Comment: Memory confused with storage on Slashdot? (Score 2) 264

I'm waiting for the Slashdot story about how obviously no one will ever need more than 640k of memory ever.

I do want to rant out about iPhone 6 memory though. 1GB is ridiculously low. They claim it was a choice to reduce battery use.
Using the gopro with 240 fps on the gopro app on a Galaxy S4 is a nightmare and I envision that it will be the same on the iPhone. Not quite sure how they plan on getting good performance even for in-phone features.

The judge will accept it as evidence, and the jury will convict because we are still living in a society of imbeciles trying to impose on how everyone should live under the premise that they know better as a collective decider.

We are destroying basic human rights and severely punishing people simply so we can "show them a better path" in life.

It's absurd. Why can't we just close all these ineffective branches of government fighting pseudo crimes already?

I don't know that I'd compare KGB-style fabrication of news with a western-style free press.
Ever since MH17, we are all part of this war. It doesn't have to be within some imaginary lines.
Ukraine's only fault is giving up its nuclear weapons and throwing off the balance.

I gave in and upgraded from my WRT to an ASUS router.
In the beginning it had major wireless latency issues (every 5th ping was over 100 ms) due to the broadcom wireless driver but after 6 months of complaining and getting nowhere with ASUS, they finally released a firmware that fixed the driver issues.
I really enjoy the speed now and being of 5 Ghz really helps snapping out of my overly congested neighbourhood.

Slashdot seems to be caught up in the same disinformation campaign it is warning about.


The matter of fact remains simple no matter who is at fault for this incident. There should not be a war there. But there is and Russia is to blame because they started it when they lost their puppet government.

Well, that's the only thing that he thinks he can do these days. Illegally I might add. Killing US Citizens abroad without due process seems to be his only jump-to-conclusion square.

What he should worry about is how does something like this happen a day after he expanded economic sanctions. Some awful oligarch who doesn't feel he stole everything he could have from the Ukrainians is retaliating over it.

From what I understand, any corporation with government contracts is required to do employment piss tests.
Totally intrusive and probably unconstitutional but the people who own this country piss on the constitution, whatever their piss contains, because no one tests them.

This book is one of my favorites. Stephen LaBerge teaches techniques that work very well for me to become aware of dreaming.

He also teaches how to use the skill for problem solving and creativity.

One of the techniques for becoming aware is to ask yourself during the day if you are dreaming and look for dream signs, which makes you ask yourself that same question while dreaming and helps realize that you are dreaming, at which point you can do anything. I guess that is where the electric current comes in handy because you are not used to it during your waking hours so when you experience it, it makes you realize you must be asleep, which means you can be or do anything you could ever want.

One of the coolest things for me is to fly to new strange cities.

Except, this is not about the money as much as about exposing the filthy disgusting shit these people do to keep people from earning what they are worth.

And we should all wonder how that looks on the global scale. If they get away with this type of stuff in the US, image what they get away with in countries with extremely corrupt governments.
