I don't own a fishing boat because if I want fish I'll just buy it at the store. Why do fishing boats even still exist?

Hotel Chain Plans Phone-Based Check-in and Room Access

rhodium_mir Re:Fucking anti-social Millennials (120 comments)

I love the self checkouts. I don't want to have to talk to some pretty young lady working the register when it's Saturday night and I'm buying a frozen pizza and a bottle of lube.

New Toyota Helps You Yell At the Kids

rhodium_mir Re: minivan dead? (205 comments)

>It gets better gas mileage (28mpg) than almost all SUVs

That isn't very good compared to an SUV (Is that really the best that a minivan can get? I thought there would be at least one outlier that could best an SUV):

Those aren't SUVs. They're passenger cars with lift kits installed.

Sony Forgets To Pay For Domain, Hilarity Ensues

rhodium_mir Re:Black hole? (277 comments)

Network Solutions offers kinda-sorta-100 year registration. Technically it's just a ten year registration that they automatically renew for you every ten years, but it still would've saved Sony a lot of trouble in this case.

Network Solutions price chart

20 and 100 Year Domain Registration Service - If the domain name registry of a particular third level domain does not provide for an initial registration term of 20 or 100 years, then Network Solutions will register your domain name on your behalf for the maximum term available at the respective registry, and as long as your domain name is registered with us, we will continue to add additional years to your registration on an annual basis up to the total of 20 or 100 years, depending upon the term you select from the date of purchase.

rhodium_mir Re:Who couldn't see this coming? (300 comments)

Of course, in the slashdot world microsoft has been going out of business since 2002.
