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).
Then you've got the people like me, who dual boot all of their systems (so we're already customers, anyhow).
I've seen this claim too many times now. I also dual boot for the few games that I cannot play under Linux, when I can be bothered - which is not often. Dual booting is a hassle, especially since it happens so seldom, it usually involves updating the Steam client, the games, and even Windows itself which takes forever. So I don't do it (anymore). If a game is only available for Windows, I no longer buy it. I have so many Linux games already, I have no need for something that I know I won't be playing.
There you go; at least one instance of "lost sale due to Windows only".
There is no such thing as a non-radiactive tritium reactor. That is a fact and a law of physics.
There is also no such thing as a non-radioactive sandwich, that's a fact and law of physics. (C-14 for instance.) What has that got to do with anything? That you use scare words like "unbelievably dangerous", "terrorists" and "suicidally stupid" only makes you seem less informed. You are just a greenpeace troll. Nothing to see here.
...so what would we call Hitler, then?
A convenient way to dismiss someone's argument with which you disagree, but really have no basis for your disagreement.
That's a nice name and all, but kind of hard to remember. I think I'll stick with "Adolf".
Please explain why wearing a beard displays a lack of discipline or lack of military readiness.
It is my understanding that beards are disallowed in the infantry, because they prevent the gas mask to properly seal around your face. (Same probably goes for fighter pilots, but in their case it's about the oxygen mask.) This would also explains why it was not a problem in the Civil War, when chemical warfare was not yet invented, or at sea where the risk of a gas attack is minimal.
Is this just security paranoia, or should the US preferably not use experimental facilities rather than allowing foreign companies to conduct experiments with them?"
secondary reporting in the Washington Post, the NSA intercepts deliveries of PCs and installs logging software or hardware on them before the customer receives them. According to a document cited by Der Spegel, interception is one of the NSA's "most productive operations"
Der Spiegel also reported that the NSA intercepts and uses Windows crash reports in order to gather information that is used to develop new methods to crack Windows machines."
