Itanic was supposed to succeed both Alpha and i386 but then AMD came along with amd64?

MIPS ain't extinct.
They're about to enter the tablet market with a dual core SoC featuring a blazingly fast PowerVR GPU.
Performance looked a tad sluggizh but that's possibly Spidermonkey needing fine tuning for MIPS
Both the Government (Liberal/National) and main opposition party (Labor) voted for the legislation.
That's about 90% of the parliament wanting to throw us under a bus, so I'm not sure how voting for a non-niche party would have helped.
I voted Greens.
Dude, 70 years ago - build a bridge.
Bigamy is legal?
How easy is it to emigrate?
A lot of Aussies travel freely on student/working holiday visas but those dry up once you hit 30. Unless you have a European grandmother and can thus get residency, opportunities are limited, was my impression.
show some respect, Hedy was a nerd AND a movie goddess.
She's probably best recognised by geeks by her likeness (unauthorised) appearing on Corel software packaging.
*two* of them, you mean one wasn't plenty?
Californication is the follow-on series anyway. Hank (Mulder), Karen (Scully), Becca (Scully's love child with either aliens or Mulder, no one knows)
All it needs is some young Snowden-like stud (played by Tim Minchin!) to sweep Scully off her feet and make Fox jealous, all the while he's having a bit on the side with Walter Skinner's jailbait daughter. Melodrama at it's finest?
because Steve Jobs.
He he. I wondered if MIT had done a deal with Martin Odersky's Typesafe or partnered with EPFL.
Scala as a teaching language in the USA?
I don't game and my linux box has intel graphics.
I would consider a "steam machine" though if I wanted a new development box for my office desktop. Whether I stuck with nouveau or loaded the properietary graphics would depend on whether the free drivers were sufficient.
I have a friend who used to grind his own almonds as a health-kick but went back to cow's milk after his fad diet ended.
Lamb is a fairly common meat here in Australia, though not as popular in certain other countries I've visited, where it's regarded as peasant food. But then similarly, goat meat never caught on here because of the gamey taste. Kangaroo has never caught on either, which is a shame given they're culled to control overpopulation.
Switching animals isn't a whole solution but if beef is the worst offender then surely divesting in production by promoting alternatives, including vegan recipes, is a strategy worth persuing?
(Sorry if I have unintentionally offended your vegan sensibilities - I'm a pragmatist from a long line of meat-eaters!)
