Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
Those are sales lost as the person would normally use real money to buy the points to get the game. The codes were for only 160 points. But if you redeem a thousand of them...
NONSENSE! Stolen bits != lost sale. Obviously if a persons wallet is not tied to their spending they will spend a lot more. Do you work for the RIAA? Though I am against piracy now, back when napster/limewire were cool, I may have downloaded some music/games. If the limewire option wasn't available to me, I promise I would not have had any interest in buying them. Honestly, it created interest in me for some music and I ended up buying some CDs because I like owning an original CD with a cover not made with a Sharpie.
Unfortunately it wouldn't help anyone fix their spelling mistakes.

Apprently. I find this line interesting: the reason browser back buttons work in Gmail is an invisible, seamless use of iframes that create browser history. Isn't this actually due to the use of # in the URL when you click things?
Actually it is a bit more complex than that. A Hash is just an link to an anchor on the current page. I am not sure how gmail works exactly, but I use extjs at work and it manages the history with an iframe as well. It needs a way to keep track of all the history tokens so it uses an iframe. Check out its source code if you are interested. http://www.extjs.com/deploy/dev/docs/source/History.html
Half the health care debate wasn't on CSPAN at all... we could go back and see the insanity over and over again
Theres was a debate?
Printed and bound as when I'm done with them I use them to heat my house. In some cases I don't even bother read them first; I mean what other possible reason people could have for purchasing Microsoft Press books?
Just because you, and most other people on Slashdot, do not like Microsoft, doesn't mean they have no valuable knowledge to bring to the table. Code Complete is a book that is essentially a must-read for programmers and was published by Microsoft Press.
Is it an African or a European octopus?
What? I don't know that! Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
