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).
I hope this gets reverted. I have been browsing Slashdot since the late 90s, probably the 4-digit era, and this is the first time I've considered no longer visiting the site.
Too derivative. We need something a little more clever; obscure. Firebird?
The most important keyboard shortcut I use in Outlook 2007 is to select my signature. Unfortunately, it is extremely similar to the keyboard shortcut for setting high importance and easy to accidentally trigger, so yes, I send more than my share of falsely "high importance" messages. It's so silly that I actually write apology follow ups when this happens.
I think Outlook 2007 has been the best edition so far overall (haven't used 2010) yet they still struggle to avoid going gold without the most fundamental usability issues.
Thanks to your comment I read the Wikipedia article in its entirety and the below excerpt is phenomenal:
Despite the lack of time, [Captain Eric] Moody made an announcement to the passengers that has been described as "a masterpiece of understatement":
Ladies and gentlemen, this is your captain speaking. We have a small problem. All four engines have stopped. We are doing our damnedest to get them under control. I trust you are not in too much distress.
I would love to see a viable legal alternative to my current setup
It's more than that, though, because your current setup in many cases should be legal.
How many dollars have been stolen from consumers by way of the politicians that have been bought to extend copyright on works that should have entered the public domain decades ago (copyright is supposed to be for the public benefit, which is why their government enacted it), and how does this compare to the money the industry claims is being stolen now? I think they may owe us a perpetually growing chunk of change, in fact.
And as a preemptive strike against the pedantic counterpoint, let's assume for these purposes that yes, selling somebody the Brooklyn Bridge is stealing from them.
I'm not certain I understand why a child needs to be taught not to play with something that looks like a gun. Sure, knives are in the kitchen, as is the stove. Where are these guns, within reach on every flat surface?
Exactly. I'd like to see those NFL motherfuckers pay some coin for "prohibiting" descriptions of games they broadcast.
Maybe in 1995.
I think Seinfeld, rather, had it right. "Limited to what, how many you can sell?"
Further, the number of sites with iPhone-specific versions is surprising. The potential audience is so large that those same developers making fancy flash websites also seem to be making fancy iPhone-tailored editions.
I'm sorry, but the photos look like an interracial gangbang to me.
If you have enough money you can pretty much do what you want. Money fuels politics.
The simplest answer is usually the correct one.
That's a good point. To bring in a car analogy, there are laws and standards regarding the vehicles permitted on the road. Would a Microsoft bigwig be championing this idea if it meant an NHTSA would be regulating their ass?
Sounds great actually. Coupled with the Justice Department discouraging monopoly abuse, we'd have the another regulator preventing MS from putting a house of knives on the road.
