Comment Your choice is absurd (Score 1) 382

The libertarians are totally clueless on immigration. Even among Anglo-culture whites, their is limited enthusiasm for their ideas. Amongst non-Anglo non-whites there almost no support whatsoever.

The libertarians are apparently content to ensure they remain marginal by being all in favor of importing an endless stream of folks who don't agree with them on anything.

Wake up and smell the biodiversity! The evidence is right in front of you.

You are comparing apples to oranges.

Population density of Denmark: 130 persons per sq km.
Population density of USA: 35 persons per sq km.

He said "Nordic Countries", not "Denmark". It's not hard to understand why you would conflate those terms when we look consider the other Nordic population density numbers.

Population density of Sweden: 21.5 persons per sq km
Population density of Norway: 15.5 persons per sq km

Feel free to explain again how Manhattan's population density in not high enough to secure the sort of internet access pricing that people in Finland enjoy.

The couch keyboard just needs to be compact and wireless.

The best way to solve the problem of using a mouse on the couch... is to use a trackball instead of a mouse.

There is a learning curve, but it's well worth it because a trackball gives you so much more freedom of posture than a mouse does. I use the wireless Logitech M570.

Comment exFAT requirement weakened SDXC (Score 2) 221

Besides the technical issues with exFAT, implementing it also comes with with the requirement of paying Microsoft royalties. That has done a lot of damage to the SDXC format by inflating the price of all SD cards larger than 32GB and encouraging many devices to stick to only supporting SDHC even though the SDXC spec is now more than 7 years old.

Comment YDL 6.1 on the PS3 (Score 4, Interesting) 232

Installing YDL 6.1 on my PS3 was my first Linux experience. I ran it over composite RCA to my TV so it wasn't much to look at, but it was step one in me becoming a computer guy.

I latter put YDL 6.2 on it and that had a much easier install, as I recall.

I went without upgrading to the OtherOS firmware for a year or so, but eventually some game I wanted to play required a newer firmware so I bit the bullet and installed it. I manually removed the Linux partition before the upgrade so I can't confirm whether the tales of the system not reclaiming the Linux partition if upgraded with it still in place were true.

Still have my PS3, only replaced the original 60GB HDD a few months ago. Didn't realize at the time I bought it in January 2007 I would be getting the most capable version of the hardware... early adoption went well for once. Only real downside compared to the newer models is how loud the cooling fans are.
