Single Group Dominates Second Round of Anti Net-Neutrality Comment Submissions

l0n3s0m3phr34k Re:I'd expect Fawkes masks to start making stateme (183 comments)

the Koch Brothers are the second-highest donors that are listed to my Oklahoma GOP Representatives, and that's only recorded in the non obfuscated PACs. I feel like I live in an American version of the Taliban's world...especially with the recent Hobby Lobby "my corp has a soul and it was SAVED BY JEEESSUUS" ruling. Thus why I'm trying to get transferred by my current job to another state lol.

probably because we've had to "bail out" said allies TWICE in 100 years now. When our "allies" spend more on their military they have this tendency to start World Wars. At least we only invade small countries and don't take the entire planet into war with us. GERMANY I'M TALKING TO YOU lol. See Germany, isn't it easier to win an economic war and rule the EU via the Central Bank? Far less bloodshed that way, and you still get to control Greece!

the only thing that would have helped Fukushima was to not build it there and to have used better construction materials. It does appear that the construction was influenced by severe cronyism and resulted in sub-par materials though.

I use this logical fallacy poster all the time, it has "black or white" listed as "presenting two alternative states as the only possibilities, when in fact more possibilities exist." I really enjoy using it on Fox "News" supporters, quickly pointing out the light of fallacies after every Bill O'reilly show. That man is the MASTER of logical fallacies.

Top Five Theaters Won't Show "The Interview" Sony Cancels Release

l0n3s0m3phr34k Re:What happened to (570 comments)

Better idea: Sony should hire a black hat team to hack into NK's infrustructure (if that's even possible LOL) and forciebly display "The Interview" on as many screens as possible on the 25th. NK only has four TV stations; couldn't be too hard to get into one of them and make it "The Best Christmas Ever"

Top Five Theaters Won't Show "The Interview" Sony Cancels Release

l0n3s0m3phr34k Re:If you really want to take away the GOPs power. (570 comments)

From what I've seen they DID release the other films, but not "The Interview". And I'm assuming any actual torrents of said movie will have something nasty in it; at least that's what I'd do lol.

l0n3s0m3phr34k Re:Boycott (570 comments)

Maybe everyone who believes in freedom and also has the facilities should torrent the movie and show it in small groups across the planet in December. Or at least have it looping on a TV somewhere in their house on the 25th lol

Top Five Theaters Won't Show "The Interview" Sony Cancels Release

l0n3s0m3phr34k Re:There is a difference. (570 comments)

I was thinking the same thing. And the MO here is an "electronic attack" anyway, it's not like NK has been able to do much of any phyisical force projection outside of their own little corner. The "real threat" is that Sony will have even more internal documents leaked, and MAYBE AMC, Cinemark, etc could eventually get hacked too?

Seriously, what would the GOP (Guardians of Peace, not the Republicans lol) do? Fly over into the US and set fire to 5000+ theaters? Attack the US's critical cyber infrastructure and start WWIII over a Seth Rogan movie? Even though that would be the FUNNIEST reason ever to destroy humanity (they could film it and call it "This REALLY is The End, PS we're sorry!" lol), there's little the GOP can do outside of what they've already done.

Maybe if Sony didn't have unencrypted Excel and Word docs all over the place in their HR department and used an end-to-end encrypted HR solution like most other corps use this wouldn't happen. Maybe close off the $C, implement some vlans and VPNs... you know, catch up 10-15 years with the rest of the planet and it might make this a bit more difficult. Personally I don't blame the GOP...I blame Sony for having circa-1992 coffee shop security.

Displaced IT Workers Being Silenced

l0n3s0m3phr34k Re: H1-B debate? (398 comments)

sounds good, whatever way is the most efficient! The original source of the law probably links back to some pre-Colonial English law in favor of the East Indian Tea Company or something ridiculous and ancient that in no way is REALLY related to the modern IT job market

Ask Slashdot: IT Career Path After 35?

l0n3s0m3phr34k Re:Missing the point a bit? (376 comments)

It's a very large strategy, and "know the enemy" (or competition) IS part of marketing, and also is part of marketing yourself. And I only "play up" things I've done recently, so yeah.

The person asking hasn't had a stroke though, or any major medical problems like you listed (that he mentioned, I dunno). So, while all that is theoretically true, that only applies to very specific situations. My advice is mostly situationally agnostic. If the submitter is someone who needs help dressing themselves then this forum and all of it's knowledge is of little use as their probably no longer seeking an IT job!

I know your statement has some logical fallacy in it, something about overtly-specific improbable situations being used to shoot down a far more "general" idea, but I'm too lazy to look it up at the moment.

Obama Offers Funding For 50,000 Police Body Cameras

l0n3s0m3phr34k Re:Ok the simple math. (262 comments)

h.264 is not the best compression format. It has many highly useful features for videos, yet 32gb for eight hours should be able to be "adjusted down" using a different codex if you don't need Blueray-quality videos (which is what that is at 720). I'd be surprised if such a "hitech" camera wouldn't allow you do dial it down to 480, which would double the 8hr. As for battery life...well, that's an entirely different subject lol.

Obama Offers Funding For 50,000 Police Body Cameras

l0n3s0m3phr34k Re:Carrot and shtick? (262 comments)

After I read Wilson's testimony, I agree. When he got shot, stumbled a bit off, then turned around and started running at him that must have been his bodies "last ditch adrenaline survival dump". What REALLY got me was how often Wilson's fire arm malfunctioned, like 3-4 times. And he had no flashlight, mace, etc within reach in his car either. So, broken gun and no equipment? Ever law enforcement vehicle I've ever seen has that HUGE flashlight right there locked into a recharger. I almost think he might have shot him so many times from fear of his gun continuing to malfunction.

IsoHunt Unofficially Resurrects the Pirate Bay

l0n3s0m3phr34k Good start, but..EZTV! (112 comments)

EZTV is such an amazing site, it made keeping up with TV shows from all over the planet so easy. Far easier than any cable system, I use the fact of BBC 2-4, Sky, CBC, etc being completely unavailable to my cable market as a huge reason I don't want it. Their simple listing, single line sorted by seeding time, is pure genius. Only one torrent or maybe two for HD shows...I've been scrambling trying to put a spreadsheet together, trying to look up all the various channels EZTV had to find schedules in four different countries. And even that misses out on all the one-off documentaries...

Does anyone know of a site with listings like that? epguides.com has some grids, but is still lacking.

l0n3s0m3phr34k Re:42 years old here.. (376 comments)

I call it Holistic IT Support instead of jack-of-all-trades, after the idea of Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency. Eventually you get enough experience you can quickly see various interconnections that others don't, in "unrelated areas" than most don't realize might be affected. HITS also takes into account the user's reactions and ways of working...even the BEST app will be worthless if the end users hate it.

Technically I'm work $3,694,362.43 in my weight in gold, or $3,750,706.09 in platinum. Honestly I really want to be paid my weight in lutetium, which would be around $32,386,360.

Obama "expects" FCC to rule for one-lane Net Neutrality

l0n3s0m3phr34k l0n3s0m3phr34k writes  |  about 2 months ago

l0n3s0m3phr34k (2613107) writes "Obama said he opposes paid prioritization of Internet service, and has told Tom Wheeler so. He continued: "My appointee, [FCC Chairman] Tom Wheeler, knows my position. I can't now, that he's there, I can't just call him up and tell him exactly what to do. But what I've been clear about, what the White House has been clear about is that we expect whatever final rules to emerge to make sure that we're not creating two or three or four tiers of Internet. That ends up being a big priority of mine.""
