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).
If you want to try something new, justy try to make a new site, advertise it and see the results. If there is no adoption, that probably means IT JUST SUCKS !
The old slashdot is so close to perfection that it is understandable that it is difficult to improve on PERFECTION. And it is too easy to break it.
DEAL WITH IT.

Also, I am browsing the net since at least 12 years and i have NEVER found child porn by accident or whatsoever. I am thinking that child porn can be found only in the "dark internet".
So that makes one wonder what Google's real motives are.
But let's go higher this time - i hereby propose 10.000.000.000 $ (ten US billions of US dollars).
And while doing that, why not stop this Secureboot crap from happening while we still can ?
Why a company with known history like that is allowed to continue its sick practices is beyond me.
802.11ac isn't out yet but I have little hope of it really helping. I live in an apartment building I can already see 50+ routers on 2.4 & 10+ ON 5GH.
I just don't see that much of a benefit unless the congestion avoidance is really better than 102.11n.
You are probably right. I think this invention will be of more help: http://hardware.slashdot.org/story/12/10/23/1946248/increasing-wireless-network-speed-by-1000-by-replacing-packets-with-algebra It works basically "repair data" in RAR archives for WiFi networks, so distorted/damaged packets can be recovered even if their checksums don't match.
Perhaps somebody should try again, doing it properly this time ?
Most of us is pretty sure that it is only a suspension, not complete stop. Polish government has a long history of lying and manipulating us, so they are waiting for the protests to chill out and will push ACTA at other time.
We are now in the process of collecting signatures for a referendum, so we can kill ACTA once and for all. If that will not be enough, it may even be neccessary to remove the government.

It is important to realize that these guys will never ever stop unless we stop them first.
So we should actively find & destroy all politicans, corporations and organizations which create laws like these. When they get their asses kicked, they won't have such stupid ideas anymore.
The security we (Linux users) always wanted was supposed to be on software level, not on hardware level.
Doing anything like this on hardware level is definately anti-competitive.
