Report: Space Elevators Are Feasible


The Space Elevator Will Mean: Less Parking, Weird Ribbon Thing, Constant Loud Whirring Noise, Increased Space Elevator Truck Traffic. Developers have submitted plans to build a massive space elevator in Williamsburg! This monstrosity, completely out of context with existing development in the neighborhood, will be accessible only to the wealthy, forcing thousands of average Williamsburgers from their homes and live-work spaces! Jobs the elevator will generate (operators, repairmen, astronauts) are certain to go to non-residents! Don't sit idly by and let this elevator cast its impossibly long, cold, and very narrow shadow over our homes! CALL 311 AND TELL THEM 'I JUST DON'T NEED THIS SPACE ELEVATOR!'"

Apple Devices To Outsell Windows For First Time Ever In 2013

Morky Re:Not the whole picture (391 comments)

He isn't perfect, but to say he is not a visionary is missing the fact that he was selling software on every from platform the moment the PC arrived (1975), at 20 years old. He saw the software market before anyone.

Ask Slashdot: How To Stay Fit In the Office?

Morky Before work (372 comments)

Get up early three times a week and gym, bike, or run. It's difficult to be consistent going to the gym after work, since you may be drained or want to spend time with friends or family. Working out early also energizes you for the day, one you are a bit in shape (just a few weeks to adjust). Also, your workout doesn't need to be more than 30-45 minutes, but you should work out with some intensity, once you have worried up to being able to do so.

I should have googled Bachmann on this before I commented. That's funny.

It's like a Voice of America type thing. No big deal.

Well now, if Bachmann says so, it must be the right thing to do.

iOS 5 Update Available

Morky Re:I did mine a year and a half back. (473 comments)

However, I would need to install iOS 5 on an iPhone 3G to really be able to perfectly reproduce the lag and latency that Android users have today.

Novell Wins Against SCO Again

Morky Darl (152 comments)

SCO could have been Red Hat. They were THE Intel UNIX, and could have moved their huge, loyal base to Linux, and continued to grow it. They even had large hardware vendors supporting their OS when Linux was still a baby. Unfortunately, they decided to hire a short-sighted, litigious CEO. Good night, SCO. Good riddance, Darl.

I can't wait for super-colds to arrive, thanks to this breakthrough. The common cold is innocuous enough, so why force it to evolve?

Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.4 Released

Morky Version 5? But I still use Red Hat 5.2.. (110 comments)

I like how they circled back to the version numbers of 10 years ago. Ah, the good old days of kernel 2.0.36 and ext2. I remember the joy of getting my sound card working on that: "...and I pronounce Linux, Leenux".
