SourceForge, the code repository site owned by Slashdot Media, has apparently seized control of the account hosting GIMP for Windows on the service, according to e-mails and discussions amongst members of the GIMP community—locking out GIMP's lead Windows developer. And now anyone downloading the Windows version of the open source image editing tool from SourceForge gets the software wrapped in an installer replete with advertisements.

Do you, with non neglible cognitive ability, not realise people, kids, or emergency personnel can walk into an area where a car has apparently paused to let them through? And that technology that replaces human function better behave somewhat 'human' ?
Ignore this pedant. Thanks for the interesting grandparent post.

Not really - you've just become richer
"American made" did mean quality, right up until Japanese cars and electronics redefined the term.
Hmm... How about a floating-yet-submerged pipeline?
Water flowing through plastic tubes anchored offshore
It could start small -- say two 12 inch pipes, then more, or larger, pipelines added once the concept was proved.
Why does this work? For one thing, eminent-domain, right-of-way issues pretty much go away. And the problem of structural support turns into keeping pipeline sections from _rising_, rather than falling (caused by the natural bouyancy of the pipeline and its contents)
First of all none of the signatories are from Columbia university (i.e. none of the signatories are his colleagues)
Secondly, many of the 'distinguished' signatories are in cahoots with the GMO industry -- including one that was earlier a shill for the tobacco industry. See this post for details: http://science.slashdot.org/co...
You may not like Dr. Oz, but beware - this enemy of your enemy is not your friend.
Ditto. Thanks for this nbauman!
(This is going to rollback my many mods here, but its worth it)
Thank you - this is very interesting to me.
Haha - you can't see the wood for the trees! (this idiom has a double meaning here)
See the tree? The wood is almost all 'fixed' carbon.
And when it dies, a tree doesn't go 'poof' in a cloud of CO2. Instead, organic matter gets trapped in the ground and new topsoil is created (again, mostly carbon).
Recall a well tended urban 'nature strip' in an older suburb (a century or more)? Typically, the strip tends to 'pops out' from its concrete lining. That's a small version of the same effect.
Some interesting info I just came across: http://managingwholes.com/new-...
Was it this one?
Instead of having airlines staff the flight deck back up again to previous levels (i.e. reinstating the flight engineer, or adding a third pilot), cue the snake-oil salesmen with the same pitch - irresistible to airlines - which got us into this mess.
"Shame about that last crash...
"You know, you _CAN_ increase safety _AND_ lower costs
"How? Well, for starters, one less pilot on the flight deck...
When a plane crashes and kills someone, the pilot usually dies.
When a drone kills someone on the ground,the only imapct to operator is via his chart of accounts!
Symmetry has its benefits.
