The Sounds of Tech Past

pdboddy Re:Comment follows (231 comments)

Not just the whoooom, but the LSD-like-hazy-wobble of the screen coming into focus. I sort of miss that too.

Double Fine Adventure Will Be Available DRM Free For IOS, Android

pdboddy Re:Both DRM free and DRM'ed versions. (117 comments)

Steam's DRM is ... sign in to play. The game will likely allow you to play offline, without the need for a CD Key, jumping through hoops, or installing rootkits that slowly shred your hard drive and CD Rom.

Hotmail's Spam Filter: The Best In the Business?

pdboddy Heh, how exactly did they test this...? (182 comments)

I rarely use my hotmail account, yet every time I log in, there's always spam in my Inbox, and more spam in the spam folder.

I use my Gmail account frequently, and have not seen a spam in my Inbox in years. The spam folder has spam in it most days, but I expect this because I am actively using (and giving out) my Gmail address. Google's filters are fantastic.

I suspect that most people have similar experiences, judging from the replies I'm seeing here.

Canada First Nation To Pull Out of Kyoto Accord

pdboddy Re:Huh? (561 comments)

Embarrassing or not, neither the Tory, nor the previous Liberal, governments have had awesome track records when it comes to the environment. But there is a point in saying that the Kyoto Accord wasn't going to work well without India and China on board. And carbon trading is just a sham. And frankly, it doesn't matter one bit what the gov't does, if we, as consumers, continue to drive SUVs two blocks to get a bag of chips.

Rob "CmdrTaco" Malda Resigns From Slashdot

pdboddy Thank you. (1521 comments)

Thank you, Commander Taco, for making Slashdot what it was, and is. I've continued to read this site daily, even as other sites fell by the wayside, from the day I followed a link to it.

I've contributed to many a Slashdotting.

The arguments have been fun and entertaining.

And idle is pants.

Pete

Ask Slashdot: What To Do With Other People's Email?

pdboddy Re:So you dont want to filter it... (619 comments)

Oops, got your neighbors snail mail. Gotta move houses now.

Oops, wrong assignment in my work inbox. Damn, gotta get a new job.

Damn, someone called the wrong number, and I have to get a new phone number.

Brilliant idea.

Ask Slashdot: What To Do With Other People's Email?

pdboddy Re:"bounce" in Mail.app (619 comments)

Great idea... bounce messages to DO-NOT-REPLY addresses which reply to your bounce which you bounce back...

Careful, that one's heading for the trailer park.

And bounce is not what the OP was looking for.

Ask Slashdot: What To Do With Other People's Email?

pdboddy Re:New email address? (619 comments)

Don't be a goober. Changing your email address 'cause someone else's email is getting to you is like buying a new house because you got your neighbor's snailmail. The guy's comment is legit: How many friends and family members have your email address? How many forums have you signed up with yours? Do you do any online banking? Use eBay? Or Paypal? Do you not know how much of a pain in the ass it would be to change your email address and sort out all the stuff you'd have to change?

Slashdot Launches Re-Design

pdboddy Looks good but... (2254 comments)

I think it looks much cleaner than v2, but there are a few bugs at the moment. One that I have found just now is that when you zoom in Chrome, it does not stay focused on the section you were looking at.

Alan Dabiri, Lead Software Engineer For StarCraft 2

As I said up the stream a bit there, he was using the trainer program ONLINE while playing with his friends. His own fault.

Alan Dabiri, Lead Software Engineer For StarCraft 2

pdboddy Re:a lead? (138 comments)

What's your point? Blizzard's a large-ish company, with their own corporate structure. Just because your company does something a particular way doesn't mean Blizzard does.

Also, the header for the story says "Alan Dabiri, Lead Software Engineer for StarCraft 2". In the sentence you quote, the author of the story (you'd have to ask to be sure) may have meant "a Lead Software Engineer for Blizzard Entertainment, who worked on Wings of Liberty..". Or perhaps the "a" is an error.

Merry Christmas from Edmonton, Canada, and GMAIL INVITES!

pdboddy pdboddy writes  |  more than 9 years ago Well folks, I am off on a well-earned vacation to the blustery city of Edmonton. I'm standing at a Shaw Internet terminal in some mall somewhere, and in checking my gmail account, I find I have six invites sitting around. I'm giving away three of them!
