The first revision of a new essay, "What Makes Software High-Quality?" (with a focus on open-source software) was added to the essays section:
The Program is Available for Downloading or Buying
That may seem like a silly thing to say, but you'll be surprised how many times people get it wrong. How many times have you seen web-sites of software that claim that the new version of the software (or even the first) is currently under work, will change the world, but is not available yet? How many times have you heard of web-sites that are not live yet, and refuse to tell people exactly what they are about?
More text has been added to the screenplay "Star Trek, We the Living Dead":
Katie: Professor Shlomo Abramovich? You're King Solomo... Errr... I'm not talking with you again. [Goes to sit on the Swing, frustrated.]
Shlomo: Mosheh, remember I told you about Katie?
Mosheh: oh yeah! She looks cute when she's angry.
Katie: Moses, right?
Mosheh: that's right.
Katie: well, in case you've had any interest in me, I should note that I have a policy against getting involved with people who are 4 times my senior or more.
Mosheh: relax! I have married girls who were 15 times my junior or more and my own descendants, and retrospectively I can tell that many of them were more mature and rational than I was in most respects.
a new question and answer has been added to the FAQ about why I don't obscure my email address.
Added a note about the site's hosting provider, and a link to this page from the front page.
Added a "Slashdot this" badge to the bottom of the text of all the pages, next to the "Bookmark This" button.
