Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
People nitpick the submissions and never complement the good ones.
Speaking of nitpicking, it is "compliment". If we were "complementing" the good ones, we would be adding to the submissions rather than merely commenting on their inadequacies.
Since this operator exists in C/C++, Java and Perl at least, it's hardly obscure
It's called the ternary operator.
You need citations for Congressional use of the "power of the purse"? Really?
Here in the United States, the term Power of the Purse refers to relationship between Legislative and Executive branches of the same government.
The relationship discussed in this sub-thread is between different governments: Federal vs. local ones...
An excellent example is that of the federally mandated minimum drinking age: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/N...
Briefly, Congress threatened to cut specific funding to states unless they followed the federal government's leadership in setting the drinking age at 21. This despite Congress having no direct authority in the Constitution to make the states obey them. It's a pretty clear-cut case of federal overreach.

After pissing around for half an hour with bios settings, I finally managed to get it to get farther than the grub bootloader. Things seem to work, but KDE crashes randomly, Cinnamon and Unity don't remember window locations and have their own oddities. None of them let me control screen backlighting, even after trying all the 'hacks' posted around the net.
Then I find out that video performs even worse with the open source Intel video drivers.
I know this won't help you now, but in the future you should know that Lenovo Thinkpads have some of the best out of the box linux support I have ever seen. All the little details work seamlessly and effortlessly.
Can we do the same for Classic?
I'm a nerd. I read. I'm the one in the museum ignoring the display and reading the description. I want text, easily accessible, clearly laid out, and plenty of it. I'll pay to keep the UI I know and love.
The Beta has none of those characteristics. The Beta site is repellent, unusable, and unneeded. I won't use it, and if ``Classic'' goes away, I won't visit
How much do you actually receive in revenue for each user? I suspect I'll match it to keep the status quo. Ask us what it's worth to us. I'd certainly pay $1/month, and would think about $5/month. I bet that I'm not alone."
