Ask Slashdot: How/Where To Start Watching Dr. Who?

SicariusMan Start with 1 episode of current Doctor. (655 comments)

I would tell you to start with the season that started with the current Doctor. Then go back and start on a season when a new Doctor starts. Every doctor has his own arc and don't really cross over each other much. In some of the newer ones, you won't make the connection to some of the "older" characters that make guest spots, but then when you work your way back to the season where they show up originally, you'll be like, "Oh, OK I get it now". Someone else put it in another of the comments that the great thing about a time traveling show is that you don't have to watch them sequentially. That's kinda true, but I'd say its nicer to watch the episodes of a season that way, and to watch a Doctor develop from the start of his first season as the Doctor. Good luck with catching up.

The Beatles On iTunes

SicariusMan Re:Cheaper to buy CDs (551 comments)

I don't know about the CD set, but the iTunes version has the iTunes LP extras including two of their original concerts. I'm not a Beatles guy at all, as I'm under 35, but I do respect the influence they've had on music.

SCO Terminates IBM's Unix License

SicariusMan SCO has to be crazy. (1065 comments)

I am sorry, but I just can't imagine how SCO thinks it can win a pissing contest againist IBM. I mean come on, they couldn't outdue RedHat, Mandrake, or the other Linux distro's, but they think they can win againist Big Blue? Anymore US courts comes down to money, PR, and how famous you are/were. Ask any American what SCO is and does, and unless they are a techie, they will stare at you blankly. Ask them who/what IBM is and does, and they will answer anything from they make PCs, to they make cash registers. In the end IBM will win if for nothing more than they are a big, old, well respected company, and an icon of big business in the US.

Rogue Certificate Authorities Now Possible

SicariusMan SicariusMan writes  |  about 6 years ago

SicariusMan (412699) writes "It seems that according to this article some security researchers have been able to create a rogue certificate authority. The fake certificates are accepted by all popular browsers across many operating systems. Seems like we'll soon be turning the corner to some type of new system soon."
