I thought they were known by a different name here.
We need a shiny new thing to buy (or be bought for us). Self-driving AI controlled cars will save the economies of the world.
According to a report in The Independent, there was a confirmation stage and the operator did press 'yes'. What it needs is a big, red, flashing illuminated sign at the other end of the room with a big, red, flashing confirmation button to be pressed. I suppose that would be too expensive.
Why did I read the first sentence as, "Microsoft has bungled ..."?
If you can make it walk like a duck then you might have a chance.
I found out. Human imagination and ingenuity is indeed a wonderous thing, if a bit repetitive and squealy.
"... but appear to have few metal parts and lack even landing wheels."
They don't need landing wheels for a suicide mission. The lack of metal parts was probably an attempt to avoid radar detection.
"Due to its traditional hands-off approach to industry and the fact that the internet mostly resides in private hands, there is little that the DoC or DHS can do in real, solid terms."
If an electricity supplier switched 11kV onto a domestic feeder, resulting in damage and/or injury; would the attitude be the same?
You need to be patient and wait to capture the moment.
You're probably right. I'm wondering why they use copper oxide instead of iron oxide, which is usual for bulk thermite. I assume it makes a better/easier printing 'ink' or sticks to the substrate better, or something.
With more than one interpretation.
Also used in car parks and motorway service staions.
Why don't they use a VPN? They're quite cheap to rent.
I've been using .appimage excecutables for a while now, which are essentially unmanaged (at the user end) self-contained applications with no dependencies on installed libraries, etc. Does anyone know if there are major technical or security differences between snap, flatpak and .appimage applications?
"... have lost confidence in this app to provide the 99.9 per cent reliability as is stipulated in our contract”.
The contract will be allowed to expire in June, when it is next due for renewal, ..."
A contract for a non-compliant service will be allowed to run for another six months?
What about the AU$250,000 p.a. already paid?
a song of loyalty or devotion, as to a nation or college: a national anthem
a musical composition for a choir, usually set to words from the Bible, sung as part of a church service
a religious chant sung antiphonally
a popular rock or pop song
It's not technically an anthem if it doesn't have words. Can any commentareds suggest lyrics?
Can't the 'traditionalists' just add a teaspoon of sugar to it when they open it? I suspect that 'Irn-Bru Classic' will be on sale in the summer.
If you want to have 'real timeshift', you boot from a Gparted Live CD/USB and save/restore entire partitions. It doesn't take long and it's a proper time machine. (I'm old fashioned.)
"... Uber wants to pick a court that is more favorable to its case by asking the district court dismiss the claim and allow it pursue the case in a state court."
How does that even happen?
"Its consensus mechanism relies on extensions in Intel processors, though, limiting it to that architecture."
Can't this be emulated on other processors, or is there a timing issue?
Am I alone in thinking that allowing Intel to slip this into the project may not have been a good idea?
Is it transparent?
I thought Ubuntu was based on Debian Testing and then given some grinding and polishing by Canonical. Given that Testing is only about six months into the usual two year development cycle then Sid might be a close approximation. This is why I wait for the Stable/LTS releases.
"... we're trying to get the firm on the blower ..."
They're already testing it.
I assume it's from an advert for Better Abs.
Have you tried it when your dog is wearing glasses?
Mr Softee pulls away - She makes love to her mobile
(That just caught my eye. It's so close to my own experiences.)
They seem to have packaged two physical drives in one physical unit. Maybe the on-board controller can also treat them both as one physical drive but isn't it more flexible and perhaps cheaper to concentrate on making a single physical hard drive robust and cheap and then use RAID and similar techniques to get performance increases?
If you want to go this route, why not package an extra entire independent set of read/write heads at the opposite corner, then you could really have two channel access to the same physical drive?
Without the (seemingly) standard £30 cancellation charge, I hope :(
There is a difference between them. It's the emf (electro-magenetic fields) that the researchers seem to be worried about.
The universe is complicated!
Does anyone know why Kepler-90a isn't used for the first planet?
I'm sure he did 'say' that. How you spell it in writing depends on which language you use, English or American.
Mr. Mouse is definitely in charge and very much hands-on.
Farmers start applying camouflage patterns to the roofs of the new barns they built in a convenient hollow in their land.
Is there any kind of historical 'misrouting analysis' which gives a list of these types of events and the locations that data was misrouted through? It would be interesting to see the misrouting events organised by country of 'wrongful route'. e.g. How many misroutings went through the USA or UK?
"... the establishment of a base on the Moon ..."
Will the first one be called Moonbase Alpha?
I worked my way through the poorly expressed, spelled and 'grammared' posts to find this gem:
"I think there is a difference between compensating artists for their work, which is obviously a good thing, and allowing them to keep our culture hostage. At a certain point art becomes bigger than the artist."
Oh my, that is weird.
Beaverton: Is it safe to make jokes about the town's name?
("... doing math without a license ..." - wonderful :) )
I thought they were both dead.
The satellite view for my area hasn't been updated for three years. I know this because a car I once borrowed (three years ago) can be seen on the driveway.
I, I love among the creatures of the night .......etc.
"In an effort to make objects more chatty, ..."
"... decorate their knockers this festivus."
Pics, or ..... please?
“I think Viagra must have got into the water supply."
.... and why is he facing charges for it?
According to a TV drama/documentary that I once saw, something very special will happen to Voyager.
These 'corporations' have a legal corporate presence in Europe and operate in Europe. They trade in Europe, engage in corporate activity and make a profit in Europe. I thought that European law would apply to anyone who did that.
VAT is not paid by the company, it is paid by the end customer. The company just acts as a tax collector and forwards the VAT collected to the government.
