No need to have hot water at all it just encourages bacteria growth. To Kill bacteria you would probably need water hot enough to blister the skin. Use soap with cold water and not only will you kill the germs but also reduce your carbon footprint.
The hot water probably has to be that hot to stop germs forming in the tank. They could use a local electric water heater by the sink which could be set cooler though.
Normally when analysing data like this you would split the dates into a series of sets si they may be referring to each set. Alternatively they may be using multiple algorithms. The accuracy refers to the false positive rate. So based on search results that aren't for the cancer they can give between 6 and 32% of people a go see your doctor now warning with only a false rate of 1 in 100000.
Or was anyone else transported back to days of watching max headroom.
"will be approximately 0.014 mAh”
So that would be 14µAh, then ?
Yes but that's per advertisement. If the router or routers are advertising once every ten seconds then that would equate to 5mahr or 100% more than the sleep current.
Of course the items they quote aren't specifically covered by health and safety there are very few specific rules about this apart from duty of care by both the employer and employee, so risk assessments and appropriate actions etc.
The no salt with tequilla example is a case in point. Of courses there is no rule that covers this but perhaps the bar found that spilled salt was causing a slippage problem in the bar after a heavy session and customers had been falling. The action they take could be to clean up rather than ban it, but perhaps putting out signs to trip over and mopping the floor in a busy nightclub would be impractical, or using one of those urinal mats and equal tripping hazard or just plain ugly, hence the decision to stop the practice.
You could bet a customer slipping over on a salt spillage and hurting themselves would sue the bar for allowing the floor to become slippy.
Been trying to do it for months on Sons Toshiba but it just gets to the end of the install then says something wrong and rolls back. Doh
the Use case is 720 people being able to download the UltraHD movie at the same time. Though I gues with the protocol overhead and such like its more like 72.
There are definitely situations where the switching of bands is used. Siemens use a dual band architecture in their wireless fire alarms. This allows them to meet the German VDS standard. Several other such platforms exist in the fire industry that also do this as they get a bigger allowance on attenuation and can therefore install with a longer range between nodes.
The bands used tend to be 868 and 433 rather than 2.4G but 2.4G hass advantages being more universal.
Does this also now mean that photographers can now no longer take pictures in public spaces unless they contain no identifiable faces. I can see lots of policeman taking cameras and citing data protection laws now.
A supplier of very large magnets and refrigerant.
This hasselblad produces a 1.2GB Raw which could grow when processed.
Apart from a shed load of gobbledygook, a demand for your pin number, mother's maiden name, a request for money and finally notification you have won the state prize in a lottery you never entered.
You haven't got a Nexus 4 by any chance. Mines constantly freezing with a blank screen requiring me to turn off then back on.
Thankfully the long off press always seems to work, this must be either hardware controlled or have a separate controller.
Don't forget all those high income pop-stars, footballers etc who will heavily skew the result as well. The average premier league footballer earns 1.6 million and I bet greater than 90% have Iphones (made up statistic alert).
You and your friends may be in the higher income bracket but obviously not high enough to not worry about things like value for money.
That being said, I have an Android device and my wife's carer and the carer's daughter both have IPhones.
I though this but the numbers still add up to quite a bit. If I assume an average of 0.5 watts on standby I have 5 TVs so 2.5w. Assuming 25 million households with a similar number of sets gives 62.5megawatts. Not near the top of powerplant production but still sizeable. Ok I do turn off the sets at the switch but I'm probably in the minority. Add on all the mobile phone chargers laptop chargers microwave clocks etc etc etc and it all adds up.
But the patent says "At least a portion of the memory may be located in the processor." not that it is located in the memory just that some portion and only may be.
Anyway how is this different from putting a Spectrum on a chip and changing the language from basic to JAVA. Thats just a progression based on the fact that previously microcontrollers wouldn't have enough memory for this and now they do. Can anyone see what the novel bit is.
See those people who were sceptical or didn't believe in the age of the earth presented in a survey the other month were right. Whose laughing now. Actually they probably don't care. Another few years and they'll have added another billion or so years and we will all be saying how naive the scientists were to believe their guesses.
Simple explanation. Every op code in arm will have a direct or very similar mapping to an op code in x86 so already both will be the same performance, excepting process differences, any extra will then come down to memory bandwidth utilisation. This is where the cisc architecture then kicks in as a single opcode(OK it may be multiple words) is then converted to multiple intermediate instructions but using less bandwidth on the bus.
So true, of course early limited versions could be missused, of course the best was QL Superbasic where the following could be done
for f = 1,3,-7, 15 to 12 step -1
It wass fully procedural and I wrote a Superbasic subset compiler in it (only integer arithmatic) for my A levels which was faster than the comercially available supercharge compiler.
Not only that but goto exists in C so you can, and people do write spaghetti code in C. What is it with open source stuff where people insist that all variables can be a maximum of 2 character long.
QL rules yeah ( except that useless graphics layout)
Oh good only a few more years and it will have expired then.
"None of this had anything to do with online banking.."
Isn't that the joke?
You just reminded me of this
Old but always relevant.
The question is "mostly because of man made heat trapping gasses" I think most non-experts would say they are not sure because they don't know the other causes or what percentage.
I know the world is old but is it 4.5 Billion or 3.5 billion, the question doesn't say this is what is scientists hold as a fact and do they agree with it, it doesn't event say approximately 4.5billion years.
And due to the half life of facts things like the big bang could be replaced by something else in 50 years time so you would be right to be doubtful if you don;t follow the latest cosmological discoveries.
Is a preamble to the questionnaire missing saying theses statements are currently regarded as the truth by researchers in the respective areas?
"This is not as difficult as it might seem at first and doesn't entail physically opening up a target machine, "
So how do they tether a mobile phone via USB to an ATM without physically opening it. Do they have USB slots on the front in Mexico.
But this was censored by the publisher not"Europe", or any ratings body. The only scenes removed for legal reasons is the depiction of swastikas for the German market where this is illegal.
OK first off II admit it I haven't read the patent but it doesn't normally help as I can't quite work out what exactly they are patenting wrapped up in all the obfuscation,banality and referenced prior art.
Anyway, good smoke detectors can detect any aging effects in its LED by increasing the current supplied. This can also be used to overcome contaminant build up. The detector can then signal it needs cleaning or reach end of life back to the panel, the panel could have remote management to inform the maintenance people as well.
Rf circuitry requiring tight tolerance crystals may also apply compensation based on the aging of crystals used in the system.
I should think a lot of what NASA do with their rovers also has similar capabilities.
Of course they seem to be adding that the changes applied are orchestrated by a remote computer in some way but that just doesn't seem novel enough to me, but then I'm not a patent layer. It just seems like feedback to me.
Instead of take previous invention from a computer and apply to a mobile device we now take sensors from a mobile device and apply them to a phone. WOW I wish I had thought of that. I guess the hard part is known which ideas are worth patenting and which I would think are obvious and not worth patenting. Perhaps I just can't afford the fees, or the lawyers.
Give the laptop to the kids for a few months then the attrition rate may rise. Though I wouldn't store critical data on it.
Tried replacing with an OCZ SSD but had to go back to spinning rust as when the Mint distribution closed unexpectedly more often than not it took the file system with it. Hopefully Toshiba improve their S/W.
Ready for whoever buys catcher in the rye.
Games are generally used to escape actual life. Nowadays some people use twitter and Facebook to escape real life after all you can troll, bulshit and bully in perfect anonimity, if it all goes wrong then create a new account and start the game again.
Perhaps you should try a quick poll of your work colleagues., For those who have young families ask them if they would rather be at home with the kids or at work leaving their partner to look after them. See how the answers compare between men and women in the office and between those who seem to be getting the better assignments/bigger wages etc.
As others have said you can work all hours for the company, concentrate on the family or you can decide to have a "good" work/home balance whatever that may be,. Trying to work all hours for the company while doing the family thing can work for a while but you probably end up exhausted. The thing is when the man concentrates on the work he will feel less guilt about it (at least at the time, they may feel delayed guilt years later).
Those that work just the hours required so they can get back to the family make that decision and will rightly or wrongly not normally be promoted above others.
I wonder if Phoummala thinks her male colleagues are also wrestling with their work life balance or are they either 1) single 2) have no kids 3) find it a quieter life at work.
The problem is you are trying to compete in an industry with men who on the whole enjoy the job more than being with the family and will see the job as a way of avoiding them. For them having to work extra means having more fun and not having to put up with the kids.
"I can afford a Porche Cayenne" but apparently not fully comp with legal cover.
Reinstalled mint several times after unexpected shutdowns caused an unrecoverable missing file system error on an ocz drive. finally got a spinning disk and no troubles since. Do miss the speed though.
Finally we can all benefit from the Google Gmail enhancements
I've used powershell for non sys admin things such as creating unique build numbers on a shared project every time a build was executed. I ran into the execute script privilege problem. I found however I could run a batch file With a single line contains the whole script. Is this a security issue otherwise why prevent me executing the script in the first place.
Nice link to the panoramic picture. Didn't realise a small earthquake had hit London though.
Presumably the key would be based on the account details you streamed or downloaded the video with in the first place.
Filters only work to a specified limit. Normally this would be the adjacent channel limit and may be specified as a number of dB at a certain frequency from the wanted frequency this may be 40db at 1mhz for instance rising to 50db at 10mhz. If an interferer is therefore 40db above the wanted signal you will have a problem. Better filters are bigger and more expensive. On top of this 4G puts out a lot of power and spreads out into adjacent channels that were once used for TV and other bands as well and this can't be filtered out so easily.
That's what I want to know. How are they simulating hundreds or thousands of handsets silk doing different things at different locations. I think the rest is fairly meaningless until there is widespread uptake by users. Perhaps it's so they can claim no one complained when we did the tests and it will be too late to claim when enough users generate enough traffic to cause an issue.
You obviously didn't have to wait for a line to be installed pre- nationalisation then.
Its a re-purposed Psion Quill cartridge that I ought a job lot of when Dixons were clearing the stock. I have a bunch of assembly macro code on them.
I first bought the Wafadrive for the Spectrum as I liked the idea of the extra ports and cheaper cartridges. Got it home and it didn't work; apparently not compatible with version 3 Spectrums, so I went back and bought the microdrives and was amazed at the near instant loading of Ant Attack a fiendishly difficult game to learn to play at the time.
The challenge was of course to spend hours loading programs of cassette to convert to microdrive. Often having to split the program and move sections around using the screen as spare memory as the copy protection methods of the original program would load over every spare byte of memory including the microdrive extensions to the spectrum code.
I upgaded to a QL later and and i think I managed to get the two to talk over the interface one network and inbuilt QL network but I seem to remember they never really played well together.
Oh the memories they were great days, if only the QL didn't have possibly the worst screen memory layout in the world ever which made the under powered, yet beautiful to code, 68008 processor a hard time to do anything grahically entertaining.
But the you could amplify after the filter bringing back the wanted signal. Lower snr but stands a chance of having the desired affect.
Microsoft had it right at windows 3.1 it seems with the programming manager
About 7 years based on your £200 price 15p a unit and 9 hours a day 365 days a year and a 90W consumption by the CRT.
If Ofcom defined the usage within this band to be broadly compatible with the american 902-928 taking into account the narrower band then economies of scale would be better. The front end antenna amplifiers and matching would be the same with maybe a filter change for differing adjacent band requirements. The loss of the Dutch region would then be inconsequential.
My 8 year old has found an even better way to waste more man hours
Needed to outsource the proof reading to China then await the return of it on a slow boat.
People seem to be confusing lots of things. The cost of a chip is generally very little except when maybe first produced on a new process. The costly part is the R&D in developing that IP then getting a return for it, so a device may only cost a few $ or less but the IP may be worth tens of dollars.
If as someone says Apple wants $24 for effectively rounded corners and a mainly screen tablet then I think it is probably fair that in order to make a phone call or transfer data is worth more after all by its nature it is essential unlike rounded corners.
Non-Discriminatory does not mean that one company pays the same as another. It is appropriate that a company that uses more licenses than another gets a better discount or that a company with a poor credit rating pays more, so for example Samsung sells many more phones than Apple so may expect a bigger discount than Apple. Apple on the other hand don't have a good track record on paying licenses to Motorola so they may see them as a risk until proven otherwise.
Non Discriminatory means that negotiations should be entered into in the same manner with access not conditional on different things. For example giving one player special deals based on signing early.
