More than anyone else, Judith Merril probably did more to get NY publishers to take genre fiction seriously.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
I didn't realize there was a Linux port of this -- can't wait to try it as everything I've tried to date has been less than desirable in terms of complete, usable functionality that I'd expect of a mature application.
Is it just me or should anyone making more than a million a year from online sales not be exempt from taxation? Do CEOs like John Donahoe believe that people who make more than a mil/year are somehow poor or middle class? That guy's an asshole.
What started as Dynamically Loaded Zones has now morphed in to Response Policy Zones which are useful for sinkholing malware domains by feeding multiple sources. This is more effective than trying to manage all your clients by forcing Adblock & subscriptions to malware filters and has the added bonus of working with all browsers & apps regardless of OS or device. A good write up may be found here.
We have several MVNOs and this list on Wikipedia appears to be comprehensive.
Has anyone bothered to ask Sir Mix-A-Lot and Def American whether Glee or Coulton have a license to publish a cover version of their song? Do some research, people.
I'll second this -- the Lightweight X11 Desktop Environment is probably the only unified desktop that's both light on resources (hence its name) and easy to use for both beginners and power users. I think its only drawback re Ubuntu in general is that it tends to be a bit slow to keep up with major releases. But if you want cutting edge, there's always the Debian LXDE install CD -- and if you choose the stable installer and select advanced options it will let you choose testing or unstable as your distro.
Even though others had preceded it in the first person real time RPG genre, DM was best in its class for many years to come because it had some substance to its story despite its genre. Black Crypt and Eye of the Beholder were good efforts as well but BC was probably the better of the two.
But the number one requested feature has been a way to block the ads that assault us all in the 'real world' — such as billboards, TV commercials, and magazine ads. Unfortunately, AdBlock hasn't been available outside the browser window.
Until today. Introducing the beta version of AdBlock Freedom: augmented reality eyewear that detects and removes ads from the world in realtime."

It might be worth reading through NetApp's original ZFS patent lawsuit vs Sun before making wild speculations. It seems to me that they are now trying to sue other, smaller companies after their original attempt to sue Sun had failed.
"The acquisition of the sun transforms the IT industry, combining best-in-class enterprise software and mission-critical computing systems," said Oracle CEO Larry Ellison. "Oracle will be the only company that can engineer an integrated system and power it indefinitely by harnessing the seemingly infinite power of our nearest star. Our customers benefit as their power bills and systems integration costs go down while system performance, reliability and security go up. We can't imagine a better perimeter security appliance than one with a surface temperature of 5,778 degrees Kelvin. We are also on the verge of announcing a deal whereby our entire staff will be entitled to a free lifetime supply of sunscreen lotion."
Something like this was done with Chex Quest which was a total conversion of Doom -- but instead of killing the NPCs, the main character's weapon merely teleports them to another dimension.
As for knocking anyone doing total conversions or mods of any kind, it's not exactly child's play. However, you're certainly welcome to download the idTech 3 source and show us how it's done. Keep in mind, too, that many game developers over the years began their careers in the industry by deconstructing or modding their favorite games.
