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 tried a few different apps (Feedly, Vienna, RSS Feed Reader, Slick RSS) to replace Google Reader but didn't like any of them.
A couple of weeks ago I switched to The Old Reader [ http://theoldreader.com/ ] and I've been perfectly happy with it since.
At least it saved it getting stuck on the kerb/curb later.
Personally I'd like to have _all_ activity (audio, network, CPU, everything) stopped on every tab except the active one. If I want to be annoyed I can pop the tab into it's own window (or if someone cares to implement it - you could have per-tab controls).
Then go to the Parental Controls Preferences and disable the iTunes Store.
Wasn't too hard, was it?
But then the volume of a pizza of thickness 'a' and radius 'z' wouldn't be 'pi z z a' it would be 'tau z z a / 2'.
And FWIW compiling with:
g++-fsf-4.4 smallpt.cpp -o smallpt -O3 -fopenmp -ffast-math -m64 -march=native -ftree-parallelize-loops=8 -funroll-all-loops
gives a runtime for smallpt 100 of 2m31s for my MacBook ("Early 2008" model).
One of the comments on the smallpt page recommends adding the following line:
if (depth > 100) return obj.e;
after line 55 in the code to prevent a stack overflow.
It seems to do the trick for me.
I am pretty sure I heard such a speech 10 years ago, before Java came out.
The first release of Java was in 1995.
And it's nice they way they expect you to carry your canoe across one of the Hawaiian Islands in the middle of your journey.
That was so not what I was hoping for when I followed a link labelled "Jamie Oliver's forehead hitting the nearest wall, over and over again".

... Microsoft's Poland
Wait. Microsoft have invaded Poland? I've got a bad feeling about this.
I know of no such "rule as used by Unix".
