sethmeisterg Re:HOW MUCH YOU WANNA BET !! (174 comments)

Huh? ECC corrects 1-bit errors and detects >1-bit errors. There is no corruption. Stop the nonsense and get off the crack pipe.

Intel Rolls Out Raspberry Pi Competitor

sethmeisterg IDIOTS!!!! (214 comments)

They totally missed the point of RPi. AFFORDABILITY and ACCESSIBILITY were the main goals. This $200 monster is neither. It will fail BIG time.

sethmeisterg You guys are hilarious! (433 comments)

You're all "The government is a bunch of liars". So even if they actually told the truth, you would never accept it. That's just awesome :).

New Tech Money, Same Old Problems

sethmeisterg Re:Meritocracy is now a problem? (372 comments)

My guess is the OP will say that taxes are not actually spent on infrastructure improvements in the area in which they live. But who cares? Caltrans spends a lot upgrading roadways all over the state. Look at the 101 project now, FFS.

Ask Slashdot: What To Do With New Free Time?

sethmeisterg Develop an identity outside of work (299 comments)

As someone who has worked for the same company for a long time, my advice is to develop your extra-work identity. Not doing that can cause you to fall into a deep depression if you should lose your job, since your personal identity will have been bound so closely.

Demand for Kopi Luwak May Be Threatening Wildlife

sethmeisterg Re:Just pay me $1000/lb and... (112 comments)

Who's to say the fermentation would take 2 weeks? I have developed a patent-pending process whereby I'm able to drop the fermentation time down to 1.5 days without affecting the taste of the final product. It is true, though, that the volume of ingestion might be a small issue, but it's worth a shit, err.. shot.

North Korea Kills Phone Line, 1953 Armistice; Kim Jong Un's Funds Found In China

sethmeisterg Re:Backing assholes. (330 comments)

When you rely on a corrupt government for the tiny amount of food that you get, you've believe just about anything they tell you to. And that's the point.
