Or, to make it more plain to the US populace, there is no constitutional right to sell guns.
What Pointy Haired Moron thinks that deployments over time are a good metric of performance ? The unskilled kind that cannot manage a team without numbers to decide things for him.
Gene Kranz himself said in an interview that the large heavy lift rocket was the wrong approach. Its so expensive that they'll only every be able to afford one a year .
A better solution would have been a cheaper smaller rocker and assembling missions in orbit. That give you multiple launches, in space time for crew and experience at on orbit assembly. All stuff which is valuable skill and can be transferred to the inevitable change of program when a new administration comes in.
If they dont get to Mars quickly the SpaceX giftshop will run out of postcards.
You see this kind of article every ten years and it always boils down to "in the future you technology X will save you from having to spend that money on expensive developers." It NEVER happens.
Remember in the mid 90's when visual programming languages would mean you could write software without the need to code ?
Remember being told that all those cheap offshore developers were going to take your jobs and there would be almost no domestic developer jobs in the 2010-2020 timeline ?
The real issue here wasnt the economy, wasnt security or the future. it was "oo, there's a lot of folk around lately with strange accents."
Brexit will be a British Independence Day.
A big explosion that causes a lot of damage and pain followed by fight and a long recovery until somebody does it all again 20 years later.
I saw the "Prelude to Axanar" video on youtube last year and thought it was awesome, and I was so looking forward to the final version.
Several other fan produced not-for-profit productions have been made and paramount seems to be OK with them so long as nobody profits from it. I dont really know why Axanar is different. However having seen the the other productions I suspect Axanar is actually being sued for being too good.
IDK why Paramount didnt just buy them out .
Docker's open source, doesnt that make it's container format an open format ?
Or is somebody confusing the words 'open' and 'interopable' ?
This is awesome, a genuinely good news story just before Christmas. I've been waiting all year to see SpaceX pull this one of and I'm so happy they did.
I'm not worthy!
which always translates into
"no-changes-on-a-friday-unless-somebody does their 'baby wants is rattle' impression and cries loud enough and then you'll have to fix it I dont care how long it it takes and yes the person who asked for the changes does get to go home on time but you dont."
"The Hobbit with new graphics to take advantage of the Spectrum 128's enhanced capabilities."
The 128 (or +2 , +3) had no extra or indeed changed graphics. The enhancements were audio, and memory capacity.
This game looked really good when I saw it on a tv advert the other night and I did consider buying it. Then I saw the dreaded words "Exclusively on PS4"
Platform exclusives - how to stop people buying your product.
Seriously people, stop thinking biometrics are secure.
I've seen fingerprint authentication fooled for the cost of a camera and an inkject printer.
Er, according to most payment providers I've seen they're not allowed to store that.
This would total unbalance kerbal space program and must be banned.
Prove it - stop putting out versions that stop working with Selenium.
Real developers have have integration tests you know.
It's the wrong kind of rocket - with their budget they'll be lucky to launch two a year and it'll take ages to do anything.
It would be much better to have more smaller rockets and a reusable crew capsule. Assembling things on orbit in multiple launches would give more flight time for Astronauts and experience in orbital assembly.
How are you going to learn about orbital assembly and evolve new techniques if you just package everything up onto one rocket ?
"if we blocked everything that put people out of work"
Nope, we don't do that in this country - ever.
See Margaret Thatcher and the Closure of the Mining Industry.
I was originally hoping to upgrade to an S5 (from an S3) but when I looked I didn't find the features that enticing.
Fingerprint Sensor - Useless and cracked within a week of launch.
Waterproof - I seriously doubt that halfway through a two year contract those covers over the ports will still be tight and waterproof.
I went for a Note 3, the large screen nicely sits in my heat slab hands.
If you don't allow ISP's to throttle certain *cough*netflix*cough* services they there is no way to entice customers to use anybody's VPN service to bypass their throttling.
Seriously if you get the connection you pay for why would you want to pay another party so you can actually use it?
Seen this far to many times in Education, applications that "relied" on IE when in actual fact they relied on an ActiveX control. At least it was a step up from those "application" that were really just Access forms wrapped around some kind of Access runtime .
It has been done.
The one thing this show didnt mention was the long term effect on the end users and the population at large.
I think the biggest achievement to come out of the British home computer boom of the 80's is the number of developers this country currently has. I can think of entire development teams that wouldn't exists if you wiped the ZX Spectrum out of history.
It might help 'mobile markets' performance if their mobile app didnt slow the phone down some much and require so many privileges.
Including my new laptop, which is going back to 7.
"The internet interprets censorship as damage and routes around the problem."
Bought a new laptop recently and it came with 8 installed on it. A very quick instlall to 8.1 yet still it's rubbish.
All those shortcuts like Alt+F4 no longer work, I actually paid £££ for a 3rd party app to get a proper start menu, and it looks and feels just slightly worse that windows 7.
It's on borrowed time - one big screwup and it goes straight to linux.
I just threw up a little in my mouth.
As in hunting for storage, and finding that you can't actually add a microSD to an apple device.
I'm betting that you'll see Hurt's War Doctor regenerate into the ninth (Eccleston) at the end of the special. He can be seen right at the start of Rose checking his reflection as if he's just regenerated.
..then you have to accept their faults along with their talents.
Dr Who is the same. Its never perfect, but we love it.
(Same with Star Trek , for each 'City on the edge of forever' you get a couple of 'Spock's brain's);
To clarify this , in the UK TV programs go into public domain on January 1st following the 50th year since first broadcast.
This means that the first Dalek serial episodes 1 and 2 falls into public domain but the rest of it wont for another year.
It's only illegal for another 6 1/2 weeks. On jan 1st 2014 this episode (and early Dalek ones too!) fall into the public domain.
Never understood that.
Yeah, he can't go back to New York without blowing up the planet. So why not nip back to , say , Boston, a couple of days before they arrive and send them a telegram. A telegram that states something like "TARDIS IN BOSTON STOP GET THERE NOW STOP" .
Configured a netware print server to add a header page with the printing user on it, then weeks later add an "auto-print on inbox rule" before signing the user up to wife-swapping mailing list.
Do you really think we'll get anywhere near a reasonable debate in this country?
The day we get anywhere near that some terrorist activity will occur and news media will spend days days pandering to it demanding that more be done to stop them. I didn't think it a coincidence that that army drummer died just after the communications bill was shelved.
You can always find solace in the arms of SpotFlux.
You can't sacrifice utility and ease-of-use on the holy altar of efficiency.
Other than another radio spectrum auction, exactly what does scrapping FM radio get us?
No, this guys is right on the money. We shouldn't teach people to code.
(Go with me on this guys, restriction of supply leads to increased demand . Less programmers higher wages)
Clearly they used mechjeb. Cheats!
I think we need to help those suffering from Technical Ability Disorder (TAD).
TAD sufferers can be the fairly mild type, who need to call help when the printer jams or routinely double click everything. But there are so many serious sufferer's, the one who can't use series links on satellite boxes, or send every email in capslock with no full-stops. These are the full Untechincals. As the world moves on they must either have constant help or retreat to Amish like homes where technology rises no higher than the electric oven.
With the 50th anniversary coming up the first epsiodes will be coming into the public domain.
I waited to long to buy it and it's sold out.
Meanwhile, in a parallel universe, the android powered Lumia 940 is taking market share away from the Samsung Galaxy.
It works just like a tablet but you have this pair of external input devices , one with a lot of buttons for typing and another analog input device you move around a flat surface.
Specially designed for people to use while at a desk.
I'd rather he had stayed for twenty years.
Given their track record I do not want to see Microsoft rising to dominance in ANY tech sector ever again. People accuse Google of doing evil but compared to 1990's Microsoft they're saints.
I'm totally against 3D films and whenever I take the wife to a film we always pick the 2D version .
I've seen about 6 films in 3D, largely because we used to live in a small town with only a 2 screen cinema and if you didnt grab some films in 3D then you had to wait and risk not seeing it until you got it on DVD.
Then we saw Dredd and , frankly it worked. The 3D actually added to the film, due to what they were trying to show. But even that was 3D or nothing, we couldnt find a 2D showing that weekend.
