Hot Springs At Yellowstone Changed Their Color Due To Tourist Activity

ruir Re:Public land closures (29 comments)

I also been to a natural cave, one of the 7th wonders in the world, they say, where you clearly can see they also go further on. The thing, that due to abuses in the past, only people with special authorisations, mainly people conducting investigations can get permits from the government. The general public is restricted to the 1s km.

Study: Red Light Cameras Don't Improve Safety

ruir Re:Old news. (257 comments)

I used to drive next to the other car when I started driving...it was disruptive enough for a novice driver to have idiots fill up that space. Nowadays, I am more generous in space, and often in a while someone will fill that spot often in a while. Such is the dynamic of the traffic. However I prefer to drive safe than be another idiot on the road.

Staples: Breach May Have Affected 1.16 Million Customers' Cards

ruir Re:Honestly (97 comments)

People are cutting corners, not willing to pay seasoned professionals and outsourcing service to clueless IT "professionals" in the 3rd world... so none of this is exactly unexpected.

Hackers Used Nasty "SMB Worm" Attack Toolkit Against Sony

ruir You got what you deserve (168 comments)

When you are dumb enough to use operating systems insecure by design. And the whole NK attacked us, seems just to be a political manoeuvre, smoke and mirrors to distract us from the fact Sony is not the best example of corporate governance, has been making huge PR moves, and Windows is worse than a swiss cheese when it takes to security.

Anyone Can Now Launch Their Own Version of the Pirate Bay

ruir Malware bay (79 comments)

The highlights of (old) pirate bay were the reputation as some already said, AND the user comments about the download. Without that, the usefulness of having the torrents replicated is so much less useful.

Where they talk about targeting Windows boxes both in the editorial and the slashdot post. How refreshing. This publication is mile aheads of the ass-licking Microsoft of Zdnet and pcworld.

The Pirate Bay Responds To Raid

ruir Re:The Pirate Bay (302 comments)

I have to wonder how people enjoy going to the theatre. Besides being a dirty environment, there are the idiots around talking and eating, it can get expensive for the whole family, and on top of that you get rammed down your throat at least one hour of adverts. And I cannot get the attraction when I have TV at home...

The Pirate Bay Responds To Raid

ruir Re:The Pirate Bay (302 comments)

You got it backwards. The twit is you. It is not entitlement, it is after all a free market. Which by the way, the media companies prefer not to follow the rules, and charge insane prices for a piece of plastic made by 50c in the asian continent by indentured people.

ruir Re:The Pirate Bay (302 comments)

Actually, two of our major futebol stadiums sit next to residential areas, and people make a chunk of profit renting them or allowing people on their verandas on major games. Last time I checked, no action was taken against them

They do not have any damn issues, grow up. It is just that when it is not convenient, it is the MPAA or some other dummy doing it instead of "sony".

Eric Schmidt: To Avoid NSA Spying, Keep Your Data In Google's Services

ruir For sure. (281 comments)

Why not keep the data in the police station? I am sure it would work better than at googles. Is this article a freaking joke? It is not the 1st of April yet last time I checked.
