Slashdot's always been a kind of symbol for me. I'm a dedicated Linuxian, only using Windows "under duress". I've seen much of Slashdot's growth and popularization. I think about it at times - what it means, how it functions, does the system really work, if not, why not. If my life had taken just a slightly different turn, I might in fact have been an "editor" when the YRO section started.Slashdot's always been a kind of symbol for me.

Submission Text Formatting Tips

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

  • b
  • i
  • p
  • br
  • a
  • ol
  • ul
  • li
  • dl
  • dt
  • dd
  • em
  • strong
  • tt
  • blockquote
  • div
  • quote
  • ecode

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

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