I usually get 15, I got 5 twice in a row a while back but that's abnormal.

I think it has to do with the number of comments modded up, as well as the amount of moderation. Starting with +2 karma bonus, I can only get 3 up-mods, but with +1 logged in bonus I can get +4 for a total of 5.

If I'm in an insightful mood I usually have 2 or 3 comments at +3 (plus karma) at the same time, and 15 mod points. When I had only 5 mod points, I think I just had 1 or two comments at +1 (with karma to make +3).

Hey, screw this debate, isn't the slashdot code open source? I'm not looking, but if you want to know I'm sure that would help more than nerd fights. Don't get me wrong I like nerd fights, but usually when there's something to debate. Objective code isn't debatable! Except for Objective-C, lots of people object to it, hence the name. Right? I'm confused now, what was the question?

I just haven't found your message yet. I am starting with messages that are sent in response to my non-murder-endorsing messages, or messages that were in those same discussions. If I find a message from you endorsing or calling for murder, you will be added to the list.

And as we all know, the slashdot journal entries can be modified for a very long time...

Personally, I feel that if we're going to colonize the moon (or Mars), that responsibility should not be put in the hands of NASA, the USA, or any other hypercapitalist nation for that matter. What these bean counters love to ignore is that, once we hit space, money/wealth will quickly become irrelevant. I don't know about you, but I can't picture debt collectors chasing me through the galaxy so some dirty banker can buy a diamond-encrusted iPad.


Slashdot's Disagree Mail Screenshot-sm 126

Usually persistence is an admirable quality. There comes a time however when you reach that fine line between endeavoring to persevere, and drunk dialing your ex-girlfriend. The mail this week is from people who don't know when to say when. You have to admire their determination and feel a little bit bad that they don't have anything else to do. Read below to see how many times someone can click send in a day.
It's funny.  Laugh.

Submission + - Guy Loses 14.6 Pounds Sitting In Front Of Computer (consumerist.com)

Foy Savas writes: "Ben Popken just did something we all wish we could: he lost nearly 15 pounds in front of his computer. Well, not exactly. Armed with a gym membership and Traineo's online health and fitness tracking software, Ben set off to put off what blogging had helped him put on. Finally smarter might also soon mean fitter. Oh, and by the way, Traineo's extensive physical activity logging can help us track the benefits. *wink, wink*"
