Safercar.gov Overwhelmed By Recall For Deadly Airbags

umghhh Re:Just call a dealer (114 comments)

you know some so you know'em all??? wow - great that it works for you.

If you do not have to cope with the problem in your head yourself then maybe you should not talk for those that do. Besides I do not have impression that passive-aggressive and asperger are mutually exclusive. Sitting in my mom's cellar can make anybody aggressive or passive-aggressive or whatever DSM authors think is diagnosable.

this is a nerd's site so many here have some minor or not so minor mental problem that makes them wandering off the given path. That is part of it being interesting.

Canada Will Ship 800 Doses of Experimental Ebola Drug to WHO

umghhh Re:WHO owns the property rights? (99 comments)

In this world somebody will own it. It is better if a good government does (and everybody to use it) than some asshat with a team of scalp hunters dressed as lawyers would. Just shows what big pharma actually does for the money they get. Not much it seems.

you mean the bodies are already in soupy form that makes further processing much easier. Interesting albeit slightly disgusting thought.

Researchers Scrambling To Build Ebola-Fighting Robots

umghhh Re:Technology might not help. (87 comments)

the reason why religion was not removed by natural selection is that it offers a society some benefits if external pressure - it coerces people into cooperation. Whether a particular religion has a supernatural being or a state or flying spaghetti monster is actually irrelevant as long as it helps people 'understand' the world. There are more of us that do need that than not.

Researchers Scrambling To Build Ebola-Fighting Robots

umghhh Re:We need more Firestones in the World (87 comments)

If this is actually true it just shows that WHO is no good with their plans - more money and resources needed to be diverted to local communities to help themselves. There are not enough of helpers from outside to help now anyway so this is probably better and even if it does not work for everybody it may actually work well enough to convince the idiots claiming that there is novirus or that it is spread on purpose by burial teams etc. or just wait until they die and make for a better world.

ON a second thought - I just wonder why this story is not known in wider world as it seems to show that there is hope and motivated people can actually do something useful instead of indulging in the biggest zombi attack media hysteria since Wells did his Martians invasion.

I suppose napalm is a better disinfectant and it smells like victory if applied properly (as we know).

Researchers Scrambling To Build Ebola-Fighting Robots

umghhh Re:What? (87 comments)

Did this nurse in texas know that she had to wear a protective suit? Judging on CDC advice and other little f.ups we hear about it may be that they forgot to tell her. Other than that this is just a joke - robots may help in years to come but not now. We have problems with increasing of production of these fancy suits of which many are needed per health worker per bed per day. But it works nicely as a diversion from panic and hysteria in US media so it is good for well being of the person and the society in general.

But that is only because helmets for f-35 pilots cost 600k a peace and US ordered more than 65 of them.

umghhh Re:Economics plays a role here (87 comments)

If you leave these people to their own devices then not only they will start dying in big numbers but because their society will collapse and we will have refugees everywhere and this means the virus will be everywhere (consult a map of the region and think about how many troops you would need to quarantine that when you think that is a right solution). This is the reason we try to help. Now the way to help is another matter. I think sending people there to help treatment of patients is one thing but if the numbers will grow then better build isolation units as you call them, provide food and other supplies and leave the communities to deal with the problem on their own while hoping that vaccine is ready soon.

Scanning Embryos For Super-Intelligent Kids Is On the Horizon

umghhh Re:Cue slippery slope arguments now... (365 comments)

fortunately India and China have unresolved border disputes. Unfortunately they have already more effective (nuclear) way of fixing this and it fixes all equally women, man and children.

Technology Heats Up the Adultery Arms Race

umghhh Re:Already gone (304 comments)

this is a side track but I think important enough: counselling actually does help but not necessarily in holding a relationship - mine helped in determining that we do not want to live together anymore.

Password Security: Why the Horse Battery Staple Is Not Correct

umghhh Re:Bang for buck (546 comments)

Quite a few intelligent posts here this time. Bit shocked really - is this still /. ???

But I digress - the point here is this: once you fix the security of primary access you will find out that password recovery is shit, one you fix this you will find out that the password DB of the site was at the same time not properly hashed and not properly protected from theft. One you fix this you will notice that your device is compromised, your 'yellow stickers' with pwd to password manager have been seen by evil person (wife?) and somebody compromised not only the reader of your chip card but also the they eavesdropped pin of that. Then we find out what the best way of the authentication and authorization are - NSA, IS and other friends will use it to track you in a perfect way.

To me it looks like lose-lose situation and one that thanx to galloping technology and 'user friendliness' is getting worse as we speak.

Does piracy actually hurt music industry?

umghhh umghhh writes  |  about 4 years ago

umghhh (965931) writes "Well if you believe the article (and why would we not?) the figures on sales of CDs are really bad of late but the music industry in general makes a splash.
The question then may be: what are new sources of revenue and new business models (besides legal action against young and elderly) — well read the linked article if you want to know!
I suppose RIAA and other parasites do not realize their time is coming."
