BrewPi: Raspberry Pi and Arduino Powered Fermentation Chamber
BEER is good. BEER should be studied in school. BEER should be required for graduation. BEER should be in the home. BEER should be promoted for the betterment of society. BEER is good for everyone of all ages.
With regards to beer, I prefer it to be:
And from my brewery! London brown ale keg foamed out Saturday. Tapped Red Ale that same day. Porter #112 in fermentor now. A bit of the Blind Toad Stout (12.5% and fantastic!) is still hiding in the back of the beer fridge.
Ask Slashdot: CS Degree Without Gen-Ed Requirements?
So you're too lazy or disinterested to bother to learn those skills that will make you tolerable as an adult. The ability to work your way through something you have to do yet are not interested in is the critical sign of maturity that you will be lacking when you are facing a job task you have little to no interest in. It is my fervent hope that you don't lose interest in wiping your butt, bathing and other things that distract you from your single-minded existence.
Good luck with that.
I Name My Servers After:
porter, stout, wit, ipa, etc
windows machines were named after english and non-english words/slang for "shit".
then I cleaned out the "shit" and no longer posses any windows machines.
Embed a Video, Go To Jail?
I am astounded that the /. crowd has not been calling for an absolute boycott of ALL media from ALL labels who sign on to these kinds of bills.
Put down the mp3 player and streaming video toys and pick up an instrument. If you want entertainment, get creative and make your own. Then you can do all the sharing you want with content you make.
Like it or not, whining about "they are taking away my perceived rights" on /. will have no effect on the people who are writing this legislation. But if the people who are supposed to be paying for this content all say loudly in one voice "Your content is crap and I don't want it" and then grow a pair and stick to their convictions and DON'T WATCH THE CONTENT FROM THE PEOPLE WHO ARE BACKING THIS LEGISLATION IN ANY FORM, the loss of 10-20 million viewers will have an impact the longer it keeps up. The only language those people understand is cash. They think they are getting less than they deserve so they buy votes. We outnumber them so remind them they exist because we allow them to. It's not like your life will end if you don't hear/view the latest "thing".
Besides, if /. started looking around and something other than the media content this is about, you might notice there's a lot of stuff that geeks can do to keep crap like this from expanding.
Walk away. Nothing to see here. Literally
My phone is ...
can't call 911!!!!
All the gadgets on it cause it to overheat and burst into flames!!!
Ask Slashdot: How Prepared Are You For a Major Emergency?
the bullets are for thinning out the competition for food.
Ask Slashdot: How Prepared Are You For a Major Emergency?
Does having a list of all know vegetarians within 2 miles count as a food source? :-)
I do have several days worth of canned food on hand at all times along with dried beans and rice for weeks. Canned turkey spam. Yum! I also have 3 days worth of water in a series of jugs that I do cycle through to keep them "fresh". Plus batteries (hidden from my 12 year old gamer) and a Coleman camp stove with 6 jugs of fuel. Add tents, sleeping bags good to well below freezing, many back packs, several first aide kits, and few items of ID/deed/title nature in a fast grab pack in the safe with the arsenal and ammo. What I don't have is fuel cans and carriers for the car and enough spare dog food. The cats will likely have to fend for themselves as they will scatter while the dogs will clump around us. Plus the hip flask with single malt scotch for emergencies!
My tools are usually scattered all over the house so a fast grab and run of those is likely to be fatal to me in many emergency types (fire, tornado, zombie uprising, etc).
Red Hat Paid $4.2m To Settle Patent Suit
RedHat settles a lawsuit and obtained the ability to continue to include code that was found to be patented by others. RedHat paid the cash and in exchange the code is now available under the GPL v. with no further repercussions either upstream towards developers or downstream towards JBoss users. Did they license the code with that cash? That's not what it looks like. It looks like the cash was paid as a penalty and the legal team at RedHat made sure that was all that would ever be paid for the use of that. Did RedHat buy the license with that cash? Not sure but that is allowed in the GPL (my understanding at least. IANAL).
Debian Is the Most Important Linux
I read the article not as Debian is the most important distro but rather is Debian is the most likely to cause people to say "I can do better than that" and then expend the energy to do so. The RedHat derivatives are far fewer in numbers because RH does such a good job of covering all the bases people want to see in a distro. That is to say, RedHat users are more satisfied with the efforts of RedHat than Debian users are with the efforts of the Debian community.
That said, Debian is an outstanding community distro whereas RedHat is an outstanding enterprise distro. Use each appropriately for best effect.
I'd rather my paycheck be denominated in ...
I want it in some form of energy. That's the only "common factor" unit of exchange that actually makes sense. It kicks the speculators to the street, it's stable and tangible. It brings inflation to 0 as the "value" of the currency never changes. It makes real "fair trade" possible as every one can see the cost and value transparently.
Besides, what we buy with our paycheck is basically energy. Food, toys, transportation, etc. By working all transactions in energy units, it bypasses many forms of currency manipulation.
Order of importance if disaster strikes?

- guns & ammo, food, loved ones, data, other
- food, fuel, fighting tools, other
- loved ones get their own guns and help get food, other

Judge Rejects SCO's Motion For a New Trial
The head of Daryl McBride is seen in court appealing the latest decision against SCO which declared Daryl McBride not eligible for compensation for inclusion into Futurama episodes on the grounds that he is "just wasting space now that other more important heads need shelf space for. Like Tiger Woods 9th wife" said Leyla. Bender, while trying to get McBride to bite his shiny metal ass, broke the head jar and dropped the head of McBride accidentally into a metal stamping machine. The head of Pam Jones laughed her jar fluid into a total froth while Fry looked on confused.
