I just noticed when posting a comment that I appear to be getting a 'Friend of a Friend' modifier applied to my own comments. This has only started happening since yesterday when I set a +1 bonus to all Friends of Friends. Apparently Slashdot has realised that one of my friends has marked me as their friend, so it's giving me the +1 bonus by mistake.
Roland Piquepaille writes "This is the promise of the 3-D Optical Data Storage system developed at the University of Central Florida (UCF). This technology allows to record and store at least 1,000 GB of data on multiple layers of a single disc. The system uses lasers to compact large amounts of information onto a DVD and the process involves shooting two different wavelengths of light onto the recording surface. By using several layers, this technique will increase the storage capacity of a standard DVD to more than a terabyte. Read more for additional references and a diagram showing how this two-photon 3D optical system reads data."
...you realise that only a poorly-coded game can be used to cheat in multiplayer, right? Any sane coder will keep the game state entirely in the server, so it's impossible to cheat by "hacking" the source at the client's end.
