5 Trillion Digits of Pi — a New World Record

mangaskahn Re:Pi Calculated to 5 trillion digits (299 comments)

I think you're a little high in your estimate. 3.1415926 is definitely less than 3.1416.

Google Releases Wi-Fi Sniffing Audit

mangaskahn Re:Much Ado About Nothing (198 comments)

I agree with much of what you say, but I think this is more akin to punishing someone being sprayed by an over aggressive perfume salesperson than taking a free sample. Taking a sample is a conscious action in which the sample is available and you actively take it and use it for your benefit. Google was driving through the area looking for open access points when some people said "Here, have all of this data we left in the clear and sprayed into the street for you. You wanted it, didn't you?"

RIAA Receives Stern Letter, Folds

mangaskahn Re:That's not what they'll win Congress with, no.. (382 comments)

I think that's really missing the point. What you are suggesting would be basically giving legitimacy to their method of "doing business" and at the same time admitting that you are doing something wrong. This is the death throes of an outdated business model. Whenever an entity becomes dependant on lawsuits for a mesurable percentage of its income, it no longer has anything to offer and either needs to adapt or die. *cough* *SCO* *cough*
