Time For Microsoft To Open Source Internet Explorer?

x_t0ken_407 Re:Partially open sourced? (165 comments)

Yes, they're referring to the layout engines (Webkit and Blink); that's the partiality of each respective browser in regards to 'open source'

Is 'SimCity' Homelessness a Bug Or a Feature?

x_t0ken_407 SimCity 4... (393 comments)

...was the last actual SimCity. Every subsequent game with that name was a dumbed-down fucking shell, a goddamn disgrace. Had high hopes for this latest iteration before all the BS came to light. SMH.

Hell I still play SC4 now when I get bored. Have an awesome realistic region of 4+ million or so, based on a map made from the Oxnard, CA area (scaled way up). Bah...but enough waxing nostalgic. Fuck fucking EA and what they did to Maxis, smfh.

Is the Tablet Market In Outright Collapse? Data Suggests Yes

x_t0ken_407 Re:Tablets age well (328 comments)

Lesson learned: don't build a good product that is going to work well for a long time.

This was my first thought -- that some of these manufactures poorly implemented their planned obsolescence, lol.

Lol, don't worry, GP nor wonkey_money will bother commenting at their surprise that something so absurd could possibly be true.

NetworkManager 1.0 Released After Ten Years Development

x_t0ken_407 Re:Should be interesting (164 comments)

Yeah, I especially like the ease of the OpenVPN support (as well as the PPTP support). Makes configuring my work and home vpn trivial -- not that it wasn't before, but it's nice to have all the networking stuff in the same seamless GUI tool.

NetworkManager 1.0 Released After Ten Years Development

x_t0ken_407 Should be interesting (164 comments)

NM has been great over the past 2-3 years, at least as for my usage with KDE. Before that it was pretty unstable in my experience. Not sure what'll change (if anything, too lazy to read the changelog) with the coming update, but I'm sure I'll have it within the week since I run Arch.

Who Needs NASA? Exoplanet Detected Using a DSLR

x_t0ken_407 Re:You too can discover Jupiter's moons using only (108 comments)

Not to mention that whole "time dilation" thing. Even getting anywhere near a significant percentage of the speed of light, sure, the riders/astronauts in the ship will get there in whatever "shorter" time it ends up being...but those of us who sent them off will grow old and die before they ever reach the destination. So very completely and utterly depressing.
