Windows NT Turns 20

noh8rz9 Re:DLL nightmare (213 comments)

VMS=Virtual Memory System WNT=Windows New Technology

Your point?

the GP is being obtuse, but he's making a snarky comment that the letters in the acronym WNT are offset by one from the letters in the acronym VMS (V->W, etc). this is similar in vaguely tenuously stretch of a way to the novel (and movie) 2001 featuring the computer HAL. Wags at the time noted that HAL was a similar letter shift from IBM. That's it, nothing to see here, move along.

US Lawmakers Want Sanctions On Any Country Taking In Snowden

noh8rz9 Re:Naming Names (650 comments)

I'm starting to understand that choice at the end of Deus Ex where you're given the option to basically blow up the internet and plunge the world into darkness.

thanks for ruining the ending, ass hat!

TSA Orders Searches of Valet Parked Car At Airport

noh8rz9 Re:And the story is...? (453 comments)

you've really never heard of valet parking? like at a hotel or restaurant? that's pretty weird, dude. the appeal at the airport is you drive up to the terminal, grab your stuff, and somebody else parks it. no long term parking structure, no parking shuttle. appealing!

The City Where People Are Afraid To Breathe

noh8rz9 Re:hmm.. (243 comments)

California probably isn't the state to play that particular card in: their prison standards are so... exemplary... that they've been judged a violation of 8th-amendment prohibitions on cruel and unusual punishment.

then why are they so fucking expensive? state finances are in the shitter, but prison and teacher perks keep going up and up. public sector unions should be illegal. can you imagine if a steelworker's union bribed the CEO to give them a soft deal? everybody would go to prison. what a joke.

TSA Orders Searches of Valet Parked Car At Airport

noh8rz9 Re:And the story is...? (453 comments)

the AC's analogy fials because you could just as easily do such an act with just stopping yoru car at the airport. this whole thing is very violating because wehn you use a valet you trust that they won't mess with your stuff. if they can't do that the whole valet thing goes away. i disagree with harrier and that the problem isn't when they damage it, the damage is the breach of trust.

i would rather pay for none of it and set aside a quasi-autonomous area in mexico where we can leave the inmates to their own devices. let them buy their own air conditioned buses and make their own hospitals.

no, they're protected by the prison union which holds the state hostage, along with the teacher's union. i hope the state goes bankrupt so we can wipe their pensions off the books.

Hurricane Sandy a 1-in-700-Year Event Says NASA Study

noh8rz9 global warming (148 comments)

I think with global warming we'll find these "1 in 700" events occuring more regularly, and being more destructive. katrina, sandy, what next? the big dealio is that these are stronger than storms in the past, and overwhelm our defences that were built in a pre-global-warming world. we essentially need to go back to the drawing board and design defenses that protect us from global warming storms. face it... even if we stop CO2 emissions today (technically possible, but lacking political will), we'll feel the effects for the next 100 years. way to go industrial revolution through 1980, but suck to be us...

OS X Malware Demands $300 FBI Fine For Viewing, Distributing Porn

...aaand, it's fixed. Apple added the malware to its block list, which all computers update on an hourly basis. another strength of the apple platform, they can quickly shut down anything that gets through their protection net.

I use a screen protector ...

noh8rz9 Re:Until (194 comments)

whats the big whoop? i got a pack of them for like $5. the protector itself is scratched up a bit from being in the pocket with my keys. one could argue that the gorilla glass wouldn't get scratched up like this, but whatever... at any time i can switch out my screen protector no problem. also, doesn't affect usage at all, you wouldn't notice.

Bing challenges Google to a search deathmatch, "Bing it On!"

noh8rz9 noh8rz9 writes  |  more than 2 years ago

noh8rz9 (2716595) writes "It's on! everybody can put search engines to the test in the "pepsi challenge".

CNET says:
Microsoft is launching a new campaign in the U.S. today that it hopes will convince searchers accustomed to Googling that Binging is better.

  Microsoft's contention is that it has improved the relevancy of its search results over the past few years, but that due to old search habits, many people never even give Bing a try.

The "Bing It On Challenge," which is available at BingItOn.com, allows users to compare unbranded Web search results from Bing and Google side-by-side. For each of five search queries of a user's choosing, an online test will compare results from Bing and Google. Users can declare a winner or say it's a draw. Users can share their results via Facebook, Twitter and Google+."

This approach is a little unfair to both search engines, because their true strengths come from knowing your search preferences through search history, google+, or facebook. still, it's always refreshing to be reminded what the unfiltered internet looks like."
