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).

Is the module GPL'd, or does it taint the kernel?
On second thought (and without RTFM'ing) I'll go out on a limb and say that an album taints the kernel regardless of license.
Okay, what about battery? Does it last a few weeks on a charge like a good old Nokia? If not, why not? Why this incessant focus on processing power? Having to charge my phone daily (or more frequently!) is where the pain is if you ask me.
I don't normally care for "me too" comments, but the day this slashdot beta is forced on me is the day I stop reading slashdot. And that's sad, since it's been part of my morning routine for the last 16 years or so.
But yeah, fuck the bigfonted blogified facebookie beta, pardon my french.
It's really very straight forward - simply submit whatever the current top story on
The next brain-melting thing to consider is that, perhaps, everything moves at the speed of light - not through space, but through spacetime. But because most of the stuff we're familiar with - the Earth, the stars, etc - shares roughly the same path through spacetime, we don't experience it like that. All of our speed is taken up with travel into the future. We could swap a bit of it for travel through space if we accelerate.
Thank you! That's the first coherent explanation I've read that allows me to reach some sort of understanding of this!
I've got a really cool idea! We should totally get slashdot to get someone to read and tidy up the posts before they're well posted. You know, edit them to make them more readable. We could even give those people a title, say, "editor"....
This. So much this. Get the editors to, you know, edit, and improve the quality of the stories. That's what would make a positive change, not adding tons of white space and eye gouging/candy.
If this new designed is forced upon me, I will finally stop reading slashdot, even though it's been part of my morning "ritual" for the last 15+ years.
Any name specified with a trailing dot will not have a local domain or search domain appended.
I'm sorry, but if it's available to all and sundry on the internet, it is no longer secret, let alone Top Secret. The cat is out of the bag, the genie is out of the bottle, the train's left the platform, etc.
If institutions fail to adapt to the changing world, that's their problem, not the world's.
Let's attach a tazer to each of the "editors", and hand out "tazer points" in addition to mod points using the same scheme. Apply same as usual moderation, only with more painful effects! I am quite confident this would remove the dupes in short time.
All in favor say "aye"!
So how is anyone, courts included, meant to unpublish something? Unless a security researcher is saying "in X days I'll release the details on vulnerability Y" how would you even know to get a court injunction against said person? Once the cat is out of the bag, that's it.
Of course, I can then see the "logical" progression that all vulnerability disclosure must be outlawed - think of the children!
Editor. I do not think that word means what you think it means...
It's as the US is trying *really really* hard to isolate itself from the world. Sadly, I'm getting closer to the point of saying "good riddance" in response
