The tree of life is self pruning.
Agile tends to foster good communication WITHIN a team and makes it easier for everyone to engage with the project;
Pure double speak bullsh*t, this is just another way that agile is used to blame the development team.
What! it failed!!!!! You devs must have failed to communicate!!!! BAD DEVS
Totally disagree with your disagreement.
Never worked in an Agile project that actually worked.
Currently working on project, seen two attempts to deliver, now on the third and still no delivery. Agile is an excuse for having no idea how to do something and just starting and attempting to learn on the job.
In the real world when you have a multi million dollar project with a fixed functionality, fixed time frame and fixed budget agile doesn't work.
The agile approach is to start with an undefined idea, no requirements, stuff around for ages, waste a lot of money then deliver some flaky stuff that does something. This might be ok for a startup where the stuff delivered becomes hipster and takes off for a couple of months. But if you are a real world bricks and mortar place with real stuff to do with people and suppliers to pay then build your software using the same techniques as you would build a building, dam etc. Start with a set of solid requirements functional and NON-functional, plan it cost it then start building. At least you will have a chance of getting it built on time and on schedule.
Just because we can't find it doesn't mean it doesn't exist.
One option is to do the maths to see if this type of phenomena could explain dark matter / dark energy...
IT angle, 'nough said...
civilian citizen of good character And what the hell defines that! I've been in the states and from where I was the only definition of good was you went to the right church.
The fact that they may go to church is certainly no indication of being good, just ask those screwed over by the catholic priests...
Religion and guns are a bad mix.
Satire... We are talking about Americans here, aren't we?
centuries the language used in diplomacy was french..
Only in Europe.
I have no idea how far a meter is, it would depend on the size of the actual meter and maybe the type; audio, RF, voltmeter, amp meter, water meter...
I suspect you mean metre which is an actual unit of distance.
One day americans will get to understand metric...
Dropped cat with piece of buttered toast tied to its back.
>Which is why you have a contract...
Yea, right. What isn't included is excluded and if it is included there will be so many caveats around the inclusion that the whole thing means you a screwed.
Those who can do, those who can't teach (or set exams)...
That is nasty! I have a copy of pet rats and they are nice, clean, honest and cuddly. To imply that politicians are rats is an insult to rats.
>c# is great
C# is like having sex with too many condoms...
>Best give her machine the full AV treatment just to be sure she hasn't just installed a rather crafty piece of malware...
Nah, she is safe, W10 is the malware!
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.
