@RepMikeRogers I wonder if calling me a 14yro in a basement & implying I'm uneducated&unprosperous bc I disagree with you counts as slander
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).
As much as I'd like to see Congress give the USPS much more independence, I do think that unprofitable offices and routes should remain open or be replaced by something to service them (more cheaply).
I know supercomputing centers that do this: the heat from the server room is used to heat the building. I'm not 100% sure of the details but it's worked for quite a long time without incident. I don't think building HVAC is used to cool the room, but somehow heat is exchanged.
6 OF 1 you mean? Or am i missing a joke?
>They're like the Amish except with no balls.
Actually, the Amish don't discount technology and science as evil or anti-christian, but they feel that a simpler life is a better life. IIRC they feel that the modern western life distracts from Fod, not that it conflicts with God.
I don't think there is anything inherently wrong with analytics. Perhaps you don't like Google's methods or something like that, but you could do your own on server logs. Analytics can be very useful for figuring out if something is working or not (e.g.: A/B testing and funnel analysis) or just how users are using your site in order to make it more usable.
I wonder if this is just as effective as the scanners in the airport, and what the cost difference is.
I'm not 100% sure how this isn't exactly what a future terrorist would need to get something through security. If not everyone is treated equal you create the perfect flaw in the system. That said, the current system doesn't actually protect us anyway, so a flaw in a horribly flawed system is just meh.
I wish I had the time and knowledge to write a well-worded letter I could print and mail to my rep and senators.

Ditto, the deletionists are why I have such mixed feelings about wikipedia. I don't see any good reason a legit article shouldn't be deleted based on some persons definition of fame.
I was in the middle of writing a site for bug/feature bounties that any project could sign up and use, but I'm not quite able to demo it yet. I've slowed work because I got tons of negative feedback on the idea from people thinking that it's a beaten concept and there was no reason to write a (better) app since others are out there. I'm still working, but slowly.
It's funny that the site is just an image and not section 508 compliant. Can something be done about that? Can they be sued for not following the law?
Also, I'd like to see the warrants for all this but I don't have the time or money to follow through with a FOIA.
I'm not sure what you're talking about. Why would I have to recover from something that was never even rumored to exist?
