These black holes are fucking bastards
Imagine what you could do with 4 billion solar masses of prime quality matter.

Metaphysical musings and what-ifs about unobservable events may be fun (especially if had with a selection of quality beers) but are not Science.
RSW! (Read some Wittgenstein)
Please tell me reactor control systems are not running Windows but something actually safe, secure, real-time, auditable, inspectable, documented and possible ground through a formal verifier?
In the grand scheme of things though, Andromeda Galaxy is barely affected...
(Sadly, this incontinent gun event has already received more attention than a marriage party gate crashed by an incontinent Hellfire missile. It's all a matter of perspective. What a world. I hope Shalmaneser is recording all of this.)
Frankly, Good Samartians should volunteer in droves to
do a JFK on the whole motherfucking lot of themgive them an Uber ride to the Fletcher Memorial Home. This includes "Hitler Detector" and part-time SMTP server admin Killary Klingon.
Putting Kh'arly anywhere near a seat of power is just asking for trouble. A failed business clown that pretends to be able to talk other leaders down as if they were boardroom acolytes? She will probably manage to get into a nuke exchange with certain other nations within a month.
If that's the price, that's the price.
Correct. The buyer sets the price. Not the seller.
(Also, in this case the beef seems to be with the fact that Google is not causing more people to buy images from Getty. Well, that's not going to change by a lawsuit or by making people go to the webiste that displays said image originally from Getty.)
That's against the GPL.
(The GPL Defamation League will be in touch!)
Time for Best Links:
It's PHB radiation.
Any info on how it looks in Belarus?
There is more contamination and a contaminated area twice the one in Ukraine but the local government likes to look crossly at any data collection efforts.
Find, remove teeth and kneecaps.
Then move underneath bridge. From on high.
You will lose a good part of the consumovoter demographic!
the resurgence of the American gilded age
Obvious fantasy as the great expansion into the plains is over. Clearly the writer is overegging the pudding.
It's an entropy augmentator!
I don't think water will be enough as a drying cycle will call up the undead hardware again. You need add salt to ensure correct electrolytic exchange across the floating gate membranes.

Holy reentering Kerbals, that's actually amazing.
Did they set up a whole Russian launch infrastructure, complete with Russian-gauged trains and all?
300 Terabytes of particle collusions and accompanying analysis
The collusion is all about denying voters the right to vote and propel loose particles Trump/Hillary to the Red Button Golden Eagle Seat Of Utter Democracy Kitsch, isn't it?
Everyone expects the Armada Collective.
But then it doesn't show up.
In Mexico, it also leaves people exposed to a lot more...
You could argue that the separation between the Bad Guys and State is Work in Progress, so if they want to get you, they have the data anyway, but still...
Do you touch yourself while trolling?
> not enough life (Unix) experience
Nicely written but:
If someone was allowed to distribute a modified Linux kernel under the Apache licence, for example, they need never pass a single byte of the Source Code to anyone outside their organisation; and yet it would still be considered Open Source
is totally wrong. It would not be Open Source, per definition. And putting the Apache license onto a binary would be like putting "guaranteed gluten-free" onto a concrete block. Absolutely pointless.
But what about the non-free graphics drivers from AMD and nVidia? They're supplied as blobs, so why is this any different?
They don't come with a distro that says "GPL" on it. Load them into the kernel you can, of course, after download from the manufacturer's website. Also, the kernel then is considered "tainted" AFAIK, so bug reports will be downprioritized.
Isn't free software wonderful?
there are MANY reasons why a module needs to have a 'closed source' component
Not a single one. Unless you like to play The Gimp in Zed's Basement.
Also, "regulation" doesn't work by "closing source". It just doesn't. If the FCC "demands it" (haven't checked), the FCC is full of cluless idiots doing Broadcom's bidding (oh surprise!)
If you want "tamperproof", well, you better have the appropriate chip on you board. This is known as "trustworthy computing", i.e. trustworthy from the manufacturer side while the user gets an additional bell on his collar.
So if you can re-compile the kernel and the ZFS module for the new kernel, there should be NO issue with the GPL.
Your personal interpretation of the GPL is well noted.
Can someone please get to work and write "systemd in Action"...
It has everything to do with Stallman trying to control other people's software. I repeat: Stallman can bite me.
This must be the extreme freetardist corner of the freetardist section of the freetard republic of freedom?
There are people not using it?
I'm forced to use Linux because it is free, and people don't want to pay for software.
"Oracle lost interest in maintaining that five years ago"
Oracle never lost interest in
making moneyextracting money or controlling things though.
People were annoyed that it was one massive bundled binary rather than a lot of smaller components which could be maintained independently
This seems to say more about the Clueless Tweeter "ain't doing no reading of dusty literature" Generation than about the "product" in question.
I would be mad as hell. It would be enough to call for a good KKK-style expedition complete with wild night rides and burning torches in order to adjust attitudes.
So can you actually light this baby around, say, Jovian neighborhood without having an actual nuclear reactor aboard? Just with panels?
Because she is a credible threat to the republicans establishment it's play as dirty as possible.
No-one needs to play dirty with Hillary. The facts will do.
As for failed wars, you may want to remember who has been in charge for the last 8 years or so. We didn't have Syria or Lybia before, you know. We have Ukraine and are not happy with Russia or China. And we still have Iraq and Afghanistan.
"Hillary’s supporters are more enthusiastic than Sen. Bernie Sanders’ supporters, yet often times are discouraged from engaging online and are 'often afraid to voice their thoughts' because of the fear of online harassment."
Looks like her paying shocking obedience to AIPAC has paid off ... they seem to have handed her the propaganda handbook.
There is nothing wrong with getting elected as Tory Party member, you can even go pretty far with that kind of endorsement.
I'm getting the feeling I am reading one of those old-school Science Fiction stories found in those "Nebula Awards" or "Michael Moorcock presents..." anthologies of my youth.
It's either the beer or some subconscious trigger. Maybe the disturbing questionnaire silliness?
I remember is J.G. Ballard's "Answers to a Questionnaire" (on the Internet). Also, John Sladek's "Anxietal Register B" (which appeared in John Christopher's Mind in Chains, but I had to look that up), basically a form that you don't want to fill in as it goes progressively deeper into querying information about your inner space. Shit's not on the Internet though... pity.
Why not redo the utter disgrace that is the Dell website? (due to being a cobbled-together mess of dedicated consumer confusion, who then get told that they actually CAN'T configure the stuff they want the way they want it)
Yeah. The kinetic energy is not appearing from nowhere. Not even in make-believe physics.
Despite skepticism from the scientific priesthood
People who know their shit are a "priesthood".
McCulloch suggests the same effect accounts for the anomalies observed when spacecraft accelerate around a planet: they jump.
They what now?
No, the Minuteman 1 had a specially designed discrete-element computer, not anything off-the-shelf (with "TRUE" at -10V... damn)
D-17B computer, complete with instruction set! (That is what should have been scrolling in Terminatorvision™!)
No, it looks like a design and a "do you REALLY want to have this? Are you REALLY CERTAIN?" question.
Intel is not in this game.
Does it take a referendum to bring back the death penality?
Lax behaviour in society has gone too far. There must be some counterbalancing pressure....
Like wanking and voting.
> the rule of law
It's only for utter arseholes on the business end of state-mandated exploitation. Deal with it.
Better do some getting and start mucking shit up for fun.
I don't know, I have tested all the known ones and they were all good.
Fellow citizens! Stay in your designated "Free Speech Area"!

x86 is not awesome. Not at all.
