What a Black Box Data Dump Looks Like

muckdog Re:Advice (643 comments)

Can you sight the law that says this is illegal? I've never heard of a federal law and my state doesn't require seatbelt use for adults.

BitCoin, the Most Dangerous Project Ever?

muckdog Re:Tabloid trash (858 comments)

Its not that they human body needs silver like it does iron or copper, its because silver is a natural antiseptic. Silver kills bacteria. It was a good property in silverware. Some of the best water filters are made out of silver impregnated ceramic. Silver does promote health but, only in the same way that antibiotics, rubbing alcohol or hydrogen peroxide does.

Would I also be banned if my screen name was heterosexual-bob? If so, its fair. If not then they are homophobic.

Seagate does not own Western Digital. You are likely thinking of Maxtor.

New Law Will Require Camera Phones To "Click"

muckdog BART cops will get to kill more people (1235 comments)

Seeing how the BART cops were trying to confiscate cell phone cameras of onlookers that took pictures of BART cop Johannes Mehserle murdering Oscar Grant who was handcuffed on the ground. If those people with cell phone cameras were not there Johannes Mehserle would not be getting charged with murder. The thin blue line would be covering up the murder and claim that Oscar Grant was resisting arrest. As far as I am concern all of the cops that were confiscating phones should also be tried for accessory to murder after the fact. Right now cameras used by citizens seem to be the only effective means of stopping police brutality. Legislating that phones click will have a chilling effect on citizens exposing police brutality. Perverts will just use a normal camera or old cell phone to do what they want to do.

If I'm not mistaken EVGA farms out there motherboards to Foxconn who historically has had a bad rep and doesn't bother supporting linux. Buyer beware.

Good Open Source, Multi-Platform, Secure IM Client?

muckdog jabber (308 comments)

I'm betting www.jabber.org will be echoed over and over in the responses. Considering Google uses it to power Gtalk I say its scalable.
