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).
We also used to play at shooting each other a lot.
I still hate Nintendo from the stranglehold on developers they had in the 80s... they demanded exclusivity, i.e. if you developed for the NES, you could not release games at all for competing systems such as the Sega Master System. This was pretty annoying as the SMS was technologically superior to Nintendo's system.
Like the way they didn't even have a power button?
I spent some time playing with my friends original b/w iPod a few years back and actually, I couldn't figure out how to do anything. Then I spent three minutes trying to find the damn power button. Wow, that was an amazing design.
I miss the CowboyNeal option.
Thank goodness, I couldn't believe nobody had mentioned Beowulf clusters yet. Is this slashdot, or NOT?
IE heaven would be: they cancel the Trident rendering engine and announce they're using WebKit.
Come on MS, you can do it!
Is there anyone who seriously is surprised by this? If so, I guess you haven't been paying attention to MS's behavior and plans for the past 15 years at least.
The Skepticism course would take care of this, too.
It says a lot about the wastefulness of institutions when it comes to buying hardware. I bet you the Defense Department could find lots of savings by sourcing their parts from Nintendo, too!
Imagine you our your child caught a snake and you want to identify it.
You search in google for the three words king snake pictures brings up four pictures. The pictures are presented as harmless king snakes except the third which is a coral snake, a venomous neurotoxic snake that can kill you if you are bitten and not treated.
You can tell a coral snake by the phrase "Red touches black, venom lack red touches yellow you're a dead fellow"
Here is a link from firefox but I've confirmed that the same search in IE shows the same four pictures. It is a stretch but I could imagine someone making this mistake and maybe trying to file a lawsuit, and who knows they might win on the argument that such misinformation should have been better screened out.
PS: If you click on the third picture you find that the file is named coral.jpg"
