but for random bursts of input when altering or creating new code. Sure speed helps at those times, but not for long times like typists. More like video game accurate shooting from time to time than constant drums playing.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
and we can get rid of ether. I mean, black matter.
No "next page" needed.
The Asimos were created by Honda.
They were created to make life easier on Japan.
And then the day came when the Asimos decided to kill their masters.
After a long and bloody struggle, an armistice was declared.
The Asimos left for another world to call their own.
A remote internet forum was built...
Where Asimos and human could flame and post pics.
Every year, the Slashdotters send a poster...
The Asimos send no one.
No one has seen or heard from the Asimos in over forty years...
How many common sense "truths" have turned out to be not so true when properly analyzed over the history of human scientific endeavor?
Give me some anecdotal evidence of that.
I disagree. If one is to make an educated decision, it should be over an educated issue. If there's an EULA five thousands words long, there's too much detail to make an educated guess.
EULAs and other agreements such as the mentioned in TFA should be less than five hundred words long, otherwise they are void unless signed by the user's lawyer as well.
They are just beta testing, as usual. In a few decades lots and lots of what today is dry land will be underwater. They could wait a bit and claim they are showing underwater imagery but no, it's Google, they need a beta.

Yeah, I know, I know... how is the web going to survive without ads, my servers are down, karma whore... who cares, I just don't want to click Next six times.
For my next one, I thought I would canvas the collective wisdom of Slashdot =), for opinions on effective ways of securing a bike.
I've had people suggest U-locks are the best, and others that a heavy-duty chain from a hardware store with a padlock would do it better.
One person suggested somehow welding a car-alarm to the seat post, but I'm not exactly sure how this would work.
Alternatively, one idea I tossed us was using a GPS/GSM module (e.g. one from the Telit range) glued under the seat to send me the coordinates of the bike.
Finally, some people suggested sabotaging the bike somehow. Removing the seat seems to be a common option, but it is ultimately still rideable. Is there perhaps some way of making it so that it won't actually spin? (Most of the elements in the drivechain are tightened down fairly well, for obvious reasons, I can't think of anything that could easily be removed yet still be essential to the bike's operation).
Any thoughts on these ideas, or other suggestions?"
From the article:
"Toward that end, (Dwight) Loftis, House Speaker Bobby Harrell and others have introduced a bill, H. 3569, that would create the S.C. Wireless Technology and Communications Commission, a body tasked with implementing a statewide wireless broadband network, possibly as early as late 2008."
Is this another case of politicians getting their tubes mixed up, or is a statewide wireless network possible?"
