Dude, do you get jokes?
Dude, do you even lift?

Commit to keeping classic and a lot of this could go away. We don't care what your default look is, just keep the crazy bad ugly classic as an option.
It is simple. Give the people what they want or they will find something new to migrate to.
Cheers for a week, maybe more...

The palm site does work pretty darn well...
Most importantly, we want you to know that Classic Slashdot isn't going away until we're confident that the new site is ready.
Really? Is it that hard to have multiple front-ends forever?
On mobile I surf off the Palm front end. It works just fine. I assume you are going to kill that too?
Sometimes I use a RSS feed. Is that going to be killed as well?
Some of your management staff and IT folks should be publicly fired as a show of good will to the community.
How do you post a top level comment?
Vertical space is an issue.
Titles are not set apart in any way.
User info is not displayed.
Fonts look terrible on my machine.
Generally awful all around. As an old-timer (UID 2977) since before they even had accounts, this may be the end of it all for many many people...
How is this technology related?
It appears to just be click spam posted during Australian daytime fishing for hits.
Keep looking for that new low,
We were using the PC Jr for Pascal in late 80s HS CS classes. They were completely adequate and had that distinctive higher end IBM look and feel. There were a bunch of terrible beige box PCs at the time and the IBMs actually looked ok and seemed to work fine for what we did.
My favorite though was the Compaq luggable beast. About 40lbs in a suitcase form factor, the thing was a beast! Dad splurged for dual 5.25" drives and we eventually got a 30 MB 1.5 slot HDD.
I have used MuseScore for a few simple things and I liked it a lot for making decent written scores. Plus, the community often has great stuff available to help get projects started.
We went down recently and got the Magic Bands. Disney uses them in five ways:
1. Ticket into the park
2. "Fast pass+" for some rides in the park
3. Purchases (with a pin, if your card is tied in)
4. Room access if staying on resort.
5. Photo pass (photos shot by in park employees)
In most cases, these are actions that for >95% of us would be tied to our credit card transaction. Even the old paper fast passes would have been tied to your park ticket (which is probably tied to your credit card).
The photo pass is one that previously was not tied to your credit card in any way. You would take pictures and get a code, if you never bought the code or tied the code to your online disney account they would not have your picture. But I am sure Disney has plenty of CCD in place and could tie in your entering the park to a picture if they wanted.
I really doubt they are tracking people in the park. Their RFID sensors stink! You have to orient the band just right to get the RFID close to the sensor. You have to hold it still and sometimes swipe two or three times. I doubt they are long range scanning your RFID in the park without your knowledge.
Also, you only get three of the new fast pass+ "experiences" in the park each day. So they really will only see you in three spots. For them, this stuff is probably more useful for load leveling than privacy invasion.
BTW, problems with the system have been all over the place. Disney invested almost a billion in it and they were considering dropping it, but it worked pretty well for us.
So in summary, if you are skeevy about this at Disney World, pay cash or use gift cards to buy your tickets.
Honestly, it has been years. The last time I checked all X apps ran in a single window on OSX. At least my Mac buddies claimed that was the best they could do. Maybe I will give it another shot?
"you know, the main technical drawback to mac osx, is the lack of x...."
One main reason I have never moved to max was the limited support for X the last time I checked.
So technically you are correct because I don't use a mac due to their technical limitations.
Back in the day, a story wasn't a story until it hit slashdot at least three times, a trupe.
I still remember seeing a story duped on the front page just a couple of posts between the two, like the "editors" didn't even look at the site.
