VBDOS was amazing.
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).
when the sun becomes a red giant and the Earth goes *poof* (and, yes, I know it doesn't happen quite like that..) ?
That puts a time limit of some number of billion years on the existence of this planet. Hopefully we'll have left by then. And by we, I do mean me, I plan to live 42 trillion years.
Obama would probably use the money to socialize auto insurance. Or the legislation also makes everyone pay insurance by the mile.
Massive font size? First thing I did upon opening the page was zoom way in.
You insensitive clods with your perfect vision...
Mr. Welfare is already a general. How much higher are we going to promote this guy? Are people really suggesting we should provide for him too?
I'll have to hit the "agree" button on that. OMG, the gov'ment knows I'm sober. I think I'm ok with that. They can know whatever they want as long as I get to plead the third (I hate having sleepovers with soldiers against my will in peacetime).
afford to make more than 12 Warehouse episodes a season.
I was a huge fan of SG-1, and Atlantis was better than nothing, but SGU was about to lose my interest. The reveal of the bridge ALMOST took me back in, but it was not enough to overcome the poor writing. Death of Ginn. QED.
Oh, and not to mention that the premise of them being "the wrong people" doesn't jive with how they got to be the scientists and the defense of one of the most secret bases.
in a text editor.
That's why I always ride my bike like I'm on the wrong side of the Atlantic. Much better to see oncoming death than wonder when it is going to approach from behind.
What.. how... huh?
All that shows is someone not understanding their chosen license and getting angry that they didn't get credit for their work.
Restrictions in the name of freedom is not freedom. Perhaps what you mean is that BSD doesn't work quite so well in a world where people hunger for fame and recognition. I'd bet Data would be BSD if Soong lived long enough to perfect things.
Didn't the end of that quote just become "I know it when I see it"?
Why can't they let us change what units we want to see file sizes in?
Maybe I want all my file sizes in multiples of linear block size for the device in question (I only ever use desktop PCs where the devices have blocks of either 512 or 2048 bytes), or define custom units of the number of 128bit double quadwords in base 6.
Why not let the user decide? A program that opens a file is still going to get the number of bytes anyway (it can query the operating system to convert between the custom units).
About that goat... you'd be surprised. I probably shouldn't mention Soviet Russia at
all. That would just make it far worse.
