nomessages Acronyms (920 comments)

I welcome the day the "Department of Homeland Security" and "National Security Agency" are renamed "Department of Homeland Science" and "National Science Agency." Oh well.

Game Endings Going Out of Style?

nomessages Re:Misrepresents history (190 comments)

Most likely a rhetorical question, but S.T.A.L.K.E.R.:SoC, Dead Space, Cryostasis, Half-Life, Morrowind, Max Payne 1+2,...

Firefox To Replace Menus With Office Ribbon

nomessages Change (1124 comments)

Interesting direction with the "ribbon" bar. I must be in the minority, because looking at the one mock-up I'm looking forward to this change. I hardly use anything in the menu bar, and it looks far more minimalistic which I like. I'm reminded of Chrome as well, which isn't too bad. I'm more concerned about certain add-ons though. Hmm.

James Murdoch Criticizes BBC For Providing "Free News"

nomessages Re:Threatening plurality? (703 comments)

I wouldn't be entirely sure of "nothing." At least TWC doubles as a mighty fine source of jazz if you're partial to that kind of music.

Solar Roadways Get DoT Funding

nomessages Think of the Applications (484 comments)

I read "glass surface" and the friction episode of The Magic Schoolbus comes to mind. Unfortunately, I don't think a real-life application of the complete lack of friction would help us all (or the children).

Rude Drivers Reduce Traffic Jams

...Funny. I'm pretty sure I reread his original post over before making sure I replied and yet I still misunderstood it. My bad. I need more tea.

nomessages Re:Since we're taking requests (882 comments)

No offense, but I believe you meant "higher center of gravity" and not lower. It'd be shameful if they had a LCG and were going slower!

Terminator Salvation Opens Well, Scientists Not Impressed

nomessages Re:the real thing... (344 comments)

It's both. "Cyberdyne Systems Series 800 Model 101 Version 2.4" is the full text that is shown on the HUD when Arnold is brought back online after Sarah and John derp around with his skull in Terminator 2.

Guitar Hero 5 To Allow Duplicate Instruments, Easy Switching

nomessages Re:Led Zeppelin said they weren't signing up, but. (43 comments)

I think this is honestly the first time I've seen someone else other than my friend who mentioned something off of the Division Bell. All other times I've read or heard someone talking about Pink Floyd, they only bring up the staple "Comfortably Numb" or "Hey You" from off The Wall, and DSotM in general. I've rarily come across any appreciation for their other albums, especially the Gilmour-era (Obscured by Clouds and Meddle is brilliant, but I personally hold Division Bell close). What a great way to go OT and to dust off the soap-box temporarily.

Windows 7 Beta Released To Public After Delay

nomessages Re:Can anyone enlighten me (848 comments)

You just need another partition formatted as primary/NTSF. After you've installed 7, the dual-booting should take care of itself. I've just now gotten around to trying x64 Vista/7(Soon after Vista) myself.

Windows 7 Beta Released To Public After Delay

nomessages Re:why (848 comments)

MSFT is (apparently) showing signs of wanting to genuinely wanting to improve their OS (Windows 7 seems to be going in the right direction) and make amends for the mess Vista has caused with everyone, regardless of what is was *exactly*. The point is, they're asking for another chance, and it'd only be fair if we gave them that chance. (obviously it's no good if it ends up like abused-spouse syndrome, but I can swear some of us like the abuse :P).
