Armstrong, Cernan Testify Against Obama Space Plan

uberjoe Re:So... (411 comments)

reports come back that the latest rover mission may be failing because it's stuck on a 3 inch rock and can't wiggle it's way off . . .

I think I read somewhere that the rovers accomplished in six years what an actual human geologists (or areologist in this case) could do in an afternoon. Robots are great, but they are very slow.

uberjoe Re:I'm calling "Bull" on the whole thing... (597 comments)

How could a computer identify a card counter inside 20 hands when a card counter hasn't even started using their count by then?

Because its a quantum computer. Duh!

Wikipedia Approaches Its Limits

uberjoe Re:The Incestuous Cesspool (564 comments)

I had a similar situation a few month ago. I read an article on wikipedia about a TV show. At the end of the article I added Hulu links to the series. They were removed the same day. No one explained to me why it is a bad idea to include links to the actual show in an article about that show.

Ridley Scott Directing Alien Prequel

uberjoe Re:Great! (336 comments)

amen to that. 1979's 'alien' is good, but the 1986 'aliens' is what made my heart thump and want to be a space marine.

Google Announces Chrome OS, For Release Mid-2010

uberjoe little baby tears (1089 comments)

The web is not the OS. The web is...the web. I do NOT want everything to be a goddamn web app. Web apps work very well for certain applications, and Google has shown that they can push the limits with dynamic content, but that does not mean the web application is an appropriate model for every damned application.

So stop whining, and don't use it.

uberjoe uberjoe writes  |  more than 5 years ago

uberjoe (726765) writes "The Escapist Magazine reports: In a press release, the controversial former attorney, who described himself as "nationally and internationally known by virtue of his effective and successful opposition over the last 20 years to the broadcast, marketing and sale of adult-rated entertainment to children," announced that the Florida Supreme Court has accepted the recommendation of Judge Dava Tunis and disbarred him from practicing law.
