Maybe I'm just not a Journal writing person. Over three months down the track since my first journal entry, and only now do I add a second.

It's not as if I have anything particuarly insightful to say at the moment, but I just like the idea of actually using the resources that have been provided.

One thing that strikes me about Slashdot, though, is the general cynicism of the reader base ... _about_ their fellow readers! It seems that any post that degrades the Slashdot community as thoughtless posters, seems to be moderated up quite rapidly. The old "you're new to Slashdot" comment never seems to fail to get a few points.

Yeah, maybe it's just tongue in cheek, but I think there's a current of serious cynicism underlying the comments. Which is a shame, really, as I find most comments to be reasonable. OK, the moderation system helps definitely, but still the general impression I get of the Slashdot community, is that they're a bunch of pretty cluey people. Just what I'd expect for a website dedicated to "News for Nerds".

  • ul
  • li
  • dl

"ecode" can be used for code snippets, for example:
