And we should believe Apple why? Who thinks that if Apple gets a national security letter that they're not going to comply? And what about access to the increasing proportion of data that is stored on Apple's servers instead of the local iPhone? Is Apple going to say no to the NSA/FBI/CIA on that, too?
We've heard these promises before.
'Zactly. There are PILES of PHP and Perl snippet that filter quotes, or allow Unicode.
I have tried typing Russian (Cyrillic) and Persian (Arabic-derived) into the site in the past. Ouch.
I am pleased that Scotland has the opportunity to vote for independence, but believe it would be a stupid decision. The UK is a large, important country in Europe. They have the ability to influence world decisions with an infrastructure built up across two world wars and the cold war. Should Scotland spin off, the Scots themselves will lose world influence.
Slashdot needs to get out of the nineties and into the 21st century.

As to your surgery, LISTEN TO THE DOCTOR!!! Helping that one person could prevent you from helping others in the future. Oh, and I empathize; I had a vitrectomy in 2008. Not the least bit fun.

dry wave power=wind
feed the energy into water to produce hydrogen, I think he means.
Or just in an emergency, raise the gate on the wave device and let the water wash UNDER it.
I find this show difficult to watch, because it seems to mock the people and groups I grew up with. I have since married and become a bit more "normal", giving up my D&D and video game habits. I do not like seeing my friends (and my self) mocked. I do not believe I have ever met people as lovely, self-effacing and generous as those called geeks.
Those would have been valuable questions to ask.
Most moralities, that's true. For one, however, it is implied by the physical universe we live in, and is as objective as physics.
If a liberal arts degree holder actually had critical thinking skills, he would never have gotten a liberal arts degree.
Convert to Islam or die.
This is not, nor has it ever been a central tenet of Islam. This cannot be viewed in political or historical isolation.
"Convert to Christianity under Papal authority or die by red-hot poker" was a governing principal of church and state - at the center of Europe's most powerful empire, for nearly 200 years. It was never the message of Jesus, regardless of your belief in Christianity. But scripture and political expropriation of pseudo-theology made that it seem so.
I hope someday you have a daughter who marries a an African Muslim. You might be forced to reconsider many of the things that you "know" so assuredly.
I got no problem with the concept of civilization being built upon blood and bones, I just don't see it as the ultimate evil. Close, but no cigar.
