Root of Maths Genius Sought

sneezinglion Re:Wondering... (251 comments)

"Mathematics" is a singular word, not a plural.

Do not confuse an 's' on the end of a word as making it plural.
Otherwise, 'this', 'as', 'was', would all be plural, and they are not.

iPhone Apparently Open To Old Wi-Fi Attack

sneezinglion Re:iPhone can forget old networks (90 comments)

Yeah, there is no way I have found to forget a network if it has been turned off, other than putting up your own "fake" network and then removing it.

Too bad I did not know this so I could create a list of every public network I ever attached to.

Blizzard's Unannounced 'Titan' MMO Rebooted, Development Team Reduced

sneezinglion Re:Where have I heard this before? (193 comments)

How was it great?

I was a huge fan of StarCraft, and was disappointed with StarCraft2.
Because to my eye, it was the same game with better graphics.

sneezinglion Heinlein Prediction.... (130 comments)

Didn't Heinlein predict this as what people did to mimic the Howard families longevity? I think he wrote about it in "Time Enough For Love"

sneezinglion "totally new like the ipod" (327 comments)

Say what? Exactly what was totally new about the ipod?

I suppose you could say the design of the case was new, but MP3 players were out before the iPod.

sneezinglion Re:Screenshot (78 comments)

Hmmmmm to be honest I saw nothing new in that video. IT looked like a pretty standard interface with some added buttons and such.

Nothing that could not be done in say....FVWM for instance.

NASA Sticking To Imperial Units For Shuttle Replacement

Esther Dyson Grudgingly Defends Internet Anonymity

sneezinglion Re:Why Not? (516 comments)

But the same could be said of abortion.

No, the nonliving mass of cells in the woman's uterus doesn't count.

I think the problem some people have with abortion is that it IS a living mass of cells

I think what you meant to say is the non-self aware mass of cells in the woman's uterus does not count.

Red Hat and Novell sued over patent infringement

sneezinglion sneezinglion writes  |  more than 7 years ago

sneezinglion writes "Red Hat and Novell are being sued over patent violations in Linux.
From The Article:

Companies called IP Innovation and Technology Licensing Corporation sued Red Hat and Novell on Tuesday, claiming the top Linux sellers' software products infringe U.S. patent 5,072,412, "User interface with multiple workspaces for sharing display system objects," and two identically named patents. The suit (PDF), in the U.S. District Court in Eastern Texas, seeks damages and a permanent injunction prohibiting any further infringement.
Perhaps as the article states, the next SCO is here!
All hail our new litigious masters!"

Inventor hopes to sell armour suit to the military By Wade Hemsworth The Hamilton Spectator (Jan 11, 2007) The grizzly man is back, and this time he's ready to take on bullets and bombs. Troy Hurtubise, the Hamilton-born inventor who became famous for his bulky bear-protection suit by standing in front of a moving vehicle to prove it worked, has now created a much slimmer suit that he hopes will soon be protecting Canadian soldiers in Afghanistan and U.S. soldiers in Iraq."
