Is Google Polluting the Internet?

phantomflanflinger Re:Does the Bear poop in the woods ? (378 comments)

People think Google is a good search engine because when they type their query it finds what they want. I am amazed so many nerds can't grasp this and think people want something else from a search engine - and attempt to code it.

As for Google being a corporation and making money, they are guilty of that.

As for Streetview, you can get higher res pictures of streets by walking down them. Molecules are smaller than pixels. Thus far.

Who Is Downloading the Torrented Facebook Files?

phantomflanflinger Re:I would not be too surprised (142 comments)

Most of the traffic PeerBlock blocks is false positives. It blocks huge ranges of IP addresses, YOU could be on one of their lists. The Gizmodo article says "it should be mostly accurate". Lol.

It used to be called PeerGuardian, remember? The "lucky talisman" app that stops teh RIAA catching you? What a load of balls.

How Do IT Guys Get Respect and Not Become BOFHs?

phantomflanflinger black_box = solution (902 comments)

When someone doesn't respect you, wait until they have to give a big presentation, then tell them you can get hold of the ACTUAL BOX that contains the WHOLE INTERNET...

N.B. Before you do this, make sure you clear it with... The Hawk.

RIAA Drops Enforcement Case To "Sort Out" Inaccuracies

phantomflanflinger Re:Better late than never (69 comments)

Indeed; the British government never underestimated the IRAA. Thankfully, the permanent ceasefire brought peace to Northern Ireland. Or rather, it stopped IRA bombs going off in England, which is all the British Government (and the British public) ever cared about.

I'm just glad I live in Britain - yes, the IRA used to be a threat to me, but the RIAA never will.

Microsoft to buy back $40bn of its shares

phantomflanflinger phantomflanflinger writes  |  more than 5 years ago

phantomflanflinger (832614) writes "As you may have heard already, Microsoft have announced their intentions to buy back $40 billion in stock from their investors, in the biggest single buy-back plan in business history. The announcement has given Microsoft shares a small gain but they still stand significantly below their level in January — before Microsoft's unsolicited bid for Yahoo!. The announcement of the plan has also created new speculation about a now-or-never deal with Yahoo!."

One of the coolest place in the Universe

phantomflanflinger phantomflanflinger writes  |  about 6 years ago

phantomflanflinger (832614) writes "The Cern Laboratory, home of the Large Hadron Collider, is fast becoming one of the coolest places in the Universe.

According to news.bbc.co.uk, the Large Hadron Collider is entering the final stages of being lowered to a temperature of 1.9 Kelvin (-271C; -456F) — colder than deep space.

The LHC aims to re-create the conditions just after the Big Bang and continue the search for the Higgs boson."
