If we're wishing for the moon, I'll wish for a direct environmentalist->energy converter.
That taboo is going to be insanely hard to break.
Even with synthetic fuel, there's a lot of energy tied up in fossil fuels that would need to come from somewhere in a synthesis process, so it wouldn't/couldn't be an easy fix.
NASA seem pretty confident it's drag:
The winglets themselves are near enough vertical, so they don't really increase projected wing area.
The benefit of the winglets is a reduction in what's called 'induced' drag rather than any increase in lift.
They do this by reducing the strength of the tip vortices (and presumably the amount of energy transferred to them, hence helping efficiency).
Given the growing prevalence of negative interest rates (although they've yet to reach the consumer in most countries) Cash in the matress may start losing value more slowly than cash in the bank.
I wonder if one appeal of moving to cashless societies is that it makes it more practical to deploy negative interest rates come the next economic downturn, as it looks as if they're never going to raise them much if this one ever really finishes.
Outside the urban. Driving at higher, although not IIRC just motorway speeds
The no of patches/month doesn't seem to be decreasing, so some variant of infinity, although the end of the universe will prevent them all being patched.
What kind of infinity needs more maths than I know.
Have you considered the slow Android Studio compilations may be CPU bound?
I found I had to explicitly enable these for each of my VMs. Setting default seems to result in it successfully offering hyper-v mode to windows guests and Kim to Linux guests, which was nice.
I had scaling problems which went away when I updated the box guest additions, or whatever they are called.
You need to enable it in the vm's settings
This year 40% died out. Last year 23% died out. That seems pretty close to the 30% per year average the article considers normal.
I have a horrid feeling you'll never read this, but you can drag Metro apps down to take up say 1/3 of the screen, leaving the classic windows desktop taking up the other 2/3. No need for a second monitor at all
BTDT. They tried parachutes with the Falcon 1. They presumably decided they prefer powered landings, possibly for the potentially better accuracy.
As an aside, note that thrust to weight in this process is greater than 1. The rocket never hovers, but must come to a halt at the bottom of decent as it touches the pad for everything to succeed.
It turns out that tritium is actually rather handy for getting better performance out of a typical nuclear weapon, which in turn lets you build a smaller/lighter thermonuclear weapon.
Trouble is, without the motivation of making better sticks to hit the other monkeys, we wouldn't have got this far technologically :-/
Because the mindless drones return the Word document with tracked changes which need reviewing before you can import it into Scrivener for the structural changes you may need to make?
Quite a few. The centre stage of a Falcon Heavy may end up much further downrange than that of a Falcon 9, at which point not having to do a large U-turn will save lots of fuel/payload.
How are you replacing the off site backup the tapes allowed?
Apple's profitability isn't relevant.
However the App store appears to pay more to developers than Google Play.
That is relevant, although possibly less significant than the relative likelihood of Apple v Android users spending money on O365 subscriptions.
I really rather like my RT tablet. Battery life is good, and apart from the lack of Macro support, the Office implementation is of course excellent. The icing on the cake is that x86 malware goes nowhere.
If you look at say an anandtech tablet review, the display section will discuss black levels.
An LCD screen's idea of black is still pretty bright. :-(
They've got several advantages over a traditional data recovery service. They don't need to buy obscure parts at retail, or buy drives and cannibalise them. Also, there's no need to reverse engineer a drive.
They can probably also offset some cost by using the large sample of failed drives to find frequent failure modes and designing them out of the next generation.
It's also $30-50 for any drive. If 1 in 10 fail and are asked to be recovered, they've got an effective budget of $300-500
people's experience with Lollipop varies widely, and at least in part depends on what you install on. My 2012 Nexus 7 is essentially useless with it installed. A colleague's nexus 4 is perfectly pleasant to use, although he's not finding it the dramatic improvement you are.
10Gb may never run acceptably over some existing cable plant. I've several hundred applications where 2.5/5Gb to the desktop would be a very attractive upgrade, especially if there's some hope of getting the desktop end for "free" with a client refresh.
10Gb has been on the 'will be cheap soon' list for quite some time. It doesn't seem to be getting closer to getting off it.
Get a decent hardware supplier. 1920 x 1200 is still perfectly well available.
IIRC, the Centos 6.x minimal install has wget but no sftpd, and if I were an attacker, I'd rather be trying to attack sftpd than hope the target will run wget carelessly.
Are you sure? NT 4 was available on MIPS, PowerPC and Alpha as well as IA-32 wasn't it?
To be contrarian, I can see an argument for systemd on a desktop, where I may reboot it often. I typically don't reboot servers frequently, so I'm unconcerned about a fast boot, but I value being able to debug the startup process of a broken server with a shell and a text editor, which I can do with sys V init scripts, but can't do with systemd.
ABS was outlawed in F1 as a performance aid, which tells me that the best drivers can't outperform it on dry and presumably wet tarmac. Outperforming it in snow however is essentially impossible.
> There are many many jobs out there that don't involve using Microsoft software, or even computers.
most of the latter are on borrowed time until people in the former finish writing shell scripts.
I think I'd rather have no network connection and out of date AV signatures. One less way in for thieves.
It needn't necessarily, but a kitchen sink approach might reboot the host, which would at the very least require a VM to be suspended. What BTW has KVM got to do with XEN ?
There's presumably also a bash vulnerability on the host....
I doubt it, that shouldn't _require_ a reboot, and the top entry at http://xenbits.xen.org/xsa/ looks deeply suspicious.
Reading this article - which I found fascinating, I'm left wondering how many of the health issues associated with breast implants are actually due to the silicon implants, and how many due to the surgery disturbing near sleeping dogs. :-(
I've worked on late stage proof reading of novel length documents (admittedly generally technical documents). Paper and a pen is rather more flexible than track changes.
If you read this post by Charlie:
he mentions having written several novels using vim (vi improved). I've read at least two of those novels. They're pretty good.
"Won't happen, simply because of the rage it would cause from Microsoft's large corporate cash cow customers, many of whom will only ever install security updates."
How would you describe the new IE patch/release/support policy then? There's Enterprise mode as a mitigation, but I suspect it won't be 100% - even the MS web site describing it says " designed to emulate Internet Explorer 8,"
I suspect that the next step from this will be to remove the separation between feature updates and security updates. That will make development easier, and going forward, MS' internally perceived competition is rather more nimble than they are.
If they don't do this, testing a growing complexity of interaction between different levels of installation of security updates and UI/feature updates will become a huge problem. Look at the way they're dropping support for 8.1 pre update 1 - they're trying to manage the variety of system configurations they need to test against.
I think the death of a thousand cuts may be better. Infrastructure left alone for a decade builds up all sorts of odd undocumented dependencies and peculiarities (only fred in accounting has the serial key for this software for example). Organisations also lose the skills to perform platform changes over a decade of stagnation.
A steady rolling refresh over every few years reduces these problems. Compare eating a sensible diet and going for a walk each day to eating nothing for a month while running 5 miles each day. Either approach will leave you thin, but one is much more pleasant than the other.
I couldn't live with the range, but I'd love to be able to buy that windscreen as an optional extra.
The ridiculous thing here is that Colossus (Which is what the computer museum has) is arguably a computer; a Bombe, which is what Bletchley is exhibiting, isn't.
It's almost as if the wrong organisation is getting all the sponsorship.
I want your anorak :-)
Are you sure it's a 'B' ? There's precious little visual difference between b,c or early d until the bubble hood was introduced part way through d production.
It's a P-47 Thunderbolt..
Given how many security vulnerabilities XP, 7 and 8 have had in common, calling XP a decrepit pile of old code is also a comment on 7 and 8.
lists up to 4TB.
