HAL still won't open that damned pod bay door.
Sometimes being able to work is more important to people than having cheap trinkets in the shops. Maximizing happiness and maximizing "stuff" may not necessarily be the same thing.
My plutocrat can beat up your autocrat!
I have a feeling that the typical ATX power cable is a much lower gauge than each wire in a USB cable. Or are USB 3.1 cables going to be thicker?
Is anybody pretending that corporations and politicians aren't already effectively doing the same thing?
Almost every day on the way to work, I hear at least one radio ad for "repairing your company's online reputation...We can help remove false and angry commentary and ratings about your company and its products. A poor online reputation can hurt your bottom line. We can restore your good name. Call now!"
The majority of people on this world either lack critical thinking and reasoning skills (not totally their fault they are conditioned since early childhood), or have the ability to ignore/go against it since they are more concerned with their own well being and daily troubles than worry about the issues troubling humanity as a whole.
I'll agree that the majority of people lack well developed critical thinking and reasoning skills, but I do wonder why you equate "being more concerned with your own well being and daily issues [than with some nebulously defined future state]" with a lack of critical thought? All things being equal, I wish our species as a whole nothing but the best now, and tomorrow, but if you tell me that, say, putting a bullet in my head right now is going to make the world a better place for "future generations," my well developed critical thinking skills are most certainly going to be more concerned with my own well being.
Puti boy, for $30 more per hour, I can re-write this to not sound so cheesy and fake to yankee ears.
These well-paid agent provocateurs are dedicated to destroying the value of the Internet as an organizing and political tool.
Cool! Where do I sign up?
why the F*ck do u need 10g @ home??
VNC/remote desktop running at 4k resolution and 60 Hz refresh rate?
I didn't think to mention it in my previous post, but a dual-socket AMD Opteron 63xx system might be a reasonable alternative. Opterons appear to be significantly cheaper than Xeons (and in some cases, cheaper than I7s), to the point that you could get a 16-24 core AMD system for close to the same price as a high-end i7 (let alone a Xeon). I have no idea which would win on the benchmarks, though.
By the way, what sort of open-source GIS tools do you use? I occasionally find myself wanting to do GIS-related stuff, but I don't know where to start.
He probably actually did do illegal things (e.g. trying to hire a hitman) and deserves punishment for that, but he should have gotten away with it because the State violated the rules of evidence (using parallel construction, etc.). Even if Ulbricht is an evil man, the ends do not justify the means.
It's because I prayed really hard for a trip to Risa.
Aren't GIS problems embarrassingly-parallel enough that you should be worried about finding a faster GPU (or maybe switching to a multi-socket Xeon system) rather than about having the fastest single-threaded performance?
That is perfectly valid in the Furbian dialect of English.
Does anyone know how much airport security there is for a small private plane or jet at the same airport they frisk your gran?
None. At all. Typically, they will cheerfully wave you through the door (often offering you fresh baked cookies first, at one of the larger FBOs) to where the aircraft are waiting.
