+1 for the ReadyNAS. Thing just works. I have a ReadyNAS duo. I can set up all that stuff myself (NFS, CIFS, etc), but the ReadyNAS just does it. Most of the time I forget it's there. Plus, it can serve via DLNA.
Unfortunately, you can look to the NRA's recent speech on Sandy Hook to see what the GP is getting at. Not sure what they were thinking there, but it seems like they'd be happy to throw the 1st and maybe 4th and 5th out the window. Disappointing to me as an NRA member.
I have a Galaxy Note II, and I can even read and annotate papers with that, albeit with some panning around. If I were still an academic reading papers all the time I'd buy a Note 10.1 tablet immediately. It's fantastic for that and note-taking.
Thanks, I don't want to make money from this. I want better internet service for myself and my community. I'm willing to work at it in order for that to happen, since certainly nobody else is doing it.

Currently, there are no last-mile providers in my area, and the regional project only considers itself a middle-mile provider, and will only provide service to last-mile providers. Assuming this will not be my day job, that the local populace is rather poor, and that because of the hills, line-of-sight service will be difficult, how could I set myself up as an ISP? I have considered WiFi mesh networking, and even running wires on the power/telephone polls, but the required licensing and other issues are foreign to me. What would you do?"
An anonymous reader writes: I've just moved my business operations to a new company and thought it made perfect sense to inform my contacts about it before deactivating or deleting my skype account after a few years. The core of my new activity is developing a competitor to the skype protocol so being associated with their brand might potentially harm my new endeavors. So I started to browse around but to my surprise there's NO way as their support page clearly explains: https://support.skype.com/en/faq/FA142/can-i-delete-my-skype-account where they explain that "unfortunately" you can't. Now, that word "unfortunately" sounds more like mockery to me than anything else and how is it even possible they can lawfully get away with it? Would resort to legal action a viable option? I want and need to get out of their system / search directory. What is a slashdotter supposed to do here?

Knowing Slashdot, many of you probably fit the bill. So, if you'd like to try to get into the beta, go fill out the survey! You will need a Steam account to do so."
