I just tried browsing the full site on iPhone and switched to HTML5 mode. Doesn't seem to work, just displays a crossed over play-icon.
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).
Their career page acutally says:
"We are a "customer-centric" organization looking for people that want to grow..."
" Is a masters in computer engineering better than two years of experience at a company?"
No, but you should get a masters degree anyway since it'll make it much easier to get your first job and it's actually "proof" of knowledge much more so than work experience. That said, you'll probably learn a whole lot more during your first two years working than the entire time studying.
As a fun comparison, Swedish wind power is in total currently operating at 5% efficiency (swedish).
I am seriously considering to hook up one of these USB Missile Launchers to our continuos integration server at work. When someone checks in code that doesn't compile or breaks tests the launcher targets the offending developer (using pre-determined login aiming mapping) and fires a couple of rounds at him. That'll certainly increase code quality!
I just tried and American iTunes Store is still not blocked in Europe at least. I somehow fail to see that I'm doing something criminal when I buy music and shows from American iTunes using "gift cards", instead of pirating the goods from a torrent site, which would have been the only viable alternative.
"Almost everybody out there, including the true geeks, runs Windows at work because they have to."
I think this is about to change, if it hasn't already. At my two recent jobs (software engineering/programming) it was fine to use Linux. Perhaps not encouraged, but perfectly fine if you could manage it. At my new job I'll get a MacBook Pro (with OS X obviously) when I start there.
You'll need to download some software and go through a relatively lengthy modification process that'll probably void your warranty, but you don't have to crack open the phone. It's all software and SIM card related. The tutorial has been copied..."

I feel kinda isolated here. Everytwhere around me people are using Windows, and to speak the truth so am I, eventhough I'm protected by a layer of Cygwin. Everyone seems to understand that Unix is something really really great and powerful and they seem impressed and awed by my skill at it. We might be migrating one important server sooner or later. We're already only using open source servers like apache and mysql. It's me and one other guy that are unix fans. Or, actually, we're both Apple

Windoze Longhorn is trying to look like OS X but it's not even close and I don't think it'll ever be.
