I am in the beta, all the info that was published this month (including the massive SC2 Beta FAQ) is there, system requirements, screenshots, and will soon be posting replays/videos. Currently 500 users online, so I can handle bit of slashdotting :)

Evolution of Intelligence More Complex Than Once Thought

Shohat Re:The hard work is just around the corner... (453 comments)

The ability to extract a certain set of characters from mangled patterns included in an image is not necessarily a task that humans should have an advantage in. I am pretty sure that it would take a human significantly more time to deny/allow a user access, based on biometric data such as fingerprints or a voice pattern.
A computer has to extract the data from a very limited (a small image) sample, and is 100% "sure" that all extracted data falls within a very limited predefined set of results - the alphabet.
A (very) well written algorithm can easily have an edge on most humans.

Ender in Exile

Shohat Ender's Game and Ender's Shadow (507 comments)

Ender's game, and many years later, Ender's Shadow, were two good books.
The other six books, 3 in the original and 3 in the shadow series are written with even less talent that Douglas Adam's later books.

Linux Ecosystem Is Worth $25 Billion

Shohat Mod (176 comments)

How much is Linux worth today? That's a question the Linux Foundation is trying to answer in a new report expected to be released on Wednesday.

There's no need for that, we already have the answer (see title).

Black Hole Fires at Neighboring Galaxy

Shohat Shohat writes  |  more than 7 years ago

StarCraft 2 writes "This composite image shows the jet from a black hole at the center of a galaxy striking the edge of another galaxy, the first time such an interaction has been found. In the image, it is clearly seen how the jet from the main galaxy on the lower left is striking its companion galaxy to the upper right. The jet impacts the companion galaxy at its edge and is then disrupted and deflected, much like how a stream of water from a hose will splay out after hitting a wall at an angle.
The composite image was made by combining data from Chandra, Hubble and several other systems."

Shohat writes "A woman posted an ad on Craigslist, offering a certain something for some quick cash in her game of choice, WoW.The offer was very specific, and And she got what she wanted — enough money an epic flying mount - Screenshots of the postings prior to removal .
First of all, is this prostitution? Sure seems like it, although MMO money isn't entirely established as legally worth real money yet, even if people buy and sell it all the time on multiple online and offline markets."
