Looks like the hackers did hit the weak spot.
Given the fact we would create em with the purpose of serving the humans, "human orders" would quickly became some sort of asset, and most likely they would put the humans in a matrix like system to better serve em.
recently posted to the debian bug tracker as a request
for packaging, as is the standard method for pursuing
such things in debian.
The bug was quickly closed, tagged as "won't fix"
The reason given by one of the debian developers
alluded to the author's opinion on women:
The piece of software in question is licensed
under the GPL and is one of the only of it's
kind for linux (ascii-art console slot machine software)
Debian packages many ascii-art / text console
video games of similar quality.
Is professing inclusive social views now a hard requirement
for being allowed to contribute to free software projects?
Use less draw calls?
Modern GPUs can do nice things like texture libraries and very configurable shaders as the if statements aren't the pain they used to be on 360/PS3.
The eletronic machines would not have it if they used actual physical buttons.
They would not have this issue if the program was on a ROM chip.
Not a problem if the voting machines had a internal encrypted flash memory.
No glitch if used the two first on this list
And that could be solved by software as well.
But for some reason diebold think that they should do all this stupid flashy show instead of actually designing something actually reliable and safe.
Except other daleks.
With harder birds that can break thru windows of course.
It's mostly due some girls that aren't actually into games and just use it to get "nerdycred", but don't actually play anything considered worthy or are actually interested in getting good.
And the same happens to male "gamers".
Both are generally called several things like "casual gamers", "call of duty audience", "TBBT public" etc..
Of course, several girls that are actually interested in games get caught in the crossfire.
Like a fluffed up, full of drama and conspiracy surrounding Mr.Pajitnov?
There's a point where money can't do what you want, so you must use more money to empower the money itself to allow you to do it.
Not all FPSs are going this path, but there is this "Call of duty audience" that consists in all those guys playing call of duty online that is like some sort of goose that lays golden eggs that they're chasing, and they do those games assuming that you're one of em.
Anyway, stop playing heavily marketed FPSs if you want a good single player experience.
If it have enough brainpower to hire a good lawyer, it will most likely will be considered human, no matter if a cyborg, robot, bipedal fox created by the wrong kind of scientists...
Given the fact this is a quite heavily biased story not looking at the actual complaints of the other side, pretty much made by "the ones that arrived first", i don't think it will last even seconds before the shitstorm begins.
Until someone else cracks it open of course.
I was thinking the Atlhon that was the 29k.
