A very popular glitch was to hold the reset button while turning the Atari 2600 console with Space Invaders in it. It gave your single-player tank a double-shot. I'm no longer convinced it was unintentional.
Mountain King (originally by Imagic)
There was an accidental "super jump" in the game. If you timed a jump just right, by releasing the stick for a split-second and then hit "up" again, the man would make a half-jump followed by a jump that would fly up into the air until it hit something. This caused the game to move into ROM and RAM addresses creating a "sky world" to explore.
On Leaderboards in general, "rollover glitches abound." Mario Kart on the Wii had rollover glitches to the timer, making them patch the game and reset the leaderboards. I noticed the more recent "Cuboid" on PSN has the same problem! Both the number of moves and the timer rollover to zero making it possible that somebody willing to make 1000 moves and wait 99:99 minutes (or whatever the maxes are) to get the top leaderboard position.
A few months ago I ran a Tor relay node with no exits for anonymized web traffic. Apparently as a result of being on the Tor directory listing, Slashdot admins decided to ban my home IP from being able to login. Because my cookie has been valid since then, I didn't notice until a few weeks ago when it got wiped. I'm now banned from my primary IP address, so when my cookie expires I am no longer able to login.
Scientists claim that women are more of "right-brain" thinkers. That's the imaginative and holistic side of the brain
You misspelled readers of fad psychology colums in cosmo. And get with the times, it's the men who are portrayed as the irrational romantics now, which would make them the "right-brainers".
When I review my old, modded-up posts, I realize that some people mod up just about anything. I guess it all balances.
Once again, I put in a comment that applied directly to the story without being redundant. I left it at the modest "2" and it adds interest to the story. Yet, someone who obviously didn't RTFA or didn't read my comment completely modded me down. This is why I turned off moderator points for myself.
My Comment was incredibly unfairly moderated down. It just goes to show you that some peer moderation is completely worthless. I got a -1 for "Redundant," even though it neither copied the article nor copied anyone else. It couldn't be redundant, it's the first non-trivial post! As for the -1 Troll, I'm not sure how that happened, either, because I made and extremely valid point that the article was just plain wrong.
Is slashdot competing with Blogger now? Hmmm.
