I have a 4s that hangs out with my keys in my pocket and the glass looks as good as the day it came from the factory. The thin bevel around the edge however has turned brown and looks like a moonscape. I am seriously impressed by the amount of abuse it has taken without acquiring a single scratch.

Or worse, you go to a lot of work to make a nifty DLC that adds like machines to process ore or something, and everybody goes: We already have a half dozen fan made mods that do that and do it better, no thanks. The Minecraft modding community is ridiculously large, especially given how hostile Mojang is to the mod community (not only is there no API, but they obfuscate the class names and make people re-reverse engineer the stupid game on every release, so mods go out of date quickly if they're not actively maintained).

Man, if only there were some way to look up information you don't know. Some service you could type a clearly easy to search for string like "llvm" into to get as much information on the topic as you need...

Are you reading Slashdot in print form in some place with no internet access? Do you have to call your secretary so she can type out the comments on a punched card to feed into the internetotron?

For what its worth, I've been doing work where I have to run Wireshark, Libreoffice, and Chrome on a Pi all at once and it handles the job admirably. Everything is a little pokey like you might expect, but it's really quite usable. One thing I cannot recommend enough: Make sure you go back to the raspi-config program and make sure your board is configured for "max factory OC", which allows it to run at 1Ghz instead of the stock 700Mhz. My board has remained rock solid, and thanks to the OC also bumping the memory clock the board is nearly twice as fast. It makes a huge difference in day to day use.
