rogoshen1 Re:Respect for Trying! (214 comments)

yeah but for the C-level type A personality, money is just a yardstick. It's not the goal in and of itself.

Top Five Theaters Won't Show "The Interview" Sony Cancels Release

rogoshen1 Re:This nation is run by idiots (578 comments)

The DOD tried procuring stiff upper lips. But the analyst contractors they hired put together a 30 minute power point presentation outlining the how and why they were incompatible with our current military strategy. Ending with the simple fact that a retrofit would slash everyone's budget across the board.

So, this is what we get.

Top Five Theaters Won't Show "The Interview" Sony Cancels Release

rogoshen1 Re:In other words (578 comments)

Yeah.. after a real, actual shooting (Dark Knight Rises) a few years ago -- people still went and saw it. An actual, physical event, with a body count, and it did not scare people away. Copycats be damned.

this is just sad. Sony perhaps looking for a reason to pull the movie to save face (IE, they know it's shit.)

A Domain Registrar Is Starting a Fiber ISP To Compete With Comcast

rogoshen1 Holy Crap (65 comments)

Tucows is still around??? I remember downloading crap from them in 1995. A quick google shows that not much has changed in the intervening 19 years.

Does their fiber service come with the signature bloatware as well?

(Side note, it's interesting to see internet companies that ostensibly have no reason to exist, yet are still alive and .. sorta-kinda-maybe-kicking today. Lycos for example. I'm frankly gobsmacked that they might wind up outliving their labby mascot. Or askjeeves, no quasi-witty joke needed.)

Linking Drought and Climate Change: Difficult To Do

rogoshen1 This thread will not result in a flame war (194 comments)

bizarro slashdot
Nope, no sir. Headlines like this are in no way shape or form fodder for the 'deniers'; which then causes the 'believers' to come out in droves. This thread will absolutely be filled to the brim with insightful, informed conversation.

Waze Causing Anger Among LA Residents

rogoshen1 Re:Sympton of a bigger problem (593 comments)

The other component to the urban sprawl thing is the pattern in which the development occurs.

Some real estate developer will get his mitts on a tract of land, and develop a subdivision -- access to and from this new sub-division is kind of a "step 2: ???" process. So you can wind up with many randomly placed subdivisions with or without proper arterial connections to the rest of the city. and it's a clusterfuck.

I'm looking at you Phoenix.
