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).
I would be worrying about my precious bodily fluids, not the internet.
He's been doing that quite enough. The whole time he's been in power, or at least the last 30 years or so, he has been obsessed with people being doped up, given alcohol, or otherwise polluted. A few days ago, he told the public to avoid any milk or Nescafe from the areas in rebellion because they had been spiked with hallucinogens.
"It's a persistent myth that only the beating of tom-toms restores the sun after an eclipse. But is that really true?"
Odd: that's pretty much the intro line to well over a third of all programming on History Channel in the U.S. now. (Another third is historic battles recreated as computer animations with some guy talking about equipment like it was a football game; the rest is people selling crap someone had in their basement, which is about as close to actual history as they get now.) Watch for a revealing look (except not) at the life of Unix admins next season: The Admin's Book of Secrets.
So is this closed-source then? If so, then presumably it won't make it into Chromium.
I think Foxit is proprietary, but it's really, really fast; display speed between Foxit PDF Reader and Adobe Reader isn't even a contest. Last I checked it leaves Ghostscript in the dust too. I haven't used anything but Foxit for Windows PDF reading for a while now. Now, Poppler (which uses Cairo) is a different story: those libraries are pretty fast. Chromium might be able to do something interesting with a Poppler-based reader instead of Foxit.

Linux conventions dictate that whole word options be preceded with a double hyphen
Isn't that a GNU convention?
FSF should rename it "GIOL Is Often Linux" so we don't need the slash between the parts anymore. (OK, that sounds trollish, but it's barely dawn on a weekend, so it's as good as I get right now.)
"They seem to ruin everything they touch."
They should stick to touching themselves.
They already did that: after changing from QuantumLink then making several years of "improvements" to AOL they ran out of gold they could turn into lead, and had to hop aboard the dot-com strategy of throwing up blindingly huge amounts of cash to get anyone to consider associating with them.
Agreed: It's a lousy story.
Ya just couldn't resist it, couldja?
He was itching to say it.
I wonder how long people here were scratching their head for a response before one said "I guess I'll bite."
So is the prohibition on divorce, pre-martial sex and birth control but I've known my share of Catholics that have done all of the above.
Holy shit! You mean, that wasn't a "to do" list?
Not in that order.
Ceramic parabolas? I prefer wired mesh, that way I can put more on my head.
Maybe it's not the kind of "whoosh" you think it is. Maybe he's just likes that sort of nasty.
These are not hi-res pics, they're from your iPhone. What's wrong with putting everything on ONE page? Geez.
Because, even with the overhead of the HTML, it isn't worth the server and bandwidth hit to send 22 pictures to people who might not care after the first 2 or 3, especially if the site is getting Slashdotted.
