Employers Worried About Critical Thinking Skills

pooh666 Re:What is critical thinking? (509 comments)

Seeking the truth and constantly re-defining the truth based on un-biased interpetation of experimental results. That is "critical" The old, the man is sitting in the chair = true, the man got up, the preceeding statement is now false. Ok next.

More Eye Candy Coming To Windows 10

pooh666 Re:how pretty (209 comments)

Indeed. I turn off all animations they waste time and resources. How about making it super easy for me not to have to do searches for files all of the time? More intelligent awareness of what I did last time when I opened a file from one folder vs another. LESS visual BS that just looks pretty but leaves me entirely confused as to how to do my work. FRICKN OFFICE MENUS MUST DIE.

pooh666 JS single thread? (122 comments)

So does this put the pressure on to adapt JS to match up? Otherwise, it seems to me that the single thread deal with JS will partly hinder mulitplexing goodness. fast fast on the network, still slow slow on the browser. I guess that has always been the case even with multiple requests at a time, but it always seemed to me that was a kind of accepted, almost excuse re JS. Like yeah, "you don't want to make too many requests at once anyway"...

jQuery.com Compromised To Serve Malware

pooh666 Re:Thats not good. (103 comments)

yep, and the low visibility of your one single site means that any exploit on your version of jquery will be much more likely to go unnoticed. Not to mention the not RTFA part about it not affecting hosted versions.

Could Tech Have Stopped ISIS From Using Our Own Heavy Weapons Against Us?

pooh666 Re:Here's an idea (448 comments)

So we invaded for the children? Or so that Iran could turn their attention away from their most mortal enemy? It was never the U.S. until maybe now.

Akamai Warns: Linux Systems Infiltrated and Controlled In a DDoS Botnet

pooh666 Re:Hmmm (230 comments)

This comparison is pointless and simply minded or just a troll. Security is about layers, so who really cares, one layer or another always needs attention, sanity, and in particluar maintenance. The parent had good points, but still, again, who really cares about out of the box? No one who should have a job setting up servers. Out of the box my bricked Nintendo is very secure. Or should we say OpenBSD for all cases? No of course not.

'Just Let Me Code!'

pooh666 Re:Documentation (372 comments)

It is too bad you anon cowarded this, but I will reply anyway. Your lib sounds fantastic, I wish it had Windows support. I have been mainly looking for a replacement for mod_perl/mod_proxy combination. Re node, I notice they have a lib just to deal with the single thread issue of one fatal error taking down the whole server, and the caution on CPU intensive opperations seems to mean you have to create some extra complexity in offloading that, because to me, even parsing a big block of json could be considered in that realm.. So the end results is that node is for passing small messages around really fast and not doing much with them, but we have enough chat severs already...
