Good job Germany. We should start lobbying Congress to do the same with the Library of Congress.

RIP the Campus Computer Lab, 1960-2009

niner69 Re:Software (571 comments)

I would certainly hope so. Many people simply have no idea what Unix and also Open Source is. Computer labs at University come with WinXP, OS X, and a customized Fedora distro. I personally think its very useful and I definitely use the printing services quite a bit. But at the same time, University requires that I have my own computer (how they enforce this, I don't know), but are committed to keeping computer labs open across campus. I would hope other Universities would also take this stand.

Colbert Report to go Dark

niner69 niner69 writes  |  more than 5 years ago

niner69 (1431193) writes ""Media giant Viacom Inc. said its Nickelodeon, MTV, Comedy Central and 16 other channels will go dark on Time Warner Cable Inc. at 12:01 a.m. Thursday if a new carriage fee deal is not agreed upon by then.

The impasse over carriage fee hikes would mean "SpongeBob" and other shows like "The Daily Show" will be cut off to 13 million subscribers, said spokesman Alex Dudley, a vice president at Time Warner Cable, the nation's second-largest cable operator.""
