HTML5: It's Already Everywhere, Even In Mobile

rebelwarlock What's the point of his rant? (132 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.

What's frightening about your comment is that it's hard to tell if you're joking or not.

You're connecting directly to people's IP addresses! For fuck's sake, guys! Are you even trying to make it anonymous anymore?

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.

Tetris Is Hard To Test

rebelwarlock How I know it's an ad (169 comments)

Just one line in the summary gives it away:

As I explain in this article, the game is filled with special cases that rarely occur in normal play, and these can only be easily found with the help of a coverage tool.

This doesn't seem like news to me! I'm shocked and appalled!

An Algorithm to End the Lines for Ice at Burning Man

rebelwarlock I don't care about Burning Man (342 comments)

I'm just here to read the comments about what an utter piece of shit Bennet Hasselhoff is. Seriously, Ben 10 is the least qualified person to write about anything. I'd rather ask a hobo for advice, because at least then I'd be asking and not assaulted with random horseshit from Chris Benoit.

Living On a Carbon Budget: The End of Recreation As We Know It?

rebelwarlock Stop owning cars (652 comments)

That would solve so many problems. Never going to happen, but since we're talking about making people do silly bullshit because it's cheaper, let's make a list:

- Don't have any pets. They aren't strictly necessary anyway. Sure, they improve our quality of life and many studies show they can increase our lifespan, but fuck that noise.
- Only eat Government Mandated Nutrient Paste. Taste receptors? What are you, a hedonist?
- No more chairs, sofas, etc. You shouldn't be relaxing anyway. Any time spent not working is wasted, and you can work standing. Speaking of which...
- Observe Government Mandated Sleeping Hours. We need you to sleep the exact minimum amount of time to not be worthless.

I could go on, but why bother? This guy is such a complete moron, he probably doesn't even realize my list isn't a collection of sincere advice.

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."
