Large Corporations Displacing Aging IT Workers With H-1B Visa Workers

mdm-adph Re:"Shortage" (617 comments)

The fact that those being handed industrial expertise are "foreign nationals" isn't important any more -- you're forgetting that many, many large companies doing this sort of outsourcing are all multinationals. They don't have national allegiances anymore.

Microsoft Finalizes Skype Acquisition

mdm-adph Re:Any good alternatives? (111 comments)

I think you'll find most mac users today are Intel ones, if Apple's numbers are trustworthy.

Microsoft Finalizes Skype Acquisition

mdm-adph Re:Any good alternatives? (111 comments)

If it's under 10 people (or over, as long as only 10 members need to speak out of the group, and the rest just listen) you can use Google Hangouts. Recently started using them for everything, and it's amazing just how well they work. You can broadcast the hangout so more than just the 10 initial members can listen in.

Vision Problems For Some Returning Astronauts

mdm-adph Re:Weightlessness is a Bitch (203 comments)

I was thinking more "flip a switch" artificial gravity than "big spinny ring" artificial gravity.

We'll get right on that -- do you want it before or after we make the FTL drive?

You're actually assuming that I would leave any default credentials in place in a router? :\

Google To Honor "Don't-Track-Me-Bro" Requests

mdm-adph Seriously, who cares? (129 comments)

I'm all about privacy -- I always turn off every checkbox about "anonymous results will be submitted," etc., etc., but even I know my router's SSID is public. I don't care what happens to those on the outside of my network. :\

Evangelical Scientists Debate Creation Story

mdm-adph Re:Science and Christianity can't mix... (1014 comments)

What you propose wouldn't work -- it doesn't make Christ a _necessity_. Believing absolutely in "The Fall" means you _have_ to believe in Christ, and, frankly, can be free to believe in a heaven solely comprised of members from your own religious group.

iPhone 4 Survives Fall From Skydiver's Pocket

mdm-adph Re:Fall off of a Harley (233 comments)

Either it was in a strong case, or the "busy road" was made of marshmallows, because that story reeks of bs. Or by "fine" you mean "was still working, but was cracked to hell and back." There's a reason why Apple made the back of the iPhone 4 glass -- it's so they have a fragile, yet easily replaceable part you have to buy from them when it inevitably breaks.

Congress Voting To Repeal Incandescent Bulb Ban

mdm-adph Re:Dangerous mercury vapor does not belong near ki (990 comments)

Don't know if this is a troll or not, but I'm pretty sure a tiny bit of mercury exposure one time, no matter what the form, is going to hurt anyone. The people who landed men on the moon probably played with mercury as children, many times. Einstein probably played with it. Many of us did the same.
