSD is an actively developed operating system. With fifty seven different system architectures in total and binary support of 53 architectures in our last official release (NetBSD 3.1), our widely portable Packages Collection "pkgsrc" and large userbase there is a lot going on within the project. In order to allow our users to follow the most important changes over the last few months, we provide a brief summary in these official status reports, released with irregular regularity. These reports are suitable for reproduction and publication in part or in whole as long as the source is clearly indicated." Highlights include the hackathons, Summer of Code 2006 projects, pkgsrcCon 2006, new ports and releases."

kv9 writes "IBM developerWorks takes a look at the strengths and portability of NetBSD. A bit light on the technical side, but it covers a lot of features and provides more links with useful information. FTA: <<NetBSD runs on more hardware platforms than any other UNIX® derivative due to smart design decisions and a commitment to portable code. Whether you're porting an operating system to a proprietary embedded system or looking for stability and compatibility across hardware platforms in the lab, NetBSD and its open license is a compelling alternative to Linux® and the GNU Public License (GPL).>>"
