Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
The [European Air Force] was founded in 16th December 1998 by Serval and some other flight sim players from the Netherlands.
Oh c'mon. HHGTTG was originally a radio series, and worked well in that form. It worked far better, IMHO, as books.
But how could anyone *ever* turn the books, with their nuanced and nerdy humor, into a single feature film (or even a series of films)? Of course, movies are rarely as good as the books they're made from--and if they are, they're still *always* very different stories.
Movie-fying HHGTTG just wasn't possible.
When I went to see the movie I had low, low expectations, and wasn't disappointed. I wish no one had attempted such an impossible feat, but what they produced was just as good as I expected. It was, incidentally, pretty crappy. Or at least, I'm sure Marvin would have thought so.
(I didn't RTFA, but it sounds as if this article *might* have been written by someone who did some actual research.)
Yes, a slightly different execution, but sounds like the same basic tech.
Opt-out is good to have if it works (like you'd ever know...). But I don't think most people know that Google is even doing this. I had no idea until I got a job working with traffic information systems. Before that, I always assumed Google Traffic was getting data from local governments (e.g. from loop sensors embedded in the pavement, etc.).
According to a local news story I heard reported a few weeks ago, there are systems in place used for traffic monitoring that already grabbing wireless data from people's cell phones. Apparently the technique is being used simply to model traffic patterns and for planning purposes.
Yes, there certainly are such systems, and they're not all that new. The most prominent one is probably Google Traffic.

When it's hidden so deeply (in Chromium) that I had to keep referring back to your instructions to find exactly where it was, I'd say that installing Flashblock is about 10x easier. In any case, thanks for the tip.
Aside from compatibility testing, about the only reason I ever use Chromium is for viewing sites which break with Firefox+Flashblock. So I guess I'll find out before long if Chromium's "click to play" feature is any better on such obnoxious sites.
Click-to-play should the default for all video and/or sound-producing content, with the ability to easily whitelist sites you trust.
Yes, in salt water you DO have free sodium and chlorine ions floating around. That's exactly what you have. Sodium (Na+) and Chlorine (Cl-) ions, that is. They are not molecules at this point. Boil off the water and the ionic bonds reform, recreating crystalline salt (NaCl).
Yes, at least one person around here definitely needs to review their chemistry notes.
As soon as I see an "ibtimes" domain, I know better than to RTFA. I don't understand why
So how about looking for some alternate sources? Googling "Zeleniy Yar mummies" suggests that this isn't some ibtimes hoax after all.
This Siberian Times article seems to have the most information with lots of great pictures, the fewest ads, and other sites credit it as their source:

U.S. investigators suspect Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 flew for hours past the time it reached its last confirmed location, based on an analysis of signals sent through the plane's satellite-communication link designed to automatically transmit the status of onboard systems, according to people familiar with the matter. An earlier version of this article and an accompanying graphic incorrectly said investigators based their suspicions on signals from monitoring systems embedded in the plane's Rolls-Royce PLC engines and described that process.
Which, due to Linux's efforts to guard every user account against every other user account, is an absolute nightmare.
With a comment like that, it's quite apparent you don't know much about Linux system administration. You should read up on the appropriate uses of 'sudo' before you go messing things up.
