The point of MOOCs is that since they're free, those who enroll in them can pick and choose from what's there that interests them. Plenty of people enroll in a MOOC because they want a refresher on something, or to learn about just one aspect of what's covered, or just to see what it looks like. It's not failure when those people don't go through everything in the course.
That doesn't seem to be considered a huge drawback in some Silicon Valley circles....
They may not be hardcore gamers or telecom experts, but when it comes to ruling on the law they are making determinations based on the exact wording on the law.
If only they would treat the Bill of Rights similarly!
When my Mom's old Dell running XP got too slow five or so years ago, I wiped it and installed Ubuntu, and she adapted quickly. She's still on Ubuntu now, but still has an old enough version that she has Gnome 2. I'm thinking for her 80th birthday in a few months I'll get her a new machine running Mint.
No one on their deathbed ever said "Gee, I wish I had spent more time at the office."
Yeah, but he's not dead yet. In fact, he thinks he'll go for a walk....
Wasn't a really low numbered one auctioned off for charity once upon a time?
It's too bad you think she's annoying, because in the meantime she grew up, and is really beautiful and seemingly really smart and interesting.
the FBI is a federal police force, not a spy agency that collects intelligence
The line is awfully blurry when you remember that it was the FBI and not the NSA that developed Magic Lantern.
Worse than that, during Christmas they claimed they delivered my package, but they really didn't. I had to get the seller to initiate an investigation, the conclusion of which was that it had actually been returned to the sender for no good reason and without apology. I get it that Christmas is busy, and if it had merely been late I'd have gotten over it. But they treated me really shabbily.
Incidentally, so did the seller, which took three days to respond to each of my inquiries, had no phone number, ignored my requests, etc. Pretty sad that from a company called 6dollarshirts you don't even get what you pay for!
Interestingly, around the turn of the century the Germans considered a series of plans to attack the U.S. directly. And as an alternative history buff you may be interested in a novelization of those plans by Robert Conroy called 1901, and also the H.G. Wells classic The War in the Air, which if written today would be considered steampunk alternative history but is cooler than that for having been written in 1907.

Basically, redefine the legal concept of incorporation to give the resulting entity a duty to care equally about shareholder value, stakeholder value and the continuation of the corporation.
Sounds sort of like a benefit corporation, although good luck getting that to be the default.
churches in Finland can't even get the permit as they don't satisfy the "yleishyödyllisyys" (general benefit for society) requirement
I no longer feel sorry for people who have to learn English.
They did respond. I quit protesting at that point figuring we made our thoughts clear and they would not continue untill things had been fixed.
What they said was that they wouldn't rescind Slashdot Classic until Beta was "ready", which is missing the point that we don't want Beta at all. It was a very disappointing response.
Others are protesting until the beta is completely dropped. I wish that they would post on topic then at the end of their post, put their beta protest.
Fuck beta. Try Usenet: comp.misc is the new Slashdot.
