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).
Who knows what we'll know in another hundred years. One thing is for certain, those that close their minds and believe we know all we can ever know, will not be the ones to find it out.
Actually, I've changed my mind. Most of the readers of this will already be rolling their eyes, I'm not going to waste my time stating the obvious... The AC can come back and ask for more if he/she requires...
I'm going to go and continue breathing the free air I have, and drinking the water of which I pay for...
they have all the unskippable bullshit stripped out.
I'm in the UK and whenever we go to the cinema and one of those really annoying FACT warnings appears, she tells me to "sssh!" because she knows I'm about to start a rant. "I've already paid for the fcuking film! Stop bugging me with all this crap!". Murderers get less time time than potentially available for copywrite infringers.
The only people that don't have to watch those bloody annoying warnings that are unskippable at the start of DVDs are the people who have bloody pirated it!
None of my friends seem to notice this, and look at me funny when I have a rant about it. "But Dave, it's to stop pirates...."
This is well known to you lot, I know this, but this really gets up my goat, so apologies for the rant...
Also, it's Bruce Perens. Hi!
