Re: Moon flybys?
Sadly, Hughes owns a patent on the lunar flyby method, so the ESA would probably have to pay some kind of royalty or something.
Ours has had the machines for years, but they don't work. Eg, I've tried my Citi card with it, and it just errors out.
Re: makes sense
I'm sorry. While KVM had a surge of activity, Xen is anything but obsolete.
Re: You forget to add Tax to the US price
Except sales tax here is usually around 8.5%, not 20%.
Re: Sprint's got SIMs?
You were right.. until recently.
Sprint, Verizon, and MetroPCS are all CDMA carriers, but they also have LTE networks. LTE requires the SIM card. So yes, Sprint has SIMs. Sprint's old Nextel iDEN network also used SIMs.
The CDMA2000 spec actually had a "R-UIM", which was basically a SIM, but of course the US CDMA carriers avoided them, because they wanted lockdown.
I have 3 Vzw LTE SIMs sitting right here, actually...
You mean 3rd time around:
WinCE / Windows Mobile
KiN / KiN OS
The US had digital CDMA networks in the 90s.
Roll on Curve25519!
Re: Why the time limits?
They're making sure Amazon recontributes to their reelection campaigns again next time!
Re: So it's not just Dell and HP...
I had a Dell laptop with that problem. Somehow even though my Dell account had my contact info, Dell somehow forgot to notify me about the settlement. I didn't find out about it until I saw it on a website somewhere after the deadline passed. That was my last Dell.
Just use double quotes around the terms. That'll AND them.
I'm a merkin and using IPv6 just fine...
Uhh.. wrong? OS/2 used Ring 2 for drivers, so ended up using 3 of the 4.
And yet there is the libX11 API to abstract the protocol away. Who really cares about how the low level is handled?
Don't be fooled. Shuttleworth is in it for the money only.
PulseAudio is a virus that needs to be eradicated, not a fix.
And why do you need 4Mbps to fill in a form? ISDN BRI could even do that.
Re: Question for all...
Already is. You can lucky disable most of them except for "Presidential Alerts".
On my phone the list is:
"And while it may not be as cheap as Hyper-V (which is free), that makes it considerably cheaper than VMware's ESXi hypervisor and competitive with Red Hat's KVM server slicer."
In what world is free to use cheaper than... free to use? Unless you're trying to claim that MS provides free support for Hyper-V, which I seriously doubt.
But that's the point though. Sprint is still the majority stakeholder in Clearwire. Do you really think they're just going to hand the spectrum over to DISH, a minority shareholder?
While the CDMA backend is basically dying, the radio side of it isn't. EV-DO Rev B is fairly recent, and a lot of the CDMA designs were incorporated into 3G GSM (hence "W-CDMA"). CDMA phones are still crazy popular, and it's going to be years before CDMA is completely shutdown.
The biggest challenge is LTE expects a GSM backend, but eHRPD fixes that, and Verizon, MetroPCS, and yes, even Sprint, have deployed it successfully. Sprint already has a LTE network, after all, and their SprintLink backbone to help backhaul it.
The biggest question is WHY Clearwire. Sure, they own a ton of spectrum that Sprint donated to them. But with Sprint being the majority shareholder, I'm not sure what DISH thinks they'll be able to accomplish.
Re: Nearly made it
But no new versions, just like Tru64. So yes, basically dead.
HP killed the wrong CPU (Alpha instead of Itanium) and also killed the wrong OSs (Tru64 & OpenVMS instead of that horrible HP-UX).
They're dead set on becoming non-existent.
Re: The better solution would have been
Except for those crappy ones that uses special drivers.
Re: mint is really doing things no linux has done before
It's built on the Linux kernel, but it's definitely not the normal GNU user land for the most part. Bionic instead of glibc, busybox instead of coreutils, mksh instead of bash, etc.
I really like Mint, but I'll have to stick with OpenSuSE until the KDE spin comes out. :(
Maybe because those subjects are off-topic? So what, every time somebody has a problem with one thing they're supposed to give a complete list of everything they have a problem with?
Re: Yep, I agree
I would never own a Samsung Android phone because of their FIRMWARE! You thought the software was bad. I think they have the janitors code their firmware after they finish cleaning the loos.
GPS lockups, radio lockups and resets, etc.
If she didn't like their security for not present purchases, why didn't she just go to a store and pick one up in person?
Until VoLTE gets rolled out...
And try recycling the coal after you've made electricity from it!
1) No, of course not, but MOST of them are indeed coal. You should know better too. Wind farms don't produce enough energy, hydro is popular but also doesn't produce enough. Nuclear is great, but unpopular. The majority is either coal or gas.
2) It's called diesel, it's not a fire risk at all. With all of the EPA-mandated filters (DPF, EGR, DEF, etc), it's fairly clean these days. Lithium itself is not entirely safe, I'm not sure how you think otherwise.
If they suddenly figured out cold fusion and got it to market so that we could all have cheap, clean power, then I'd be all over it. Until then, I'm trying to CUT my power bill, not pay out of the nose for power from a nasty coal plant to charge up my $90k car to lug around 556kg of batteries full of toxic chemicals!
Re: Go Android!
"Go Android! ... FUCK Microsoft."
Logic failure there. You do realize Microsoft makes money from almost every Android device sold?
Re: ZOMG Running out of IPv4 addresses!!!!
This argument again?
1) DEC doesn't exist anymore, it's HP now.
2) Getting a few /8's back just delays the enivitable by a few months. That's it. By the time you force HP to remember their entire internal network just to free the /8 up, it would already be too late.
Instead of trying to take things away from people that they legitimately have, maybe you should start IPv6 enabling your network.
...with a husband? huh?
Yes, they did.
I think not. More like shatter-resistant.
Re: My suspicion...
The day I gave up Steam for Origin is the day I'll sign my own commitment papers.
