Judge: US Search Warrants Apply To Overseas Computers

junktext Re: Finally! (502 comments)

Why can't the U.S. authorities just ask the Irish police for assistance? I mean Ireland isn't exactly a lawless country. Thus, I agree with Microsoft in that U.S. warrants are only binding in U.S. territories.

The Guy Who Unknowingly 'Live-Blogged' the Bin Laden Raid

junktext Re:Pretty Interesting (142 comments)

I hear you. But, you could create that story about the cops as a "historical analysis"! I'd read it and I think others should too in order to judge how well their authorities are competently applying justice. I think in some ways the article about the Bin Laden blogger was most interesting in how he criticized the media later on, which couldn't have been easily made into a news story at the time.

Hmm, that's kind of a neat story actually. Not sure what's with all the negative comments.

Ask Slashdot: What Video Games Keep You From Using Linux?

junktext Linux Gaming Request: Half-Life 1 & Dawn of Wa (951 comments)

Yup, seriously. I still play on the Half-Life 1 engine (Natural Selection 1 and Team Fortress Classic) and I still love Dawn of War 1.

If these ran natively on Linux, I would be using Linux constantly. Yes, I know Wine can generally run both games, but I've tried it and there are some glitches and other annoyances that were not present when playing on Windows (i.e., Alt+Tab, sound problems, and added CPU latency).

National Library Service Plans Next-Gen Audiobooks

junktext Re:why even go to the library? (110 comments)

And how many times have you seen an elderly person on the internet, or on a computer for that matter? I know my grandparents don't even have a computer.. so it makes it easier for them to actually 'pick' up the audio books. And if you want to read books online you can always check out Project Gutenberg,
