Re: Apple fix it or people will move
@NogginTheNog you'd think that, but when I dual boot into Windows 8.1 Pro with my i7-8700k I get the message that my CPU is too new for my Windows version and that I either need to use an older CPU or buy Windows 10.
An error message that minimises all other windows btw., on an OS that I only installed because I wanted to play games that don't yet work in wine.
2 + 2 = 4, er, 4.1, no, 4.3... Nvidia's Titan V GPUs spit out 'wrong answers' in scientific simulations
Re: What about Oxygen?
All of those are good replies... I was just a bit concerned, because rockets do use a ridiculous amount of fuel... I kinda remembered, that the Falcon 9 FT first stage has a LOX capacity of 287400kg.... But then again, the first stage has to punch through a whole lot more atmosphere than the actual lander thingy, so the number I had in my head was just way too large.

Do you know the Underhanded C contest?
You don't have to write a malicous app to be obviously malicious. You can just disguise an attack vector as a bug and if discovered: "Ooops!! Who could've known this would lead to remote code execution! Totally fixed" And then introduce a similar vector a few patches later.

...these sort of people call themselves "Naturheilpraktiker", 'Naturopaths' and they charge a lot more than AU$60k, while presenting an active health risk to everyone who uses their 'service'. Be glad in Australia they're at least not killing people with their silly copper tubes...
