No, but it's dark at the moment.
So it's business as usual then, just more of it.
The boys in blue with guns and badges will be around to make sure you obey the laws written in special code open to interpretation by pill-popping octogenarians and all-age harpies of the male and female sort, all of them minding other people's business for their own good. Meanwhile you will be under the automated ever-watchful eye of the algorithm, bayesian or otherwise.
Of course, you will also pay for all of that.
I suggest people awail themselves to some media disinformation and popular culture dross to upgrade their happiness index. We also don't want the economy reeling on destructive interventionism to tone done the festive feeling of Buy Everything Day.
> You don't have to mix with economy class plebs
That's what he is saying
The Donetsk Referendum:
"Do you support the declaration of state independence of the Donetsk People's Republic?"
Amazingly, no mention of Russia.
I suspect you are making things up.
And now back to work! Do you think this economy is gonna fix itself?
No trolls were fed in this orbital extravaganza.
> I hope the Russians will understand how to deal with it before soon
He is also very popular. And a better politician than the barely acceptable self-styled neurotic world saviours we happen to have on offer. Could be these things are related.
I'd rather them blow tax money on Orion
I hate to tell you but no-one is even asking you about whether you like to see this or that done with the taxdollars that your kids will have to pay back.
Yeah, "Orion" is nice (for some values of nice), but so would be Petunias on every balcon of Washington, D.C.
Full disclosure: I would vote for it (or at least something in the general direction of it), if I could and the money was on the table.
There is nothing wrong with Russia.
Also, thank you taxpayer of the future.
How about the one about anonymous coward and the cattle prod?
> Perhaps you can think of a few, if you try.
Deranged people who for some reason feel the pressing need to loudly declare their non-allegiance to Microsoft come to mind.
Hah! Downvotes from Microsoft grass rooters don't faze me. Give it up.
I am glad to hear that.
But next you will be telling me that trolling and the sad reality about anything "Microsoft" can actually be distinguished in a finite amount of time?
So what's gonna happen in January when support for Win7 ends
In this case, why believe that this word has the significance one usually attaches to it?
"Crazy prepared", then?
They must have hored Pham Nuwen himself.
"My country publicly declared that it would follow international norms banning hacking and piracy."
Can't find it in any MiniEducation-approved shop? Piracy sorted!
but they do all this amazing slingshot actions with satellites to speed them up on their way off to the far reaches on the solar system...
Unfortunately, the Big Jupiter is on the OTHER side of Mars...
the reusable craft
About as reusable as an Apollo capsule, I reckon.
Yup, this sure is some anomalous material standard insertion procedure, green flashes and panicky cries and all.
Just chalk it up to "blowback from seriously bad behaviour in the 30's" and be done with it.
Pretty sure Eiffel is still not on the menu and they are messing around in the "reduced C" language design space. Of course, Ada is there, too.
OTOH, a must read for anyone past the larval stage of pizza-fueled hacking (which we all liked but one has to leave childish things behind): Reasoning and Veri cation - State of the Art and Current Trends
That's because we want to hear bearded truckers in wifebeaters deadpanning on open radio while they take the Nth trip to orbit with an array of random rusty container that were thrown out of a factory gate in Shenzen 24h earlier, not delicate circus stunts to maybe get a few precious kilogrammes to GEO.
We are a long way from that.
In this case, chocolate-covered sugar bombs would be more appropriate.
Some 17 executives, from programming to advertising, were listed as having salaries over US$1 million.
Not that excessive but clearly there is still shareholder value that can be clawed back. Now with extreme prejudice.
....a threat that will be realized any Krugman-Minute now, shortly before IRANIAN NUKES KILL US ALL.
So we better print more money and hike prices. Well done, Satya.
Maybe one can connect it to a mobe somehow? Special USB cables and all that.
Also, my Atari ST was better than your CBM Amiga.
Tell this to me in the back of the bus and see what happens!!
In german it would be "Seemöve" - seagull
I don't think doge is involved. At all.
That military budget?
NOTHING LEFT TO CUT!
where the cables were so intertwined that you never removed an old cable, for fear of damaging the other cables
My nightmare is to crawl through the cable mass, trying to find the exit, with only a glowstick as aid.
Maybe Junji Ito has done a work on sysops....
When I hear "Orion" I want to see seriously Teller-tier nuclear propulsion in space, not a pork barrel cannon aimed at preferred suppliers by the Obama administration to make friends and buy regional support while keeping the greenery and kumbaya-feeling of environmentally sustainable space travel alive, meanwhile promising the impossible (go to Mars) and the seriously uninteresting (go to Moon).
Nuke 'shroom as icon, of course.
Having the cake and eating it too.
An old story. Be against free trade, then export, claiming free trade. Be for taxing the rich, then against taxing the rich as the "rich" attribute descends to your level etc. etc.
So by that logic, a neutral net means the flicks would come from their data center to the customer
Or rather, might come from their data center to the customer if they were the only one on the infrastructure.
Never played "civilization"?
But yes, someone had to come up with the trick of getting smelter fires hot enough....
Far Right Wing attitudes are libertarian, and 'social control rejecting'.
Mr. DODGY GEEZER of dubious pedigree....
Don't know if you are trolling or just utterly fecking clueless.
Also, a slave's life was not necessarily a poor one. For 'slave', nowadays read 'contractor paid board and expenses only'...
AHAHAH. No. Slavery conditions
You can't help but wonder what mental capacity the people back then possessed without their minds being dulled by the everyday conveniences we have at our disposal today.
Slaves. They had slaves. Aristotle apparently was worrying about how hard life would be if the daily problems were not being managed by slaves. He also considered jobs not in the farming or military sectors as unworthy of free men, thus showing a sad lack of understanding of basic economic matters. Not to mention frankly extreme right attitudes. For the frankly nauseating elogy of state control, consult Plato.

Not getting around much?
It's just like another Jason/Freddy installment.
It's enough to make anyone give up the Interwebs and buy a TV for accelerated mind euthanasia.
A remake of the 3rd man.
The sysop really hit the puffers this time.
> Init freedom.
Oh my fscking $DEITY
Seriously why does the choice have to be between init's barely-working duck tape and systemd's skynet-tier complexity? Just get a Prolog interpreter in there for flexibility and bog-simple sequencing based on short scripts and be done with it.
The files detailed below appear to relate to the automatic content recognition systems operated by anti-piracy company Audible Magic.
"Good. GOOD!" (Galactic emperor handwring and cackling laughter).
But ... they are using PuTTY?
In what direction?
My thoughts exactly.
We are all so ... cynical these days.
wouldn't be able to watch anything these days otherwise, excepting the aforementioned Turing flick and the upcoming Hawking biopic
One has to learn to say NO to megaturds flung out of directors' arses (which are then sold to the potential public in hushed tones of reverential awe accompanied to "the music of the feels" because gayness is a touchy-feely subject etc.) See here and in particular:
At least the Hawking biopic is acceptable (apparently). If they just cut and pasted the black hole imagery from Less-than-Interstellar over to that, I would be happy.
"Your meat intake has been excessive during the last 2 days, 007"
The special lift of SHADO in the director's office also comes to mind.
