    MySpace For Sale In The Bargain Bin

    MySpace pages being hard to read and sometimes just plain annoying was a big part of why it lost to Facebook. Probably even bigger was the fact that it didn't have feeds; there was no central place to see what your friends were doing (that I ever saw), it required you go to each person's page...

    The First Zombie-Proof House

    So we collect them, immobilizing and storing most while using just what we need. When one wears out, we unbox another one to put in its place. Obviously this shouldn't be done where the zombies can bust out of their crates and flood the complex. Proper precautions can be taken.

    Linux Adds 10K Users Overnight

    If free software projects want to be competitive with Microsoft, they need to pay attention to the "bashing" they get and take the criticisms to heart. Here's an example: In Excel, I can CTRL+click multiple unconnected cells and modify their properties or paste a value into them at the same...

    MySpace For Sale In The Bargain Bin

    With MySpace you could just throw on an ugly template and then spam it up with pictures and nonsense. GeoCities' use of HTML meant you actually had to LEARN something to butcher it.

    I don't know anything about XFX, but I'll definitely form an opinion if I win this :)

    Linux Adds 10K Users Overnight

    No, Windows survives because it is heavily used in business. You can't even switch most offices from MS Office to OpenOffice without workers screaming bloody murder...and I don't blame them, as good as it is OOo isn't nearly as easy to use or efficient as MSO. This is after personally two years...

    MySpace For Sale In The Bargain Bin

    MySpace was the Geocities of the last decade. It made it easier for people to make atrocious-looking sites that no one else wanted to look at. Facebook did it right by taking the design choices away from the user, preventing page after page of glitter text, eye-searing backgrounds, and annoying...

    The First Zombie-Proof House

    And speakers to broadcast the Mario theme music (yes I know that's not a Mario reference, but more people would get the joke)

    The First Zombie-Proof House

    I've seen one in the past few years, and she very briefly handed me a pamphlet and invited me to Easter service. Best JW visit I've ever had.

    The First Zombie-Proof House

    Lasers are always a bad idea. One malfunction and you've burned a hole in your house and zombies are streaming in. NEVER leave yourself open to the stupidity of others or the imperfections of technology. That's the quickest way to death by zombie (well, second quickest, after lack of cardio)...

    The First Zombie-Proof House

    Interesting idea. Seeing as the zombies seem to have an infinite energy source, you could task them with turning turbines... all it would take is a human for them to pursue and the generator is turned indefinitely. Once you establish what it is they pursue--sight, smell, sound, whatever--you can...

    The First Zombie-Proof House

    So build this on top of an old nuke silo.

    The First Zombie-Proof House

    I'd have some modifications to make so that it didn't look like a prison to passersby, but it's surprisingly not horrible. If you really want it zombie-proof, you'll need a few things: A garden on the roof solar cells that can power everything you need to be comfortable a deep well for...

    Goofy USB Devices of the Day

    Just in case your USB key wasn't likely enough to be stolen (and I've seen them stolen before), they've made it look like a consumer electronics product someone might REALLY want to steal.
