rimugu XPrivacy (324 comments)

You mean not everyone is using XPrivacy already?! Ok, live and learn. Like when I actually first saw an ad in an android phone, mine never shows one.

Meet Firefox's Built-In PDF Reader

rimugu Re:There are real problems to solve first, Mozilla (257 comments)

You have to be kidding.

Menu bar, Firefox Menu/Options/Menu bar
Status bar, Ctrl+/

You have already been answered about protocol, and I have not seen poor performance, memory usage could be better, but it is clear you are ignorant of Firefox and blowing it out of proportion.

Oracle To Give OpenOffice.org To Apache Incubator

rimugu Aren't Oracle and Apache at odds about Harmony (129 comments)

Aren't Oracle and Apache at odds about Harmony

After all, Oracle did all it could to kill Apache Harmony.
Why would Apache take OpenOffice like that! It may be a trap and it wouldn't be the first time.

Potentially Great Sci-fi Films Still Due In 2011

rimugu Re:Lets face it (342 comments)

The near-immortal psychic robot is not part of the original trilogy. Is part of the despicable books that came before to link it to the robots series. (which are less awful that the gaia bullshit that came to illustrate the future after the original trilogy)

A Half-Gigabyte View of the Moon

rimugu You won't be able to see the moon landing site (112 comments)

Off course you won't be able to see the moon landing site.
Some will tell you is because of resolution.
I say it is because New Mexico is not in the moon.

What’s the Internet? (on 1994's Today Show)

rimugu Re:h-t-t-p colon slash slash (262 comments)

You may be young and not be aware that are other things besides http.
Back in the day ftp, telnet, gopher, where common stuff, you had to specify to avoid confusion.
Right now," www" is not even necessary in most of the case.
Have you ever wondered why this site has the name it has? It is because of the slash slash and the dot (in those days there were more .edu and .org than .com assuming .com was not your first assumption)

Google Researcher Issues How-To On Attacking XP

rimugu Re:Is this really 'do no harm'? (348 comments)

Wait, are you saying McDonalds is not evil?
I thought it was the sole responsible for fattening up everybody. That alone makes it more evil than Burger King and Microsoft combined.
Oh, sorry you are saying that McDonalds could or could not be evil, just not because an employee is evil.
Hold it, what if the employee robs a bank because of brain damage obtained of all the fat and the "would you like fries" he got at McDonalds?

Food Activist's Life Becomes The Life of Brian

rimugu Re:A Question Is Answered (165 comments)

That does not prevent the idolizing of politicians, individually or as a party.
President or party Messiah anyone?

It does not prevent the abuse of the state, just warranties that state has a monopoly on certain kids of abuse.
School teachers accused of pederasty with immunity of prosecution anyone?

Not that I don't support "the separation between church and state. Is like separating good and evil." (That comes form a cartoon of wizard of Id, and cannot help but quote it here).

Venezuela Bans Hostile Videogames and Toys

rimugu Re:Great, but don't go overboard (335 comments)

>Okay, conspiracy theorists. If we are in the "Brave New World", where the fuck is my free drugs and obligatory orgies?

Haven't you seen the education and the fashion being promoted this days. Anyone advocating against drugs and orgies, is ridiculed. We may not be in "Brave New World" already, but we cannot be far.

PA School Spied On Students Via School-Issued Laptop Webcams

rimugu You are cutting yourself with the razor (941 comments)

You are cutting yourself with the razor.
That is not what "Occam's Razor" is or how it is used.

Occam's Razor is the principle that "entities must not be multiplied beyond necessity".

Not the principle of doubting the capacity of the media (that should be common sense).

Carriers, Manufacturers Are Strangling Android

rimugu Good I have a Nokia 5530 (306 comments)

Good I have a Nokia 5530, unbranded, unlocked, prepaid chip. No GPS and no 3G (I have a stand alone GPS for when I really need it and 3G is too expensive).
I use the wifi to browse, check mail, play music, read books, keep my agenda, some games, light office applications use, and only occasionally the phone features.
Nokia gets updates from time to time and I can even change it to get the updates of other zones (not officially tough)

Symbian S60 5th may not be the best of the best. But ranks in the top 5. And for 150USD it cost me less than my previous phone.

Corporations Now Have a Right To "Personal Privacy"

rimugu Free speech for corporations? (371 comments)

Free speech for corporations? Either that is not true, or is just for profit corporations.
The government (in the USA anyway) has a long story of trying to shut down non for profit corporations that dare to say that a certain candidate is no good.

You can picture airports and not show "real" id

rimugu rimugu writes  |  about 4 years ago

rimugu (701444) writes "You can picture airports and not show "real" id, thanks Phillip Mocek
Phil Mocek was arrested by Albuquerque police at a TSA checkpoint at the Albuquerque International Sunport on November 15, 2009. He had a valid ticket on Southwest Airlines, and was attempting to get to his flight. Mr. Mocek sought to exercise his Federally and Constitutionally-guaranteed right to travel, but was arrested by local police for alleged violations of state and local laws and ordinances.
So far as we know, this is the first time someone in the USA has been arrested or charged with a crime for attempting to exercise their right to travel by air without showing ID or answering questions about themselves or their trip, or for photography or audio or video recording at a TSA checkpoint."
