it's really not a good idea to make reading slashdot obnoxious to readers... it has already been going downhill, and fast, recently. They really shouldn't make it a pain in the ass to read. It isn't funny, it's obnoxious. Now you get to ROT13 unencrypt the latest slashvertisements and 10 day old news!

Must be a better News for Nerds out there. Guess I'll go take a look.

Seriously. Does anyone have suggestions? I've been on /. so long (not as long as the OP, but still) I don't even know where else to look for News for Nerds. /.bicurious is the last straw for many of us.

I use dream host... "unlimited space and traffic" they really mean don't go crazy and try to host a google.com mirror off of it. Its pretty cheap, I pay $8 a month. You can run cron jobs, mysql databases, etc. I've been happy with it. I know it is karma/referral whoring but you can use my referral code and get a free domain registration: FOLLOWTHEHORIZON (if you already have a domain just use DREAMBUCKS for $50 off your first year). http://www.dreamhost.com/r.cgi?303747

Climate May Be Less Sensitive To CO2 Than Previously Thought 413

a_hanso writes "A new study suggests that the effects of rising levels of carbon dioxide on temperature may be less significant than previously thought. 'The new models predict that given a doubling in CO2 levels from pre-industrial levels, the Earth's surface temperatures will rise by 1.7 to 2.6 degrees C. That is a much tighter range than suggested by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change's 2007 report, which suggested a rise of between 2 to 4.5 degrees C."

Find me a Linux distro that supports 10 year old versions, on the desktop.

These cowboys might I guess....

I love that the link goes to a 404 page... the fact is that MS is discontinuing support for a 10 year old version of an OS. No one else to my knowledge supports an OS as old as XP at the level Microsoft has since Vista and 7 were released. Don't get me wrong, I'll use RHEL or Ubuntu any day over XP or 7 for that matter... but credit is due when credit is due.
