The easy division is a little advantage when you have to learn hard silly numbers like how many yards in a mile? And I don't ask you to calculate surfaces and volumes based on lengths :( When I see the mess it is... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/U...

How To Lose $172,222 a Second For 45 Minutes

the_cosmocat Re:The efficiency of capitalism (327 comments)

Bullshit! Your economic growth is only linked to the quantity of energy introduced in your economy (Ask a good physician!). Economists and politics did a good job at hiding that to cheat other people. If they don't understand that, they are bad economists/politics!!!

Direct3D 9 Comes To Linux, Implemented Over Mesa/Gallium3D

the_cosmocat Re:Yeah, if DirectX 9 had been around and not evol (138 comments)

You are only taking information that goes the cynical sens you want to give to your comment. Perhaps you should take the date of february 2007. The date of the release of the Direct3D 10 sdk. And then, taking into account some transition months to use this sdk, you see that games using this version is *only* 6 years old (And I'm pretty sure that games using this version was out 1 or 2 years after!). So, for those that are not fanatics and don't absolutely need the LAST games, that should be a first good step!

Why US Mileage Ratings Are So Inaccurate

the_cosmocat Re:Simple explanation (374 comments)

One of the big problem of these false numbers given by the manufacturers for fuel consumption is that these numbers are directly linked to CO2 emissions. And lots of governments give ecological aids when a car emit few CO2. So, with low (false) numbers manufacturers obtain ecological aids for expensive cars that emit in fact a lot of CO2! A these aids are paid with everybody taxes. So the poor pays taxes for rich people buying big polluting cars where aids should encourage to buy smaller ecological cars!

Yep. Exactly. To add an information it's the oldest ISP still in activity (but not as big as commercial ISP and not the same infrastructure but perhaps with more moral values)

Egypt Cuts the Net, Net Fights Back

the_cosmocat Re:Toto...?! (232 comments)

In fact, in france, "toto" means some differents things... - We have "toto" jokes which is quite similar to your Little Johnny jokes http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blague_de_Toto .It's very common jokes we all tell when we're young, very simple, naives,... - in computer science, we use "toto" to name all the things "useless" where a name is required (variables in hello word programs, debug display, sometimes --secured :) -- login and password,...)
