+ - Dice Ruins Slashdot-> 12

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "In an attempt to modernize Slashdot, Dice has removed everything that made Slashdot unique and worthwhile and has turned it into a generic blog site. User feedback has been unanimously negative, but this is to no avail, and users will have to head elsewhere for insightful and entertaining commentary on tech news."

Even (especially?) biological processes. Somebody once posted a nice short progression of the basic chemistry involved in a similar topic here on /. not too long ago.

Ain't nothin' free. Break it down? It has to break down into something...

Did anyone else RTFA and notice that the original author concedes that 'The extra hour of light from daylight savings time won't burn the crops, but this might.' ??

WTF? So - people freaked out over this new doom also accept that daylight savings time creates an extra hour of daylight. But that's ok - that won't burn the crops. 24 hours of daylight might.


I think I'm going to become a Nigerian Prince in need of your assistance...
