I didn't want a link the first place. It should have been plain text.
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).
Google has already tried that with http://search./
I'm not sure about futurama, but yes matrix is related, but only a bit. First, the setup is far more dense, brains only, second, humans know that they dont have the real thing, and they are also generally in control of things around. Visiting "The real thing" is however possible only for a few (the rich), as earth would be overpopulated otherwise. Its former oceans and most of the landmass are already filled up with the VR machine, so only a small fraction remains for to have fun in.
One day there will be trillions of humans on this planet, brains only, connected to a huge computer, and all dreaming of a body of their own.
Next one: I can't switch pages anymore on slashdot.org url.
If it makes them discontinue beta, its a good change.
better than beta, worse than it was. HOWEVER, I'm patient and hope they sort out the bugs. I'm not "You are posting: as NotInHere Anonymously". I'm posting as NotInHere.
The main point where multiresistencies are created is animals. When we give them antibiotics in order to enable "storing" them even denser, we enlarge the contact between patogen and antibiotics by a huge factor.
Our greed for cheap meat has brought us to the point where we destroy our own hardly-won victories against illnesses. And, the current system unfortunately even rewards you if you apply your antibiotics for animals -- by giving you money.
sorry to bring up an offtopic rant, but again classic slashdot is in offline mode, and I actually have to use slashdot beta to post this.
FUCK BETA. IF YOUR USERS DONT LIKE YOUR DESCISIONS, THEN OVERTHINK THEM. EVEN WINDOWS 10 HAS A STARTMENU AGAIN. DICE YOU CAN DECIDE WHETHER YOU ARE WORSE THAN MS OR BETTER.
dude A registered sex.com
dude B fucked girl @ registry company of dude A and used further tricks to get sex.com
dude B made millions with the domain name
dudes C and D founded google, resulting in loss of "random visitors"
dude A got sex.com back from B through court descision, demanded $64 million
dude B didn't pay, fled to mexico, was turned over, spent time in prison, still didnt pay until today
Its the other way round:
Linux would certainly rise the entry level for malware writers, which would make malware writing a less promising market.
