So it practically lies on the current trajectory.
How much delta-V do you need?
That's because one system is chaotic and the other is pretty much not, it's a system in spindown mode dumping energy into its surroundings with rather simple statistics.
The Grand Unification of Boffinry and Bozonosity is called Buffoonification, and it has has its own heavy gauge boson: The Commentardon, with spin "whatever". Rumors that Susie and Sheryl will cause the Commentardino to appear have so far not been met with experimental success, probably because his mass is a multiple of the Mall Scooter.
The DUHLY MAIL is a bit confused about QM.
They are using both the metaphor of a "particle having a certain position and thus being able to be labeled as having passed a certain point" and a "particle being a complex-valued probability density function (aka 'wave' to the charver public though this has nothing to do with a wave front, right and center). You can't have it both ways.
That the 'wave' changes depending on whether you drop a grating into its environment before you extract the position information from said wave is exactly as it should be according to even naive QM.
For the macroscopic object, you exponentially quickly collapse to the fat-arsed behaviour of massive daily objects: HERE and NOW become very important indeed.
Just make sure you are not in the axis of ejecta of this devil's engine of entropy maximization, and all will be fine.
It's worse. Depending on how you are moving relative to Markarian 231 (not to be confused with Spandex 12), the merger may have occurred at any time selectable of your past. It depends on m/s values, too.
Can't be arsed to do the special relative calculations, anyone with no girlfriend tonight might be so kind...
all people are Time Travellers
No. All people are Time Spaghetti. That's not the same at all.
Artist's view of a binary black hole.
Mr Artist, please. This doesn't look like a binary black hole at all.
semimajor axis of ~590 AU and an orbital period of ~1.2 years
That's around 14600 km/s on a circular orbit. Nice!

The bonus question is, was he a Sun Person?
I find it fascinating (and hilarious)
Which is just another way of saying "it rustles my jimmies though I'm not fully sure why" or "somebody is wrong on my Internet".
Mr. Marsden, I do think this omelette fell out of your cranium?
Next up: Dry Water, Unblue Sky, Leftists for Freedom and Free Money.
They're not only not done, their hardware is incapable of accomplishing the complete job.
It's like someone is talking about the human brain here.
The Google Car Driving Dilemma?
I would have gotten out and knocked the wanker off his bike. Then run over his bicycle. Five times.
Dammit Vlad, stop driving in Mother Russia Suburbia, da?
I don't agree at all about the "nothing unsafe".
By not showing these ads, the programmers lose out on vital revenue.
I have witnessed the rise of the vital revenue on the net. I will be glad when it's dead and done.
"hypocracy" is something else though. Government by the bottom maybe?
Independent French malware researcher Kafeine (@kafeine) points out operators on underground forums who are selling stolen traffic relating to malvertising with prices ranging from US$4000 for 100,000 multi-geographic hits (known in the marketplace as 'loads') to US$70 for 1000. By country, GrandClix sold United States traffic for the highest buck with US$500 for 1000 hits, and Australia and the United Kingdom attracting US$450 for the same amount.
Hold, on, what is the "stolen traffic relating to malvertising"?
Are we talking about malware installed into surfers' browsers generating fraudulent clicks to websites of the unethical customer of this "service", thus bumping iut up in Google PageRank and similar charts? This malware being installed by maldvertised exploits? So an uncalled-for tab/popup window would appear in the victim's browser?
"He buys ads for three bucks from an ad company and then defrauds them out of $1000s from ad fraud"
How? When does the ad company pay out?
And of course there's the possibility of a hypervisor attack that can break out of a VM...
This is like worrying about Iran's quasi-nonexistent self-repudiated nuclear program that is being inspected anyway.
Not all attack paths are realistic. For more on this, see "Independence Day" (Roland Emmerich, 1996)
But then you wouldn't need to encrypt it? (Carrying TWO codebooks around is a bit nightmarish)
7 people of 8 believe in the tooth fairy.
From The Roosevelt Myth by John Flyyn:
After delivering his inaugural address, Roosevelt issued a proclamation closing all banks. The next problem was to open them. It was assumed by everybody who watched these proceedings that Roosevelt had a plan of his own which he was keeping secret. The strangest feature of this whole comedy-drama is now to come. Having closed the banks, Roosevelt had not the faintest notion how they were to be reopened. He had not the slightest plan of any kind in his mind. He had not even given the matter a thought. This, I know, is difficult to believe. Yet it is true, as we shall now see.
... Congress was called to meet on the 9th. And Will Woodin assured Roosevelt he would have legislation dealing with the banking situation in time. On Sunday, Moley and the new Attorney-General, Homer Cummings, worked on an emergency proclamation. This invoked the powers granted the President under the Trading with the Enemy Act passed in the First World War. It declared the four days from March 6 to March 9 a bank holiday, forbidding all banks to pay out either gold or currency but providing that the President might in that time permit any or all banks to carry on such transactions as they deemed proper. In preparing this document, the draft already prepared by Mills and Ballantine for President Hoover was used. It was issued on Monday, March 6. It was a clearly unconstitutional act but justified by the emergency provided Congressional confirmation could be quickly received and for this confirmation Roosevelt asked, though he had refused to tell Hoover he would do so.
Thousands of employees expecting to be paid ahead of the bank holiday weekend
Peons should learn that "bank holidays" are not about holidays but about trying to keep bank runs under control because LOL fractional reserve banking.
Are you retarded?
You are looking at once-in-a-lifetime deleveraging of accumulated speech capital here. If we close the mental gap, we might find ourselves on the same page with rather pedestrian normspeak.
The PC market is back in the doldrums
Logbook, 16:30: A large white whale was spotted by cap'tn Nadella on the horizon, but it escaped unharmed.
The wait under the leaden sun goes on.
The kickstart something.
The model of "doing OSS in spare time" is dangerous in any case and bound to de-cliff at a moment's notice. Because too personal.
Intel is generally not too unfriendly irt OSS though. What's going on here?
I don't see where the problem is.
Sounds like a friendly report & patch to me.
> billion dollar company.
Irrelevant. Trademark litigation is not exactly an open-ended "he said/she said" affair.
"We want them to stop using this"
"Is it a registered trade mark in the economic area described in the filing" YES
"Is in the same domain of application" YES
"Ok, stop using it"
"Linux Carrier Grade Profile" shurely better than "Windows for Warships"?
So .... looking forward to a nice statement by WindRiver.
And what does the GNU legal counsel say?
How is ripoff company connected to stopping support for "stable" as apparently they are not using it in the first place, and is it time to start registering trademarks on, say "grsecurity"?
And that's any different with a cloudy provider?
No, and that's the point.
Welcome to the Real World, where you have to take decisions that are neither black nor white.
You actually have faith in SLA's?
No, but you have to make the good out of the bad. A penalty clause can rarely be enforced in-house. On the other side of the "house" interface though, it can. Money and lawyers concentrate the mind.
In the end, you have to the comparison of the attributes that different solutions offer you now and five years out, then select accordingly.
And you will have no way to know when it will be back, nor can you do anything about except shout on the phone.
You do have proper SLAs don't you? The ones that stand-in for the OLAs that you didn't manage to properly implement with in-house services because of undecided management and unclear separation of responsibilities, not to mention budgetary restrictions? Where you had to shout on the phone with the sysops down in the basement and never knew when the service would be back?
IT has a cost. Putting data in the Cloud does not remove that cost. It does, however, remove your control over it to place it in the hands of you don't know who.
I have bad news about the software, hardware and firmware you are running in your datacenter though. Hold on, did that consultant just walk out with a large USB stick?
For what purpose? Who is the target audience for balls with toothed beaks?
I don't know why Tommy Hilfiger clothing comes to mind.
I do hope it is an outtake of Halloween 2015: Shamrock's Revenge.
I am not sure how I would feel about a popup telling me "too many users have that password already, please choose another one".
Censorship is never neutral dog. That's, like, a totally different mass of state-issued shit.
Provide link, dawg.
It's not even paywalled.
It's the reason that's important
"Not basing traffic management on packet attributes that are irrelevant for said management."
On a highway toll booth, cars with the "already paid elsewhere" sticker, the VIP marker or the blue light may pass quickly. The rest should be an amalgamated mass. Once vans of delivery company X are suspiciously often held up compared to vans of delivery company Z, something is going on. But then the contract should stipulate a max delay time for 99% of the time or penalties.
If there are daily jams, you may want to consider using our VIP#2 lane, usable for a low, low fee... (and then you have to hope that the next tool booth is either owned by the same operator or is contractually bound to you, too)
In the software world, there is talk about moving away from the "Not responsible, LOL" EULA model for paid-for software. Is it time to move away from the "best effort, LOL" EULA model for packet delivery?
It is possible to have network infrastructure that has more bandwidth than the consumers can use.
I though this was a tech site?
Oh well. Maybe economics is no longer even needed for modern button pushers.
"If Obama can promise 5 billion of "special pension outlays", why not 500 billion??"
says it's a dog-lick-dog kind of event, so there is no need to protest too much.
THEN ANCIENT/TRANSDIMENSIONAL EVIL IS UNLEASHED and you end up WHERE YOU NEED NO EYES
Until the user has to do something that ought to be a little more complicated, at which point it becomes a lot more complicated.
1) Make the mundane simple.
2) Make the demanding possible.
Windows used to stop at 1). To reach 2), difficulties and hits on your credit card increased exponentially.
Well, at least there is PowerShell now.
Commendable effort. Some stylistic errors and author nearly comes across as too retarded to be believable. Would troll with. 8/10.
The night sky on Earth in its early years was very different, with our Moon glowing red with fire in the sky. Now scientists think they've worked out why.
As we don't have reliable eyewitness accounts about those times, the last "why" should be replaced by a "that".
The grammar would be atrocious but the direction of scientific enquiry would be right.
