"Dafuq did I just read? How do you combine logical sectors to create a physical sector?"
There has been a shockingly consistent run of typo-free articles lately. This one reminds me of the site I've come to know and love.
Jesus is considered a prophet in Islam. The only Muslims that would deny service to a Christian would be those that were as stupid as the Christians pushing for this law thinking it allows them to use it as a shield for their own prejudices.
Dude, you have a state-sanctioned lock on crazy, or didn't you read this article? One of the few groups being discriminated against are athiests; we don't get to take the worst parts of ourselves and say our overlords made us this way. You'd think y'all would be happy to put your businesses on a list so that us heathen scum wouldn't waste our time or yours trying to do business with you.
Shouldn't the booming business really be in "LGBT not welcome here" signs? It's more in keeping with the spirit of the law *and* doesn't cause an undue financial burden on those businesses that aren't excercising their new-found freedom, right?
what the world needs now is another rendering engine
like I need a hole in my head
--w/apologies to David Lowery
"Borked systems include a variety of machine models from the likes of HP and Dell, which appear to throw up the error code 80004005"
That looks like the code my hacked PSP puts up when I try to play my paid-for Japanese games on my American account.
I just got done migrating from free ESXi to paid-for Server Essentials - I at least get someone to call when the servers go titsup (and they haven't, inshallah, ever since running VMWare Server 2 many moons ago). The next hedge is to investigate some flavor of openstack. Not because I dislike VMWare, but because our next logical step with VMWare costs five figures (Essentials cost us $500), and that buys a lot of time playing around with the competition. I'm licensed to upgrade to 6 but I'm in no rush to do so.
"The cash will come from €60m fund (€20m per year over three years) that supports digital publishing innovation. The fund was set up in 2013 following negotiations between Google and the French government as a remedy to demands from European publishers that Google pay for displaying news snippets in its search results."
So, they're diverting funds from a court-ordered penalty they were already legally obligated to pay, to a feel-good "collector's edition" of a paper that usually sees a miniscule % of that for a full run? Larry&Sergey(&Eric) could pull that much cash out of their couch cushions.
This is not a humanitarian gesture, folks. This is lawyers picking over a fresh corpse.
You mean they aren't just going to post the removal requests on chillingeffects.org? Color me surprised.
That's one of the best headlines I've ever seen out of this fine establishment.
Candybar phone with a physical numberpad that plays MP3s? Why has it taken so long? I really truly want one of these things.
I appreciate that a chromebook will boot and allow at least a guest login without one, but in what sense do you mean "Chromebooks do not require an internet connection."? I am genuinely curious.
"Is thinner than an iPad Air really necessary?"
Yes. The end goal should be something that is the dimensions and foldability of a piece of paper with the computing horsepower to get things done instantly and the networking oomph that everything in the whole world may as well be local. The things we have now are still hopelessly primitive.
No, I'm not joking.
Could you imagine how much publicity Apple would get if Jobs came back *now*?
This wasn't a "click here if you agree" type thing.
At least according to the letter of the law here in the USA, "click here if you agree" is as legally binding as any paper document you sign with a pen. See the E-SIGN act of 2000, signed into law by the same president who would challenge you to define the word "is".
I bought the local access channel's Amiga 4000T when they moved buildings, thinking I would at least play some original Amiga classics (Shadow of the Beast is the only one that actually comes to mind). I never did, and it's still sitting in my basement. I'm sure *somebody* wants it, but I haven't gotten around to finding that someone yet.
"The good news is that despite these notifications of apparent incompletion, you can use the Office apps. I’ve written this whole review on the T100 and have not found myself cursing the keyboard or the device in the process. "
I'm fairly certain the Home and Student version of Office is licensed for non-commercial use only, which would lead me to believe you can use it to write a letter to Grandma but not a paid-for article for publication.
"if it wasn't true you'd never believe it."
The telephone was ringing
That's when I handed it to Liz
She said "This isn't who it would be
If it wasn't who it is"
The camera in the 1020 was what caught my attention. It became a "yeah it's Microsoft but that's a really nice camera" rather than the other way around. With a camera that I could get on any other device I bought, the fact that it's Windows RT weighs heavily against buying it.
Windows Phone/RT might be the best mobile OS out there, but *I personally* need some reassurance I'm getting something out of it. I've dealt with MS products for far too long to give them the benefit of the doubt.
It seems to me that by the second or third day of Soylent I'd be begging for chicken and rice again.
And Zuckerberg's your pimp. It's crass, but it's not incorrect.
"You will soon have a new, exciting choice of cable providers in your neighborhood"
Oh, fuck me.
Gluttons for punishment. Not only will we confiscate $300 for a Surface, we'll rendition you to Florida and force Pitbull down your ear canals!
Running over? Abso-fucking-lutely. "Share the road" means cyclists need to obey traffic laws, too.
Hey, they helped out Nazi Germany, right? The CIA is somewhat less evil than that.
We have that at a few self-check places here, too. "No, fuck off and call the police if you care to" in response to "may I check your receipt please?" at the door is enough to shut that conversation down.
And I thought I had it tough working with an autistic 6 year old. I can only sympathize for you and your 0.4 child.
What, am I required to forward all mail to the NSA myself now?
Significant enough to get paid by apple to advertise new iOS upgrades, maybe. Do you suppose, if Apple pays them $0.10 per flyer, they claw back $0.03 of that in fees?
Phone theft isn't significant enough for them to actually go track down a stolen phone, for example.
It's never the wrong time to hate Apple.
Not out of the box.
Adblock/Adblock Plus and Ghostery are available as extensions. If this works as well in Linux as Windows I may just switch back there, too.
Hold on, no bookmarks? Maybe not, then. We'll see.
Hold on, crappy selection of search engines? Looking more doubtful.
To you, it was the most significant blizzard in your life. To me, it was Tuesday.
Do you have any more info on that? I'd take them up on it.
It works just fine for me in Opera 12.15 for Debian 7.0. And this is my "give google as few permissions as possible" browser!
If it was anybody but google, they'd sell me the glasses and keep the fuck out of my brain (maybe; can't be too sure anymore). Because it's google, they're going to charge me somewhere between $100-$500 for the hardware, tie what I'm looking at to the google+ account I'm obliged to have at work, and then pump ads I don't want straight into my eyeballs. No thanks.
That domain is in use, and totally SFW. I'll leave the contents to someone brave enough to load it up :)
My introduction to The Designer's Republic was the cover of Pop Will Eat Itself's "This Is The Day..." album, so when I saw that they also did some work on Wipeout I had to get it.
If something isn't done about the amount of trolling on teh intertubes I'm going to blow this website sky high!
You make it sound like a King's Quest.
Adam Sandler as Jobs, Seth Rogan as Wozniak. Brilliant!
LoA is the wrong aspect ratio for this TV. Although I would hope if you
're stupid enough have refined enough taste to purchase one of these TVs, you would appreciate the letterboxing on such a title.
Damn you, I had forgotten about that program. I bought an ST just to be able to run it. My favorite sequencer ever, and I'm still pretty upset that my basement studio decided to let in all that water the weekend I was out of town :(
encrypted cage fighting?
Infogrames bought them a number of years ago and took on the name. Nolan Bushnell, on the other hand, has slightly more money than god after starting and selling off both Atari and Chuck E. Cheese. He may not be involved in video games anymore, but he's got a bit more clout than whoever this Pete Foster guy is does.
Hitler only destroyed the lives of six million.
I would pay good money to see Star Wars VII with (current) Carrie Fisher in that metal bikini.
So you're throwing poor Dave under the bus(t), eh?
And have the Beatles record an album to go along with it.
I'd suggest calling it Revolver Ocelot.
