Obiwan Kenobi writes "I know we've done LEGO links to death, but The Brick Apple is in a class all by itself. Between the 5 foot tall Empire State Building, the 50,000 piece Greenwich village or perhaps the best of all: the World Trade Center, from which this quote was taken: 'Actually, sticking together all those little 1x1 and 1x2 pieces would get VERY tedious, and after a while they would really hurt my thumbs. Each floor had over 500 little 1x1 and 1x2 pieces.' Wow."

LoneIguana (681297) | more than 10 years ago | (#7652327)

Why dosen't slashdot mirror these pages. I know it has been suggested before, but here is a novel? approach: Slashdot could cache the page before release, then after a story is released it could ping the server every minute or so to see if it has gone down. If it has, then the cached page could be brought up and people would still have access, if the server comes back up the cache would be removed. The caches would also be purged after a couple days or so, when the main wave has passed.

Re:Slashdotted already... (5, Informative)

NightSpots (682462) | more than 10 years ago | (#7652393)

First, there's copyright and common-carrier issues. If you cache pages, you become responsible for their content. Google is realizing this as they get served for DMCA removal requests.

Second, it's not something a 'ping' will help. It's usually a db / apache tuning issue, where there's too many connections. The server's alive, it just can't connect to the db, or there aren't enough apache processes. To find these types of errors, you'd have to read the responses and grep for errors. This becomes non-trivial, and more often than not, more trouble than its worth given (1).

What if slashdot doesn't have enough bandwidth to host these image-filled pages? They would be much larger than the normal story/comment page views, and we wouldn't want to risk slashdotting slashdot. Even if there is enough bandwidth available, I doubt it's all free.

Not that easy... (1)

You'd have copyright and other legal issues to deal with. You can't mirror a page without permission from the original source.

Re:Not that easy... (3, Insightful)

Anonymous Coward | more than 10 years ago | (#7652439)

Actually, they can under the DMCA (yea, they actually did one thing right with the DMCA). Personally, I wish more ISPs, especially the really large ones, just cached all web requests. With a good tree structure, you'd be able to cache a lot of the commonly accessed internet with squid. Then slashdotting and most DoS attacks wouldn't work (at least not against their target). The only major except is dealing with caching dynamic content. The real answer to that is a combination of don't do dynamic content (ie, stick parts of it in javascript/java or use a dynamic generation cache where it doesn't have to be flushed even remotely often) and for things that really need dynamic content (ssl store fronts, web servers, etc) is for some large company (say Yahoo) to have multiple secure front ends to do the transactions for you so there isn't any one main server to DoS. Of course, the latter one isn't always doable (or even preferable), but then there's no real other solution.

Lego and employment (5, Interesting)

xactoguy (555443) | more than 10 years ago | (#7652311)

Although something like this may seem stupid or pointless at first, if I was an employer, the fact that someone had actually completed something like this would be a big point towards me hiring them. Something like this not only takes some serious drive and commitment to actually bring to completion, but especially with some of the larger models, there had to be some serious planning going into them, both excellent thigns to look for... and on a complete other note, I'm not an employer, lego rocks, and these are some serious awesome lego creations... wish that I had enough commitment to make something even a tenth as big as some of those :D

Not a commitment issue so much as a money one. :p

LEGO bricks are not cheap, doing things like this (and not recycling the peices into other projects) has to be one of the more expensive hobbies you could pick.

A 2 second google search reported a price of $40 for a box of 500 bricks, and it was one of those random color/piece collection. $40 times the 100+ floors the WTC had?

That's a lot of disposable income.

So if you point to a cached page that the server doesn't have images for, you won't get them.

Would you break the Lego WTC? (5, Funny)

Aqua OS X (458522) | more than 10 years ago | (#7652368)

When I was a kid I used to love to build giant Lego forts and smash them with lego vehicles. They were one of the few toys you could break and put back together. My Lego men always lived in a state of destruction and war, or reconstruction.

If I had a giant lego WTC that would seriously mess with me. On one shoulder, a little Lego devil would say "toss a Lego plane into that, you can easily put it back together." And on my other shoulder a little Lego angel would say "Are you f**king kidding me?!"

Seriously people, lighten up. Sure, 9/11 was awful for everyone, and we do need to have respect for those that died and those that lost those they loved. But I and everyone *I* know is pretty tired of the whole world going stoic and stony-eyed anytime someone so much as mentions the events or the WTC. We need to be able to recognize events, learn from them, laugh at them (respectfully, of course) when applicable, and move on. This is a case where it is slightly amusing--I was most amused by the concept of little Lego Angels and Devils on the shoulders.

I've always loved them. I'm a college student now and STILL have a huge box under my bed. But what I've always wanted was legos that could be remote controlled. Mindstorms has come a long way with this. But what I want is for the little figures to move around. And I want technology that makes it so my little lego battlemechs can actually fire missiles in an attempt to hit the lego jets that my friend would be flying via remote control.

Estes model rocket engines.... 1/2A or whatever the hell they were, would make a decent basis for a Lego SAM. As for a jet, I doubt it, but maybe a Lego airframe with a regular RC plane motor. The technology is here, all that is missing is the creative application of said technology.

The terrorists have already won :( (3, Funny)

Not to knock this impressive project, but I just have to say that when you find yourself putting together thousans of 1x1/1x2 pieces, you should ask yourself if there maybe isn't a better way.

This brings to mind one question... (5, Funny)
