Study: Social Networks Have Negative Effect On Individual Welfare

uCallHimDrJ0NES Re:Jail time will not help (75 comments)

Coward -- I get the feeling you're going somewhere interesting here, but the metaphor isn't quite working. Would you mind spoon feeding what you're getting at here, without putting on any kind of satire/parody of what I said? Are you saying moderation is equivalent to jail time? Freedom of speech equivalent to freedom to move about public space? Freedom of speech "invented" by someone? Too many things going on at once to make your point clearly, at least to me.

Study: Social Networks Have Negative Effect On Individual Welfare

uCallHimDrJ0NES Moderation will not help (75 comments)

Moderation censors opinions contrary to the majority of the participants in a particular forum. This frustrates those who need to communicate critical points, which will produce an entirely new set of negative feelings and may even break the behavioral hooks that make social networking appealing.

Ask Slashdot: What To Do About Repeated Internet Overbilling?

uCallHimDrJ0NES Re:Simple Solution... (353 comments)

Obviously, that's not an option for this person. What prompts you to type this and click preview, and then click submit, without considering this? Do you think you're the one who's stating an obvious point? You're not. You're the one who is proving he doesn't think before he types.

Is Dong Nguyen Trolling Gamers With "Swing Copters"?

uCallHimDrJ0NES Re:Why are you giving this dipshit free PR? (112 comments)

This is an idiotic who had a mental breakdown (or whatever) and removed FB because it was "too hard and ruined peoples loves", after he staged a meltdown online where he blatantly lied and said that the amount of money he was raking in was too much and posed a threat to himself because of where he lived in the world.

IMHO, this jackass should have been banned from the App Store with all the shenanigans he pulled. Now you jackasses are giving him free PR again, because he wrote another shitty HTML5 game that is once more purportedly "too hard". Nice.

Wow. This guy proves i kan reed's point IMMEDIATELY.

Do Readers Absorb Less On Kindles Than On Paper? Not Necessarily

uCallHimDrJ0NES Re:Compare it with a nook (105 comments)

Wow. I hadn't noticed that Amazon was marketing the Fire tablets as e-readers, but yeah, that's the wrong hardware for the job. Sounds like a group of marketers at Amazon think that their poop can dance and do tricks.

You're not under the impression the Paperwhite isn't e-ink are you? It is. Paperwhite is e-ink with a sidelight built in.

Involuntary Eye Movement May Provide Definitive Diagnosis of ADHD

uCallHimDrJ0NES Re:100 percent bullshit (200 comments)

ADHD meds are no more a slippery slope than Antidepressants before them. And they were no more a slippery slope than the Tobacco/Pot/Alcohol/Coffee before them. Arguments like yours are why Slippery Slope is considered a logical fallacy.

I'm saying that seeking chemical sources to soothe over the overabundance of reward-based interactions we are experiencing will naturally progress towards escalating both the drugs and the reward-based interactions. I apologize if I misused the term "slippery slope". Invoking antidepressants as an example of harmlessness is far more questionable than any incorrect naming of a type of fallacy I may have done.

Involuntary Eye Movement May Provide Definitive Diagnosis of ADHD

uCallHimDrJ0NES Re:100 percent bullshit (200 comments)

Which medical school did you graduate from?

You don't know? I graduated from the school that passes out pieces of paper that prove I'm more authoritative than you are. Look at my creds, they prove everything! It's way better than thinking about what I'm saying. Now shut up and call me Doctor.

Involuntary Eye Movement May Provide Definitive Diagnosis of ADHD

uCallHimDrJ0NES Re:100 percent bullshit (200 comments)

On the plus side, even if we accept the assertion that the disorder is nonsense (which is questionable; but for the sake of argument); the usual treatment has the virtue of being sufficiently useful, safe, and even pleasant that plenty of people who don't even suspect ADHD will try to score some through alternate channels or complain until they get a prescription.

The risks aren't zero, and there are certain people who should stay away; but psychostimulants are some very nice drugs.

I have to reject that. Slippery slope. If we take enough drugs, we can totally mechanize and work/play on our machines/selves/machineselves all the time, and be "content" about it. Why would that be good, as opposed to changing our expectation of the next generation being the same mental configuration as the previous one?

Involuntary Eye Movement May Provide Definitive Diagnosis of ADHD

You misunderstand me. I'm not blaming technology. I'm blaming our lack of understanding of how our interaction with it affects us as a group over time.

Swedish Dad Takes Gamer Kids To Warzone

uCallHimDrJ0NES Re:Gettin All Up In Yo Biznis (419 comments)

The correlation between military FPS and real war is mindshare/recruiting. Why do you deceive yourself? For fun? You love CoD so much you can't see the downside? I don't get it.

Involuntary Eye Movement May Provide Definitive Diagnosis of ADHD

uCallHimDrJ0NES 100 percent bullshit (200 comments)

The persistence of the notion of this disorder is disturbing. The method by which it's diagnosed is faulty. You can't come in after all this legacy of crap and tell us that you can diagnose it physiologically using a single criteria like this. These assertions will be disproven within the year. The entire ADHD diagnosis phenomenon is the culture struggling with the ramifications of human interaction with technology. You can't set the example of "pay close attention to the stimulating box for long periods of time" over multiple generations and not expect a massive change in the way kids behave. Whether they fit in with our plans or not, these kids are NORMAL. It's the expectation that this generation will behave like the previous one which is faulty.

Apple's App Store Needs a Radical Revamp; How Would You Go About It?

uCallHimDrJ0NES Re:Hey Apple, U got problems? I got solutions! (249 comments)

This doesn't solve the problems listed, it makes them worse. By having multiple stores you decrease each apps visibility, unless the developers do much more work to list their apps in every store. Taking time that would otherwise be devoted to developing more or better apps.

I don't agree, Basil. More app stores means more/different lists of most "popular" apps, and more diverse bodies of users who will be looking for something different. It's not very Apple, but it is true. Does this mean developers have to choose which market/appstore to be sweet to? Yes. This is simply "humans" managing the App store, as Tim Cook pretended to propose. He meant "Apple employees who do what we tell them," but we are suggesting more truly independently run App stores.

You seem to be pursuing a dream where Apple drives customers to independent Apps. That was a fine dream when iOS was fledgling. Now, it's a behemoth. New stores, new markets, new risks, new rewards for new developers.

NTLM 100 Percent Broken Using Hashes Derived from Captures

uCallHimDrJ0NES uCallHimDrJ0NES writes  |  about a year and a half ago

uCallHimDrJ0NES (2546640) writes "Security researcher Mark Gamache has used Moxie Marlinspike's Cloudcracker to derive hashes from captured NTLM handshakes, resulting in successful pass-the-hash attacks. It's been going on for a long time, probably, but this is the first time a "white hat" has researched and exposed the how-to details for us all to enjoy. Microsoft has posted a little guidance for those who need to turn off NTLM: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2793313. Have fun explaining your new security project to your management, server admins!"
