Comment Re:The Olympic Dream (Score 1) 280

was hosting the Olympics such a good idea?

It depends on the size of the bribe. If the bribe was large enough, it was a great idea for the bribed ones. Otherwise, they are just imbeciles.

How many cash, Brazilian whores and coke would have been needed to convince you to happily have exactly the same idea? Do you think you're more expensive to corrupt than the actual decision makers? I doubt it.

What amazes me most is when Mr. Reznor dresses up as a young female Korean go player and manages to play go at pro level.

Or when he explains general relativity, as an American Professor , even posing weekly problems about space-time!

Or when he plays various of the lates videogames at pro skill level, perfectly characterized as a young american!

Or when he teaches lockpicking opening challenge locks in under a minute!

That Trent guy is AMAZING!

(However, now that I know about his amazing transformism ability, I'm a bit scared about Trent's implication in redtube)

Comment And what's our suggestion to friends and family? (Score 3, Interesting) 79

I'm scared of my mother calling me one day telling me "I've lost every picture from all my life and a guy is asking me $10K to recover them".

By that point it will be late to tell her "shouldn't have been storing them in a disk permanently attached to your windows laptop".

But I don't know how to stop her. I won't convince her to use linux. I won't manage to teach her not to execute random crap once per year.

Should I trust hard drives to store data for decades?
