Submission + - Guinness names Call of Duty: Black Ops #1 video game ending of all time (vinesaucevidya.com)

Shikaku writes: "The famous Guinness Book of World Records recently conducted some research to determine the top 50 video game endings of all time. On the list were games such as Portal 2, Kingdom Hearts, and “Half-Life: Episode Tow [sic]“, none of which topped the chart. We’re all used to seeing Gamespot and IGN coming up with lists like this that survey hundreds of thousands of people online over the course of a month or more, but Guinness released this list after tallying the votes of just 13,519 “fans of gaming”. Guinness is well known and regarded as the official source on many world statistics, but did they devote enough time and effort into this list to get an accurate idea of how gamers really feel?"

Submission + - White House wants to make IP infringement a felony (cnet.com) 2

Shikaku writes: "The White House today proposed sweeping revisions to U.S. copyright law, including making "illegal streaming" of audio or video a federal felony and allowing FBI agents to wiretap suspected infringers.

In a 20-page white paper (PDF), the Obama administration called on the U.S. Congress to fix "deficiencies that could hinder enforcement" of intellectual property laws."

Programming

Submission + - Example code for making Programming Rosetta Stone? (google.com) 1

Shikaku writes: I was wondering if there is some projects that can be done to being learning new programming languages: instead of only using helloworld.c and porting it. This would be projects that would be easy to finish in a programming language one is proficient in.
I've thought of programming things like Fibonacci sequences, sorts and red/black trees, but I was wondering if there's something else that Slashdot can come up with. I am doing this to give myself a better resume. I am currently in college, without any work programming experience.
Thanks!
