Orion Capsule Safely Recovered, Complete With 12-Year-Old Computer Guts

murdocj Re:Herp a derp fast computers DEEERRRPPP (197 comments)

I built a wire-wrapped computer around an 1802. 2k of memory. Lots of fun. One advantage was that there was a chip that mapped the available memory to a video signal so it was very easy to get a TV display going. And it didn't require any particular clock frequency so you could actually single-step it very easily. I don't recall much about the instruction set, but I don't think it was particularly awful.

Celebrated Russian Hacker Now In Exile

murdocj Re:Snowden revenge? (130 comments)

Right. Let's compare running for president against Mr. Putin vs running against Obama. One of those cases makes you a politician. The other puts you in jail till you decide to give up.

murdocj Re:says Kim (117 comments)

Lying is also a time honored practice by (former) Internet CEOs. I wouldn't call Kim Dotcom "joe average".

Regin Malware In EU Attack Linked To US and British Intelligence Agencies

murdocj Re:How surprising (131 comments)

Right... there's no difference between Russia, where running against Putin gets you a lifetime jail sentence, and the USA, where running could actually get you elected.

Are you all in 8th grade?

Assange: Google Is Not What It Seems

murdocj Re:When you are inside the box ... (289 comments)

The parent is a joke, right? Just because the USA doesn't grant your every wish, it doesn't make it remotely as repressive as China, where posting something the authorities don't like causes by you and your post to disappear for "reeducation".

Former Department of Defense Chief Expects "30 Year War"

murdocj Re: And some say Obama isn't a Republican (425 comments)

I know... those Democrats, pushing their right wing agenda of freedom of choice, of women controlling their own bodies, when they should be trying to narrow the definition of torture.

Your both wrong the democrats and the republicans are exactly the same. They are just two sides of a authoritarian expansionist kleptocratic coin.

Only on slashdot could this be modded "insightful" and not "funny"

Grand Ayatollah Says High Speed Internet Is "Against Moral Standards"

murdocj Re:If the Grand Ayatollah's against it.... (542 comments)

Yes, it would be much better if the laws were constantly variable, so you had no idea what the rules were. Sort of like Russia. Where the only rule is "don't cross Putin" and everything else gets bent to that end.

murdocj Re:If the Grand Ayatollah's against it.... (542 comments)

they don't teach facts, they teach opinions.

They don't teach facts at law schools either, they teach legal opinions.

They try to teach you how to reason & argue & back up your opinion with facts. Which is a little different then saying "on page 392 of the holy book God himself said X, that's it, end of story".

Recount proves no fraud in NH Primary

murdocj murdocj writes  |  more than 6 years ago

murdocj (543661) writes "You can take off those tin foil hats, because the recount results of the NH Primary are in, and the hand count matches the machine count. Everyone can now move on the conspiracy around the Texas flying saucer.

In fact, only 40% of the vote was recounted (that's all the Dennis Kucinich was willing to pay for), but that 40% shows that the machine and hand counts match up nicely. As was pointed out when this "story" broke, areas that have machine counting tend to have different demographics than hand-counted areas, and thus a difference in voting patterns."
