Brucelet Re:Gotta hand it to them... (49 comments)

Boot To Zork

Brucelet Thanks for that summary (106 comments)

This is going to sound sarcastic, but in all sincerity, thanks, Slashdot, for posting a geeky story full or technical jargon. You used to be able to come here and find tons of stuff like this: obscure notes with enough confusing details to inspire you to go look something up and maybe even learn a thing or two. Good to know that News for Nerds still does occasionally happen.

J.K. Rowling Should Try the Voting Algorithm

Brucelet I'd like to advocate something similar... (128 comments)

Perhaps Bennett Haselton should use an anonymous blog instead of Slashdot to pour out all his half-baked novel-length thoughts. That might be a better way to see how much luck plays a role in determining whether anyone cares what he's blathering about.
