I has been about 6-7 years since I was in Turkey. The hotel I was staying at was a regular 3 star hotel. They had a backup generator in the back alley which they seemed to share with the neighbor hotel.
The power would go out once or twice every day, mostly only for half an hour. Sometimes in the middle of the night by noise from the generator and my AC starting again.
When I arrived late at night at the hotel, I noticed that the power distribution boxes were quite hot when you was leaning against them. Also some of the local transformer stations were out in the air directly by the sidewalk, shielded only by a minimal amount of chain link fence.
It seemed like they had some issues with sizing the infrastructure.
But I had a pleasent stay there so no complaints from me.
That you need a cookie so that Facebook can remember that you don't want to be tracked.
Of course that cookie could contain a single non-unique value that states, do not track me.
But of course that Facebook doesn't really care about privacy can't come as a surprise to anyone.
There's a big difference between dead and dead dead. Only dead is slightly alive. With dead dead, well, with all dead there's usually only one thing you can do.
Because only criminals use encryption, you know.
So basically,,, eeeeeeh
I experienced the same with a Danish DNS company 15 years ago. I came up with a good name and short, never registered before. Filled out the form and paid with credit card, only to have it rejected the next day because it all of the sudden already was registered by the same registrar but to some odd company I could not find any information on.
I could find sprites and other graphics on my C64 just by looking at a ASCII dump of the memory. I could also locate music by Rob Hubbard by the looks of the ASCII dump.
Ah, the memories.
I think the anti-drug warriors are more interested in the money that are to be made from "fighting" drugs and locking people up.
I still can replace the brakepads and discs. Change the oil and things like that. But that's about it. Currently I have a problem with the alarm going at random moments if I lock it. And it is impossible to do a proper debugging. I finally found a unofficial source to get the repair manual so I can look at it but I will have by trial and error, bypassing one censor at the time.
When all the electronics starts to break down I fear it will be expensive in man hours.
And why use http(s) at all for communication.
I agree, I used to buy 1-3 apps/games pr. month. some for a dollar other a little more and a few more expensive.
Now I stopped playing games on my phone or tablet because I am sick and tired of the virtual coin-up machine that is has become.
I don't mind paying for the games I play, but I refuse keep paying for it.
According to the Wall Street Journal the proposal shows the challenges and risks facing the U.S. as it looks to new, potentially intrusive surveillance technology to help stop criminals. Many of the government's recent efforts have scooped up data from innocent Americans, as well as those suspected of crimes, creating records that lawmakers and others say raise privacy concerns. "Automatic license plate readers must not be used to collect information on lawful activity — whether it be peacefully assembling for lawful purposes, or driving on the nation's highways," says the ACLU. "Without strong regulations and greater transparency, this new technology will only increase the threat of illegitimate government surveillance." National Rifle Association spokesman Andrew Arulanandam says the NRA is "looking into this to see if gun owners were improperly targeted, and has no further comment until we have all the facts."
I have 4gb in my IMac (although just a 720gtxm) . I am not a gamer but Final Cut Pro uses the gpu when analyzing or altering video content.
