Ask Slashdot: Where Can You Get a Good 3-Button Mouse Today?

modmans2ndcoming Dangling ring finger? (429 comments)

My ring finger sits nicely on the side of the mouse. I have an LG gaming mouse though so maybe that is why it is comfortable.

modmans2ndcoming When they can just spend on 5G towers (201 comments)

Why roll out fiber to the curb when 5G will deal with high speed internet.

Republican Bill Aims To Thwart the FCC's Leaning Towards Title II

modmans2ndcoming Re:Getting around the court decision (182 comments)

You are an idiot that does not understand why Ma Bell was not innovative or what the court actually told the FCC when it over-turned the rules...you certainly do not understand the crap political game the ISPs have been playing with the FCC regarding when they do and do not want to be considered a common carrier.

Republican Bill Aims To Thwart the FCC's Leaning Towards Title II

modmans2ndcoming Re:Use that pen Mr. President! (182 comments)

EOs are completely legal and have been used since the creation of the union. Reagan used then, Bush I used them, Clinton used them, Bush II used them....name a president that did not use an Executive Order please.

Idiots.

US CTO Tries To Wean the White House Off Floppy Disks

modmans2ndcoming US Department of Information Technology (252 comments)

Or maybe just an agency under the supervision of a department....but both would require an act of congress. It is the only way to get authority under a CIO position that can affect the entire government through policy...Frankly it should be done from a security aspect alone.

Google Fiber's Latest FCC Filing: Comcast's Nightmare Come To Life

modmans2ndcoming Re: One fiber to rule them... (221 comments)

The fact that consumer ISPs are access providers means they will never meet the definition for free peering agreements. They are all consumption services. Asshats can't seem to get it that these companies are just trying to set up a two-sided market and that is the only reason any of this is an issue.

Google Fiber's Latest FCC Filing: Comcast's Nightmare Come To Life

modmans2ndcoming Re: One fiber to rule them... (221 comments)

No...Neither wanted a free peering agreement. BOTH were willing to PAY for the install of the hardware and the maintinance of that hardware in the Comcast Colo. Comcast said no. That is the fact.

Google Fiber's Latest FCC Filing: Comcast's Nightmare Come To Life

modmans2ndcoming Re:What rules prevent them from doing this already (221 comments)

Comcast has their cable monopoly that allows them to use the poles as part of the contact with the cities they are in. They use this as a means to prevent competition through graft and exclusive contracts...Title II would prevent cities from blocking right of way access to competition like Google.

Google Fiber's Latest FCC Filing: Comcast's Nightmare Come To Life

modmans2ndcoming Re: One fiber to rule them... (221 comments)

umm... No they aren't. Comcast and Verizon sent all the Netflix traffic through a single switch to their networks and held Netflix hostage for the deal that Verizon and Comcast wanted to make rather than allowing Netflix to just buy the equipment and pay for maintenance....Level 3 has had the same problems with Verizon and Comcast.

Google Fiber's Latest FCC Filing: Comcast's Nightmare Come To Life

modmans2ndcoming Re:One fiber to rule them... (221 comments)

Netflix already pays for access to the internet....The internet has never been a two-sided market where services have to pay for access to people that want to use them. Comcast et al is attempting to do that and that is what people are complaining about.

Ask Slashdot: Best Options For a Standalone Offline Printing Station?

modmans2ndcoming Two options (190 comments)

1) get a cloud print capable printer
2) set up a standard windows/Linux machine to run the cloud print service and publish a standard printer to that service....then you just share the printer to him (this is what I did)

Out With the Red-Light Cameras, In With the Speeding Cameras

modmans2ndcoming Re:Are they good? No. (335 comments)

you mean like on freeways where most people go over the limit and accidents are caused more by jackasses that drive erratically rather than people going with the flow of the traffic speed.

MIT Unifies Web Development In Single, Speedy New Language

modmans2ndcoming Re:The bigger question IMHO (194 comments)

The compiler could easily create a search engine friendly file that presents the page information for indexing and browsers are being presented with standard HTML so accessibility is not an issue.

Gains in productivity from development teams, middleware that will compile and publish all released code, the obvious benefits from compile time checking of variables, arrays, etc. will probably offset the loss of flexibility of the development channel.

modmans2ndcoming (929661) writes "This guy has written a very good step-by-step How-To on setting up Postfix to use gmail as a smarthost. Those of us who have an evil ISP blocking port 25 can have the goodness of a home e-mail server with out paying out the butt for traditional smart hosting. It is written for those who use Ubuntu. He also links to a guy who wrote a similar article for those who like to compile their software."
