Btw, the human is the original 'exploiter' in George Orwell's Animal Farm. A reference that apparently few people got, or at least they don't share my sense of humor. I'm also of the opinion at Google has reached 'Microsoft'ian levels yet, but I'm already of the opinion that Google is already in that route. Just a matter of time.
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).
That if Microsoft was a human and google a pig we wouldn't see much difference between the two
Kind of Funny putting all those artists talking about their creative work and then an executive calling their work a commodity, indistinguishable from one another from the consumers point of view.
The link between Science and Religion is more close than the modern worldview is willing to admit. For example, From pg 40 of Against Method:
What Newton means is that gravitation disturbs the planets in a way that is likely to blow the planetary system apart. Babylonian data as used by Ptolemy show that the planetary system has remained stable for a long time. Newton Concluded that it was being periodically 'reformed' by divine interventions: God acts as a stabilizing for in the planetary system.
Also the abstraction of Force arose from the idea that Angels ( Invisible action ) that gave birth to an incipient theoretical framework of physics that boomed in the Renascence (Galileo with the frame of reference gave a revolutionary perspective also)
Out of curiosity, what behavior from KDE 3 is not possible in KDE 4?
You can revert to a "classic" desktop with icons, a classic Start Menu, and you can configure the task bar to work just like KDE 3. As far as I know, the only feature I recall from KDE 3 that I haven't really seen in 4 is the optional feature of Mac-like application menus.
For starters you can't Ctrl-Esc for the 'skull of death'

My school sends the login/password as clear text, so in my experience OP has a point. Also gmail has google docs and view as HTML to quickly check to see the document contents.
One can find problems without having to resort to temportal issues with the ISP. Battlenet has issues working properly with NAT, which is 99% of the users of internet of peru (non-bussiness at least). If you have a single PC behind a NAT playing there is not much problem, you can play no problem but to host you have to open one port. But For example two brothers want to play and one of them host, no can do, at least not without 3rd party Software (can't recall the name battlelan or something like that). So that would be an issue for instance @ Lan Cafes at least here in Peru.
well http://www.hardwarebook.info/ is a wiki also and already has lots of information...
Don't hog all my memory. Konqueror 4.x broke Slashdot and digg so I had to stop using it and use firefox instad. But now Slashdot works properly again. I can use dig but I get a regexp exhaust error if I try to login in digg. I still have to use firefox for gmail and facebook though.
and only when written in katakana (used mainly for foreign words,). In Hiragana you just write de vowel twice!
It still should be public domain by now! Building upon other peoples characters gave us much of the Legends of King Arthur
