Afraid Someone Will Steal Your Game Design Idea?

rogabean Re:"Board game designer"? (140 comments)

Board Games especially of the hobby kind are on quite a come back right now. Myself I own over 100 now and have a regular group of people who meet up twice a week to play. There is a lot of money to be made (take a look at the Zombicide kickstarters! we are talking millions). But board game designers / publishers have always been a self regulating crowd. No one wants to be the person who stole an idea. Keep in mind that really it's the theme that can be stolen. Mechanics are borrowed on a regular basis.

Correct. I read the submission as he is looking for Proxy support on wifi connections, NOT tethering to another device.

Ask Slashdot: Which Android Phone (and Carrier) For WiFi Proxy Support?

rogabean Root the phone and profit! (125 comments)

Wifi Proxy Support isn't available on any Android phone that I am aware of by default. CyanogenMod supports it out of the box and as a result so does MIUI. But you will need to root the phone for this. Only way I know of. I use it on my MyTouch 4G (running MIUI) without any real issues.

Historic Pairing: Shuttle Docked To the ISS

rogabean Re:Oblig. (133 comments)

Me too. All of NASA's "photos" always look fake to me. (not in the conspiracy way, just in the "we doctored these up a bit too much" way)

Microsoft Ready To "Take On'' Google and Apple TV

rogabean Re:Netflix (182 comments)

You aren't the only one. I have a Windows 7 Media Center that does just this. OTA DVR. If one of these "boxes" could get that functionality I'd jump on it it quickly.

Can Apps Really Damage a Cellular Network?

rogabean Re:what? (309 comments)

iPhone 4 is missing the 1700 frequency for the uplink, so it's a no go for T-Mobile 3G as well.

Can Apps Really Damage a Cellular Network?

rogabean Re:what? (309 comments)

Yes. I'm one of those 300,000. Edge only. While that is a lot of phones, I'm having a hard time believing they impact the network anywhere close to all of the 3G phones they have.

UK's Two Biggest ISPs Rip Up Net Neutrality

rogabean Re:What's with this app horsedookie? (225 comments)

I can see your point on the fact we call every portable device that stores/play music these days an MP3 player... I can't remember when I last used an MP3 file... then again I don't think I call my iPod an MP3 player... I call it an iPod. On the subject of apps though.. I just assume they mean appetizers. I'm still waiting on my phone to give me those damn mozzarella sticks I asked for.

Verizon Confirms Plan To Switch Away From Unlimited Data Plans

rogabean Re:Bait and switch (207 comments)

Same with T-Mobile. They say unlimited, but they really mean 5GB. I suppose one could argue it's still unlimited as they cut you down to below Edge speeds after that without extra charges, but at that point I'd say you're pretty much cut off as it's not really good for anything. I'm curious what does Verizon do after the cap? Is it a cut-off, extra charges, or throttle you down to next to nothing?

Researchers Say Happiness Costs $75K

rogabean Re:Mathmatics of dissatisfaction (772 comments)

Not everyone has parents who can afford to save the money it takes for college. My mom raised 6 kids and worked 3 jobs that didn't pay that well. Saving was out of the question for all of us. I went the student loan route and it sucks paying it back, but I won't complain. I made the decision for myself at the time. I did not however do as some of my friends did and take student loans for tuition + living expenses. I only took what I needed for tuition and held a job in order to support myself. I know you aren't trying to bait, but your first comment is a bit condescending and assuming don't you think? Also 6 figures and you find it hard saving while single? I make 35k/year, 31 years old and I'm single, live in a major city and still manage to save some here and there.
