Submission + - Lynn Margulis has died (nytimes.com)

NotSoHeavyD3 writes: I didn't see anything but I was just recently reading that biologist Lynn Margulis died recently. (To be honest I know her more as the widow of Carl Sagan than anything else)

Submission + - Avast having problems with false positives

NotSoHeavyD3 writes: So just today Avast anti-virus is going nuts claiming I have win32:delf-mzg [trj] infecting pretty much everything. I should have googled it first before going nuts scanning everything but it looks like this is actually a false positive that pretty much cripples my machine. At this point apparently there isn't much to do but disable avast and wait for a fix to come out. Anyway hopefully this can prevent other Slashdot'ers from trying to clean out their entire machine of viruses that don't actually exist.

Submission + - Youtube not worth the cost? (newsweek.com) 1

NotSoHeavyD3 writes: So I use youtube all the time all time. However I can see the point, having a site with those requirements is probably a major cost. Is it right? Is youtube not worth the money given how much it must cost to run it?
