Anonymous Isn't Anonymous Anymore

totierne People get caught - then step back from the action (407 comments)

Just from what I have read about the IRA - you will get caught - you will not want to go back to prision - you will organise/encourage other people to get caught in their turn.
So I guess it is up to everyone to improve freedom fighting/hacking tools so the reckless young can have more of an impact. At least it gets us better jobs in the security forces in fact we should encouage them / run agents etc:)

How Do You Stay Upbeat Amidst the Idiocy?

totierne How would it be otherwise? (442 comments)

I only really started making the mistakes 'real' people do when I had to do things fast - moved from taking an hour to grok what was required to having something demoable in 15 minutes - or talk back in 20 seconds.

So people do not make the mistakes you do given 3 years degree + x years on the job, or who have not coded in 5 years, how would it be otherwise?

The person who never made a mistake never made anything.

Amazon Launches Public Data Sets To Spur Research

totierne Best way to analyze these public data sets? (82 comments)

OK so you have the public data from amazon - how do you analyze it? (I realize the problem here is the amount of options available rather than being constrained down one path)

Amazon Launches Public Data Sets To Spur Research

totierne Haw to analyze display survey data (82 comments)

I have been promised some simple survey data (bipolar survey) - what is the best way to analyze and display - I am into java/database/oracle and would like to use business intelligence techniques to test growing my career that way.

I realize there are lots of ways to do this, most of which would increase my skillset.

Computer For a Child?

totierne Free progs: childsplay gcompris and tuxpaint (556 comments)

also tux typing (?) and maths from tux for kids.

We have some (Russian) bought programs and lots of Movies/DVDs - he has not gone on the internet/youtube/flash programs yet. (He is 2 years 2 months - flashcards on childsplay was the first thing he used at 20 months).

I guess putting our 9 year old pc on the ground our maybe leave a 20 year Amiga out on the ground for him to destroy is next.

How to Deal With an Aging Brain?

totierne I do not see any software developments... (684 comments)

I was sharp when I was 20. At 38 5 breakdowns latter I am just about treading water. I write down in a computer file (utf8) what I used to remember. I played with regurgitating random parts of this memory file - mostly just reminded me what little progress I have made. (Same job 10 years later)

What I really worry about is my bipolar/depressed 72 year old mother and how long we can keep her out of a nursing home.

I am certain there is a software answer for this - but I do not hear any big developments, maybe she should just carry a pencil and paper everywhere - like I do.

I remember meeting a blind man when I was 18 and thought of all the computerized benefits that were just around the corner - oh to be 18 again...
