Your comments make you sound eliteist. "Programming" encompasses more than writing computer instructions with a given lanuage (Python, Java, C, etc.). I can agree that "Programming" the layout of a page using HTML is completely different than writing a program that renders that page, but the is no need to be a dick about it.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
This doesn't really change your point but you do realize that 75 years ago there were fewer than HALF the people than are around now.
It occurs to me (aas it should have LONG ago) that when something secret becomes more and more "known" that it is being used as a distraction to help hide the newer "really secret" secret.
What I am saying is that the NSA is a decoy. Who and what is the new intelligence organization?
There is a menu bar right next to the search box labeled "Filter"
The majority of input energy would be solar, growing the plants. the machinery used to harvest and transport it wouild run on electriciy and fuel cells just like everything else. It is just a matter of A) generating enough plant matter, and B) getting the infrastructure to critical mass to become sel sustaining.
Sure, it sounds far fetched. But hey, you have to start some where some time. Right?
No it isn't, but you have conveniently missed part of the equation. How many human lives has uncontrolled drug use claimed?
I completely agree that there are a number of recreational drugs that should have no more control and oversight than cigarettes and alcohol (which are also deadly), but some should. I could care less if someone I know and care about smokes marijuana, but I feel much differently about methamphetamines. I may be wrong but doesn't it seem likely that if the less harmful drugs were more available then the more harmful ones would be less prevalent?
It IS incompetence; It is incompetence of the employer.
I thought educational use was exempt from copyright restrictions.
When any version of a truth is used to deceive it is nothing more than a lie.
For residential I like solar produced hydrogen powered mini-turbines. Individual or neighborhood sized units.
Alas I am not a physicist or an engineer.
They want to negotiate terms and fees for the use of scare tactics like "The Red Menace is among us!"
I saw this discussion on another site and someone asked 'Why can they make rock solid tamper proof slot machines but not voting machines?' I realize they are not the same animal but the concepts of security and tampering must be very similar.
I prefer to tell them what I actually charge for services; if they still want my help then its worth my time. I've gotten to the point where I don't do "free" work, if I do any pro-bono work there is some other significant compensation for me.
I don't care if anyone tracks my preferences or shopping history. What I care about is; 'Is that information "Personally Identifiable"?' In other words its not that they know what I do, its do they know, specifically, who I am.
I am all for research and marketing to tune products and advertising, but they don't need to know my name or various identifiers to do it.
I thought they determined that this was about more than shifting floor mats; that there is a legitimate problem with the software. You could experience this problem WITHOUT floormats in your car.
I don't drive a Toyota and if I did I could not afford one new enough to have this problem anyway.
