Slashdot Tries Something New; Audience Responds!

cs96and Re:Why? (2219 comments)

The problem I have with the mobile site is that my phone just can't handle it. It is slow slow as to be completely unusable. The desktop site runs fine though. Shouldn't a mobile site be more lightweight than the desktop site? It seems that reverse is actually true.

Why JavaScript On Mobile Is Slow

cs96and Slashdot mobile website (407 comments)

If this is the case, why is the new Slashdot mobile website so javascript heavy? I simply cannot use it on my phone and have to revert to the desktop version, which runs much smoother and faster. Mobile websites should be lighter and faster than their desktop counterparts, not the other way around!

Bing Becomes No.2 Search Engine at 4.37%

cs96and Re:Excellent! (366 comments)

Now if only it didn't suck.

I wish someone - even Microsoft - would come up with a decent alternative to Google. Being a monopoly is making them more and more corrupt, and by being the gatekeeper, they now own too much of the internet.

Try duckduckgo.com. It's pretty good

The Golden Age of Infinite Music

cs96and Re:It's an evolution, not a revolution (294 comments)

Well whatever. Because that is me. I evolve, but I don't revolve. Or vice-versa. I suppose what you're trying to say is, you don't want another Chris Evans on your hands.

What Free IDE Do You Use?

cs96and CodeLite (1055 comments)

http://www.codelite.org/ Its the only IDE I've ever found comfortable to use on Linux. Eclipse isn't designed for C++ and feels clunky as a result. Code::Blocks was OK, but seemed to have too many bugs to make it usable. CodeLite on the other hand is designed for C++ and I haven't encountered any major bugs preventing me from using it productively.

Helping Surfers Sidestep Site Registration

cs96and Mailinator (91 comments)

Whenever a site asks me to register before I can access content (and I don't mind my username/password being made public), I use http://www.mailinator.com/. You basically make.up.an.email.address@mailinator.com, and then head over to the site, type in your made up email address, and it shows you the last 5 (probably spam) messages it has received. Of course its totally unsecure (but that's sort of the point), so be careful what you use it for.
