Linux May Succeed Windows XP As OS of Choice For ATMs

flinxmeister Re:What about OS/2? (367 comments)

ADA was only one reason. The main reason was OS/2 was EOL and they couldn't really do anything with it. You haven't truly loathed an OS until you waited an hour for an ATM to boot, only to find out the next config change would require another reboot. ...and you had 5 more config changes to make.

Images of Endeavour's Damaged Tiles

flinxmeister "flying brickyard" (331 comments)

I remember as a kid seeing the pictures of the early shuttle missions where many, many tiles were missing. IIRC, it was called the "flying brickyard". Can't seem to find any of those pictures now.

But it seems like our shuttle program is suddenly pansified. I mean c'mon...there's a difference between blowing a hole in the wing and a few flaky tiles.
