This redesign is seriously pissing me off, trying to click links in collapsed comments just expands that comment. Clicking again just expands the next higher level comment, and so on and so forth. Then once all the bullshit is done expanding clicking the link does nothing! How the hell does
Logged in to see this:
15 moderator points expire 2011-02-11.
It only took a decade but I finally got mod points again.
So, saw a comment today regarding some people getting 10 mod points instead of the normal 5. Must be nice, I haven't seen any mod points in literally 6+ years. I can pretty much narrow down when they disappeared too, after posting in political articles from a conservative standpoint. Supposedly there's no 'blacklist' but I'm sure it's statistically very very unlikely to go without mod points for so long. Anybody else suffering from an suspiciously odd drought of mod points?
(And yes, I'm not using Wherefore thou art to mean why)
I don't know how many of you have checked your GMail this morning, but having pulled an all-nighter again, I got a rather strange notice in Thunderbird saying my account was not enabled for IMAP, or something to that nature. Upon logging into GMail's web-interface, I noticed in the Settings page "Forwarding and POP/IMAP" has reverted back to "Forwarding and POP" again. Is this permanent, or just a temporary change by Google?
Edit: Strangest one-off bug, signed out, then signed back in again, and the setting is back.
A new report on climate over the world's southernmost continent shows that temperatures during the late 20th century did not climb as had been predicted by many global climate models. This comes soon after the latest report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change that strongly supports the conclusion that the Earth's climate as a whole is warming, largely due to human activity. David Bromwich, professor of professor of atmospheric sciences in the Department of Geography, and researcher with the Byrd Polar Research Center at Ohio State University, reported on this work at the annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science at San Francisco.
Got my car broken into again, almost caught them in the act too. For those keeping score this is B&E #3, and broken window #2 with a bonus completely bent window frame. This time I had my factory radio in, and I guess they didnt want the tape deck since it's still in there. Overall I guess they didn't take anything so that's a plus. Another plus is I dont have a concealed carry license and I dont have a gun by my bed so I couldn't shoot at them as they drove off, because I would of been very so tempted, but then I'd prolly get in trouble for discharging a firearm. Oh well, it's 3:41am and I got classes at 9:30, but stuff like this pisses me off and I need to rant.
On February 15th, the one and only Ann Coulter is going to be at my college to speak, and I gots me a ticket
Sorry to say it, but it's not. Given the recent posts on slashdot from devs/ex-devs and considering their 'old boy' attitude on this bug (can't link from slashdot). Add in that whole MNG fiasco, it looks less and less that the Mozilla devs care about what their users want and more of what they want.
Well not all pilots, military pilots. I'm trying to verify some info I was told a *long* time ago about a certain button on the KC-135 (Can't remember which Bloc/Revision/etc but I'm guessing a 135R) that sits between the APU starts. Any help would be greatly appreciated
Nothing like a nice DDoS to clean out the connection in the morning. Evidently I pissed somebody off lol, had a good 800+ kb/s incoming UDP flood coming from spoofed IP's and before that a ICMP flood. WHeeee!
Wow, looking back, I have had mod points in quite a while. Wheras I used to get em at least once a week if not more, I haven't had any in the past 3-4 months. Is there some moderating blacklist or something? I think I'll investigate
Do you mind telling us how you purchased fractional quantities of a
Slashdot subscription yesterday? We're trying to figure out how to
fix this apparent bug, and it would be nice to know how you did it.

Is there some Moderation Boycott I didn't hear about? I used to browse at +2 but found that way to cluttered so I changed that to +3 . . now I rarely if ever see more then 10 posts modded more then +3 per story. . . is the Moderation System borked or are people just not using their mod points or what?
What I think would be an interesting, albeit probably a bad idea in the long run (spam), is an Internal Messenging system for slashdot. Users can send private messages to each other, instead of having to post it in their Journals. This way, I could find out why the hell some people put me as a friend, for instance
Just looking back through my recent comments, I haven't been getting the automagick +2 for having excellent karma? Does that not apply anymore? all my comments ahve started out at +1
