yeah, they should take that AND ITER's money and give to the NIF. Sounds like they're moving along pretty well on a teeny tiny budget...

Don't be ridiculous. NIF is a project for designing fusion weapons, not a power reactor.

Oh, and is 4 billion dollars "a teeny tiny budget" now?

The myth is that we can wipe our ass with the biosphere continually and still live here.

If you need to feel bad to change your habits, then I hope you do. Otherwise, all else equal I would prefer that you feel good about yourself, because hurt people hurt people.

Thank you for providing supporting evidence. We're not actually doing that, but you choose to believe it anyway.

Alright. I expect to see a new window system built by you by next weekend. Let's git r dun!

Why not, it worked for Berlin/Fresco or whatever it was called.

Berlin even uses CORBA inside the display server itself, although in-process objects are accessed almost as quickly as normal objects with virtual methods.

Yow buzzwords from the past!

At least [EU] HAS a parliament, unlike the WTO, NATO

EU has a powerless parliament, who cannot propose a directive, who cannot have the last word against the EU council (except to reject a directive),

So they cannot have the last word, except that they have the last word?

and who does not decide the budget.

Except that they can reject it.

The power to destroy a thing is the absolute control over it.

The non elected EU commission that is only real power in the EU besides the individual ministers of each country that deal with european affairs.

The commission is the cabinet. I cannot think of any system where the cabinet is elected.

Since the electing circles in the EU and most of Europe don't work as in the UK/US, you'd have to explain everyone how a senate works

Why would someone from the UK know how a senate works? The UK doesn't have a senate.

Actually, mobile networks seem to be adopting IPv6,

Hum.

bash-3.2$ ip addr show dev rmnet0

Not all of them. (This is Free Mobile, in France.)

Right, and the company I work for has 200+ servers that need to be accessible from the world. Sure, we could do some horrible port forwarding bullshit and run services on non-standard ports and all that crap but why should we?

"Well known ports" is the dumbest part of the whole internet.

Fucking SRV records, what are they for?

This universe shipped by weight, not by volume. Some expansion of the contents may have occurred during shipment.
