Re: Time to Restore our Democracy - http://continuations.com/post...
"Again, the CR is not the forum for this debate in any way, shape or form. We've had 7 years to study the ACA with Romneycare and it is actually going pretty well, no matter what the extremists like yourself and Fox News say. Comparing it to Jim Crow laws? Ha, like I said, you've gone off the deep end and people realize it." - durbin

Re: Time to Restore our Democracy - http://continuations.com/post...
"The CR is not in any way the proper channel for discussion on the affordable care act. Debate occurred when the bill was being written and there was a big compromise by the democrats as many wanted a single payer healthcare system. The ACA is a republican idea don't you forget. Then the ACA was held up by the supreme court and then the people of the united states gave their stamp of approval by reelecting Obama. That is the problem with delaying it a year. You guys have officially gone off the deep end and thankfully the general public is acknowledging it." - durbin

"This perpetuates misconceptions in the startup world that all or even a significant percentage of new companies use VC funding as a means to grow. 99% of successful companies historically have not used VC funding. http://hbr.org/2013/05/six-myt.... There is a reason why none of the 16 schools listed in your survey has ever been ranked #1 in entrepreneurship by US News during its 20 years of ranking undergraduate entrepreneurship programs." - durbin

"I completely agree with your article about the frat boy environment in Silicon Valley and think we as a community need to take steps to change it. However, the reference to the question on Quora is out of context, that question is tongue in cheek and many of the answers are making fun of 'brogrammers'." - durbin

How to stream video to your XBox360 using Ubuntu + uShare « Question Nexus - http://nexus172.wordpress.com/2009...
How to stream video to your XBox360 using Ubuntu + uShare Posted by slayton on April 26, 2009 I’ve known for a while that the newest Xbox 360 software supports streaming video from a computer running Window Media Center. What I didn’t know is that when Microsoft added the media center capabilities they decided to use someone else’s media server standard; UPnP to be precise. This is really exciting because this means that anybody who implements this standard can stream video to an Xbox over the network. I run Ubuntu Linux and discovered that there are several programs you can install that will setup a UPnP Media Server, the one I picked to use is uShare. To install ushare I opened a terminal and ran: sudo apt-get install ushare After that I had to edit the ushare configuration file saved under /etc/ushare.conf If you don’t feel comfortable editing the file you can run to help you setup the configuration file. sudo dpkg-reconfigure ushare Here is how I setup my file (I’ve removed the... - durbin

Run, Python, Run! « Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger - http://hbfs.wordpress.com/2011...
The tool, RunSnakeRun, inserts hooks in the Python interpreter to build a report of where time is spent, a bit à la Valgrind/Kcachegrind but much simpler, and to display the results using both tables and a rectangular tree-structured inclusion graph (a “SquareMap”, see here). - durbin
