Comment: Keeping my killfile fed (Score 0, Troll) 1168

Two kinds of /. articles keep my killfile topped up: those about global warming (deniers), and those with "men's rights advocates" who engage in victim-blaming. Neither sort of person's comments are worth reading.

Related: it's dumb that we're limited to 200 friend/foe relationships. I ran into that limit earlier this week and had to spend an hour trimming out users who don't post any longer.

Pretty neat if you can afford it plus the cost of modding your console for RGB-out, which by itself is at least $100 for just the parts, and there are a limited number of those - the ones I've seen were stripped from old PlayChoice 10 cabinets. For us common trolls, a good emulator + a warezed ROM collection does the job.


Climate Damage 'Irreversible' According Leaked Climate Report 482

New submitter SomeoneFromBelgium (3420851) writes According to Bloomberg a leaked climate report from the IPPC speaks of "Irreversible Damage." The warnings in the report are, as such, not new but the tone of voice is more urgent and more direct than ever. It states among other things that global warming already is affecting "all continents and across the oceans," and that "risks from mitigation can be substantial, but they do not involve the same possibility of severe, widespread, and irreversible impacts as risks from climate change, increasing the benefits from near-term mitigation action."

We will have solar energy as soon as the utility companies solve one technical problem -- how to run a sunbeam through a meter.
