spire3661 Re:Welcome to the world of the Cloud... (42 comments)

Are they even talking about using enterprise principals of firewalling, local hardware with storage and security at ALL? Or is it all cloud apps with logins the whole way down?

Crytek USA Collapses, Sells Game IP To Other Developers

spire3661 Re:Not Getting Paid (115 comments)

Loyalty goes both ways. Messing up payroll breaks that bond. If you want me to be here on time and do my best work, you better have my money on time at all times. If you choose to disrespect me by not fulfilling your end of the bargain, there is no honor in staying.

Senate Bill Would Ban Most Bulk Surveillance

spire3661 Re:Alright! Go Senate bill (176 comments)

I find it interesting that ALL OF THIS is covered by the Fourth Amendment. WE shouldn't need new legislation to uphold it.

4.7 GB is NOT a lot of data in 2014, and their top 5% number is tortured at best.

Greenpeace: Amazon Fire Burns More Coal and Gas Than It Should

spire3661 Re:Hipsterism at its finest (worst?) (288 comments)

As someone who has been intensely studying sneakernet/internet parallelism i can tell you SD cards are not a great panacea. The best replacement for 3rd party clouds is PERSONAL clouds running a server at your house, over SSL. I like having the option of SD, dont get me wrong, but im not running banks of SD cards like i thought i would.

The Daily Harassment of Women In the Game Industry

spire3661 Re:Pft (962 comments)

NO ONE is ok with that. GO TO THE POLICE if that is happening. Work the problem. And you are SO ABSOLUTELY WRONG that men dont toughen up and put on flase airs at the workplace, so very very fucking wrong.

The Daily Harassment of Women In the Game Industry

spire3661 Re:Pft (962 comments)

If a woman is going to be forceful, she has to filter through the power structure JUST LIKE MEN DO. Men will resist anyone they feel is not properly ascending. Men have to filter what they say TOO.

The Daily Harassment of Women In the Game Industry

spire3661 Re:Pft (962 comments)

Men are threatened with violence in other ways. Not to be a jerk, but men get equivalent threats all the time. You cant take that kind of stuff seriously or think its a special persecution. Being a woman is just a personalized vector of attack in this situation. Women just flat out dont understand male power structures.

Where are the Writing Tablets?

spire3661 spire3661 writes  |  about 3 years ago

After fighting with my inkjet for the last time today, i came to the realization that i needed the printer solely to print out a form, write on it and then re-digitize it. After 4 smudged and blurry printouts, 4 printer head alignments and the inability to clean the heads without inserting a new yellow cartridge I am done. Its too much of a hassle to maintain an inkjet printer for casual and infrequent use. Either you use it all the time or the value proposition falls through the floor. The only true value these pieces of crap have is fast return, you can get a subpar printout now. The point of all this is, what is a good solution to integrate pen strokes into my workflow, eliminating the need to print, sign and redigitize? My first choice is a tablet with a proper digitizer. Are there any affordable solutions out there?
