Mayans, don't you know.
Throw them a bone!
Yes, about that
After last week´s decision by HSBC to halt its policy of not honoring large withdrawal requests by depositors comes news of the Russian bank “My Bank” implementing its own run-protection measure.
“My Bank”, one of Russia´s top 200 lenders by assets, has introduced “a complete ban on cash withdrawals until next week.” In my discussion of HSBC´s similar policy here, I note that limiting redemption requests has been a measure to help fractional-reserve banks remain solvent since, well, the advent of fractional-reserve banking.
This is not Battlestar Galactica.
But in IT and suicidal thoughts?
I know the feel.
To be true, Poland is a country that grows, shrinks, disappears, then reappears, then is forcefully visited by funky Trotsky and his Red Army, then stabilizes, then disappears in a double-sided hostile takeover, then is sold for by FDR to jovial Russians for a presidential election win, then reappears in modified form shifted to the left on the map, then unsovietizes only to be europized later.
It is hard to honour national heroes while doing this kind of electric boogaloo.
"I look forward to them telling the story of how the Americans cracked the Enigma code."
Wasn't there a submarine movie about this?
Those who are asking for a reduction are in bed with the Huns!
"driving growth" is a nonsensical juxtaposition of words created by tea-leaf readers and martini swilllers.
There is "growth" in a very specific sector if there is interest in buying the stuff offered in that very specific sector.
Nothing can "drive growth" except the government pumping in free money like some sort of farmer pumping in growth hormone because he is hellbent on seeing larger hams.
Those sandboxing ideas are NOT WRONG (even if Java on th client makes as hash of it). Where have they gone? Do I need to run the browser in a disposable Virtual Machine?
That would be "monopsony capitalism". Here we have the situation where exploitative companies are BUYING labor and cruelly raped creativity at ARTIFICIALLY LOW prices, as opposed to SELLING trinkets (to which we are all entitled) at ARTIFICIALLY HIGH prices while orphaned children and widows starve and are worked to death in the terrible sweatshops of
"Monopoly capitalism", with the adducted threat of violence and property destruction, would be a thing of the UNIONS.

More interestingly, don't people check the signatures? Gotta admit that the way code nerds implement this simple software surety often leaves SOMETHING to be desired. Like for it to be actually there....
Yet another patent granted with no working product in sight, no new ideas, no restriction to a working implementation.
Just telling the world "I own the stuff you haven't even made yet".
This is in fact being done.
It was mandatory reading at school. We had a whole box.
Taking rendezvous with doctor Sigmund...
But the question is how logical is it that she's the only one who was monitored, how likely is it that she was the German person the NSA was watching?
I misread that as "mounted", I hope I am not the only one.
But 'twas all legal! Ingsoc has all the paperwork to prove it.
If you are done, I can invite you to have a visit with my local mayor...
And maybe Stephen Fry for the tour description. For the LULZ.
This reactionary drive will get you nowhere!
How exactly will beancounter mannage improve a space expedition?
It's not even kawaii enough to be a good copy of a Japanese Chibi Moe Spacerobot (with or without schoolgirl attendance).
Come on , China, get a grip!
Yep, state doesn't like much competition.
This was all just a matter of time.

Plasticky face, no baby petting and robotic demeanour will be (welcome?) side-effects of high intelligence, no ego problems and actually logical and consistent behaviour!

"We have a fix in an upcoming software update for a bug that can occasionally cause a home screen crash"
"This is great news because I've been shocked how often these reboots/crashes have been occurring since moving to iOS7 last Autumn"
So "occasionally" or "often"?
With a few notable exceptions, the "progressive" media matrix – the lefty pundits, thinktanks, academics, and activists who make up the Democratic party’s core intellectual constituency – have reacted to the Snowden revelations with hysterical denunciations, not of the government but of the leaker: the hate emanating from the MSNBC studios is hot enough to burn if you get too close to your television. And it’s not just the pundits: Norman Soloman rightly called the response from progressive Democrats in Congress "murky," and that’s certainly an understatement. Sure, some of this can be attributed to partisanship, but there’s an ideological motivation for this illiberal stance as well. ...
[Progressive historian Sean Wilentz in The New Republic] – whose work has focused on the role of race and class in American politics – digs up morsels of Internet commentary by Snowden in order to show he’s ideologically suspect. The piece has all the hallmarks of a Pravda polemic, circa 1933, which purports to demonstrate that Stalin’s critics are Trotskyite wreckers on Hitler’s payroll. There is no treatment of Snowden’s claim that the NSA’s intrusive programs violate the Fourth Amendment, or that such a comprehensive spying apparatus conducted in secret represents a mortal threat to our democracy: instead, Snowden, Greenwald, and Julian Assange are given an ideological litmus test at the end of which they are diagnosed as …. libertarians!
This is their "crime."
Wilentz cites an Internet posting in which Snowden writes: "It’s my only gun, but I love it to death." This is the Professor’s first clue that Snowden is Not One of Us: "The Walther P22," he avers, "a fairly standard handgun, is not especially fearsome, but Snowden’s affection for it hinted at some of his developing affinities." Why, he probably watches "Duck Dynasty"!
Horrors! But there’s worse to come....
Snowden is at this point so out of the loop
So how's the weather in the Big Government Tank in Virginia and so you actually believe you will get pension checks from Uncle Sam later in life?
So what good is this?
1) Microsoft-proprietary "IP" that Microsoft wants to flog but where everyone has to be toll-gated for --> Dead on arrival
2) Microsoft-proprietary "IP" that Microsoft wants use in-house only --> Dead on arrival
And seriously, no prior art?
Well, people can't into history of science shocker. Ask anyone inside the UK about Turing and get the same blank look.
Humans pull themselves out of universal utter shite a bit => It was God!! (this actually means, as member of God's Own Franchise, "pay me")
Living standards improve => This is bad. You must put scare quotes around "better off". Believe in solidarity and communitarian lifestyle instead!! Repent!!!
It's like having an economist professsor tell you that your lifestyle is rotten, too affluent and somehow undeserved (why are you putting tail fins on your car?) - definitely not socialistic enough - and that you better get on with the War On Poverty. Yeah John Kenneth Galbraith, I'm looking at you.
He even posts regular pictures of his doge and blogs about vegetarian menu recipes and the legendary outings with his pal, Stalin, where they remove the kebab.
Even Nokia Siemens Networks is now an un-word.
Oh well. The last action will be the issue of a phone with an additional "Windows" key, then.
And I have to say: I just had a cheapo Nokia Asha in my hand. And I have to say... Do these people write unintuitive dreck interfaces worse than those thrown together by spotty-face sophomores for the fun of it? Is management running interference on correct product design and usability testing? Are there only two developers at Nokia's mobile software division? Is the deep reason of FAIL the northern "third way" semi-socialistic model? It's practically deliberate....
> steampunk Deathstar?
Not enough bronze.
Meanwhile, we have to do with the whole gamut from mercantilism to lawyer-fueled monopolism.
And frankly, in Oracle's place, I would call this unlicensed support "terrorism", because it terrorizes Larry and one never knows to what shady, beturbaned underground figures the proceeds of this fly-by-night support might eventually go. Certainly not into the pocket of upstanding american companies that have nothing to hide.

Yeah, I have a mobile with a specially dedicated "Facebook" key on it... WHY?
I don't even have a data plan.
"Upon which progressotards in the forums saw their hotspots pushed, which were not of the nature liberated in the sexual revolution, rioted and started calling names, verily because their belief systems were bent and twisted and they didn't care about that starstuff when all was said and done."
In that far away galaxy, Space Obama had just announced Space Obamacare, when the Supernova ruined the announcement, rendering healthcare not mandatory but null and void.
This discussion has been had and was buried dead.
Oh God, why?
Dimension = free variable.
In classical space at time "t", 3 real-valued coordinates suffice to describe the position of a "mass point".
With two particles, you need 6 real-valued coordinates. The space of two particles has 6 dimensions! (Why 3 + 3 instead of 3 x 3? Dunno, lol!)
Same here: 27 complex values => 27 dimensions.
Around the time the war in Iraq was won.

Why does one have to explain this? It's like having to explain how a car engine works at a NASCAR meetup.
because it is considered incredibly secure
It is also considered incredibly non-GPL
Someone needs to pay the legals, too.

Unless this is the across-the-pond "liberal" (the dictatorship of the taxing neurotics)
So what was the manufacturing date on the 40'000+ hour drives?
