Koch-funded climate change skeptic reverses course
Authored by: Anonymous on Sunday, July 29 2012 @ 09:27 PM EDT
Oh dear ... where to start.
  1. Muller's bona fides as a one-time skeptic are seriously in doubt.
  2. His BEST (temperature) data does not adequately account for the quality of the weather stations whose measurements it uses.
  3. A new analysis, that does use the best standard for assessing the quality of met. data, shows half the warming that the BEST record purports to show.
  4. The BEST record is in serious disagreement with satellite and met. balloon data.
  5. Some people think Muller's announcement was timed to take attention away from, or blunt the impact of, a contradictory study which has just become public.
  6. Sadly, for most people, this is more about politics than it is about science.
U.S. Temperature trends show a spurious doubling due to NOAA station siting problems and post measurement adjustments.

Nonfree DRM'd Games on GNU/Linux: Good or Bad?
Authored by: Gringo_ on Sunday, July 29 2012 @ 11:43 PM EDT

"What does the use of these games teach people in our community?"

It teaches people that we are no longer dependent on Microsoft for games! Let's have three cheers - hip hip ... hooray! etc.

I am sorry but I didn't read the fine article. Richard Stallman is out to lunch. I develop proprietary software, and I am proud to say that, and proud to do that. I am not going to give you my software for free anymore than a cobbler is going to give you shoes for free or the carpenter is going to fix your porch for free or the electrician is going to rewire your house for free. Why should I?

Microsoft launches child friendly browser
Authored by: Anonymous on Monday, July 30 2012 @ 08:05 AM EDT
"designed to make parents feel better about leaving their
kids alone in a darkened room with nothing but a computer
for company".

Am i alone feeling that such is not a good idea regardless
the 'browser'.

Essentially this has the same problems as a virus-scanner:
It is an 'automatic' guardian, which
will -surprise-surprise- be imperfect. If a computer
gets 'infected' you can 'clean-re-install', but i'd want
to be a bit more cautious with the 'little ones'.

Allow me to suggest an alternative: I've used a laptop
with a defect LCD screen; took the screen off entirely;
connected the result with a VGA cable to the LCD TV, and
keep an eye, some guidance and company with the kid, and
never bother which browser....

Oh, and a laptop without screen revives some fond
memories of my -very-olden-days- 'home computer'.

Microsoft's Magic Mouse
Authored by: Anonymous on Monday, July 30 2012 @ 03:45 PM EDT
<resist comment?>Catching up with Apple again. The reviewer found
it "too short". Funny, I found Apple's too narrow. Anybody who
made one of these at a decent hand size would be sued by both :-(

Looks like I'll still have to wait for the wireless charger mouse pad too.
