These boys are quite unknown in the Low Countries.
The EU has been subject to two advisory national referenda in the Nehterlands. Twice did the majority vote against the EU. Twice did the government listen to the people and decide against them. Because of the resulting discontent, the government has abolished further referenda on the grounds that what the people want is undemocratic.
Could we ask HPE to Open Source their AXP architecture?
An Instruction Set Arrchitecture is repaltively simple. It is de tailed design of processors like R10000 that is muh more omplex, so the argument that it has been proven in practice makes sense. So you're allowed to make your own 'implementattion' of their ISA. But then, their hardware design is protected by numerous patents....
Guess if you own a fab, you could just buy SGI.
Regheads will assume that I mean the Peripheral Component interconnect from Intel, when it could also be the Partita Communista Italiano.
I would say that the world seems to be going to hell, just like it usually does. Whose advice would you rather follow, Jesus Christ, the Dalai Lama, Bill & Melinda Gates, Marx or May?
Half of all the good guys and the bad guys are now online, just like we hoped hey would. That the Internet is a den of thieves, fake news, peddlers of religion and viagra should come as no suprise. Most of the threat to tthe net comes from politicians and do-gooders who would clean the webs.
The Rovyal Navy sank the mighty German U-boot fleet and the Spanish Armada. Apparently they also conquered ME and MacIntosh.

" the governments also controlled the religion"
Actually, no. Many rulers of yore have controlled religions to increase their power, sometimes claiming divinity for themselves.
"There is only one religion that can be interpreted as calling for the takeover of all the Earth by whatever means necessary. "
Yes, that is the God of Moses, Abraham, Jesus & Mohammed. Popes were the only religious leaders to control governments, instead of the other way around.
"What about the people who live in Sussex? or Essex or any of the US States that have a Sussex County or Middlesex County or Essex County?"
What about Sexbierum in Friesland?
Google's motto used to be "do no evil"; is "make money, not love'"an improvement?
Once upon a time on the far shore of the ocean, there was PC-DOS and it was hand-crufted in glorious assembly language. Then came Win16, which supported C and Pascal, Followed by Win32 and Win64, which mostly supported C. Like Prince Charles, Windows .NET and C# are the designated successor in waiting (or was that Midori?), and now in the name of ESR, Redmond wants you to switch to C++ anda new OS API. (where is the documentation for the NT kernel?)
phopshine sounds like the name of a photoshop plug-in that makes your pictures shine.
We understand that the earth's atmosphere used to be reducing in the olden days, before photosyntheseis liberated lots of molecular oxygen (O2) that would readily react with any phosphine (PH3) our there to produce phosphates (H3PO4).
