Coffee Naps Better For Alertness Than Coffee Or Naps Alone

rebelwarlock Old news (104 comments)

This has been around for a while. Did we really need a new study to say the same thing?

Anita Sarkeesian, Creator of "Tropes vs. Women," Driven From Home By Trolls

rebelwarlock She feeds off attention (1168 comments)

I think the threats against her are retarded. The only way to kill her is to stop giving her attention. She would shrivel and die if no one listened to her nonsense.


Early Bitcoin User Interviewed By Federal Officers

rebelwarlock Bitcoin users didn't all start exchange services (92 comments)

Both the summary and headline (on slashdot - it's different on TFA) are a bunch of horseshit. Here's what the headline looks like on TFA:

A Law Enforcement Encounter: If you ran a Bitcoin related service before the thing hit $100 you prolly ought to be somewhat concerned and/or prepared

The rest of the article suggests he was only interviewed because of that service as well. So unless every single early user of bitcoin started up an exchange service, the part we have on slashdot is almost entirely fictional.

Operating Systems Still Matter In a Containerized World

rebelwarlock Who's wondering this? (129 comments)

Was anyone really wondering if operating systems no longer mattered? Might as well have gone with "Nothing is different" as your headline.

Facebook Tests "Satire" Tag To Avoid Confusion On News Feed

rebelwarlock Satire is a good way to clean up your friend list (131 comments)

If you played GTA Vice City, you probably remember how utterly insane the political radio interviews were. I once posted as my status a chunk of one of those interviews, and watched people proceed to lose their shit in my general direction. If you don't realize I'm joking when you see me post, "It's simple: if you don't have a job, starve", we probably won't get along very well anyway.

rebelwarlock Guest bedroom (246 comments)

My wife won't let me go in there. I got a glimpse from the outside once. It looked like a treasure trove of old crap we no longer use and don't feel like throwing away. Besides that, there appear to be mythical "guest towels" and "throw pillows".

Murder Suspect Asked Siri Where To Hide a Dead Body

rebelwarlock Re:No, he didn't. (160 comments)

Alright, why don't you tell us what actually happened? The linked article said he did. Furthermore, that article linked this one, that actually included a screenshot of the Siri query. That in turn linked this one, which also collaborates the story. So tell us, in all your wisdom, what really happened?

Patents That Kill

rebelwarlock So I read the article (240 comments)

Not a single death was reported. Hey, here's an idea: don't make your headlines misleading. Patents might not be my favorite thing in the world, but unless they are literally killing people, then this headline is horseshit. The Economist just got added to my blacklist for that. Good job, jackasses!

Synolocker 0-Day Ransomware Puts NAS Files At Risk

rebelwarlock Interesting (150 comments)

So between TOR and bitcoin, they think they finally have a viable method of collecting on ransomware. Also, I found it interesting that they're asking specifically for 0.6BTC - that is, double what Cryptolocker is asking. I wonder if there's an intentional correlation there.

NFL Players To Use Tablet Computers During Games

rebelwarlock So people can use technology (107 comments)

I'm shocked, really. Tablets and wireless communication aren't exactly the pinnacle of human achievement right now. Get back to me when they do something innovative.

Windows XP Falls Below 25% Market Share, Windows 8 Drops Slightly

rebelwarlock People hear "Windows 8" and run away (336 comments)

8.1 might be a huge step up, but it doesn't matter. People remember the UI disaster that was Windows 8, and figure 8.1 can't be that much different. It has such a bad reputation, they'll need to call it something else to sell it at this point. Would you even consider having a doctor give you Cancer.1, or would you hear the question and immediately get yourself a new doctor without even finding out what Cancer.1 was?

Elon Musk is going to setup a 3d printed Raspberry Pi array to farm bitcoins, thus causing buzzwords to reach critical mass.

rebelwarlock I don't get the hype (68 comments)

Reglue: Opening Up the World To Deserving Kids With Linux Computers

rebelwarlock It's better for schools than families (91 comments)

Thing is, you can get an ISP to donate an internet connection to a school. If you have poor kids, they probably go to a poor school, so why not just hook up the school with a network of linux machines and let the kids learn there?

Let me know when you have an objective article I can read. Also, thanks for showing your bias instantly in the summary so I knew not to bother clicking on anything.

top blocking international access during black friday.

rebelwarlock rebelwarlock writes  |  about 9 months ago

rebelwarlock (1319465) writes "If you live outside the US and want to do some shopping from TigerDirect this weekend, you're out of luck. International visitors are currently being greeted by an "Access Denied" message when trying to visit any page on the server. They have been deleting the complaints left by international users on their Facebook page, but complaints left as comments on their own posts are still showing up. The excuse? "Our international servers are down." Of course they are."

Antivirus Founder, John McAfee arrested in Belize

rebelwarlock rebelwarlock writes  |  more than 2 years ago

rebelwarlock (1319465) writes "McAfee lives in Belize and he says that he has become a target of the Gang Suppression Unit. He says the GSU came busting into his research facility in Orange Walk, killed his dog, took his passport, handcuffed him and arrested him on a bogus weapons charge. McAfee says he’s a victim because he didn’t donate money to a known U.D.P. Orange Walk politician."
