Nice story bro. They should make a movie of it.

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.

US Arrests Son of Russian MP In Maldives For Hacking

r1348 Re:Hm... (176 comments)

I'm asking this out of personal interest, I'm European too, and I would like my children to study in a school that would allow them to place well-known island groups in the right ocean.

Malvinas and Maldives are different islands, and very, very far apart. Where did you study?

Watch Dogs Released, DRM Troubles

r1348 Re:Don't understand the hype (123 comments)

Well, there are walkthroughs on youtube already if you want to get an idea. As far as the story line might sound sci-fi, the game in general is much closer to GTA5 than DeusEx. The latter actively encourages a stealth approach, while in Watch Dogs you'll find yourself in the middle of (unavoidable) shootings very often, but don't worry, your average hacker can apparently take a lot of bullets...
I was also having high expectations for this game, but so far a big let down. Not plausible enough to be a good DeusEx, not batshit crazy enough to be a good GTA5.

No, it's basically GTA5 with less crazy shit and more techno-babble.
