Not to mention Panera internet (at least for me) is very slow compared to Starbucks and Panera also blocks VPN.
Make the comments wider and the stories on the front page a little easier to tell apart.
1) The comments are way too narrow. Look at a place like reddit. I think of slashdot as the more tech-oriented reddit where the empathizes is on commenting and reading the comments. Due to this, many people post long comments, having them all smashed just makes it harder to read. I don't come to Slashdot to read the articles, I come here to read the comments.
2) Right now on the front page it's difficult to glance and see each story because everything is the same color. Take a look at the current page - each story has a bright green line which makes them very easy to quickly scan and figure out which one you want to read.
This sounds interesting. I could see this going poorly depending on the way the company approached It though.
Most of my professors upload all of their slides to the school CMS for all students to download. So if you really need it, you can already do this.
However out of all the browsers I've switched between using on a daily basis Firefox is by far the most crashy. Hell, even IE 10 is more stable.
I have Skype on my 9930. Haven't tried phone calls but the messaging works fine.
Yeah, I don't entirely understand why apple is having such a rough time getting basic time keeping and scheduling working...
1999 Saturn SL, manual transmission, listed as 27MPG city and I think 35 MPG highway. I definitely averaged around 32MPG or so for my normal commute. And this was not the highest mileage commonly available auto out there.
You're comparing the mpg of a car to that of an SUV, of course you're going to get higher...
I initially thought this while reading the article, but then I realized that the people interviewed were people who lived in the apartments and thus parked in that lot every night.
I too would have my car towed to a dealership after this happened more than a few times - especially with a new car. A pirate radio station is so far outside of the realm of everyday possibilities of your car malfunctioning that even some basic troubleshooting would have completely missed this issue.
"instead of waiting 4-5 seconds to do something, i am interested in spending hours of effort to recreate/relearn it on a different platform"
Why not use the "agonizing eternity" of 4-5 seconds to reflect on life, maybe hum a song, or do anything that helps your mind relax before you develop ADD and can ONLY do math?
what karma? it's friday.
I suggest just getting a better calculator.
You tend to get used to something like a calculator with muscle memory and all of that. If you were out of school I would say go for the computer, but while you're in school, and subject to the restrictions of exams, it makes a lot more sense to just stick with using what you're always going to be using.
Really? How many articles are we going to have about Windows 8 and how much hates it.
Surely it must be getting old to even the die-hard anti-windows fan...
Server: SMTP, IMAP, CalDav, LDAP
Looks like Exchange and Outlook to me...
Except the setup on the client side for exchange is: "Type in your email address and password" and the rest is configured automatically.
Yes it does but she no longer has a Palm device (she switched to the iPhone about a year or two ago) and was stuck on version 4 of the software. She was just using Palm desktop at that point to look up old contacts and notes she had made just I just used the move as an opportunity to just put everything in the same place in Outlook.
Moved to Windows 8 on all of my machines (Home, Work and Laptop) as well as moved both of my parents over from XP to 8.
Really like it so far. It does appear to be a lot faster on my machines. I don't really use metro on my desktop machines, but I use it almost exclusively on my laptop as I mostly just use my laptop for web browsing any way.
My dad really likes 8, my mom doesn't care either way, I'm just glad to get her off of Windows XP and use that as an excuse to get her out of Outlook Express and Palm Desktop for managing her contacts and mail to Outlook so I won't have to deal with any more end of life products.
Every Windows box ships with a key on the side of it that you can use with an OEM Windows disk to put a fresh install on...
