Amazon, Apple, Google and Mickysoft will realise that preventing their competition from owning the domain is the best solution, and so will support the community version - of course, each would want a member on the board as well...
"should we ever build our three Arcs ready to ship us off to a better life I will make damn sure anyone who even remotely had a job in marketing or making adverts, is on the first one"
You do remember that after the first arc left the remaining population were wiped out by a rare disease due to unhygienic telephone handsets...
Correct1 above: "everything with the same shape will fall at the same rate" is incorrect
The air resistance will be the same, but the gravitational force (weight) will not be. Two 10cm spheres, one massing twice the other will not fall at the same rate though a viscous fluid. The more massive sphere will fall quicker, due to the air resistance being less significant as it is acting on a greater mass of object.
The string on the same page (which has therefore by definition been compromised)?
A public key also stored on the same page?
Why aren't the keys checked by a package manager (how most people install these things)? Why aren't they in some way securely distributed (DNSSEC hosted?)
I can barely recall
the last time I drive more than 80 miles in a day.
I used to have a nasty commute - 140 miles round trip. However I could have charged at work (or left an e-car at home and used a fossil burner)
Other than that commute - I took a road trip round America, but I hired a car for that...
Erm... Before that???
I know - I manage a bit more than that going to a retreat centre every so often - but I can hire a car for holidays on the savings made from driving battery powered the rest of the year and still have money over to buy the holiday (well I could have done, I tend to cycle rather alot now)
Exporting a list of words and adding as a new dictionary is so hard?
Wait, I've never tried to export from a MS dictionary - but it's got to be easy - surely...
kitchen cupboard material...
required, and must contain letters.
IP enabled thermostats (read temperature and regulate valve), thermometers (maybe in light switches, which could also be IP controllable) and boiler controls.
Of course the manual override still has to work, and you need power to the radiators, but that can't be insurmountable.
DNSSEC, and an SSLkey record type
Then we can forget about all of these dappy certificate issuing bodies and roll our own without warnings - the browser (or other application which wishes to communicate securely) can simply look up the required certificate via a secured sideband transmission.
If we want to get all clever about it then why not add DNSCurve to the list as well, encrypt the DNS queries as well...
Tell your machine that when it sees this UUID device (For which you can sub a readable name) that is should run a certain program with parameters.
Preferably a program held on the PC, not the device, but it doesn't really matter if you trust your devices.
Such a system can't be that hard (udev?) for a behemoth like Micro$oft to wrap a pretty gui round for your granny to use. Backup drive manufacturers could even interface with it..
For Android 2.3.3 install cyanogenmod...
Other after market firmware versions are available...
It's not nearly as hard as I thought it would be (although I did get into a reboot loop once, it wasn't terminal)
A reset to eliminate software issues before a hardware return.
Not every week - just when a customer is suggesting that their handset is broken.
Only if the containment was too large.
Nukes convert a miserly fraction of a percent of their mass into energy - an antimatter bomb would release it ALL. Of course it would release it mostly as Gamma, whereas a nuke releases large quantities of heat as well (due to the reaction of the remaining mass.
You copied my pixels Waaa WaaaHaaaaa.....
Amazing - if they'd lifted the graphics then that it one thing, but to assert ownership over a pretty obvious shape, after all my chopping board is that shape.
What we need to do is to have a standard DNS record for SSL keys.
With DNSSEC implemented you have a full trust relationship (to your DNS root provider), and there is no need to have these third party certificate signing authorities...
Missed the point
Your job is still needed. The skills are still needed.
But you can't do much (other than planning) without some actual cable (optical or electrical or other yet to be discovered/invented) in the ground.
Digging a hole does not require networking knowledge, just a spade. Once they have laid conduits you're network hardware colleagues can simply come and blow the cables along...
it's been designed to detect pedestrians - Oh, wait. It hasn't.
So now BMW drivers will fly round corners safe in the knowledge that they'll only hit something squishy.
PS -Yes I read the speed limitation on the system.
PPS - Yes I realise that this is no different from many BMW/Audi drivers at the moment.
Aftermarket firmware is the only way to get upgrades in a timely fashion.
Carriers don't care - you're already paying
Manufacturers don't care - they want to sell you a new phone
Most vehicles aren't "Veteran" after just 24 journeys...
Although measured in miles, or fuel consumption it could be valid.
Now can we design the orbital vehicles we need?
Like a small crew vehicle, and separate cargo vessels - so that the crew is carrying less fuel, and can be further away from it...
"The hope is that this kind of modeling will help clinical research."
Is it just me who read that as meddling, not modelling?
The abort system ignored the obvious method (the shuttle itself).
IIRC the latest theory is that the crew component of the shuttle went off on a graceful arc before a fatal collision with the sea.
"According to the Kerwin Report:
The findings are inconclusive. The impact of the crew compartment with the ocean surface was so violent that evidence of damage occurring in the seconds which followed the disintegration was masked. Our final conclusions are:
the cause of death of the Challenger astronauts cannot be positively determined;
the forces to which the crew were exposed during Orbiter breakup were probably not sufficient to cause death or serious injury; and
the crew possibly, but not certainly, lost consciousness in the seconds following Orbiter breakup due to in-flight loss of crew module pressure.
Some experts, including one of NASA's lead investigators, Robert Overmyer, believed most if not all of the crew were alive and possibly conscious during the entire descent until impact with the ocean."
solar powered lifting body airships...
could surely survive for months on end (longer if we can ferry up helium canisters -fairly easy to have a big catch plate on top of the airship surely...
"A full investigation into the network design and components is being undertaken to verify if there are any design issues to be addressed."
There is clearly a nasty single point of failure here. I am going to stick my neck out and suggest that it isn't the only switch which could have gone pop (as they had to systematically close off the network).
Is this stuff not monitored?
45 Hours continuous operation
So it's useful at the poles then. I rarely get 45 hours continuous sunshine this far south/north.
Hats off to them...
Good response - which is much more important than being invulnerable to start with.
The water won't be radioactive (above normal levels) all year.
It's won't have significant levels after a month (assuming that the contamination was a one instance release)
An office worker needs to work 40 hours a week. They may (with flexitime) choose to work more on a Monday and Tuesday, and less on a Thursday and Friday.
That doesn't mean that they've done too much work on Monday, just that they've redistributed their working week.
(Sorry - not a good analogy, but the best I can come up with in zero time)
Main reason the limits are set:
There isn't a evidence for any risk at levels significantly higher than the legal limits. But, partly due to wild mistrust of anything with the "N" word, we have these very low limits in place.
If I recall correctly, when I was at school it was the case that normal tea bags were actually sufficiently radioactive that technically they should have been dealt with as Medium Level Waste. (Note that I can't currently spot anything to back that claim up - not that I've tried very hard)
