Loved it growing up. I learned a lot from the al stevens run of articles where he built a terminal program.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
Anyone who has ever had these little bastards in their house could have told you how good they are at evading predators.
My first program was:
10 PRINT "FUCK YOU ";
20 GOTO 10
I lovingly entered it into every department store demo that I ever walked past.
Are they virtualizing this?
Amazon should give the retailer who sold the kindle a little taste on each purchase that is made on the device.
I would go and see this chimp if they would let me throw the stones back at him. Hell, I'd even pay good money.
I'd imagine that varies from state to state.
When we (the US) get rid of the penny there will be a HUGE supply of zinc out there.
He was gonna answer that question but he took and arrow to the knee.
You meant driving the car with ads, right?
This is google we're talking about.
So so true. There is now a huge section in bookstores (B&N) called "Teen paranormal romance." It's as large as other sections with names like "Fiction", "Reference", and "Non-fiction".
I would love to hear the howling if it was microsoft introducing this sandboxed native client.
Er, we're talking about megabytes.
On the other hand, a private mint could notice that proof grade 1909-S-VDB pennies sell for slightly more than pennies from a 2010 proof set, and there is really nothing stopping a private mint from making a new run of "model 1909-S-VDB psuedopennies"
Except that it's counterfeiting and illegal in the US. Law does provide for re-strikes which are stamped with the word "COPY" to be created and distributed, though.
I am told that a large number of "collectable" coins are manufactured/faked in China.
China is churning these out an alarming rate. And they are not stamped with copy. Some of them are very well executed, but an educated collector can generally tell the fake from the real. Additionally, there are a number of 3rd party grading companies and you get authentication along with the grade.
Also, there is no such thing as a 1909-S-VDB proof. Proof is not a grade, it's a method of manufacture. There were no proof coins minted in San Francisco in 1909.
