Russian Scientist Claims Signs of Life Spotted On Venus
...that someone found and interesting chemical compound is the atmosphere or some other evidence of microscopic life on Venus, instead this guy claims he sees a "black flap" in pictures from the 80's. The article itself doesn't even have pictures with red circles around these flying magic aliens for me to gawk at and laugh about. I'm not only questioning Slashdot, but the original story, why would anyone care?
US Gov't Orders 73,000 Private Websites Offline
Like the history now being created of seizing private property without due process that may or may not actually reside outside of American sovereignty?
Lord of the Rings Online To Go Free-To-Play
Well if it means anything, all PVP is completely voluntary in DDO, most of what you can pay for, is either time saving items (exp percentage bonuses) or content and the fact that every dungeon is instanced means you can simply play how and with whom you please.
Warner Bros. Acquires Turbine
Toontown is the brain child of Jesse Schell the same guy who freaked everybody out with his games in everything speech is it not.
I'll admit I read it that way too
Was I the only one who expected this to look like a racing pit-stop (screws being driven into a rack mount like lug-nuts on a new set of tires)
T-Mobile's First HSPA+ Modem Goes On Sale Sunday
Well I live in the Philly Metro area, I'll keep you in mind if it doesn't pan out.
Why anyone would pick Philadelphia as a launch city is beyond me. That's like recruiting beta testers from the Special Olympics.
Google Rejects Australian Censorship Proposal
Exactly, Google is grand standing against the much less menacing Australian Government. The only reason pulled out of China was a) they were the kings of the internet like they are back home and b) an attack that came from China (potentially).
PR move in my mind
House Overwhelmingly Passes Cybersecurity Bill
I can assure you, that you will be disappointed in all of these things if you given them.
Saying No To Promotions Away From Tech?
Agreed, you have to take. Even if they weren't planning on paying you for on call duty. The key word above is "new" as in "a new manager". Sounds like you are either going to become useful in the way this new manager wants you to be, or you will quickly become an example of the fact that this manager is willing to let go people who aren't following his plan.
SarBox Lawsuit Could Rewrite IT Compliance Rules
It'd be nice if they were irrelevant, unfortunately all they are managing to do is drive up the cost of everything the government pays for and shield incompetent and even dangerous employees working for the government while providing no protection for the american worker from big business.
Or at least that is how they work in America, that and they bury Jimmy Hoffa in Giants Stadium.
Leaked Modern Warfare 2 Footage Causes Outrage
Difference? I don't know, I've been ducking trial at the Hague ever since I sacked Carthage in Rome: Total War
Mass Arrests of Journalists Follow Iran Elections
How do you say "amateurs" in Mandarin?
UK Police Want Plug-In Computer Crime Detectors
...and of course the companion software that will produce false positives on infect computers.
Flying Car Flies From London To Africa
And then you have the slashdot headline which sounds like the setup for a 4chan joke.
It flies from London to Africa
Marijuana Could Prevent Alzheimer's, New Study
This would probably be handled exactly the way it's handled if somebody's drinking gets in the way of work. Treatment if it's a touchy-feelie company, termination if it's a draconian company, or indifference if it's an average company. To be honest most of your argument would be identical if you replaced "smoking pot" with "being a sober idiot". I don't think anybody would suggest we can really legislate idiocy with any hope of success either.
Fallout 3 DLC Detailed
Fallout games have always had a 20-level cap. This is the 3rd fallout game in the series. You'd expect its game mechanics to follow the other two, even if it is in 3d and not 2d isometric.
I would expect it to follow the previous game mechanics. Unfortunately the other games do not all cap at twenty. I remember clearly going well past 20 in FO2 after discovering the in game strategy guide.
Ballmer Sets Loose Windows 7 Public Beta At CES
However, even for the "most hated" award, it's a tight race between ME and Vista. I'd say the hatred of ME is more intense, while the hate for Vista is more widespread.
I don't know, YOU seem like a nice enough guy. Though your self important need to have references to YOU in all caps is a little annoying.
Twitter Hack Details Revealed
Overrated, really? I thought it was hilarious even if it was crude and cynical.
Avoiding Wasted Time With Prince of Persia
Excellent point, maybe you shouldn't call a game without the chance for a failure a game at all. And while you (or anyone for that matter) "playing" without risk of failure doesn't make you a bad person, it does strongly imply that you are not that good at video games. I think this topic is more about revealing psychology thru games then people seem to realize.
Visual Hallucinations Are a Normal Grief Reaction
"Occam's Razor" is a useless tool as it relies on a mind to subjectively decide what is "likely" and than declare it as objective.
Being a skeptic requires you to be skeptical of everything, otherwise you are just a different type of adherent.
