I can't believe people still use this thing.
Because? Why can't you believe it? - Johnny from iPhone
A fairly strong few communities, actually. - Julian
If you want a serious answer. "I'm here for the people. Not the logo or the social media credibility. Where my friends are, so go I". - Johnny from iPhone
What Johnny said. - Betsy from FFHound(roid)!
It's just.... this place hasn't received a single update in like... 4 years. - Ben Parr
Very rarely though .. - Bo Stern
Ben, that's actually a good thing. No one ever complains about UI changes they don't like. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Does it work? Yes. WHY does it need an update? If the content and the people are of good quality, why does the UI or function matter. - Johnny from iPhone
what thing ? Its not a thing ?? its a network of friends with deep connections. updates? no we are happy with no updates. No Algo pushing, results pushing .. blah blah.. its straight forward no BS app !! - Peter Dawson
I can't believe people still use this thing http://www.intercleanhygiene.co.uk/media... Hasn't received a single update in decades. - naltro
Always chasing the "new" rather than the "good" is a hallow existence. You have shallow connections. It's akin to rejecting your favourite pizza because the packaging hasn't changed. - Johnny from iPhone
Such old. Such good. - Not Me
Well thank you all for explaining the appeal to me. Still shocked, but I also see why Fb has kept FF running. - Ben Parr
No updates and it still kills Google +, in my opinion. - Spidra Webster
I would also say that while places like Google+ and Facebook add new "features" etc, it can be a bit overwhelming and complex. There are times when I appreciate the simplicity and democracy here (no up voting comments etc) ala IRC (which still has a strong community). The content is king. Bells and whistles less so - Johnny from iPhone
“I'm not going to change the way I look or the way I feel to conform to anything. I've always been a freak. So I've been a freak all my life and I have to live with that, you know. I'm one of those websites." - Micah from FFHound(roid)!

So...do we not get cicadas in California?
Do you have a Chinatown? - Eivind
In San Francisco. - Mary Carmen from iPhone
Nope no cicadas in CA - Steve C
I don't think the ranges of any of the periodical cicada broods includes California. I think they're all in the east and midwest. - John (bird whisperer)
this thing is cool for figuring it out: http://www.cicadamania.com/where... - Jenica
Eivind. - Bren from iPhone
Oh, that is pretty neat! I don't think I'd heard (or heard of) cicadas until I moved to DC. - Jennifer Dittrich
they are fiction! - kendrak
They are all over southern Europe. Also enjoyed their "noise" when I lived in Florida. Actually kinda miss them here in CA .. - Bo Stern
It looks like we do have cicada species, just not the long-period biblical plague-like ones http://essig.berkeley.edu/documen... - Victor Ganata from iPhone

US-bound Samsung Galaxy Note gains NFC support, early CM9 build, may be headed to Sprint
Cool, so likely with Google Wallet support :) - Bo Stern from Bookmarklet
Oh, I need that. Finally a worthy upgrade to the Samsung Epic 4G on Sprint. The only thing that can make me give up the physical keyboard is a sufficiently large display, such as this. Also about the largest thing you can pocket. - Adrian
Exactly my take as well. Being able to stretch your fingers around both sides (to hold it like a phone) is a primary form factor requirement, which the Note exactly does, pretty much to the limit. - Bo Stern

Google vows to fight suit over mobile 'Wallet'
Google on Friday rejected a charge that it swiped PayPal trade secrets to build its new mobile application that turns a smartphone into an electronic wallet. Within hours of the unveiling of "Google Wallet" on Thursday, eBay and PayPal filed a lawsuit charging the Internet giant tapped into the online financial transaction service's know-how for the mobile payments project. - Bo Stern from Bookmarklet

The company that wouldn't give me an interview? The one whose exec was curt to me at an industry expo? 4 of their employees died in a test flight of their new jet today. Jet destroyed. Feeling so fly like a G6 EL OH EL.
Don't ever deny me anything. I will never forget. - LANjackal
Not really funny. - Not Me
As I said, don't mess with me. I do not forget. - LANjackal
Didn't mean it as a warning. But I do enjoy schadenfreude. - LANjackal
Ha, so the real you is back. - LANjackal
I'm sorry, but are you honestly celebrating the death of four innocent people because the company they happened to work for wouldn't give you an interview? - Monique the crochet freak
You finna block me? Go head - LANjackal
No they wouldn't. And I'm no longer interested in them anyway. My revenge, however, is complete. Thank you, Universe. - LANjackal
So are you taking credit for killing 4 people, because that's kind of what it's starting to sound like. - Not Me
That's a ridiculous conclusion. I am celebrating a bad turn for people who rejected me as an act of the Universe. I had nothing to do with the event in question. - LANjackal
Extremely offensive! - Bo Stern
And you're making light of the fact that 4 people, who were otherwise innocents as far as you should be concerned, died. I'd be fine with this if they lost a prototype, but people's lives were lost, and they didn't do shit to you. Don't be a stupid fuck, and be a man, with some fucking respect. - Not Me
I admit my anger exceeds my capacity for rational thought right now. You do make a good point and are in fact correct. - LANjackal

20 petaflops: New supercomputer for Oak Ridge facility to regain speed lead over the Chinese
The Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) campus in Oak Ridge Tennessee will soon play host once again to the fastest computer in the world (barring any new sudden announcements by the Chinese). The computer, dubbed "Titan" has been commissioned by the U.S. Department of Energy, and is expected to achieve 20,000 trillion calculations (20 petaflops) per second. - Bo Stern from Bookmarklet
