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).
Books, mind you, have the distinct advantage of not having a large knife in the glove box.
"Let's just go forward with what we know"
Urgh. Frankly I prefer hypotheses and the scientific method.
the damage is not as severe as it seems as the smoke created was because the fire was concentrated in the air purification facilities that are linked to the rooftop of the fab
Heck, filling the building with smoke might even *improve* the quality of the air for the workers in those facilities!
The reviews are not flattering.
I quite like my Windows applications - Photoshop, MS Office, Matlab, Winamp... even ACDSee Pro.
You're living in the past, dude.
Have you not been introduced to streaming video for your porn needs?
"Wait. Other Linux developers don't eat their own dogfood?" That's right.
You do realise that a large percentage of open source projects are started with the intention of filling a need that is currently not satisified by other software? (Novel concept, I know!). And therefore, there is an imperative to "dogfood" as soon as possible.
Granted, those open source projects weren't led by an asshole dictator with a commercial imperative. And hey, I've been unfortunate enough to try Unity. Given that precedent for "usability", dog-fooding in this case may well be a painful process
The structure you describe (pump-and-dump) beautifully encapsulates the behavior of the feeder funds who delivered Madoff a large portion of his billions. But we don't remember that as a pump-and-dump now.
And: bitcoin was created by a well known and reputable entity (cough), with security methodologies ensuring value that are thoroughly understood by it's investors (cough) and are traded on open, transparent exchanges (cough). Why, the chances of that being a ponzi scheme would be like that of a stock certificate sold by the chairman of the Nasdaq himself being fraudulent!
Given that no-one is admitting to that purchase, is it beyond the realm of belief that they brought those themselves?
And so, it becomes clearer why the Google Chrome logo has the "666" hidden in it - so you can have not only the name of the beast on your chosen device... but also.. the number of his name!
Kind of a shame really, cause I was totally sure that Steve Jobs was the Anti-Christ. Eric Schmidt is a bit of a let down.
