Texas Health Worker Tests Positive For Ebola

n3r0.m4dski11z Re:hubris (421 comments)

Wow, you either forgot to post as AC, or are from somewhere so racist that your racism seems casual enough to drop the N bomb into regular speech.

I wouldn't be surprised, but for the fact that you have a 3 digit UID.
I would assume that the badly behaving low UID's would have been weeded out a decade ago.

Not too much shocks me on the internet these days, but a slashdot "elder" being racist is like wow. I was given pause.
I dont really care what stupid point you were trying to make about different cultures. It's lost when you use derogatory language.

Crowdsourced Remake "The Empire Strikes Back Uncut" Now Complete

"I hate when a movie is entitled "$OriginalTitleHere Uncut". The first thing it makes me think of is uncircumcized penises."

Are you trying to blame the film industry for your homoerotic fantasies?

Lego Ends Shell Partnership Under Greenpeace Pressure

n3r0.m4dski11z Re:Fuck Greenpeace (252 comments)

I am no greenpeace fan, but a corporation putting a logo on a child's toy in order to influence their future purchasing decisions though brain washing, is kind of asking for whatever the fuck they get, don't you think?

Lego Ends Shell Partnership Under Greenpeace Pressure

n3r0.m4dski11z Re:Another corporation falls... (252 comments)

You might want to look up the purpose of the PR department. The corporation doesn't care, it has no feelings to hurt. Shareholders demand to err on the side of caution.

I would much prefer the citizens bully the corporations than the other way around!

Of course the best solution would be the government to step in and say "no advertising logos in any childrens toys", which is ultimately best for the children. The movie, tv and videogame industry all use fake products to tell their stories all the time. No reason why toys should have real corporate logos in them. Pure mind control of the youth and should be stopped.

Ask Slashdot: How Would You Build a Home Network To Fully Utilize Google Fiber?

n3r0.m4dski11z Re:Combine the 2 (279 comments)

"Go spend about an hour on youtube to see how to crimp RJ45 ends (it's actually easier than it sounds) and stick with the 568-b standard for all ends. Don't worry about crossover, straight through, etc. Every time I hear people try to be "smart" and talk about doing it "right" I kind of chuckle, and here's why: Part of the gigabit ethernet standard (that is, to receive IEEE 802.3 certification for gigabit) the switches AND the ethernet ports MUST provide the auto-MDIX feature, so fretting about crossover is pointless."

Are you saying here that 1) You don't punch both ends with the proper wiring (straight through) (you also seem to think it doesn't matter) and 2) that you are seriously suggesting wiring wallports to RJ-45 ends as opposed to a proper patch panel?

Boy no wonder you only charge $30 an hour! One gets what one pays for indeed!

Online Creeps Inspire a Dating App That Hides Women's Pictures

"Note to women: if you dated and then married a guy who is charming and able to approach a strange woman (you) with self-confidence, do you really have any right to complain when he continues to exhibit those characteristics after you are married?"

You keep using that word, I do not think it means what you think it means.

Slashdot Asks: What's In Your Home Datacenter?

n3r0.m4dski11z So much power waste (287 comments)

If you look closely at those pictures, in pretty much every rack there are redundant switches with absolutely nothing connected to them, yet they are powered on.

Really? Do you like the blinking lights? I measured my 24 port 3com superstack switch and it was 50 watts. I switched to a 8 port low power gigabit (i have 6 devices these days) and it runs at 8watts.

Calculating the cost savings of the switch, at .07 cents a kwh, 42w = cost per year savings of 25 dollars. Roughly the cost of the gigabit switch i replaced it with!

Report: Microsoft To Buy Minecraft Studio For $2bn+

n3r0.m4dski11z Re:Umm... WHY??? (368 comments)

"it is fairly apparent that Notch is not some genius game designer, he just had the right idea at the right time, and got lucky that it went viral. Minecraft was not some amazing feat of design, it was a digital lego game that struck a chord with people."

Have you even played the game for more than 5 minutes? it had more depth and FUN my first hour playing it than all the games in the last ten years of gaming combined! Plus, kids fucking LOVE it. Southpark was bang on with its observation that everyone under 16 (maybe 20 now?) has played it and enjoyed it. If he's not a "genius" in some sense, with millions of accounts (paying like $25 each), then what the fuck dude, who the hell is?
He had the right idea at the right time, just like every other inventor in history. Nothing "genius" or not "genius" about it. Minecraft is an amazingly deep and thoughtful game, that is still getting free updates years after its release!

He is actually quite humble in the interviews I have read about him such as this one:
http://www.newyorker.com/tech/...

Minecraft is THE cult game of the last 10 years. The spinoffs, youtube channels, mods, servers, real life products, halloween costumes, t shirts... the list goes on and on. Minecraft steve, a creeper or other characters are easily as recognizable as mario, or a disney character to children these days.

There is a TONNE of value with the minecraft brand. Missing that means you are not in touch with the youths! and you lose at your evaluation of the situation.

Russian Military Forces Have Now Invaded Ukraine

n3r0.m4dski11z Re:The Russian bear only understands force (848 comments)

" It would have been possible at the time for the US to get away with a preemptive nuclear strike against Russia. With most silos and mobile launchers on Russian territory located, a counterforce preemptive nuclear attack by the US would have resulted in the only real retaliation to be from submarine launches, which would have been few enough not to overwhelm missile defense."

Yes! And we could hide our best people in some of the countries deeper mineshafts! The radioactivity would never penetrate a mine some thousands of feet deep. And in a matter of weeks, sufficient improvements in dwelling space could easily be provided. Nuclear reactors could provide power almost indefinitely. Greenhouses could maintain plantlife. Animals could be bred and slaughtered. A quick survey would have to be made of all the available mine sites in the country. But I would guess... that ah, dwelling space for several hundred thousands of our people could easily be provided.

But I also think we should look at this from the military point of view. I mean, supposing the Russkies stashes away some big bomb, see. When they come out in a hundred years they could take over... In fact, they might even try an immediate sneak attack so they could take over our mineshaft space... I think it would be extremely naive of us, Mr. Prune, to imagine that these new developments are going to cause any change in Soviet expansionist policy. I mean, we must be... increasingly on the alert to prevent them from taking over other mineshaft space, in order to breed more prodigiously than we do, thus, knocking us out in superior numbers when we emerge! Mr. Prune, we must not allow... a mine shaft gap!

My most recent energy-saving bulbs last ...

n3r0.m4dski11z Re: 2 months, but they all quit! (278 comments)

"spread over two different physical houses"

Well maybe your richy rich multi millionaire bulbs last a long ass time, but the normal $2-5 per bulbs are garbage. I have to replace at least one every 6 months out of aprox 15 bulbs installed in my apt. My anecdote cancels out your anecdote!!! so there

I know many people as well who have the same problems. My building manager for instance who manages a 200 suite property. The building engineers at work who swap them out all the time. The balast generally goes and then the bulb is toast. Sometimes they go grey first in the tube, but most are heavily yellowed from heat damage. I like the energy savings, and lower heat, but old ass bulbs are far more reliable.

"I have tons of experience with indians"

Thats pretty racist to generalize so heavily one ethnic group across an entire industry.

"I hate saying that. I really do"

Your racism is not in any way a favour to society so like, I hope you understand that you don't have to be racist if you don't want to.

"Big corps are about 0.1% of the problem big governments are. Based on megadeaths in the 20th century."

Without predatory capitalistic corporations which -literally- feed their children on the human misery that is receiving healthcare in the us, america would have universal healthcare. Lobbyists. One of the reasons that the parent comment is right and that all the ills of governement are indeed caused by corporations! (paraphrasing what im sure he meant :P)

Without the internet or manuals, being able to figure systems out and use of correct tools in diagnosis and repair.

As a side note, Warren Buffett, one of the richest people in the world, was hosting an unpublicized charity benefit inside the high security Offutt military base at 8:00 a.m. With him were business leaders and several executives from the World Trade Center, including Anne Tatlock of Fiduciary Trust Co. International, who likely would have died had it not been for the meeting. [San Francisco Business Times, 2/1/02] They watched a lot of the television coverage that morning, but it's unknown if any of these people were still at Offutt by the time Bush arrived in the afternoon.

You can't have peace WHEN YOU GO AROUND KILLING AND MAKING WAR

you can't critize countries for having NUCLEAR WEAPONS when your own country HAS THE MOST NUCLEAR WEAPONS IN THE WORLD

you can't have ultimate "truth" when all you do is lie

you cant have love when all you believe in is hate and yes casual indeference IS hate

you cant have FREEDOM while some are still in chains

there IS NO SUCH THING AS GOOD AND EVIL it is a human creation, created by catholosism. they are blanket terms to hide actual reality. reality is the will to power.
