Thanks for the idea. I have a similar problem and I've been debating whether to buy a new bed. This is a much better.

Emergency Dispatcher Fired For Facebook Drug Joke

lordharsha Re:Picked the wrong week to stop sniffing glue... (631 comments)

Speaking of mafia, are the brave men and women of the Police and Fire Department prohibited from playing Mafia Wars since, in their own words, it "is blatantly inconsistent with the mission of the Police Department that employs her."

And another thing, do they need to report which of their friends do play the game to the City Overlords too? Hell, are they fired for cultivating personal friendships with possible mafia members?

But... but... splitting oxygen from water leaves you with hydrogen, which is the same as splitting hydrogen from water.

UK Court Order Served Over Twitter, To Anonymous User Posing As Another

lordharsha something just doesn't make sense (205 comments)

Um, 2 things:
1. If he's posting anonymously, how is he using a name (I've quite possibly missed something, being as it is that I don't use twitter)?
2. More importantly, what if said anonymous person has the same name as Donal Blaney?

EMI Only Selling CDs To Mega-Chains From Now On

lordharsha sneaky business (334 comments)

EMI probably read this, figured something had to be done to get rid of piracy, and decided to hamper their sales. This way when the next study is conducted, they can blame piracy.

Before someone points it out, this is supposed to be funny. I might be overly paranoid, I might hate them greedy buggers, and a little conspiracy theory does the soul good, but this is probably just corporate stupidity. Been seeing a lot of it lately.

China Bans Games That "Glorify Gangsters' Lives"

lordharsha Bullies in the playground (172 comments)

*sigh* Gorram governments.

When I was a kid, politics was this big boring thing that all the grown ups with moustaches and beards went on and on about.

Now that I'm older, it's a hell of a lot more like a pissing contest, with each country trying to introduce more asinine laws and control each and every moment of their citizens lives. Hell, it's almost like a black comedy.

I'd laugh at the whole thing, but some of the shit that the governments of the world do in our name really scare me. Eventually enough people are going to come to their senses and fight back.

That's it for my rant. Mod me up, mod me down, ignore me, but I felt I had to get my 2c in.

Microsoft and Yahoo Reach Deal

lordharsha Google in trouble? (301 comments)

Cobbling together 2 inferior technologies doesn't give you a superior one. I don't really think Google has anything to worry about. Kindly take your rabble rousing elsewhere.

Transparent Aluminum Is "New State of Matter"

lordharsha Re:This is a great breakthrough... (406 comments)

The bombardment that makes it transparent only lasts for fractions of a nanosecond before the foil is comlpetely destroyed.

Hell, I could probably get similar results with a handful of C4

Do you honestly think that the government reads /.? If they did, they'd have destroyed the planet three times over what with some of the ideas that get tossed around here.

Terabit ethernet, govt filter, dialup speeds
