I'm going to be downmodded to death, but isn't science about keeping an open mind? Here in my country school curricula are rigid, limited and biased government mandated crap. As long as the teacher doesn't lie/make things up, teaching the kids to question everything and see both sides of an issue will only do them good. The intelligent ones will eventually make their own decision about who's right or wrong, and the stupid ones will believe what they'll believe anyway...
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).
And this is why the amount of comments posted in slashdot is declining. The algorithm seems to choose for moderators simple-minded idiots who can't recognize a joke they can't look up in wikipedia. No wonder people are going to be afraid of losing their precious karma...
You maed a mistaek ther.
That's what they did by aligning it with night in the pacific ocean. There are a lot of people outside the american continent, you know?
Google sure has an impressive amount of cool people working there...

What happens when my attempt to ping Google gets bounced out to Europe as occasionally happens?
Sorry, but what's your ISP? I live in Europe and I don't remember packets sent elsewhere in Europe ever getting bounced to america or asia... Are things that bad over there?
(That's what you wanted, right? Right?)
I wonder what happened there - was it a change in artistic team? A side effect of the Enix merger?
Really? That's bad news for my tables in divs bug from 2003
I'm not sure conquest followed by citizenship and peace, with no genocide or enslavement (romans in Europe) , should be compared to, er, genocide and enslavement.
You'd be surprised...
Universities can provide their students with free microsoft software through the MSDN Academic Alliance ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MSDN_Academic_Alliance ). Mine provides a full subscription to all students.
Yeah, in other words, Notch just wants to be able to have, in the future, a "Minecraft 2"-type expansion package and charge for it...
I've been hosting in europe longer than that, but since the beginning of this year I've been hosting with Serverloft, a german company (they also have a datacenter in the U.S.). Their european website is http://www.serverloft.eu/ . Their current datacenter located in Strasbourg, France is http://www.datadock.eu/en/highlights.php . Their mainstream hosting sister company is http://www.server4you.net/ and their managed hosting sister company is http://www.plusserver.net/ .
One thing to be careful with, though - Their advertised "limited stock - 3 to 5 days delivery" isn't quite true right now, at least in europe. I've been waiting for my latest order for two weeks - They said something about delivery problems. Maybe it's the weather, I hear it's been pretty bad up north.
