Recently, slashdot editor [slashdot.org] CowboyNeal [cowboyneal.org] was qouted as saying on his weblog [cowboyneal.org] that he is "convinced that gay niggers should bind together in some sort of organization."

This recent outburst of racism and fascism has hammered the last nail in the coffin. CowboyNeal [cmdrtaco.net] is, beyond a shadow of doubt, a member of the infamous troll organization, GNAA [nero-online.org] (GAY NIGGER ASSOCIATION OF AMERICA).

Please join the legitimate users of slashdot on our campaign to rid Slashdot of CowboyNeal. Please email the NAACP and let them know that you want CowboyNeal and the GNAA banned from Slashdot.

Feeding the trolls only encourages them. Perhaps something like a 'super offensive' troll rating should be introduced so when modded to the extent a post was a 'super troll' the IP address would be logged somewhere publically available, that way even ACs wouldn't get around it.

Just a thought.

Getting slow ALREADY! REPOST: (-1, Redundant)

James A. C. Joyce (733782) | more than 10 years ago | (#7854645)


Earth changes its spin, baffles scientists



Thursday, January 1, 2004 Posted: 10:16 AM EST (1516 GMT)



BOULDER, Colorado (AP) -- In a phenomenon that has scientists puzzled, the Earth is right on schedule for a fifth straight year.


Experts agree that the rate at which the Earth travels through space has slowed ever so slightly for millennia. To make the world's official time agree with where the Earth actually is in space, scientists in 1972 started adding an extra "leap second" on the last day of the year.

For 28 years, scientists repeated the procedure. But in 1999, they discovered the Earth was no longer lagging behind.

At the National Institute for Science and Technology in Boulder, spokesman Fred McGehan said most scientists agree the Earth's orbit around the sun has been gradually slowing for millennia. But he said they don't have a good explanation for why it's suddenly on schedule.

Possible explanations include the tides, weather and changes in the Earth's core, he said.

The leap second was an unexpected consequence of the 1955 invention of the atomic clock, which use the electromagnetic radiation emanated by Cesium atoms to measure time. It is extremely reliable.

Atomic-based Coordinated Universal Time was implemented in 1972, superseding the astronomically determined Greenwich Mean Time.

Leap seconds can be a big deal, affecting everything from communication, navigation and air traffic control systems to the computers that link global financial markets.

This isn't a normal "I was too lazy to properly check for dupes" situation.

No.

This is a situation where someone, who is supposed to be ON DUTY and who are supposed to READ their emails about potential problems with the story they just posted, neglecting their duty.

Honestly, the story is posted. They only have to pay attention for a total of 15 minutes until it goes live. Whomever it was, didn't.

I'm quite willing to bet that I wasn't the only person that pre-emptively emailed about this being a dupe either.

Re:WTF? (2, Interesting)

LnxAddct (679316) | more than 10 years ago | (#7854829)

How about instead of replacing slashdot, Taco just gives a hundred or so random subscribers the ability to mod a story as a dupe before it is officially posted for everyone else to read? It wouldn't be much harder to implement then mod points or metamoderation. If it wasn't a dupe then noone would have to do anything, but if it was a dupe then those "lucky" few could get someone's attention by clicking a "This is a dupe" link. Regards, Steve

Anonymous Coward | more than 10 years ago | (#7854880)

Traditionally, a byte is "only" 8 bits. A nibble, is 4 bit.

There is also something called a word, I guess its 4 bytes for 32bit machines, but I am not sure of it.

Hence:

  • 1 bit == zero or one.
  • 4 bit == nibble.
  • 8 bit == byte.
  • 1024 bytes == 1 kilobyte.
  • 1024 kilobytes == 1 megabyte.
  • 1024 megabytes == 1 gigabyte.

Scientists have known about this leap second since the early 70s. So there has been atomic clocks made that take leap seconds into account. If my calculations are correct, doesn't this mean that there may be atomic clocks around that contain 5 extra seconds?

ignipotentis (461249) | more than 10 years ago | (#7854890)

I don't think this should be that suprising. It is widely known that the moon's orbit is increasing. The effects of this is slowly causing the tides to be less severe. It is also slowing the earth's rotation. Eventually the moon will be in orbit around the equator, and there will be no more tide. I think there might be a good chance that the loss of the leap second could be related to this.

AOL must have some way of directly converting energy into matter, specificly CDs ala Star Treks replicators. The proof being that if they arn't the entire earths resources would have been consumed 2 or 3 times over in their production via conventional means.

And all that energy to matter conversion has increased the mass of the Earth. Which has increased its gravatational field, and the effects of everything elses field on it. Thus the earth is moving faster.



Or possibly space dust.

at10u8 (179705) | more than 10 years ago | (#7854944)

To be sure, this is merely that there was no leap second yesterday. Slashdot has previously seen another story [slashdot.org] about the possibility that leap seconds might be discontinued permanently. Within the confines of that are links to everything that you could ever want to know about leap seconds, earth rotation, history of internecine wars between astronomers and physicists about time, etc.

dead scientist (732811) | more than 10 years ago | (#7854954)

If you shift mass from the mid latitutes to penguin country, the earth speeds up. Software = orderliness = Gibbs Free Energy = a tiny bit of mass. So the only way we can get leap seconds back is for Windows not only to bloat, but to give value for bloat. Otherwise, we may have to have a negative leap second. Is there a word for this? Say, a pael second.
