Tesla Model S Has Hidden Ethernet Port, User Runs Firefox On the 17" Screen

nopainogain Re:Why Ubuntu?! (208 comments)

according to what the story said here, it wasnt a typical RJ45 where you look at it and perceive it to be ethernet at first glance. that's where my comment originated. Having worked in Network Engineering for a little over a decade, I know how to terminate cat5 and cat6 T568A and B so I mean if it looked like an RJ45, sure its easy but the way the story reads, it didnt sound like it was.

nopainogain Re:Why Ubuntu?! (208 comments)

I want to know how he matched up the pins and the baud rate. Screw that up on something like a car you're probably in for expensive repair and a real bad time at the car dealer---(example) yeah, i thought this thing was free internet so i connected something i designed on my own bench for it and plugged it in, now the car wont start.... I cant wait to see the data on how he did the whole thing.

US Forces Undertake Two African Raids, Capture Embassy Bombing Figure

... Why we support Al Qaeda in Syria. I am dreadfully bereft in reliable information. Can't trust the media. I don't have a conspiracy theory in my head but I strongly suspect what we were told lacks validity regarding 9-11, Syria, and the other recent military operations. Somewhere, it has to make sense that our government, not the left, not the right but the whole lot of them, wants to support these guys in Syria.

Boeing Turning Old F-16s Into Unmanned Drones

Those guys at Boeing learn to marry the technology in your car's traction control with the unmanned fighter jet. Picture Arnold Schwarzenegger in a pair of cheap sunglasses saying "it has begun".

as i've gotten older, ive gone from liberal, to conservative, to progressive and finally converting to "aware". they play this game where they pretend to work towards the interest of a subset of americans then they all do the same thing anyway. vote to make themselves and their friends richer. the dems, the reps, all of them.

yup, anyone who signed-on as an IT professional, even we no-coding-network-ops drones know... there's a document when you're hired that says if you create it, they own it.

nopainogain Re:Copyright is not about protecting an idea (356 comments)

Intellectual Property laws crack me up anyway. I mean does every single person who makes a green-light-bulb pay a royalty to the descendants of Edison? I strongly doubt it. It's one of those things that was introduced with the intentions of protecting creators on the surface but at the end of the day it just keeps the "important" people in "important positions".

Do you own an eye patch? yes or no Do you own a little raft with an outboard motor and an RPG? Do you believe the letter "R" is also a word? If you answered yes to any of the above, we found our violator.

Rim Playbook drives final nail in their own coffin

nopainogain nopainogain writes  |  more than 3 years ago

nopainogain (1091795) writes "Well, it seems that RIM, not content to die off in the presence of iPhones, iPads and Droids, has created an even more obsequious hunk of crap. The new Playbook offering, which industry fat-cat Verizon hasn't even confirmed they will offer, has no native email, and no cellular service opting for just wifi. But at least it's bigger than a 1988 Motorola right?"

Do resume upgrades work?

nopainogain nopainogain writes  |  more than 4 years ago

nopainogain (1091795) writes "I'm in IT operations with cisco and hints of security and linux and I get moderate hits on my resumes on the main job sites at a rate of about 3 a week. Most of the sites now offer paid-upgrading on a tiered platform like Gold service, Platinum service etc. I paid for one of these upgrades a couple months back when I started my current position. It didn't seem to generate any hits or increase in existing benchmarks. I know that when you pay for these upgrades, they (supposedly) typically move your resume headline to the top (or further up) search results used by employers but does this make a difference when it comes down to getting noticed to get hired?"
