FBI Confirms Open Investigation Into Gamergate

rebelwarlock Great summary (539 comments)

Yes, even though some people were threatened, there's an investigation. Looks like the author wanted the issue to be ignored because some people are assholes. That would be like if you got your car stolen, and because your racist neighbor said, "I hope you catch that nigger so I can lynch him!", the investigation was dropped. Bribery is still illegal, even if other things are happening.

Over 9,000 PCs In Australia Infected By TorrentLocker Ransomware

rebelwarlock Why single out Australia? (83 comments)

According to the image right at the top of the article, there were over 11000 in Turkey. If we're singling out the most infections, that should be the headline. Is Australia somehow more significant?

3D Printer?

rebelwarlock I just want to print miniatures (173 comments)

When there's a machine for under $300 that can get the details right on D&D sized minis I'll be all over it. Right now, mini printing is crap unless you want to spend a lot more on your machine.

Ask Slashdot: Can a Felon Work In IT?

rebelwarlock Go freelancer (720 comments)

I've never had a background check run on me for freelancing (to my knowledge). My record is clean, so I don't know for certain that this would work for you. However, I've been able to do very well for myself working at home ~30 hours a week. My wife doesn't work either.

Chinese Government Moves To Crack Down On Puns

rebelwarlock Re:Wrong (156 comments)

The news I got was from Taiwan, so we might not have the same sources. However, all the English articles I've seen either imply or directly state that it's a full on crackdown on everyone - no puns for any reason.

Chinese Government Moves To Crack Down On Puns

rebelwarlock Wrong (156 comments)

China isn't banning puns. They're disallowing news anchors from using them during broadcasts, specifically public media. But that's not fear mongering enough, so of course that's not how it got picked up.

Mathematical Trick Helps Smash Record For the Largest Quantum Factorization

rebelwarlock Enough (62 comments)

The clickbait joke reply wasn't funny the first time it was posted. It didn't suddenly become funny after the third time, or any time thereafter.

DOOM 3DO Source Released On Github

rebelwarlock Why does anyone care about gender for this? (323 comments)

Seriously, it's fucking source code. I don't care if the dev identifies as a man, woman, or plant. That doesn't make it any better or worse.

Creative Commons To Pass One Billion Licensed Works In 2015

rebelwarlock Shitty summary (39 comments)

"But measuring the size of the commons has always been a challenge. Until now..."

And why is that? What changed? Reading the article, it seems like the answer is, "We finally bothered to check."

HTML5: It's Already Everywhere, Even In Mobile

rebelwarlock What's the point of his rant? (133 comments)

"Already"? HTML5 has been around for a really long time. Web devs who try to desperately hold onto flash have been losing clients for years.

Unless, of course, this article was meant to draw attention to Tom Dale (because obviously he needs more attention), and two shitty articles about idiots thinking that web is dead. If that's the case, carry on.

Terrorists Used False DMCA Claims To Get Personal Data of Anti-Islamic Youtuber

rebelwarlock Trying to wrap my head around this (389 comments)

So someone submits a false DMCA, and Youtube accepted this without requiring any proof. They then forced the youtuber to provide proof that it wasn't a copyright violation. They then provided said youtuber's personal information to the person submitting a false DMCA.

What in the actual fuck?

The Most Highly Cited Scientific Papers of All Time

rebelwarlock Clickbait harder (81 comments)

The summary reads like it was written by Buzzfeed. It's also a top 100 list. Hovering over the link, it appears to be nature.com, but I'm going to err on the side of caution and not click on it.

TigerDirect.com blocking international access during black friday.

rebelwarlock rebelwarlock writes  |  1 year,20 days

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."
