... when we solve the halting problem. I'm not entirely joking. The main problem with progress bars is that, quite often, it is not possible to accurately estimate how much time is needed to complete a problem (i.e. for the program to halt).
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).
Any improvements to power management? It pains me that my laptop gets 4 hours battery life when in Windows 7 but only 2 hours when in Linux. In both cases it's just idle with nothing special running in the background. Or is this a problem with the distribution?
GRRR. "extends" was for inheritance, "implements" was for interfaces, so why wasn't "uses" chosen for traits, instead of "use"?
I find DLNA wonderfully useful. Anyone who comes into my living room can show the photos and videos from their phone on my TV. Same for laptops. Everyone can instantly access each other too, as well as my media server. It's great for parties.
What? English did not became an international language because of the US. Rather, it is a direct result of British Colonialism.
(1) The latest Ubuntu LTS
(2) Webmin and Virtualmin.
That's It! Nuff said.
I discovered your site through my roommate back in '97 a little after I joined university. It's been my default page, locked tab, checking-if-internet-is-working site ever since. I now frequent many other blogs, news sites, social networks, etc. But I always come back to Slashdot every day. I'm mostly a lurker but for some reason or the other, signed up early (probably because at that time one could sign up for everything without worry).
I hadn't realized it's been 14 years. Bon Voyage CmdrTaco, good luck in your new endeavors.
That was the most stupid slideshow ever. Any random "Top Ten" in http://cracked.com/ is better than this drivel. Lame!
Best Summary Ever. But the title was too "farky". Didn't go with the summary.
By turning off the sound and music, you ruined part of the experience. A lot of what people appreciated about the game WAS the story. The way it starts out as a simple puzzle game, but then as you play you realize that there actually is a story, especially with the hidden rooms that you find. If you just rush through a game without looking around or appreciating the full experience, you'll get a distilled, boring, output, as you did.
Ah those were the days. Us friends all subscribed to different magazines and then swapped issues and CDs so we could get fixes more than once a month.
I loved your Austin Powers reference! That's what you were intending, right?
Here's a hint: "non-pharma" = "recreational"
In my case, what I would definitely NOT let lapse is my utilities service. Gotta have water and electricity. Either that, or house payments / rent. If you have a home, you can live, and go elsewhere for everything else.
Yes it would. And we in Bangladesh have got just that. I've seen numerous jams solely because cars were unsure which to follow, the cops or the lights.
