Still can't find the moderate button. The source has it, so maybe it's a hidden element.
Thanx for the comment.
Thanx, looks ugly and buggy. No RSS? Signed up.
Wow, that does look bad! It's like their moving from document presentation to a controlled media platform. That will either fail or spawn a real "Internet 2.0". Heh, let's go fork the Internet.
I fixed the issue on my side: I deleted all slashdot cookies that had the "beta" in the name. I couldn't even reply with the beta. Moderation will now be coming to a JE near you.
I was sneaking around slashdot before, and now the front-page and journals all sow up in the beta. Removing "beta." from the URL is of no help. It reminds me of Windows 8, which made me switch away from Windows and to the Mac. Perhaps, we are now entering the Third Age of slashdot.
I thought The Usual suspects, along with any other movie where you can change the last 15 minutes and arrive at a completely different story, is stupid.
Nice writing style though.
A friend asked me how to change top-post/bottom-post in Thunderbird. He intentionally uses a strict white-listing ISP, so searching is difficult (and that is pretty much how he wants it). That ISP offers excellent service and support to those who want exactly that type of service. Nonetheless, the time comes when you have to ask someone else to find something out for you. A
At least i looked.
Apple wants you to use the app store for app management. If you use it, it's a simple click to update everything. Outside of that, it's an individual thing.
Apps are really mini file systems that should include all it's files. Hence, to delete, just delete the file. In reality however, some apps leave a footprint. AppCleaner does a decent (though not perfect) job. Or, just do it manually.
Ultimately, the macbook can be used as a cookie sheet.
Reply or moderate, reply or moderate. I replied.
Once, at the office, i requested a database driver for a server, and proceeded to find an alternative method until the official solution came.
Some months later (end of year?), i get a call from support asking if the issue was resolved. I explained to him that we were using a workaround. He asked if he could close the ticket.
I created a ticket to report a bug in Spreadsheet::ParseExcel on 8/23/11. Just got the reply today, 3/11/14. Is 2.5 years good turnaround?
Of course, the response was to reject the report and blame it on someone else.
I am mostly inactive here. I stopped reading the front page some time ago. As to JEs, "I sometimes write them to write. I many times write them for replies."/A>
It's come up before, how to backup JE posts. Maybe i should do that now. Do you have a script you are willing to share?
Backup, good point, i ought to do that.
Slashdot has been around almost two decades now. While it isn't what it was, it is something. A major change will likely hurt, but i don't think will kill it. Nerds are younger and different, maybe they need the change.
I never did that reddit thing. Didn't really check out the beta either.
Does http://slashdot.org/journal.pl... not work either?
