Microsoft's JavaScript Engine Gets Two-Tiered Compilation

master_kaos Re:Given that the mobile world has moved to apps.. (46 comments)

yeah I don't know what you are talking about. As I would say 99.9% of the internet ISN'T static web pages. I just did view source on this page, and 1/3 of the content is JS.

Microsoft's JavaScript Engine Gets Two-Tiered Compilation

master_kaos Re:That's great (46 comments)

maybe, but the unfortunate thing is real life doesn't work that way just because microsoft says so. We have customers still using XP (usually older people, or government employees) so unfortunately we have to still support ie6. So what we do is support our core apps for ie6 but any new features/new apps we only support ie9+

Apple Announces iPad Air 2, iPad mini 3, OS X Yosemite and More

master_kaos Re:iOS 8.1? Already? (354 comments)

well the release of ios 8.0.1 was a joke with the bugs, but 8.1 makes sense since the main reason for the release is to include apple pay (if it was just bug fixes would be 8.0.3)

If Your Cloud Vendor Goes Out of Business, Are You Ready?

master_kaos Re:AWS losing $2 billion a year? (150 comments)

yeah I would like to see that as well. I think if that is true, is because they are investing money into growing it instead of going for short term profits. They have added a lot over the last couple years.

If Your Cloud Vendor Goes Out of Business, Are You Ready?

master_kaos Re:What's the purpose. (150 comments)

scalable is the reason, also not having to manage your own hardware is also a bonus. We just don't have the time to run down to the colo office to replace a hard drive.
Our amazon bill is approx $180/month for about 6 servers (reserved pricing) no way we would be running hardware that cheap if we were doing it ourselves.

Password Security: Why the Horse Battery Staple Is Not Correct

master_kaos Re:symbols, caps, numbers (547 comments)

not only that, if you only visit the site once every 6 or 8 months or so, then you have to remember when you last used the site, and what was the phrase at that point in time (although this problem exists for any rotating password)

Pretty much the reason I use last pass, don't have to ever worry about it again.. yeah yeah 1 point of failure, whatever.

Password Security: Why the Horse Battery Staple Is Not Correct

master_kaos Re: symbols, caps, numbers (547 comments)

my one bank used to have a max password, and didn't allow any special characters either. Never understood why unless it was end up stored plain text in some mainframe fixed length field.

Ask Slashdot: Swift Or Objective-C As New iOS Developer's 1st Language?

master_kaos Re:Does Swift work on older iOS versions? (316 comments)

Oh yes I have been dealing with it, and it sucks, especially since we get 15% of the downloads compared to iOS. We dropped all applications from android except our flagship, and even then it is a couple versions behind our ios app, missing a ton of features.
Still develop for 2.1 and don't use any features that are newer than that

Simple Hack Enables VR Mode For Oculus Rift In Alien: Isolation

master_kaos The point? (57 comments)

SO if all it is is basically an ini hack, and it works flawlessly, what would be a reason that the developer would not have it enabled by default? (And I am assuming not to release DLC later since they left the code in the game)
If it was unstable, or sucked I could understand why.. but if they had it working I don't follow the logic.

Fuel Efficiency Numbers Overstate MPG More For Cars With Small Engines

master_kaos Re:Miles to empty can vary (403 comments)

Mine also shows kilometres until empty. The funny part is I know that I can drive 75km+ even though the readout says "0"
I have driven to and from work 3 full days with my yellow gas light on (20km each way) and still have at least 5 litres in the tank.

Diners Tend To Eat More If Their Companions Are Overweight

master_kaos Re:America = snowball (126 comments)

I just started a keto diet a month ago eating nothing but butter, steak, eggs, cheese, bacon, chicken, and green beans.. I am already down 20lbs (fair enough most of it water weight), and 2 belt notches tighter.

Yes I am morbidly obese, i have tried things in the past but my stomach was a bottomless pit. It was actually here on slashdot where I first heard about keto. I did more research, and this is the first time I have tried a diet where I am actually not fucking starving all the time. Tried pure calorie counting in the past but always was hungry.
Now after a normal sized meal of steak with a slab of butter on it, and steam greened beans with another slab of butter on that, it fills me up.
It is awesome that I can now eat awesome good foods, that are actually healthy (although not perceived healthy in normal society because OMG FAT AND CHOLESTEROL) 70% of my calories come from fat, 25% from protein, 5% from carbs (and most of carbs from natural occurring in vegetables).
