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).
...what else? With a new Cantina scene including Lady Gaga appearing as an alien (or vice versa).
How does he know if "gamers" are losing patience? Did he do any survey, or is he extrapolating from own opinion?
...my University has its own Linux distro. While I am not very familiar with Linux, at least half of the workstations are running that. And actually, as I hear from my fellow researchers, the support for Linux workstations is better than for the windows ones. I had to do some work on a Linux server (updating the webpages of the department) and support excellent. I mean, I was asking Root some basic questions by email, and got detailed answer in 30 mins.
OTOH, there are some Linux specific problems that I dont have in Win7, so I don't judge which OS is better. They are just different OSes for different people. What I want to say is that Linux support in the campus is great.
How about a kindle sleeve disguising it as a (non e) book?:)
I am working as researcher/post-grad student, and computer is the number one research tool. Like is hammer for a blacksmith. No surprises there.
When in the same place I work should "forbid" the major research tool in the classrooms, this is an obvious sight that the teaching system I-speak-and-you-listen-and-take-notes is broken. Or at least obsolete.
For most of the time I have been good student, and I am writing a doctoral dissertation now. One would expect I like lectures. Still, most of them are boring as hell. I didn't have smart phone/netbook when I was in high school (and I envy the nowadays students so much for having them), and guess what - when I got bored, I always find a way to distract myself. And the others. Chatting with a schoolmate during class is less distracting that launching a paper airplane, IMHO.
What? No obligatory jokes about 2012, Mayan calendars, end of the world and stuff? Come on Slashdot, you can do better!
Exactly. When I "cup my palm" and start moving it on the table, my nails make the sound of... well, the sound of scratching wood with nails. Uffffff....
Hello US, welcome to Bulgaria. Prepaid phones are registered, criminals still avoid being caught. http://sofiaecho.com/2010/04/29/894210_bulgarian-criminals-beating-the-system-of-pre-paid-sim-card-registration
I know two programming environments, designed specially for children. One is Stagecast Creator http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stagecast_Creator, which is created in Apple, and was known as Cocoa before Apple reused the name for the Cocoa API. The other is Alice http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alice_(software), created in Carnegie Mellon, by a group led by the late Randy Pausch (you might have seen "The last lecture" by Randy Pausch).
Stagecast creator is a programming tutorial, disguised as a 2D game designer, and Alice is a programming tutorial disguised as 3D scene creator. I, being a keen NES gamer, tend to like Stagecast better.

However, I heavily doubt you can calculate health standards like that. Or, OSHA would not allow you in a quiet library (35db) for more than 2853.88128 years <grin>.
This is where I come. Since I browse from Finland, most of the links I clicked were leading to "This video is not available in your country" message, and I could not get the joke. The RIProll turned into RIAAroll.
I think this becomes a cultural issue. Do I have the right to be properly rickrolled, what do you think?"
who doesn't see anything good having come from mammals.
all bets are off too. A lighting storm is all it takes to send cmdrtaco off to buy power generator.
> I'd like to see you recover something that has been overwritten once.
You can't do it at home, but professional data recovery service can. Usually you can guess the previous data by precisely measuring the magnetic levels. The old values will influence the resulting intensity. Roughly (I'm not expert!) works like this:
was -- now -- result
0 -- 1 -- 0.9
1 -- 0 -- 0.1
1 -- 1 -- 1.1
0 -- 0 -- 0
That is why you should have MULTIPLE overwrites with RANDOM data.
