Researchers Print Electronic Memory On Paper

uCallHimDrJ0NES When I can play Asteroids on the back of a box... (77 comments)

...it will be hard to get me to leave the breakfast table.

I'm seeing a whole line of Atari cereals, and a competing line of Mattel Electronics Intellicereals. Maybe get Alan Alda and George Plimpton's faces on the boxes to keep the kids away from Dad's stuff.

Canadian ISP On Disclosing Subscriber Info: Come Back With a Warrant

uCallHimDrJ0NES It won't last. (55 comments)

When the ISP is forcibly shown who their real customers are, they will tow the line. Nice marketing play, though.

Tor Project Sued Over a Revenge Porn Business That Used Its Service

uCallHimDrJ0NES Re:Redneck roadhouse (311 comments)

Have you been living under a rock? Austin is the #1 fastest growing city in the country, and it is often referred to as "the new silicon valley." Texas has 4 of the 10 largest cities and 2 of the 5 largest metropolitan areas by population in the United States.

No one easier to wind up than a Texan. Austin or Houston, they go down real easy.

Microsoft Backs Open Source For the Internet of Things

uCallHimDrJ0NES Nerds, please make the IoT work... (136 comments)

...so we can steal it from you in the future and sell the resulting data to governments. You have our permission to be geniuses for exactly as long as it takes to innovate this IoT stuff. Have you heard about our Partner Program? You'll love it! Don't worry, we won't suddenly start competing with you instead of partnering with you while you're busy working your job. Let's get some standards drafted! Love, MS

NYC Loses Appeal To Ban Large Sugary Drinks

uCallHimDrJ0NES Re:Let them drink! (532 comments)

I confess, I had to look that up. My comment was probably more incendiary than necessary, largely because of my irritation with the presumption of the phrase "If you'll just stop and think for a moment." Nonetheless, I find the web hosting plug in the sig spammy. Does this mean we aren't friends anymore?

NYC Loses Appeal To Ban Large Sugary Drinks

uCallHimDrJ0NES Re:Let them drink! (532 comments)

If you'll just stop and think for a moment, you'll realize that people aren't smashing down 44oz of sugar. They're drinking 44 fluid ounces of a soft drink, sweetened with sugar and/or high-fructose corn syrup. I agree with your basic idea that the US shouldn't try to be a nanny state, but I think that your point comes across better without the mistake.

I've stopped and thought. I realized I am not interested in this subject, and that your correction of exomondo's post is little more than an excuse to post something. How's that web hosting business you're spamming your sig line coming?

CMU System Lets You Get To the Good Parts of Video, Fast

uCallHimDrJ0NES Re:Does it filter out ads? (32 comments)

Think about it... A good algorithm should be smart enough to filter out unwanted content such as ads :)

I'm thinking about it. Does it filter out product placement? Does Rocky still buy the chicken?

Astronomers Discover Earth-Sized Diamond

uCallHimDrJ0NES ...like a diamond in the sky? (112 comments)

Scintillate, Scintillate, Diminutive Stellar Orb,

How inexplicable to me it seems the stupendous problem of your existence.

Elevated at such an immeasurable distance in an apparently perpendicular direction from this terrestrial planet which we occupy,

Resembling in thy dazzling and unapproachable effulgence, a gem of purest carbon set solitaire in a university of space.

Don't Want Google In Your House? Here Are a Few Home-Tech Startups To Watch

uCallHimDrJ0NES Re:I don't want "smart-home" (88 comments)

Ultra64, are you expecting us to believe that you genuinely don't understand the fears of those in this forum who oppose your optimistic view of the way data collected on customers of these services will be used? Or are you just baiting and enjoying the argument? If the former, you are one interesting character, and the conversation should proceed. If the latter, you're a troll, and fun as it may be, we should all stop feeding you.

Microsoft Wants You To Trade Your MacBook Air In For a Surface Pro 3

uCallHimDrJ0NES Re:This is telling (365 comments)

>It's a laptop that happens to have a detachable keyboard.

Well, duh. Every Windows tablet is a laptop with a detachable keyboard.

Well, duh! Every observation is obvious when you're repeating it with the words "Well, duh!" in front of it. Let's face it, everybody knows that. Aren't you glad you contributed to the thread?

HUGO Winning Author Daniel Keyes Has Died

uCallHimDrJ0NES Re:Good riddance (66 comments)

That novel was nothing but a gimmick, with the stupid writing style changing as he got smarter. The plot was lame and predictable. Glad to see he won't be producing anymore shitty novels in this world.

Hello, flamebait. When you die, your comments will not be missed. This reply is the most use your life has ever served. Give to the poor now while you still can.

Teaching Creationism As Science Now Banned In Britain's Schools

uCallHimDrJ0NES Re:Now they have to ban PARENTS from talking about (649 comments)

:) That is funny. The reason I was calling your take on Mi's post "creepy" is because I think the notion of an ordained state-run party of scientists and their opinions is scary, even if they are large enough to make up a "vast majority". It sounds like some kind of whitecoat Spanish Inquisition.

Teaching Creationism As Science Now Banned In Britain's Schools

uCallHimDrJ0NES Re:Now they have to ban PARENTS from talking about (649 comments)

I know he's kidding, he was using hyperbole to suggest that this is government overreach. I don't think it is.

Even creepier. Also, I consulted every site on the Internet and a consortium of literature professors, and they told me you don't know what "hyperbole" means. You may have been looking for "satire".

Teaching Creationism As Science Now Banned In Britain's Schools

uCallHimDrJ0NES Re:I have a request. (I doubt it'll be honoured) (649 comments)

No. There are way more of us than you, and we have more Internet than you. You got Americans to watch your glossy, soapy, US-television-imitating Doctor Who remake. Isn't that enough? Now go back to your beans on toast, and stop making unreasonable requests.

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!"
