Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
Where is the 2006 I was promised? I have never ridden a flying car, my workplace is not on the Moon, not that it matters much, since I have no rocket pack. I have to wear these stupid clothes made out of cloth instead of foil. Oh yeah, and I had to eat my food off a plate using a fork and a knife, like some idiot, when I should be popping pills for lunch.
The third millennium has so far been a huge rip off.
PS3 fanboy + Sony's embarassing E3 press conference + PS3's price + GTA4 on the Xbox 360 in October = Xbox 360 fanboy.
I'm so there.
Edit: Seriously Sony, grow a pair. I would have respected you so much more if you hadn't caved to some-guys-on-the-internet's mockery of your "batarang" controller and if you hadn't tacked on those stupid gyros on the controller.
God damn, I'm getting internet rage because of your stupidity.
Gameplay is a buzzword. Any "true gamer" always values gameplay over graphics. Or rather: "True gamers" insist that modern and/or popular games games focus on graphics over gameplay. God forbid a popular game having really good graphics!
Just go and see http://pimpmysnack.com.
And I'm on a diet. Damn.
One thing I hate is people using "optional" plurals in programs.
The reasoning must be in the lines of:
Yeah, I'm on vacation for 1 week. My first in who knows how long.
Anyway, you know what I'm going to do on my vacation? Absolutely nothing! I'm going to sleep late and stay up playing Civ 4 and Metroid Prime 2 as long as I fucking want! You can keep your skiing holidays in Ass-pen or trips to spas. I do not want any stress during my vacation, especially from travel arrangements.
So a big neener neener to any of you who are reading this at work (hey, beats actually working).
So you have a method, say "getMessage()". Do you really think that writing a comment that says "gets message." adds any information?
Especially in languages like PHP where the parameters and return values can be fucking anything you decided to shit out of your fingers?
First of all: The game looks promising. I've played maybe 2 or 3 hours, and so far the game looks very GTA3-ish. This is a good thing if you liked GTA 3 and are not bored by the whole GTA game concept by now.
It fucking rocks.
Finally a game worth buying for Nintendo DS. Yes, it has some touch screen gimmicks, like you can select stuff from menus using a stylus (where the choices are maybe 8 pixels high), drawing magical seals to finish off bosses and destroying some blocks after you get the appropriate skill, but the main gameplay is old-school.
If you think Slashdot looks a little bit "off" today, check out the source. CSS, baby!
Welcome to the year 1998, Slashdot!
This page http://www.xitimonitor.com/etudes/equipement7.asp has a picture that shows Firefox's market share in Finland is 30.5%. French and Hungarians are second and third, with 24.4% and 22.6% shares for FF.
I've made this handy script to delete the all kinds of unnecessary files from under each user's personal directory in Windows: http://koti.mbnet.fi/wheany/deltemp.cmd.
It deletes the caches of IE, Opera and Firefox, user-specific temp-folder, Windows's temp-folder and prefetch-folder and empties the recycling bins on the first four drives.
