Ford Rolls the Dice With Breakthrough F-150 Aluminum Pickup Truck

mulvane Re:And I Will Stop Buying... (521 comments)

I'm just hoping they don't do this with 3/4 and 1 ton pickups and SUVs. I agree with you, I need a pickup to work and haul. Sure, Al can be used in some places to lighten load, but when you start looking at the frame, you are weakening the overall strength...Got, imagine grade 8 bolts made out of Al.

Bribe Devs To Improve Open Source Software

mulvane Bounty Source (109 comments)

How does this differ from Bounty Source? Bounty Source has been around for awhile now, is well maintained and already offers everything here. In some things, to much diversity is a bad thing and I see that here. You need to be able to meet up as many users with developers as possible for a system like this to work well.

Fox's attempt to block ad-skipping TV recorder Autohop fails

mulvane Re:Good (2 comments)

The better business model in this case is for them to charge more since they will lose the ad money... I think I would prefer to have to fast forward and pay the lower price.

Ask Slashdot: Rectifying Nerd Arrogance?

mulvane Re:I think that's all college students (823 comments)

I have forgotten more than you will ever learn! This will hold true unless you realize you know shit and seek to expound instead of hold what little you know over those who know less which becomes a slowly shrinking number unless you constantly phase out those who make you look like a dip shit in search of new people to troll.

What To Do With Those First Generation Photo Frames?

mulvane Re:Display information (146 comments)

Hacking doesn't HAVE to involve breaking open or doing something outside of the devices current limitations. A HACKER is someone who can also make new use of a device by further understanding its uses within its current limitations and adapt it to his/her need. Hacking is about understanding why things work and how you can make them work better for you also...

I've heard of the Wright Brothers and the things they were first to do. But really? I'm pretty sure they didn't build the first place. Depending on your religious or evolution beliefs, I'm sure some prior art can refute this claim.

How Do You Educate a Prodigy?

mulvane Re:Why fit in? (659 comments)

Making an art piece out of him doesn't seem to be the best use of him either. I'm sure some college art students would love to minimize his impact on society though.

USPS Losing Battle Against the E-mail Age

mulvane Re:Go to your PO... (734 comments)

To further this, people could sign up for 3 or 6 day delivery with 1 day delivery guaranteed with the option of local PO pickup offered. Then you could possibly quarter your drivers and keep an extra for guaranteed postage delivery in a set amount of days (like 3 day delivery).

USPS Losing Battle Against the E-mail Age

mulvane Re:Go to your PO... (734 comments)

The bill is due on its dude date even if you never get the bill to begin with. I've fought this battle before when I never received a bill. You are just supposed to remember to pay them. And with most things going paperless for billing anyway, its a moot point.

USPS Losing Battle Against the E-mail Age

mulvane Go to your PO... (734 comments)

I don't think we need 6 day delivery. I really don't think we need even 4 day delivery. Mon/Wed/Fri should be enough. There used to be a time in American history where people were expected to go to the local post office and check if they had mail. With USPS tracking, people could sign up to get mail waiting emails or voice mails. Then, if the mail was important enough, they could go and pick it up or wait for the next scheduled daily delivery. Would provide a vastly more efficient system in the long run I believe.

60% of AOL's Profits Come From Misinformed Customers

mulvane Re:My grandmother is one of them... (301 comments)

I had a problem with services such as AOL doing this bull.. It became easier to look at my monthly billing statement, find the things I WANTED to pay, and then cancel my debit card and get a new one. Really..It avoided a lot of hassle.
