Code Spaces Hosting Shutting Down After Attacker Deletes All Data

locotx Re:Facking Idiots (387 comments)

Well there is something wrong when people believe "the cloud" is the solution. It's a misinterpretation of a concept applied. I think the marketing push for "cloud" services being sold as a end all solution for backups, security and data storage gives off the feeling from the early 2000's where websites were being sold for all the things they could deliver, which they didn't. So to say it has nothing to do with "cloud based", I agree from the technical side, but i disagree from the "cloud" concept and marketing pitch side.

I will agree that management just needs "a reason" to get rid of you but you don't know about the situation to make a judgement like that.

Hackers Using Bots, Scripts To Lock Down Restaurant Reservations

locotx Re:Cold Pizza (214 comments)

Cold pizza was the best . . . not to mention the 12 pack of Dr. Pepper's that started out as cold but as the night progressed . . luke warm Dr. Peppers were acceptable. Bonus Points for Little Debbie snack cakes in the mix.

Two Weeks with the Wii

locotx Out of the Box Interface (458 comments)

I think Nintendo took a page from Sega. Sega had the cool fishing controller and if you ever played the bass fishing when the controller shook as the fish pulled you from side to side . .it was just a whole different experience. Then they came out with the Samba De Amigo which was a pretty cool maraca game. I know you are thinking, "maracas!??" Yes, it was one of the most entertaining games we ever had. It was a family game, it was fun and again ..a whole different experience. This is what the Wii is selling. A different way to interact. And you see that growing trend with that "heavy metal guitar" controller and some other ones . . like the dance pad . .etc...
