Re: Sound Off: Johansson in Luc Besson's 'Lucy' - What Did You Think? - http://www.firstshowing.net/2014...
"I went and saw it Thursday. Scientifically accurate? No way! A nice time to turn off my brain and enjoy the sight of Scarlett and hearing Morgan speak, and a damn fine chase scene, along with a few other nice visuals, you got it! Certainly what I needed. Yeah, character development could have been a little bit better, but the pace of the movie made that a bit impractical. I enjoyed it." - Bryan Price

"I didn't say install. I said BOOT to install. Yes, it took many floppies to actually install both Windows (1.0 and up) and Linux. And I'm curious as to just who is insisting that Microsoft is the only thing that can run computing? It certainly did not come from my mouth/typing. I really don't play the Operating System as Religion game. I have certain software that I need or want to run. It requires an operating system, and in my case, it requires Windows. For others, that might mean OS X. For others, they might have the choice of running anything, Windows, OS X, or Linux. If you have any choice, then you probably are going to go with what you already know. That's not the worst that you could do. Desktops aren't dead yet. Yeah, people aren't buying them like they used to, but then, they aren't replacing them because some new technology came out or some great speed improvement. My latest desktop compared to the old desktop has faster memory, USB 3.0 instead of 2.0, and a slightly faster..." - Bryan Price

"It certainly is Unix like enough, isn't it? Even the Wikipedia article says such about it. And yes, MINIX is a version of Unix, which again, surprise! Wikipedia says such about it. I've been using computers for longer than you've ever been on this earth. Unix, Xenix, TRS-Xenix, Linux (yes, it's Linux Is Not UniX, a recursive acronym har, har, har...), AIX. How many of those have you booted on your equipment?" - Bryan Price

Re: Linux is the quiet revolution that will leave Microsoft eating dust - http://www.rawstory.com/rs...
"Well, what is Linux but a version of Unix. Which has been around for how long now? Now, what I'm talking about here are the client machines, what people use, not the servers. The calling of the destruction of Windows has been going on for decades. Yes, decades. I remember booting Linux way back when, it took three diskettes to do so. We're talking about the Windows 95 era. When starting to install Windows 95 was one diskette (MS-DOS). And back then there was talk about how either Apple's OS (running on 68000 hardware) or Linux running on whatever hardware was going to take over the Windows market. We're still talking about that twenty years later. Will Windows finally falter at some future time and get replaced? I have no doubt. Will it be today's version of either OS X or Linux? Absolutely not. Part of the issue is that desktops and even laptops are going to become a lesser percentage of client machines. You've got your phones and tablets. That's part of that trend, although I don't..." - Bryan Price

Re: Attorney General: Gay marriage would cause harm - http://www.news4jax.com/news...
"You'd better hang on to your lady parts (if you, indeed, have lady parts). Gay marriage is going to be in all 50 states by the time it is over. And at the rate the pace has picked up, it will be sooner than later. The reasons Bondi gives are lurid and ridiculous." - Bryan Price

"The only way to find if any are is to listen to them and break the postal secret; to open all the digital letters and violate the privacy of correspondence.

Re: WB Addresses MAN OF STEEL 2 Opening Against CAPTAIN AMERICA 3 - https://www.amctheatres.com/movie-n...
"I think WB will be the ones to change the date. Marvel had already stated that they planned on releasing a movie on that date. Yeah, it was unnamed, but still, if WB really decides to go head to head with Captain America, I think WB will lose. I certainly am not that interested in Batman VS Superman. Bale isn't coming back for Batman, and I wasn't that impressed with Man of Steel. Marvel is pulling off fresh stuff. DC and WB, not so much." - Bryan Price

Re: Samsung Galaxy S5 (T-Mobile) - http://www.pcmag.com/article...
"Nit picking. The Note series did NOT have the faux leather plastic back cover. Only the Note 3. As a (former, I lost it) original Note owner, that one certainly only had the regular plastic cover. I will be replacing my Moto G (replacement for the Note, because it/I was CHEAP!) this summer, probably with the Note 3, but I will have a good look at the S5 and compare the two. This issues I see for me with the S5. I'm not interested in the fitness apps. They went to 3GB of RAM on the Note 3, but they stayed with 2GB of ram on the S5. I'm not really interested in a wrist device, let alone the latest and greatest. None of those issues are terminal." - Bryan Price

bytehead on Lots of shows are missing updates. - http://www.reddit.com/r...
"New user here (can't remember who or what pointed me to the extension the first time...), and I was wondering why things weren't updating. And I find myself here. :) I got CSI to update with your recommendation. (OK, it was the last episode of the season that it hadn't updated...), and now I have duplicate entries for SOME of the episodes. That may correct itself when I restart Chrome. Nope. I still have 4 duplicated episodes. Weird. However, some of the shows, like Cosmos, just say "Fetching episodes" and nothing happens. I'll let it sit and see if it decides to work, or not. I like this extension. I use TED, but the default torrent feeds are basically screwed. So, I would have to go through each and every one of them. Until the next batch no longer works... And so, I've been using it to just let me know that something should be up on the torrent sites, and manually search for them. I don't know what's up with TED either, ted.nu appears to have been flattened. It 302's to the default..." - Bryan Price

"The last time I had to deal with iTunes was six months ago. I found that MediaMonkey actually dealt with the iPod more in the manner that I thought it should be, but then my son lost his other, newer iPod, and took it back. Now, I throw MP3s on a thumb drive and listen to them in my car. It still uses and REQUIRES the Mac interface. Which, unless you use a Mac or have much more experience with Apple software than I'm willing to inflict on myself, leaves me wondering just which of the red, green and yellow icons (on the wrong side of the window no less) I need to click to either close it, minimize it, or make it full screen (if that is indeed full screen...). NO hover help. It's just easier to kill it through the Task Manager than to figure out which one I'm supposed to click. And I'd really just like to kill it by fire, period." - Bryan Price

"I have to agree with DudeAbiding. iTunes isn't even in the league of the red-headed stepchild. iTunes on Windows is an abortion because Apple wants you to buy a Macintosh to get the "full" and "correct" way of dealing with whatever iDevice you are trying to connect. The Cult of Mac strikes again. Yeah, this should at least work on other Android devices. But this is taking a page of Apple's own marketing plan. Will it be successful? Who knows." - Bryan Price

Re: Looking Ahead at Automotive Decisions - http://www.thesimpledollar.com/looking...
"I think your estimates on the cost of replacing all those batteries on the Prius are too low. A friend that was looking at buying a Prius that needed all the batteries replaced was said that it was just too costly, even with the attractive price, as the battery cost, an immediate out of pocket cost, would have cost another $2k. And nothing preventing another replacement down the road. I can't remember where I read it, but there was a survey that said most hybrid car owners would NOT buy another hybrid. IIRC, that was among owners who were happy with their vehicle." - Bryan Price

"Not really. theoldreader works for me, I'm used to it, and the $60/year that I spend will ensure that I continue to have it work for me. I was used to Bloglines, and only moved to Google Reader after the CF that went on after they got bought. I finally got used to Google Reader, and when I found that theoldreader worked similarly enough, I got hooked." - Bryan Price

Now, while I might be able to get that under 1000 by pruning the ones that haven't updated in awhile, I already got rid of the deadwood before I got off Google Reader." - Bryan Price
