The Untold Story of the Invention of the Game Cartridge

OhSoLaMeow Re:Obligatory Joke (60 comments)

We'd probably have records with twenty parallel grooves and reading heads with 40 or more needles.

I'm an old fart. I worked on a Burroughs B3500 back in the 70s. The "Disk Module" was a 10MB cabinet about 4 ft by 4ft by 2ft. It had 4 platters and there was one head per track. Seek time was non-existent but rotational delay was a bitch.

Scientists Have Finally Sampled the Most Abundant Material On Earth

OhSoLaMeow Re:Wait till they see water! (128 comments)

actually the total amount of water would only cover the entire surface with a uniform layer one fifteenth of one percent the total radius of the planet. Water is in fact, therefore, pretty scarce on Earth.

How many libraries of Congress is that?

The Deat of Slashdot

OhSoLaMeow OhSoLaMeow writes  |  about 2 years ago

OhSoLaMeow (2536022) writes "From the Daily Caller:
"A recently introduced bill in the Illinois state Senate would require anonymous website comment posters to reveal their identities if they want to keep their comments online. The bill, called the Internet Posting Removal Act, is sponsored by Illinois state Sen. Ira Silverstein. It states that a “web site administrator upon request shall remove any comments posted on his or her web site by an anonymous poster unless the anonymous poster agrees to attach his or her name to the post and confirms that his or her IP address, legal name, and home address are accurate.”
This could be the death of Slashdot: No more ACs."

Bed, Bath & Beyond recalls tissue holder on ra

OhSoLaMeow OhSoLaMeow writes  |  about 3 years ago

OhSoLaMeow (2536022) writes ""Bed Bath & Beyond Inc is recalling tissue holders because one of its materials emits low levels of radiation, the company said on Friday."

They go on to say "The NRC has also informed us that the material is believed to be in the tissue holder itself and cannot be inhaled, nor can it contaminate other objects (such as tissues)."

Darn. Not enough radiation to generate the 1.21 gigawatts needed for my flux capacitor."
