Yep. Very much so.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
Every once in a while Illiad sticks in a new story line, but it's getting more and more rare. I was just struck by the reference to goatce.cx.
The punchline for this week's story line arc at Userfriendly is significant to any slashdotter with less than a seven digit UID.
The problem is that easy to get at fossil fuels are gone. They've already been gotten, and they're not coming back easily.
Yes , that is the correct Syntax.
Will this post without Slashdot requiring me to be human? What is up with slashdot randomly logging me out while I'm typing a post?
I still do not know what is wrong with zone defense automated systems. Sometimes, you WANT segregation as a tactical diplomacy method, and we're to the point of "If it moves and is in the zone, kill it" technology far in excess of the low tech minefields of yesteryear.
Slashdot used to be a safe site to visit, it never made noise when you didn't want it to, making it the go-to site for quiet, in-office news aggregation.
Not anymore. I just had to mute my laptop due to a slashdot auto-playing video advert.

Subsidiarity is written into Canon Law. The higher you go, the less power you HAVE. The lay person has more power over the domain of his house (or even her house) than the parish priest has over his parish, the parish priest has more power over his congregation than the Bishop has over all the priests combined, Archbishops have even less power over their subject Bishops, and are practically autonomous from the Vatican itself. The Least Competent Authority is a real concept in the Roman Catholic Church- and holds sway.
Most of the heretics are hypocrites. Especially entertaining are the ones who claim "Nobody will be harmed by innovation x" who the proceed to harm people with innovation x.
QBASIC is a later version as well, and is not equal to ANSI standard basic.
Basic != Visual Basic
The correct way, in classic basic, to designate type was with a suffix- such as "A$" for a string variable named a and "I%" for a loop variable of type integer. DIM was short for "dimension" and was only used for arrays.
Now get off my interpreter, you young whippersnapper.
Goto. Just don't.
I am informed by the people I interview with that algorithms are called patterns now, just like the Common Gateway Interface became REpresentful State Transfer. The only way to stay employed past 40 is to keep up on the jargon.
See, that's what drives me crazy about alternate operating systems. Why would you paste to mark a block?
