Rob "CmdrTaco" Malda Resigns From Slashdot

dark_panda Good ol' slashcode (1521 comments)

I remember installing a copy of slashcode on a Pentium III running Red Hat 6.2 around 11 years ago this summer to run my school labs' bbs system. Somehow I managed to remain sane during that time and I have convinced myself that I am a better programmer and developer for having survived that onslaught of twitchy perl and bash scripts. Thanks Rob teaching me about the virtues of patience in programming and especially when reading other people's code, for slashcode, and especially for slashdot. So long and thanks for all the ponies.

Michael Jackson Themed MMO In the Works

dark_panda Congrats to MJ! (180 comments)

It's nice to see all of this recent publicity for Michael, he's had it pretty rough for the last decade or so. Hopefully he'll be able to capitalize on all of this newfound attention and turn the corner on his financial woes given this huge surge in popularity.

What's that you say? Oh. Sorry to hear that.

Firefox 3.7 Dropped In Favor of Feature Updates

dark_panda Quick date calculations (252 comments)

"Mozilla would roll out Firefox 3.6 and 3.7 over the course of 2009, each bringing minor improvements to the browser. However, a steady stream of delays to Firefox 3.6 has rendered that goal unobtainable."

... ... Okay guys, looks like this math checks out. It seems that releasing Firefox 3.6 and 3.7 in 2009 is an unobtainable goal at this point in time. You know, in 2010.

IE 8 To Include New Security Tools

dark_panda Developer tools (177 comments)

Personally I'd be more interested in some decent developer tools. Specifically things like a JavaScript profiler and debugger. I know there are a few third party tools that kinda-sorta do this, but frankly they're all pretty horrible, at least compared to their Firefox equivalents. Give me Firebug and Venkman for IE and I'll be happy.
