Skype Blocks Customers Using OS-X 10.5.x and Earlier

LocutusOfBorg1 Re: Not Ubuntu to blame (267 comments)

Canonical partner repository does, and they pushed the new skype a couple of days before it stopped worling. So at least on ubuntu the usual apt-get trick should work. The debian download is different on the website, I don't know if it belongs to the same package though (a.k.a. I don't know if it is safe to use the partner repository on debian, you might debdiff the binaries or unpack them to check)

Rubik's Cube: 40 Years Old and Never Meant To Be a Toy

LocutusOfBorg1 Re:40 years and I still can't solve it (105 comments)

This is easy: remove all the coloured stickers from each cube face, and you get a cube with each face having a uniform colour.

I did exactly this when I received my first cube. Still not able to solve it :)

China Bumps US Out of First Place For Fastest Supercomptuer

Well, China would have it easy when the article submitter misspells COMPUTER...

WRONG! In french "tuer" means "kill". So I assume they are talking about a new machine for killing people
