Great. I've been waiting for a remake of the Robocock series for years.
Bear in mind that a niche product is not the same as a niche industry. As an example: I'm currently designing a USB controller for an azimuth thruster. A niche of a niche and there's probably a few hundred people in the world who'd be interested in such a thing which is nowhere near going to pay the tooling costs for injection molding. On the other hand it probably enough to pay a competent person to design the thing using a combination off the shelf parts and domain specific 3D-printed parts while still selling it at a non-silly price. Now multiply by N where N is an unknown but likely substantial number. At the field is populated by tinkerers like me but I smell a business opportunity.
They have a whole forum dedicated to just that.
Dammit. Beat me to the Flesh Gordon reference. Have an upvote.
That there's a market opening for an all live action* remake of Flesh Gordon.
*I mean no crappy cgi, of course.
Can I put one in the other? It would still make more sense than US gun policy.
would show dangerous signs of intelligence.
I give up. There is nothing I can say about this
so the slow reader can see something in the corner. Now, multiply that by 100.
you can just make out the dashcam for recording wacky orbital near misses.
to work on my manuscript of 'Tintin and the Lesbian Separatist Collective Mystery'. Tens if not hundreds of sales await.
On second thoughts I'll let someone else do it. I'd rather have the plonk.
"Which country are you in where you can purchase penicillin over the counter?"
I didn't realise I needed to wear a dirty mac and talk in code just to get an antibiotic prescription filled. More seriously, I have seen people furious at the pharmacist for doing what what's called in Australia "brand substitution". Even suggesting that they might want to save a significant amount of money can be taken as a mortal insult.
it also coincides with the introduction of the potato thus proving that the Irish are the true philosophers and that you should eat more chips.
I was going to point out that the Bragg cluster is in fact named after Lawrence and William Bragg but I won't because it would involve making a terrible pun.
It was on the cards.
I didn't say the problem was rejection.Most such surgery goes well as the work of Fred Hollows* showed. But there's a small but significant proportion of cases which don't go well and there mostly the result of the eye not adapting well to something it didn't evolve to contain.
*I'm not sure how well Hollows is known outside of Australia, but if you haven't heard of him look him up. Edit:I see you have heard of him.
Ignoring more general implications of actually having created a working organ from stemcells (that can't be significant can it?) cataract surgery is a pretty simple procedure done under local anesthesia. The difficult part is managing the consequences of having a foreign body implanted in the eye. That's doable in a country with decent health care, not so much in the third world. So yes this does solve a real problem.
Well we could discuss it, but maybe we should stick to something more tractable like the existence of god.
that following in the footsteps of the great tech pioneers it's made from paper. Can't figure out the rest of the acronym though.
Dougal rhymes with Google. Shouldn't be too difficult to work in a Father Ted joke there, or for extra points, try the Magic Roundabout.
Let's face it it's always spam.
and keep the PLA busy watching the accelerometer data trying to work out if I'm watching porn. When the Chinese regime falls you'll have me to thank.
Of course there will be cameras in the nose - computers don't have eyes.
Taking a 500m curve at mach 5 may be Superman's idea of a fun ride but it ain't mine
But as the article indicates he's put his misbegotten youth behind him and is a Queenslander now. What next - blaming Queensland for Fosters!
but I'm beginning to think that 'Zero' stands for the number in stock at any reliable outlet.
The Pi has a special feature to deal with that - it doesn't run Flash.
Edit: Seems I can't add an icon after posting so please imagine the joke alert.
His share of his his father's business when he took it over was around $100 m give or take a factor of two. He's now worth 4.5 billion according to Forbes but a figure as low as 2 billion is plausible. Which means, if I crunched the numbers correctly, he could just as well invested the money and spent his life on the golf course. (Does Trump place golf - it's probably a bit too genteel for his image.) Or he could have just let his underlings run the company and take all the credit. (What was I saying about his image?)
The guy knows exactly what he is doing. He'll say whatever he thinks will play in order to get what he wants (and he's very good at that) but like a dog chasing a car. . .
Just use cash.
I want desperately to hang onto the belief that all those orgasms are real.
but I wouldn't be terribly frightened of a killer robot shooting at me with all the power of a dim lightbulb.
I was searching for 'porn' in Office.
Doesn't Trump present himself not just as a prominent businessman but as a business leader. Didn't he have a TV show in which he purported to teach people how business is done. Trump is already a part of the problem and will continue even if he doesn't become POTUS.
Or at least it was in Charles Stoss' Acellerando. I forget the precise details but it involved dropping part of the sail and using the reflected the light for deceleration. Of course if you're just going to Mars you'd probably want to send the reflector ahead and you'd still have to solve the problem of making the system work at a distance of more than a few hundred km.
A few years ago I would have said the same but climbing to the top of the radio tower in the last Tomb raider scared the shite out of me.
That rats eat the seeds and/or seedlings of the native trees has been known for some time. Nature can be surprising sometimes.
I spent a non-negligible amount of time try to work out why you'd want SSL on an internal bus. Maybe it's time to move to FLA (four letter acronyms).
I'm sure it will be more stable when the missile launch tubes are installed.
Don't worry you aren't missing much - you have to be ridiculously high for it to be remotely convincing and it doesn't come with the phone number of your local drug dealer. But I second your motion for a Google flight sim - even the rather dodgy Google 3D buildings put the Microsoft autogen scenery to shame.
In the future I'll stick to the astrophysics articles.
I think I saw that in a video once.
That sphere doesn't look especially spherical. Are the gravity waves particular intense at the Vulture South eyrie.
1. The energy doesn't run out it just gets spread progressively thinner (at least for light in a vacuum and gravity waves that's were your model falls short).
2. The same analogy applies to light and yet we manage to see distant galaxies.
3. It helps to have a very energetic source and a very sensitive detector.
For really high temperatures you need a jam-based pastry.
