Behind the MOOC Harassment Charges That Stunned MIT

thephydes Re:Not trying to excuse what he did (376 comments)

You have obviously never worked with vulnerable people. Their very vulnerabilty leaves them open to being "forced" - read coerced here - into doing things that most people would not do. And it's not just a matter of a person deciding what their interaction with their computer or the internet will be. It is far more complex than that.

Google Finally Quashes Month-Old Malvertising Campaign

thephydes system is not foolproof ... (56 comments)

"Google says that AdSense content is “reviewed by real people and clever machines” before appearing on websites. But the system doesn’t appear to be foolproof." If you actually believe that it's foolproof, then you could well be labeled a fool. just sayin

I can remember back to the days of paper tape and punch cards - that was "real" computing.

Closure On the Linux Lockup Bug

thephydes Re:Folds in space time continuum (115 comments)

To understand that joke you need to be aware that in some place Uranus is pronounced your-anus (here in oz for example). The old 9th grade joke - " Mr R, can you see uranus with a telescope?" "yes if you use a mirror lens" ....

Glowing Hobbit Sword Helps You Find Unsecured Wi-Fi

thephydes I quite like seeing stuff like this ... (67 comments)

.... yes I'm old enough to remember building electronic stuff from discrete parts, and now it is actually quite difficult to do so other than for complete trivia. Whilst some of the components are not discrete, this would be a fun project for kids and they would actually learn something from it.

300 Million Year Old Fossil Fish Likely Had Color Vision

thephydes Re:sorry the dates are wrong .... (37 comments)

Fucking nora can't any of you see a joke? Down-modded to a troll? I'm a died in the wool evolutionist who believes that the earth is significantly older than 10 00 years and that the earth is likely not the only place that life exists. Further the Bible is a collection of stories that have been selected to push a certain view that other "books" that do not follow that view are ignored or discounted. Merry Christmas!

300 Million Year Old Fossil Fish Likely Had Color Vision

thephydes sorry the dates are wrong .... (37 comments)

God created the earth and its inhabitants - and therefore rods and cones - somewhere less than 10 000 years ago. Please, please keep this unscientific tripe off Slashdot - after all, all who post here are rational thinkers .... aren't we?

Who Needs NASA? Exoplanet Detected Using a DSLR

thephydes all credit is due.... (108 comments)

A very nice use of existing and well known technologies and some clever manufacturing of other parts. "Well done that man!" as my father would say. Of course the naysayers who have't done a fucking thing as nifty as this will be "blah blah blah......".

Drone Sightings Near Other Aircraft Up Dramatically

thephydes Re:These idiots are going to ruin it for everyone (132 comments)

what? are you suggesting most pilots can't tell the difference between a bird and a drone? Fucking get real...... these guys/gals have hundreds of hours of training which I have no doubt now includes looking out for the toys of fuckwits. Anyway, even if they do mistake a bird for a drone, I sure as hell as a passenger would want them to report it. Go and play with your drone - or your cock if you like that better.

UN Climate Change Panel: It's Happening, and It's Almost Entirely Man's Fault

thephydes Re:The Co-Founder Of The Weather Channel (695 comments)

He may be able to read and describe a weather map, or condense information from the weather bureau into digestible lumps, but that does not make him a climate scientist any more that me having a home weather station makes me a climate scientist. It makes us both weather tinkerers at best.

Using Naval Logbooks To Reconstruct Past Weather and Predict Future Climate

thephydes Re:No one cares (102 comments)

You obviously cannot read and comprehend what you read - perhaps you need to go back to grade school and get some lessons.. I didn't ask you to prove anything (although you have proved yourself to be an intellectual cripple). I asked you to provide compelling EVIDENCE that the earth is not warming. There is a load of EVIDENCE that it is if you can actually read more than comics. And posting as AC reinforces what a stupid prick you are.

Using Naval Logbooks To Reconstruct Past Weather and Predict Future Climate

thephydes Re:No one cares (102 comments)

wrong..... plenty of people give a shit, so unless you can provide compelling evidence that global warming is not happening - man made or otherwise - stop spreading your bullshit or get it published in a peer reviewed journal instead of here.

Thanks for demonstrating your superior intelligence and command of English. Please may I use your erudite comments in another forum? I'm sure they need wider exposure so that you get the exposure and accolades that you need.

Mobile Phone Use Soon To Be Allowed On European Flights

thephydes a question? (96 comments)

Will there be any reception for mobile phones on many flights? After all the planes will be WAY above any towers. Or does this just mean that people will use their phones for games as they do now and calls when they get close to airports? serious question believe it or not .....
