Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
It isn't cute, it is CEOs taking advantage of YOU directly, and looking like heroes when they do it.
I would imagine it's more fun to just spend the next month watching week to week as nature intended
I don't think nature intended us to be sitting on our asses to watch stories happen on animated flat canvases.
Nature rewards us grandly for it. If "nature" didn't intend us to seek food and entertainment, our bodies wouldn't fill our junkie brains with dopamine when we do it.

One night, he came out of his room long after bedtime crying and told me that earlier he copied someone's script into a level he made in Roblox, and now he was sure he was going to get banned because the game thought he was cheating
it was 10:00 at night and I loaded up his Roblox account, and edited the script right in front of him. It was something like this psudocode: wait(1 minute) display message("You have been caught cheating, your account will be deleted in 5 days") end
I changed it to display a stupid message like "If you see this it means you got trolled by someone who understands scripting"
He felt better, but more importantly he learned that "understanding scripting" is important and powerful... and that even his old dad who "just knows other scripting and not lua" is better than nothing.
Am I in any G8 country other than USA, your country protects its citizens, and the corporation is required to notify you, and provide a reason if you will be let go.
everything stupid and petty we do as a community puts another nail into that coffin. Having our most prestigious award turned into a poor downtrodden straight white male protest is a freaking deathblow.
It is just a fancy way of saying that their routers at the end of the street are full.
My service was shut off.
I called and they said "Service is not available in your area.
I told them I had service yesterday, and they confirmed that I did, but that it was a mistake, and service was not available.
We went around and around, I finally gave up after 2 hours on the phone, vowing to sign up with someone else. No other service available, and since I was at the bottom of a valley, EVEN SATELLITE was not available.
After a few more days of phone calls and escalations, I finally straight up asked them "Is the CO/RT full and you didn't realize it until you hooked me up?" they admitted that yes it was.
I made a deal with my neighbor, bought her network equipment and paid her phone bill every month just for letting me use her wifi.
THEN to add insult to injury, I got a contract cancellation fee bill from Verizon in the mail, because I terminated my contract for DSL before a year was up.
But we all know it is suspension of disbelief, and no serious consideration.
Ok now that you are back you probably know how solarcity works right? No? Weird because you'd think it is pretty simple.
Here is how it works, once you TALK TO THEM ON THE PHONE they will send you "do not disclose" paperwork that amounts to: You pay to install solar cells on your roof, then you pay to keep them clear of tree branches etc, then you buy electricity from the solar cells at slightly higher than municipal power rates, then you buy the rest of your power from the municipality or other provider at the normal price. Then they uninstall them 20 years later for free.
100% of tax credits go to Solar City.
I really don't understand why you would do this over green mountain or some other "renewable at a slightly higher price to make you feel better" kind of place. SolarCity is a complete rip, offering all of the disadvantages of a grid-tied solar install, with none of the advantages. For my particular area, the more power their solar cells would generate, the higher my electric bill would be.
