CoreOS Announces Competitor To Docker

pooh666 Re:Fuck me. (71 comments)

He wasn't talking about FreeBSD 20 years ago, he was talking about App deployment on mainframes 20 years ago. Yes, junior it isn't a new idea. Sure some things are different, but many fundamentals were ideas way way before we had the super power, speed we do now.

Black Friday '14: E-commerce Pages Far Slower Than They Were in 2013

pooh666 Re:excessive scripts (143 comments)

What is the site? This smells of some poor choices, but mixing in A/B with Analytics in your description is not clear. Are your pages fully cached with a CDN? Are there major content decisions made only in the JS?

Black Friday '14: E-commerce Pages Far Slower Than They Were in 2013

pooh666 Re:excessive scripts (143 comments)

It isn't the amount, as much as the complexity and the number of different vendors, programmers, companies that are represented. The post a way's up blaming "tracking" is way oversimplified and hitting the wrong issue. How do you debug a page for performance AND MAKE ANY CHANGES, if much of the code you didn't write and you can't change?

Black Friday '14: E-commerce Pages Far Slower Than They Were in 2013

pooh666 Re:But why? (143 comments)

I don't know how this got moded up, it is nonsense. Most tracking happens post load/post interactive, and someone saying, "looking at your status line" is a telltale for this person not having a clue about website performance opt. I get this from JS devs and PM's all of the time, and I really do have to prove that the 1M of badly optimized images is more the problem.

Two Google Engineers Say Renewables Can't Cure Climate Change

pooh666 Re:If and only if (652 comments)

Lower transportation costs, well frankly if those go up, I see a likely benifit regarding more local jobs. I don't see batteries powering those massive container ships, but then again, there is more oil for that kind of shit if it isn't being used in cars, for other power etc.

Microsoft To Open Source .NET and Take It Cross-Platform

pooh666 Re:Desparate Microsoft pulls a "Sun Microsystems" (525 comments)

"What the fuck is Qt?", my boss says. He is right. Great news re .Net. Good luck to all of those unable to see the benifit of this. Our companies will eat your companies for peanuts, not because of .Net, but because your tech opinons are so clouded with emotion.

Getting Lost In the Scientific Woods Is Good For You

pooh666 Re:Obvious (51 comments)

Well it seems to me a lot of scientists might as well have become accounts. Mechanism? no. Stats on what happens when you combine 500,000 PPM of something you shouldn't eat or touch anyway, with a mice's ear, oh yes.. But then everything is always about Money. Lost in the woods is what I used to DREAM science was really like. Maybe it is for some few, some very few.

The sad thing is that this is now taken to be, "common sense", instead of acknowledging the environment of fear created, NOT by the terrorists.
