Yikes. Thanks for the reminder that they also screwed up sourceforge recently.
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).
beta boycott is completely needless.
After a few more days of users replacing content with protests, there will be no site to switch to beta

And steamrolls ahead against their fans' wishes anyway.
Down with beta
If you keep driving your community away now, there won't be a site to look at in three years.
There's a lot of hate from Anonymous Coward for critics of beta.
I hope this isn't Dice astroturfing their own site.
Someone in the executive suite must really be in love with beta for it to have survived this long, and despite so much user protest.

That said, I want to ask Dice why they are so eager to kill off Slashdot.
Is there a secret buyer somewhere waiting to grab this domain, Dice ? Just tell us. There are those amongst us who can afford to pay for the domain. What we want is to have a Slashdot that we know, that we can use, that we can continue to share information with all others.
Please stop all your destructive plans for Slashdot, Dice."

I don't understand why you posted that.
Almost everyone who has seen a radial lead electrolytic capacitor inside their computer or other consumer kit and recognized it as a capacitor would know or correctly infer the part of the capacitor that TheGratefulNet is referring to.
Why not take this opportunity to simplify your life by owning less stuff? It would save you from having to pack, ship, track, and store everything.
There are far more opportunities available if you're mobile enough to fit your life into a couple of suitcases and leave the bulky/sentimental stuff with relatives. More importantly, your spending will naturally shift from things to people and experiences that can't get damaged or lost in transit.
