"... if the bot moves too fast, the game will notice and kick a player out."
There goes my idea to develop an autonomous drone to play the game quickly. Hmmmm, does anyone know the 'speed limit' for a ban?
"... as criminals discovered this technology for smuggling, espionage and terrorist attacks,"
I've read about smuggling by drones (contraband into prisons as an example) but didn't know they'd been used for espionage and terrorist attacks. Anyway, I thought that espionage was performed quite legally by government agencies, as so far have terrorist attacks by drone..
No need to do anything. The earth moved for all of you, so you should all be happy.
.... when I 'played' with PowerPoint, it had a simple scripting control language and you could have 'active' buttons on the slide to do stuff like go to another slide. Hence, I thought, you could make contents, chapter, section, slide no., previous, next, etc links. Do I have some kind of false memory syndrome or could all this be done since ages ago?
"... assembly language routines in lipstick on the mirror in the lavatory ..."
Can I use a chinagraph pencil instead? It's important that my colleagues still talk with me, even though I don't enjoy it when they do.
.... hybridisation and grafting (and probably a few more) for future development. Well done though :)
I was enjoying it and getting quite excited until I read that.
It would be interesting to compare the numbers of non-muslims who are members of the Australian (or any western) police force with the number of non-muslims who have committed a crime. This might allow us to draw conclusions about the criminal tendencies of non-muslims. Then again, it might just be ranting idiocy.
You're not supposed to eat it!
.... six hundred and sixty six different Pokemon entities? Gotta catch 'em all, or else!!
I have a 2TB WD 'green' drive sitting in an adaptor and connected to my small NAS interface. It spins down if you don't access it for about ten minutes. If you do access it then you only have about a six second wait until it spins up and delivers. This is great for my use for it which is as a media library drive.
Does anyone know if WD or anyone else have an equivalent for it?
It certainly is. After you've gone through all the effort, paying close attention to previous documentation as a model and consulting your technical peers, you then have to get it past all the 'stakeholder' mangers, none of whom have shown the slightest interest in it for all the time you've been working on it, even if you begged them to have a quick look to see if it's heading in the right direction.
If there are five stakeholder managers, there will be at least seven different opinions about where you went wrong and how poor the structure is. After that, you'll spend two weeks acting as their typist until a higher level manager demands to know why it isn't ready yet. At that point it will, magically, be 'good enough'.
(There are certain trigger words and phrases that cause me to go on a rant.....)
If you had two qbits, you could theoretically solve 3 - 2 (=1) but how does the superposition of all states (0,1,2,3) collapse to the correct answer? That is the part that I don't understand.
My selfie stick isn't long enough for that.
Are they all the same flavour?
Is that evenly distributed faint texture the CMB radiation or some other artifact?
That means they can compel Tim cook to attend. If they do, can he can bring his Apple legal team to represent him and tie them all up in procedural tape?
If you have likeminded friends or relatives, you can have cloudy personal storage in each others homes to give geographical separation.
It also silences people.
"The cyber reasoning systems will also be networked so they can examine their competitors' software for flaws ... "
Imagine if they were let loose on the internet.
"Walker said DARPA was encouraging hackers to use the source for their own use."
I couldn't help it.
I'd go for a SIEGFRIED or maybe a SIGMUND backronymn. They sound helpful and reliable.
I like the bagless Dyson soul harvester. It's the ultimate IoT device.
You seem to have misunderstood the technical details. Or was it wishful thinking?
The only mention of 'update'. Will they be updated by ZTE or by anyone?
"That sexy interface ..." ?!?
I have to disagree with you there.
"I have records of all the laddies here that swore they WOULD NEVER upgrade to Win-7. Wanna see them?"
You've been storing our comments and data mining them for a long time. Is your real name Microgoog Facetwit? If you show them to us, will targeted adverts be included?
"The official Linux Mint site only offered me 17.3 yesterday - will go looking."
You must have just missed it, LM 18 (stable) was very recently available on Linuxmint.com. Don't worry about the dark colour scheme, you can change it to something less modern and then customise it.
You might prefer the MATE desktop which is more 'traditional' than Cinnamon.
What happens when he dies? How will the computer inherit and administer his estate? What if there are children?
"If anything, this suggests encrypted communications is working – federal and state investigators who need warrants to spy on people are giving up on crypto-secured natter. It's not worth the time."
If encrypted communication is used by criminals and terrorists in performing their evil deeds, then surely they should be spending more time spying on people who use encryption. Then again, it may be that encryption is mostly used by people who don't want the Feds listening in on confidential business discussions or 'romantic' conversations.
You could set up a simple FTP server at home and have FTP clients on all your devices. I did that with an old NSLU2 device (small, solid state, no moving parts) a few years ago and have the clients on my Android phone and my home computer. It works. What it doesn't do is give notification that there has been a new 'document' uploaded but you could sent a text message if it's important.
It's what Nautilus used to be and it's good.
Try looking at their website and learning anything. Really, try it.
I just hope she doesn't feed it after midnight.
Do they report to the Elders of the Internet?
"She also emailed a small amount of this information to her friend, Mr Murphy (not his real name either) who worked with a third party in HR, to assist with her appeal."
Someone in HR assisting with her appeal against her employer??
"Shortly after she submitted her appeal, Mrs Smith’s employer became aware of her actions ..."
What a surprise!
"... the passing gravitational waves only moved the mirrors by ..."
As I understand it, it's not that the mirrors are moved/disturbed but that the 'very fabric of space itself' is compressed then expanded along the direction of propogation of the gravitational wave as it passes by. Hence, a single detector arm can't detect a wave passing at right angles to its axis, so they have two detector arms at right angles to each other. (This rasise the question of what happens if a gravitational wave arrives from vertically above.)
If anyone has a more rigorous or correct explanation then please share it.
"China changes laws everyday , ..."
and they vary from city to city?:
"... and the decision – if allowed to stand – only applies to the city of Beijing itself, ..."
Is this allowed? It shouldn't be.
"... practise good password hygiene and enable two-factor authentication to protect your account ..."
Shouldn't that be ".. OR enable two-factor authentication ..." ?
"... nearly-tamper-proof digital ledger." ... almost impervious to falsification, "
What are the situations/conditions where they can be falsified? Perhaps if the blockchain was under the control of a single entity like a bank or a large corporation?
If he was appointed then surely there is a way to get rid of him? An extreme method would be to tell him he's fired and send security guards in to escort him off the premises. Why can't this be done?
It wasn't a joke, I was serious. If I'd been the one to call the police, I'd have wondered afterwards if I'd done the right thing given what happened.
However, you do make a valid point regarding standard procedure by ambulance crews.
"Officers were called on Tuesday evening by a member of the public who had become concerned about the welfare of the man, who appeared to be injured in the Morfa area."
I bet she wishes she'd called for an ambulance instead.
Olive oil wrestling! Has the injunction been lifted?
"He said youngsters may no longer have the desire to own a car, ..."
If everybody is running an Uber service, nobody will need to own a car. Oh, wait a minute.
Why does a travel agency feel the need to store passport details of its clients for years and years? Are they required to do this by law in japan?
Ok, I remember the bash part but forgot the Ubuntu part. This is happening more often nowadays, I just can't keep up with events.
I remember watching that and talking about it the next day at school. Is it really 45 years ago?
