Ask Slashdot: Why Is the Power Grid So Crummy In So Many Places?
No - it's not even a question. Bury the lines and you will remove a large number of causes for power outages.
I can only assume there is never any storm / flood water in these utopian locales, or that it remains so pure as to be incapable of conducting electricity.
Coal Plants Get New Lease On Life With Natural Gas
It gives us a foundation on which to build our economy. It gives us hope.

Ask Slashdot: Workaday Software For BSD On the Desktop?
I think the final nail in the anti-system movement [a proud member] was Torvalds' non-chalant, I-can't-be-bothered-with-such-trivialities response when asked about this virus. I can't be the only one that was stunned by his attitude, assuring the rapid takeover of Linux by the Red Hat / NSA consortium.
They will be coming for your kernel one day, Linus, but there will be no one left to speak up.

Ricky or Bubbles?
Longtime Debian Developer Tollef Fog Heen Resigns From Systemd Maintainer Team
It appears RedHat has realised that, through systemd, it can readily provide preferential support for its own projects, and place roadblocks up for projects it does not control, thus extending its influence broadly and quickly. By using tenuous dependencies amongst its own projects it can speed adoption even faster.
And who is one of Red Hat's most lucrative customers?
The National Security Administration
State Department Joins NOAA, USPS In Club of Hacked Federal Agencies
Maybe it's time for FedGov to build their own Internet that is intentionally incompatible with the foundational building blocks of the Internet (except at well-controlled, secure interface conversion gateways).
Military Laser/Radio Tech Proposed As Alternative To Laying Costly Fiber Cable
"Can I build around 50 miles of Tehachapi mountains?"
Debunking a Viral Internet Post About Breastfeeding Racism
I recall stories tagged with OhNoItsFlorian; well past time for a OhNoItsBennett tag.
How YouTube Music Key Will Redefine What We Consider Music
Nope. I'll carry on with free Pandora and my own collection, thanks. I really don't see a $120 annual bill appealing to the same stressed economic group that is now 'cable-cutting'.
Plus buying music from YouTube just sounds like the equivalent to shopping at Dollar General: embarrassing.
Linux Foundation Comments On Microsoft's Increasing Love of Linux
In light of them strong-arming every manufacturer that dared to use Android with threats of supposed IP infringement (that has not and probably never will see the sterilizing judicial light of day), this 'change of heart'... isn't.
Satty first needs to don the hairshirt and make quite a few public apologies for past AND CURRENT actions against FOSS.
Philae Lands Successfully On Comet
"Had his chest been a cannon, he'd have shot his Philae upon it." Or something.
FCC Confirms Delay of New Net Neutrality Rules Until 2015
Seriously. U.S. has worse speed AND higher prices than most of the Western world, including pretty much all of Europe.
This also succinctly describes Amercian health care and prescription drugs. I'm sensing a pro-corporate trend here.
Amazon's Echo Chamber
I just hope it can read back your writing to you.
Raspberry Pi A+ Details Leaked
I've never understood the British use of the word 'mains' when talking about household wiring; it seems to imply there was / is 'secondary' or 'auxilliary' wiring.
Silk Road 2.0 Seized By FBI, Alleged Founder Arrested In San Francisco
The Government God forbids mere mortals from being allowed to escape their just punishments of soberly enduring the stupidity and drudgery of Western life - with the exemption of booze and prescription meds like Jesus would want, of course.
Scotland Builds Power Farms of the Future Under the Sea
Every underwater generation scheme is toasted by the life problem. None of them are tolerant of all the sea life that will grow on and around the facility.
Simple: coat everything in paint with Transuranic waste additives!
Virgin Galactic SpaceShipTwo Crashes
Things being cheaper makes them more accessible to all.
With the exception of universal health care, housing, clean water, living wages...
Statisticians Study Who Was Helped Most By Obamacare
Many of the poorest and most rural states in the country tend to favor Republican politicians.
Lord, don't I know it. Fitting that today is Halloween, as during All Hallows Eve when Obama was first running, all the Obama yard signs (and only the Obama yard signs) went missing from all the front lawns in my little burg located deep inside a deep Red State. "High school kids playing a prank", said the cops. Sure. Sure they were. But even if they were, they learned their blatant racial hatred from Mom and Dad.
It's part and parcel of the severe mental illness of poor GOP voters: "If I vote to let billionaires become trillionaires, I myself will magically become a millionaire solely because I'm White!"
Google Developing a Pill To Detect Cancer
You mean the particles so tiny, they can easily pass thru the blood / brain barrier and do unimaginable neurological damage? Those particles? #WhatCouldPossiblyGoWrong
LAX To London Flight Delayed Over "Al-Quida" Wi-Fi Name
People are living life with their assholes puckered.
Well, I'd certainly hope so.
