No fun for you. All the fun is for all those other people who are now going faster than you.
Remember, objects in mirror are LOSING!!

More likely, the parents and grandparents, who are the ones buying the toys, think that the kids will love them.
The RAM to go in my own battlestation* cost more than that. I find, even at about five grand all told (so far+), it's still cheaper (and more achievable) than piloting any of these bad boys in the real world. Let along things that actually leave the ground.
The Xbox and Playstation compatibility is probably more to do with standards that any actual work that went into making it so.
* Not my actual battlestation, but a pretty fair example of what I'm talking about.
* I live in a country where we pay about twice as much for hardware as in the US, too, which doesn't help.
After Bessie Smith, and she has grown from a 133Mhz Pentium with 32 MB RAM and 2 (Count 'em, two!) 1.2 GB hard drives in true axe-of-my-forefathers style. Ahem. Ready?
CPU: Intel Core i7 5930K Haswell-E 3.5GHz Hexacore CPU
RAM: 24GB (6 x 4GB) G-Skill RipJaws 1600 DDR3 RAM
GPU:EVGA Nvidia GTX 780Ti KingPin edition
GPU: Another one just like it. All the shiny, are belongs to me!
SSD: 2 x 256 one for Windows, one for Linux
HDD: 2 x 1TB HDD, RAID 0, for data and games I'm not playing right now.
PSU: 1200W CoolerMaster Silent Gold
Case: Corsair Graphite 760T
Monitors: 3 x 24 inch, giving me a great big shiny 5760x1200 field of view
I also have a copy of WinTune 97 that I have carried across all the iterations of this machine. A benchmarking run takes around 5 seconds now, so it's probably not all that accurate, but as a historical document, it's very interesting.

That would be Clarke, Arthur C.
It indicates that when all the science tells you there is a problem, it would be a good idea to do something about it before it's too late?
Mass has a relationship with density. The crust is less dense that the mantle, so more crust=less mass. The mountains float on the mantle in a similar way to icebergs on water, ie they displace mantle beneath them, resulting in a 1-you-wide segment down to the core of the earth that contains more crust and less mantle, therefore containing less mass.
I would be thinking "how can I do this job in half an hour so I can then goof off for the other 7.5 hours that management think this job takes?"
It's all about slack, you know.
To send data to a nearby chromecast without needing to connect to the network that the ChromeCast is on, an Android device will link to the ChromeCast with an ultrasonic signal.
Thank you for that on-topic demonstration of the file system corruption problem.
> It first attempts to overwrite the Master Boot Record (MBR) of PhysicalDisk0, which renders the computer inoperable. If the malware does not have permissions to overwrite the MBR, it will instead destroy all files in the user’s home folder (e.g. C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\) by encrypting each file with a randomly generated RC4 key. After the MBR is overwritten, or the home folder has been encrypted, the computer is restarted. The MBR also contains information about the disk partitions. The altered MBR overwrites the bytes for these partitions with Null bytes, making it even more difficult to recover data from the sabotaged hard drive.
I know somebody around here who didn't even read the article....
No, it just means that Windows can't boot. Mount it on another machine and all the data is still there, ready to be analysed
As soon as it detects attempts to analyse it, it deletes itself completely, so the victim is left never knowing if it was really there or not.
0. You sell a home security product that is not secure and does not provide the security you advertise
1. I send you a letter warning you of the flaws in your product and the obligation I feel to advise others who may be relying on the security you advertise that isn't actually there.
