The Current State of Linux Video Editing

log0n Re:Tracktion is an awesome DAW (223 comments)

(fwiw, I've used Lightworks quite a bit. It's very similar to old school Final Cut Pro & Express circa ver4/5 (before they started iMovie-fying it))

Lightworks is a fantastic NLE.

It's almost as if the OP isn't really aware of how powerful the tools are on Linux. Or maybe isn't that much a power user..

Engineer Combines Xbox One, PS4 Into Epic 'PlayBox' Laptop

log0n Re:"Engineer" (78 comments)

This. The decryption keys are tied between console and drive at the factory (started w/ the 360 iirc, there's a lengthy process involving firmware dump you have to go through if you want to swap out a failing 360 dvd drive and have it still read game discs).

Not sure which but one of the console manufacturers used to spin their discs backwards.

Manga Images Depicting Children Lead to Conviction in UK

log0n Dangerous precedent (475 comments)

This is the same country that inspired 1984 and V For Vendetta, so it seems there's a long running propensity for criminal overreach.

ISIS Bans Math and Social Studies For Children

log0n Re:they will defeat themselves (981 comments)

No, AC is right. The degrees of US/ISIS ideologies 'wrongness' doesn't really matter, it's the fact that they are both rationalizing the acceptance of wrong. One will just have a much shorter time plummeting than the other.

Science can't hold a candle to someone who can't, or won't, appreciate critical thinking. Faith and religion beheads it.

Daniel Ellsberg: Snowden Would Not Get a Fair Trial – and Kerry Is Wrong

log0n Re:it's about having embarrassed the ruling class (519 comments)

"Until the American public stands up and demands"

I see this partial slogan bandied about all the time, that we only have ourselves to blame. How the fuck exactly do we stand up and demand? Most of us do already .. voting doesn't fix things. Peaceful protest doesn't fix things. Hell, the only real power we do have is w/ $, and that doesn't fix things. Snowden has done what few of us are capable of, mainly because we're peons, and it's still not fixing things.

"Until the American public stands up and demands" means the only real way things will happen will be through violence.

Why Lavabit Shut Down

log0n Re:Substitute "China" or "Soviet Russia" (304 comments)

Completely agree. I'll quote myself for no other reason than I just 90sec ago stated the same thing earlier and you completely encapsulated how I feel. I have a feeling that there are quite a lot of us like this.

"We expect it from China because they are [more or less] (not us, so therefore) a potential enemy, like Russia, like latest Islamatyrant, blah blah.

(going US centric) We were raised to believe that the US was better than what we're finding out it's doing. We were taught to believe we are a shining beacon of freedom, democracy, that our way is the best way - or at least it's the best way done so far - because look at all of the failings we see around us.. we take the moral highground making us better than the tyrants who do the stuff that we despise, etc.

There are a lot of Snowdens out there.. not necessarily in what power or knowledge we have, but that those of us that feel everything instilled in us about our nation's greatness is turning out to be complete bullshit."

Comcast Predicts Usage Cap Within 5 Years

log0n Re:Caps Are Definitely Coming (475 comments)

'It's basically an all-you-can-eat buffet and we're the fat guys. The sizzlers trying to narrow the front door so we can't get in.'

Who cares? That's the point of a buffet.

Comcast Predicts Usage Cap Within 5 Years

log0n Re:Editorial (475 comments)

Charging by usage is an invented pricing scheme pure and simple. It costs no more or less for Comcast to have data running over a line (not even the cost of electricity.. once it's on it's on). I can leave my TV on 24/7/365 (100% usage) and pay the exact same amount if I had left it off for an entire year. Hell, I could add 5 more TVs (each with their own box) and leave those on year round and it would still do nothing to my bill [outside of the boxes].

Also, the T3 comparison is nowhere near valid. Bandwidth costs close to nothing. With a T3 you're basically building your own infrastructure for that access, which is where the cost comes. Comcast already owns the infrastructure.
