Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
Scan is the first QR code scanner I installed on my iPad and later on my iPhone. There is nothing to change any options.
I look again: There's just the History
ARGHL! THERE IT IS! The settings are hidden on the history page!? WTF?
As for RedLaser: I think I've avoided it because of the company name "eBay Inc."
Because people still insist in using their old and silly date format everywhere. dd.mm.yy, dd/mm/yy, mm/dd/yy.
There's an international format called ISO 8601, which is accepted in almost every country around the world. yyyy-mm-dd with 4 digits for the year.
If such a date format would be common, nobody would even think about using only 2 digits (or less) to save a date. And no, 2010 wouldn't be interpreted as 2016. It would be wrong from the very beginning if somebody wants to interpret a BCD number as a hex number.
Implementation of the ISO 8601 Standard Around The World, including Europe, Germany, USA.
Please keep your mythological beliefs to yourself.
Tell that to all the Pastafarians on Slashdot who talk about Internet piracy in a climate change story or vice versa.
Not only is there nothing wrong with linear story lines, some of us actual prefer them. I hate those vast expansive worlds where you can just run around doing anything. I got flustered and overwhelmed when I get near the 25 quest limit in WoW, for example.
Part of the "entertainment" aspect (for me at least) is playing a game like watching a movie or reading a book...you get to unveil the author's vision...not make your own. Some people want to make their own art -- some of us like discovering the artistry of others.
I know a lot of people use the term "evolutionary" as a synonym for "gradual" or "slow" but when I think of evolution, I think of the specific process of mutations and reproduction by which a population changes over time. Unless there's something new about galaxies I've never heard of, I don't understand why the term "evolutionary" is the best word to describe the development of the early universe. (Or anything at astronomical scales that I can think of.)
