Dad Makes His Kid Play Through All Video Game History In Chronological Order

psyclone Re:Yeah, already planning this. (222 comments)

Easy to disable blood in those FPSes, and I prefer it in Open Arena (faster & less distraction).

What is your computer most often plugged into?

psyclone Re:I bet half the answers are wrong (236 comments)

Exactly. Get a silicon diode surge protector, which you'll know by reading the specs and paying a higher price. Using the cheap power strips with metal-oxide varistor (MOV) surge protection are useless.

Quake Meets Minecraft in FPS Construction Kit Gunscape

psyclone Re:You could make maps for quake (50 comments)

Exactly this, and it still happens today with Open Arena. It's how I find and play great new maps on a regular basis. Join servers with active players who already vetted them for me.

You Got Your Windows In My Linux

psyclone Re:Lennart Poetterings rebuttal (613 comments)

Interesting, it's nice to know that you can still use syslog along side systemd's journald. From the limited remarks, it appears you still get full syslog output.

Mozilla Rolls Out Sponsored Tiles To Firefox Nightly's New Tab Page

psyclone Re:Work for the man, not for mankind (171 comments)

To compete with Google [Chrome] they need to not rely on Google for 90% of their funding.

As long as the ads are clearly marked with no privacy implications (no pre-fetch of those sponsored tiles that sends cookies, exec's javascript, pings 40 trackers, etc.) then I support the move.

It's sad, but if Mozilla dies, will any free software group fill their void? The Net would never be the same...

The Evolution of Diet

psyclone Re:Correlation Does Not Imply Causation (281 comments)

So does "Paleo" involve capturing wild goats or sheep, feeding and milking them for many days to get enough cream to make butter?

I guess it depends how long in the past we are talking about. Early nomadic people didn't have domesticated animals they herded around. Even the dog is only ~ 30k years old.

The Evolution of Diet

psyclone Re:Tobacco Companies (281 comments)

I wonder if in 50 years we'll see the same legal actions and moral conscience swing towards processed food makers as the late 20th century saw towards tobacco companies.

The Evolution of Diet

psyclone Re:Correlation Does Not Imply Causation (281 comments)

Try exercise for a minimum of 6 weeks about 3-4 times a week (something you like, sports or even walking on the golf course) and you'll find you /want/ to do more of it. And if your mind and body are in shape, the last 10 years might not be so bad.

The Evolution of Diet

psyclone Re:Correlation Does Not Imply Causation (281 comments)

Cut the butter, cheese, and sour cream from the paleo diet, unless "paleo" now includes domesticated animals and stationary time to ferment and age milk (like agrarian). You might be thinking of another fad diet: Atkins.

New Watson-Style AI Called Viv Seeks To Be the First 'Global Brain'

psyclone Re:This is important (161 comments)

How is this algorithm any different than Wolfram Alpha? Both are light on actual details and they both claim to do the same thing.

Type 225 Words per Minute with a Stenographic Keyboard (Video)

psyclone Time for a Race (109 comments)

Race Qwerty vs Dvorak vs Steno at Type Racer.

Clearly some people type much faster than a measly 120 WPM (as TFA indicated) using a qwerty layout.

Ask Slashdot: Life Beyond the WRT54G Series?

psyclone Re:They used to call me paranoid... (427 comments)

I have no idea how those work, I would assume the channel guide is an external web service and is not hosted by the Actiontec router.

It's worth a try, you can always restore the router to it's default. It's not like you're flashing the firmware of the Actiontec, just changing some settings.

Ask Slashdot: Life Beyond the WRT54G Series?

psyclone Re:They used to call me paranoid... (427 comments)

Do the same thing. Setup the Actiontec to ONLY speak DSL and pass through the PPPoE connection to your router of choice. Thus your router of choice does the PPPoE authentication, and does NAT, and optionally wifi. As it now knows your external IP every time it changes, it can more easily use various dynamic DNS providers.

If you reverse the polarity of the neutrino beam, you might be able to detect the tachyon pulse that's out of phase with normal matter!

.NET Registry may Change Domain Dispute Process

psyclone psyclone writes  |  more than 3 years ago

psyclone (187154) writes "The May 10th deadline for comments on the .net registry agreement renewal has arrived with new domain name dispute changes. Instead of UDRP, the new agreement proposes adding the Uniform Rapid Suspension (URS) process to the .net TLD. The URS is a quick $200 process for a trademark holder to disable and take ownership of a domain. URS also reduces the panel size from 1-3 people to a single person. You can still comment on the proposal by sending an email to ICANN."
