FBI offers $10,000 bounty for arrest of laser-wielding idiots

Facepalm

This...

This is why we can't have nice things.

For those of us that enjoy popping balloons or slicing a cat into lunchmeat with our reasonably powered personal lasers, we have to suffer because some asses have no common sense.

Unfair, I say, unfair!

Re: Quake, iD, Doom.

Ahhhhhh geez, the "medical" scene in Quake 4 is and will always been a major favorite of mine. Just figuring out what is going on and the feeling of helplessness was wonderful. The the reveal during the briefing. Then the kicking ass afterwards.

I had played a lot of games at that time, but I remember, as I peeked up from behind a barrel for a quick peek, that I was actually seeing the real reflection of a Skarrj walking on a shiny floor and dying once because I found it so fascinating. Not so exciting now, but back then, that was a prett amazing thing.

Google 'disappoints' US congressman over Glass privacy controls

Samizdata
WTF?

Seriously though. The US Goverment, post PRISM, bitching about privacy and sousveillance? Methinks maybe the Big G is being less forthcoming with access to Glass data and specifications than the Fed likes.

Already dealt with it...

Had to clean up a case pre-automated detection. Sort of a pain, but I whupped it.

I have been beta testing Pertino for a while and it is a pretty nifty tool. In fact, the biggest problem I have had with it was finding new use cases as it is so flexible.
