    slashdot = visitor explosion = bandwidth limit exceeded = GP32X goes down.

    I can't believe they didn't mention DrMD the best emulator on the system. They just talk about the stuff that sux like SNES emulation. Kind of weird.

    I thought DaveC made a reasonable point there.

    Like the guy that says that he won't buy it until it has li-ion batteries. What is it with the li-ion brainwashing these days?

    Love the statement things at the bottom:

    standards, n.: The principles we use to reject other people's code.

    Ryan's Law: Make three correct guesses consecutively and you will establish yourself as an expert.

    And besides, who cares about all these skeptics? We know it'll get better, and they'll be left in the dust. Muhahaha.

    There are always idiots in any sufficiently large group. Still, I won't knock the Slashdot exposure. Hundreds of thousands of Linux (and other assorted) geeks reading about the GP2X can only be a good thing in my book. :)

    couldnt agree with you more DaveC.

    4x2500mah batteries is better than a li-ion battery to me.

    hmmm, cheap rechargable high-capacity batteries and the possibility of non-rechargables for emergencies that can be bought anywhere. Or, a proprietary expensive li-ion battery that can only be bought at specialist shops.

    Hmmm, let me think about that one ;)

    Reminds me of my last holiday. My camera takes AA's and the batteries went flat. Didn't take the charger, but managed to buy a 4 pack of AA's from the local newsagent that lasted the remainder of the holiday.

    'nuff said :)

    First time a slashdot has taken my site down, must have been good! (Or uklinux are getting slow)

    Slashdot does get us lots of new members and owners, so its all good, the people who make silly comments don't buy one so don't worry.

    But the article is correct, the speed of software dev has exceeded all expectations. Its astonishing!
