Ask Slashdot: Is Pascal Underrated?

Jacek Poplawski people compare IDEs not languages (484 comments)

When most people hear "Pascal" what they really have in their minds is "Turbo Pascal" by Borland. So they compare very old Borland IDE with Visual Studio or Eclipse.

Tracking Down How Many (Or How Few) People Actively Use Google+

Jacek Poplawski mistake (209 comments)

Google made mistake by forcing usage of Google+, nobody wants to be forced - and nobody wants to make all things public. It can be a lesson to others.

How Flickr Is Courting the Next Generation of Photographers

Jacek Poplawski flickr is obsolete (97 comments)

I used flickr years ago, then I switched to 500px. Yesterday I wanted to check out how flickr looks now, I did basic test - display best photos. On 500px you can just click "popular" and you can browse amazing photography. How to do it on flickr? After few minutes I resigned, because all I saw was just crap.

Kernel Developer Dmitry Monakhov Arrested For Protesting Ukraine Invasion

Jacek Poplawski Re:News for nerds ... (205 comments)

information about kernel developer / russian invasion on Ukraine is not important?

Because it's a personal interested story about some guy protesting something that his government did and getting arrested for it .. oh and BTW he's a kernel developer.

TFA has fuck all to do with the state of Russian/Ukraine protests - so it doesn't even count as politics
It is barely tangentially a technology story - oh noes if a kernel developer goes to jail, what will happened to my precious ^w Linux

So I assume you wrote similar comments to all news about 9/11 or any american politics, which is not related to technology at all? Or do you mean that Ukraine is not important while USA is?

Kernel Developer Dmitry Monakhov Arrested For Protesting Ukraine Invasion

Jacek Poplawski News for nerds ... (205 comments)

I completely disagree.
Why bull**** about "global warming" is important "news for nerds" and information about kernel developer / russian invasion on Ukraine is not important?
I think Slashdot was much more intesting 10 years ago than it is now, but your comment shows that this direction is not accidental.

How Free-To-Play Is Constricting Mobile Games

Jacek Poplawski and your point is...? (115 comments)

"Recent data shows 20 percent of mobile games get opened once and never again." I was trying to understand what these numbers mean but I failed. What's your point? If the cost of game is zero then anyone can try it, just like anyone could install demo version or just watch gameplay on youtube. While I agree that in-app purchases can destroy games (and perfect example is Dungeon Keeper) - I don't see any logical conclusion in your numbers.

Jacek Poplawski RIP Freedom of Speech (1746 comments)

Welcome in the 2014 - the Freedom of Speech is dead.
I use Mozilla since its first days, when Phoenix (later Firefox) was only usable browser on Linux.
I was always trying to support it, now it's just another evil company, just like Microsoft of Apple.

Is Computer Science Education Racist and Sexist?

Jacek Poplawski stupidity (612 comments)

I just wonder how big the level of stupidity left wing must reach before it will be recognized by the majority of society. Or at least my majority of slashdot readers.

Let's go to the next level. Let's see how many females play first person shooter games. Maybe it's time to ban all these games because they are so sexist.

Or maybe someone should just call bullshit a bullshit.

All this stuff is a lie. You believe in "global warming" religion, even if you consider youself as an atheist.

Could you explain after so many years what was the reason to give Nobel Prize for Al Gore? BTW Could you also explain what was the reason to give Nobel Prize for Obama?

Kevin Smith announced Clerks III

Jacek Poplawski Jacek Poplawski writes  |  about 2 years ago

Jacek Poplawski (223457) writes "Kevin Smith just wrote on Facebook:
20 years ago today, we started shooting CLERKS.
20 years later, with no plan or provocation, I jumped out of bed at 4:20 this morning and started writing CLERKS III.
It's been like hanging out with old friends.
And after 2 hours of tapping the keys and giggling, I have come to a conclusion...
CLERKS III will be the best film I'll ever make.""

Shocking and depressing South Park episode

Jacek Poplawski Jacek Poplawski writes  |  more than 3 years ago

Jacek Poplawski (223457) writes "28 pages (at the time of writing this story) of forum speculations — is this the end of South Park as we know it? Very sad ending of last episode, a true drama for each fan.... and a masterpiece. We have to wait until October now... Are we too old to watch cartoons anymore? Are we too old to enjoy this kind of humour? Are Trey and Matt too old to create more episodes?"

Digg dies, just like Slashdot few years ago

Jacek Poplawski Jacek Poplawski writes  |  more than 4 years ago

Jacek Poplawski (223457) writes "I was active Slashdot user few years ago, then it started to be very boring, so I started to use Digg. It was nice until this year, when Kevin Rose decided he is very clever and must change Digg to something between Facebook and Twitter. Site started to be unusable, people stopped using it. Where should we move now? Can Slashdot be interesting again?
