Comment Negative Feedback is Important (Score 4, Insightful) 337

Negative feedback is important to understand the areas of opportunity where your business might be improved. I think setting the precedent that you'll be stung by Tesla if you complain isn't sending the right message.

From a marketing perspective, free advertising!

Theoretical Evidence

Evidence, by definition, are facts. You either have evidence to support a theory or you don't have the evidence. The observations and calculations (evidence collected) are facts. They cannot be refuted, however the existence of a ninth planet is clearly theoretical and it was clearly stated that way in the original article. At no point did anyone proclaim that the planet definitely exists.

The morons that wrote the article rebuttal and the brilliant staff at dice who regurgitated it have completely wasted our time. They attempt to refute the existence of something so massive as a planet, yet they can't even master something as simple as grammar. "Theoretical Evidence", ridiculous.

My workstation at home has never had a BSOD, never any data corruption, and never any issues at all for over 2 years. But I also make it a rule to not buy my computers from Walmart. I also implement configurations to mitigate code execution from the user profile. Windows is an exceptionally stable and powerful platform assuming you didn't install it on top of complete garbage for hardware and assuming you don't run it using an administrator account - just like on Linux.

Comment Re:That is a resonance (Score 1) 168

Agreed: clearly this is resonance. The bridge was observed oscillating at several different frequencies since it construction. However, it was only when the wind speed reached 42 miles an hour did the bridge oscillate at 1 cycle per 5 seconds. This particular frequency caused the bridge oscillation to gain energy, and the bridge tore itself apart.

"resonance is a phenomenon that occurs when a vibrating system or external force drives another system to oscillate with greater amplitude at a specific preferential frequency.

There couldn't be a more perfect example of resonance.

That's just a quick example. I regularly locate much more capable machines at lower prices.

Perhaps you shouldn't take things out of context before opening your mouth. I also said:

If you spend some time...

Clearly, you didn't spend any time, your "research" is poor, and you're using your inexperience as an excuse for your own mouth.

I'm neither delusional nor a hand-me-down moocher.

I didn't spend a lot of time searching for an example because I don't need to waste hours to prove a point. Here is a 6 core in the ballpark of the stated price. If you spend some time, you can find listings that weren't well described, scratch and dent, short sale, and a ton of reasons why they sell for crazy cheap. http://www.ebay.com/itm/381478...

That's just a quick example. I regularly locate much more capable machines at lower prices. If you believe you must pay market value for everything you buy, perhaps it is you that is delusional, sir. There are people that make millions buying low and selling high. If you spend less time insulting random people on slashdot, perhaps you'd have more time to find better deals.
