Firefox 30 Available, Firebug 2.0 Released

reub2000 Re:Please, please just stop... (270 comments)

They just copied the things that work, you know like faster handling of javascript, and not taking up half the screen with useless toolbars. They took what worked and put their own spin on it, and it looks very different from chrome. It would be a fine browser if they could squash a few bugs.

Professors: US "In Denial" Over Poor Maths Standards

reub2000 Re:danger will robinson (688 comments)

Appears that the error doesn't appear in the original. The use of quotation marks would lead one to believe that it's a direct quote, but it looks like it was altered to add the part about South America.

reub2000 Re:Write to Mozilla CTO Andreas Gal, he's responsi (403 comments)

Flash is no longer required to play video on many websites. Most youtube videos currently play in the html5 player. This is just a step backwards.

Mozilla Ditches Firefox's New-Tab Monetization Plans

reub2000 Re:That's not who we are at Mozilla (195 comments)

No I tried that. I'm not sure why I'm supposed to care about a browser. Is it like a puppy that will end up euthanized at the city shelter if I abandon it?

Mozilla Ditches Firefox's New-Tab Monetization Plans

reub2000 Re:That's not who we are at Mozilla (195 comments)

You forgot the part where it doesn't completly close and you have to terminate the process before opening a new window. I've switched to QupZilla.

As Species Decline, So Do the Scientists Who Name Them

reub2000 Re:It's not dead, it's evolving (76 comments)

And until you sequence the DNA from a dimetrodon, looking at physical features will be the best you can do for the vast majority of species that have ever lived.

The $100,000 Device That Could Have Solved Missing Plane Mystery

reub2000 Re:Does it really cost $100k? (461 comments)

How do you know the plane is in the ocean? It's certainly possible that it crashed into one of the islands in the area.

The $100,000 Device That Could Have Solved Missing Plane Mystery

reub2000 Re:Does it really cost $100k? (461 comments)

Most people involved in an airplane crash survive the accident. If paramedics could find the crash quickly, it's likely more people would survive. So it would make air travel a tiny bit safer.

Debian Technical Committee Votes For Systemd Over Upstart

reub2000 Re:Incorrect summary. (379 comments)

I need a term that differentiates things like android or my roku box from systems running glibc and X11 or wayland. I think GNU/Linux works for that.

Open Data Tells NYC Residents Where the Rats Are

reub2000 Re:Thankfully it's NYC (93 comments)

Somehow I doubt that fear of certain animals are ingrained in our DNA. Certain animals are considered pests or cute based on personal experience and cultural factors. Certainly I consider snakes to be scary, while many people consider them to be good pets.

Google Chrome 32 Is Out: Noisy Tabs Indicators, Supervised Users

reub2000 Re:Make mine block all 3 (141 comments)

Chrome/Chromium allows you to create a whitelist of sites that are allowed to use plugins. Flashblock for firefox does the same thing. Since very few ads use the audio or video tags, blocking flash effectively blocks noise.

Blocking flash (or simply not installing it) achieves that goal.

Red Hat To Help Develop CentOS

reub2000 Re:Makes sense, but weird (186 comments)

The question is, how will RH help Centos? That isn't very clear from this announcement.

Help them reduce the lag between the time something is released for RHEL and CentOS.
