Journal: D&D Cofounder Dave Arneson has died

Journal by Fnord666
"APOLIS -- Dave Arneson, one of the co-creators of the Dungeons & Dragons fantasy game and a pioneer of role-playing entertainment, died after a two-year battle with cancer, his family said Thursday. He was 61. Arneson and Gary Gygax developed Dungeons & Dragons in 1974 using medieval characters and mythical creatures. The game known for its oddly shaped dice became a hit, particularly among teenage boys. It eventually was turned into video games, books and movies. Gygax died in March 2008." - The Huffington Post

Journal: Macworld | Editors' Notes | Will higher data plan costs hurt

Journal by Fnord666
This article on macworld is just a waste of server space. I especially like the second editor,

who's as gung-ho about the iPhone 3G as ever.

Apparently he has not one, but two 1st gen iPhones, yet he can't even get signal most of the time! He doesn't use text messaging, so why does he even have the thing? He could just as easily use an ipod touch and wifi to do everything else. Instead he is planning on getting an iphone 3G, which uses a faster network that he will get "the day before never". If this is the technical insight I can expect from macworld, I'm glad I don't subscribe.

In true Slashdot fashion, I'll just end with a question:

Why would anyone listen to this person?
