I ride to work on my bike everyday in every weather. I have several bikes and different clothing choices for different weather conditions. For me it is quicker than taking public transport (for which I'm refusing to buy tickets) and since I don't own a car I don't really have any other choice. It's just a matter of getting used to it and it provides some exercise, especially if you sit in front of a computer all day.
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).
Perl 6 is the developers equivalent of Duke Nukem Forever. I'll believe it when I see it.
Sorry, but I have to say I use an iPad for recipes and (if I wanted to) TV in the kitchen. Works great, no hassles.
I hope they don't use carbon dioxide for fire suppression in the data center....
There are browsers with Flash support available on iDevices, like Pidgin and others. Only the performance sucks.
This is indeed a real pain. We are using it to load balance our LMS at the university I work at and also offer WebDAV access to files in the system. Files are delivered via HTTP 1.1 chunked transfer encoding which is not supported in the backend. Apparently the nginx guys are working on a proxy plus module with limited HTTP 1.1 support (like chunked transfer encoding). Right now we are using a dedicated machine which is not behind the load balancer for the WebDAV traffic, which of course isn't an ideal solution.
Othewise nginx is really a fantastic little EngineX.
My mobile data plan is limited to 500 MB/month so I'm happy to be able to use a wifi when one is around. Also this is great for people traveling from other countries who do not have a local mobile data plan.
I think this is a great idea.
I just recently got a netbook and installed Ubuntu 11.10 on it - because the hardware support really isn't all that bad. Normally I'm a conservative Debian guy. After trying to convince Unity to look the way I want it to look and failing miserably I just did an 'sudo apt-get install xubuntu-desktop' and now I'm set. Really love it.
I have backup phone from 2005, a Motorola C113, monochrome screen, but I can call people from it. The battery still lasts a week if I it is just in standby.
Free as in software, not free as in support. Who is going to migrate this? I think their MS admins are probably just waiting for an opportunity like this.
As for Wikipedia, it also depends on where the servers are located.
I don't know if that is true. At least over here in Germany it doesn't matter where the servers are located, but rather where the publisher is located.
... around the time Slashdot came online, back in September 1997 and I've been (mostly) reading here ever since, being very proud to be one of the first readers. Thanks for all the great stories and links and all the best wishes for your unplanned future. I'll stay here and keep reading.
Well, your concept is wrong. You should use hamsters to generate the power, then store power in batteries and then get the pigeons to transport them. So you can get IPoAC and PoAC at the same time.
