I caved in and paid for a subscription to slashdot.

I try to sooth myself by thinking it's supporting the community. The real reason was to block ads.

Well, make that one ad, specifically.

I can't be the only one who thinks the OSDN personals ad is just insane. I mean, if one could actually score the hot-young-beautiful woman-with-the-peek-a-boo-hairstyle in the oversized turtleneck that mocks me everytime I see her online, using a computer, don't you think slashdot would have page views of approximately zero?

Anyway, I got tired of being bashed in the head by that chick every page view, reminded of the beautiful women I've seldom (but fortunately not never) dated.

So I paid for the subscription.

Never underestimate the motivational power of something that reminds a nerd of his lack of love life.

Submission Text Formatting Tips

We support a small subset of HTML, namely these tags:

  • br
  • a
  • ol
  • ul
  • li
  • dl
  • dt
  • dd
  • em
  • strong
  • tt
  • blockquote
  • div
  • quote

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

<ecode>    while(1) { do_something(); } </ecode>
