Submission + - SSD VS Raid VS SCSI 2

the_Bionic_lemming writes: Since Intel is going to focus on slower speeds and saving energy, and finding it out while I was in the midst of having to replace my home PC I decided to go with haswell 3.5 six core. Since that choice requires investment i was going to buy 4 seagate constellations and RAID 10 them, but my buddy started talking up using SSD as a boot drive and ditching a RAID. I want to build a fast PC, but the tradeoffs between SSD and a farm of decent drives are muddled by all the conflicting reviews i read. So what would you do? What is the ideal drive set up for Gaming PC?

Submission + - MST3K Kickstarter about to break record (kickstarter.com)

the_Bionic_lemming writes: Recently Joel Hodgson, the creator of Mystery Science 3000 that had a successful run of over 197 shows has after 15 years launched a kickstarter to relaunch the series. Previous MST3K Is Kickstarting Back To Life, MST3K Successfully Crowdsources Its Comeback.
In just over two weeks Joel has been wildly successful in not only having over 25000 fans contribute, but actually scoring the second highest show kickstarter on record — he has just under two weeks to shoot past the Number 1 kickstarter, Veronica Mars.

Additionally , Joel had an eight year old girl write in during the long series run , and they did her letter on the air (something the fans loved — having their mail on the air) . A few days ago, Freezepop's Ashley (who was that 8 year old girl) sang a wonderful tribute with Joel for the Kickstarter .

Censorship

Submission + - Good search engines that do not censor? (searchenginewatch.com)

the_Bionic_lemming writes: A friend of mine asked me to help him find some cigars, and I told him to use google shopping to get the best prices. Much to my surprise, the search yielded 0 results.
I then looked around and found an article that talks about google also censoring guns from search results.

Since I haven't done much shopping online, are there any good non censoring web sites left that allow adults to shop and buy things they are legally entitled to buy?

So far all I have is these.

Programming

Submission + - When an LLC fails 2

the_Bionic_lemming writes: "About a Year ago my father started a LLC with two other partners. He asked me to help get him a web presence so I hosted with an online host and set up their website on the name of their new llc. I created the basics, modded some photo's for them, and then expanded it with custom contact pages and patchworked a decent site for them. I then searched for an easier URL for them to type in and found a catchy one that fit in well with what they are doing. They immediately switched to using this on their t-shirts, coffee mugs, contact cards — etc. Since it was family, I never billed for work as I was to be hired on when it grew to a sustainable level to justify adding a tech department and would receive a good bonus as well. The partners now want to dissolve the llc, kick my dad out, and reform the LLC.

Now, I never got paid for any of this, so my question is, do I still own my code, and more importantly, what are my rights since I want my dad to reform his own company under the URL I purchased and allowed him to use?"
Space

Submission + - Virgin Galactic Explosion

the_Bionic_lemming writes: An explosion at an airport home to Scaled Composites — the builder of the first private manned rocket to reach space — killed two people and left four seriously hurt Thursday, a Kern County Fire Department official says. It happened at the Mojave Air and Space Port during a test of a new rocket motor for SpaceShipTwo — a spaceship being built for Virgin Galactic, Richard Branson's space tourism company, a source said. The motor uses nitrous oxide, the source said.
