I've a second cousin who authored a frequently-used bit of software: his name was on the Help - About... page for Windows Calculator until the version released with Win95. Mom always got a kick out of that.
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).
I did. Just now. And if I get a whiff that they are supporting this nonsense, I'll do it again and convince friends and family to join me. Mikulski brought home the bacon and made NASA Goddard a good place for my pop to work for thirty years... but this is more important.

Dress (balmoral, leather sole): Black leather dress shoes (cap toe). Brown leather dress shoes (perf cap toe).
Workday (derby, rubber sole): Brown leather dress boots (perf cap toe). Brown leather (plain toe). Soon to acquire a pair of black leather dress boots.
Specialty: sandals, climbing shoes, MTB shoes, crocs.
That's thirteen and I still don't feel like all my bases are covered -- I'd like a nice pair of black patent balmorals for the dozen times a year I've got to be in a tuxedo.
I'm backwardly fortunate that my feet are obscenely long and narrow. It's easier to justify not buying shoes when they simply don't exist in US 14AA.
Monocular vision does not lend itself to experiencing 3D on a 2D screen. We will never own a 3D TV. If the writing is ever on the wall and they're all that's left, we'll stop watching.
Have a look at some of the photos that Hanebrink has posted. Seems to me like they know a thing or two about testing. It's in a wind tunnel, presumably a refrigerated one.
If I had to guess, I'd figure the trickiest bit would be coming up with chain lube and bearing grease that weren't completely useless... and replacing a broken chain while wearing heavily insulated gloves.
