Pssst... hey pal, come over here .... a little secret to tell ya... most major brand laser drivers are based off the HP laser jet 3 and 4 driver... they all work with this MS built in driver, may not have the functionality if you have a fancy box tho.
True Antic, lubuntu, a fee others, couldn't be bothered with puppy as it was for an adult , none could get WiFi running, its really old, as in the battery is square and sits kinda in the middle , ( still held a charge tho!) of the bottom case.
Believe I left it with lubuntu and a cat 5 .
I just really hate throwing serviceable equipment away.
Anyone with common sense knows once you're pulled for anything, you are suspect for the next few years.
I forgot I had a small screwdriver in my laptop bag going on a domestic flight one time, you would have thought it was sword by their reaction, I just told them toss it in rubbish as not worth the hassle, but every time I flew for next 3 years, I was pulled out if line and patted down" just because"......
I would think this would fall under " expected privacy of use" when joining a mobile provider, the fact the FCC is doing nothing tells you it's a US Gov deployed trap. Try setting up a low wattage FM radio station in your house to broadcast your favourites and see how fast an FCC rep knocks on your door, history has proven pretty darn fast!
The cats out of the bag now, someone created these to law enforcement, and as all technology goes, was available to anyone willing to pay a few years later. Thanks to whoever made this possible :/
One at time are quite noisy, a swarm would be pretty deafening, plenty of time to get the Mossberg 12 gauge ready, a team if two men would take little time to render a swarm into useless bits of plastic, and bonus points for igniting explosive packages far enough away to take out the other drones!
MS mobile interface is still the best for one handed operations, its a shame they never got fully behind it.Im still miffed my models never got the 10 update they were promised, but we all knew with 512 mg if memory, it was going to be a sqeaker if we ever did. Yes IE sucks on it, don't even think of going to /. On it, crashes every time...
Dont know much about these days, but in the early 80's our drivers ed in school did do exactly this, to top it off, i learned to drive in winter, in New England. Our instructor would take us to an icy parking lot, let you get up to 25mph, then slam on the brakes, you didn't pass until you could keep the car straight in a skid. His words still reverberate in my head after all these years, going down a snowy 35 MPH road with 2 bare tracks of asphalt to keep the wheels in.." Track.....Track.....keep Tracking......
Seaquest was nothing more than STNG underwater, I cringe whenever I witness an episode of NExt Gen, all politically correct and bad hair.
Now Space Above and Beyond held so much promise, it was a proto BSG reboot, with gritty storylines, could have been a better story than that Hokey Star Trooper movie..
I call BS in this, modern phones ARE a pc, with keyboard,modem and screen built in, in fact high end phones are being touted as "pc power" in your pocket, yes binary blobs, blah, blah,blah, but it points to where Android is broken.The phone manufacturers need only update the blobs, that get will get attached to the base OS by a software program loaded on your pc during the phone update process, this CAN be done.
Send via my windows phone, which is a small pc, albeit a crap one!
Google just couldnt just provide the base android, then with your phone hooked to a computer after android was updated, it would then prompt you with Hey, you need to upgrade these drivers to work with the new OS, you know, like windows used to be like when you freshly loaded it .
mars is lacking a large enough moon to knead the crust and keep the core from solidifying, Phobos is a lost cause, will probably spiral into the planet in a few million years, Deimos is tiny, before we think of setting up shop there, we need to send out hundreds of small mass drivers to the asteroid belt, nudge quite a few rocks into Deimos' path and hopefully collide and stick, once a large enough mass is built up, let the tidal stresses do their thing. may want to chuck a few bigger ones at Mars to soften it up for good measure.
The lack of a magnetosphere around Mars is the big puzzle piece that needs to be solved before we set up a colony.
for those of old enough to know, it was called an Emergency Brake, for that reason, coming down a windy mountain road, rock flips up and nicks the brake line, single master cylinder, you could gently pull out the Emergency Brake to slow the car, as they had a cable and sometimes their own pads , it was a requirement on driving tests to be able to slow the vehicle to a stop using the E brake...
epson may not lock cartidges, but they can be just as bad with other things, like propiatary waste tank lock up, and they use oodles of ink during calibration, chucked mine afyer umpy cartridges 1/2 emptied during cleaning cycles, went colour laser and never looked back
We had a fax machine come in for repair one time....it was Full of dead roaches, must have been a few hundred! Come to find out, the house it had been in was so infested the exterminator took one look, and turned around ,walked out and wouldn't come back. Needless to say..i gave it to the new guy to soak in a vat of alcohol before the inevitable scrape out.
They hate it because it isn't sexy, cant go supersonic, the pilots want F16/15/22's to fly, its always been this way. Now the Marines could be badass in in an A10, but the limitations imposed on no USAF fixed wing aircraft make this doubtful. The A10 is loved by troops for the protection it affords, but it doesn't fit the USAF's stealthy sexy fast mantra.
I will NEVER buy another Epson product again, after dealing with fiddly print heads for a year, the waste tank was full, no problems I thought, just take and wash out like EVERY other inkjet ever made is capable of. Oh no, not with Epson, you have to BUY a code to reset the counter, Buy a code for what,to tell the machine something as simple as a waste tank being cleaned/replaced ? I mean really, WTF Epson. Long story short, found a bootleg engineer program that would do it for free, but this has soured me so much on Epson, they are persona non grata in anyplace I live or work now.
Most mfp based machines are using 1gz and up processors these days, yes they usually run a Linux variant because its free or cheap, and use most of it for image processing. It takes a fair amount of grunt to render full colour prints fast, never mind network scanning.our mid range machines run a 1.2 gz chip, 2 gb of ram and have a dual 160 gb hdd array in raid 0, this has been a standard on 50 ppm mfp's for 5 years now.
It used to be the dash lights would only come on when you turned on the headlamps, this was a nice reminder your headlamps were off if you could not see the speedo! Now with daytime lamps, the dash lights are always on, making people sometimes think their headlamps are on.
i thought the whole point of 4.4 was unification of past models , 4.4 is supposed to run on devices with only 512 Mg of ram, this will bring a lot of older sets up to date if, that's a big if, the carrier releases it.
I have a cheap Chinese tablet running JB, would love to upgrade to 4.4, but Rockchip chips while popular, have little support.
I also take the point of view that is just a friggen OS if my device meets the minimum specs ,why is it such a pain to upgrade, if the video,wifi,audio were supported in the previous version OS, why not now?
The Russians perfected what was then call Radial Keratotomy after a school kid wearing glasses was punched in the face, sending shards into eyes. After patching the kids eyes up,(and a bit of healing), the kid noticed his nearsightedness was almost gone.
Within 3 years they perfected it to the point of those 6 bay radial surgeries, the doctor was a bit a bit of rock star , considered "The Guy" to have this done by.
Now we into PRK and radar mapped PRK, amazing what 30 years can do for a procedure. The best quote I've ever heard regarding this type of surgery,(and it is surgery!) is "I would never have my eyes worked on for $400 each, I would however, consider it at $800 each".
You get what you pay for, as much as I need it done now( -7 index, plus now I need reading glasses on top of my contacts, ultimate irony), the idea of these clinics gives me the heebie jeebies .
