Quite interesting that Windows Vista and 7 are going the way of XP so soon.
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).
I'll bet you're one of the guys that likes to "correct" us all when we refer to experiencing centrifugal force while riding a roller coaster.
Quick, the cyborgs are hot on my tail -- when am I? Did I make it back to 2023? Or is it 2003? Let's see... Bennet Haselton is criticizing internet filtering... Dammit, that doesn't narrow the range in the slightest!
Indeed, and to avoid this illegality, women should be required by law to emit a Peace-Cry as they walk, lest any man be accidentally caught in their wake.
The other bizarre thing is that a distinction between nude and not nude exists in the first place. Why does the law care whether genitalia are showing, unless that is specifically written into the statute?
What surprises me is that it is presumably illegal to stick your head underneath a woman's skirt without her permission, and yet the same does not apply if you're using a camera. If there's no right to privacy, is there at least a right to personal space?
Precision without accuracy is meaningless, hence the "significant digits" we were all taught in science class. Mentioning accuracy when bragging about precision would be redundant. Why split hairs?
Page is unreadable due to obstrusive ads, including sound ads. -1 would not click again.
Without RTFA, was there any attempt to remind survey participants that astrology is the one with animal symbols, and astronomy is the one with black holes? If not, this isn't measuring acceptance of astrology, so much as measuring name recognition.
I seem to recall the exact same thing happening to Digg. Does that mean I'll see you on reddit in a few months?
Meh. I've taken a long enough break from slashdot that an entire decimal place of userids has come and gone without my noticing. Another, more eternal break won't be so bad. If they want to destroy comments, and hence destroy the site, I'll be happy to vacate.
What the hell? I don't know what that social media B2B page you linked to is, but how can anyone read something with font so small and a giant, conspicuous, two-second-scrolling hype banner?
Meh, slashdot comments aren't bad, but they're not great either. Specialized subcommunities on reddit -- the ones with strict moderators -- do fairly well.
I didn't expect to be enlightened by reading anything in the comments, but you proved me wrong. This is a point I always knew but didn't consciously appreciate until you said it. I don't come to slashdot for the crappily written summaries, I come for the sometimes-accurate comments that enhance the discussion.
I read the summaries. I come here to argue about how bad the summaries are.
Bring it on!
