Help Me Get My Math Back?

mcpkaaos Re:If you can't handle calculus, science isnt for (467 comments)

I have nothing to add but to say that you are all sorts of awesome in my book. My story is similar: sharp cookie, dropped out of high school to pursue women then eventually programming (aha, there was my mistake), blah blah, now I'm in my mid-30s finishing a math degree. Couldn't be happier. People like you inspire people like me.

First Anti-Cancer Nanoparticle Trial On Humans a Success

mcpkaaos Re:Targetting (260 comments)

Fucking Slashdot 2.0 threading. I had no idea there were no less than four other responses before posting my own. ;\ Sigh, I miss Slashdot, because whatever this is it sure as hell isn't it. :p

mcpkaaos Re:Targetting (260 comments)

Don't fall into the trap (and then drag clueless yet for some reason pedantic mods with you). Effect can be a verb and affect can be a noun. Look them both up.

The Death of the US-Mexico Virtual Fence

mcpkaaos Re:$1.4 Billion (467 comments)

It's truly a testament to the demise of Slashdot that you were modded to -1. You speak the truth.

Disgruntled Ex-Employee Remotely Disables 100 Cars

mcpkaaos Re:I don't understand (384 comments)

>Its statistics.

No, it's just arithmetic. Stats is concerned with how likely and how often defaults may occur, not the overall gain or loss as a result.

>Perhaps because you aren't very bright?

Don't be a dick unless you are absolutely sure you are right. Even then, don't be a dick.

India Moves To Put Its First Man In Space By 2016

mcpkaaos Re:Normal service will resume shortly (242 comments)

There wasn't modern industry, but there was economy. So your second point is as dribblingly retarded as your first.

Your post just demonstrates that you don't know much about economics, so I'd lay off the insults.

Visual Studio 2010 Forces Tab Indenting

mcpkaaos Re:This is news at any level how? (390 comments)

The only problem in not having tabs is that it's an extra 2 keystrokes per line to //-comment out a block of code.

Tools->Options->Keyboard:

* In the "Show commands containing" find Edit.CommentSelection.
* Bind that command to something like Ctrl+/.
* Assign, OK
* Move caret to line you want to comment.
* Hit Ctrl+/.
* Enjoy life in a world cluttered by one less line of code.

This works whether you select a line or just move the caret to that line. It also works with several lines at a time.

Failed Games That Damaged Or Killed Their Companies

mcpkaaos Hellgate: London (397 comments)

Was the game really a failure or just the way the company ran it into the ground? I rather enjoyed that game (though I only ever played the single player campaign).

If you're really worried about it, you're going to have to bow to the REAL intention of the "think of the children" lobby: Stop consuming porn.

Hah. Ha ha. Hahahaha. HAHAHAHAHAHAAH. No.

i think a lot of cultures actively endorse masturbation

I'd just like to take this opportunity to say that I actively endorse masturbation, in moderation.

A Galaxy-Sized Observatory For Gravitational Waves

mcpkaaos Re:I don't get it. (190 comments)

He's 15 years old. It's much easier for him to understand and critique something that has been summed up than to spend the time and critical thought necessary to understand our present economy. Let's give the little bastard^Wwhippersnapper a break, he's trying.

Heart Monitors In Middle School Gym Class?

mcpkaaos Re:Holy ? (950 comments)

Actually no, I don't. I was recalling from my own experiences from when I was a kid and since. I stand corrected! Thanks for setting me straight. :)

Congress Mulls Research Into a Vehicle Mileage Tax

mcpkaaos Re:toposhaba (792 comments)

You've obviously never lived in Portland. Gresham doesn't count. As much fun as it is to say, Beaverton doesn't count, either. Portland is probably the least violent city I have seen and I've lived all up and down the west coast.

Disclaimer: I grew up in Portland, and I own a bike.

How does the school know the name of the kid's doctor? I have never seen that question on an emergency contact form.
