Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
Don't go on a diet (Hacker's Diet or otherwise), but do make a permanent change to your lifestyle.
The Hacker's Diet is a permanent change in lifestyle. People don't always use the word "diet" to mean a temporary change. There are many diets that are permanent changes in lifestyle, and the word "diet" also has a technical definition in which it means what an organism eats - in that sense, everyone has a diet.
For those of us who do not always use the word "diet" to mean a temporary change, it is annoying to try to talk about a permanent change in diet and be corrected and contradicted by those who use the word diet to mean only a temporary change.
lest anybody think otherwise, Harrison Ford is quite an experienced airplane and helicopter pilot, with thousands of hours
My sister worked at a helicopter company where Ford trained or certified or something like that. Unfortunately that didn't result in me getting to meet him, though she did.
in this case, how could anyone argue the short film doesn't violate the rights of the franchise creator
Because I don't believe that content creators should have rights that violate anybody else's rights to do whatever they want with the content.
The ghost town state actually makes it easier to follow a few things and keep up. My Facebook feed is long and Facebook's most-recent sorting likes to pick random dates out of the comments of the postings to "refresh" it. With what I follow on G+, a quick browse will catch me up on all of what I am following. It is a feature to me.
Business can't plan or talk to customers or have any strategy whatsoever without at least some estimate...that's just the real world. If devs don't give estimates, managers have to make estimates. If managers don't make estimates, business makes estimates. You want devs to do the estimating.
I just don't want the boss to be disrespectful to me when the estimate is not accurate. Get us some estimation training or something. Don't give me a lecture. I'm too old for lectures.
I mean what’s the use of us sitting up all night saying there may -
Or may not be
[Softly] or may not be [louder] a god, if this machine comes along the next morning and gives you ‘is telephone number?
We demand rigidly defined areas of doubt and uncertainty!
Reddit shouldn't be doing this because it tends to violate an innate human right and because it will destroy Reddit
That's Reddit's choice to make, though, right? Just use some other forum.
It also comes in the wake of last year's Fappening
Can we get a definition of that for old farts with a UNIX beard like me? I know there was a massive hack and sale of celebrity nude photos for Bitcoin or something. Is that what this refers to? What's a Fappening?
Yeah, I'm gonna Google it, but the editors could add a parenthetical explanation, or a link to Wikipedia, or something. I remember when Slashdot used to use built in links to everything2 - I wish they had transitioned over to Wikipedia so the clueless like me could be more easily informed.
We love this one, too, although it's got some pro-communist roots we don't personally agree with.
