They should take this site and give it a new name. Or get Malda to let them use "Chips & Dips".

Leave everything else intact, archives, user ID database, everything except the name.

Then use the Beta code and start a new site and give it the slashdot.org name, and they can have what they want without the embarrassment of having the current userbase escape from the basement or the attic and offend the sensibilities of the yuppies or hipsters or metrosexuals or whoever it is that they really want for an "audience"."

Its confusing, but from the report it actually sounds like theres 300 tonnes total of the 'stand near a puddle for an hour to get your annual dose' stuff and 300 tonnes per day leaking of the less radioactive waste water they're using to keep the ponds of spent reactor rods cool.

Now to convert to units we all understand!

http://www.loc.gov/about/facts.html claims 745 miles of bookshelves in the Library of Congress Assuming they're 1' deep by 2' high we get 1 LOC = 0.000053 cubic miles (puny library!) therefore the oceans occupy 5,987,307,382,550.34 Libraries of Congress.
