Journal: Slashdots search sucks?? 6

Journal by Snaller

I was trying to find a recent story, tried several different searches and get a load of crap.
Then i google the query and site:slashdot and the correct hit is the second one (first one is in the thread)

Hm.. not good slashdot.

Journal: Freedom of speech moderated Troll

Journal by Snaller

On Slashdot at least.

Wonder if its the americans this is an american site after all. they seem to like to censor things, while i come from a country where we can say "fuck" on primetime. But then words don't frighten us as much as it seems to do some people.

Journal: Revolt of the kids

Journal by Snaller

So, all the little kids were out in force, modding me troll all over because i point out a few facts - I wonder if its because they love their little warez heaven? And rude as well.

How weird that Slashdot indirectly supports criminal behavior by preventing the opposing view to be heard. Tut tut.

Journal: Google Groups 2 - sucks 2

Journal by Snaller

Well, it finally happened: They do evil. Boy do the new layout suck, for me its 50% less screen space. Their lame (as in bad) page design causes it to close be unreadable and some functionality is way down.

I rue the day when Google Groups 1 is gone - pity i didn't buy stocks, i could have sold them again!

Journal: Firefly in the Navy

Journal by Snaller

MWR - stands for Morale, Welfare and Recreation. Its the people in the American Navy who try to live up to their name by entertaining the troops. They've just struck a deal with enterprising Firefly fans who've donated 250 DVD sets of the series. So through the Navy's "Afloat" library program, US sailors around the world will be able to enjoy Firefly during their downtime (meanwhile Joss Whedon is working on the motion picture).

Journal: Divx going a bit too far?

Journal by Snaller

VirtualDub is a great and free video capture and editing open source utility. However the author announces that he won't support DivX 5.1 in any way, shape or form in VirtualDub. It's not that he is boycotting it, its just that after he installed the codecs and tried to play something he was greeted with the message: "Debugger detected - please close down and restart" - A userspace driver (even the free version) with a protection wrapper. He can't debug Virtualdub AT ALL when the codec is installed because it triggers on load, in fact you can't debug any programs if you hover over an avi in the open dialog, explorer load the codecs to dislay information and the codecs terminates your application.

He does not this is a good choice on the part of Divx Networks, I agree!

Journal: Get it right you damn incompetents! 7

Journal by Snaller

Damn, is a lot of the web written by incompetents. And i'm not talking about the content, but the composition of HTML. Even if you are just a bit myopic it can be though reading all the small letters that usually ensues from misuse of Stylesheets (in MSIE you can't change the font size if someone twit has specified an absolute font size) - but now the progressive Brits have made it a crime if you don't design your pages properly - God save the Queen!

Put not your trust in money, but put your money in trust.
