How old is it? Are they comparable specs?
> They are way better than Android tablets at this price point though. A full OS and none of the laggyness.
Hardly worth coming out from under your bridge for 4 measly downvotes was it.
Wow, the US is really behind the times we had that in the 80s and called it something much better "ram raiding". If it really is new try starting a business installing concrete/metal bollards in front of shops so the cars can't get though or build up enough speed, you'll make a fortune.
I'd have thought the exact opposite, much more practical than have bespoke clients installed on every device that I may want to use. If you really need a native app I'm sure there are/will be plenty of browser wrapper apps out there.
Ok, so most of the names you mentioned are involved with WebRTC buts thats just at the standard level, plenty of implementations to choose from.
War and medicine have always been major drivers in technological development. Of course, nowadays you can add porn to that list.
UK != EU
You can write OO code in any language if you are perverted enough.
I've heard of EU and government inefficiencies and requiring things in duplicate/triplicate but surely this is taking things a bit too far?
So thats were I'm going wrong. Could explain why they leave sticky smelly trails after a few days of been snipped off.
Just like moonpig
Looks like standard streaky bacon to me, but unsmoked :-(
Please don't belittle the effort that other national standards committees do, ANSI is one of 150+ national members. A significant amount of the work involved in developing the C, C++ and related standards came from countries from other than the USA.
That requires sending an email. At work I can only access my work email and I won't send a non work related email with that, hence the errors I have noticed in the past remain incorrect.
It always makes me chuckle when schools are on holiday that just a small percentage of less cars on the road means my bus actually runs on time.
And it always makes me frown when I get stuck in a traffic jam when on a bus with 50 people crammed in when the turn off is only 20m away. When all it would take is for a few of the cars in front (with a single driver) to move a little closer to the car in front instead of leaving a gap twice the length of their car as they can't be bothered of moving every time.
RE: Wow, where do you get the authority to deny your office workers USB flash drives?
It's very common. And many more places only allow encrypted drives.
This is running on a server.
> but the above is the principle behind it
I'm not convinced, it should be but not what I believe is their actual intent. Given how difficult it will be to write, never mind the legalities involved and the fact that there are global attempts to do this I can not see how this will achieve anything. I find it hard to believe the government has anything up their sleeve to implement this and think that this is nothing but some pre-election posturing to gain some points with potential voters.
We've now got a smart meter. I miss providing my own meter reading, I used to add a bit extra on just before a price increase.
> Why it let him run 14,000 password guesses, and didn't lock him out completely after less than 10 failed attempts??
Thats probably why the admins were logged out, their accounts had probably been disabled. Of course his IP should have been blocked assuming all attempts were from the same src.
I completely agree. NEVER, upgrade xcode until the project is shipped or you have plenty of slack to waste time getting a project that builds again. I've lost count the number of corrupted files I've left with (no I can't revert from scm as xcode simply corrupts them again next time).
Apart preferring that that big hardcoded would be defined differently, the rest of the code is perfectly readable. Had browse though some of the code and it would appear to be easy to follow and understand.
I've pretty much supported every opinion you've had to date, but this is just crazy. Why just coding, why not get them to do electronics. Maybe they should also be taught biology/chemistry for health related bills etc...
Whatever your opinions on politicians and whichever side of the fence (or just sitting on it) they are on I would rather they concentrated on the job they already have, they usually made a bad job of it as is with the time they put in now. Of course, if some of them actually wanted to I'd support them as long as it did not detract from their job.
Would it be illegal to sell shares and buy them back when the price goes down if you realised the statement was a fake but you knew others would think it true?
Nothing new there, we certianly didn't need an Apple insider to tell us what happens to those who spend their cash there.
> Southerners, can never get the inflections right when trying to do Northern speak.
Aye ye reet they divvent
> Show me somebody excited about 3D printing
Ok, I am. I've worked in a (car) factory, many years ago, I'm also reasonably familair with how many other things are made. Are you suggesting that once someone knows how something is made the urge to make stuff disappears. Maybe all those here who like tinkering away with a soldering iron should stop as fab labs can print straight to silicon?
I can assume that that you have never at to fork out £25+ for a simple bit of molded plastic that your £1000 power tool won't work without? Assuming the part is still stocked that is, even though spare part availablity is a big factor when buying expensive tools there always seems to be a few bespoke parts that are hard to find 10 years down the line.
Anyway, a factory is well out of my price range to make stuff I want, so in the mean time while I'm waiting for 32 printing quality to improve/price to come down I'll continue to persue my hobbies by making things in a time consuming manner or using saved searches on ebay for spare parts as I do now.
The link for Folly is incorrect, you are missing a :/ after https. Firefox sends me to https.com that redirects me to HomeImprovement.com. I know many people look at open source as DIY software so maybve thats right.
> To the motorcyclist who says he'll now drive assuming everyone is out to kill him - that's how I've always driven even in cars
My (car) driving instructor told me the exact same thing on my first lesson almost 40 years ago. Saved my life a few times I'm sure as both a driver and a pedestrian.
I'm really so sorry for this incorrect comment. I should check things when told things, someone (i thought reliable) told me he died a couple of weeks back, I thought it strange I had not heard anything in the press but put that down to me just been too busy recently.
> So... I can go to Waterstones, speak to Terrry Pratchett
Alas, no I'm afraid. Unless the author at Waterstones is a psychic
RE: I'm struggling to see much if any need for Runtime Introspection in a language
A lot of people said the same when it was introduced into java. A trivial but common example for a web page would be annotate a variable with a min/max value, a framework can then example that the validate data entry.
> Do people forget that many city dwellers also have a country residence.....
pretty sure if I had one I would not any phone signal whilst I was there.
Or people would install every single bit of shareware distributed with PC magazines. Of course, nothing sensible permissions would not cure.
Was going to ask which finger they bit until I realised I miss read what you said and they don't bite like humans.
> How can I get any sleep if you keep waking me up to go to meetings!
Thought you were supposed to sleep during meetings not before.
Or in more likelihood, profitable. It's probably more likely someone trying to commit fraud was hacking around than someone trying to do a cool hack.
Thanks for that, never noticed that. Looks like it only came out last month though, about time.
If they made app available on non-amazon android devices they might get a few more customers. I had a "free" subscription to this with Prime but no hardware I could use it with, no longer have prime but may have kept it if I could have used this.
I need this too. However I simply white list works access site, bingo, java does not run for any other site. Maybe your IT department needs to understand how java works in the browser and provide suitable instructions rather than encouraging you to drop security down.
At least the police would know where you went missing.
Maybe I'm getting old and missing the point, but why do people want to watch people playing computer games? I can vaguely understand why someone would want to watch the actual gameplay but watching the player completely stumps me.
Thought they meant it was invite only for the vendor.
Their forecasts for a specific location are very good. For an entire region is impossible unless the whole region by some freak chance has the same weather. An area by the sea could be quite windy with fog, a couple of miles inland. Giving a forecast in the style of the TV forecasts is pretty nonsense really and gives nothing but a guide of what to expect.
Thought that was a bingo site
Seriously though. Ebola has been around for a longer than the current crisis. I don't know how long it has done so but this site is collecting donations for UNICEF.
Interestingly the site appears to be a genuine UNICEF site but the whois entry state a registrant type as an individual.
Judging by the other websites they probably intend to sell a natural remedy for Ebola. I'm sure there are easily enough people willing to buy Ebola targeted snakeoil.
Of course it is, the referendum is over and they voted to stay. We can continue our disregard for them. I'm sure there was someone else involved with our island, can't remember now.
Firefox used to great but over the years it's started to lag behind. Maybe if they concentrated their effort on what made them they could claw back some users.
I guess you are lucky enough to not need to ring 999 very often. Can't really nip outside for a better signal when giving first aid.
> reductio ad absurdam doesn't help your argument and fails in any case. There's nothing wrong with crayon art
Hardly meant to be taken seriously. Plus, there are people don't think Latin is too bad, just as you like crayon art.
>What you're not going to do is write a program that changes the way the world thinks about anything in Pascal. You'll bin it. You will waste idea after idea on a dead language.
I never mentioned any language, if I was desiging a course for kids to learn "proper" langauge based programming Pascal would certainly not be considered
> It's like suggesting that kids should write all their essays in Saxon English rendering them effectively worthless for the future.
So the concepts and ideas the child expressed in Saxon English would not be abe to be transfered to a different language? True, I'm sure there is likely to be some aesthetics lost in translation if it was poetry.
The implementation medium is a way to express your intent, if you can't express your intent in a particular language easily then it is the wrong choice for the problem, this looks perfectly good for 10 year olds sterring a Dalek
