Steve Jobs: 'We Don't Track Anyone'

trollertron3000 Re:Then why did Apple (373 comments)

Not sure what definition you are using but recording where I'm at is called tracking. You can spin it however you want. But the truth speaks.

Why Has Blu-ray Failed To Catch Hold?

trollertron3000 Re:Price! (1162 comments)

Yeah that's why I don't buy too many blu ray discs, DVDs are cheaper and I only spring for blu ray when the quality is important to me.

Sony's Case Against Geohot Has Been Settled

trollertron3000 On Anonymous (469 comments)

I'm sure Anonymous will now go away. They're known for being lenient in cases like this. Oh wait, no. You gonna get raped.

Much further actually. We have a plant here in Tampa, Florida where they brew a lot of it for the south.

Google Fights Back Against Android Fragmentation

trollertron3000 Re:Well they have a point (373 comments)

That's actually a brilliant idea, if it could be required to license it. I can't even load a stock ROM onto mine right now, even using the SDK I'm having issues.

Google Fights Back Against Android Fragmentation

trollertron3000 Re:Well they have a point (373 comments)

This could work particularly well if we had app markets that vetted their software thoroughly, thereby adding some value to the community.

Google Fights Back Against Android Fragmentation

trollertron3000 Re:Well they have a point (373 comments)

That just covers the Linux kernel, the majority of Android is actually Apache-licensed, and that limits them even further.

Google Fights Back Against Android Fragmentation

trollertron3000 Well they have a point (373 comments)

As much as I love Open Source I can see their point and I can't counter it. If we continue this fragmentation is it really going to benefit android or will it cause harm? If the goal is usage, which it is, then this is one way to enforce some standards and drive that goal. If the goal was software freedom it would be another story. But we knew this going in, it was never the goal.

FSF Suggests That Google Free Gmail Javascript

trollertron3000 Re:Greasemonkey (413 comments)

You seem to have the same answer that others here do but it's a bit off. Anyone can already get the source code and use it. But it's the license that is the issue here. No one can legally place it on their site and write their own version AFAIK.

FSF Suggests That Google Free Gmail Javascript

trollertron3000 Re:Crap Idea (413 comments)

Well I see your point but I disagree. It's not confiscation because Google would still own the copyright and this would be their choice to open source it.

I think the FSF approach is this - imagine a world where instead of hiding information and ideas, which is what source code is, we share those ideas and move forward so much faster. It's not in the name of security you see, it's in the name of freedom and moving humanity forward that much faster. You don't have to agree with it. It's idealistic, but some of us are.

FSF Suggests That Google Free Gmail Javascript

trollertron3000 Re:Yeah right (413 comments)

The source is obfuscated and also compressed.

MySpace Loses Ten Million Users In One Month

trollertron3000 Re:Myspace and Rustock Botnet (336 comments)

Considering Rustock was taken down in March and this is data between January and February I'd say it's probably not related.

MySpace Loses Ten Million Users In One Month

trollertron3000 Re:wrong place for my bandsite (336 comments)

The irony is myspace seems to be the place all musical artists go to these days, with facebook being an afterthought. I do concert and show promotion as a side business and I see tons of myspace band sites still. Facebook doesn't really cater to them like myspace did. It's ashame.

Can You Really Be Traced From an IP Address?

trollertron3000 Well Yes and No (246 comments)

Well yes and no. In the case of someone like the RIAA claiming they traced it back to a user -yes there is some room to say it's not foolproof. Far from it. But with someone like the FBI? That's not going to work. They will catch you in the act using a "man in the middle" sniffer like Carnivore to ensure the evidence chain of custody can be proved correct in a court room. Considering almost every piece of networking equipment made has LEO intercept capabilities built in, it's not hard.

US Contemplating 'Vehicle Miles Traveled' Tax

trollertron3000 Re:Why tax Hybrids and Guzzlers equally? (1306 comments)

You mean that low rolling resistance due to their tires? I had a time looking for weight comparisons though, where do you get your data on weight from?

Ask Slashdot: Cracking for Programmers?

trollertron3000 trollertron3000 writes  |  more than 2 years ago

trollertron3000 writes "I've been a programmer for 15 years and I'm bored. So I'd like to start cracking to bring back the excitement a little. I know my way around both *nix and windows and can code in most of the well-known languages. If you were me, where would you start? I feel this knowledge could really pay off in the long run."
