The titles remain as a throwback to Usenet discussion threads. Mainly because Slashdot users refuse to leave that era and progress with the rest of the world. We fear change. Take the current uproar over Beta for instance. I remember a similar uproar the last time Slashdot had a major overhaul (which really wasn't all that major).
I also never noticed them needing a charge.
They are charged by sticking them in a replecator and ordering a cup of earl grey tea.
Seriously, I learned this the hard way when I used to put my pencil in my front pocket walking between classes and forgetting to take it out before I sat down. You don't put things that don't bend in your pocket on the one place on your body that does bend with the most force. Bananas? ok. sausages? sure. Fish? unfrozen. Pencils and high tech gadgets? NO!
I'm confused. You do know it was the Slate article that debunked the BS ipod bricking the prosthetic story, right? Or did you not actually read that article?
RISC is good!
Since when does a discussion on Slashdot require having actual information?
What don't you believe? That SCOTUS made a good decision for once? Or that you missed First Post by that much?
"I am sorry, but I think what you're asking for here is impossible. I don't feel that forking truecrypt would be a good idea, a complete rewrite was something we wanted to do for a while. I believe that starting from scratch wouldn't require much more work than actually learning and understanding all of truecrypts current codebase.
I have no problem with the source code being used as reference."
They could have said something like "No Such Action should be taken with regard to our code and you Can't Implement Anything based on it. You might Feel Better If you rewrite everything from scratch."
I swear when I read about this when it was first posted that they said there were only 3 judges. Now, the best I can find is this from the Reg:
It would be nice to see exactly how many judges and what the actual conditions were. Fooling 1 person is easy, fooling 10 would be much harder...
I hope they don't shut the project down... abruptly and without warning...
I never said they were rare. They do however almost always result in the person looking at their phone to figure out what happened.
From a different point of view... he possibly increased the likelihood of a distracted driving accident from callers looking at their phone muttering "wtf" to see why the call was dropped instead of keeping their eyes on the road.
My daughter has not learned to read and re-read the chapters in her text. Even if they haven't been specifically assigned as a reading assignment they cover the material in class and she is assigned the problems at the end of the chapter. When she gets stuck and asks me for help the first thing I ask is if she tried to look it up in her chapter. Which is typically followed by a no. If I can find the answer to her question in the chapter, I'll have her read it first. Or at least the section that contains the answer. If she's still stuck then I'll try and explain the material a little better. Of course, how I learned things 25 years ago is completely different from what she is being taught so that really just confuses her even more.
