$7.2 million of intangible assets and $6.3 million of goodwill related to Slashdot Media
and have only started to realize some improvement on related sites. With ad revenue declining and not expected to pick up (read: everyone who uses Slashdot uses adblocking softwarwe), it appears that the Slashdot stewardship experiment by Dice Holdings has been a financial failure.
Since the site has been redesigned in a user-hostile fashion with a very generic styling, this reader surmises Dice Holdings is looking to transform or transfer the brand into a generic Web 3.0 technology property.

I actually went for 5 days without sleep and the hallucinations started by that last day. I was seeing this same old man seemingly follow me around. I would feel invisible people watching me, it was not a good experience. I felt like crap through most of it like a full body fuzzy feeling. After day 3, i couldn't really get sleepy. It was interesting but the day after I finally slept was the most painful. I wouldn't do that again for sure.
