We're pining for the Fjords!
Christ. This article, like so many here at Slashdot, summarizes to: Usability matters. Usability matters A LOT. Open source developers still don't fucking get it.
Here's a thought: if you want people to stop using Word, why not make something better than Word? Shocking.
Christ. This comment, like so many here at Slashdot, summarizes to: Not being a dick matters. Not being a dick matters A LOT. Some commenters still don't fucking get it.
Here's a thought: if you want people to start taking you seriously, why not stop being such an patronising dick? Shocking.
Payback, that is, for all the hurricanes they send us every year. Suck on it, Africa.
Batten down the hatches, boys. Hurricane season next year might be a bit... uncomfortable...
Reading the associated Twitter account, the voice seems young and very un-South African to my mind. Seems more like US or British youf.
My initial reaction was one of incredulous fury...
And then I realised, based on last visit to my local cop-shop, that this probably had less to do with breaking in and more to do with some incompetent leaving the door unlocked...
I'm feeling sorry for the (probably last two) remaining decent cops in the SAPS. Stuff like this must be damned demoralising.
But I think you are right that this is a foreigner; but from the Twitter bio I get the feeling this is an Aussie.
Playing with the clutch can easily get you out of snow without having to shovel for half an hour. Downshifting is also a lot more efficient than ABS when trying to break on an icy road.
No, it's not! Down shifting to break on ice is beyond stupid.
Two people who can't spell in a row?
Well, since I live at the southern tip of Africa (y'know: that huge piece of land on the middle of your World Map) I know very little about Icy Roads (never even seen one, thank goodness) and I have never driven an automatic car either (nothing to do with Africa, that; that was just a matter of choice)...
With that out of the way, braking on ice sounds like a keen way of breaking the ice... Though chatting her up in a bar sounds, if a lot more boring, at least a lot safer. Depending on the bar, of course.
Oh? That's not what they meant? Okay, never-mind then...
That's the end of you, then, Earth-invading Martian Scum!
Cumulous, I think. This is because they tend to build vertically, leaving space one from another.
i would go with cirrus, as they seem to be more spread out across the sky!
With slashdot's 15+ year history, coming here and reading trolls this transparently bad is frankly an insult. Whoever wrote this should be ashamed. Is this your very first troll? Did you just discover this site and say "hey this looks easy, I'm not even going to try"? Please.
Typical slashdot - classify anything against groupthink as troll with no explanation.
Now see guys, this is how you troll...
Maybe F18 should be considered VM only?
Except for one tiny problem: I can't even get it to install on VMWare over here...
Since I am a certified RHCE and have been installing and running Linux systems since before there even was a RedHat distribution I was slightly taken aback by that...
Be that as it may, Mint installed cleanly and easily, so I'll stick with recommending that to others for the time being...
Just hang everyone who may have a different sense of right and wrong from you.
Kill them all, god will know his own

There are days I'm really glad I live in Africa... At least we can easily identify our despots...
IANAA (I am not an American) but why don't they turn the tables on the Newspaper and publish the names, specialities and addresses of the editorial staff of the paper in a full-page advertisement in its biggest rival in the city?
I assume that most of that data should be "publicly available" via some means or other...
After all, turnabout is still considered fair play in most places.
