Amazon's Echo Chamber

petteyg359 Re: Uh (112 comments)

Right, my semi-closed system must be worse than your semi-closed system... FFS, any dev can upload their app to both, if they want both sets of users.

Ask Slashdot: Can You Say Something Nice About Systemd?

petteyg359 Re:It freakin' works fine (928 comments)

The major distro I'm using, which is included in "all of them", has absolutely no requirement for me to use systemd, nor is it the default init system. So, why is it that you think "all of them" are switching? Sounds like more blind promotion of change for the sake of change.

Ask Slashdot: Can You Say Something Nice About Systemd?

petteyg359 Re:It freakin' works fine (928 comments)

The problem with systemd and its supporters like you is that you think change and progress are the same thing. This change is regress.

And there's absolutely nothing wrong with it being intentional, unless you're claiming that parasites deserve to leech FTDI's work.

Security Collapse In the HTTPS Market

petteyg359 Re:So offer a cost effective replacement (185 comments)

HTTPS is only sufficient until ISPs install proxies and give all the technophobe morons who are proud to proclaim "I don't know about all them flashing lights and stuff!" a nice little "internet installer" CD that sets the proxy as a trusted root, or has the tech who comes out because the customer is too proud of their ignorance to connect a coax cable between two coax ports and an ethernet cable between two ethernet ports install it for them.

Say Goodbye To That Unwanted U2 Album

petteyg359 Re:Downloading music for free? Scandelous! (323 comments)

Some people don't give a shit about data usage, hence having automatic downloads on. Some people DO give a shit about having shit music forced into their library without their consent. I like all _my_ music, so my playlist is everything-on-random. It's MY playlist, not Apple's playlist, and they can keep their shit out of it.

SanDisk Releases 512GB SD Card

petteyg359 Re:1024-fold (210 comments)

Microsoft has had plenty of time to fix that, either via an utterly simple string replacement, or a minutely less-simple calculation (size / (1024^n / 1000^n) where n is the power of thousands in size). I wonder how much of a kickback Microsoft took from the lawyers in the frivolous lawsuits against Western Digital and others.

California DMV Told Google Cars Still Need Steering Wheels

petteyg359 Re:Not surprising (506 comments)

Wrong. This is playing it anti-safe. You put that wheel and pedals back, and you allow idiots to take over control of the kinetic warhead.

ICANN Offers Fix For Domain Name Collisions

petteyg359 Re:In other words (101 comments)

ICANN should just reserve a TLD or two for private networks similar to how some IP ranges were reserved in RFC1918.>

Yeah, but who will be responsible for handing ICANN the annual briefcase-full-of-large-bills to pay for such a scheme?

Ask Slashdot: Should You Invest In Documentation, Or UX?

petteyg359 UI (199 comments)

As everyone knows, having the letters in an acronym actually match the first letter of the word they stand for is stupid, so you should invest a very large amount of money replacing every instance of "UI" with "UX".

Oracle Hasn't Killed Java -- But There's Still Time

petteyg359 Re:Nobody kills Java (371 comments)

Nothing I said contradicts that.

So, when you said this:

How often do you see Java browser applets used anyway? Not that much,

you didn't say that?

Oracle Hasn't Killed Java -- But There's Still Time

petteyg359 Re:Nobody kills Java (371 comments)

You ever heard of that big payroll company called ADP? They use a Java 6 applet (one that refuses to run if you even have vague thoughts about installing JRE 7 or 8) for their time card software. Lots of big companies outsource their payroll to ADP, therefore lots of big companies are still using Java applets as a core function of their business.

Of course it looks stupid. Stupidity is required to use apostrophes as a form of pluralization.

Popular Shuttered Torrent Site Demonoid Returns

demonoid.ph is running on IPv6. Those MAFIAA guys are technophobes, and we all know they wouldn't touch IPv6 with a ten foot pole.
