Re: I Wish You Luck
I have 2 Lenovo laptop tablet things with Atom processors. Low power, decent SSD performance, but slow as hell for normal operations. As a consequence, they rarely get used for anything but Netflix.

Now don't get me wrong, diversity is good. However, in the workforce, you shouldn't hire someone because of the 'features' they posess. You hire them on their ability. If that happens to be a white female, then great. If it's an Asian male, then great. Do NOT hire because it ticks a stupid box for the mental HR department.
1) FOUR replacements of a computer: the idiot operator BIOS level was too low to understand that it is a tray for a disc, not an ejectable cup holder.
Cup holder?! Rubbish! It works fine as a cup holder. It's only when you use it as a step ladder than the bloody cheap plastic drawers let go!
My neighbour asked if his computer could run the HTC Vive after I was demoing my toy to him. They get rather insulted by hysterical laughter, and pointing out that their $2000 AIO machine is just a glorified tablet. They don't understand that a $1000 graphics card (alone) is what is required to play games with any sort of resolution and framerates.
"Dremel cutting discs that will cut titanium and other hard metals, on anything a couple of millimeters thick or more it's going to use up a few cuttings discs and take quite a bit of time, which this chap didn't have."
Not to mention the heat build up of said cutting disc on the band!!! Probably needed the fire department nearby to extinguish the phallic flames!
The brainiacs already dropped FTTP/FTTH in favor of the cheaper FTTN. My suburb was enabled last week, and they have already managed to botch my request up....here's to waiting another 2 or so weeks to have it botched again.
The morons driving this project should be shot. I read on whirlpool and even the Telstra crowdsource wiki pages, about the complaints about FTTN's speed, or lack thereof. Many FTTN connections are in fact, slower than their previous ADSL connections.
Would the huge 1 degree deviation be due to the better quality sensors we are now using? I mean, surely the digital probes are a lot more accurate than the old mercury bulbs. And who's to say the the bulb didn't slip down the scale for a few years skewing the data :)
I'm not denying that we should be more aware of our interaction with the environment, but comparing temperatures from the 1800's is about as useful as comparing TV screen resolutions from the same eras.
I believe what Magnetic was referring to was the "Software Patents" which always seem to drag such heated arguements. Patents that are not for a physical medium. I would definately like to see the software patents thrown into a different category, and would support a 3-5 year holding policy. As for medical research, I'll keep my folding PC's running looking for that cure for cancer :)
Just ask all the Linux supporters what they think about software patents.....
I'm more than certain that me blaming someone hacking in for stealing the song would NOT go down in a court of law. SONY are a$$holes and I can honestly say that I haven't bought a single product from them since the original 7801 Playstation. Nor will I in the future, they aren't worthy of my money.
I agree with above. If he was a sole 'hacker' who pulled his 360 apart to tinker with it, then I'd say it was an unfair case. HOWEVER, he was selling modified consoles, so therefore advocating piracy. What did he expect MicroSoft to do, send him a thankyou card? Seriously, he's gonna do some time and deserves to.
I'm all for tinkering, and I do on all my consoles and PC's etc (except the 360, i love LIVE too much). I don't believe anyone should be selling a service to modify consoles. If the end user isn't clever enough to tinker, what right do they have in expecting mod's be done for them.
