Ask Slashdot: What Does Edward Snowden Deserve?

mrclisdue Re:It might be an unpopular opinion... (822 comments)

It's anecdotal, I admit, but I believe you're in the minority with that particular opinion, though I'm sure there are a few folks 'round the oval office and thereabouts who share your thoughts.

The irony may be that the USA is well on its way to disallowing either of us to express our opinions or thoughts, anywhere.

Ask Slashdot: Suggestions For a Simple Media Server?

mrclisdue Re:Raspberry PI (420 comments)

A proper copy of XBMC is probably what this guy needs.

+1

xbmc *is* all he needs. It'll do samba, sftp, nfs, upnp (ymmv, but at least one of those will work out of the box, smb/upnp)

Building a Better Bike Helmet Out of Paper

mrclisdue Re:Bike helmet? (317 comments)

If wearing a helmet makes any sense, why don't they wear them in Holland or Denmark?

I googled "countries that make the most sense", and neither Holland nor Denmark came up. Wiki was of no help.

I'm wondering where your premise that the Dutch and Danes make sense comes from?

I know this Danish lady, Ethla, and she makes pretty good sense, but she's agoraphobic, so she wouldn't ride a bicycle lest she cross paths with another human. She is very much the type to wear a helmet in a car, though. Perhaps with a full, tinted face shield, as well.

Another Dane I know owes me 25 bucks, and he drinks too much, and he rarely makes sense regardless.

I know a couple hundred Dutch folk, and very few of them make sense. Flying Dutchman is apt for 90% of them. And if you get a Frisian amongst them, and he starts yammering in his native tongue, well you'll quickly be rethinking the helmet thing.

Canada Quietly Offering Sanctuary To Data From the US

mrclisdue Re:You Know They'll Roll Over! (184 comments)

You know the Canadians will roll over on you, eh?

Please, sir (I say "sir", and I apologise if you are a "ma'am", ma'am), but on behalf of all Canadians, I urge you to consider that it is "politeness, pleasantries, civility, and common courtesy" that you misinterpret as "rolling over".

We simply rush to the front and open the door for you, sir/ma'am.

I hope I haven't offended you in any way, and I apologise for taking your time.

Thank you, and all the best, Godspeed.

mrclisdue Re:Doesn't seem that absurd (191 comments)

Have fun!

Hey, I had tons of fun already, just wading through your post, trying to decipher what you were attempting to elucidate, all the while navigating the typos like a mouse in a maze, hoping to be rewarded with a piece of cheese.

When all is said and done, I've decided to go hopping for a metrich sticker pric, and call it a day, but maybe not furlong.

Ask Slashdot: Best FLOSS iTunes Replacement In 2013?

mrclisdue Re:Foobar 2000 (317 comments)

Yet you're the one getting angry and name calling.

Excuse me?

...or you're not being truthful.

That would be *you*, in before:

blah, blah...cheers

my reply to you (no name calling or anger there)

to which *you* replied:

is that you are a liar.

So far, the score on the name-calling front is 2-0, in *your* favour. To which an AC (I'm thinkin' that you're thinkin' 'tis I) calls you a dick, which doesn't really stray from the truth, since you *are* up 2-0. to which you whimper:

Yet you're the one getting angry and name calling.
