    And in the same vein, there's the RPG motivational posters [cruisegazing.com] that I submitted some days ago (and were rejected as not news for nerds).

    The hosting company is stupid stupid stupid!

    Why the @#*&! do the require a password before they will allow someone to give them money!? With a hundred hits per second or so of Slashdotters getting the "Bandwidth limit / Please try again later" message, you know it would be a whopping 29 seconds before some random visitor tosses $2.95 into the pot just to see the damn page.

    Ok... if they are worried about legal issues relating to authorisation from the original site creator to continue serving the content, fine. Just put a check box on the account creation page to saying "Allow anonymous donatations to help pay my bandwith bill?" and default the checkbox to "accept" while you're at it.

    It's good for the hosting company. It's good for the site creator. It's good for vistors to the site. It's a Win Win Win all around.

    Hmmm, I don't know about that... It seems like this pay-per-view model of internet browsing could destroy the "free-ness" or open-nature of the internet. I guess there are already plenty of sites where you have to pay to see certain content, but this seems different somehow and not in a good way. Then again, I was never accused of being an optimist.

    60's were strange. We had various bad news war coverage all the time, still civil rights issues, riots, etc. but when it came to space, it's like everything stopped. All the channels covered space shots, they would suspend regular programming and just follow it all day long. Just about everyone loved it. It was something to just feel good about. So when we got a modern (for then) space show, it...took off is the word. Even though it was cancelled quickly, and no one really knew why besides the producers. And yes, I think that was the real kick in the pants decade for tech advances, although we are getting a LOT more now, it just seemed and felt more important then. Now it is normal to hear about fantastic advances, back then it was still exciting, even if by modern standards they weren't all that special or innovative. You just *knew* neat stuff was coming, it wasn't there yet, but it would be soon.

    "I'm under the impression that the 60's was a heck of a decade for a geek like me, I'm just fishing for more info. It must have been an interesting time when computers weren't ubiquitous and all the new ideas were bubbling to the surface. Then the moon landing... wow."

    Moon landings- wow! Yes!

    I could not said this as well, so forgive the in mass quote. I hope this formats to give "zogger (617870) " full credit for a good reply.

If entropy is increasing, where is it coming from?
