11/3    Far Cry 2.  Meh.  Played on PC.
        Open world, too much time spent in a vehicle.  AI is stupid, and forget
        using silcened weapons, because as soon as anyone 100 feet from anyone
        else goes down, everyone knows where you are.  I'd like to enjoy the
        scenery without people always shooting at me.  How did they make hang
        gliders boring?  The story is thin, the ending is extremely
        unsatisfying.  Technically very strong (Ubi Montreal again).

11/3    Sodans with families, do not cross the Bay Bridge today or tomorrow,
        just in case.  You have a lot to lose.  I am staying home in a safe
        suburban area where my parents live.
        \_ I don't have a family, does that mean it's ok to cross the bridge?
        \_ you're a moron.
        \_ Why?
        \_ Why do you think Rich Sodans live in SF?  Maybe they are getting
           more value for their dollar in Oakland.
        \_ Did you read that funny story about how Oakland PD are putting
           together riot squds, in the Washington Times?  You should forward
           that to the Oakland PD.
           \_ You've been trolled.

11/3    Dear Prop 8 fanatics:
        http://www.google.com/search?q=prop+8
        Click on the advertisement that goes AGAINST your belief. Congrats!
        You've wasted your opponent 15-50 cents. Send this message to
        your friends!!

11/3    Obama, a former constitutional law professor, said last year that he
        would look for candidates with "the heart, the empathy, to recognize
        what it's like to be a teenage mom. The empathy to understand what
        it's like to be poor, or African American, or gay, or disabled, or
        old."  Oh good, wouldn't want judges to just, you know, apply the law.
        \_ This was on the motd 6 days ago.
        \_ GOOD. I hate rich white people. They need to get the fuck
           out of MY California.
        \_ The implication is that under judges appointed by the GOP, the law
           has not been applied fairly to the people he lists. His appointments
           would bring balance to the Force. He is the vergence.

11/3    What's a Slash Dot equivalent site for photography? I'd like
        to learn about the latest announcements from Micro 4/3 and
        the Canikon world, as well as stuff like AlienBee's cool
        remote commander modules that beat the CLS system.
        \- once upon a time, http://photo.net
        \_ here is a hint for you: actually take photographs, instead
           of spend all day at front of web looking for latest news in
           equipment.  If you one day sit down and divid dollars you spend
           on equipments by number of photo you took, you will be a very
           sad person.

based computer that requires authorising. All the syntax that I have seen in var\
ious posts does not work (e.g. smb://username:password@machine/queue ). I was wo\

via smbclient works just fine.

11/3    Woah, did software patents just go away?
        http://www.itexaminer.com/us-court-throws-out-most-software-patents.aspx
        \_ In light of FN 23 in IN RE BILSKI, reports that software patents are
           are dead are greatly exaggerated:

           "[W]e decline to adopt a broad exclusion over software or
            any other such subject matter beyond the exclusion of
            claims drawn to funda mental principals set forth by the
            Supreme Court. ... We note that the process claim at issue
            in this appeal is not, in any event, a software claim.
            Thus, the facts here would be largely unhelpful in
            illuminating the distinctions between those software claims
            that are patent-eligible and those that are not."

           For those who are interested, the opinion (132 pages) is available
           at: http://www.cafc.uscourts.gov/opinions/07-1130.pdf

11/3    "Obama's grandmother dies a day before election"
        http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/obama_grandmother
        Poor lady.  Couldn't hang in there for even one more day.
        \- i'm pretty unsentimental at the passing of strangers
           but this is poignant and moving. it's like a literary
           epic part of "obama story".
           \_ So... does her absentee ballot count or not?
        \_ Unless of course he loses, then many it's a good thing.
        \_ Unless of course he loses, then maybe it's a good thing.
        \_ He's not gonna lose.
           \- i think it's kinda funny how many rational scientific
              non-supersticious believers in science/math/stat are
              worried about generating bad mojo and assuming it is
              a "slam dunk".
        \_ Even his grandmother would rather die than live under his
           administration.
        \_ that pic he has of him and her that they gave to CNN for
           the story is one of the best pieces of propaganda i've seen.

11/3    Here's a gas/diesel/biodiesel/ethanol/vegatable-oil + compressed-air
        hybrid, with plug-in capability:
        "Air Cars: A New Wind for America's Roads?"
        link:www.csua.org/u/mth (finance.yahoo.com)
        Range:
        - 60 miles at 35mph on one plug-in "recharge" alone.
        - 800 miles at freeway speed on one tank of gas/diesel/whatever alone
          (106mpg).
        \_ And of course it's ridiculously tiny and impractical.  Guess what,
           a tiny ass car like that with just a plain ol' gas engine would
           already get great mileage.
           \_ The Smart ForTwo doesn't get gas mileage anywhere close to this.
              In fact it doesn't even have better gas mileage than the Prius.
              \_ The Smart is bigger than this thing, can carry luggage, and
                 actually meets safety and performance standards.
                 http://www.itmdi-energy.com/news/airpod_launch-091008.php
                 "can be driven up to 70 km/hr" (43mph)
                 The car has 5.45 hp "maximum".  This is basically a golf cart.

11/3    Hey, did you know that about 50% of electricity in the US comes from
        coal?
        \_ "Under my plan of a cap and trade system, electricity rates would
           necessarily skyrocket."
           http://canadafreepress.com/index.php/article/6016
           \_ cap and trade is silly.  Just plain-old carbon tax on it would
              be a lot more effective
        \_ Currently, most vehicles in the US don't use electricity from
           external sources.
