They always told me when I was getting my math degree I could go on to do almost anything. Which wasn't helpful since I had no idea what I wanted to do (hence the math degree). I tried grad school but was fully uninterested. Many lifetimes later I am happily a developer.
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 always figured it was on purpose, the better to keep conversations about the same topic together. Seemed a bit ham-handed but I figured they had a reason.

All you would have to do would be to glance at one of the major stories and it would be obvious that the comments do not pertain to it directly and are old with thousands of responses.
The only test I care about is the one where I click the Firefox and Chrome shortcuts, in that order, and Chrome opens first every time. Until Firefox can remedy that, I just can't make myself use it anymore.
I'm with this guy. I have SLI and I have yet to find a single game that it actually improves. In fact, in most cases it cuts performance in half. As far as I can tell it's just a way to trick morons like me into buying twice as many video cards.
I actually watch a ton of stuff on tv land and nick@nite, and when they recently started showing infomercials instead of shows at 3 or 4 am I was fairly peeved. But this is far more annoying.
This kind of thing should never make it to the customer. As the customer, I don't care where you get channels from or what you pay, I only care about what I agreed to pay for what I agreed to buy. After the whole NFL network debacle (which is still ongoing), if they do this I'm going to have to finally get directv or that u-verse crap.
