Slashdot Tries Something New; Audience Responds!
I hadn't looked at beta before this fantastic storm in a teacup, so I thought, what the hell I have to try it. It's a bit different, and a bit more modern. I cannot for the life of me understand why you are all so upset.
I actually switched over to beta now, and probably won't think more of it (unless i see more of these childish f**k beta posts...) /Hans
What Is Your Favorite Halloween Treat?
"It's an acquired taste"
If you don't like it, you are weak ;)
Michael Dell Dismisses Tablet Threat To the PC Market
Ok, but you start out with saying:
What makes you think he was ever all that smart?
I sure as hell think he is smart, but he probably also had a bit of luck. I think all successful business leaders have a bit of both. They haven't shown innovation in their products, but definitely in their channel selection and logistics.
Books I bought to read, but haven't yet:
I was in a book store the other day, and I look at all the books, and I get pretty much the same feeling:
"ooohhh....so many books that need to be read."
But is isn't anxiety, it is more futility and despair...
Reminded me of this comic strip from Berke Breathed: http://www.northstarnerd.org/.a/6a00d8341c5fd253ef0120a5e93468970b-450wi
Science and Religion Can and Do Mix, Mostly
Religion is simply your own personal reason that you do X.
No, that would be more like philosophy. I do not have a religion, but I do have reasons for why I do X. And no, atheism is not a religion.
I Name My Servers After:
...such as buddha, jesus, muhammed.
Fictional people in other words ;)

US To Host World Press Freedom Day
Someone should nominate Assange to UNESCO/Guillermo Cano World Press Freedom Prize 2011
Imagine if he would have to get parol from a US prison to attend?
Given one free trip to the past in a time machine, I would..
Sure, speaking another language like that must be almost as hard to find a solution to as, i don't know, building a time machine?
Newborns' Blood Used To Build Secret DNA Database
and usually medical databases are quite thoroughly tied down in this respect.
I don't know much about this case, but in Sweden we have a national test for all newborns, where they collect blood to check for a few diseases (PKU, the google is your friend). When they have checked it, they store the information "for research purposes".
When our minister of foreign affairs was killed, the Police requested samples from the database and got them.
So, don't count on the database staying "for research purposes"...
Mad Scientist Brings Back Dead With "Deanimation"

The rest will starve.
I think you and I have a different definition of "a problem".
