This seems to be a partial mirror. I thought I saw a collection posted to /. back when Mark first announced his assimilation, perhaps someone can dig it up from the /. archive? It is possible the Shrock "bt" collection is that collection.


Submission + - Mars - holes in surface discovered

See that dark spot in the middle of the picture? It seems to be a hole, in an otherwise smooth landscape of lava. It isn't an impact crater because it lacks a raised rim or ejecta. Light from the Sun must be getting down there, but it's so deep that none of it is bouncing back out. It's just a dark hole."

Submission + - MSFT's SUSE coupons have no expire date

mw13068 writes: In a recent article in the Seattle Post Intelligencer FSF General Council Eben Moglen points out: "The [Microsoft SUSE] coupons have no expiration date, and Microsoft can be sure that some coupons will be turned into Novell in return for software after the effective date of GPL 3. Once that has happened, patent defenses will, under the license, have moved out into the broad community and be available to anybody who Microsoft should ever sue for infringement."

Groklaw is also covering the story in it's inimitable way.

Submission + - Open-source replica of KIM-1 trainer

An anonymous reader writes: Anyone besides me remember Mos Tech's KIM-1 6502 trainer? It was quite the innovation back in 1975, and set the stage for computers like the Commodore Pet and Apple 1/II. There's going to be a KIM-1 replica kit this summer for 99 bucks, from the same guy who made Apple 1 and Altair kits in the past. Cool stuff.
