I'd actually rather recommend the books. The T.V.-series - while good - pales in comparison.
Suitable alternatives are already available. One such alternative is ammonia. Ammonia can be used as an easy and safe fuel by using a catalyst that splits up the ammonia into water and hydrogen (which can then be burned).
What makes ammonia such a good alternative you might say? There are a few reasons.
1. It can be easily manufactured, it only takes water and energy to create it.
2. Emissions from an ammonia car are only water vapor and nitrogen.
3. Energy density is good (half that of gasoline).
4. Conversion kits are available for about $1000
5. Cars can be easily made dual-fuel, so one could still burn gasoline when in necessary
Ammonia cars don't produce dangerous emissions (you could run it in your living room without any problems), they have good mileage given the high energy density, allow fast refueling and still allow you to take the car to places where you don't have ammonia available - so it doesn't limit you in any way. It's cheap to convert a car - so it's viable to people besides Elon Musk.
In addition, if ammonia cars are taken up, we could use the fuel manufacturing for buffering renewable energy. Say the wind is blowing very hard or the sun is shining brightly we could up the manufacture to absorb this energy instead of offloading it for sometimes negative amounts.
I have been using a Sailfish device. The hardware is vastly underpowered, but the phone is actually quite responsive. I have been quite impressed with it. Only thing you notice is when you run an app using the Android Compatibility (because there is no native app available) is that those Android apps are horribly slow.
Well, obviously a framework of some sorts will need to be made in which a suite of applications can be created that creates an interoperable, secure system which forms the basis of national security.
That sounds like p2p, which is not what Skype is nowadays. Of course it's centralized and spy-friendly.
Now sporting free interplanetary delivery. Place your orders now!
Just drive to the end of the world, take a picture of the great abyss at the end. All the proof you need that the eart is indeed flat as a penny.
This seems like a no-brainer. There is a functioning satellite available to be used. In terms of bang-for-buck, it doesn't get much better than that.
* It's a sex toy

Working as expected!
Looks like roles are getting reversed. Before Modi this would have likely never happened. Corruption and lobbying in India would have prevented this.
Likewise, before Trump, the US seemed to be going a sensible way, with net neutrality being a requirement for every ISP.
Don't they usually have a capacitor bank for this? This energy is then fed back into the battery (or the motor).
Interestingly, this is exactly what the article describes. Sometimes customers can be stupid as well as foolhardy.
You can afford to move to a place with a more agreeable climate.
Where did you get the funny idea about the transaction costs? You are expected to pay a small percentage in transaction fees to ensure the transaction goes through smoothly. It will only ever be so high if you are doing a very big transaction. You can decide the transaction fee yourself and the average seems to be about 0.01 % nowadays.
To reach a fee of $ 40 with that fee percentage you would have to gift your wife something of $ 400,000. Talk about generous!
There is a very good episode of Last Week Tonight about civil forfeiture: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3kEpZWGgJks
Shows nice examples of everything being wrong with this system. It's just not that the whole idea is bonkers and that you have to go to court to get your stuff back, the court dealing with this is sometimes run by the same people taking your stuff.
where we not only screw the customer, but ourselves as well.
Would you like some lube for your shafting? You'll have to buy it yourselves.
I also have a Samsung "smart" TV. I bought it around 5 years ago, right around the time that the "smart" part was becoming the default. If there had been a cheaper TV with the same picture quality without the "smart" thing I would have bought that, but nowadays they tend to be cheaper.
Never plugged the network cable in, so I don't get any pushy "update" messages. As such, the TV does what it's supposed to do. Only minor annoyance is the fact that it takes quite long to start up, you can see the samsung logo on it (so the screen is ready) but it is probably trying to phone home - failing every time - and waiting for some response from their puppet masters.
Not making any calls during the extended period of downtime?
Wouldn't that financially ruin any telecom-company?
I have gone mostly google-free. I switched from gmail to my own hosted email, threw away my Android phone for Sailfish and I use Duckduckgo for searching.
Life is good without the Google.
for the smart sandwich.
This smart sandwich will be made from materials that can recognize when they enter an acidic environment (say something like hydrochloric acid) and then break itself down.
This way it could be absorbed through a semi-permeable membrane. Wouldn't that be brilliant?
But LineageOS has an option in the developer menu to kill an app by a long press on the back button.
I think that when it comes to patching servers Debian has the best strategy. They backport security fixes so that holes get closed without affecting any of the functionality of the software in question.
This provides the smallest chance for problems. Because of this, I know companies who have auto-update enabled for their production servers running Debian.
don't allow Samsung to use this new technique. I don't want a camera that can sting me before exploding in my face.
Those weatherman should never get away with it!
It's mostly an insurance thing. It's cheaper to launch a used rocket, some of these savings make it to the customer, which saves them money. They will likely need to pay some extra premium to their insurance.
If the savings are greater than the additional insurance premium it becomes financially interesting to use a second-hand rocket. It's likely that as reusable rockets become more common the premium goes down and the savings go up, tipping the balance more and more towards reused rockets.
The fridge is just for testing purposes. We keep Bruce around for when the real deal comes along.
is to simply stop going to America. This is the option I have chosen. It does suck because I always enjoyed going to cppcon, which is now no longer an option.
We cannot land on Europa. It is forbidden.
Also, the UK gets plenty of sunshine, you just need a decent vantage point.
It's not nearly massive enough. For the lightest star, about 13 times the mass of Jupiter is required, which would yield a brown dwarf. This exoplanet only has 2.8 Jupiter masses.
You can no longer bring any electronic device with you on a flight to/from 'Murica. The fact that it is outside of your control for quite an extended period of time means anything could have happened to it. It is, essentially, no longer your device.
Firmware updates, hardware keyloggers, anything is possible. They already require your bags to be 'locked' in a way that they can be opened by anyone with a master key (the TSA and anyone with a 3D-printer). They can thus do anything to your device without detection.
The end pricing is justified because there is a market for it. What if that component is part of a critical, multi-million-dollar piece of equipment. Suddenly you need to consider the additional cost of all that testing vs the additional cost the insurance wants if you don't use it.
The more expensive component turns out to be cheaper in most cases.
Or just install debian following these instructions:
Already installed? Simply follow these instructions:
This works fine on a few debian jessie vpses I run.
But I would return it now if I had one. If I buy a product it is mine to do with as I see fit (law permitting of course). This kind of shenanigans is what you would expect from a Google or a Microsoft.
I guess using customer data as a product is now considered "normal" to enough people for companies to get away with stuff like this.
If you're a pregnant woman, live-streaming the abortion of your unborn child they might as well abort her too. Why would anyone want a camera present for something like that?
If the banks made a proper API, nobody would be using screen-scraping anymore. There is no point to banning the use of scraping. They want to ban it and _not_ provide an API.
This was - of course - inevitable and it only shows how effective the NSA is at undermining everyones security.
It's fairly trivial to switch back to good ole sysvinit. There is even a wiki page about it.
Let's not feed this crap to our children. I can understand why companies like Google and Microsoft want to catch them early, but why don't we start them off with something sensible instead like a proper OS free from all the spying and pre-installed junk.
I propose a new name for these types of devices. Insecurely Designed Internet Of Things, or IDIOT for short, because that's what you have to be to buy one of these devices.
Why we should all be using dnssec.
Microsoft implements the wire protocol to lure people onto Azure. Then they introduce some additional "features" and non-standards behavior so people using it are stuck on Azure.
Let's all stay away from this.
With these new helicopers a new job title is created, the Tactical Data Officer. It is the TDO's job to stay on the radio and relay all vital information through the encrypted radio link.
This will create many many jobs, as promised.
Considering the things we nowadays do in our browser (banking, taxes, etc...), would you really want to use a browser that refuses to let you take a look under the hood?
do sql injection vulnerabilities still keep happening?
Prepared statements have been around since forever and they make it impossible for this to happen.
Then again, it's WordPress, they are famous for always inventing new attack vectors.
I thought the update breaking DHCP was brilliant. It really improved the safety of the machines as they cannot download viruses and trojans without a working internet connection.
Why they would let these machines loose on the world wide web is beyond me.
