YouTube To Allow Self-Serve Ads For Major Media Players

screenbert Re:Replacement on "Fair Use" Videos (115 comments)

I post an informative comment that includes a personal reference.
Is the comment no longer informative? Past moderation says it is.

It still provides value to the discussion and I don't hide via an anonymous coward. Seems to be a lot like what Slashdot does by selling ads in the form of submissions.

Meanwhile those that find the video humorous get a good laugh. Those that don't can enjoy the comment.

YouTube To Allow Self-Serve Ads For Major Media Players

screenbert Replacement on "Fair Use" Videos (115 comments)

I wonder if youtube's Content ID system has a filter for fair use. I suppose technically they can go with, it's my site, I'll do what I want to.

However I have to say that it seems like a better option for the users than just removing their content.

I wonder where they would have time for advertising in this juggling video.

Linux's Role In Microsoft's Decline

screenbert Linux renaissance by Laid-off MS employees (532 comments)

Making $4 Billion in one quarter isn't much a decline. Looks like layoffs were induced by greed, so that executives stocks options go up. It would be interesting to see if some of those 4000-5000 employees use linux as a platform for a technology startup.

On the bright side if I were laid-off I'd have plenty of time to juggle.

DIY LED Array Marquee For Your PC

screenbert LED Marquees out of HP Printers (128 comments)

I already have LED Marquees all over my office. I just used this HP Printer hack to make them say whatever I want. I setup a rotating schedule so that every 10 minutes it would change the display. It still uses a TCP socket much like this one.

I think it would be cool to juggle in front GIANT LED marquees.

The Science and Physics of Back To the Future

screenbert Teleportation and aging issues. (436 comments)

Teleportation would be the next logical step to answer the moving through space issue.

However remember it involves more than moving through space. Things will last longer. According to Einstein's theory, say you were 15 years old when you left Earth in a spacecraft traveling at about 99.5% of the speed of light, and celebrated only five birthdays during your space voyage. When you get home at the age of 20, you would find that all your classmates were 65 years old, retired, and enjoying their grandchildren! Because time passed more slowly for you, you will have experienced only five years of life, while your classmates will have experienced a full 50 years.

If we get the teleportation thing down, I'll be able to add a lot more clips to my juggling video. :) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lvp8m8CqIDc

And I always thought time-travel was throwing my alarm clock against the wall.

Infinite Games?

screenbert Monkeys (356 comments)

If an infinite number of monkeys sat down and played an infinite number of games, could they take an infinite number of different storylines?

Of course then are the more important questions like:
Would you have to have an infinite number of monkey feeders to feed the infinite number of monkeys and would they care about playing games with an infinite number of different storylines?

If an infinite number of monkeys had to play an infinite number of games would they really have the "full freedom to do whatever" and if they did wouldn't they stop playing games and go out on a date?

If the infinite number of monkeys were always playing an infinite number of games, how would they be able to procreate and wouldn't that lead the the demise of the infinite number of monkeys making the whole study useless?

Man goes on mad juggling spree from Asia to London

screenbert screenbert writes  |  more than 5 years ago

screenbert writes "Screenbert became so idle that he decided juggling in 30 locations from Urfa (Just 30 minutes north of Syria) to London would be a great idea. During the process he almost gets smashed by a bus, mistaken for a beggar and jostled by street vendors. Sadly he appears to have been stung by bees in his backside throughout most of this ordeal. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lvp8m8CqIDc"

What are the best pranks you've pulled in your office?"
