Rover Curiosity Discovers Australia-Shaped Rock On Mars

Hydrated Wombat Re:In related news ... (99 comments)

Yes. Next test of google's speed: "flurtle wurtle jurtle turtle." Maybe we could get everyone to learn arbitrary subjects by spreading rumors about a code hidden in Euclid's elements that successfully predicts all major aspects of traditional geometry. Incidentally, it is normally spelled "naan"

Ask Slashdot: Best Linux Game For Young Kids?

Hydrated Wombat Games on linux? (338 comments)

I thought linux was the game. I mean, it took me two weeks to unlock wifi on my laptop when I first installed linux a few years ago. Then, bluetooth keyboard failure attacked, and I had to use tank, nuke, and heal (read driver manuals, sudo mv new drivers in place, and drink coffee). Did I win or lose?

Mal-sites and Civic Duty

Hydrated Wombat Hydrated Wombat writes  |  more than 6 years ago

Hydrated Wombat (1314267) writes "I have run across a number of malware distributing sites that have very insipid programs, including the wretched onlinexpscanner.com (don't go there), and those sites surely envelop a large number of innocent web users: what actions can be taken against sites such as that? If governments have no authority to stop these sites, do they have the authority to punish any ordinary citizen or group of citizens from attacking those who threaten the public? I know public education can fight malware some, but I don't think most ordinary users have enough discernment to protect themselves."
