On the Bin Laden raid, BULLSHIT!!!! He was worried that the attempt would fail and look bad on him. There were several other plans put in place to take him out and he denied all of them. He has no military experience. He has no leadership experience. It took countless amount of high ranking military officials to convince him to do this. And were was he when the raid was starting? The fucking golf course. He had to be pulled in.

ogar572 Re:False equivalence (223 comments)

There are a few things you forgot to mention while comparing to cod 1. You dont see soliders jumping around like kangaroos to avoid being shot 2. Waiting 10 seconds doesnt automatically put you back to full health. 3. The main rifle can have more that 2 attachments 4. And the most important, once you die, you aren't respawning.

Playstation Netowrk Outage Compensation

ogar572 ogar572 writes  |  more than 3 years ago

ogar572 (531320) writes "So Sony is going to give 20 million+ Playstation Network Users (numbers vary based on what article you read) 2 free games and free credit protection (U.S. only) for what happened a few weeks ago. I for one do miss playing Black Ops online but I have made it through this outage by doing other, more productive things. What I am most frustrated about is their lack of consistent details and informing me via email about what is going on. Now they have came out and said that they are going to compensate us with 2 free downloadable game (more than likely I have never heard of these games before) . I would have been satisfied with the free credit protection. Now that they want to offer me 2 games, why can't I pick any 2 games that I want. I mean, my personal info is now probably being sold on the black market because of you. Slashdot community, what do you think Sony should do, if anything, to compensate for what has happened?"

Credit Card Breaches: Who is to blame?

ogar572 ogar572 writes  |  more than 5 years ago

ogar572 (531320) writes "After reading this article, Visa, MasterCard In Security Hot Seat, it states that the companies that were breached had followed the PCI guidelines, but it doesn't state who confirmed that the breached companies followed the guidelines. Who is to blame on this? I think it is the credit card companies for not enforcing there security standards. Is there anything out there proves that a site is following the PCI guidelines? Does any one really care about this besides the companies who are in service to "make sure" that you are compliant? I have seen a lot of code written in my day dealing with credit card processing and handling and, well, it makes me want to only deal with cash."

ogar572 (531320) writes "There has been an ongoing and heated debate around the office concerning the definition of what /etc means on *nix operating systems. One side says "et cetera" per Wikipedia. Another side says it means "extended tool chest" per this gnome mailing list entry or per this Norwegian article. Yet another side says neither, but he doesn't remember exactly what he heard in the past. All he remembers is that he was flamed when he called it "et cetera", but that "extended tool chest" didn't sound right either. So, what does it really mean?"
