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).
Allen explained that without a "moral rebirth" in the country, more people may feel the need to carry a weapon.
"I believe what's happening to our country is that there's a moral erosion of the soul of America," she said.
It's a sad sign of the times when Senators have forgotten that one of the founding pillars of the United States is separation of church and state."
Itâ(TM)s a perpetual lament: The purity of the English language is under assault. These days we are told that our ever-texting teenagers canâ(TM)t express themselves in grammatical sentences. The media delight in publicizing ostensibly incorrect usage. A few weeks ago, pundits and columnists lauded a Wikipedia editor in San Jose, Calif., who had rooted out and changed no fewer than 47,000 instances where contributors to the online encyclopedia had written âoecomprised ofâ rather than âoecomposed of.â
Scholarly linguists, Instead of having some rule book of what is âoecorrectâ usage, instead examine the evidence of how native and fluent nonnative speakers do in fact use the language. Whatever is in general use in a language (not any use, but general use) is for that reason grammatically correct."

Finally a reason to kick-start manned space exploration! Think of what can be learned! If there is life on these moons, then that means that it will also die. Dead plants means ocean floor sediment. That means there could be oil there! We now have a reason!
So use solar sails attached to transport ships carrying some other materials to mars. Once the ships enter orbit, detach the solar sails and manuver the sail material (probably mylar) to Mars's L1. Use the solar wind to keep them in place, and balance that with the gravity of mars and use that to refract the solar radiation hitting Mars until it equals that of earth. That would increase insolation and generally supply more solar radiation to the surface of mars. Once the extra heat is added, it will sublimate the CO2 in the soil/poles and increase the greenhouse effect and start warming the planet. That would also increase atmospheric pressure, making habitation easier to achieve. Granted, the new air won't be breathable, but who cares! The planet will be warmer and the atmosphere thicker. If, at some later date, we wanted to make the air breathable, then some serious CO2 scrubbing would be required, but still. That could be a long term goal provided by seeding the planet with.. um... plants! Let the trees do the long term work.
So get get 2 Teslas and have them tow each other around. Never need a charging station again!
I don't think it would matter much. Japanese already have a social reaction to this which would fill the gap. Tattoos are shunned in public places. This would probably fall along the same lines.
Dying your hair is also more socially acceptable now, but not in a business setting.
Besides, a Japanese driver's license doesn't even have a place for hair or eye color. ( I am a permanent resident of Japan and have a Japanese license)
The sun is not a point source. This is the same reason you get 2 shadows during a solar eclipse. The umbra and penumbra. The probe is 6km above the surface and it's not big enough to completely block the sun at that range, hence the fuzzy shadow.
The accuracy of these portraits is still an area of hot debate — most of them look rather generic. The NY Times staff tested it with a couple of their employees, circulating the DNA-inspired portraits and seeing if people could guess who it was supposed to be. None of the ~50 employees were able to identify reporter John Markoff, and only about 10 were able to identify video journalist Catherine Spangler. But even though the accuracy for a person's entire face is low, techniques for specific attributes, like eye color, have improved greatly. Of course, the whole situation raises a slew of civil liberties questions: "What traits are off limits? Should the authorities be able to test whether a suspect has a medical condition or is prone to violence should such testing be possible?"

So when should we expect to see a post on dice jobs for new slashdot server admins. Of all the sites to go down for something like this, Slashdot is the last one I expected.
Send me an email and I'll send you a resume and set up your back end properly. Sheesh
I was going to post nearly the same thing. The other side of Virtualmin is once you have your packages and configs set up the way you want, simply click the backup server button and get a
I still have a copy of windows 2000 RC2 for alpha from MSDN. Got the MIPS and PPC versions too. Keep it around just in case I ever pick up another DEC board.
It always seemed wrong that out of order execution was more efficient than in order. I'll have to read up on it more. You'd think that the results coming in out of order would mess things up.
