Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
Boycott Dell. Boycott slashdot. 23:23 here - I'm outahere, no other stories look interesting.
And it's 23:something here, so for me the boycott starts very soon.
Here's to increased productivity for (at least) a week.
Just in case...
# echo '127.0.0.1 slashdot.org' >
Why is that a positive trait when the requester and recipient is a child at bedtime, but not a positive trait when the requester and recipient is an adult?
Not next week though, for obvious reasons. Just because the poo-flinging has died down doesn't mean there's no boycott.
If you're too stupid to have noticed the functional changes, then you're quite simply too stupid for pretty much anything. In particular as people have repeatedly whined about those functional changes.
Enjoy your dumbed-down slashdot beta, you sound like a perfect match for it.
Thanks for posting that.
See you on Technocrat, I hope...
Jeeeesus! I just got a 0.5s view of Beta. It burns the eyes its so ugly. Back button! Back button! Phew!
I've seen some wonderful audio-processing (functional/mathematical) code which was entirely software in implementation, but entirely graphical in design. You could literally build your own Yamaha DX7 (pretty much all pads, almost every one had been reverse engineered/mimicked to within indistinguishability) from just drag-and-drop boxes and a single frequency input (dependent on the keypress, obviously).
I wish I'd written it myself, I'd been thinking about such a design for about a decade. Some Finn (IIRC, don't remember the name) beat me to it (no surprise really, my inertia is high). Respect to him.
And fuck slashdot beta
Every "distributor" should go bust - you are redundant, and have been for over a decade.
Having said that - ``|'' and ``>'' are graphical. So probably all shell programming is in part visual.
Having said that, that the fuck am I on?!?!?!? I write perl, and perl looks like ASCII art, it certainly doesn't look like text.
Mod down story, story bollocks.
A noisy prick with better grammar (or spelling depending on what mistake you think has been made) than you.
I'd rather listen to angry noisy people with conviction than people who just put up with whatever wave of shit washes over them next.
(Appologies for not invoking Skitt's Law in the above.)
This is Readers' Wives.
My opinion may be ugly, it may even offend you, but it's mine, and I'm gonna lay it out in front of you whether you like it or not!
Fuck Gaurav Kuchhal the fuckup, Head of Product at Slashdot.
That press release still mentions and quotes Alice Hill the fuckup. However it positions here clearly in "DICE" rather than Slashdot-anything.
