Dutch Gov. Wants To Tax Online Media To Fund Print

Stephan202 Re:Slashdot is, as usual, behind the times (187 comments)

"Only really stupid paranoids think that there is a secret society trying to get them. People in general are too lazy to act en-masse' to disrupt things if they are comfortable. If you are creating misery and death for a group, then by all means worry.\n\nBut these people are simply clutching at straws..\n"

Ubuntu's Laptop Killing Bug Fixed

Stephan202 Re:Dumb newbie question (271 comments)

You will have to update your machine right away after installation. As you can see from the file dates at the bottom of the download page, the images are not updated after the initial release: http://releases.ubuntu.com/releases/8.10/. Hence, *always* perform security updates immediately after installation.
