There's a reason they're recruiting them. And it's perfectly innocent. Honestly. http://earth101.net/?wc
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).
Mouse solves maze in 1 minute and twenty odd seconds, then navigates through its stored map in three seconds. Watch the two linked videos.
Various explanation have been posited from 'legal' to 'rights issues' to 'laziness'. In the end, without an official statement, we are all in the dark.
The clock is ticking to download as much as possible by the 29th of April — before Google throws the switch. Thereafter, Archive.Org has assigned a 140TB buffer for uploads into its 1 petabyte of storage space to house the preserved content. After the cutoff, downloaders can offload their content at their leisure.
The team from around the world, spearheaded and coordinated by Jason Scott, has been working solidly and altruistically. No selection criteria have been applied to the content; the idea is to preserve everything, if possible; however various team members have been working on collating word lists for searches: by concept, year, country etc. In this way they have a growing master list of some 2449000 unique video ID's to be processed of which around 15% are already saved.
You can help out. Please visit the wiki and the #googlegrape irc channel on EFNET, download the scripts and donate a little bandwidth and storage to preserve as much as possible before the cutoff date. There is less than a week left."

I have a VoIP service contract which provides me with one or more landline numbers (free incoming calls) that route to my SIP client via Wifi or GPRS. Outgoing calls are prepaid to the same VoIP provider and are shown on caller-ID as coming from one of the landlines. Missed calls are taken as messages and e-mailed to me as
Scout around for a VoIP provider. I use VoipTalk and never had a problem.
I know an organisation that can offer her a free personality test...
I agree absolutely. We don't know. But if it is proven to be frivolous Brother Paul's payment of the fees and having to endure the sanctions will be much sweetened by the bloody removal of one of his fingers on live television, backed by a brass band and dancing girls.
Ignorant? No, sir. Hilarious!
I still maintain that in addition to the dismissal of such a frivolous case should be the removal of one finger of all those who brought it. That would send the right kind of message.
Here's a long, long shot:

What?! No Hitchcock's 'Rope'!??!
[Please insert you list of overlooked films in a tone of outrage here.]
I hate what mankind's overpopulation and destruction of the environment has inspired in our benevolent masters, a subtle plan to reduce pollution by ruining the airport/airplane experience. So much so that I am on a personal boycott of all sex (unless forced to for pleasure, not reproduction). I know it will be awesome but I do it on Wednesdays.
What she said.
I wonder how in future people will use their cross-platform interface to expensive and by now widely implemented Final Cut Server, an interface written entirely in Java? Or their RAID management software, also written in Java?
Since the time wasted of my life can never be recovered, a punitive fine of ten times that wasted time removed from the telemarketing company CEO's life should be perfectly reasonable.
'Did you resent that waste of your time? Press *1 to remove one minute fifteen seconds from Mr M Sandon's life now.'
I understand it's an option on the latest Asterisk build.
