Calibration is a regular part of any scientific instrument, both internal (do sensors respond in a reasonable way) and external (check against various known results from a totally different instrument using different software).
No, W10 was Klingon software. It was not released, but escaped leaving a bloody trail of design engineers and quality assurance testers in its wake.
The mind boggles at what he would get if he asked for scrumpy
Context matters with memory. I had an instance inside a bank where I needed my banking PIN, but could not remember it.
I stepped outside to the ATM and it the memory came bank instantly.
If Lauri has the same thing he might need to sit in front of his computer to remember the code
I think you mean 21st century
These guys & gals all come from two universities: Stellenbosch (locally known as Maties) an Witwatersrand (Wits for short).
Somebody is clearly doing something right in those two institutions.
Why would anybody sitting in a burning aircraft take the time to photograph the burning engine?
Cats were looked upon as gods in ancient Egypt. They still remember.
was it off the shoulder of Orion?
Chinese one is BeiDou, but its coverage is only useful around Asia/Australasia
I would be happier about all this IOT crap if it used open protocols and had sensible firewalls setup as default. It would also need battery backups for 'mission critical' parts (locks and firewall)
.. and about as comfortable.
As an aside I am sick of "1 size fits all" in socks too - my (UK) size 11 feet will not fit into something that was not too baggy for somebody with a size 7. Software is often similar, in that a small app to handle 50 items in a static list will not need the same infrastructure as one for dynamic database of millions of items. GUIs that look acceptable on a tiny screen may look like crap on a big screen with decent resolution.
The here was the one who changed the original version and not use a copy
USA or China - a touch one. Corporatist or Capitalist?
I had heard of smoking dogs (beagles) before - i think he misinterpreted
HAHAHAHA - nice piece of sarcasm there.
It was sarcasm, right?
anything less than 3 standard deviations is undecided. Only believe anything above 5.
Computers have their uses (for engineering and science) to grasp the meaning of the maths and examine real data.
I personally never understood the Runge-Kutta method until I could graph it on a computer.
Children and Family Court Advisory and Support Service (Cafcass);
Financial Conduct Authority;
Gangmasters Licensing Authority;
NATS (an air traffic control provider);
Natural Resources Wales;
Scottish Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals; and
I can sort of understand Cafcass and maybe the SSPCA, but am puzzled by the others.
"up to" translates to "never more than" or "less than" in most cases
They have probably picked up our radio stations and decided that we are not the neighbours that they want to be friendly with - see icon
"cloud first, mobile first" is turning out to be cloud servers running some version of Linux and mobile running Android or iOS.
Well citizen, I think you are going to get a lot of scrutiny in Airstrip One and everywhere else in Oceania.
Remember: Ignorance is Strength
4711e17 (or 4.711e20) sounds like a hell of a lot of steps. If each step takes 1 second that wold be more than a thousand times the age of the universe.
must be tone deaf or totally deaf. That noise is truly nasty.
I am pretty sure it was April 2016
1) Even in Africa, everyone with a job can buy a smartphone -see 3
2) I have seen no compelling new features since a decent camera was there
3) From about $50 you can buy a new low end smart phone 'landfill android'; second hand is cheaper still.
4) When everyone has a smartphone, where's the status - they all look pretty similar
There is no site I trust enough to download a banking app from.
Can't imagine this being a huge source of income for cybercriminals
If I remember correctly these nano-surfaces basically act like a series of spikes that puncture the cell walls of the bacteria- it is a physical rather than a chemical attack.
Liquid Nitrogen! Let's suffocate everyone!
Maybe more fun, liquid oxygen. BURN that titanium case
What, no encryption ?
pythons don't bite, they crush
Does that mean that .NET programming is satanic?
We recently had a power supply for server class machine sent to us with NO BEARINGS in the fan; apparently the manufacturer had to specially request a version without bearings to shave a couple of $'s off the cost.
Needless to say they failed after a few hundred hours of operations,
Lightning is totally to be expected in clouds. Not the other stuff
- What ever happened to "Live free or Die" and ”He who would trade liberty for some temporary security, deserves neither liberty nor security” from the founding fathers of the USA

I thought it was Orion?
I could mention names, but the list would be too long
bots trolling on chat sites for their own amusement
bots seeking 'meaningful relationships' on dating sites
bot-to-bot conversations (like shop assistants, ignoring the clients)
bots muttering to themselves in the gutters of the digital highway (with the occasional "spare a bitcoin gov")
What about trial by combat (no champions allowed). One lawyer claims it was never repealed in the USA.
That would be a spectacle seeing CEOs really earn a bonus (assuming either one survives).
I would prefer the mace and shield version, but I would allow that for the defendant to pick.
For a horrible moment I thought Our Alistair was going to be cut down in his prime

Why would there be a problem tracking a train?
