David Braben Kickstarts an Elite Reboot

stx23 Right On Commander (173 comments)

Due to a combination of bitterness from buying the unplayable First Encounters and their most recent output being part of Star Wars Kinect I wouldn't give him anything to be part of this beta test.

How Apple and Amazon Security Flaws Led To Mat Honan's Identity Theft

stx23 Why Mat? (222 comments)

Something I haven't seen through reporting of this is why Mat Honan was targeted, was it the Gizmodo / Wired connection or something more sinister directed at him?

When Antivirus Scammers Call the Wrong Guy

stx23 Caller ID : 0000000000 (473 comments)

They've managed a neat trick in calling me recently, CallerID shows up as a row of 0s. It has also enabled me to set a silent ringtone to the number so I don't hear them call either.

Sun Advice Columnist Advised MPs On UK Porn-Block Plans

stx23 It's the Sun wot won it (118 comments)

The Sun is perhaps the last place to ask about possible censorship of the web as it's part of Murdoch's empire which includes paywalls in places such as the Times. Dierdre must be about a million years old now.

Age Bias In IT: the Reality Behind the Rumors

stx23 Add YEARS to AGE (582 comments)

I would have though that anyone that is 45, making 150k and writing COBOL probably already developed most of the system they're working with and is in a pretty safe place until someone decides to drop SAP on top of everything.

Details About Raspberry Pi Foundation's $25 PC

stx23 Re:Cost of a textbook? (349 comments)

I joined when I was about 17 out of curiosity; the people I met were mostly lacking any social skills, kind of awkward to be around and lacking any sense of humour. Usenet's had very similar people populating/trolling it so I got out of any association with them kind of sharpish.
They're the World's smartest idiots IMO.
