Atari SD Drive Replaces Floppy Drive
Overwhelmed by a recent wave of nostalgia from playing Zork for the first time in 30 years I have built a working model of an Atari 810 that uses 8Gig microSD cards instead of 5 1/4 inch floppies to emulate up to 8 drives. </p>
Wouldn't be nice to have Apple II SD drive like this?
Copyright laws prevents release of historic jazz recordings
No logic to this. New creations should assume Creative Commons by default and if you want copyright, then you'd have to spend some cash on it.

Wikipedia meets their fundraising goal: $16 million
Network World reports that Wikipedia has successfully reached their $16 million funding requirement for 2011. Looks like Jimmy's face on the front page has done some good after all.
I must agree. Advertising does not belong in Wikipedia:
Commerce is fine. Advertising is not evil. But it doesn't belong here. Not in Wikipedia.
Wikipedia is something special. It is like a library or a public park.

Don't brag about your child's drawing talent
If you are a senseless douchebag having no love or sympathy to the kids, checkout this "I AM BETTER than your kids" website.
Maddox is behind this senseless commentary, demeaning and scorning child's art work by grading it from A to F — is this your type of thing? I've only found F pieces so far.
I was standing around in a co-worker's cubicle at my old job one day, and noticed that she had poorly drawn pictures hanging in her cubicle. So I told her they sucked. She took offense and brought to my attention that it was drawn by her 4-year-old nephew. It changed nothing. In fact, it only strengthened my resolve to grade children's artwork, because I don't think kids should get a free pass for being kids. Coddling children ruins them. Mozart wasn't coddled, and look at him: dead and famous. Most people will only ever accomplish being dead in life. Mozart accomplished two things.
