Correction: EFF off.
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).

You are correct, they missed the word 'is'. Have a Slashdot pedantry point.
Yeah. I can't tell if it's raving about it being non-Free, or raving against browser plug-ins, or both.
I don't like being lied to by editors. I admit this isn't the most serious problem in the world, but it's still a problem.
Yep, awful Slashdot editing strikes again. Why bother mentioning HTML5 unless you're deliberately trying to mislead me? It's a damn plugin, not 'in the browser' at all.
On what grounds could one sue? I imagine it would be quite hard to prove real damages with a price-tag attached.
Also, we don't have class-action lawsuits in the UK.
Also, the new BBC News design looks truly awful on Firefox+NoScript on desktop. Not an improvement, BBC.
From the very beginning,
Makes sense. Why would they try to make another C++?
.NET is by no means slow though, as you seem to be implying.
Depends. Have they just finished it, or are they coming back to it a month later?
So what if you have one of these jobs and are going through a rough patch? Your wife just left you and took the kids, your mom died of cancer...
Why, you should lose your job, of course! That should sort out that depression.
Of course, now when the pilot has to take a leak there is one less cabin crew, which I'm sure you can construct a scenario in which that's not a good idea.
The solution is right there in the summary: have a flight-attendant lurk in the cockpit.
I'm baffled that this wasn't mandatory. As others have mentioned: what if he passed-out, or had a heart-attack? It's painfully obvious there should never be just one crew-member locked in the cockpit.
With Git, you have a full copy of the repo just by virtue of having "checked out" a copy.
Quick nitpick: that would be a clone, not a checkout.
For the non-git-users among us:
git clone: copy that repository to my local file-system. (All branches are copied across. This is normally over ssh or https.)
git checkout: give me the specified branch. (Doesn't require use of the network.)
git fetch: update the local store of the repository to reflect the current state of the repository on the server.
I take it then that you personally are undertaking serious tax-evasion, right? Otherwise you'd just be an armchair critic who doesn't put his money where his mouth is.
They don't engage in fractional-reserve banking.
Whether PayPal are legally a bank, depends on the country. iirc they are a bank in Australia.
They can randomly freeze your account and prevent you getting access to 600,000 Euros of your money, though, if you make the mistake of trusting them with large sums.
Or use a weapon that fires a burst, and load two rounds.
