SoylentNews Blocks Submitters From Criticism

tibman too funny (10 comments)

Khyber goes all internet tough guy and gets banned. AC says that was the wrong thing to do. Seems that DDOS threats are supposed to be funny?

EA's Dungeon Keeper Ratings Below a 5 Go To Email Black Hole

tibman Re:Works for Slashdot as well... (367 comments)

...don't create a vile and toxic cease-pit of comments just because you hate the mild inconvenience of whatever issue with the beta you have

This goes both ways. It is not uncommon that the protestors are disliked for "disrupting" the everyday patterns of those who do not care about the issue at hand. Only apathy should be disliked. So, thank you for voicing your dislike of the protestors. However i would suggest some patience until all the ruckus is over.

EA's Dungeon Keeper Ratings Below a 5 Go To Email Black Hole

tibman Re:Works for Slashdot as well... (367 comments)

Sounds like victim blaming. "Beta didn't do it. You did it by not accepting Beta." There is always resistance to change. But the change has to at least bring something better to the table. Not a reduction in functionality. If the villagers didn't riot and just left quietly instead then you would still be left wanting better comments.

Bitcoin Plunges After Mt. Gox Exchange Halts Trades

tibman Re:Looks more like manipulation (249 comments)

It's pretty normal in the US. I can deposit money to a friend's account. They don't even want to see my ID.

Cops With Google Glass: Horrible Idea, Or Good One?

tibman Re:I've got a Nokia lumia 1020 (192 comments)

It seems to be the camera that has made it popular, not the operating system. What happens when android ships on something with over 40mp?

Fuck beta

tibman Mine was like that.. now its more like classic (1 comments)

Mine looks more like classic now. Just an inch on each side that is wasted instead of half the screen. Everything has sharp edges instead of rounded ones. I can moderate and filter comments again (i read at 0 normally and -1 when i have points). All the images are broken for me though? Even turned off no-script and icons appear to be missing.

Steam Music Now Accepting Beta Signups

tibman Re:DRM (102 comments)

I have VS 2010 and 2013 installed. Eclipse, Arduino, PhpStorm, WebStorm, and MonoDevelop as well. I don't think an IDE is going to set VAC off. I'm not even going into all the various services, emulators, and editors running either. Other than something deciding to randomly update and steal focus when i'm playing Rust, it has been just perfect. I get lazy sometimes and don't shut everything down : /

California Regulator Seeks To Shut Down 'Learn To Code' Bootcamps

tibman Re:Big $$$ (374 comments)

Maybe if colleges could teach software development there wouldn't be a need for these code bootcamps.

AMD Announces First ARM Processor

tibman Re:Despite it's name (168 comments)

You would have to go way out of your way to get x86 binaries on an arm box. Your package manager certainly won't be giving you pre-built packages for the wrong architecture.

Why Does Facebook Need To Read My Text Messages?

tibman Re:Actually one of my beefs (293 comments)

Lol, i was thinking the same thing. Want to listen to texts and perform an action? Or just replace the whole sub-system? Simply not possible on iOS. Side-stepping an issue is not solving it.

Congressmen Say Clapper Lied To Congress, Ask Obama To Remove Him

tibman Re:Try better sources than lefty-NPR (383 comments)

A president cannot do what Obama is doing in a "Constitutional Republic with checks-and-balances".
Selective enforcement of law IS the checks and balances.

Map of Publicly-Funded Creationism Teaching

tibman Re:Flame Bait (544 comments)

That is just silly though. I'm sure your state has passed some extremely ass-backward laws. Probably means every citizen in your state is ass-backwards too, right? The government is elected by majority but speaks for all. The implementation and enforcement of laws is itself a check/balance.

Kentucky: Programming Language = Foreign Language

tibman Re:Not comparable. (426 comments)

After two weeks you might think you've learned that programming language. To all your friends who don't know any better it looks like you're some kind of cultured genius. But to anyone who actually knows and works with the language you will appear to be a lost tourist constantly checking a guidebook.

JP8 is pretty much used for everything too. Stoves, hmmwvs, tanks, aircraft. Everything except lawn mowers.

Study Doubts Quantum Computer Speed

tibman Re:It's junk. (105 comments)

Just to add a little to what you said. An old GPU/ASIC can perform certain tasks far faster than modern CPUs. If D-Wave ends up only able to solve that kind of problem faster than a traditional computer then it must also be able to outperform the GPU/ASIC setup as well.

In Greece, 10 Months In Prison For "Blasphemous" Facebook Page

tibman Re:Not neccesairly (324 comments)

Being civilized does not allow a person to control their emotions. If you have ever seen people scared for their lives (for real or imagined) you would never have made that statement. Most people have no idea what they will do in an emergency until it has happened to them. Their idealized self most likely crushed in that moment and they spend the rest of their life trying to forget it or playing "what-if" games during boring meetings.
