oh ya, only 10 Billion....
Your "right" to swing a fist ends at the tip on MY nose, anything further is assault, but being a Libtard that you are, you don't understand "other" peoples rights, do you?
in the lab, with air, ok to use mach as a speed, but i feel this is strange to use in space as mach is speed through a substance, ( in our case,air). Just seems funny...
Copper is an excellent bactericide, we used to know this as all door handles in hospitals used to be copper, glad to see they have taken this into the 21st century.
Enough with your fan-nying about!
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...
except trump never wiped an email server during an fbi investigation
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.
When he called it spooky action at a distance, two entangled particles, no matter how far apart, it you change the spin on one, the other will instantly respond the same way. Or has my memory been corrupted by too many beers and curries?
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.
Thanks, you just gave SyFy channel a new crap movie to make!
Meh.. While its chasing you make a quick buttonhook turn to the left, kill shot to the battery pack. Next....
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.
You may want a job where highly explosive lithium/poly batteries are baked out for recycling, but I think the rest of us will pass.....
The suspect was not pushed down the stairs, the poor bstrd tripped and fell...
But Mummy, I want to the bear with all the flies on it's face!
I want the one the evil witch in The Golden Compass had, what a gorgeous piece of engineering that looked to be!
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?
Is a program that disables the li/ion battery protection circuit, turning my lovely purloined phone into a flaming ball of death, hopefully in some miscreants pocket!
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 .
Whaahhh, call me when get to 20 years! :(.........
optional fleshlight appendage arm?
inquiring minds want to know!
Nano lasers for my micro-fische.
Ahhhhaha get it, Micro Fish, oh alright, I'll get my jacket...
if they see any huge bat like creatures in the asteriod, do not, i repeat, DO NOT open the cryochamber of hot looking babe, she can be a problem!
dont forget Mercury, i was living in the not so great state of SC a few years ago.
story in the news of of a poor bloke who fished every day and ate what he caught. unfortunate for him he fished down wind from a coal fired power station, poor guy died from mercury poisioning.
i always they sounded more like a circular saw going through a stack of 2X4's than anything else, the duration lasted about the same too. man they are LOUD!
fuck it, we're going to 5 blades!
Now let the pron industry at it, haptic feedback invisible fingers for all!
as the old cop joke goes..
How many policemen does it take to throw a perp down down the stairs..
NONE! That bastard tripped and fell, i swear to it your honor!
I'm still using LXDE, you can do a workaround to get LXDE on ver 14. How much of a difference is there between LXDE and the current LMDE??
MmmMmm, colonist the "long pork" of Mars...
add a bunch of smaller asteroids to Diemos' mass, hopefully enough to restart tectonic activity, which would then hopefully restart the magnetic field, which would in turn allow a stable atmosphere. the lack of magnetic field is whats allowing the majority of the atmophere to be scoured off by solar winds.
A LOT of presumption here, but at least we don't possiblly kill the population if something goes wrong.
If they loaded a Debian release, a pat on the back may be in order,
However... if any version of Slackware was used, STRING THEM UP!
Dyson invented an entirely New process to seperate dirt from air. How has ANYTHING Apple done remotely compare to this?
easy to hold form factor- check
electrical gubbins to run software-check
All this was done before by Numerous companies before Apple.
All they did was sell a bigger screen device to a pre-installed iphone/itunes base, oh and patent every siily little thing they could through a dubious patent court circuit.
First off, thank you for recognizing my superior intellect, as an AC, you prove you could not follow one iota of my post.
A form factor standardises how a device will look, Apple copied the ipad design off numerous previous efforts from other companies, that in their design infancy saw fit not to patent such silly things as rounded corner rectangles.
Once a form factor is standardized by high uptake from consumers, the industry will naturally be very close to the same form, otherwise every laptop would have different shapes, negating the ability to use off the shelf components.
Now back under your bridge, troll.
in the court room was this... take 2 laptops from different vendors,( same colour), place them at other end of room and see if Apple reps could identify which was which. Guess what jury? it's a frakking form factor, of course they look the same! It's the same with pc towers, refridgerators, stoves and cars, IT'S A FORM FACTOR, now get a grip and start playing nice with each other.
I say grow as many as we can, then chop them down and burn them. Steam power for everyone !
mint linux LXDE was the least painful install i ever did, it just works right out of the Box, looks fantastic and brought an old celeron M 1.5 gig based laptop into the modern age!
The flying wing Batman had in the last movie, it was a cape until an electric charge ran through it, then it stiffened out to glider wings.
a live, small,free,linux distro, ( DSL,Puppy), can now save your job!
It's not chubbier, it's just not as big, if you look at the thickest part of the ipad in the picture, it's thicker than the Tab, but because it's so much longer, it looks thinner. The Ipad tapers off to a thinner edge, which makes it seem way more svelte.
Find a use for the Dyson air Multiplier then?
Ya but that's 3000 tonnes of helium, how much does it really weigh??
