Can you pay a homeopath with a stack of paper with one dollar stuck in there somewhere?

Only seems right.

you don't actually leave the dollar in there. you dump a hundred slips of paper and one dollar bill into a jar bang it on the table a few times. then you dump it all out, put one of the treated slips and a hundred fresh ones into the jar and bang it... repeat 10 times and that's a jar of 10C homeopathic dollar bills. you'd have to ask a homeopath what the actual value of each of those bills is.


Roku Finally Gets a 2D Menu System 80

DeviceGuru writes "Many of us have griped for years about Roku's retro one-dimensional user interface. Finally, in conjunction with the release of the new Roku 3 model, the Linux-based media streaming player is getting a two-dimensional facelift, making it quicker and easier to access favorite channels and find new ones. Current Roku users, who will now begin suffering from UI-envy, will be glad to learn that Roku plans to push out a firmware update next month to many earlier models, including the Roku LT, Roku HD (model 2500R), Roku 2 HD, Roku 2 XD, Roku 2 XS, and Roku Streaming Stick. A short demo of the new 2D Roku menu system is available in this YouTube video."

+ - College Police: Using Linux is suspicious behavior->

Submitted by FutureDomain
FutureDomain (1073116) writes "The Boston College Campus Police have seized the electronics of a computer science student for allegedly sending an email outing another student. The probable cause? The search warrant application states that he is "a computer science major" and he uses "two different operating systems for hiding his illegal activity. One is the regular B.C. operating system and the other is a black screen with white font which he uses prompt commands on." The EFF is currently representing him."
