Comment The 2 factors that made me buy a 3d printer. (Score 1) 273

1. There's a certain number where something becomes an impulse buy. For me and 3d printers that was $200. Ultimately I decided that with inflation, I spent more on my original NES set years and years ago.

Makerbot could have killed it at that price, and still can if they can figure out how to do it at this price.

2. The only hurdle past price is having the needed skills to create things in 3d. Printing other peoples stuff off the web gets old after a while. Luckily the 3d modeling software I taught myself to use really well can output STL files.

Comment I'm downgrading to 7 (Score 1) 119

A little late for some quality karma whoring here but....

We have some NVR software for our IP cameras. I thought it would be a good idea to upgrade the VM running it to windows 10. Huge mistake.. I can't fsck'ing control when the damn things reboot. (This is 10 pro)

So I'm downgrading our NVR machines to win 7. Sorry MS, 10 works great on the desktop, my GPO objects mostly work, but this reboot thing is a HUGE issue.

You're right. I'm wrong. So I'll go ahead and move the goalposts :) This whole thing feels like a lot of smoke with no fire to me. Technically Clinton performed "illegal acts" if she jaywalked. From the FBI itself:

All the cases prosecuted involved some combination of: clearly intentional and willful mishandling of classified information; or vast quantities of materials exposed in such a way as to support an inference of intentional misconduct; or indications of disloyalty to the United States; or efforts to obstruct justice. We do not see those things here.

I did a quick 5-minute search and couldn't find out if NARA is considered "guidelines" or "law", or what penalties violations carry. I'm more inclined to consider violations an oversight rather than intentional obfuscation, considering what was found in the released emails. The alternative is that the Clintons used their server for evil for years, then became squeaky clean after an arbitrary date for which we have leaked data.

Your laundry list of other laws isn't very compelling without evidence. Those are the laws she's accused of breaking, by people who haven't been able to gather enough evidence to make a case.

To convince me that Hillary is guilty of anything more than "being bad at email", you're going to have to produce a lot more. As I said, she may have technically performed "illegal acts", but I've yet to see a piece of evidence suggesting she's anything more than an aging bureaucrat who made some technical mistakes. Nothing that rises to the level of bribery or corruption being accused.

Snowflakes who cannot accept the historic loss of thier presidental candidate have created a "post-truth" reality for themselves

That's...not actually what post-truth means, unless you're suggesting these "snowflakes" actually believe that Trump hasn't been elected president and won't reside in the White House for the next four years.

Expressing displeasure at a truthful reality is the exact opposite of "post-truth".

You may have the wrong idea about Assange. He's either in the Kremlin's pocket or has his own (non-truth-related) agenda. https://twitter.com/wikileaks/...

#PanamaPapers Putin attack was produced by OCCRP which targets Russia & former USSR and was funded by USAID & Soros.

Without any evidence, the only group he defends during the Panama Papers scandal was Russia.

Russia needs to have sanctions against it. They have literally been invading their neighbors and taking their land. Should there not be consequences for that?

The reason they have been searching for months for a diverse female lead is that they are looking for some real diversity. Hollywood has tons of tons of actors of every ethic or ethnic-mix persuasion, hoards of actors of every sexual persuasion and gender-identity, abundant of actors of every of religion you can imagine. But they wanted to push the envelope and find some real diversity.

They put out a lead casting call across all of Hollywood, seeking Actress who was Republican. Two weeks into the search they thought they finally had someone for the part, but it turned out to be Clint Eastwood in a dress.

Thirded. I've owned three inkjets over the years and they were a constant source of frustration. I bought a color laser printer and it Just Works every time. If you can afford the initial cost, you'll save money in just a few years. More importantly, printing is no longer a thing I dread.

I love the /. mod system. +5 Interesting despite literally every response saying I'm wrong.

I'll bow to the collective knowledge of people actually suffering from motion sickness. Maybe there's some other technologies that could be added to autonomous cars to fix it, but simply putting up dark curtains sounds like it won't be enough.
