Australian Electoral Commission Refuses To Release Vote Counting Source Code

litehacksaur111 Re:Hmmm, (112 comments)

I firmly believe that all electronic voting machines should have full source code released and receipts that should be printed and signed by the voter and placed in a box next to the machine in case of recounts or verification questions.

The Pentagon's $399 Billion Plane To Nowhere

litehacksaur111 Re:What difference now does it make? :) Sunk costs (364 comments)

Even if a drone crashes, it is okay because they are much cheaper and no lives are lost. Also who the hell wants to ban drones for foreign warfare. People only want to ban drones for domestic warfare and surveillance use.

The Pentagon's $399 Billion Plane To Nowhere

litehacksaur111 Re:What difference now does it make? :) Sunk costs (364 comments)

First of all, I think we all know that future warfare will be conducted with drones. You seem to be arguing to put money into a project that is completely USELESS. This is all about pork for Lockeed Martin.

House Majority Leader Defeated In Primary

litehacksaur111 Re:Democrats voted (932 comments)

I think if you compare the amount George Soros donates to the Koch Bros, you will see that the Koch Bros easily outspend by a 100:1. In fact the Bratt guy is an endowed chair at the university by the kato institute.

Intel Wants To Computerize Your Car

litehacksaur111 Re:Integrated Infotainment, why do I want it? (191 comments)

I think that Intel is just trying to jump on the internet of things (IoT), trillion sensors, and cloud computing bandwaggon.

WSJ Reports AT&T May Be Eying a $40B DirecTV Acquisition

litehacksaur111 Re:This is LESS worrying than Comcast (73 comments)

Please don't try and tell us that somehow the republicans are such saints in this. At least the democrats have tried to pass net-neutrality rules which would put an end to the content based discrimination nonsense.

Grading Software Fooled By Nonsense Essay Generator

litehacksaur111 most schools ignore sat essay (187 comments)

I though most schools don't even care about the essay. Also the elite schools nowadays prefer the ACT and SAT II subject tests to demonstrate real knowledge. The SAT is really a dumb test, especially with all the coaching resources available now.

CISPA 3.0: the Senate's New Bill As Bad As Ever

litehacksaur111 When will this end (132 comments)

I think it would be nice if congress went on recess forever instead of returning to enact shit like this.

Apple, Google Agree To Settle Lawsuit Alleging Hiring Conspiracy

litehacksaur111 Re:On the subject of collusion (108 comments)

Then why do professional athletes, physicians, pharmacists, lawyers, etc have unions or occupation specific associations. It seems that IT workers think they are too smart to join a union or they are so super concerned that 1 person might freeload off their contract, so they are ready to spite their face to save their nose.

Supreme Court Upholds Michigan's Ban On Affirmative Action In College Admissions

litehacksaur111 Re: Not really needed anymore. (410 comments)

I would bet that 90% of legacy admissions are for wealthy people like 4th generation Yale students who go yachting every weekend. 85% of african american students are 1st generation college students, so your point is invalid. And furthermore I don't understand how you can be against affirmative action but for legacy admissions. For the record, I am against both. But if you are against one and not the other than you are a hypocrite.

Skilled Manual Labor Critical To US STEM Dominance

litehacksaur111 Re:Mike Rowe (367 comments)

I once again ask where are all these openings for skilled professions. We have spent the past 20 years demeaning these professions. It seems that everyone on slashdot thinks that all welding/manual labor jobs are the same. This is a bit how management views all tech workers as the same. It is just code right??? The irony here is very strong. The same people bitching about how there is no shortage in IT are now claiming there is a shortage of manual labor jobs without knowing anything about them.

Supreme Court Upholds Michigan's Ban On Affirmative Action In College Admissions

litehacksaur111 Re:Not really needed anymore. (410 comments)

I agree with this and think the court did not go far enough. We should get rid of legacy admissions and just make it so that when applying all the school can see are the grades, test scores, and extra cirrcular activities. No information such as name, gender, race, socioeconomic status, etc should be provided.

Skilled Manual Labor Critical To US STEM Dominance

litehacksaur111 Re:Welders make 150k??? (367 comments)

Ok. I can say that professional baseball players make $20 million dollars. I think you are choosing the most elite of a profession and trying to use that as an average for the common entry level person. I stand by my comment that maybe 5% of welders are making 150k. The rest are not making anywhere near close.

Supreme Court Upholds Michigan's Ban On Affirmative Action In College Admissions

litehacksaur111 Re:well.. hold on (410 comments)

I agree with this decision and I think the supreme court should ban "legacy admissions" as well. I think college admissions should be done by creating a serial number for each student. The admissions officer should not be able to look at name, race, gender, etc and only look at grades, test scores, and extra cirricular activities.

litehacksaur111 Welders make 150k??? (367 comments)

Where the hell are welders making 150k??? Probably like 5% of welders make that much. Most of the manual labor jobs (electrician, plumber, HVAC) make like 60k with 10 years of experience. New people start around 30k.

Oklahoma Moves To Discourage Solar and Wind Power

Here in phoenix the plan I have with SRP charges me a $30 flat connection fee every month. $30 should be enough to cover line maintainance.

Oklahoma Moves To Discourage Solar and Wind Power

litehacksaur111 Re:did you read the post you replied to? Wrong pos (504 comments)

The utilities already charge a flat baseline connection fee. That should take care of all infrastructure and grid maintainance. If you want it your way then I say get rid of the flat connection fee.

Oklahoma Moves To Discourage Solar and Wind Power

litehacksaur111 Re:want to figure it out BEFORE most customers pay (504 comments)

Peak demand usually occurs between 11:00 and 2:00 pm. There is plenty of sunshine on rooftops at those times, so the panels are in fact generating power.
