Comment Re:Ban libraries.... (Score 0) 276

Some of the comments depend upon where you are

Libraries are not free. They are, at best, pre-paid by local taxes. The build, maintenance and staff yes. In some countries publishers have to give free (yes 100% free, no cost etc..) copies of books to libraries.

You could start by not saying that public libraries are free.

may want to check my comments. I NEVER mentioned "public libraries" - there are many types of libraries (company, private, academic,etc..) as well as public.

Apparently missing this question

Q) If you have a website, and have a Geek test, and this gets slashdotted, what sort of increase in traffic would you expect, and how would you cope.

I cannot get to the quiz!

Submission + - Terry Pratchett has early onset Alzheimer's

JaJ_D writes: According to Paul Kidby's website, Terry Pratchet has been diagonsed with early onset Alzheimer's.

From the site:

would have liked to keep this one quiet for a little while, but because of upcoming conventions and of course the need to keep my publishers informed, it seems to me unfair to withhold the news. I have been diagnosed with a very rare form of early onset Alzheimer's, which lay behind this year's phantom "stroke".

Submission + - Largest off shore wind farm to be built in UK

JaJ_D writes: Following the recent coverage on slashdot on the subject of global warming (and other issues like renuable energy), there are plans to build the worlds largest off shore Wind Farm off the coast of North Devon .

Currently the worlds largest off shore wind farm (London Array, which should generate enough energy to power a quarter of the homes in Greater London) is being constructed and the company who was initial involved in the London Array (Farm Energy) is also involved in this project.

According to the report "....it could be powering more than 1,000,000 homes by 2018", which would be enough to power all the homes in Devon (as well as some in Cornwall).
