Comment Crontab to Delete Flash Cookies (Score 2, Interesting) 192 192

So I've been using this line in my crontab for a long time now without any problems (well no more problems than I usually experience with Flash under Linux):

* * * * * rm -fr /home/me/.macromedia

I think this solves the problem, but maybe I'm mistaken...?

Comment Discovery of Aliens for Me (Score 1) 903 903

Seems like every other month we see a story about how a newer and smaller planet is discovered around a star. I think it'll only be a few more years before we find some kind of life on one of these planets ... do plants count? Obviously Sharks with Frickin' Lasers is possible right now, but I don't see a whole lot of research going into this discovery. I find it odd that Human Level AI is winning at the moment. I'm not all that familiar with the current state of this technology, but it seems at first glance to be about as hard as World Peace. Anyway, my money is on Aliens long before AI or Sharks with Laser Beams.

Comment Re:NBC Offers Their Shows on Their Site (Score 1) 474 474

The Heroes episodes were available a day after they aired last season. I expect they'll do the same this season (11 more days, woohoo!). And I think the episodes were available for quite some time after the season ended. But as another poster above mentioned, they removed the Heroes eps from their website after the DVDs were released. I'm not sure I can fault them for doing that...
