Ubuntu 10.10 Beta Released

socheres fan control ? (291 comments)

i wonder if it has some acpi fan control for my lenovo s10
i am forced to use windows xp especially late at night in bed as some user has written a hack for windows that corrects the acpi temperature values so my lil' laptop wont sound like a boeing...
i tried several linux hacks including but not limited to lmsensors and thinkfan but they don't work for me :(

StarCraft II Cost $100 Million To Develop

socheres Maybe.. (414 comments)

Maybe the reason for not including LAN play is that they want to make it harder to reverse engineer the network code ? they sued the makers of bnetd in the days of starcraft 1 .

Verizon Charged Marine's Widow an Early Termination Fee

socheres Re:What does being a widow have to do with anythin (489 comments)

he did not die defending anyones freedom.
i really see many of you swallowed the pill and speak the language of the television.
he died while being part of an INVADING/ATTACKING FORCE, outside your borders, while taking part in operations that involve many many things but NOT protecting YOUR freedom.

EVEN in the eventuality that you may consider that america invading countries to steal they shit is beneficial to the US economy or whatever,that STILL does not do anything to protect your freedom.

Verizon Charged Marine's Widow an Early Termination Fee

socheres Re:Simple really... (489 comments)

their daily profits are going to plummet from several hundred million dollars to several hundred million dollars minus one...=/

get a grip man with this old argument, as it may be true for a small pizzeria but really for a big corp. i think no amount of bad publicity can seriously affect profits.
you are not goint to see mass terminations because they are bound by contracts, you will not see decreased calling volumes and the subscription rate will probably only decrease with a a couple or percents in certain cities.

Ubisoft's DRM Cracked — For Real This Time

socheres Re:Not so fast (443 comments)

i don't see how this nullifies the claim of skid row.
anyone trying to hack ac2 would have gotten to the values.
both the russian and skidrow used the values but they had different approaches.

Ubisoft's DRM Cracked — For Real This Time

socheres Re:There WILL be unbreakable DRM, heres how: (443 comments)

i know everybody likes to think that this is like the near future.
but i doubt it. i think the input lag games are going to suffer from will be quite big and that will make this kind of platforms only usable for lego games or something. maybe wow...

Hubble Builds 3D Dark Matter Map

socheres Re:Nice pretty picture (177 comments)

where are my mod points when i need them....
anyway, i guess people cannot be forced to think it through with their own heads man.
this dark matter-black hole nonsense is so stupid that i can't imagine how people who otherwise have an extended vocabulary and generally present signs of intelligence still can suck that stuff up and not throw up...
we are stupid and religious. i hate humans.

Open Source Is Not a Democracy

socheres Re:-1 Troll (641 comments)

well then, so if contributors don't get to vote, in this democracy that you speak of (in which they fork, don't vote) them maybe they can revoke the right to use their contributed code ?...

ah that's not possible either.. and i guess this time a law of nature will be invoked instead of the concept of democracy.

screw you guys, i'm going home :)

Datacenter HDD wipe policy

socheres socheres writes  |  about 4 months ago

socheres (1771002) writes "Hi Slashdot! I keep a Slackware server hosted at various datacenters on leased hardware for personal / freelance business use. I have been doing this for the last 10 years and during this time I moved my stuff to several datacenters, some small and some big name companies. No matter the hosting company, since I choose to install my own OS and not take a pre-installed machine, I always got the hardware delivered with the previous guys' data stored on the hard drives. It was also the case with spare drives, which were not installed new if I did not ask specifically for new ones. Has this happened to you ? How often ?"
