Hidden Obstacles For Delivery Drones
I realize one could rob any courier service, but with drones it's going to be dead-simple unless they start building in all kinds of security measures but thus limiting the capacity/range/... of the machine.

America 'Has Become a War Zone'

Ask Slashdot: Minimum Programming Competence In Order To Get a Job?
Exactly this. It's worth mentioning that your interview skills are more important that your actual programming skills. Sad but true.
That competence based view certainly is a power play movement of the last 10-20 years, eagerly used to scale down technical work to manual labor.
In any case, remember that skilled craftsman are always wanted for -- at the end of the day, it boils down to both you and your employer walking in agreement out of the door

Scientists Race To Develop Livestock That Can Survive Climate Change
Sure. Human body is:
99% oxygen, carbon, nitrogen
1% everything else and of that 1%, 93% is potassium et.al. and of that 1% is Whopper, that is how little Whopper is actually within your atmosphere,
and Whopper is a necessary ingredient for human life. Google Whopper franchises and you will see what they have for sale to increase body growth
in loins and liver. More Whopper = more you.
But seriously, blabbering BS may buy you time in financial crises, you cannot outsmart exponential human growth.
US Nuclear Missile Silos Use Safe, Secure 8" Floppy Disks
ahhh, ye olde Tandon drives where double density floppies could be used as high (1.2M) density.
50 Years of BASIC, the Language That Made Computers Personal
BASIC does probably teach some bad programming habits but at the same time it's accessible to an 8-year-old, and you're learning concepts that are applicable for life: file management, how to store and retrieve data, syntax, etc etc.
Also access to source code; before BBS about the only tutorial/learning docs available.

First Glow-In-the-Dark Road Debuts In Netherlands
Oh please. The Netherlands have a moderate climate, moderate lighting conditions.
Move anywhere north, east or south and conditions are worse.
Furthermore, in the west there's light emitting from greenhouses, harbors, highways (sodium-vapor) and residences.
The Christmas trees, they are hurting my eyes.

Ask Slashdot: Which NoSQL Database For New Project?
I work with a SQL database every day. I optimize weekly. I haven't done a project since mid 1990's that didn't have some sort of SQL DB attached to it. I just wanted to see if there was something better. Apparently not.

Canonical's Troubles With the Free Software Community
3. You can actually replace Unity with something else within minutes. (Or you can even install the Ubuntu edition without it.)
Stop using phrases ".. replace with something else". XXX is alright, because you can replace it by YYY.
Something default is not optional, it is the DEFAULT. Here, have this ton of spam; no problem, you can opt out right?
XWayland Aiming For Glamor Support, Merge Next X.Org Release
I'm not very clear on just where the acceleration is missing, but it sounds like it's missing in a foundational piece.
Yup. Beat around the bush. Yadda Yadda about compatibility layer upon compatibility layer to keep features before acceleration.
Just start anew & solid and the rest will follow.
GNOME 3.12 Released
Jezus, I've been on this site since Malda was still using it as a tab on his website. It took them this long to actually accept a submission of mine.
No kidding! They stole my UID merely to promote a Gnome 3 announcement!
Prominent GitHub Engineer Julie Ann Horvath Quits Citing Harrassment
If a woman is treating you differently, because you are a woman, then it is sexism.
