How about the one about anonymous coward and the cattle prod?
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
"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.
Some people pay that much for the beer they drink.
WHERE in UROP can I get beer at that level of cheap? And I am not talking luxury beer, just something not Carlsberg and drinkable.
Actually lizard escape pods in case the apocalypse comes.
Very unbreakable, I see.
Maybe it's all those extra resources slowing it down?!
The Gühgle-Mycrosôwt theorem: WIth increasing resources, programs experience polynomial slowdown.
...which would make those unreal bugs, and thus hard to debug.
....did they get the Dixie Flatline's personality construct out of Sony's vault?
Case flipped to cyberspace and sent a command pulsing down the crimson thread that pierced the library ice. Five separate alarm systems were convinced that they were still operative. The three elaborate locks deactivated, but considered themselves to have remained locked. The library's central bank suffered a minute shift in its permanent memory: the construct had been removed, per executive order, a month before. Checking for the authorization to remove the construct, a librarian would find the records erased.
The door swung open on silent hinges.
`0467839,' Case said, and Molly drew a black storage unit from the rack. It resembled the magazine of a large assault rifle, its surfaces covered with warning decals and security ratings.
Molly closed the locker door; Case flipped.
eventually comprehend that things have changed in the last 50 years
> C is still being taught at uni in "muh computer science"
How do you expect management to catch up (they have just arrived at the deming cycle)?
It's Abe and his 'nomics.
His real identity is actually YEN PRINT MAN and his MAGENTA SPANDEX.
There is nothing he will not buy!
Tennouuuu heikaaaa banzaiii!!!
... If modernity is characterized by a loss of the sense of the real, this fact is connected to what has happened to money in the twentieth century. Everything threatens to become unreal once money ceases
to be real. I said that a strong sense of counterfeit reality prevails in "Disorder and Early Sorrow." That fact is ultimately to be traced to the biggest counterfeiter of them all - the government and its printing presses. Hyperinflation occurs when a government starts printing all the money it wants, that is to say, when the government becomes a counterfeiter. Inflation is that moment when as a result of government action the distinction between real money and fake money begins to dissolve. That is why inflation has such a corrosive effect on society. Money is one of the primary measures of value in any society, perhaps the primary one, the principal repository of value. As such, money is a central source of stability, continuity, and coherence in any community. Hence to tamper with the basic money supply is to tamper with a community's sense of value. By making money worthless, inflation threatens to undermine and dissolve all sense of value in a society. Thus Mann suggests a connection between inflation and nihilism.
Perhaps in no society has nihilism ever been as prevalent an attitude as it was in Weimar Germany; it was reflected in all the arts, and ultimately in politics. It would of course be wrong to view this nihilism as solely the product of an inflationary environment. Obviously Weimar Germany faced many other problems, some the legacy of World War I and the Treaty of Versailles, some the legacy of nineteenth-century German thinkers such a s Nietzsche. But as Mann's story reminds us, we should not underestimate the role of inflation in creating the pervasive sense of nihilism in Weimar Germany. A glance at the back of an American dollar bill shows two phrases: "United States of America" and "In God We Trust." Somehow our money is connected with our political and even our religious beliefs. Shake a people's faith in their money, and you will shake their other faiths a s well. This problem has become particularly acute in the twentieth century, because ours is the age of paper money, money that has to be taken on faith alone. That is why we have to put "In God We Trust" on the back of our dollars; nobody really trusts the Chairman of the Federal Reserve. In "Disorder and Early Sorrow," Mann invites us to consider what happens to our lives when we are forced to take our money purely on faith and that faith is betrayed by the government.
