An Algorithm to End the Lines for Ice at Burning Man

sanosuke001 Re: Agner Krarup Erlang - The telephone in 1909! (329 comments)

Yeah, my first thought was "one queue for tokens and another location for pickup using the single-queue-to-multiple-registers". This blog post was more along the lines of, "durr, me like ice, get now" than an actual "algorithm."

"Double Irish" Tax Loophole Used By US Companies To Be Closed

sanosuke001 Re:Why..... (259 comments)

I completely agree. I wasn't trying to say how it should be, just how law defined how they decided what you owed. If you have no profits locally you owe nothing. The "see-no-profits" game is a completely different bullshit loophole. They should get rid of income tax and increase sales/property tax to compensate or use something like the APT tax.

"Double Irish" Tax Loophole Used By US Companies To Be Closed

sanosuke001 Re:Why..... (259 comments)

Because taxes are used for paying for municipal/government protections, services, etc. If they have no physical entity then why should they pay for these things? It's not that simple, is all.

Co-Founder of PayPal Peter Thiel: Society Is Hostile To Science and Technology

sanosuke001 Dislike != Distrust (238 comments)

I would say that they distrust it, not dislike. It is also expensive to implement over something that has been used for decades and since they see things more short term than long term, the savings aren't seen so upgrading is deemed not worth the cost and training.

Where is the info that this is what's happening? It looks like from Level3's blog that they've offered to pay for more interconnects to Verizon's router?

Researchers Find Evidence of How Higgs Particle Imparts Mass

sanosuke001 Billions or Trillions (91 comments)

So, one in 100 trillion proton-proton collisions exhibit this trait or whatever they're looking for but they only searched "billions"? I guess 100 trillion = 100,000 billions. Seems like they just didn't know the values they were using.

People Who Claim To Worry About Climate Change Don't Cut Energy Use

sanosuke001 Re:Electric card (710 comments)

Or maybe they know their electricity comes from a source they're okay with? (nuclear, solar, wind, hydro) I know mine comes from nuclear and I'm okay with that.

House Majority Leader Defeated In Primary

sanosuke001 Re:Primaries themselves are bullshit (932 comments)

Exactly, allow anyone who meets certain criteria to run (so we don't have 300 names on a ballot) but do not force only 1 Republican, 1 Democrat, 1 Green, etc. Also, stop allowing money contributions; public funds only so everyone is on the same level playing field. Hell, stop listing their party affiliation altogether; list their viewpoints on major key issues (a touchscreen so you can scan through each candidate would be nice but a reference packet you can borrow would work as well). We should be doing everything we can to limit people just dumping money into a race and washing their competitors out of the public consciousness, attacking to excess (like Cantor tried to do), or not being able to effectively run against someone for not being rich as well as not allowing people to just walk in, search for the one R/D/G, choose blindly, then say "good enough." People should be informed and we shouldn't be helping them be lazy.

Netflix Ditches Silverlight For HTML5 On Macs

sanosuke001 Re:Linux soon? (202 comments)

Can't you just get a browser-id-changing-plugin and tell it you're using mac? I didn't RTFA and don't know what it does under the hood but if its just a "turn it on for this OS" and no other special installable bit, it should work?

Major ISPs Threaten To Throttle Innovation and Slow Network Upgrades

sanosuke001 Separate Hardware from Services (286 comments)

Just separate each companies' hardware from its services and make two companies, the hardware side being a Title II Common Carrier. Then, anyone, including the former companies' services division can now buy wholesale access and sell their services.

The infrastructure is expensive and it isn't feasible for more than one or two companies to install lines to every home. Have one utility company install the lines and sell to the services companies. It should have been done years ago.

FCC Chairman Will Reportedly Revise Broadband Proposal

This, completely. Separate their infrastructure business from their services business, make the first a CC and tell them to sell at wholesale to anyone that wants to play ball.

Richard Stallman Answers Your Questions

sanosuke001 Free Hardware? (394 comments)

Why did he keep assuming that the free hardware questions referred to "documented hardware" and not free hardware as he stated? When I think of free hardware I think of free designs that I can build myself with the right tools. In effect, it is documented hardware by default. Why assume the commenter didn't know what they were talking about? It seemed kind of mean-spirited.

Penny Arcade Sells Out

sanosuke001 sanosuke001 writes  |  more than 2 years ago

sanosuke001 writes "Penny Arcade has taken the crowdfunding idea from the other direction; try to fund an existing, and already successful, operation via their fans. With 29 days to go they have already passed their initial goal of $250,000 USD and are on their way to reaching some very interesting stretch goals including new Lookouts and Automata strips, an ad-free penny-arcade.com, revived podcast, and my personal favorite: Jerry Holkins cosplay which will be decided on by the fans.

They will be giving out some pledge goodies like t-shirts, autographed prints, digital versions of their first two books, Stream codes for Rainslick Precipice of Darkness Episode 3. For those with deep pockets: promises of twitter following, re-tweeting, an internship for a day, hang-outs with the PA crew, and even a shirt-of-the-month club, just to name a few."

1 MW E-Cat Cold Fusion Test Completed

sanosuke001 sanosuke001 writes  |  more than 2 years ago

sanosuke001 writes "Andrea Rossi's E-Cat 1MW Cold Fusion test completed in Italy with 30+ attendees including Professors from the University of Bologna, the Associated Press, NyTeknik, Focus.it, and additional physicists. The test failed to reach the 1 MW load goal, however, reached 479 kWh in looped mode. Some skepticism is still warranted as the prospective customer, although satisfied with the test, remains anonymous. According to an article at Wired (http://www.wired.co.uk/news/archive/2011-10/29/rossi-success), there has been some speculation that the covert customer could be DARPA. Also, the generator used to initialize the E-Cat device was apparently connected for the entirety of the test but assured that its output was turned off. I, for one, have a little hope in this being real but take it with a very large grain of salt."
