Journal: Farewell Slashdot!! 2 2

Yes, Hello.

It would seem after many years of posting to slahsdot I've been struck with a "bitchslap" and have thusly decided to retire, rather than fight against the humourless cretins who wielded their heavy handed justice on my account.

Comment: Sega (Score 1) 497 497

Will Sony be the next Sega? This appears to be a really innovative product, assuming all these "specs" aren't just marketing hype. Surround sound out of a handheld? PS2 GFX on a 1.25" screen? Riiiight...

Anyway, it reminds me a lot of sega, when they produced all those incredibly innovative products, like the SegaCD, the Nomad, the 32X followed by the 64X. However, despite the high quality of these products...nobody bought them. They were too ahead of their time. Now Sega's been relegated to the trash heap of gaming history. M$ seems to be where most of the gaming innovation is these days. With M$ gaining more and more market share with their XBOX, how long before Bill Gates introduces a handheld with features people really want, like video monocles and a direct nueral interface?

Journal: Racisms on Slashdot? 1 1

I am finding some people are not being nice on Slashdot. A lot of people are funny yes and I take joke but some people are sometime offensive. I do not racial stereotype so do not stereotype me!

If you as American were to come to People Republic Of China and say things about your country you would not be shout at as crazy American or as fake so why do I get shout at here?

I am considering inviting my brother or other member of staff on here but need to watch out first..

Journal: Summer vacation!! 2 2

Hello gentle friends,

I've just returned yesterday after spending a month lounging in the South of France, sallying from one nude beach to the next whilst partaking in only the best French wines known to mankind. First, I want to say that the French women are Ohhhh Lala!! And secondly I want to say that the french food is Ohhh lala!! Sadly I've burned through my Q1 profits and need to get back to work, however I should have some time for slashdot until the next contract gets ironed out.

Comment: Re:The great slashdot hypocrisy (Score -1, Offtopic) 125 125

I don't actually spend any time or effort on my reviews. I share them with the people who actually write them and post them to amazon dot com, just like slashdot posters share mp3's and movies with the bands and movie studios who put the music/movies out.

I thought it was accepted on slashdot that information wants to be free (free like not spending money for things you can find on the web or napster) but all the reviews I've been sharing have been moderated to minus 1.

How can I view this as anything but pure unadulteratd hypocrisy?
