I see a "post" button, but it's transparent. You might have just looked through it.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
FWIW, it also looks like shit on the current FF.
OT reply: I wasn't drunk, but as soon as I saw Slashdot today, I was ready to get drunk!
We need to change the voting system to something that breaks up the two party system. That will remove a lot of the idiotic deadlock over some of these things that should be moved to the non-issue category.
Sadly, the only thing both parties agree on is the two party system.
Would you rather go to a pay model?
False dichotomy. "No ads" and "ads that pop-up or auto-play without permission" are not the only alternatives. I have no problem with text ads, and I don't mind non-flashing banner ads. Not all marketers are assholes.
Yeah, the 99% give the other 1% a bad name.
As a Virgo, I'm very skeptical of such things.
I've had dogs eat and/or poop on books. I've lost books in my "junk" room, otherwise known as the "Room of No Return". I've also had e-readers damaged, lost, or just went pfft for no reason, but I never lost any books that way. Worst case, I'd buy a new reader and DL the books from Amazon. I'd say the odds of losing an ebook from Amazon is less than the odds of my house burning down with its thousands of paper books.
If I took the subway/bus, I'd read on my iphone because that's what I have with me. At home, I can read on my iPad, but I'm more likely to read on my Kindle.
I still like reading dead tree books, but they are a problem to store & transport. I had a stretch when I wasn't buying books because I had no place to put them. Now, I don't have to worry about that. I also only had one book to read while waiting in the waiting room or auto place. Now I have any book in my library, and can even buy something new on the road.
Just because Buffet is richer than God doesn't mean he thinks he has enough.
Sometimes it's for FCC guidelines so it's at least related to government in such cases, but different radio stations exercise different disciplines. For example a song that references weed gets bleeped on one local station, but not another in my area.
The meaning of a word is not something that should be politicized...
Yup. I've seen "Die Hard" in the theater, and I've seen it on network TV. The words are very different in each.
I don't know any sources, but considering that the above said eight times more likely than terrorism, that's still pretty damn low.
Statistically speaking, I'll probably get killed by some woman driving a car while texting, eating, and applying makeup at the same time. But, to be fair, it probably will happen while I'm going to the mall.
I've heard some of the stuff in witches cauldrons smells like my plumbing.
I'd say that it confirms that Lenovo is a fishy company.
Last time I tried to install Linux, admittedly more than a few years ago by now, it was very much YMMV. Sometimes it WAS easier than Windows, but other times it was a royal PITA. With the same distro.
