And if his website weren't thoroughly slashdotted, I'd be checking out exactly what he stands for.
(NJ's governors tend to have earned their rep as things you wouldn't want stuck to the bottom of a shoe)

Comment How far back we talkin 'bout here? (Score 2) 315

If you're goin *all* the way back....

FidoNet, RIME, countless long dead BBS's & listservers, Hotmail pre-MS, Juno, NetZero, Netscape, usenet, yahoo...Multiples on *all* of them because I would forget or lose login info or whatever I wrote it on. (the tequila had nothing to do with...yeah right)

Then the message boards one the web got really going?

Not a clue, but I can remember the phrase "Howard Karten's Kim Chee recipe"

Insufficient memory to continue, operation halted.

Comment Just a thought (Score 1) 1173

Remember, these are the same things that even New Jersey finally woke up and declared a bad idea.

Even the (in)famous Airport circle outside of Atlantic City is going away. The diminutive Rt40/Pole Tavern circle is still...around, as is the ever entertaining Red Lion circle. Watching the Somers Point circle "fade" away along with the 30's era bridge into Ocean City has been an amazing example of gov't waste in action.

Comment EQ2 (Score 1) 329

Yep, let's not forget building up a "defining" game/userbase w/EQ and then trying to divide it (or whatever that was) with EQ2.

Then again, it did fit in with the attitude of "the user/customer is the enemy" which they seemed to have finely honed over the years.


The Perfect Way To Slice a Pizza 282

iamapizza writes "New Scientist reports on the quest of two math boffins for the perfect way to slice a pizza. It's an interesting and in-depth article; 'The problem that bothered them was this. Suppose the harried waiter cuts the pizza off-center, but with all the edge-to-edge cuts crossing at a single point, and with the same angle between adjacent cuts. The off-center cuts mean the slices will not all be the same size, so if two people take turns to take neighboring slices, will they get equal shares by the time they have gone right round the pizza — and if not, who will get more?' This is useful, of course, if you're familiar with the concept of 'sharing' a pizza."
