Must have had problems with moms cooking!
If you are going to use an external sensor then it is much easier to use a hardware random generator. Most electronic circuits generate noise especially shot noise, this can be enhanced and it will generate a stream of random 1 and 0s.
Just google hardware random number generator for circuits.
Hey, MonkeyCee the hydro plants in New Zealand that have been mothballed or dismantled were all old and small and most were closed down over 60 years ago and were under 1 MW. Most of the current shutdown plants were thermal.
5452 MW Hydro
2413 MW Thermal
1014 MW Geothermal
685 MW Wind
68 MW Bio
3400 MW Wind
1000 MW Thermal
285 MW Hydro
250 MW Geothermal
210 MW Tidal
I was fly in fly out implementing a new banking package. I didn't get massive amounts of money but over a million frequent flight points, accommodation points and loads of free accommodation for a good hotel chain.
We didn't spend much on holidays for a couple of years.
Been badly burnt, had a black die under warranty, got a replacement then it failed under warranty. I'm now majorly gun shy of anything WD.
>In which case they also need to ban stuff such as crossword puzzles, synonyms and doublespeak.
Also all forms of advertising.
Try hydro, geothermal...
Also solar is no longer inefficient, with wind, solar and tidal you actually don't need constancy of supply, you need consistency of generation as you basically make hay while the sun shines (or wind blows) and store the hydrogen.
As long as you are able to generate X MW and use it to produce n tons of hydrogen a week then no problem.
Slack is a pain, you can't spam filter it so you get all the rubbish and cute cat pictures.
The title says it all...
Agile start with a vague idea of what you want then just do it. Empower the team so that everyone is responsible for the failure. Wander thru the wilderness with no direction.
Then when it craps out blame the developers because the requirements were crap, this is just like blaming the stokers in the engine room of the Titanic for crashing into the iceberg.
>Why do you assume it wasn't a train at 5:17 AM?
Because it wasn't 05:17...
Try Lake Taupo in the middle of the north island of New Zealand, that is also a super volcano and it contains about 8 geothermal power stations.
>I think we have a number of bunker busters in the inventory. "You can hide but we'll find you."
Not if the OS of the bunker busters is W10....
HAL turn on the radar.
Sorry Dave, I can't do that.
If you consider Etihad rank don't go anywhere near Qantas...
>Also restrictive. Only one "pharmacy"/Chemist can actually do prescription
That may not be the Mall, it might be a ruling from the Pharmaceutical Guild.
It is that evil Di-hydrogen Monoxide!
It is 250 grams! bugger primitive archaic non standard not useful measurements. Can someone please drag the US (and sometimes the UK) into the 21st century!
I have two very cuddly rats, the advantage of having rats is it keeps the mice away. Before we had the rats we had mouse problems, now no mice. Must be some sort of scent thing.
If you can do it to drones what about bloody helicopters! I have the bloody sods hovering directly over the house all the bloody time. The response from the media companies is along the line of "It is in the public interest".
Here in aus we are starting horse racing season and we end up with a local park as a helipad transporting the "well to do" to and from the various race courses, we have bloody take offs and landings every couple of minutes and one of the flight paths is directly over the suburb.
Use pet hair especially dog hair in carpet as a standard test. First time I got a dyson home with the rotating brush we were gob smacked with the amount of dog hair that the other (sanyo) vacuum had missed.
>Ps and I refuse to call football soccer, you kick the ball with feet thus it's called football.
Actually you can use any body part as long as it is not your hands. You can use your head, chest, bum etc that means soccer should be called nonhand ball.
I gave up with radio years ago, all ego and adverts!
Classic big blue cock-up. under estimated the requirements (odds on it was deliberate, lock down scope while knowing what is proposed will not work), they would have also thought they could outsource everything to india.
>Countries that allow their workforce to enjoy a glass or three of wine at lunch should not be permitted to write software.
You mean like the UK, we always just wandered down the road to the pub for cob and a beer. I was always more productive after lunch.
The US on the other hand with these "brown bag" lunch meetings, total waste of time and always started the afternoon in a bad mood wanting to kill some sodding project manager who considered lunch to be "free unproductive time".
The farmers in NZ are doing quite well, especially the dairy farmers.
>The US has large areas that are safe
You mean like Texas!
>The fact that Pluto has a techtonily active crust (Mercury and Mars don't) should rank Pluto above them on the planet list
No, there are moons Europa and Titan that have tectonically active crusts that are bigger than pluto.
>What Turnbull is saying is that many people are happy with their existing broadband and do not want to pay more for something even if it is much faster, presumably because what they already have is enough.
BS I've got an old ancient inner city copper connection that is a flaky as all hell, every time it rains or we have an extreme weather event connectivity drops out and/or slows down.
When it is running at full speed it usable (just), but full speed is a very rare event.
The big problem with SDR is the extremely wide barn door front end. Try to pick up a low level signal 10-15 kHz from a massive broadcast signal. Not a chance, the large broadcast signal just swamps the front end.
>Ban ban ban
Sounds like the state of Victoria...
There is only so much catholic guilt rock you can take before you are either full or top yourself!
"I don't know what the mechanism will be to switch from one virtual SIM card to another, maybe you scan a QR code or you download it as an email attachment or something like that"
What part of this don't you understand! This is a huge security hole!
"Maybe you scan a QR code or something. I don't know. But your pessimism is unjustified."
How incredibly insecure!
I can just see it, "Scan this QR code for discount voucher" Oops, you just changed carrier to some ultra expensive ripoff! Doh!
>Windows-as-a-service will run on your hardware
Then they will be paying me rent for the use of my hardware.
This will be no bloody good if your so called broadband (IE Australian Infrastructure) is crap.
>If you have solar and have not installed batteries you are being subsidized by everyone else (usually the poor!)
BS! The rate at with they buy your solar power is less than the wholesale rate! No one is subsidising you! If you have solar cells in Aus you are a sucker as you are a supplier of cheap power to the retail companies.
>Smith says for most people the addition of a backup battery isn't a great value proposition.
>“By and large, most residential customers in cities and urban areas have a pretty robust connection,” he said.
That is not the issue, the problem is any power you produce is being sold to the power company and a crap rate, you then buy it back at a much higher rate.
At least with a battery you can use all of then power you generate so in effect you are getting full retail price for what you generate rather that the minuscule amount that the power company will pay.
This is what happens when you use agile to manage a project. You get something just good enough based on requirements that wander all over the place with QA that only tests the best cases....
I need a beer!
Subscription because then we can turn it off to force you to buy an update...
Started with AAPT now iiNet will be reviewing contract... enough said...
>The only thing common to all of the callers is a distinct sub continental accent.
With me that is an immediate hang-up, no questions nothing...
The back of watch could be coated with nickel.
There are some people that have a reaction to nickel that is in long term contact with skin. Had a friend that had problems with glasses.
>Copyright Unilateral National Taskforce Section
Major thumbs up for this!
I wonder if the Indiana "Freedom of Religion" also includes "Freedom from Religion"?
If it doesn't then we have classic religious hypocrisy...
>Metadata retention is advanced as a way to stop Australians being harmed, or killed, by terrorists or criminals.
Wrong, Metadata is to allow hollywood to go after download pirates. The 5 eyes already provide all the data required to catch terrorists and crims.
They want to make the ISPs pay as punishment because they won't help the poor mega rich studios...
According to Snowden the governments already have the whole telecom infrastructure hacked so why should the ISPs be forced to store data that the government has already collected.
Or is this just some BS to attempt to cover-up what they are really doing.
If this is how governments work then why should the telecom companies be forced to store metadata. The government already has it.
Do you think I can download a recovery image... NO WAY. I will never go near acer again.
