Ask Slashdot: Stop PulseAudio From Changing Sound Settings?

zidium Re:are the debian support forums down? (286 comments)

The way I'm treated trying to find a solution to this SAME problem, I thought I was the only one!

I **loved** OSS audio about a decade ago. So much better than ALSA! PulseAudio *ruined* it for me.

zidium Re:well... (246 comments)

Are you just an idiot, or what?! Payroll taxes are PAID BY EmPLoYErs and the employees never even see them.

Amazon To Buy Twitch For $970 Million

zidium Re:Cash? or gold? :D (61 comments)

They should have asked for it in gold bullion ;-) I doubt COMEX could come up with the requisite 746,154 troy ounces and we'd see a gold boom like never before!

Plus, who wouldn't want 51,165 pounds (23,208 kg) of gold?

Google Spots Explicit Images of a Child In Man's Email, Tips Off Police

zidium Re:Well at least they saved the children! (790 comments)

Boy, I sure didn't! I read it as "the people you communicate with regularly ARE using gmail." His argument makes way more sense that way, too.

Getting Back To Coding

zidium Re:Tool complexity leads to learning the tool (240 comments)

Big big words for an Anonymous Coward!

Even though I totally 100% agree with the AC who said they can use notepad and shove an icepick in their eyes too lol! I deal with those sorts ALL THE TIME. Esp. the SublimeText fanatics who wouldn't recognize a debugging breakpoint if they saw one.

New Digital Currency Bases Value On Reputation

zidium Re:Paper tracked barter (100 comments)

This is how the Subway restaurant chain became so huge. Remember their Subway Tickets in the mid-90s through mid-00s?

New Digital Currency Bases Value On Reputation

zidium Re:Paper tracked barter (100 comments)

But then again, it worked WONDERS for Worgl, Austria (google "The Miracle of Worgl"), Ithaca, NY, Berkshire Bucks, the Ancient Egyptians (built the pyramids using distributed paper money based on degrading wheat storage), AND the Cathedral economy of the pre-Enlightenment Europe.

New Digital Currency Bases Value On Reputation

zidium Charles Stross' Accelerando!! (100 comments)

This is straight out of Charles Stross' scifi novel Accelerando!

Tipsters are warning of an impending readjustment in the overinflated reputations market... His reputation is up two percent for no obvious reason today, he notices: Odd, that. When he pokes at it he discovers that everybody's reputation - everybody, that is, who has a publicly traded reputation - is up a bit. It's as if the distributed Internet reputation servers are feeling bullish about integrity. Maybe there's a global honesty bubble forming.

Predicting a Future Free of Dollar Bills

zidium Re:666 (753 comments)

Oh the U.S. already banned the owning, selling, and storing of gold and silver. From 5 April 1933 until 31 December 1974. Don't tell me it couldn't happen again! They'd just say "ONLY the Top 1% own silver and gold!" and all the mindless morons would believe them and CLAMOR for the ban and seizure.

Congress Unhappy With FCC's Proposed Changes To Net Neutrality

zidium Re:You already won, this was the prize (208 comments)

Didn't Slashdot's userbase vote *OVErwheLmINGLY* for Obama the first time? I bet they voted for him the 2nd time, too.

That's why.

If you had principles, you would join the boycott to protect the very site you love!

But you may just be a newbie, poser, feminine, or weak.
