Slashdot Tries Something New; Audience Responds!
You seriously have to use Lynx at work? Where do you work, wait are you a time traveler?!?!
Update on the March of Progress: How Slashdot's New Look Is Shaping Up
What everyone above me said. I'm user 71855 and I don't know how far back that goes in terms of years but this is easily the worst iteration of Slashdot I've ever seen and that's saying a lot.
Where Old Hard Disks (with Digital Secrets) Go To Die
EPC does the same thing. Though they don't degauss the drive. They completely destroy it. I am fortunate to have one of their recycling centers in town and believe me there is nothing like watching your hard drives go up a 30 foot conveyor belt into a 30 foot tall shredder and come out as slivers.
I don't work for them, I'm just damn happy they exist. Capitalism at its best, find a need and fill it.
VC Likens Google Bus Backlash To Nazi Rampage
So has Slashdot now become the Socialist News that Matters? This is utter bullshit. All those roads and bridges you all spout about, yes in some cases DOT's built them but most of the time the states realized they didn't know how to do it and hired private contractors to build.
How did they pay those contractors or the DOT's that mostly fill potholes with asphalt....with my freaking tax dollars!
The Federal government does not produce income without taking it from the people who work. These so called 1% are paying 55.85% of their income to taxes to San Francisco California and the Fed. You should be thanking them.
Delude himself that it was his hard work.....I'm am just shocked at the amount of Socialist BS that is flowing in America. Yes, hard work is important. Were there roads before Ford built his first car? Were there bridges built by the government before the locomotive? Why do we have air traffic controllers and the TSA? The car, the train, the airplane...all built by capitalist individuals that then forced the government to respond. The private sector is always ahead of the public. You want a handout you take it...me, I'm going to work as hard as I can, learn as much as I can, help my fellow humans as much as I can and have my voice heard with my vote. The fact that this post got moderated as high as it did is very telling Slashdot.
Ask Slashdot: Command Line Interfaces -- What Is Out There?
I'm with you. Recycled days old articles. Blatant ads being posted as stories. No accountability. And editors who think they can just ignore their detractors even as they grow larger. Oh yeah, high five fellow 70K ID brother/sister.
Could Slashdot (Or Other Private Entity) Sue a Spy Agency Like GCHQ Or NSA?
On October 28, 2013, the Company entered into a new Credit Agreement, which provides for a $50 million term loan facility and a revolving loan facility of $200 million, with both facilities maturing in October 2018. Borrowings under the Credit Agreement bear interest at the Company's option, at a LIBOR rate or base rate plus a margin. The margin ranges from 1.75% to 2.50% on LIBOR loans and 0.75% to 1.50% on base rate loans, determined by the Company's most recent consolidated leverage ratio. Interest rates and covenants in the new Credit Agreement are consistent with the previous Credit Agreement. Quarterly payments of principal are required on the term loan facility, commencing March 31, 2014. The facilities may be prepaid at any time without penalty and payments on the term loan facility result in a permanent reduction. The Company borrowed $65 million under the new Credit Agreement to repay in full all outstanding indebtedness under the previous Credit Agreement, which was terminated upon repayment.

Gabe Newell Talks Linux As the Future of Games at LinuxCon NA
The link he posted showed a grand total of 23 games. One released in 2013, one in 2010 and the rest 2009 all the way back to 1998. I give Steam credit for taking this on and for the prices they are charging but I believe Newell is blowing smoke up Linux user's butt to increase sales.
The Rising Power of Developers
No offense but the first rule of marketing for a software company is "Hide the damn developers and for the love of everything good and sweet do not let them talk to stockholders or customers!"

No, the Tesla Model S Doesn't Pollute More Than an SUV
I drive a 2002 Ford Explorer. The power is amazing. I don't actually spin my wheels because it has sensors that actually "sense" the wheels slipping and locks them down so the vehicle performs better and actually goes forward. I am able to accelerate madly on the freeways and can cruise at the speed limit. The other day a Prius tried to merge into my lane (I can only think it was attracted to my sexy Explorer) and I gently pushed on the gas pedal and went from the speed limit to getting out of its way instantly.
I can also load it with my girlfriend, my dog, her dog and we all have our own space! Not to mention all of her bags of girl stuff, dog food, the grill, charcoal, firewood, tent, generator, portable A/C (I like camping but I love global warming producing air conditioning), lots of meat, and attach a good sized boat (with a 150 hp engine that just spews global warming) and still can gently press the gas pedal and leave you in my dust battery boy.
Defense Distributed Has 3D-Printed an Entire Gun
In major cities here in the US you can call the police and hope they come Chicago or in the rural areas you can wait hours for some type of law enforcement to show up.
This is the UK transposed on Texas
Texas is (along with being awesome) just one of the 50 states we have. You also have 248,950,295 less people than us. There are roughly 1.1 million city, state and federal officers at any given time. In the US in 2010 there were 1.26 million Violent Crimes and in the UK in 2010 there were 2.1 million Violent Crimes

The Dark Side of Amazon's New Pilots
I have one and its the size of a hockey puck. I used Velcro to attach it to the TV stand, you can't even see the HDMI and power cord. I'd love to see your facts about how it is inferior. BTW, I had a three PC Slackware MythTV running in my basement with nine Hapaugge 1600's in my basement for three years before I discovered the Roku. I'd rather I spent $75 on my Roku 2. Free is not always better.
Ask Slashdot: Linux Friendly Video Streaming?
I'm going to spread much Roku love. Amazon instant video, Netflix, Hulu, just about every church sermon in the country, The Blaze, all your premium cable channels, etc. And its a cute little hockey puck.
