The New Slash, or the Remade Dot

I’ve been looking for something small to post lately. Just a bit of news to fire me back into regular posting.

Visiting Slashdot this morning gave me that impetus.

Go visit. Slashdot has a New Look. From my first initial impressions, it’s pretty sweet.

Again, very initial impressions.

It seems mostly cosmetic, on the front page. The format hasn’t changed, so much as the Look’N’Feel. Which is important. That old argument.

All the little widget’s they have been adding over the years finally look really nice. The polls, the extra bits of side info .. no longer square and clunky .. but round and shaded. Mmmmmm. Mmmmmmmm.

So that’s my first post back for a while. I’ve got a bunch in Drafts, but they haven’t seemed to click together.


How Many Slashdot Rejections?

The thought came to me, I’ve only been blogging for a few months, and haven’t been going hard yakka posting to Slashdot, so there must be others out there with much larger rejection numbers that me.

I’m sitting, as of right now, on 10 Rejections and 1 Pending.

Please note, this is in no way a whinge or flame on Slashdot. They’re doing a great job, and I love their Why didn’t you post my story? reasons. Specially the last one.

Anyway, how many Rejections have you gotten from Slashdot.

And have you kept going, especially if they are your own articles/posts?

Cheers, Thanks for Reading.

Edit: Make that 11 Rejections. Heh heh.
