100% green fuel!
I never painted a boat but my looks ain't so good ...
Russians blow that all over their launchpads?
"Ok Gordon, fill the Monomethylhydrazine into the little hole over there!"
"Many engineers I know, me included, have fallen foul of counting backwards down to zero using an unsigned variable instead of a signed one,"
Many "engineers" are not using static analysis and/or are switching compiler warnings off while they get a cuppa coffee.
Patriots and terrorists deserve each other.
One should cordon off a large desert, then they can go there and play.
Jake post coming from another universe (as usual)!
In this universe:
> The quantae of the electromagnetic field have zero rest mass (I hear they are actually superpositions of weak and electromagnetic bosons, so this is a bit more complex than expected)
> The energy content of said field will manifest as gravitational mass in the usual Einstein field equations
The sail will move to a low-wage solar system.
But this one is not premature so the saying doesn't apply.
It seems to be a missing enum value, rather
When going to the network:
When coming from the network:
Probably not possible to implement these because of reasons, but still.
254 complaints were filed with the city over problems related to construction of the network
The next complaint will be broadcast!
Who is Pascal Monnet, who is behind Frenchanon and why are they having a conversation in french about Linode?
Maybe Pascal Monnet and Frenchanon are coworkers?
Yeah, someone will come up with Banderistas doing the Jewish population in such ways that even German Nazis started to retch and there will be fisticuffs and worse in front of the Eurovision venue.
Not bringing popcorn to this one.
More like something that can stop russian 7.62x39
Actually, I do. As it is annoying to do on the command line, I even scripted it to allow copy/paste off the website onto a simple cmdline script. Nothing to write home about:
This thread is full of really bad trolling.
Or you can use honest-to-god GPG signature.
Yeah, I know, nasty to use etc.
Meanwhile: "Linux Bulgarian Mint"
I didn't live at my stated postcode
How did it know?
Someone has scrounged on usability testing again.
It's not the "stockmarket", which is just the syndrome, it's the mnoney printers, Keynesians and "Quantiative Easing, Escape Velocity any Time Now" crazies.
It's all been explained since the 1920s or so. But hey,...
You don't know how the economy works, do you?
there is now the word 'Satire' in bold at the start of this article.
No longer works in the 21st century.
Besides, it could be meta-satire.
For a space elevator, you sure need a stonking big media business. Would playing world porn king for 200 years bring in enough cash?
(Btw, do space elevators do need boosts whenever they lift something or is the angular momentum directly coming from the rotating Earth?)
But is the engineering any good?
I still don't understand what "freedom" has to do with it.
I think people are starting to mightily confuse things, disingeniously (Apple and its iPhans) or not (appreciators of freedom from the Omnipotent Government and opponents to unreasonable searches and seizures)
It is an open court decision, not a secret agency backdooring action, or plausibly deniable executive order from White House. It isn't even an UK-style "order to self-incriminate", forcing one to hand out encryption keys.
One can even appeal.
You know, in the olden days, court orders may be issued and mystery boxes might appear on the Main Distribution Frames in the phone company building. That had nothing to do with chilling effects, enabling Russia or China (evil bugbears) or involving constitutional problems. Yes, there are abuses. Thus, vigilance.
We have seen some utter crap in the last 20 years and many people now in powerful places or on Sunday morning TV should be hanged till dead for that crap, but this isn't in that set.
And how exactly do you, under the US Constitution, force programmers to write software
Am I in an Orlowski article? What does the US Constitution and forced programming have to do with it? Here's your answer:
1) Hire programmer
2) Transfer $$$ (duly taxed)
4) Program written!
It's the safe word.
It's our responsibility as users to maybe port scan and test our shine new security package?!?!
It's also our responsibility to test our yogurth for Anthrax.
NO, FUCK YOU!
I can't imagine the kind of internal management structure that could give rise to such shit.
Actually, I can, but it's for 6-people startups of pimply-faced nerds plus a freshly-baked CEO with delusions of adequacy.
How can I trust any certchain with "COMODO" certs near the root?
Well, at least you get a "free trust logo" with your horribly expensive SSL cert.
I guess it's a terrible collapse when you are IN the terrible collapse. Otherwise it's just "one of those things". Contemporary events in the "Middle East" come to mind.
Also, the Island didn't recover. It will take a bit longer for that to happen. That's the main takeaway point.
I'm sure I saw an article pretty much exactly like this shortly after the US proceeded to do the Forever War On Stuff, on this here very hallowed pages of El Reg. Probably when Jared's book came out?
Slow rant day?
Anyway, either because you behave like a drunken sailor or because nature pulls a trick on you, society collapses, soil is gone, point of no return reached, you are dead, it's over. Whether one later wants to shoehorn green memes or anti-green-memes into this fact is rather tedious. The fact that it is even possible to fuck up that bad willingly w/o combustion engines to help along should be food for thought enough.
BAN BC now... this is out of hand.
This was the "Omnipotent Government" message of today.
Why are Madame May Minions posting here?
Tell the truth. You were "assisting him" in this accident?
"Helping the police with their not unreasonable enquiries" doesn't sound so bad for once?
As ever, the problem isn't the technology: it's the wetware in front of the keyboard that causes the problems.
The problem is still the technology. This is the first attempt ever in history to do anything like this and there will be surprises. Especially as the infrastructure code has lots of really bad design decisions and random cruft stemming from the idea of "a machine on every desktop" approach (especially in the case of Microsoft). Unecessary complexity, code written with an "it's okay, ship it" approach (especially in the case of Microsoft) and the fact that the backup is not physically in a vault in your cellar will cause some sleepless nights.
First time I've heard of Five Eyes. Have I not been paying attention or did they just invent it?
Indeed. We just need two additional eyes and we have the Beast being ridden by That Lady of Babylon. It's biblical.
The "five (iery) eyes" are I guess: US, UK and C&A, as well NZ and AUS
Could start with inventing a new logo. Maybe something from ancient Rome, with an axe and a bundle of sticks.
THIS IS A SCANDAL!
So why is it showing up, today, here?
What are they not telling us?
Well, it seems you can orient and size the voxel so that it is described by 5 numbers, so you get a storage tuple (l, w, d, s, o, φ) at each point in the material. This allows you to encode at least five bits.
The question is of course: How large is size "1"
Self-describing formats are no mystery any longer.
Concepts of language don't change that much - pace all the linguistic's oohing and aaahing it's just activations in slightly incompatible semantic networks.
Just add a proper primer and get on with it.
Actually, you could add a dump of Watson (or whatever comes next) to it while you are at it and indicate how to run it (add machine schematics for implementation) to help the future reader along.
Is that the movie where Sean Connery gets a hard-on?
I'm thinking more along the lines of HAL's "glass block" circuits
But then again, you can get rolled over by "eminent domain" procedures in the US too if someone thinks a new mall in the neighborhood would be just the thing.
Was there at least a payout? Probably nothing of value...
Hasn't everbody been a "system analyst" since the mid 90s' anyway?
After this wall of words, I am thoroughly confused and left breathless.
Am I gettingold?
Nasty stuff indeed. Poor wildlife.
Pray these things won't be used in anger with active payloads.
Good job though.
Film at 11.
There should be some kind of jihad, with pitchforks and hangings...
a date with planet AC +79 3888
It will just miss it by 1.6 ly.
Clearly a school days date.
...but we will help get your sat into orbit this time.
Also, there is cake at the end.
Are you paying attention, Neo?
It's as cyclical as the adoption of the Internet. Cloud infrastructure will become better, kinks will be ironed out. The problem of the "big 3" providers will be constant though, so small-scale players may stand a chance. Alas, it will be niche same as companies doing "Everything we do is in-house, we care about security" will be niche.
This ain't VMS.
VMS didn't do a Harry Potter either.
