Ask Slashdot: Where Can You Get a Good 3-Button Mouse Today?

madsen Evoluent Vertical mouse (429 comments)

A few years ago I broke my right hand and with the cast I could not twist my hand and arm so that I could have used a conventional mouse. So I got an Evoluent vertical mouse. I've stuck with it since because I no longer have a mouse hand and the mouse does have a fully funcctional correctly placed middle button. It also has a scroll wheel but most importantly, it also is in the right place.
Logitech isreally good at making wonky speciality mice that are almost perfect but then there is something that completely puts you off and they refuse to do anything about it. It's works, we won't fix it.

madsen Re:Optional extensions? (180 comments)

There is ofcourse the problem that using SSL makes it much harder for us to inspect the traffic for malware, bots, and whatnot.

Proving 0.999... Is Equal To 1

madsen Re:Humans are just biased towards natural numbers (1260 comments)

But do natural numbers even exist in the real

No they don't.

Let's take your brain as an example. Since natural numbers do not exist, you cannot have one brain. Judging from your post, the actual number of brains you have is less than one but hopefully it is more than ½

Fortunately for you we like rounding which means that you will be seen as having exactly one brain, although in case the real number of brains you have is less than ½ you would end up with no brain at all. I think posting on slashdot does require some sort of brain so you should be safe. Or does it require the lack of a brain...

Natural numbers are called natural because they are ... natural.

Proving 0.999... Is Equal To 1

madsen Re:And if (1260 comments)

Your statement that 1=0! is actually true but your proof is wrong. The factorial of 0 is 1 so 1=0! or 0!=1

The Apple Paradox, Closed Culture & Free-Thinking Fans

madsen OS/FS has produced N900 (945 comments)

If you love your iPhoney there is nothing that I can say that will change you're mind, it's the stockholm syndrome. I was close to getting one myself, but then Nokia released the N900 which, without having open hardware, is as a very open phone. After this I won't get a new phone unless I can open a terminal, do some apt-get'ting and ssh into it!

madsen The Land of the free (181 comments)

When will you see that was used to be the land of the free suddenly has become what Orwell predicted, although he was off by some 20 years.
I'd say that at this point Osama is getting what he was after in the first case, to destroy the westerners "paradise".
