I am sure that explains all of the time the ACLU said the 2nd Amendment was a collective right, of the militia, and not an individual right. That is still their position and they misrepresented US versus Miller from 1939 to justify it.
Instead of using the exchange to steal the coins of others, I would use it to launder money. Aren't casinos used the same way?
I remember very vividly doing this on my 1974 Pinto to test the vacuum assist and the steering wheel not only locked but the force on it made it difficult to return the key to the on position leading to a very exciting few seconds.
There is a quite widespread belief that it can also engage the steering wheel lock, but AFAIK no one has been able to name a car where that happens so far.
With a steering wheel lock integrated with the key on the steering column, turning the key to off to kill the engine but runs the risk of locking the steering.
On my 2002 GMC pickup, without vacuum assist you have to push down on the brake pedal so hard to get even a modicum of effect that you alarmingly bend the steering wheel while using it to hold yourself down.
Modern cars have sufficient braking force to completely stop the engine even at full throttle.
My 2002 GMC pickup which is in excellent shape certainly passes this test under normal conditions but if the engine vacuum is lost for whatever reason like the engine stalling, you get one or two pumps of the brake peddle before it becomes so stiff that braking is severely compromised. I found this out the hard way when stopped on a hill with the engine off and I had to push on the brakes hard enough to worry about breaking something (like the steering wheel being used to hold me down to push on the break pedal hard enough to do anything) to stop a gentle roll. Later I tested it by deliberately shutting the engine off while moving.
With older cars I have driven which also had vacuum assisted brakes, they were not nearly so sensitive to the loss of vacuum. I am inclined to think any difference is because of the addition of ABS.
And on a lot of desktops, the code operating in System Management Mode can arbitrarily decide to interrupt anything.
I have actually gone backward with AT&T. I had IPv6 through tunneling for years but in the past few months AT&T started blocking protocol 41 so native IPv6 tunneling is no longer possible. Coincidentally they started blocking it about the same time that they started selling upgrades to support it.
This. This is why IPv4 will stick around for decades to come. There is too much profit potential in it, and IPv6 costs too much money to implement.
But not too much money for AT&T to block it unless you pay them extra for their own IPv6 service.
And yet Comcast is rolling out IPv6. I'm on IPv6 at home today.
And yet AT&T blocks IPv6. I had IPv6 through tunneling for many years until they "upgraded".
So let me get this straight. In the US, you have the much lauded right to bear arms, but it only applies if you actually fire a shot?
This happened not to long ago in Kansas where a person legally carrying concealed was convicted of a felony for threatening to use deadly force but not actually using it. Had he shot his attacker, he would have saved himself years of legal work.
No extra processing would have been required. ADCs and DACs at the time already supported a-law and u-law encoding for telephone systems which essentially allow 12+ bits of dynamic range to be encoded into 8 bits.
Now could an accurate higher resolution converter with a logarithmic transfer curve could have been produced? I doubt it and if it could, so what? It would only have saved about 4 bits at the cost of not being able to use existing linear converters.
I have. The half life for CFL bulbs where I am, outside of St. Louis, is about 3 months.
Now this may very well be a poor power quality issue but that is something that is beyond my control short of installing an online UPS or power conditioner for lighting and I already have 5 online UPSes or power conditioners for various other things.
Not when they fail more quickly than the incandescent bulbs they replaced.
