Well It is a connected set so that rules out an infinite number of images without bothering to actually calculate or look for them.
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).
" The dispute arises from a section of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act that no one thought could apply to vehicles when it was signed into law in 1998"
Do the editors even read this site ? Virtually everyone realized this could apply to just about anything that ran code. There was even the infamous use garage door opener case
And the HP and Lexmark toner cartridge cases which were just about embedded serialization
yeah so let's take out copyrights from everyone involved in the nazi system and their estates...
as far as I understand the diaries were published by other people - not by him - who inherited the copyrights to them. basically there would need to be some special clause to put them in public domain.
That's nice what the hell does it have to do with anything you are replying to ?
The set is complex not random. You'd no more expect particular random images in it than you would an indefinitely iterated sierpinski gasket.
Anyway at this point I am guessing is that "Ask Ethan" made friends with somebody at Slashdot. Which explains why these non news non stories keep showing up here.
I've encoded them in my mind. I've encoded them in my mind.
Really whats the 500th base pair in their DNA ?
LOL do you run 5 accounts to mod yourself ?
The set is encoded in a one line, that defines every point in it.
Technically the description of the Mandlebrot set is encoded within the observable universe so there is a problem in recursion her.
Second how is this surprising to anyone ? It's long been possible to describe and mathematically manipulate sets with more elements than the observable universe.
60 million is the number now?
Let me guess, if I don't believe your statements - which is a criminal offense in most of Europe - I should be thrown in jail?
Sorry you have me confused with a European, or an American leftist. I disagree with you but I still support your right to make an idiot of your self in public as much as you can.
off topic indirectly : Doctor something or another ( the real bad nazi doctor in a death camp ) has a ton of research done on his victims, including brain fluid amounts. in the 90's it was ruled that data could not be used. for what reason I'll never know. but the data was valid data.
and btw talk about instant godwin
Your word of the day is CO Conspirator
1. a fellow conspirator; associate or collaborator in a conspiracy.
Now I have no idea what your definition of crime is, but planning, orchestrating and aiding and abetting the death of 3% of the population of the earth at the time (WWII deaths 60 million) should measure up.
The classic is the one on plastic bags "This is not a toy suffocation hazard"
story I'll just leave that there for you to look at. Artic will be completely ice free by 2013, by your scientists that shouldn't be questioned.
Here it is 2015 and I'm the idiot for pointing out they are wrong. This is why I think science is groupthink. They made a prediction, they were 100% wrong in outcome, and I get called names by pointing it out. This happened in the past. A guy said the earth rotates around the sun and had evidence, but everyone else called him a heretic and said he was wrong and the sun rotates around the earth.
You are completely correct about the failed predictions of the enviro doom crowd (How is your soylent green today ?). Just a minor peeve though the Earth rotates on its axis and revolves about the Sun.
Actually we'd happily ignore your delusional ass if you'd stop trying to impose your beliefs on the rest of us,
Quod Erat Demonstrandum,
The only people your kind leave alone, are those that hit back.
It's pretty obvious you need some mandatory sensitivity training.
So do most American church goers. Your point?
He's an asshole.
If you want to claim every religious person in the world needs sensitivity training, your probably an asshole as well.
