Still a fan of most things BioWare (minus the star wars crap). I believe after I finish Dragon Age II it will be time to pull out the BG/ToB/BGII CDs. My wife will hate me for it, since I'll be playing for countless hours... But my netbook will probably handle them ok. So... I could play it in front of the TV and just smile and agree with whatever she says, just like normal.
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).
Oversized touchpad == Macbook Wheel???
(Yes this is a joke folks)
Yes, I probably would. If there were some good games out for the PSP I would fire it up more often. The problem is that right now, in terms of value, I'm much further ahead playing free (or very cheap) games on the phone. The games on the phone are probably much cheaper to make too! An indie developer could crank one out much faster than it would take to get a full fledged game out on to the PSP or the DS.
I'm actually in this group. I own a PSP, and have an old GBA I used to use for long trips. The GBA is still nice for when kids come over and I don't want them to break my PSP, but then again... I hardly play the darned thing these days. Every time I look through the store for new games for the PSP there's just nothing there that's interesting (this includes the PSN).
If I have a need for mobile gaming I just fire up my android phone... lots of games on there which are either free, or really cheap. And I already have my phone in my pocket. No need to carry around an extra device any more!
I actually read your post and all responses. I think you have a good point and would have modded it up if my mod points didn't expire.
The same thing we do every night, Pinky: Try to take over the world!
Communications companies are taking steps to actively avoid being turned into "bit-pushers", as they called it at my previous employer. They are resorting to slimy tactics such as putting intentional packet jitter on traffic in order to degrade service for applications like VOIP. Of course, if you want to avoid the jitter you can pay for that! Don't underestimate how much effort a TelCo will pursue in order to avoid having their revenues shrink.
Let's just say that I'm currently working on an application for my employer that targets mobile devices (Win CE/Mobile) and tablet pcs (XP/Vista) at the same time. Even using
Replying to myself... but I did put our code up for consumption on the website linked above.
We banned death progs... for just such a reason. You could have them if the admins tested and approved them.
I remember once as a junior immortal I was building an area, and set one of my mobs to load some weapons from a different area since I hadn't built any of my own yet. I managed to send the mud into a huge death spiral the next reboot as my area was loaded before the other area. That meant that I was trying to load objects which didn't exist yet... *kaboom*
I continued to be an immortal there for a long long time, and eventually graduated to be a coder. It's been a while, but I still fire up the code at times and walk through the areas. The imagination some of our builders had was amazing! New games pale in comparison.
I'm going to turn it on right now for some fun.
My wife refers to Nethack as "that stupid game". I managed to get her to try it once, but she died quite quickly and then never attempted it again.
I've never actually ascended in Nethack, but I still play all the time (I've stopped for a while... it was consuming a lot of time). Even still I keep trying...
Currently you can't actually delete the list, only disable it. If you delete the list, it will come back the next time you load firefox. I have actually tried this myself and it is very obnoxious.
I was looking on the noscript forums, and I did find this:
On the other hand, I guess I'll have to work overnight to release 22.214.171.124 immediately: it prompts users beforehand (something I announced 10 minutes after 126.96.36.199's release), and also fixes the bug which allows the filterset only to be disabled, rather than removed. That's a genuine bug, but is being nonetheless singled out as a malicious behavior by Wladimir...
While I don't know if I believe this or not, it's at least the way it should have been from the start.
Where is said option. I looked in NoScript and was unable to find it. Maybe I've just had too many tonight though...

This question also seems to have a lot of emotion behind it from the *nix community which confuses me. I can't for the life of me understand why you would want a directory with both text.txt and Test.txt in it. I like the fact that most OSs keep the fact that it is Test.txt, and don't store test.txt, but that is where it stops. Many of the conversations I see out there bring programming languages into the mix which I think is seperate. Also, I've seen misguided posts that say Linux can do "ls -a" and "ls -A" which has nothing to do with this as well.
Can we have an honest discussion about exactly what would break on Linux and why are worlds would stop functioning? I get the consistency argument, but can't that be implemented at the programming languaging or script processing level(determined by that community) and not at the OS level? If you dont' want bash to execute "LS" and only execute "ls" is that for bash to decide and not ext3? I'm also concerned about interoperability."
