Ask Slashdot: How Do You Track Bugs For Personal Software Projects?
I am not associated with them, nor employed by them. But I've used them for many projects now and been generally happy with the result.
Happy Towel Day!

Signs of Ozone Layer Recovery Detected
Why is it that the scientists can detect an ozone hole, provide a fix, show that the fix solved the problem, and then be LOUDLY IGNORED by the liars in congress.
Oh. The CFL manufacturers had less money than the oil people. Sorry. I forgot...
Bill Clinton Suggests Internet Fact Agency
It's the only way. When we had it, politics was more civil and more responsive. Since it's been gone, there's nothing but a greed-fest in public discourse. Who cares if it's a lie if you get ratings? With the Fairness Doctrine in place, the liar gets an immediate shellacking.
Skynet Becomes Aware, Launches Nuclear Attack
Right day. Wrong evil AI. Come on people!!!
Is China Creating the World's Largest Botnet Army?
TRUST NO ONE!
DO NOT TRUST THE CHINESE! (But eat their food, wear their clothes, use their electronics)
DO NOT TRUST THE USA! (But obey their laws, enjoy their movies, work for their money)
DO NOT TRUST THE IRANIANS (But ignore their democratic progress and ignore their people's work for peace)
Here's the real answer:
DO NOT TRUST YOURSELF, because you're an idiot.
Distrust is for the weak. Optimistic skepticism and honest effort are for the strong.
Supreme Court Sides With Rambus Over FTC
I send you a heaping spoonful of good luck. You're the only person that actually looked into what was going on and reported on it. You also changed my view of the situation with facts not rants.
More power to you.
Teacher Sells Ads On Tests
If people weren't so hell bent on not paying taxes we wouldn't have this problem. I hear people say "I don't have kids, why should I pay for school tax"
Guess what? You went to a school? You PAY for a school! Otherwise, go live in a third world country.
Did you know that in California it takes a 2/3rds majority to raise taxes but only a 51/49 vote to spend more money??? Now we're having massive teacher and police layoffs because republican assholes and cheating democrats aren't willing to man up and pay their dues.
I love paying taxes.
I use them to buy civilization.
Tonnes of respect for what he's done, but his stories aren't really that great at all. Even Snowcrash which I did enjoy always felt like a pooly told story to me. It had great moments but for the most part was just too unrealistically gratuitous.
What people should really read is Vernor Vinge. Everything by him is excellent. Strong concepts, believable characters, Crisply written.
Battlestar Galactica Props Are For Sale
Yes, yes. Blow people up, Nuke millions, fist-fights, shootings, betrayal, lies: all good fun.
But the implication that adults actually enjoy sex more than they enjoy killing each other: BLASPHEMY!
When it comes to sex Americans are sick and stupid.
Murder=good / Sex=bad: OMGWTFBBQ???
iTunes On OS X Finally Has Competition
I like iTunes specifically because it doesn't waste my time with themes and skins and color choices. How cares what your music player looks like? How many times has an attractive woman looked at the customized UI for your software and thought "Wow. There's a guy I'd like to get it on with". (Answer: Zero)
I'll grant that some competition might drive additional features into iTunes, but please please please can we stop acting like altering the UI of a program does anything even remotely useful?
Linux Now an Equal Flash Player
Competition is good and all, but this is just annoying. It only exists to muddy the waters.
I'm just waiting for MS to announce that they will no longer speak english, but will communicate only in Anglush-Sharp. A language in which every noun is copyrighted by Microsoft and only MS approved verbs will generate an intelligible response.
