wsxian Re:Orwell (796 comments)

No. Might as well have them read 1984 by Orwell. I disliked those two books.

Ask Slashdot: What Is the Best Distro For Linux Lessons?

wsxian Mepis - because it just works (319 comments)

I would recommend Mepis. The reason is that it just works and its interface is similar to windows. It has a live CD and it installs pretty easily, and again, it just works.

Wildfire Threatens Los Alamos Labs

wsxian Bless our firefighters! (134 comments)

I live at San Ildefonso Pueblo. Los Alamos National Lab is within our aboriginal land rights/claims. We have "Sacred Areas" that abut Los Alamos. While our geographic aims may diverge, I can think of no other people I would like up at the "Hill" (we are at 5500 feet and Los Alamos is over 7000 feet) than the security forces at Los Alamos as well as the firefighters that have come from all over (including many Native Americans). May the Lord protect them and the fire abate. Excuse me, I must pack in case we need to evacuate....

wsxian wsxian writes  |  about 11 years ago I was reading the comments on Robots on this date (July 24, 2003). Nobody mentioned the Robotic Laws put forth by Asimov and whether that would be proper to use or enforce (pass a law to make robotic users have this imprinted on the electronic brains).
