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 was not suggesting an enforcement, but encouraging all to withhold posting comments of value and for the moderators to mod-up posts of protests.
This. This is how web development is (or should be) phased. It's even how Google does it. Dice's approach with the beta site is taking (however poorly) influences from other sites and not the tried-and-tested features that makes
If they want to make changes to
I have a better idea. Let no one comment or let all moderator points go to those who protest the beta site.
I enjoy Beethoven and Chopin (not Schubert and Griffes), but I cringe when I listen to Prairie Home Companion. Prairie Home Companion relies heavily upon a broad nostalgia in its storytelling. Younger generations won't have the same appreciation for it.
Another lesson the OP needs to have learned from this situation is that every project needs a billable assessment phase, a paid evaluation. The assessment phase is needed to address the company's business and project requirements.
"It was a job that had me patting down the crotches of children, the elderly and even infants"
Never make a job of what you love.
In the end it's still just a job, and you've ruined your hobby.
Um, does that mean his hobby is patting down the crotches of children and the elderly?
Because everyone knows knowledge and education breeds intolerance!
Yip. Tornados occur when two fronts collide, typically north and south.
Because of this, tornado season varies for all states. In Kansas and Oklahoma, tornado season is primarily in late spring to mid-summer. Other states, like Ohio, may have tornados in August through October.
If I recall correctly, in tornado alley they typically form on the south-east side of the two colliding fronts, at least on this hemisphere. So when you have the two fronts collide, the funnel will almost always form at the "end" of the storm.
I am inclined to think that even thousands is understatement. We still do not have an adequate apparatus to predict tornados. We still rely upon 3rd person accounts.
As for someone who has been raised in "tornado alley" and has seen over 100 tornados before the age 7, I find this hard to believe.
Britain is an island. Per unit area is not an appropriate way to justify this statement: "The UK has the most tornados in the world per unit area."
Having been raised in "Tornado Alley", the majority of Tornados go unreported. They are too commonplace. Plus, we have had tornados one mile in circumference. So if your'e going to use per unit area (since Britain is an island), you need to include the unit area of the tornados themselves. For instance, a one mile wide tornado that is on the ground for an hour will make the recorded history of *all* tornados occurring in the UK irrelevant.
Let me know when you see this...
That day, over 50 tornados were reported. I personally saw 7.
I have never heard of tornado-like weather being native to England. Perhaps our British brethren can elaborate on how this story is unique.
I found this to be the only effective argument with Republicans during W.'s administration.
+1 Finally, a sensible post.
