Comment Re:So. 50,000 more H1-B visas need to be issued (Score 1) 322

lets check back how well trump's 'plan' goes. if we ever SEE anything real from him in this direction.

fact is (I know, we're post-fact now, sigh..) that he's a business guy and that type LOVES indentured servitude.

there's nearly 0% chance he'll cut back on cheap labor for CORPORATE AMERICA.

you righties are such gullible morans. sad part is, you just ruined things for all of us for the next 4 years ;(

Comment Translation... (Score 1) 788

Drooling Moron that believe everything and has no understanding about safety or even proper etiquette goes on a ego building adventure and finally gets what he needs from the police.

The dude is a mental patient that needs serious help and because of how unstable he is needs to have firearms removed from his possession. Sorry but if you are that much of a headcase, you do NOT need to own guns.. There are laws in place that already state this.

Comment CPU cycles area cheap. Bandwidth is not. (Score 1) 58

I don't care in the least if my computer sits idle for a few seconds waiting for me, the user, to tell it what to do. I care very much if it arbitrarily decides to waste some of my all-too-limited monthly bandwidth incorrectly trying to second-guess my intent.

Dear Silicon Valley (or in this case, Oslo): Kindly fuck off and quit acting like the whole world has the same nice gigabit FTTP connections you've come to enjoy. Over half of the US (and more than half of the planet) doesn't have effectively unlimited high-speed broadband available. Please behave accordingly.

And you ignore that 3d printing is not about printing things you can buy.

Where can I buy a Garmin to BMW GPS adapter plate? nowhere
Where can I buy headphone hangers for my specific desk? nowhere
Where can I buy a Death Star dice box for my friends that are Star Wars RPG lunatics? nowhere
Where can I buy a switch delete plug for a 1979 civic? nowhere
Where can I buy a China bolt style red 3Watt LED to Yamaha rear tail motorcycle mounts that look stock? nowhere.

3d printing is for creating and printing things that you can not get, its for people that use their brains and create and then want to effortlessly get a plastic part.

It has never been a "print out these things that you can just go buy" and I have no clue at all where you got such a horribly uninformed idea that it was.

Comment For two reasons. (Score 2) 119

Musk is the only man that is actually building shit to help society and further humanity while making a profit.

The other two are simply hiring others to make money off the masses for personal gain. Bozos and Zuck have done absolutely nothing for society, in fact many would say that have done the reverse.

and china and russia and probably all of the islamic countries, plus lets not forget Best Korea (grin).

there are a lot that feel its their right to snoop on other people's comms.

personally, I think this is a right that all people have, to comm in private and with NO one spying. period. full stop. ends never justifies this. I know I'm extreme on this but better this extreme than middle or moderate on the other way.

I used to travel to the UK regularly. I have not been in well over 15 years and have no plans to ever visit the UK again. sad, as it was a nice place, once (at least to a visitor). now, I'd avoid going there unless 100% necessary. and so far, no travel has ever come up to be 100% necessary.
