Blackboard Buys Moodlerooms and Netspot

ylikone Re:they can continue for now... (95 comments)

I don't see how this can kill Moodle, as they are not buying Moodle, just 2 of its partners. There are over 50 partners world-wide that provide funding for Moodle development. They will never get the largest Moodle partner, www.remote-learner.net, who are dedicated to open source.

Laptop Heat May Cause 'Toasted Skin Syndrome'

ylikone Testicular cancer (195 comments)

My cousin blames his testicular cancer on a decade of using a laptop resting over his crotch. Even though cancer does not run in his family (or mine) and I don't think I believe the laptop is to blame, it could be that it aggravated it.

Time To Dump XP?

ylikone Migrating to Ubuntu (1213 comments)

Everyone at my company was still using XP until a few months ago when some management changed to Win7... doesn't look like the rest of us will be getting Win7 licenses anytime soon so I've decided to migrate to Ubuntu. I've been using Linux on my desktop at home since 2000 so I'm quite comfortable with it and I can't think of anything that I would absolutely require that would keep on the Windows platform. Besides, Wine can probably handle whatever issues come up.

HP Explains Why Printer Ink Is So Expensive

ylikone Only the ignorant still using inkjets (651 comments)

Inkjets are a complete waste of money. Get yourself a b&w laser printer for document printing and go get any photos you want printed over to your local grocery store (via SD card or whatever) where you can get them printed for cheap. I try explaining this to some people but they don't seem to get it and would still rather waste money on ink and glossy paper.

Denon's $499 Ethernet Cable

ylikone Audiophools (719 comments)

Products like this are proof that audiophiles are not very intelligent and easily swayed to buying things they do not need.
