Throttle Shared Users With OS X — Is It Possible?

riff420 check dis out: (403 comments)

chmod the files so that only the appropriate user has read/write, and that the boss' son has read access. only allow him to replace the files in a different directory, so that you can evaluate the changes.

Obama DOJ Sides With RIAA Again In Tenenbaum

riff420 Re:Hope and Change, baby! (528 comments)

Amen. I'm fucking sick of people blaming things on Obama just because he's in office while it's happening. I'm not even talking about the war, specifically. It's not like HE made the decision(s).

Nintendo Wii To Get Netflix Streaming

riff420 Re:The disc is DRM (213 comments)

No. That's why they have Netflix accounts. Clearly the Netflix streaming application is bigger than the NAND storage capacity, or at least takes up more "blocks" than any given user is willing to dedicate to this.

Nintendo Wii To Get Netflix Streaming

riff420 Dear Submitting Slashdot Reader (213 comments)

"Why should I be required to dedicate my disc slot to stream a movie?" For that matter, why should you be required to dedicate your disc slot to play a game? Don't they know I instead could be KEEPING THINGS IN THERE, LIKE SHOPPING LISTS, OR MAYBE THAT PS2 GAME I LOST THE CASE FOR. JESUS FUCKING CHRIST ARE YOU SERIOUSLY WHINING ABOUT THIS? Want to watch a Netflix movie on your Wii? Shut the fuck up and put in the disc. Or drop it onto your favorite USB loader and shut the hell up already.

Weird Al also creates original songs. Around half of his music is original. Get your head out of your ass.

NASA's LCROSS Spacecraft Discovers Life On Earth

You've got to be kidding. Obviously it is implying that it has possibly detected vegetation, not that it has detected possible vegetation.

New Star Trek Trailer

riff420 Re:Fuck Star Trek, Here Comes Watchmen! (591 comments)

Are you fucking serious? There's something wrong with your setup, Homey. It works fine for me, and I'm using (as if you needed to guess) Firefox! Maybe you're on a 64-bit machine? If that's the case, Adobe released 64bit flash today. It works real nicely. If you're on 32-bit then you're doing something very, very wrong.
