This stuff costs a fortune.
Over here in Canada, I was into the Dragon 32s brother the Radio Shack TRS-80 Colour Computer.
Sadly I let all that old stuff go, and am not paying a fortune to buy back pieces of what I once had.
I now have:
COCO 3, with drive controller, no drives. (Looking for them)
PC-2 with thermal printer.
The COCO 3, cost me nearly what they sold for when they were new. :(
Nostalgia is expensive.
Re: In Space, No-one Can Hear You Explode
I want to know what Mach 1000 is in Linguine per fortnight.
Wow. The stupid is strong with this one.
"We have not monitored any attacks," Holden told CNN
Then i promise you that you are monitoring the wrong things. This is a big fat target. I would be surprised it someone had not already breached it.
Had to be BMW
Better range since an BMW never has to waste electricity on running the indicators. :)
Same car made by any other manufacturer, would have 10% less range. :)
You would have to be on drugs to use silkroad now!
I would bet my next paycheque this is a scam of some sort. Either an FBI honeypot, or someone looking to run off with your bit coins.
Re: The unrestrained proliferation of dolphin species
We all know you only have to worry when all the dolphins disappear.
"So long, and thanks for all the fish."
Why didn't you warn us:
The least you could have done is put a NSFW tag on the story, so we wouldn't bring up an image that disgusting on our work computers.
I don't think dong that is even legal. ;)
Azure on my terms.
I will tell you my terms. "Hell no!"
You can quote me on that.
The thought of Microsoft and the cloud together should is enough to strike fear into the hearts of otherwise stout hearted, fearless IT professionals.
Re: Microsoft? Hosting?
I have always said the Microsoft software is just not ready for the datacenter.
My vote still goes to Carly Fiorina
After the way she gutted HP, I would love to see what she could do at Microsoft. ;)
Full disclosure: I am not a Microsoft fan.
Re: Re PETB
Bear is darn tasty.
Many people throughout the world eat bear.
FYI: I hear penguin tastes terrible.
Re: Don't cheer yet
I am praying that they bring in Carly Fiorina. After the job she did at HP, I would love to see what she coul do to Microsoft. :)
I am not a religious person, but if they brought her in I would have to reconsider. :)
Different linuxes for dirrerent purposes
Debian for servers.
Mint for desktops.
CentOS for servers where I need to be compatible with RedHat.
Windows for when I need to play Solitaire.
Posted from my Linux Mint machine.
So they will let you edit Office documents on your phone, but not on your tablet, running the same OS.
Microsoft fails again, and pisses off potential customers.
Low hanging pants are awesome.
I love this "style".
It allows me to detect idiots at a distance. :)
I have a Surface RT pad offered to me through work, for $199. I passed. So did everyone I work with.
Re: Amazing breakthrough
There is no money in cures. Treatments on the other hand are a great source of revenue.
HIV might be the exception, due to the high fear, and the fame one would receive for a cure.
I had a good friend die from AIDS in the early 80's before anyone really knew much about it. So I still hope for a real cure.
Reason I use vi.
I figured sooner or later I would encounter a broken system without my preferred text editor, and EVERY *nix system has vi.
It happened about 3 months after I made the decision to embrace vi. An old Solaris system that I had inherited with the job, decided to fail on a Wednesday afternoon. Payroll was run on Thursday, and of course the payroll system was tied to that Solaris box in a way no one understood anymore. (System was built by the guy who left before the person I replaced.)
Took me a couple of hours to figure out what was going on, correct the issue, and get a working system again. It would have been a much longer process if I had not gotten comfortable with vi.
I was a hero to the payroll people. :)
vi for ubiquitousness.
He added, "Within a decade, we think everyone will choose to subscribe because the benefits are undeniable."
Yeah, the benefits to the vendor are undeniable.
Customer gets screwed.
What I want to know is
Where can I order the golf ball finder?
I have a step father who believes such things, is an avid golfer, and fathers day is coming up soon.
I bought one. Yesterday as a mater of fact.
I really have not had much of a chance to play with it yet, but I am fairly impressed with the speed to cost ratio.
I am however less than impressed with chrome. I think I am going to dual boot it. But I am going to give Chrome a few days to see what I really think.
Phones on the street Vancouver Canada
I am looking to get a new phone soon, so I have been paying attention lately.
This is what I see in an average day.
iPhones Nearly half of the phone I see
Various android phones Probably close to 30% (Increasing rapidly)
Blackberry I would say about 15% and falling.
Non-smart phones 10%
I have never seen a windows phone in the wild.
Full disclosure. I have an iPhone 4, and am probably replacing it with an Android phone.
I love to drive.
I for one can hardly wait for self driving cars to hit the market (No pun intended.)
The reason is that the people who would be first in line to buy self driving cars will be a lot of the people you don't want driving. Partial list below:
My mother. (Slow, and unobservant.)
My sister, (Aggressive.)
My brother, (Drinker.)
In fact when the price gets reasonable, and if I can get a deal on insurance, I might think about getting one myself, for the boring commute to and from work. I wouldn't mind taking a nap in the back seat.
Keep my real car for when i can actually have some fun with it.
I was hunting around for the credit card until I read that it wasn't yellow.
Who wants a Cat product that isn't Cat yellow?
I can't speak (type) to most of your comment, but I would think any device that is designed to survive for years in my pocket would have little difficulty surviving the stress of the launch.
As for the rest, I suppose they will find out pretty soon.
Not so much a tool as a philosophy
If you are going to do it more than three times, script it.
OK, maybe cron.
If you are getting good at bash scripting, and want to use cron to run them at scheduled times for some reason they run fine when you run them manually, but fail when run by cron change the first line in the script to:
The -l argument specifies a login shell. If your usual login sets a lot of environment variables this can quickly sold a multitude of strange problems.
(Very useful for scripting oracle schema exports/imports.
Re: Yes but a house is no good without Windows
My brain is melting while attempting to parse your comment.
I know I am a bad person
But I really, REALLY want to hack the Popes twitter account.
Recovering Catholic here.
Once again they miss the point
It is about the price.
At $35 (Sorry Canadian here.) if I break a Raspberry PI while working with it, I use some profanity, and go order a new one. At $100 I worry about breaking it and don't try to use it to build a heads up display for my car.
This is the same thing that happened with netbooks. the first one came out at a very good price, but every time a new model or competitor came along it was bigger, more powerful, or had new features, and of course the price went up.
I hope this doesn't happen. I hope people are smart enough to stick with the Raspberry PI, because it is the best bang for your buck. Plus the community that has developed around it is fantastic.
I really liked Netflix.
But Microsoft does NOT get money from me. Ever.
It seems to me that 50% of all searches that these vendors will get access to will be something like "disable amazon in ubuntu searches"
Here is my thinking.
One search for "ubuntu install PACKAGENAME" or "ubuntu configure FEATURE"
One search for "disable amazon in ubuntu searches"
No more results.
Annoying, but hardly the end of the world.
no one has pointed out
The biggest problem with this car.
My god is it UGLY!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I love the concept of electric cars. I have built two electric motorcycles and am working on my design for a car.
But I could never drive anything this fugly.
NAMBLA <--- its shit like this that makes me want judgement day to come /sigh
What did the:
Ever do to you?
Re: If you are active for 50 years, that's 20K per year, or roughly 55/day.
That sounds about right.
Not counting weekends when I have more free time.
Re: RE: Over here
If you ever accidentally open smut from a manager. Run, don't walk to HR, and report said manager.
If you can pull it off, act deeply offended.
You might get the manager sacked. :)
Of course I just don't open any email from my manager. It seems the best option.
I just finished rolling out Windows 7 here, if they think i am going throught that hell again with Windows 8 thay have another thing coming, and one more customer going.
It should be televised
and bring back hangings.
Live televised hangings every Friday night. With re-enactments of the crime before the main event.
Simplify, simplify, simplify.
Why not trigger the launch when the balloon breaks.
It seems simple to me. Have a switch as the connection point to the balloon, when the balloon breaks, a spring flips the switch to the on position, and the rocket fires.
Simple toggle switch, with a hole drilled through the toggle.
Connect the balloon to the toggle.
Spring pressing down on toggle.
Tension from balloon holds the switch in the off position.
A new high water mark.
