Comment: Closest to work possible! (Score 4, Funny) 353

by jerep (#41213037) Attached to: How Long Is Your Morning Commute?

I have a 10 minutes walk to get to work. Since I live in Canada for 3/4 of the year that commute involves a snowstorm or bears, most often both. I'm thinking about moving closer to work.

I actually prefer moving closer to work, even with higher prices. It usually pays off since I get more productivity time for myself every day and less traffic frustrations, I'm at the point where I can actually walk to work and it is awesome. Still, barely close enough to come back home for lunch, so I'm moving again next year!

The good thing about the beta is that it will allow hackers to work on a bnet-to-lan emulator, which shouldn't really be harder than tracking packets and learning what they do.

heck if pirated servers for wow were functionnal before the actual game launched, this should be real easy to code.

You know, with each new government action that gets posted here on slashdot, my hope in democracy as it stands now fades away, I thought at one point it would disappears but now it appears I have negative hope towards democracy.

That system is now so corrupt it itself has trouble keeping track of what it stands for and makes decisions like.. texting health plans. That sounds like someone needing mass attention or wanting mass distractions to me.

Committees have become so important nowadays that subcommittees have to be appointed to do the work.
