Submission + - No ponies to be seen, Slashdot sellout now complete.

An anonymous reader writes: After nearly 15 years of steady decline, it appears that Slashdot is now completed the transition to "Ordinary Media". From banning the Cowboy Neal option in polls to the addition of a Politics section, from the introduction of fancy HTML to the loss of Cmdr Taco, sadness has gradually descended on the land of the Troll and the home of the Geek. And now the final nail, in the last board laid down over what was once a true place of news of for nerds, the apparent banning of April Fool's day stories. Or is it just that there is no one left who cares?

9.10 with Nvidia 190.42 works great. Took a bit of work at first to get right moving from 180 as things kinda became a mess. Had to add my users to the video group manually and fix the start-up script. frames are up to 12K from 5K with glxgears. pulseaudio was a problem as the SDL lib for it was not installed. I had to get rid of the old ALSA one and put in the pulse one along with adding my users to the pulse-audio group.

That's about it.. all minor issues to me except for the usual learning curve which is a bit steep to find and resolve these things, but it's the price we pay.

Agreed, but one also looks to Science Fiction where Science, though not predominant to the story, serves as somewhat accurate glimpses into the future.. But GL gets away from that right in the beginning of the movie with "A long time ago, in a galaxy far far away"

If one is looking to Science Fiction for the Science aspect, there are better ways to find it. Through books for example.
