    Fox: Wonderfalls on DVD?

    You should check out www.savewonderfalls.com. They have a nice forum there now. Also, Bryan Fuller wrote a letter that says that chances are pretty good that a cable network would pick up the show. They have postcards that you can print and mail to networks. They also have a lot of contact...

    How do you read the HTF?

    I can't read this with out a tabbed browser like firefox or mozilla. I open DIY, Interiors, and AfterHours into their own tabs (middle click). Then I go into each and open each thread that looks interesting into it's own tab. Then I read, sometimes reply, and close the thread/tab when I am done...

    Building my first house! What should I do for a home theater room + other questions

    ...Only slightly related but the electricians installed one of the pull pipes parallel to an electric wire (parallel for a span of about 6 to 7 feet). They tried to tell me that the PVC pipe would shield the data cable but I was skeptical. I verified with another electrician and others that PVC...

    Building my first house! What should I do for a home theater room + other questions

    Kyle, I am in a similar situation. My wife and I are having our first home built right now. My house is framed and has the heating and ductwork in place at this point. There is about 2 months to go before we get to move in. I have about 500 pictures on the web of the process so far...

    How to protect my web images from theives?

    As has been said before the only solution is to not post your pictures publicly. You can disable right clicking and toolbars all you want but that accomplishes nothing. Just look at the source of the page (and no it is not possible to block this either, the idea makes no sense), find the URL...

    Is a Degree in the Computer Field Still a Good Option?

    First let me admit to not reading every post in this thread. Now, on to my advice. I am 24 and graduated in 2001 but could be considered as working professionally for 3 years. When I was in college I was saddened by the number of CS students that were getting their degree "because there...

    Any (former) musicians give up their instrument?

    I am in almost the same position. I bought my first guitar when I was 14 or 15. Once I went to college, the amount of time I spent playing rapidly declined. WHen I graduated it continued to decline. I have played for about 1 hour in the last year :frowning: Right now I am looking to sell my...

    Programmers Beware!

    I guess that's why I call myself a code monkey... I'll let the REAL monkeys use VB. I'll continue with c, c++, java, perl, bash, etc... Greg

    I am pretty much with Scott on this thread. I got into it when I was in 6th grade and my brother bought ...And Justice For All. That is still my favorite CD of all time. I was there opening day to buy "the black album". I was VERY disappointed by it. After Justice Metallica was a completely...

    A question for Slashdot readers

    I am a regular reader of slashdot. I always read the comments for interesting headlines. You can easily filter out noise by reading only comments that have been moderated to +4 or more. Slashcode has a LOT of features. Don't forget that every slashdot reader has a journal, lists of friends...
