Long Live Xirzon!

The Dude


Sugar != milk

^matthew: "And at night his mum, Sally, often sent him to bed with a glass of coke and a bar of chocolate."

FDA to continue enforcing its laws against marijuana, even in states that allow it

scone_of_stone: pretty much confirms to me that marijuana == good


scone_of_stone: now your animal's gone, what does it take to turn you on? (o-o-on o-o-o-n)

Mac OS X Hit By 6 New 0-day Bugs


coderman: "Extropians share an optimistic view of the future, expecting considerable advances in computational power, life extension, nanotechnology and the like. Many extropians foresee the eventual realization of unlimited maximum life spans, and the recovery, thanks to future advances in biomedical technology, of those whose bodies/brains have been preserved by means of cryonics."
scone_of_stone: yeah, but they're wrong.
coderman: "extropianism stems from the transhuman tradition of F.M. Esfandiary and as conceptualized by More, places strong emphasis on rational thinking and practical optimism." -- LOL, failed!

testosterone == pwned

coderman: "Catching sight of a pretty woman really is enough to throw a man's decision-making skills into disarray, a study suggests. The more testosterone he has, the stronger the effect, according to work by Belgian researchers."
coderman: "Dr Siegfried DeWitte, one of the researchers who worked on the study, said: "We like to think we are all rational beings, but our research suggests ... that people with high testosterone levels are very vulnerable to sexual cues."
^matthew: Once again, science is just now catching up to what we've all known forever.
coderman: also notice the lack of "fed hunks" and the plethora of "fed chicks"
scone_of_stone: all chicks are feds mang
scone_of_stone: info about the finger length thing. sounds totally dodgy. remember, experts are scum.
seti: dodgy is putting it mildly...

Wired: Wikipedia is the largest and most comprehensive collection of arguments in human history

wmf: ouch. it's like he channeled Orlowski AND Danny O'Brien
scone_of_stone: "Wikipedia exists in a state of quantum significance flux. It's simultaneously a shining, flawless collection of incontrovertible information, and a debased pile of meaningless words thrown together by uneducated lemurs with political agendas."
scone_of_stone: It's all about freedom.
seti: eat your freedom cookies and have them too!


coderman: "Since 'Illuminati' translates to 'enlightened ones' in Latin, it is natural that several unrelated historical groups have identified themselves as Illuminati. Often, this was due to claims of possessing gnostic texts or other arcane information not generally available."
wmf: or leet source code
coderman: wmf++

wanna se my brand-new imac? 'sure, i can't afford one.'


wmf: sweet, we got pride! my favorite!

dmcrypt versus loopaes

coderman: "Loopaes is faster and puts less load on the cpu in all tests except 'stat' and 'rewrite' using RAID5. However, dmcrypt is often not far behind: either method is a fine choice."
coderman: and much faster when XCRYPT enabled on a padlock core, and loop-aes also does key scrubbing, which is nice.
coderman: Winner: loop-aes! yay!

eBay safe payment (and non compete payment systems) policy

coderman: e-gold : verboten
coderman: liberty dollars : verboten
coderman: FUCK YOU PAYPAL : accepted
coderman: oh well, i have to use paypal for network.com grid services anyway...

FPGA Offload in an Opteron socket

coderman: "The modules result from work done by FPGA pioneer Steve Casselman, who is a co-founder and CTO of the company. Casselman told us that he had been waiting for something like Hypertransport to come along for years and that AMD's opening up of the specification almost brought tears to his eyes."
wmf: but it brought something else to coderman's pants
coderman: indeed
