Journal: WTF

Journal by Ice Station Zebra

Now some of my journal entries are missing. The ones about troll moderation. Either censorship reigns on /. or what the mysql neighsayers is true, mysql sucks or the /. crew doesn't know what the word backup means.

Journal: Fuck Microsoft

Journal by Ice Station Zebra

People just don't get it. Microsoft is not a good company. Here you have a Microsoft high muckidy-muck make a death threat and I point out that he should be reported to the FBI and a /. moderator (probably from the NW of the US) troll rates it. FUCK YOU MICROSOFT. I'll yell and scream at you, but I won't make death threats like ...cough... Ballmer.

Journal: BPL

Journal by Ice Station Zebra

My last comment about BPL was troll rated. That moderator doesn't know his ass from a hole in the ground. I've had close contact with a particular BPL sales team. I've heard them talk to their prospects on the phone. I've heard them lie about the interference potential of BPL.

BPL is a technological solution to a problem that has already been solved by wi-fi and various other means of providing internet access to the home. BPL is also bad physics. Using a single wire to send a signal and then saying that it won't cause interference to existing services is a failure to understand what Mr. Maxwell wrote in his equations oh so long ago.

Furthermore, letting the power company provide internet access is just bad policy. They are already a monolopy in one service, why let them try for another?

Journal: IP Banned

Journal by Ice Station Zebra

Tried posting from another computer, forgot I wasn't logged in but got a "ip/subnet banned" message. I thought moderation was suppose to solve all the bad posting issues. Is it so bad that specific IP's have to be banned?
