Fine, accept code from foreigners, but be well aware that this will make is certain that it will not be used in many corporate sites. One of the items I have to certify when using open-source in a corporate environment is that there is no foreign content. Otherwise it cannot be used. No one is going to go through the source code from something like OpenOffice and look for malicious code, and show that it does not exist, if it has off-shore content, it will not be used, period.
Given that the mere innocent mention of certain Prophets can incite a riot, I don't think even that is a good criterion.
Doing otherwise gives the most irrational types a trump card on what constitutes free speech.
My grampa was not retarded, so he wouldn't have liked it.
This is 100% nonsense, every single point. As long as people think these are the issues, there is no hope for fixing. The funding and money parts are the most absurd - American education is grotesquely over-funded.
Up near Hudson Bay in Canada is a good candidate. That's where the Canadian Shield proto-continent is, mostly unaltered since Archaen times.
Where does it say that?
More likely, he figured it wouldn't get accepted if it was utterly uninteresting. Faux outrage is far more compelling.
What the heck are you talking about? Piston rings are there to save money by not requiring precision honing of the bore and piston. If you select the materials correctly you have never needed piston rings.
Just about every model airplane engine now uses a piston with no rings, and it scales perfectly well. It's just a matter of how much it costs, and the cost has been prohibitive.
And yes, you do need to match the coefficients of expansion in some combinations of materials, and also taper the bore so that it doesn't "bell-mouth" from expanding more that the top, where it's hot, than the bottom. Either that, or allow it to be mismatched, put in even more taper, and allow heat and expansion to create the proper fit. In either case, chrome the bore, or put on a hard anodized surface to keep it from wearing out prematurely.
People knew this all 50-60 years ago, and used it in some cases. It's not cost-effective, but it's certainly feasible.
Coleman Hawkings brother?
No false positives = a little too convenient.
The utter lack of evidence is undeniable proof of a gigantic PLOT!
"Maker Shed"? Really? People have been using the phrase "workshop" in some variant for probably 1000 years. You don't need to make a up a new phrase for it.
Yeah, the universe- what a gyp!
Perhaps racist behaviour should be punished independent of any mindless "free speech" worship.
You, sir and or madame, are the worst kind of imbecile. Because as soon as you accept the notion that speech should be censored, you put someone else in the position of deciding which speech is to be censored.
Yes, that does mean you have to put up with all sort of racists, anti-semites, and plain old lunatics spewing anything they feel like. That's far better than ceding your rights.
Yes, because 99 weeks of warning that the benefits would run out simply aren't enough. Hey, here's an idea that will no doubt go over well in this venue - let's just pay people indefinitely! Why should it ever run out?
