"Team America" Gets Post-Hack Yanking At Alamo Drafthouse, Too

psm321 Re:What are they going to do? (230 comments)

Oh, I wasn't claiming the threat was credible or the reaction warranted (I don't believe either), just countering the assertion that the hackers hadn't invoked 9/11.

"Team America" Gets Post-Hack Yanking At Alamo Drafthouse, Too

psm321 Re:What are they going to do? (230 comments)

Umm, it's clearly in the text of the threat.

We will clearly show it to you at the very time and places “The Interview” be shown, including the premiere, how bitter fate those who seek fun in terror should be doomed to.
Soon all the world will see what an awful movie Sony Pictures Entertainment has made.
The world will be full of fear.
Remember the 11th of September 2001.
We recommend you to keep yourself distant from the places at that time.
(If your house is nearby, you’d better leave.)
Whatever comes in the coming days is called by the greed of Sony Pictures Entertainment.
All the world will denounce the SONY.

$35 Quad-core Hacker SBC Offers Raspberry Pi-like Size and I/O

psm321 Re:XBMC Finally? (140 comments)

I've actually been using a NEO-6M hacked to do timing output (because I hadn't found any affortable 6t's yet), but the procedure to get it to do that is annoying, and the antenna that came with it is a piece of crap. I'm going to go ahead and inquire with synergy to see if they still have these (don't see them on the website) and probably order. So thanks again :)

University of Michigan does this with their Google Apps, though it's a specific contract and not just the generic GAFE.

Apple Locks iPhone 6/6+ NFC To Apple Pay Only

psm321 Re:Only payments? (336 comments)

Bluetooth can absolutely do file transfers, and most (all?) Android phones have that functionality built-in. Many older dumbphones (without wifi) did too. Perhaps you're using an iPhone? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/L...

Supreme Court Rules Against Aereo Streaming Service

psm321 Re:misunderstanding of the internet? (484 comments)

My reaction to this ruling was to breathe a sigh of relief, because the likely consequence to an Aereo victory was the continued erosion of original content on OTA. That business model is hard enough to maintain as is with ad revenue.

Just like all the content companies were going to stop putting anything on the air without mandatory enforcement of the broadcast flag, right?

Apple Says Many Users 'Bought an Android Phone By Mistake'

psm321 Re:It true !!!! (711 comments)

Google Play is not the only way to get apps on your Android phone.
Steam is not the only way to get games on your PC.
Amazon is not the only way to get books onto your Kindle (according to my brief research... I don't use a Kindle myself)
Apple AppStore is the only way to get apps on your iPhone without jailbreaking (not required for any of the things listed above)

Anonymous's Latest Target: Boston Children's Hospital

psm321 Re:What about Justina? (329 comments)

They do... if you review any of the available information on the case it's obvious that she is both physically and psychologically much worse off now. Wheelchair-bound instead of ice-skating and smuggling notes begging to be taken out and saying "I feel like I'm in jail". BCH and the judge messed up (possibly with good intentions at first) and now are perpetuating their mistake to try to cover it up.

Amazon Angling For Same-Day Delivery Beyond Groceries

psm321 Re:Maybe they deserve it (193 comments)

Along the same lines of not integrating online and brick-and-mortar, I hate that most stores don't have a good way to access in-store inventory online. If I'm visiting Sears' website, it's generally not because I want to order something online from Sears, and even less likely that I want to buy from another seller on Sears' copy-cat Amazon marketplace. It's because I want something now and I want to find out if the store has it. As far as I can tell, that's pretty much impossible with most stores other than by going in yourself or taking the time to call every store and find someone in the right department who can tell you whether they have the sort of item you're looking for.

My First Journal Entry

Then there's something wrong with your setup. Yes I know this has a journal (ext3) but I've done it on my previous filesystem without a journal and I don't see how a journal would affect the file size the file system can handle.
