Note that we are not discussing "I don't like change" but rather "this unintentional change is incompatible with my physical disability". Thus this is not a case of every change breaks someone's workflow.
Doctors in the Netherlands report that they have for the first time successfully replaced most of a human’s skull with a 3-D printed plastic one — and likely saved a woman's life in the process. The 23-hour surgery took place three months ago at University Medical Center Utrecht. The hospital announced details of the groundbreaking operation this week and said the patient, a 22-year-old woman, is doing just fine.
Vendor name, please? You are not doing anyone any favors by not mentioning who they are.
That sounds good. I don't want it to be _my_ project, even if I'm coding it. I come to
Can we get a list of things we want and don't want from the current and past slashdot incarnations? I'll draw up a plan and as people get interested I'll start assigning responsibilities and give access to the code. Everyone here knows how to work with Git, right?
1) Threaded commenting.

Unfortunately something like 15 years worth of usernames and comments, because although the comments are still owned by each respective user I doubt the database is.
User comments could probably be taken care of on a limited per-user basis by scraping the user's personal page:
If a user opens an account on slashdotan and then _logs_into_slashdot_ via slashdotan (i.e. gives slashdotan his

Nothing is decreasing in price. Please name ONE thing that is still the same quality as before but is lower in price.
Amazon Web Services.
Every few months I get an email that some aspect is lowering in price. Last week it was EBS: the price of storage just dropped from 10 cent/GiB/month to 5 cent/GiB/month. That, with always more and more features. The latest feature that has become widespread that I'm excited about is Virtual Private Cloud, where one can set up their entire virtual network infrastructure. VPC is free with EC2, which itself has a price decrease a few months ago.
Myself and my employer are _very_ happy AWS customers.
Ok, let's assume in this wondrous future, you are being driven (can't exactly call it driving if you're not in control) on some country roads and you encounter a very large bull standing in the middle of the road.
Do you really think it a good idea to deliberately get into a competition of "who's stronger with their horns" with a bull?
The rods are "safely subcritical" so long as the heavy elements (probably uranium in this case) remain where they should: suspended in the cast.
The term meltdown refers to the fuel rods actually melting. Gravity then differentiates the component materials: heavy stuff pools at the bottom. Once you have a pool of uranium there is danger of it becoming dense enough to become critical. There is even evidence of this having happened in nature.
If the core was "shut down," it would be in danger of meltdown how?
It would still be hot. Nuclear reactors don't cool down for weeks after they stop producing power. During this time they need outside electric to cool the core.
The same way that Fukushima's reactors did.
Nuclear reactors don't cool down for weeks after they stop producing power. During this time they need outside electric to cool the core. This particular sub was in dock, likely with the core shut down.

Possibly, but that would result in the entire sentence being repeated. VI mistakes usually have rather unique signatures
