He said death rate. Not casualties. Apples and Oranges. And War Cassualities could include American troops, Civilians, enemies, enemy combatants, or whatever they are called this week.

Introducing the Slashdot Firehose 320 320

Logged in users have noticed for some time the request to drink from the Slashdot Firehose. Well now we're ready to start having everybody test it out. It's partially a collaborative news system, partially a redesigned & dynamic next-generation Slashdot index. It's got a lot of really cool features, and a lot of equally annoying new problems for us to find and fix for the next few weeks. I've attached a rough draft of the FAQ to the end of this article. A quick read of it will probably answer most questions from how it works, what all the color codes mean, to what we intend to do with it.

"Virtual" means never knowing where your next byte is coming from.
