Jupiter's Great Red Spot Is Shrinking
Actually, I read a story about the current solar minimum just today, and how that has reduced the solar wind pressure. Perhaps that's the cause of the red spot on Jupiter.
Of course, that story's comments had similar "the economy is shrinking the sun" stupidity, and that's what made me think of it just now.
Hulu Munging HTML With JS To Protect Content
Not if they hand you the decoder and you run it, since that's what they expect you to do anyway.
Circumvention is when you bypass their protection by making your own decrypter. Playback is when you use their decrypter for the exact same purpose.
Only circumvention is named in the DMCA.
I typically stick with the same desktop environment
Windows-button commands aren't handled by explorer.exe, which is where the taskbar, start menu, folder windows, and other shell crap is run from.
I'm pretty sure Ctrl-Alt-Del (Windows Security), Ctrl-Shift-Esc (Task Manager), Win-R (Run), Win-L (Lock), and most of the rest of those sort of commands are all run by System, which is basically a fancy way of saying "the fricking WinNT kernel." That's also why you can't change them.
If explorer.exe crashes, just run another instance. It's just a damn shell. Hell, replace it if you want.
Just because it's not Linux doesn't mean it isn't properly designed in at least some ways.
Interview With the Author of "Mastering Cat"
Watch out, he might start using a Heisenberg Compensator. Then you're screwed.
Of course, if he uses one, he'll have to build it first, and if he can build one, he'll have earned the card back anyway.

I'm guessing that since it runs Linux, you might be able to find a copy of gcc for the OLPC (it doesn't include it out of the box) and compile OTTD. Alternatively, maybe one of the precompiled binaries on the OTTD site would work. The requisite TTDWin assets are "available", though it would be nice of Chris Sawyer to release them freely to the world now. And hey, you never know when they'll actually finish the 32-bit graphics pack for OTTD. It could be tomorrow (but probably not).
