Inside a Full-Body-Scanning X-Ray Van

tietokone-olmi Re:How does this happen? (313 comments)

They still support the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, despite overwhelming evidence that the US is and continues to be exactly the cynical torturer that the worst voices in Europe have said. That is to say: YOU'RE ALL BLEEDING HYPOCRITES.

C Programming Language Back At Number 1

tietokone-olmi Re:TIOBE methodology is so flawed it's pointless (535 comments)

Dude, it's a long-term study. It doesn't matter if their metric isn't the absolute bestest metric you could come up with to measure impact etc. right now. What matters is that their metric works over several decades and that the results remain comparable between then and now.

tl;dr -- you want to look at the graphs, not the numbers.

Wikileaks Receiving Gestapo Treatment?

In the parent comment, you can see the common North American Power Fanboy having a reaction.

Anti-Smoking Vaccine Is Nearing the Market

tietokone-olmi Messing with the dopamine system? (237 comments)

Man, that can't be a good idea.

Remember Rimonabant, the wonder anti-obesity drug that messed with the endocannabinoid system? That made people suicidal for fuck's sake. (It was an endocannabinoid receptor antagonist, see -- "anti-munchies", basically.)

Microsoft Patents Sudo's Behavior

tietokone-olmi Re:Penalties (657 comments)

If you can't stay ahead in the game, you wouldn't have deserved a patent either. You would sit on your pile of gold and retard progress.

Multi-Button OpenOfficeMouse At OOoCon 2009

tietokone-olmi Re:Metaphors (265 comments)

This mouse is a good metaphor of American Liberty and Freedom. Too many choices and very confusing interfaces. Good job, Stalin!

How the dick is that generic?

How can a 6DOF controller ever be "generic"?

The CyberMan 2 (which you described above) was seen in Farscape. Tarted up in gold spray paint and everything, but instantly recognizable.

Mine still works, too.

AMD Packs Six-Core Opteron Inside 40 Watts

tietokone-olmi Re:TFS is a bit light on details (181 comments)

Except that with multiprocess concurrency (i.e. non-multithreaded Apache on Unix), you actually gain in a NUMA setup like the Opterons have been from day 1. See, in the optimum case in a NUMA environment, the server process that handles a request gets an entire memory bus for itself. That's far more scalability than with multithreading in the absence of memory duplication, which AFAIR Linux doesn't implement on a per-thread basis in the same address space.

This is why Opterons practically own the 4-socket x86 space: unlike with Intel's older "hub-style" busses, on a NUMA system aggregate memory bandwidth goes up as sockets are added because the number of memory busses increases also.

WikiLeaks' Daniel Schmitt Speaks

tietokone-olmi Re:The problem with Wikileaks is... (154 comments)

So you would rather judge a person on whom they are rather than by what they do?

How contrarian of you. Idiotic, but admirably contrarian.

WikiLeaks' Daniel Schmitt Speaks

tietokone-olmi Re:The problem with Wikileaks is... (154 comments)

Yeah, to blacks and whites of your choosing. Arguing with you becomes like a game of chess where you start with 16 pieces and the opponent starts with a king and a pawn: that is to say, your intellectual dishonesty extends to redefining the rules in order to have some kind of a Righteous Victory.

You, sir, are a fop and an arse-bandit, and I spit on you.

WikiLeaks' Daniel Schmitt Speaks

tietokone-olmi Re:Surely he isn't biased... (154 comments)

How about selling R&D that the R&D'ing company intends to sit on and not develop? Surely the suppression of progress is a great enough sin to warrant a leak -- and the money comes in handy trying to avoid The Man for the next ten years, so no begrudging that either.

WikiLeaks' Daniel Schmitt Speaks

tietokone-olmi Re:Surely he isn't biased... (154 comments)

Given that your interpretation of the "general principle of the thing" (fixed your sp for you, no need to thank) leads you to an obviously contradictory conclusion, have you taken the time to consider whether your interpretation isn't, in fact, bollocks?

Generally people who set up shit like WikiLeaks take far more time to come up with the concept than you do attempting to tear it down. It's unreasonable to assume that WikiLeaks' administrators were idiots or half-wits or otherwise of right-wing mental caliber. the classical vice of hubris is built on this same concept, i.e. that of overestimating oneself and by contrast the underestimation of others.

(Oh boy, that was a long and roundabout way to say "grow up, dickhead".)

Were Neanderthals Devoured By Humans?

tietokone-olmi Re:Oblig. (502 comments)

Or the neanderthals ate one another, the crazy old cannibals they.

See, no guilt for our bloody ancient forefathers and -mothers.
