The Joys and Hype of Hadoop

slashdice More accurate (55 comments)

You're better off using k to process your data.

Source: we replaced hadoop with k. After a couple weeks of training, I was getting results faster than the high-priced hadoop contractors (most of them worked on the hadoop codebase, had written hadoop books, etc).

Uber Banned In Delhi After Taxi Driver Accused of Rape

slashdice Re:rename it (180 comments)

well, our outsourced indian slashdice developers are too busy raping and working on slashdot beta to implement that feature. Mike Durney, our CEO, actually went over there to discuss unicode support but, well, he was raped, too. So bringing it up with him is a bit of a sore spot (no pun intended!)

Uber Banned In Delhi After Taxi Driver Accused of Rape

slashdice Re:Sadly,... (180 comments)

Since we outsourced all web development work to india (probably couldn't tell, could you?), we asked our slashdice indians for their thoughts on the matter. They said (don't downvote the messenger!) that indians are half black, half asian -- they love to rape but have small dicks. When you consider those two factors, we should just be glad the situation isn't worse!

Apple Accused of Deleting Songs From iPods Without Users' Knowledge

slashdice lol (250 comments)

Kind of funny how most of the articles bury (if they even mention it at all) Real (buffering) Network's connection. To put everything in context, The iPod could play unprotected mp3s, aacs, and wavs. They could also play FairPlay DRM files purchased through the iTunes store. Real (buffering) Networks wanted to sell music that could play on iPods but they also wanted their DRM.

Fuck you DRM, and fuck you Real (buffering) Networks. Good riddance to both of you.

Comcast Forgets To Delete Revealing Note From Blog Post

slashdice I know what you mean! (114 comments)

Why just today, we clicked the wrong button! Instead of deleting Bennett Hasselton's inane ramblings, it got pushed to the slashdice front page! Our bad! We were going to fire samzenpus but it turns out he's just a perl script and the perl programmers we hired from dice.com were actually pearl brogrammers and can't figure out how to fix it.

slashdice Attn: Scott Sales: (525 comments)

Try some general aviation. 150+ mph is faster than 85 mph. And no fucking cops, either.

FAA Report Says Near Collisions With Drones On the Rise

slashdice Birds (115 comments)

Are you retarded? Bird strikes are a real problem (remember Chesley Sullenberger landing that plane on the Hudson river?). Once you consider general aviation aircraft (which outnumber "full size airplanes") it becomes much more serious.

Protip: if you're flying a drone/rc aircraft/whatever near a fucking class B airport you're violating several existing regulations, which is to say it has been a restricted activity for decades.

As Amazon Grows In Seattle, Pay Equity For Women Declines

slashdice Re:Here we go again (496 comments)

Don't forget homophobic! I remember back in the day when linux was the alternative OS for people with alternative lifestyles. I guess GLBT crowd went mac and linux was overtaken by jocks and religious types. And with Android, Linux may have "won" but the loser wasn't Microsoft, it was Linux users. I say it's time to bring the glory (hole) back to linux. June 9th (that's 6/9) should be Hug your LUG day -- a day when linux users can go to their Linux User Group and have some good old fashioned gay sex.

HTML5: It's Already Everywhere, Even In Mobile

slashdice Re:Can someone expolain what's so great about HTML (133 comments)

Because most web programmers are retards with goldfish level awareness of the past and don't realize they're trying to reinvent the wheel, only this time with more square. But it's asynchronous (aka cooperative multitasking) so that makes it better, somehow.
