UK Users Overwhelmingly Spurn Broadband Filters
Just filter the results for images where the author has given permission for free commercial use and, if requrired, modification. It would be great to teach kids to find, support and create free licensed material than to teach them to make their future boss have to pay for licenses and then insist that their boss pays for them to use only Photoshop to edit it.
UK Gov't Plans To Push "Emergency" Surveillance Laws
Is basically this: "...will receive cross-party support..."
Everything that erodes privacy or impinges on liberties such as overbearing police powers, mass spying, rampant drug prohbition etc. It all gets unquestioned and unchallenged "cross party support".
Wikipedia Editors Hit With $10 Million Defamation Suit
If someone sued me for defamation as a Wikipedia editor I'd just distort the article about the court case to make them and the judge look like ogres. That would fix them!
Curved TVs Nothing But a Gimmick
Excuse me while I just poke one of my useless eyes out. It was a gimmick, apparently.
Am I the only one who actually enjoys watching 3D movies? It's just the glasses that are a pain. They dim the picture and flicker against other light sources, especially cheap LED bulbs.
Emory University SCCM Server Accidentally Reformats All Computers Campus-wide
It reformatted the drives and put Windows on them. Eeewww! That's gross!
Open Source Program To Give Voters More Active Role In Government
German newspaper Der Spiegel once called the movement 'a grassroots democracy where no one is showing up to participate.'"
They were obviously astroturfing by not showing up to participate.
Ask Slashdot: Which VHS Player To Buy?
Also, on top of S-Video output, make sure it has all the latest VHS quality enhancements such as S-VHS (probaby has if it has a S-VIDEO output -duh!) and FM sound. Although it won't help with tapes that were never recorded in these formats, it will certainly bring out the best of the tapes that were.
For old analogue audio recordings, being able to tweak the audio head azimuth will help bring out the best of the recording. I also consider this essential for archiving cassette and open reel recordings. You have to hear how much difference being able to tweak aziumuth makes to believe it. It is a critical adjustment and the playback azimuth has to match that of the recorder otherwise all your top end goes down the plug-hole and it sounds washed out.
Linux May Succeed Windows XP As OS of Choice For ATMs
For example, Redhat/CentOS is 10 years. However there is always the option to pay someone to roll-back updates into whatever version the ATM has, which is onet thing you can't do with a closed source OS.
As far as security is concerned, I would have thought something like QNX would be a better choice than either Windows or Linux. Anyone know what EOL time QNX offer? I couldn't see just be glancing at their website.
Ex-Microsoft Employee Arrested For Leaking Windows 8
They told him he performed like Windows 8?
Google Flu Trends Gets It Wrong Three Years Running
So does this mean that all that shiny blue racks of gleaming hardware in the Google Coud adverts around Slashdot don't actually work??? I really feel sorry for the guys at Google who installed it all and thought they were actually on to something. Only to find that it comes out with the wrong answer every time.
Meat Makes Our Planet Thirsty
Does anyone need some water?
First LSD Test In 40 Years Reveal Drug Helps Terminal Patients Prepare For Death
According to this scientific paper. Acid blows holes in your aura, man, ain't nothing but a quick buzz and they won't take no LSD.
Free (Gratis) Version of Windows Could Be a Reality Soon
I need MS VS, MS expressions web, ventrillo, star wars the old republic, and yes sadly office as my resume won't be formatted correctly with any other package.
Office works very well with under Wine. I use it myself on Linux. Also, why would you send a resume in an editable format? Do you want them to see your editing history? PDF would be better. The page format doesn't slide around and it's universal.
That's old hat! On Android, everythinng blocks the UI thread!
Netflix: Non-'A' Players Unworthy of Jobs
I bet the interview includes this test.
How Microwave Transmission Is Linking Financial Centers At Near-Light Speed
The fact that the traders count milliseconds is proof that they are just scam artists. Parasites, producing nothing of value. High-speed trading is nothing but a mechanism for funneling money to the rich from everyone else.
It adds a whole new meaning to, "pulling a fast-one"!
Wikimedia Sends Cease and Desist Letter To Firm Providing Paid Editing Services
Paid editing isn't banned. Frowned on a bit, maybe, but not banned. It is creating loads of sockpuppets and editing deceptively and disruptively that seems to have got these guys in trouble.
'Eraser' Law Will Let California Kids Scrub Online Past
So does this mean that I can, like, cause massive disruption, troll WP:ANI and be a total WP:DICK and then apply for adminship without creating a new account? Cool!
Intel Rolls Out Raspberry Pi Competitor
That's what it looks like to me. Maybe a bit smaller but not much. Also having a price that high defeats the whole object. It might be good but it isn't a competitor to the Raspberry Pi. Wrong size, wrong price backet.
It Takes 2.99 Gigajoules To Vaporize a Human Body
I'll leave my phasor set to "stun" in future. It will help extend the battery life.
