Too Much Privacy: Finnish Police Want Big Euro Notes Taken Out of Circulation

r1348 Re:To their defense (314 comments)

It would do nothing to curb criminality, it's just another excuse to privatize the circulation of money. Want a cash-free economy? Fine, give me my free State debit card.

Ask Slashdot: Linux-Friendly Desktop x86 Motherboard Manufacturers?

r1348 Don't rule out ASRock (294 comments)

My main PC has an ASRock H77 Pro/MVP and I have zero problems with Fedora, all hardware recognized, UEFI works fine, CSM was disabled by default and I never bothered to turn it on, but most distros should work fine with it now.

Fake NVIDIA Graphics Cards Show Up In Germany

r1348 Re:I bought one of these for Litecoin mining (76 comments)

Might be, but that's really up to Amazon to do. I won't sue someone for a 20€ scam, it's just not worth the money and time.

Fake NVIDIA Graphics Cards Show Up In Germany

r1348 Re:I bought one of these for Litecoin mining (76 comments)

I did have to mail it back without charge, while I added a detailed description of the problem, I don't know if they actually tested it or not, but a few days later I've got my money back.

Fake NVIDIA Graphics Cards Show Up In Germany

r1348 Re:I bought one of these for Litecoin mining (76 comments)

It's just some hacked electronics, not so uncommon. I bought a 32Gb mSDHC card a few months ago on Amazon, and I received a "32Gb mSDXC" card, complete with fake Samsung packaging, that on a better inspection turned out to be an old 2Gb mSD card with hacked firmware to show up as 32Gb to the host system. Of course any file transfer beyond the 2Gb limit was failing miserably.
No biggie, I contacted Amazon and received a full refund, and the dealer was soon after banned from Amazon, apparently I wasn't the only one being scammed.

States That Raised Minimum Wage See No Slow-Down In Job Growth

r1348 Re:Local testing works? (778 comments)

So basically, the wealthy will exploit the poor if not forced otherwise? If anything, that seems more like a law enforcement issue to me.

A Skeptical View of Israel's Iron Dome Rocket Defense System

r1348 Re:Subject bait (379 comments)

Highly debatable, actually Palestinian Arabs are descendants of Levantine Semites as much as Jews, so you wouldn't say that yours is the only civilization still around.
