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).
"Ur" is a fairly common way to represent an origin or prototypical item of a set, as in a "ur-language" would be the mother tongue from which other languages spring. It seem to be being used in this context to mean more "all-encompassing", or a back to roots type thing, but the meaning still applies.
Why am I responding to an AC troll....
It's already on the InterWebs and just a matter of time before it's everywhere.
Except that it's not on the torrents yet:
The only people we know for sure who have the movie are Sony (who aren't releasing it) and the hackers (who definitely aren't releasing it)
And this idea is stupid as well. It looks like he thought "Hey, lots of sites have moderation systems, why not twitter" and then realized that it, like all moderation systems, would have some problems. How does that rate a whole discussion?
Is there a chrome extension that blocks slashdot stories with "Bennett Haselton" yet?

That's not what the OP wanted. Specifically, which stream has teh boobies.
That would be a totally different site, myfreecams.com
Duhh. Neither does the artist make any money.
So? The copy doesn't mean that downloader would have ever given any money to the artist if that was the only way to obtain the file, they might (probably) would have just gotten something else for free instead (or be willing to pay a lower, but not offered in the marketplace, rate). That's why we have all these new methods of paying artists like donations (pay what you want), kickstarter (like for the latest Zach Braff movie), indiegogo, etc. (as well as the traditional methods like t-shirts and swag and concerts, seeing the movie in the theater for the theater experience)
These are inherently ephemeral goods; there is no real world resource loss. Whether they get paid once or a billion times, the amount of work has not changed. Even if they never get paid, like plenty of artists who work their whole lives at their craft and never even make rent money.
If you can't make money doing what you are doing, then do something else.
"emulated in JSMAME, part of the JSMESS software package."
These guys made NPR fun to listen to.
they didn't just do that. they basically saved NPR back in the day and allowed it thrive and grow as their most popular program ever. That's why they're still playing old shows two years later.
Well, you are still taking the copy without paying for it. That copy still carries a value even when the plain act of copying does not involve any manufacturing costs. I can't believe how tough concept this often is for slashdotters.
I can't believe you still don't get it. Taking that copy causes NO loss of resources to the artist, the resources being used are by the sharer and the downloader. The artist didn't lose anything.
That the artist didn't get paid for that copy is irrelevant. That's just a failure in their business model. I can't charge you for every time you download and read this comment, even if I wanted to.
The thing you keep missing is that the artist (or record company, or estate or whatever) DOES NOT deserve to get paid for every single copy of their song, forever and ever. If you aren't making enough money doing what you are doing, then do something else.

Ha! Iceland... I had to google that name just to make sure your cat didn't walk on the keyboard...
Well other than the lack of outline mode. Which , annoyingly apple's Pages dropped recently too.
And which I have *no idea* how to find on the new fangled ribbon interface thing in modern Office either
You go to the "View" tab (the last one) and it's button number four.
I use outline mode all the time. (And I also like the Ribbon, which makes me a heretic around here.)
This is all well and good until you have http://legit.example.com/viewurl.php?url=http%3A%2F%2Fmalicious.example.com
And how does that php page get on the legit website? And if it's a redirect, then the final page will show the malicious URL.
