amanfromMars a person of ill repute?
of Catalan do they need to know?
have put a shortcut to the clock in startup.
that Geoffrey of Monmouth would have done so much better if he'd used his own material. And as for that Shakespeare bloke - complete plagiarist if you ask me.
No, no, no! Everybody knows the correct command is "computer lights".
"The general principle that we pay people for their information and contributions is critical if we want people to live with dignity as machines get better,"
Except IP law was never designed to put a price on information*. And in any case how is that going to help the information poor i.e the people who actually stand to be out of work by Google's robots. It seems to me that Lanier is actually infected by the very techno utopianism he's made a career out of decrying.
Yes he's added the meaningless *contributions" in there as if that was going to fool anyone.
in your parallel universe where every one uses Itanium?
So the FSM also comes in Hokkein style.
Did she really say "It's fun to
be play with" non-ironically?
a full height drive somewhere. Not much good as a doorstop as I've long since removed the guts but It will make a damn impressive case for a project someday.
A Raspberry Pi would fit in just fine. Hey, why not go for a cluster? Still cheaper than buying an actual Mac.
You mean people saying that they really don't like him. Not a very high bar I think.
sarcastically. €3k is peanuts for the sort of person they seem to be looking for.
€3,000 for a month's work. Forget the pork - break out the cocaine and hookers.
You'd need two arms for that.
Arduino. I tried NodeMCU and the Python based equivalent but couldn't get either to work. (I think there was some sort of version incompatibility but I couldn't be bothered hunting it down.) On the other getting it to work with Arduino involved nothing more than adding a url in the settings. Running a webserver on a board the size of your fingernail is really quite impressive.
Since Alacatraz prison has long been closed I thought you were saying that it had been turned into luxury apartments. But since you weren't saying that I want my cut when it happens.
"I could see some shonky landlord seeing this and putting multiple "boxes" per room and then screaming how it's unfair that his new "disruptive business model" is being regulated out of existence by the existing business interests."
Which is a situation that would justify making a law forbidding the practice. What people are objecting to is the misuse of a regulation designed for an entirely different purpose because one person or group with no mandate has decided they don't like it.
If you don't understand the concern just replace "box" with "gay sex" or "electronic device" or anything else authorities have tried to ban out of ignorance and prejudice.
has other preferences.
Either that or you're doing something really fun.
The only business they have any business being in is chemical supplies.
Great. I've been waiting for a remake of the Robocock series for years.
Bear in mind that a niche product is not the same as a niche industry. As an example: I'm currently designing a USB controller for an azimuth thruster. A niche of a niche and there's probably a few hundred people in the world who'd be interested in such a thing which is nowhere near going to pay the tooling costs for injection molding. On the other hand it probably enough to pay a competent person to design the thing using a combination off the shelf parts and domain specific 3D-printed parts while still selling it at a non-silly price. Now multiply by N where N is an unknown but likely substantial number. At the field is populated by tinkerers like me but I smell a business opportunity.
They have a whole forum dedicated to just that.
Dammit. Beat me to the Flesh Gordon reference. Have an upvote.
That there's a market opening for an all live action* remake of Flesh Gordon.
*I mean no crappy cgi, of course.
Can I put one in the other? It would still make more sense than US gun policy.
would show dangerous signs of intelligence.
I give up. There is nothing I can say about this
so the slow reader can see something in the corner. Now, multiply that by 100.
you can just make out the dashcam for recording wacky orbital near misses.
to work on my manuscript of 'Tintin and the Lesbian Separatist Collective Mystery'. Tens if not hundreds of sales await.
On second thoughts I'll let someone else do it. I'd rather have the plonk.
"Which country are you in where you can purchase penicillin over the counter?"
I didn't realise I needed to wear a dirty mac and talk in code just to get an antibiotic prescription filled. More seriously, I have seen people furious at the pharmacist for doing what what's called in Australia "brand substitution". Even suggesting that they might want to save a significant amount of money can be taken as a mortal insult.
it also coincides with the introduction of the potato thus proving that the Irish are the true philosophers and that you should eat more chips.
I was going to point out that the Bragg cluster is in fact named after Lawrence and William Bragg but I won't because it would involve making a terrible pun.
It was on the cards.
I didn't say the problem was rejection.Most such surgery goes well as the work of Fred Hollows* showed. But there's a small but significant proportion of cases which don't go well and there mostly the result of the eye not adapting well to something it didn't evolve to contain.
*I'm not sure how well Hollows is known outside of Australia, but if you haven't heard of him look him up. Edit:I see you have heard of him.
Ignoring more general implications of actually having created a working organ from stemcells (that can't be significant can it?) cataract surgery is a pretty simple procedure done under local anesthesia. The difficult part is managing the consequences of having a foreign body implanted in the eye. That's doable in a country with decent health care, not so much in the third world. So yes this does solve a real problem.
Well we could discuss it, but maybe we should stick to something more tractable like the existence of god.
that following in the footsteps of the great tech pioneers it's made from paper. Can't figure out the rest of the acronym though.
Dougal rhymes with Google. Shouldn't be too difficult to work in a Father Ted joke there, or for extra points, try the Magic Roundabout.
Let's face it it's always spam.
and keep the PLA busy watching the accelerometer data trying to work out if I'm watching porn. When the Chinese regime falls you'll have me to thank.
Of course there will be cameras in the nose - computers don't have eyes.
Taking a 500m curve at mach 5 may be Superman's idea of a fun ride but it ain't mine
