When I were a lad I had to make my own converters. My coco 3 rgb worked with nothing (except their own crappy monitor). I got hold of an Amiga monitor, built my own cable from mud and stout maple trees (and a 74ls02 to swap hsync). Aye, and I considered myself lucky.
At this very moment the Martians are preparing the Illudium Q-36 Explosive Space Modulator to blow up the planet Earth (for obstructing their view of Venus).
Still have a Color Computer III with 2 disk drives I pull out occasionally. There is still active development on the NitrOS-9 operating system for it.
I googled Brazilian pussy and didn't see any cat pictures. I'll keep looking though.
I like the rebooted Dr. Who. The special effects are not overdone in my opinion. In any case, this episode seems to have something to do with the time war and I admit to some curiosity about this portion of the Doctor's life.
I'd think life would be more likely to evolve around underwater thermal vents, given that there are organisms there that exist on chemicals in the water, don't need light etc. Wouldn't that environment more closely approximate the early earth?
Haven't read the paper but a plausible explanation occurs to me. When you place two containers of differing temperature liquids in the freezer, the cooler one will gain heat energy from the energy the hotter one is losing, and may actually rise in temperature ( or at least cool at a slower rate). This condition will persist until the two containers reach an equilibrium. At that point the one that started out hot will cool faster because it has lost more mass due to a higher evaporation rate.
Want to have some fun with the office printer and screw with your coworkers at the same time? This only works with HP compatible printers with a display on the printers front panel. Google around for a file called HPNT.EXE and use it thusly.

Be sure to use your printers IP address.

Maybe network activity blabbing about the owner.
I'll be 80 years old by then so it'll either be a heck of a way to go out or funny as hell watching all the nutbars panic.
I remember, when I was a younger man, dating the mother of a 10 year old boy. I remember him screaming in frustration and throwing the Nintendo controller into the TV screen over some game he was having trouble with. I can picture iphones flying over this.
Perhaps a good way to distract a charging rogue elephant. Point emphatically in any direction that doesn't lead to you while shouting "Hey elephant! Look! Look over there!". Then madly dash in the other direction.
How can they seize bitcoins? I thought they were held in a secure "wallet".
The mountains are made of unobtainium.
kinda gives new meaning
to the phrase "stick a fork in him...he's done".
Spent a lot of time distro hopping, sampling the various flavors of Linux, a few years ago. One day I found Mint 7 and was shocked at how well done it was. Mint 7 was actually a viable desktop replacement for Windows. In those days Mint was only based on Ubuntu, though a much improved version of Ubuntu. After Mint 8, I thought I'd try Debian as both Ubuntu, and consequently Mint, were based off that. Its the only distro I use now and has put the fun back into computing for me. I like being able to totally customize my desktop and use strictly XFCE.
Happy birthday Debian!
Been hitting the Molson's a little early today?
It makes sense
It says right there on the site - free power, free software. I think they are promoting it as free power + free software = freedom (also, presumably, freedom from malware). Even their video, which I liked, seems to be aimed at people who spend a lot of time outdoors (more freedom than office drones).
When the weather's hot and sticky, that's no time for dunking dickie.
When the frost is on the punkin', that's the time for dickie dunkin'.
I was talking to a North Korean the other day and we were arguing about who has the freest state. I told him I could walk into the President's office and pound on his desk and say "Mr. President, I don't like the job you are doing". The North Korean laughed and said he could do that too. Dumbfounded, I asked "Really?". and he replied "Certainly, I can walk into Glorious Presidents office, pound on his desk and say Mr. President, I don't like the job the American President is doing!".
What about fat?
A good burger needs a certain amount of fat to make it really delicious.
Here in Canada
Hab fans are to be looked down upon, denigrated and ridiculed - especially when they lose to the beloved Leafs.
There are pictures of the crime circulating - one of the reasons she felt persecuted. If the rapists faces are in any of the pictures, or if they are identifiable through the pictures, and the crown still didn't proceed then something is wrong. It is ultimately the crown who decides whether or not to proceed with charges. If the mounties didn't do their job properly then the blames lies with them.
I laughed at how the Americans are portrayed in the video and - oh noes - the secret formula for coke!
What did that critter evolve from - thin air? There had to be something a little bit less mammalian for that to evolve from - maybe some kind of monotreme-like critter.
Those GoPro cameras are fantastic
They're everywhere today.
They don't seem to have taken into account the head movement that usually accompanies vomiting - straight out, followed by a downward arcing spew, ending at the feet. Also, what about consistency, watery or chunky? How can we take this research seriously? Keyboard for, well, you know.
Lets you send a phone message from Santa. Have fun.
I for one
welcome our new robotic arm controlling cyborg overlords.
Perhaps if he had performed the contracted work in a timely and professional manner he wouldn't have gotten a bad review. Maybe if he had attempted to make things right with his client, she wouldn't have raked him over the coals online. However, I don't want to just say everything is his fault because I know from personal experience that you just can't please some people. She may have kept adding more work or changes to the original contract and didn't want to pay anything extra for it.
If you don't support gay marriage this could happen.
Well, looks like the Underpants Gnomes have figured out step 2.

You forgot to mention that the Liberal party under Jean Chretien signed the Kyoto Accord and then did ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to meet Canada's goals under the accord - for 8 years. Don't try to blame Harper for the failure of Kyoto in Canada, put the blame where it really lies - at the feet of Canada's Liberal Party. Canadians want to look after the environment, but not at the expense of impoverishing ourselves.
Be sure to show pics of the statement, when it arrives, for us folks on the left of the Atlantic.
Is Shit his family name or his given name. Don't the Chinese put the surname first? If that is the case then there must be plenty of Shits in China, probably plenty of little Shits too. Maybe there is a monk in the family, addressed as Holy Shit no doubt. That ought to get you started.
Even if it is from Curiosity, it would still be part of an alien craft.
A Dyson sphere
Would be at the radius of the originating planet (ours would have a radius of 93 million miles). It would allow 100% energy conversion. If our technology couldn't handle that much energy it could be radiated into space by heat sinks. My problem is that any civilization that could construct a Dyson sphere - why would they want to? If you control enough energy to construct a Dyson sphere, then you don't really need one. That would be the kind of thing that might happen in an entropic universe at the end of its life. To address one more of the previous points, there is a possibility that we are the first intelligent species to arise in our galaxy - note that I said first, not only. If we were the only, then maybe there is a ?deity. If we are the first, then we should set an example by not spewing the waste products that pass for entertainment, all over the galaxy. Now if you'll excuse me I'm going to make another rye and coke (and my buddy seems to be doing something with some cigarette papers).
They are only less balanced
If you are on the side of the warming people. In other news, skeptics find climate reports by mainstream media biased. I'm firmly in the "not convinced yet, but willing to listen" camp. I'd probably go with the "humans are bad" group if 54 years on this planet hadn't made me cynical. Young people have too much respect for "scientists" who are all too willing to get their name in the paper. These "scientists" aren't any smarter than me, just have different disciplines. Politicians have actually gone to the well one time too many for me and I absolutely won't support any "carbon" plan that costs me more money - I don't have any more I can spare.
