Seriously, is this what it takes these days? Fly an R/C plane around and post a video of it on the Internet, get on Slashdot's front page? Thanks for the yuletide, Slashdot.
What the heck is the point of this? Sometimes I hate artists. Here's an idea, just give someone a USB drive when you want to share files with them. Or mail it. Or I guess call it art and attach USB drives to walls. Move over Van Gogh, there's a new master in town!
Unfortunately, I still find myself with a 2 Mbps download speed tops. This technology needs to be actually utilized! It's killing me to read this stuff and then never see it in action.
After the illogical, unsupported and self-contradicting post you just made, you have as much right to talk about "sane" as King Herod does to talk about "child care"
This is a great phrase. It made my day. Thank you.
Ha ha ha! That's perfect. Maybe they'll give Kim Komando an editor position.
Yeah, but I'm drunk.
The nice thing about magazines like Byte is that they had editors. The Internet's nice, but without editors who cut out the crap and point us at the good parts, it's not that great. Slashdot is pretty close, but it all relies on good editing.
I agree. Training skills to the point that they become second nature is how to get REALLY good at the skills. I read a really good article on Larry Fitzgerald's ability to catch footballs, based on extensive training.
You're probably right. I think it's an unfounded "lean and mean" mentality that's keeping me from pulling the trigger on downloading the extra libraries. I mean, I've got broadband and a couple of monstrous hard drives, so it's not like I'd really notice the extra libraries.
Those libraries are what's keeping me away from Amarok. There are a TON of libraries that need to be installed in order to get Amarok going. I'd rather not install all the libraries for the sake of getting a music player working.
Oh, why did you have to remind me of that? That was the most infuriating thing.
That's classic! I was thinking the same thing.
