Yes Miss Berthnal, I did my homework.
No, I didn't hand it in. It is being reviewed by my attorney. You'll likely get it in 6-12 months, although it may be a bit longer. There were some excellent concepts there that he says need protection.
MINT? You tell me what you use but offer absolutely no information to support it. Might as well be saying " My God is better that your God ". So I give very little value to your input. I've actually seen Mint and used the Live DVDs. As a Live DVD I like it better than Knoppix, which I have used for many years (without really gaining the knowledge of Linux that I would like). But as far as I know Mint is based on Debian and I see no reason to to install Mint over Debian. Maybe you need an install dumbed down, I don't need or want that.
1) Get rid of the "clickbait" ads that are frequently at the bottom of the page. Clickbait ads may not be the most offensive (that honor goes to either pop-ups or forced videos) but they are pretty hated and pretty offensive.
2) If you're going to tell a long time user that they have he ability to disable ads and "Thanks again for helping make Slashdot great! ", then really disable ads, not just a subset of the ads. Makes us feel like you can't even do that right.
3) Quit including ads that look like content (even with the different color).
A good supervisor can step on your toes without messing up your shine.
