With web development you are coding but you also get to spend a lot of time with various departments and people organizing various aspects of the site you're designing. Web development has a lot of creative aspects too for things like creating images, interactive media, and user interfaces. Just my two cents. -djv

Battery powered electric cars seem like a great idea for most of the warmer climates, but here in Winnipeg it's -45 F with the windchill. The motor in my electric window struggled to work this morning even after the engine had warmed up.

What happens when EVERYTHING is powered by electricity?

An anonymous reader writes "T-Mobile's G1 phone, the first commercially available Android based phone, has been rooted. The exploit is extremely simple to execute, just requiring you to run telnetd from a terminal on the phone, and then connecting to the phone via telnet."
It's funny.  Laugh.

EA Recommends Hilarious Work-Around For RA3 CD-Key 301

from the you-gotta-be-kidding-me dept.
sunderbear noted that EAs Command & Conquer 3 shipped missing the last digit of the CD Key. He writes "EA's brightest minds have put their synapses into overdrive in order to whip up a comical work-around. 'There is currently a work-around that may allow you to bypass this issue. Since you have the first 19 characters of the code already, you can basically try guessing the last character,' said a note on EA's customer support site. Yes, they're serious. 'To do this, simply enter your existing code, and then for the last character, try the letters A-Z, and then the numbers 0-9. You should eventually get the right combination, and be able to play the game.'" It appears that the helpful hint has been purged.

Be careful when a loop exits to the same place from side and bottom.
