Killer Apartment Vs. Persistent Microwave Exposure?

oglueck and you even consider buying it? (791 comments)

When you are already in doubt that this radiation could be a serious health risk, why do you still consider buying it? When in 10 years the radiation is known to cause longterm damage, it will be too late.

Fake "Bill Gates" Message Dupes Top Tools

oglueck SPF (117 comments)

linkedin.com text = "v=spf1 ip4: ip4: ip4: ip4: ip4: ip4: ip4: ip4: ip4: ip4: mx ~all"

That is ~all and not -all. So linkedin is happy with any IP sending mail in their name. It will only cause a soft fail and no MTA should reject the message as fake. It's hardly the fault of mail clients here.

Adobe Security Chief Defends JavaScript Support

oglueck Except... (216 comments)

...that nobody uses these "I am an electronic form" features anyway. All we want is view and print documents. But then, PostScript did exactly that. Oh wait, PDF is based on PostScript. I never understood why it had to be Adobe and PDF that the world uses today. It could have been (a nice version of) Ghostview and PostScript. Hm, but then nobody could have sold PDF-Creation Add-Ons to MS Word, because you could have used a PS printer driver.

oglueck Re:Why? (181 comments)

Well, the CD-ROM standard they support is "Joliet". Which is their own extension.... I wonder how long until they are going with patents after others implementing it.

X11 Chrome Reportedly Outperforms Windows and Mac Versions

oglueck Flash? (542 comments)

Who cares, when a Youtube Flash video is eating almost 100% of your CPU because it's idiotic use of X11? Playing a plain MPG video in mplayer uses almost no CPU.

Examining Chrome's Source Code

oglueck Re:What I don't get... (288 comments)

I totally agree. It's hard to believe that they even started without going cross-platform from the very beginning. Porting is so much harder! I haven't looked at the source but are they actually using at least something like a portable runtime? I know at least 2 to choose from: Apache (apr), Netscape (nspr). Did I mention Java? :-)
