rebelwarlock Re:Stands to reason (181 comments)

McAfee says North Korea didn't do it? That's all the proof I need that they did!

President Obama Will Kibbitz With YouTube Stars

rebelwarlock What the fuck is a Kibbitz? (105 comments)

At least explain your nonsense if you're going to say it in public.

Study: Belief That Some Fields Require "Brilliance" May Keep Women Out

rebelwarlock That title... (218 comments)

That's... probably more sexist than what they're attempting to study. What they're saying is that either women are incapable of brilliance, or they're so insecure that they get scared off by big hefty expectations. Holy shit, guys. Was this found in a time capsule from the 50s or something?

Four Facepalm Bugs In USPS Label-Printing Site

rebelwarlock My favorite part (182 comments)

Now they're actually trying to bury the fact that Benny Hill is writing this verbal diarrhea by neglecting to put the warning in the summary we all got used to seeing. So before Ben 10 shows up and whines "but wut i r wrong about?", you're wrong about the entire fucking premise. None of these are bugs. Also, you're an idiot.

Extreme Heat Knocks Out Internet In Australia

rebelwarlock Nice headline (103 comments)

Let me just fix that for you:

Extreme heat, as compared to the climate in a specific part of Australia, causes one ISP to panic and shut down internet for a small percentage of customers in said specific part of Australia.

Bots Scanning GitHub To Steal Amazon EC2 Keys

rebelwarlock Sounds like multiple failures (119 comments)

But the user is still mostly to blame. Okay, so you might not find it intuitive that S3 keys can lead to new EC2 instances - I wouldn't have guessed that either, even though I've used both repeatedly. Maybe that shouldn't even be a possibility. But what howling insanity persuaded you to put those keys on github in the first fucking place? And if it was a mistake, why didn't you change them after? This isn't amateur hour, guys - there's real money at stake here.

Pew Survey: Tech Increases Productivity, But Also Time Spent Working

rebelwarlock Wow, office jobs must suck (82 comments)

All the posts on slashdot bitching about just about every aspect of working, you'd think it was the worst thing ever. Why don't you just freelance if you hate it so much? It seems to have worked out well for me so far, but then again, I didn't think an open office was the devil, either.

Putting Time Out In Time Out: The Science of Discipline

rebelwarlock You know how I know this is a bunch of horseshit? (323 comments)

First line:

"At the end of a gravel road in the Chippewa National Forest of northern Minnesota"

Why do I give a fuck if they were at the end of a gravel road? I don't, and neither does anyone of even the most negligible consequence. They're clearly pandering to a very specific audience with this article. Not that the rest of the summary is any better, of course.

FBI Confirms Open Investigation Into Gamergate

rebelwarlock Great summary (556 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 (175 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.

TigerDirect.com blocking international access during black friday.

rebelwarlock rebelwarlock writes  |  about a year 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."
