Nobody has ever been wronged by my policies - I'm not apologising to anybody.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
and I don't understand what's wrong with that.
It's like saying "There are so many different operating systems for so many different types of hardware that the computer market is too fragmented - so we won't produce any software"
It's silly. If you want those users then you make the software, if you don't then you don't. simple.
BTW, I'm in the throws of switching to Vista after being an Ubuntu user for many years. They don't like my bugs but Microsoft actually seems to care.
We are all members of a single ring species that encompasses all of life on Earth. It’s just that the ring is separated by time, rather than geography or physiology.
So, at some time in the future we'll evolve into a creature that can not only recreate the Tyrannosaurus Rex but also mate with it?
It is impossible to calculate a decimal expansion that depends on the value of pi without rounding the value of pi.
forall e such that member-of(everybody, e) : (calculating-decimal-expansion-depending-on-pi(e) --> rounds-pi(e))
And just install "NagBlock Plus".
I'd say your biologists are correct. Everybody rounds pi when calculating a decimal expansion that depends on its value, including yourself.
In these dangerous times when our children are receiving blunt traumas from even their classmates in ever increasing numbers due to violent games that desensitise our children to violence, especially video games that are so easily and cheaply available to even the youngest of children, I urge you all to join PAWAM.
Parents Against Whack-A-Mole is a non-profit organisation dedicate to protecting our children from the modern depravity and cruelty that is now pandemic in today's society. Membership is free, but, even if you don't wish to join, please make a donation today so that we can continue to help those suffering the effects of violent desensitisation.

Give 'em a broom instead of a class. They'll get the point.
Believe it or not, I have not set up an instant SMS upon each Thinboy00 slashdot posting... It took more than an hour to see your message.
0.0001% of statistics are made up by taking a recent software release version and stripping one of the dots.
At the time, some people could reproduce it apparently (I recall reading that a team at MIT did) but even then it was intermittent (as it was, too, for Pons and Thingy). I don't know how accurate the MIT account was.
Well, the Japanese have lots of savings. That sort of wealth is easily available there. Over in the west all we have is debt so we can't get that kind of service as quickly.
We already have fiber broadband over large parts of the UK. I had it installed nearly two years ago by Virgin Media.
Everybody that has their first child is one of those people that don't have kids. Since you credit having had one with providing the knowledge of the fun that ensues it is clear that the first child is not had for the fun, but the decision is made for some other reason...
Aka, pay attention at the back.
Hell, it could
People could book energy for particular slots of time. The cost of managing grid electricity would plummet.
The electric company would have to manage it to ensure that it really does draw the power it books, and draws it at the right time. But that's okay - it takes the risk out of it for the home-owner and pools it. For the grid operator, the risk is a tiny fraction (you need an awful lot of simultaneous failures to cause them a problem). The grid operator will also be well equipped to estimate the remaining risk, budget it, and limit the customer's liquidity at optimal times to minimise it - things the customer general isn't able to do.
