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).
Having books on a shelf in your own home, is like taking any laptop and making it dual boot yourself. Nothing stops you from doing that.
I believe the issue here is if you sold a book that was a bastard marriage of Tolkiens Lord of the Rings and Kings Dark Tower all in one.
I think you're losing sight of the bigger picture. Just because it isn't currency doesn't mean it can't be stolen.
ie. if I stole your car, because it's not currency, I can't go to jail?
I just recenetly tried out Telegram and it looks very promising. It needs video compression so sending videos doesn't upload 2GB of data. I love being able to pick up my messages on every device, that is awesome.
If it gets popular, I don't see how its going to stay free though, we'll see.
You just suck. In general.
Nothing you have said yes has any correlation to a short coming of OSS.
You also contradict yourself. "Open source-ness is simply not a quality factor"
Congrats, you entirely miss the point of this hobby project. Care to embarrass yourself further?
I fail to see what it is about being Open Source has to do with anything. I think you just want to piss on open source, which is fine, but in this context it means nothing.
This is a free port of a game originally made in 1999. It was built as a clone of that game. Do you expect just because time has passed that the game should be reimagined?
The devs do this in their free time as a hobby. Being open source or not has no bearing on the points you are trying to make. Just because the game is old doesn't mean a dev shouldn't be able to release an update.
As for accepting inferior products, go and check out Greenlight and how well some retro indie games are doing
You have a warped taste for what is adequate. Perhaps you should go play some more CoD:Ghosts.
What? "This is not a router" --- "it has a built-in router"
Doesn't matter how simple it is. Once the tool is created its simple for the end-user to break into their phone. Nothing stopping a malicious group creating a similar tool to pwn your phone instead.
DHT is very reliable. Once a node has been connected a while and established links with many other nodes, traffic is quick and you have the redundancy of many 100s of connections.
Encrypting the data prior to transport and using DHT would be no worse off from TOR.
It is worth mentioning that the Youtube Center browser extension can disable DASH and make many other improvements to Youtube's interface. Firefox Chrome
I wouldn't firmly say SSDs aren't less reliable per se, they just have a limited but measurable lifespan. Being measurable is very important when purchasing with reliability in mind, as drive death can be predicted.
When SSDs were in their infancy they were plagued by problems, but we are passed those times. Nothing is in concreate however, I am on the fence on this subject as SSDs haven't been around long enough to make any solid judgements, but I'm leaning towards the fact that SSDs will out perform spinning disks in every area eventually, even reliability.
