You send the information needed to make them and robots to teach them.

If you've read the James P. Hogan novel about this at +1 to your geek cred.

If you can name it without googling +2

Is Analog the Fix For Cyber Terrorism?

mrmeval Challenge accepted (245 comments)

Digial, analog, trinary, HIKE! You won't safe them without MIKE!

In other words children it's all the humans who're messing up your security chain.

You need better, faster, stronger, smarter people who have a driving need to make your security better from the floor sweep to the ablative meat.

Without it you're just asking for an ass raping.

Psychologists: Internet Trolls Are Narcissistic, Psychopathic, and Sadistic

mrmeval Authenticate commentors with some physical media. (293 comments)

Like a letter and a phone call. They send you a self addressed stamped envelope. You send one half of the code via mail and call them with the other half.
Accounts deactivate at a regular interval and need a reactivation code gets mailed. I'm sure someone can game this but it slows them down.

Good Engineering Managers Just "Don't Exist"

mrmeval Those who can't do the job will rule the job. (312 comments)

Pournelle's Iron Law

I'm fairly sure that is a facet of that law. You have a less than stellar engineer who goes into management to cover his sins with real engineers flesh. They do tend to keep an organization alive. It would be helpful if there were a clandestine organization that assasinated upper level beurocrats in both government and quazi government entities but that's never going to happen.

I'd fill mine with cadaverine and mercaptan then put it near the desk of the woman that bathes and gargles in Emerude, cause she cooks up the bacon and brings it home like a man.

mrmeval You need to make a country. (330 comments)

If you want freedom you need to make a country. I'd suggest one in orbit. Then those countries that don't want to be smoking craters will leave you the hell alone. Then colonize the moon.

Ask Slashdot: How Do You Convince an ISP To Bury Cable In Your Neighborhood?

mrmeval Re:The basics... (324 comments)

Option 1) Use your vast political machine to convince congress to once again smash the HOA's in the mouth and allow it.
Option 2) You kill enough people in your community they vote to allow it
      a)or vote to pay for the underground wires
      b) or the remaining bleaters all leave and you ARE the
              HOA and you can do what you want.
Option 3) You destroy the local telecom and plunder all of it's accounts of cold hard cash, launder it and use that to take over their infrastructure.
Option 4) Move.

All of them are expensive, some are more expensive than others. If you pick the most expensive and cruel congratulations Bezos has job for you.

Slashdot is beginning to suck, this is the end

mrmeval mrmeval writes  |  about a year ago

Fuck you. Reviling people who complain is exceptionally execrable, posting private emails as a means of chuckles means you do not deserve the protections of civilized discourse. Feed off the shit eating cretins who think that what I have is theres if they can convince a more powerful force to take it from me.
