As the only leftover wisdom from a (perceived) dying culture, who wouldn't want a backup?
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).
Survived on ~28kbps satellite link in the Sahara doing fieldwork. Not getting shot also helped.
What were you saying, again?
Norwegian here. Let me just say that officials will mostly comment without thinking, so the only practical magic they can apply here would be to find registered companies that sell BTC and have them report sells/buys to the govt. (Same transparency in stocks, I take it. But IANAE.)
Since they were the ones getting advertisers and distribution for the LXF mag (Future didn't do all this, check out Everard's interview on Linux Action Show) they shouldn't have a problem getting the wheels turning.
Raising this kind of support and publicity surely won't hurt either.
I'm just sore about not being able to afford the lifetime subscription..
Not everyone is online.
Not everyone reads online or on computers.
I personally spent some 2500-3000 $USD on books this year. Believe me, a lot of interesting books, albeit in niche areas, are only possible to hunt down and order online.
Makes you think about everything that's not mainstream enough to ever get the online baptism..
Back to topic; printed material is great, makes it easier to read and learn.
I subscribed to LJ, Linux Mag and Linux Format in print. I stopped renewing LJ when they went PDF only. Still miss the BASH tutorials. I stopped renewing Linux Mag when I left corp IT (it's very business oriented).
Which leaves LXF. The magazine and the podcasts are informative, insightful and entertaining. And they represent both Free software enthusiasts and Open Source pragmatists, debating technology and politics without just looking at the cost/economic side of things (software as products for consumers).
You hit the nail. While magic works in mysterious ways, science (working the same process) strives to declare its power to avoid mysteriousness.
It's inherited from the Enlightenment, probably.
That said, reading old folklore reveals a different picture. The supernatural wasn't questioned (that came with experimental science) instead it held the position our 'facts' do. Or, sociologically, they were facts.
This made the mysteries all the more mundane, taken for granted. This doesn't mean people was stupid, they were explaining phenomena in the way they could.
This is captured brilliantly by Dune, where high-tech takes a back seat even though it's there.
Exactly. But that's true of any transaction-token regardless of expression; money, stocks, bitcoins, camels. (The last has other uses too.) Money is a technology.
You're failing to see what bitcoin is changing money-technology _into_.
I have an N810, which doesn't see much use but I'm looking at replacing my remotes with it.
Anyway, how does the keyboard compare?
So what are you saying? You're Gollum?
Surely not Natalie Portman? She's pretty much close to 2D.
Did Q2 CTF:II on dual ISDN on a Quake server my ISP ran back in the 90's. Jedi Knight DF2 suffered badly under the same condition.
Bonus: no annoying phone calls while playing!
We need to clone Carmack who recognize gameplay over bling.
3D printed guns don't kill people, 3D printing puns kill people.
Apple knows Apple users either call a cab or a limo service. Trains are for working class, not creative or life-fulfilling better people. Read the EULA.
