What It Took For SpaceX To Become a Serious Space Company

l0n3s0m3phr34k Re:Blah blah Elon call me when (90 comments)

yeah, I was "mostly" sarcastic. Honestly, Elon is doing an amazing job. And seeing pics of the line of in-production Dragon capsules, rockets, etc...what he's doing now is just the very beginning. One pic had at least 10 capsules in different build stages.

What It Took For SpaceX To Become a Serious Space Company

l0n3s0m3phr34k Blah blah Elon call me when (90 comments)

When SpaceX is launching prefabbed Bigelow habs every day, THEN their a serious space industry. When the alignment of mass production finally hits the space age and we're launching more habs than we can fill with people...

32 Cities Want To Challenge Big Telecom, Build Their Own Gigabit Networks

l0n3s0m3phr34k Ponca City? (173 comments)

At first look this "small" city in Oklahoma is strange, yet with the local of a Google datacenter, seems perhaps the cities leaders see the future of what could be? I'm from Tulsa, and our "highspeed" (at least where I live) is a joke. I'm locked into a semi-illegal "exclusive contract" my apartment complex has with AT&T so nothing other than DSL at a 2.4MB max. But even if my city suddenly "jumped" on this, I still wouldn't see any results at my place for 10-15 years if that.

We could, of course, utilize our flood control pathways to install high-strength water-proofed fiber optics all over the city within a few years. Tulsa's flood control system spreads into every area of the city, and a fiber optic system that mimics the natural flow might add an interesting experiment too. We're far too busy tearing our roads up though to bother with anything hi-tech. Every single semi-major street is torn up or at least has construction road signs causing traffic jams; since the 1980's the construction barrel industry has made millions off us taxpayers.

Florida Supreme Court: Police Can't Grab Cell Tower Data Without a Warrant

l0n3s0m3phr34k Re:Criminals who carry tracking devices... (113 comments)

Or just do what most "criminals" I "know" do, and have multiple phones. A drawer full of cheap burners, and then your main phone with a SIM. People trade phones for "stuff" too, so having several GSM phones in a drawer is not uncommon lol.

l0n3s0m3phr34k Re:Responsibility yes, automatic liability no (323 comments)

it wasn't just a "post", it was a whole fake profile complete with racial comments, sexual perversions, morphed photos, etc. Really it's identity theft and libel.

Court Rules Parents May Be Liable For What Their Kids Post On Facebook

l0n3s0m3phr34k Re:Why not? When you have kids.. (323 comments)

In this particular issue, the kids who posted this page had already been suspended for a few days, the school and the parents all knew about this FB page for 11 months! It would be one thing if the page had only been up a little while, and no one knew about it. But it was up for almost a whole year AFTER the whole incident had come out in public. The page was identity theft, making the "user" look like a slut, very racist, made her look "fat" via some app. The school gave the kids two days in-school suspension, but refused to tell the victim's parents who it was even though they knew. 11 months where two sets of parents AND the school administration knew what was happening but just...ignored it? Why the perp's parents didn't force them to take it down either means the parents endorsed the page or their SO absent that, even though their kids got in trouble for a FB page, didn't care enough to do anything about it for almost a whole year.

Early Childhood Neglect Associated With Altered Brain Structure, ADHD

I think it's partially because their mirror neural network never got properly "set up" . Mirror neurons are VERY important to being able to properly react and socialize...

so melting permafrost and out gassing of methane from both the land and near the coast are normal? Please point me to the papers you have read that say this is a normal, reoccurring phenomenon that we should just ignore.

The Subtle Developer Exodus From the Mac App Store

erll...you still might strike it rich on an app; however the chances of porn calling out to a bunch of hot chicks like a siren's call is probably impossible lol. Unless you've already made millions off your app of course!

The Subtle Developer Exodus From the Mac App Store

l0n3s0m3phr34k Re:Ob (229 comments)

I don't know how often Apple lets you change your price, but price-point is also an important part of marketing. If it's not selling, change the price. With Apple, even raising the price might have led to more sales from people's ideas of more-expensive=better supported. In the non-digital world, price-points are often found via coupons and such, so a company can put out a bunch of coupons in different areas to see what price gets the best sales then settle on that as it's "normal price". With apps though, I'm not sure how this would be implemented.

l0n3s0m3phr34k Re:Ob (229 comments)

They do quite a bit of marketing. It's just not "traditional", remember their "scandal" in showing different "mood" posts? That's marketing. Zuckerburg snagged someone else's app and he DID market it, just via "word of mouth" instead of normal media.

Companies Genetically Engineer Spider Silk

l0n3s0m3phr34k Re:Does anybody here watch/follow Frankenstein M.D (82 comments)

yeah, people who only know bullet damage from TV can't comprehend the impact trauma to the underlying muscles. Even with a "bullet proof vest" without the impact plate your looking at a horrid bruise, big enough caliber might still kill you. Even with the plate it can still bruise to the point of making movement quite painful and unsteady. Oh, and it takes at least a few weeks to recover back to 100% even without actual penetration.

Companies Genetically Engineer Spider Silk

l0n3s0m3phr34k Still working on it (82 comments)

I remember the spider silk goats from years ago. The last I heard was they had a small breakthrough in the spindle (underwater), yet hadn't yet scaled it up much. They said they where working with the FDA for muscle ligament replacements and such. I'm still waiting for my spider silk goat grappling rope.

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

l0n3s0m3phr34k l0n3s0m3phr34k writes  |  about two weeks 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.""
