Ask Slashdot: Preparing For Windows XP EOL?
Are you saying that there aren't windows 95/98/2000/older machines out there doing work? Because there are. This really is going to be a non-event.

Canonical's Troubles With the Free Software Community
systemd is from Red Hat. It was adopted by other distros because they believed it solved a problem, not because Red Hat tried to tell others that they must use it.
Is the Tesla Model S Pedal Placement A Safety Hazard?
Is this the same bullshit that almost made Audi pull out of the US? It looks like it.
Red Hat Hires CentOS Developers
Replacing systemd with smf and btrfs with zfs would be fantastic. Solaris 10 and OpenSolaris did so many things just right and Linux so wrong.
Firefox 27 Released: TLS 1.2 Support, SPDY 3.1, SocialAPI Improvements
Did you see them before? This release didn't add them, it added more. Personally I have no idea where they are.
'Web Junkie': Harrowing Documentary On China's Internet Addiction Rehab Clinics
I play less now because I'm bored with them since they're really the same rinse and repeat grind
Ya that happens to heroin addicts all the time. It's just the same damn high time after time, they get bored of it and stop.
Just admit you didn't have the self control to curtail something you wanted to do. Quit trying to hide behind some 'it's not my fault" excuse.
OpenSUSE Forums Defaced, Email Addresses Leaked

But vBulletin was? Holy shit, what are the alternatives?
Surviving the Internet On Low Speed DSL
Then you both have crappy Internet connections. It is easy to say, "what are you complaining about, it's fine" when you've never had a good connection.
I said whining and I did it in an extremely condescending way, because the whole premise of the article is 'how will I ever survive on 1.5mbps.' It wasn't, 'this kind of sucks but oh well.' The article is whining like a little bitch for having speeds comparable to most of the rest of the US.
my home which has 150 down, 65 up
That's it? How ever do you manage, I would die if I was ever constrained so much. BTW you seem to be under the impression I've never used faster.
Lawmakers Out To Kill the Corn-Based Ethanol Mandate
Change the Volt to a Hybrid VW TDI and I would run down to the dealership right now screaming "TAKE MY MONEY!"
Surviving the Internet On Low Speed DSL
OMFG how ever will you survive on 1.5mbps?
5 years ago where I live finally got DSL at 768bps. 2 years ago it actually got bumped to a maximum of 3mbps. WTF are you whining about?
The Business of Attention Deficit Disorder
they allow family doctors to diagnose ADHD and prescribe the meds at all
You wouldn't think about going to a psychiatrist to get a flu shot or cholesterol medication yet we are perfectly happy to go to any other doctor for psychiatric medication.
They're not qualified but they won't stop given their own egos and people won't see a psychiatrist when they should between the stigma associated with it and issues with insurance.
CBS 60 Minutes: NSA Speaks Out On Snowden, Spying
This isn't a character attack, what he did was illegal. They don't need to stretch the truth here. They'll keep saying it because it is going to be on those grounds that he is dealt with and that detail is the only one many people think about.
That his actions were justifiable or moral or whatever you think of him doesn't change the fact that was he did was illegal, and that's the only true fact they have to work with.
Patent Battle May Loom Over 'Copenhagen Wheel' Electric Bike
Is this the new gay thing? It was you were gay if you were a man who in any way was interested in how you looked, is it now that you're a hipster?
I need to know so I know why I'm slovenly.
Jury Finds Newegg Infringed Patent, Owes $2.3 Million
It wasn't better marketed, it was created and made available by Diffie. That 'and' is important here. The British kept it secret that they even done it until '97. This is an example of parallel invention, only in this case one side made it known he had created it and the other didn't. For creating and publicizing Diffie is correctly attributed as the co-creator of Public Key Cryptography.
Science Museum Declines To Show Climate Change Film
I have no idea of the value of the content of the film in question, but if the residents of NC don't want to have the rest of the world point and laugh at them, perhaps they should stop doing things and stop electing people that cause the world to point and laugh at them.
NC has earned all this derision.
Microsoft Customers Hit With New Wave of Fake Tech Support Calls
Seriously, they won't listen to they guy they know is paid to do this but some random guy on the phone 'ya, this seems legit.'

AMD To Launch a Windows 8.1 Gaming Tablet
Windows 8 belongs on a tablet, it's quite easy to see how it would work well on one. On the desktop however, that is were it starts falling flat. Technically, Windows 8 under the user experience is an improvement, the tablet interface on a keyboard/mouse desktop on the other hand is not.
How MOOC Faculty Exploit People's Desire To Learn
taking the old idea of a correspondence course and adding the phrase "...on the inernet!
