Chinese City Sets Up "No Cell Phone" Pedestrian Lanes

rebelwarlock Why stop there? (46 comments)

We should also have a lane for those damned elderly and children. They can't walk for shit, either.


Comcast Allegedly Asking Customers to Stop Using Tor

rebelwarlock Prove it (379 comments)

Comcast is exclusively run by assholes, but I'm not seeing any proof of this statement. People shouldn't get all up in arms about this claim until there's some evidence. I'm sure as hell not going to take some random asshole's word on it - I wouldn't even trust him to tell me if it's raining outside or not.


Oculus Rift CEO Says Classrooms of the Future Will Be In VR Goggles

rebelwarlock The worst use of VR ever (179 comments)

Yes, let's strap on VR goggles all day for classes which aren't enhanced in even the smallest way by VR. Hell, why stop there? Keep them on constantly. It'll be great when grocery shopping.


Paypal Jumps Into Bitcoin With Both Feet

rebelwarlock The summary is all over the place (134 comments)

What does Paypal have to do with exposing Satoshi?

As far as the main story goes, I wouldn't call it "jumping in with both feet" when they're not actually even enabling it on Paypal. They're just putting it on Braintree. While that might look like a huge investment, it fits Paypal's hobby budget pretty well.

John Romero On Reinventing the Shooter

rebelwarlock Re:Talk is cheap. (266 comments)

That's pretty much my attitude on it. He's not even useful as hype anymore because of how bad his reputation is now.

Should Docker Move To a Non-Profit Foundation?

rebelwarlock Why should he listen? (47 comments)

Just because you once pushed a commit doesn't mean you get to tell the owner to go non-profit.

Facebook Blamed For Driving Up Cellphone Bills, But It's Not Alone

rebelwarlock Re: I never realized how bad it was (131 comments)

I didn't factor in prepaid, so you have a cheaper plan than I do. Mine is from Fetnet, at 599.

Facebook Blamed For Driving Up Cellphone Bills, But It's Not Alone

rebelwarlock I never realized how bad it was (131 comments)

Have you ever seen documentaries where poor people have to spend hours every day getting clean water, and it just makes you step back and realize how fucking easy you have it to have clean water on tap at all times? That's how I feel looking at the cellphone data situation in the US. I'm paying for the single cheapest cellphone plan I can get here in Taiwan, and I get 1.5gb of data with that. And that limit only kicks in after the first six months of free unlimited data expires.

Sure, the facebook design is absolutely retarded, but I don't come close to my limit despite using facebook as a primary means of communication with most of my friends and family. Point your anger in the right direction.

Changing the Rules of a 15-Year-Old Game: Quake Live Update Causes Controversy

rebelwarlock Re:alarmingly vacant? (170 comments)

That's down from 16,000,000 a couple years ago. So yes, that's a major loss.

The Apache Software Foundation Now Accepting BitCoin For Donations

rebelwarlock Who cares? (67 comments)

It's not exactly a magical leap powered by unicorns and fairies to have a bitcoin wallet. You might as well say they're using CSS pseudoclasses - it would be exactly as newsworthy.

Dell's New Alienware Case Goes to Extremes To Prevent Overheating

rebelwarlock Re:Ineffective advertising (149 comments)

That's a whole lot of salt. You must be mad that no one liked your favorite brand's advertisement.

Dell's New Alienware Case Goes to Extremes To Prevent Overheating

rebelwarlock Ineffective advertising (149 comments)

The only way this could have been more blatant of an advertisement is if they had put in a preorder link. Even if it wasn't, their "controlled gap" is just a corner that juts out so you can't push it up against the wall properly. It's just not very impressive in terms of, well, anything.

Besides, I'm pretty sure the slashdot crowd builds their own rigs anyway.

Coffee Naps Better For Alertness Than Coffee Or Naps Alone

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

rebelwarlock She feeds off attention (1262 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.

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."
