Android Ice Cream Sandwich SDK Released

skeletor935 That's cool, but my one grip still (309 comments)

is the miserable battery life. My droid Incredible goes barely a day and a half with little to no good smartphone usage. If I use the internet or video at all the battery is gone in less than a day. I even have all the default auto-running programs deleted. I will probably go back to iphone after this just because of its incredible battery life. I had the 3g and it was amazing.

Steam Prompts OS X Graphics Update

skeletor935 Re:Mobile chips (313 comments)

Yes. Starcraft 2 runs like a champ on my MBPro in Windows XP with all the settings on high, and it runs like shit in OS X with all the settings on low.

Why Games Cost $60

skeletor935 Re:Its justified price (536 comments)

The thing I hate most is that for xbox360 (sure it's the same for PS3 but I don't own one so I don't know) every game is $60. Some games definitely deserve it like the huge RPG games with fantastic stories and voice acting and emersive worlds, the great multiplayer FPS games, and so on. Then there's the other games, which probably spent a quarter as much time in development than the much better games, and all of a sudden the developer is like "hurr hurr it's in high def and on the 360 it's worth $60" Games based off movies come to mind first-- usually terrible mock ups hashed together for insta-profit from the movie's success. Some cartoon graphic puzzle games next. And some blatantly terrible games.

R.I.P. MS-DEBUG 1981 - 2009

skeletor935 it's a trick (240 comments)

Everyone confirming or denying the presence of MS-DEBUG on their windows machine, is confirming their use of windows, and getting their precious slashdot ID number increased by 50% and a free copy of Windows 7 because MS is tired of having to keep hosting Windows 98 SP 2 updates for every time you reformat

Firefox Beta Scores 93 On Acid3 Test

skeletor935 Re:Safari and Chrome bound to get better? (282 comments)

Firefox is the slowest browser I've ever used and just sits there consuming more and more memory. Safari(for mac) and Chrome (for windows) are so much faster and lighter that I can't stand firefox.

Diebold Admits ATMs Are More Robust Than Voting Machines

skeletor935 Re:ATM's are also more secure (230 comments)

I don't think they need to be as physically secure, there's always a voting official in the room in plain sight and several other people working there. It doesn't need to be built like an ATM that will be randomly placed in dark alleys.

spring - blazeds integration suite

skeletor935 skeletor935 writes  |  more than 5 years ago Changed my flex/javaserver application to use the new spring flex integration suite from http://www.springsource.org/spring-flex as well as the spring-security package. It is a real treat to use. Very easy to use, much easier to configure and secure remote destinations than the standard flex config files.
