I think this gentrification trouble speaks volumes about telecommuting. It seems not viable.

lebjoot Re:Never heard of them (65 comments)

Arc on, detector off, then on again after a while is worth a try no?

Many UAVs Vulnerable To Directed-Energy Weapons

lebjoot Re:UAV's vulnerable to directed-energy weapons? (153 comments)

[I can't recall the last time cops had to worry about crooks with HERF guns.]

As a target victim (knowingly since 2012, prob. before) of D.E.W., I sincerely hope people become more aware of the situation.
And this is just the tip of iceberg. Please read this: stopeg.com.

Tough the direct sound is nice :). Very clear sound directed to your brain. I think they use modulated microwave or ultrasound. Some times It seems like a volume button: too low: sounds, itches, heat. Too high, pain. Some times severe :/.

Edward Snowden Leaks Could Help Paedophiles Escape Police, Says UK Government

lebjoot may help some wrong, but also *many* inocents (510 comments)

They are right: the enlightenment provided by Mr. Snowden may help one or other wrong-doing, but that is nothing compared to the greater good to the humanity by letting innocent people know about whats really going on. Want to get depressed for aday or 2? http://www.stopeg.com/ . Sorry.

Firefox's Blocked-By-Default Java Isn't Going Down Well

lebjoot Re:Already considering uninstalling firefox (362 comments)

[So I clicked around, and finally accidentally clicked on the little red icon up in the menu bar. Success! Now it gave me an option to run it.]

That was a too small applet. If possible, web developers should resize it for 200x150 give/take . That way, firefox show a message instead of the applet, with a "click to play" button/link.

Famed ATM Hacker Barnaby Jack Dies Days Before Black Hat Conference

lebjoot gang stalking at work (110 comments)

My bet: gang stalking at work. Protip: if you become a target, it is almost impossible to scape. Been a survivor myself Im still recovering. See www.stopOS.info or my site seguidos.wordPress.com (brazil/portuguese for now, sorry). Snowden is *nothing* compared with gang Stalking. It is a world fenomenon. Wikipedia say we are just very worried people. I assure you is not paranoia, but it is designed to be very hard to proof. Been a science guy myself I would not believe if it wasnt happened to me. But it can be explained with science. Thats what Im researching right now :). Please mod this up. Please promote those sites, as many geeks are been monitored right know, as I was (slahsdot since 1998) will be hit and wont even know what happened.

What Does IQ Really Measure?

lebjoot Re:Terman and Hollingworth studies (488 comments)

Man, I wish I read this link before. Sometimes been more open minded is a chore. A nice way to deal it it is to play along the normal people: try do some sports like soccer, watch some stupid tv program (and talk, and laugh about it), do some easy tasks (clean the backyard), etc, dumb it down sometimes. Works for me. Have a nice day!

Kinect Self-Awareness Hack

lebjoot Re:This is horrid (82 comments)

Ok, this is not news but is not bad at all. It is well done. Have a script, good edition and nice effects. No, it is not easy to make quality stuff. Just watch many youtubers that just hold a trembling cam with one hand while mumbling something about the project. I wish the majority of videos on internet was this level.

Cassini has many human-like sensor instuments that make it like an algmented human:
http://saturn.jpl.nasa.gov/spacecraft/overview/

I like the radar, that can see montains , rivers, etc.
Exciting stuff.
Imagine that with a capacity of upload human brain, nano factories, and we can conker the galaxy. Although there is still a problem energy. Where do get the necessary energy when distant from a star?
