Ask Slashdot: Which Router Firmware For Bandwidth Management?

stazeii Toastman Tomato (104 comments)

Toastman Tomato, far and away. Tested DDWRT, Tomato, Asus-Merlin, stock Asus... none of them, except Toastman, did everything I needed (ipv6, dns, nat local redirect, upnp/nat-pmp, etc). Been using it for over 6 months, have never been happier with a home router. That said, pretty sure they haven't patched Heartbleed yet (supposed to be coming anytime).

AMD's Piledriver To Hit 4GHz+ With Resonant Clock Mesh

stazeii Really? (286 comments)

So, are they going to give their chips porn names? Piledriver? Someone needs to clue these guys in... Just calling your stuff by construction equipment names doesn't make it cool. I'm a Mac user, and I still hate the fact Apple has latched onto this "let's call our products by their code names" crap. Guess I should look forward to the days of AMD's Cleveland Steamer processors.

Ron Paul Suggests Axing 5 U.S. Federal Departments (and Budgets)

stazeii I can only hope... (2247 comments)

That this might get some in the nerd crowd to stop falling over themselves saying how great Ron Paul is. He's nuts, like the rest of them, just a different flavor of nuts. He's useful for encouraging discussion. Beyond that...

Why Thunderbolt Is Dead In the Water

stazeii huh (568 comments)

yeah, this seems like a pretty ignorant post. Thunderbolt is not Apple (It's almost entirely Intel). It's not them trying to undermine USB3 (which is also largely Intel). And new tech is always slow to start. Who writes this crap?

Why People Watch StarCraft, Instead of Playing

stazeii Re:Cheese? (122 comments)

yes, their definition of cheese is horrible. Cheese: Though, the Korean origin is dubious at best. This is a long standing gaming term meaning to break the normal flow of the game by doing something "cheesy". =P

Ask Slashdot: How To Monitor Your Own Bandwidth Usage?

stazeii Cacti (319 comments)

My home server is running Cacti querying my Airport Extreme basestation/router. It might be a bit much for the average user, so another option would be to find a Linksys or other type router that you can run Tomato on. It'll do this type of thing.

Ask Slashdot: How Do You File Paper Documents At Home?

stazeii shred (371 comments)

Almost all of them I can get in digital form anyway, so MOST of them I glance at, then promptly shred. The ones I can't get digitally, I file in a file cabinet as I don't have a good way to digitize them at home (I could do it at work, but it's not that big a deal). How many do I actually file per year? maybe a dozen. Most of them are tax related. All the actual statements for credit cards, etc can all be retrieved digitally from the company.

Apple, Microsoft, Google Attacked For Evil Plugins

stazeii Uhh... (293 comments)

Maybe I'm missing something, but at least on the Mac, Apple/MS/Google all install plugins in /Library/Internet Plug-Ins. These work for Safari, Firefox, and I believe Opera. If Mozilla thinks this is evil, then they could just ignore plugins in that directory... but that would be a huge step backward in usability on their part. Come on Mozilla... stop coming out once a month or two and saying something dumb. "Stop being dumb!".

US Elections Dominated By Closed Source. Again.

stazeii Thing is... (403 comments)

I've still yet to see any open source alternative though. I mean, there are projects, but it seems they haven't actually developed anything to show and say "this could be an alternative, and it's secure!". It's a chicken and the egg, but counties aren't going to throw away their contracted, and expensive voting machines until there's a real alternative that they can actually know will be available next voting cycle. It's a crappy situation, but complaining it hasn't happened yet is not productive. Talk to your Senator, Congressman, etc. Except, of course, if they LIKE unverifiable voting. Then, umm, call your AG or THE National AG.

Capturing Carbon With Garbage Heaps

Capturing Carbon With Garbage Heaps

stazeii Re:Methane (186 comments)

Good, I'm glad someone said it. The whole time I'm reading this article a voice in my head is screaming "METHANE". That's what you get when you don't turn your compost, or let stuff rot without O2. This article is retarded. I mean, he has a point. Yes, remove the carbon from the chain, you can help try to balance it out. But you would have to fire it off into space to actually remove it from the chain. And that process would produce CO2, methane, etc. Just even mentioning that burning oil could be made up for by burying crops?! The guy is an idiot. Next hair-brained idea? We'd be better off doing everything we can to REDUCE methane production, and replace that with CO2 production. Methane is about 20x more potent a greenhouse gas than CO2, and plants DON'T pull it out of the atmosphere.

top closing shop...

stazeii stazeii writes  |  more than 3 years ago

stazeii (1148459) writes ", a great one-stop shop for scanned and translated (scanlation) Manga, is shutting down due to changes in philosophy from the manga industry.

From announcement:
"It pains me to announce that this is the last week of manga reading on One Manga (!!). Manga publishers have recently changed their stance on manga scanlations and made it clear that they no longer approve of it. We have decided to abide by their wishes, and remove all manga content (regardless of licensing status) from the site. The removal of content will happen gradually (so you can at least finish some of the outstanding reading you have), but we expect all content to be gone by early next week (RIP OM July 2010).""
