Does anyone know, is there a Kickstarter like service that provides you a percentile return on your investment depending on the success of the project, instead of just a t-shirt? If there is not I might have to start such a service of course using Kickstarter to source funds.

An anonymous reader writes "Sandia Research Laboratory believes it has come up with a much more efficient solution than heatsink-fan cooling a CPU that simply combines the heatsink and fan components into a single unit. What you effectively get is a spinning heatsink. The new design is called the Sandia Cooler. It spins at just 2,000 RPM and sits a thousandth of an inch above the processor. Sandia claim this setup is extremely efficient at drawing heat away from the chip, in the order of 30x more efficient than your typical heatsink-fan setup. The Sandia Cooler works by using a hydrodynamic air bearing. What that means is when it spins up the cooler actually becomes self supporting and floats above the chip (hence the thousandth of an inch clearance). Cool air is drawn down the center of the cooler and then ejected at the edges of the fins taking the heat with it. And as the whole unit spins, you aren't going to get dust build up (ever)."
The problem is not that the patient may have already committed a crime. Psychiatrist have to report a there mere fact that a patient has pedophile tendencies, no matter if they are acted on or not.
An anonymous reader writes "Last week we heard complaints from Mozilla that Windows RT would restrict users' choice in web browsers, unfairly favoring Internet Explorer over alternatives like Firefox and Chrome. Unfortunately for Microsoft, the situation is now on the Senate Judiciary Committee's radar, and they will look into claims that Microsoft is engaging in anti-competitive behavior. That said, it could be a difficult case to make, since Windows RT is destined for ARM-based tablets, and Apple currently dominates that market. 'When it comes to proving abuse of monopoly power, an important question is determining the market in which a monopolist has power — the relevant market, in antitrust legal terms. In the [late '90s] DOJ case, U.S. District Judge Thomas Penfield Jackson's findings of fact concluded Microsoft had a monopoly in the market for "Intel-compatible PC operating systems." Windows on ARM doesn't run on x86 chips, so by Jackson's standards, Windows RT hasn't been judged to be part of Microsoft's monopoly.' Microsoft addressed some of these issues in a blog post in February."

Whatever the reason for the 50Mb limit, especially pirates know how to use split RARs. With that kind of limit, you can't share high res PSDs, 3D renderings or anything else where a 25Gb online storage space actually makes sense. And actually, it sounds perfect for sharing music, even FLAC are less than 50Mb per track.
Have you tried Emacs?
And I thought I checked the "Disable Advertising" box on the front page.
There is a german IT news site called heise.de which appeals to a similar mindset as
/. Over there every can moderate and the "wrongthought" moderation is even worse to the point if that I do not pay attention to moderation any more nor do I actively moderate. This is just an example, but I am skeptical of opening up moderation to everyone. As an anecdote, for a while I was up-moderating posts which were punished for going against the /. groupthink. Suddenly I stopped getting any mod points for months, after having received them on a continuous basis. Gradually I am getting mod points again now. Maybe it was coincidental, but it is possibly part of the moderation system. If that is the case, that is where I would start making adjustments.
You should at least provide some arguments as to "why" you think those are bad examples. Otherwise do not be surprised to be modded flamebait.
Now, I can't tell if your parent poster was being sarcastic or not. So do you get laid or not. This could be a new poll.
