Ask Slashdot: Where Do You Stand on Daylight Saving Time?

nogginthenog Re:I'll take that bait (613 comments)

Are you kidding? Most UK high street shops are open until 7-8pm every day, often later on Thursdays.
Most UK supermarkets are open 24/7 (except Sundays when it's 9-4 or 10-5).

Small supermarkets (below a certain size) can open until 10-11pm.

London Unveils New Driverless Subway Trains

nogginthenog Re:Well... (127 comments)

The Northern line has been driverless since 2012. The person who sits in the front just opens & closes the doors (when they are not on strike).

The 2014 Hugo Awards

nogginthenog Re:Novel (180 comments)

HOWEVER!! The Kindle version which I received was full of typos, missing letters and missing words. There were enough mistakes that it passed through annoying and actually affected my ability to follow the story. To their credit the publisher contacted me directly to apologise and asked for examples of mistakes. I've provided some examples but have not heard back, nor do I know how to verify that current versions of the Kindle book have been fixed.

I don't recall any formatting issues in the version I read.
In the past I bought a (self published, I think) Kindle book that was poorly formatted and Amazon refunded it immediately.

I enjoyed Ancillary Justice and am glad Ann Leckie won, but you could tell it's a first novel. Her next novel is out in the next couple of months and will be worth a look at.

Driverless Buses Ruled Out For London, For Now

nogginthenog Re:Driverless trains (84 comments)

The Victoria line has driverless trains since the late 60's, but they still have a 'driver' to open and close the doors. Not sure why this can't be done by platform staff, probably a union thing.

Don't forget to add a SSH private key. Also, I was getting *lots* of failed ssh login attempts on my OpenWrt box. Changing the port to a different number helped.

nogginthenog Re:Now wait (210 comments)

Bought a Kindle book that was terribly formatted. There were no spaces between paragraphs so it was confusing as hell. Complained and Amazon refunded me immediately. +1 to Amazon.
