Cyber Attacks Demonstrated On Autonomous Ground Vehicles

xmousex car spam. (52 comments)

you will find your car pulling into the nearest walmart, telling you there is a sale on things you like to buy, that your friends are already there shopping, and you must sit in this parking lot for at least 10 minutes before going home or pay the unlock fee on various 3rd party apps your car installed for you at 2am this morning.

Economists Say Newest AI Technology Destroys More Jobs Than It Creates

xmousex Re:This is not the problem (688 comments)

This is ridiculous! As much effort as it takes to replace skilled labor with automation and we succeeded, now you think we cant accomplish something as simple as automating the poor? The consumers are the easiest part of this whole economic equation to replicate!

Apparent Islamic Terrorism Strikes Sydney

xmousex explain to me (880 comments)

why every single major news organization is running garbage robo programming instead of covering this event?

fox is talking about the cia
cnn is talking about dinosaurs
msnbc is talking about pot
local news channels are talking about lions/vikings cowboys/eagles and who is tracking santa claus this year

i found one station - cnbc world - that is bothering to cover this finally after a few hours went by.

do we need half the planet to slide off into the sun before someone bothers to stop into the news station to push a live feed button?

Most Planets In the Universe Are Homeless

xmousex Re:TopSlot (219 comments)

And I always wondered why people post their idle ponderings as a reply to anonymous cowards posting their penis. Where is the connection here? I mean it happens all the time here, entire endless discussions always seem to trace back to a first post racial slur and playground profanity.

Ask Slashdot: Choosing a Web Language That's Long-Lived, and Not Too Buzzy?

xmousex Re:Perl still works, and PHP is fine (536 comments)

We do have two experts on staff long term that maintain the core, but yeah new people come in and get started with us all the time and it works out great. They add to our platform as need and eventually move on, and PHP is a decent platform for this model to work. Why do you think this is somehow wrong? Are you too old and get cant a job now and need to cry about it somewhere? This discussion is about what works as an alternative to perl. PHP is working great for our situation.

Ask Slashdot: Choosing a Web Language That's Long-Lived, and Not Too Buzzy?

xmousex Re:Perl still works, and PHP is fine (536 comments)

you seemed to skip over the

" and come in at affordable rates, "

part of the post.

Our current platform has grown just fine over the last nine years and the perl platform we were on prior to this one began to have issues with finding new blood willing to come in and support it. The old blood wanting more money were typically snatched up by large corporations who would afford them.

Ask Slashdot: Choosing a Web Language That's Long-Lived, and Not Too Buzzy?

xmousex Re:Perl still works, and PHP is fine (536 comments)

If you are concerned about getting in employees who know the language from school or have experience at several prior jobs, and come in at affordable rates, or have a concern about available contractors, PHP is going to give you a larger available talent pool that you can swap people in and out faster then continuing with perl or going down just about any other path where the knowledge pool will be fairly limited. There are a lot of platforms in PHP that can aid with this, providing frameworks that everyone can follow regardless of how stable or unstable your development team may be.

Aliens and the Fermi Paradox

xmousex the smart ones simply leave (686 comments)

Sufficiently advanced races who develop the technology to travel to other planets find that same technology eventually allows them to exit the universe entirely. This leads to custom universes that are far more suitable for stable permanent civilizations outside of the chaos of the original birth universe. Colonizing other planets just seems like a chaotic inefficient messy task with little reward.

Not just more power, not just more cycles, not just more mhz, but actual 'horsepower'. Neat.

Time Dilation Drug Could Let Heinous Criminals Serve 1,000 Year Sentences

xmousex am i the only one (914 comments)

I read time dilation and immediately thought about how much more i could get done today with that drug.

This whole prison thing seems like an odd deviation from what should be the real topic.

Since I removed all score filtering in my preferences, I now enjoy slashdot much better. I like reading everyones comments, especially the silly ones. Mainly because my office is so quiet and I like to witness the noise an unfiltered discussion makes. It also seems that far to many posts are modded lower for political reasons and not for the value of the information contained within.
