Bas Bas It finds lightbulbs.
  • 'Second Earth' found, 20 light years away

    I always wondered. What if teleportation meant that you would disintegrate and die, but a perfect clone of yourself (including memories and personality) came out on the other end? How would you warn people that teleportation is lethal?

    Let's not be too hasty. Let's focus on just lightspeed for now. Tongue Out

  • Fred: You Voted, We Listened

    Huh, great. If I had known that the poll would be closed by now, I would've voted no earlier, because I still don't have a clue why Fred deserves to go more than anyone else on the waiting list.

  • Vista Help: Guided help - "Do it ​automatical​ly"

    Whoa, I never even noticed that before. I should spend more time in Windows Help.

    At first I thought it was just, like, a little demo. Until I realised that it was interactive. Very nice.

    Will this ever end?

    Tip: when you get a blog, try to write actual articles, rather than randomly posting some headlines, exerpts and links.

  • Kryptonite found!


    An until now unknown mineral was found in a mine in Serbia, matching the exact chemistry as that of Kryptonite as described in Superman Returns.

    Unfortunately, it's not green, glowing, or lethal, but still.

  • Vista = ME II?

    Anyone who thinks of Vista as the next Windows ME clearly doesn't know what he/she is talking about.

    That doesn't mean, though, that the leap that Vista made isn't as great as was anticipated. It's still a great leap, but I think we had all hoped for more. Also, the abundance of small bugs like the explorer and calendar bugs are annoying. Driver support is prepostorous. I realise that this isn't Microsoft's fault, but they could at least stop handing out certifications to manufacturers (Nvidia, Creative..) until they actually produced something that worked.

  • Windows feedback - where?

    True. I'm wondering if anyone is actually aware of that calendar bug.

  • Fred: You Voted, We Listened

    I'm going for no. I don't know the guy and don't hold him any grudges, but if any of us asked the same thing, we wouldn't get special treatment either.

    I'm willing to change my vote to yes if Fred can tell us what he can do for C9 there. He's a reporter, let him report to us. Perhaps some exclusive, early content for C9? Tough for Wired, but hey, some back-scratching never hurt anybody.

    He doesn't necessarily have to post here (although that would be courteous, and the best way for him to explain why he should go) but perhaps he could talk to Jeff. I want to stress though that this should be a benefit to the community. You guys are asking the community if he should get helped onto Mix, then let him do something for the community. And this doesn't mean a single 30 minute video.

    Also, if he can post in this thread and explain clearly how his getting onto mix would help this community, it'd be real easy to point any "M$ GIVES REPORTERS TEH SPECIAL TREATMENT!" trolls to this thread and explain that this primarily benefitted the community, not MS per se.

    So, yeah, I might vote yes, but until I hear more, I'm going for a resounding no. Too bad, many people were late for the list.
