These rules are becoming so convoluted and interlaced that soon you won't be able to do anything at all online.
It makes a refreshing change to come across people whao actually have a clue about statistics.
P.S. and not a single "It stands to reason" anywhere in the article :)
@ Ted Treen
Have one of these as well as an upvote :)
Something Must Be Done (tm). Crims not inconvenienced in the least bit, everyone else shat upon. Not forgetting that the two most serious gun events in this country occurred after the Cops had repeated warnings about the perps.
P.S. I'm not a gun owner, and never likely to be, but ones I know are extremely responsible and have my full support on this.
And they want to put men on Mars - best make the space domes movable!
I can't quite work out who I have least sympathy for
It's not a 'knockoff' of anything. Linus used Minix as a platform to build with. There is not, and never was, any Minix code in Linux - as was confirmed by the writer of Minix. Maybe you think Linus should have entered the code on bare metal with banks of switches.
Well I'm sure peeps have their own interpretation of his actions, but all the instances I've read about where Linus loses his rag, occur after a fairly long and painful process of him trying to get people to realise they have made a mistake, and perhaps they'd like to fix it - soon.
I wonder what Visa and Mastercard think of this.
The fear is strong in this one
A control freak's fear of losing that control.
More like Fifi
Hey, go easy on the old girl

Seems to start well, but does he have the stamina?

Nope, makes no sense however you put it... but the last is the closest!
Doesn't he look old
P.S. ... and that from someone more than 0x40
What is this "Windows Server" you speak of?
... the one with "Linux From Scratch" in the pocket.
Nobody knows whether it goes thi' sway or tha' sway or 't-other sway.
... not even the people from Swale
So when is it BTs turn?
On the contrary
With all the court papers Apple have filed, I would think they've made a major contibution to the industry worldwide!
A personal experience
I'm 5ft 11, and until a couple of months ago was 14.5 stone. I was getting plenty of exercise, but was eating too many doughnuts (brought in for all of us by a well meaning secretary). Just cutting those out and making no other changes has brought my weight down to 13.5 stone, which is what I used to weight about 30 years ago. The only downside is that I'm going have to buy new, slimmer, trousers.
According to the BMI stuff, that still leaves me about a stone 'overweight'. I disagree.
I did my bit
I bought one real computer this year
As only a moderately capable Linuxian, when things started breaking for no apparent reason, it was quicker and easer to go back than try and work out why apparently unrelated things were no longer working. More recently when I tried to uninstall the wretched thing on a different machine there was a laundry list of programs that would also be removed :(
As an 'ordinary' user, systemD creeping into debian (virtually unannounced) has caused me major problems when trying to keep machines up-to-date and secure, such that on two of them I've had to go back and do a complete re-install of squeeze. I don't really want to move to another distro - it's a whole new learing curve - but I'm teetering on the brink.
Re: remember for a lot of people
Oi! Us South-Easters don't want to be associated with that London mob. Sooner they build a wall round the M25 the better!
He's leaving. So?
Will anyone notice?
The real issue.
They don't want you to have a permanent copy at all. Even CDs have a finite life, but if you can make multiple private copies, purely as backup, then that, to them, is a lost sale. Even worse if you originally got a 'soft' copy.
What more can you say, when you already have utter contempt for these greedy bastards?
Something not entirely clear
If you got your tax + disk near the end of September, do you still need to display it?
There is no hope!
The man hasn't got a clue.
Re: Stunningly obvious 'discovery' - H2 verses H2O
Downvoting my downvote comment too. Clearly I'm rattling some cages.
Good ... any advance on 3? :)
Re: Panic! - you're bunch of arm chair chemists
Downvotes? Can it be we actually have two DM readers here?
We are literally awash with an alien substance. Tell the Daily Mail.
Re: For the full authentic experience...
... and it should have a horrible metalic key??? (not going to call it a keyboard)
So how much are they after this time?
The only good thing about this is that it just might stop some innocent driver being traumatised when he runs down one of the brain-dead saps.
A thought experiment
Let's suppose the media maffia get their way here.
Let's also suppose that nobody finds an alternative way to distribute files.
What will they do when they find their business is still going down the tubes?
Re: Minor note
I think that when you've untangled all the 'creative' accounting and tax evasion it's closer to 90% profit.
Did something important happen on Friday?
Yes, actually. I was able to sign off a three week project.
Load of codswallop.
If you wander off to the SOS website, and dig around a bit, you'll find an excellent article on digital audio, that goes into the science in great detail.
Short version -
16bit is a greater dynamic range than your ears can stand (taking into account room background).
44.1kHz will definitely resolve up to 22kHz perfectly accurately.
So, to just play your music, a well mastered and recorded CD is all you need. Higher bit depth and sample rates are only needed if you're intending to go into music production.
So, onward and (hopefully) upward then.
Contrary to what 'Just call me Dave' claims, we haven't exited the last recession. If anything we're barely marking time.
The IPO also gives them more credibility, which will benefit them when selling goods ouside Asia, and in itself will increase the stock value.
Tinfoil Hat time?
Is it my imagination or is the Internet in general getting steadily more flakey?
Not really taking sides here, but all the washing machine doors I've seen could take a considerable amount of force.
Someone call? Oh, Apple sold out 1st day.
Re: Hurrah for the rule of law, we say.
Shouldn't that be 'underware of' ?
Re: Now now...
... and how many were even archaeologists?
Been following XKCD for yonks, and 'What If' since it started., Always interesting, fun and zany.
I've just had a thought
... it desn't happen too often these days.
Has the gender or LOHAN been establised?
The reason I ask is that if male, then PANTS are undergarments and maybe a wee bit rude for ths Fine Family Friendly Forum (hmmm, 16 bit) whereas if female then the undergarments would be panties and we'd be OK.
This seems to be a most important issue that should probably elicit a substansive response.
