so you were being satirical of my truthful observations, yet you offer no basis to suggest they are generally not true.

you were being an idiot; i understood perfectly.

iPhone App In App Store Limbo Open Sourced

madddddddddd Re:Quibble - you mean "dynamic" code (432 comments)

actually no one meant dynamic code.... this isn't about interpreted code either... it is about TRANSLATED code. the briefs tool outputs a native iphone app source and that source is compiled in the iphone dev kit and run natively on the phone. the problem is the implementation of the translation layer does not provide the same level of optimization that a true natively coded app is exposed to.... and the maintainer of that layer might have an interest in making apple look bad, in which case they might make the translation layer more and more bloated creating apps that make the iphone look unresponsive.... apple is not willing to take that risk.

iPhone App In App Store Limbo Open Sourced

madddddddddd Re:Hey timothy... (432 comments)

the moderation system has failed.

in it's stated goal of minimizing demoralizing offtopic posts, it has created an incentive to create such posts to take the heat off other such posts. it doesn't give any 1 user more than a few mod points because 1 user shouldn't have too much power, but they do absolutely nothing to stop 1 PERSON from creating thousands of users and build up their moderation through automated self fulfilling "karma whoring". if 1 user shouldn't have too much power, then methods have to be put in place to require 1 PERSON per moderation enabled user. only problem with that is there is already legions of trollbots ready to whine about privacy so they can keep up their same games on this internet chat board.

slashdot = stagnated.

pathetic.

UVB-76 Explained

madddddddddd Re:Great Article (222 comments)

Posting anon, because I have better people than you to moderate right now.

why do you assume someone would question why you are posting anonymously? why would you preemptively provide an excuse? is it because you truly are a coward? is it because you don't want to undo the moderations you've obviously made in your campaign against Michael Kristopeit? is it because you are scared?

i believe you truly are a coward.

pathetic.

UVB-76 Explained

madddddddddd Re:Great Article (222 comments)

a words meaning does not change with altered capitalization... the only intent of capitalization is to aid an ill equipped reader. capitalisation is not a word. neither is Capitalisation. idiot.

so you're suggesting that in a 24 hour period, numerous posts over many weeks were just suddenly and randomly found to be needing down moderation... as you are obviously a member of the party contributing to the down-moderations, and further attempting to bait me with your hypocritical ignorance, i am forced to remind you:

you are NOTHING

DocBook 5

madddddddddd Re:DocBook - like HTML 1.0, only dumber (68 comments)

hey, idiot, i also said CMS... CONTENT MANAGEMENT. when you want to print, SOMETHING has to set the @media to "print".... THAT SOMETHING will alter the page layout and add the footnotes.

now let me know how docbook handles footnotes INSIDE OF footnotes? oh no, it can't you say? when are the docbook developers planning on adding it? they aren't you say? with a custom CMS, i can make that feature at my leisure. with docbook, you are just locked into a DIFFERENT way of doing things someone else's way.

DocBook 5

madddddddddd Re:DocBook - like HTML 1.0, only dumber (68 comments)

html does provide those elements... any element could be a citation element or index element... it is up to the CMS and CSS to organize them however the author wants. removing the authors decision making, and forcing them to use a framework full of elements they'll never use is not a step forward.

Why Software Patents Are a Joke — Literally

madddddddddd Re:Innovation has been replaced by litigation (311 comments)

at $25,000+ per submission, the only mockery was to the US workforce that lost out on a working man's salary every time corporate america decided they wanted to "mock" the government agency they have conceded controls them and their industry universally.

the USPTO is very discouraged, i'm sure.

Why Software Patents Are a Joke — Literally

madddddddddd Re:Innovation has been replaced by litigation (311 comments)

how exactly were they "making a mockery of the USPTO" when they quite literally conceded that the USPTO itself IS "THE game"

"yes, you have total control over me, and i serve powerless in your mercy... but you suck, and i have no suggestions about how you could be better." real big mockery.

Video Quality Matters Less If You Enjoy the Show

madddddddddd Re:PS/3 (366 comments)

what you are failing to consider is a medium where the listening environment could be altered by the media... approaching sensory limits implies a responsive, fully dynamic environment.

Video Quality Matters Less If You Enjoy the Show

madddddddddd Re:PS/3 (366 comments)

mine came with avatar... i haven't watched it yet... the title screen alone is entertainingly hypnotizing on my 120" screen + 1080p HD projector... i just let it loop.

i'm sure there is an inverse curve here where as the quality of the media approaches sensory limits, the contents of the media would approach irrelevancy.

RIM's Encryption 'Too Secure' For Indian Government's Taste

madddddddddd Re:When governments attack, only one thing matters (140 comments)

it is just as illegal to simply view encrypted data without attempting to decrypt it, or to view any packets whatsoever on public network where they weren't specifically addressed to you and you weren't given authorization... so your point was what again?

the RIM corporation was deeply embarrassed by their realized stance of cowardice... they attempted to silence my criticism and have since changed their stance and once again provide encrypted messaging services in some of the areas where they had previously decided to stop offering such services.

a terrorist's dollar is still a dollar to the shareholders.

Possible Issues With the P != NP Proof

madddddddddd Re:Proof that a proof can't exist? (147 comments)

well... in that case you would be proving that if the proof could exist something else must exist that can be proven to never exist if the proof could exist.

time is better spent on a O(log(n)) or better prime generating function
