pudding7 Re:Limited cargo use (438 comments)

If this becomes a thing, then the standard by which all Slingatrons are measured is how much energy they take to fire a pound of bacon into the asteroid belt.

30 Days Is Too Long: Animated Rant About Windows 8

pudding7 Re:This guy is an idiot (1110 comments)

I'll just copy my reply to another similar post... So you're ignoring half the OS, and you've installed a 3rd party application to make the part you aren't ignoring actually usable?

Inside the Real Economy Behind Fake Twitter Followers

pudding7 To what end? (75 comments)

Is the sole purpose of doing this to make an entity seem more popular on Twitter than they really are? Assuming so, what is the tangible benefit of doing that? Does Mitt Romney win the election if he has more (albiet fake) Twitter followers?

Ask Slashdot: Is There a Professional Geek Dress Code?

pudding7 Appearance matters (432 comments)

That said, you don't have to wear a suit and tie. Black/Brown shoes, nice jeans, and a long sleeve shirt (untucked).

pudding7 Re:Text transcription? (139 comments)

Agreed. I'm not going to sit here and watch a video of two guys talking. Sorry, it's just not going to happen. Give me a transcript, and I'll read it top to bottom.

Ask Slashdot: Best Option For Printing Digital Photos?

pudding7 Snapfish (350 comments)

My wife does a ton of stuff using Snapfish. The site seems slow as hell whenever I've been on it, but it works I guess. Upload all your pics, then order one print of each if you want.

Ask Slashdot: My Company Wants Me To Astroturf, Should I?

pudding7 Re:Honesty (391 comments)

I would not share my plans with coworkers or supervisors. Keep your mouth shut about it. I'd be surprised if anyone else in the company cares about this half as much as you do.

Chevy Volt To Resume Production One Week Early Following Record Sales

pudding7 Re:Bad press... (443 comments)

The Volt's gas mileage for my wife would be about infinity. She rarely drives more than about 20 miles a day. How does that compare with your Geo Metro?

Retail Chains To Strike Back Against Online Vendors

pudding7 Re:Right.... (532 comments)

Well said. The thought of Barnes & Noble closing up all their stores scares the hell out of me. I love books. Real books, not eBooks. The Borders by my house closed, which was sad, but not terrible because there's a B&N across the street from my work. If that were to close, it would be a really, really sad day.

Picture Blocking Beer Cooler Keeps Your Face Out of Embarrassing Photos

pudding7 Re:Does NOT work (200 comments)

Also, if the blocker thing is behind the camera, it won't work. Also, if the blocker thing is covered by a cardboard box, it won't work.

RIM To Offer Multiplatform Device Management

pudding7 Too late (55 comments)

20 minutes ago I powered down our BES for the last time. Got all my Blackberry users over to iPhones and Android two months ago. It felt so good knowing that my last annual support payment was the final one. It really wasn't even me driving the migration away from Blackberry, it was my users basically demanding iPhones and Incredibles. Nobody here has cared about a RIM launch in ages.

Then change the timing of the lights to prevent it, rather than just catch the people as they do it.

Navy Bomb Squads Get a Solar Power Upgrade

pudding7 But... (56 comments)

I've been told repeatedly that alternative energy is just a Liberal tree-hugging pipe dream that destroys jobs and wastes money! Now you're telling me that we can wage more effective war by using solar energy? Well, consider my mind blown. Vote Republican! 'Cause anything else is treason!
