We're working on copying tractors.
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).
Note that the ancient Greeks had a form of copyright(?) on recipes on food made for the public. Once a new food was made, the chef had a 1 year license to make that specific dish before others could copy him/her.
Unfortunately, the source for this is at IU Bloomington's Lilly library. I do not recall the book at this time.
I like that idea.
Lets call it Flaming Chicken.
bok bok BKOK!
"Microsoft doesn't let you use product codes more than once because they'd lose money if you re-use their product."
That's why many of my cheaper clients use Linux for basic computing needs. And it is also the reason I am fluent in dealing with small end business needs in regards to Windows and Linux.
Go look up Doki Doki Panic for Famicom.
That's where US SMB2 came from. It was rebranded with "mario", and tougher. You had to beat the game with all characters, not just 1. And the waterfalls were headache-inducing.
My sister, when she was 6 (read 6 YEARS OLD), had Duke Nukem 3d with the Plutonium Pack!
My dad installed it, having played it, thought it was appropriate for her. She liked the LARD pigs piling on the bottom of the screen. I think, after she told me to shut up at the dinner table, I responded "Make Me". Her comment was "Blow it out yer ass".
It was uninstalled after that.
And then she reinstalled it. She still plays it through WINE.
I used to think the same thing, that turning off features is an evil thing.
But now, I realise that is what allows us to get cheaply hacked hardware that's about 5-10% better than what we paid for. The richest subsidises the rest of us. If all they do is change firmware, instead of tracecutting or burning fuses, then we can have what they do.
So go ahead, it gives us cheaper, better hardware. Or buy open source hardware like in article.
Or you can "preview" it here for free.
Rrrrrrrr. it's the only letter I know.
Hmm. Even I have one of those certs. Doesnt get me as many jobs, though.
I maintain servers in FreeBSD and Linux.
My desktop has been Ubuntu for the last 3 years.
The last time I dealt with Windows was for a client who bought a new desktop. And it had Windows 7 on it, so he wanted it as similar to WinXP. And it served his purpose.
So it does nothing infinitely fast?
Sounds like a fair tradeoff.
Since this thread is nearly guaranteed to not being seen by the masses, let me propose a question to you.
You quote "Often individuals/communities that regurgitate dogma and never question reality are TFNuts and malevolent (burning witches..."
Lets say, that witches were capable of cursing, remote death, and other rather nasty things. Would their deaths be justified, knowing that they could do those things? Would their deaths be justified if they claimed to have done those things to certain, named, individuals?
Seems simple to me: Put some stirling engines with big heatsinks in and out of the reactor vessel to provide continual energy for cooling. With the reactors running at 7% load, you can still siphon lots of power.
Fair enough. I understand charging for usage.
So why doesnt it work in reverse?
One of my best trolls was this post in regards to Opera. My goal was to pit FOSS operatives on Firefox against Corporate closed source software Opera. And I was able to successfully engage the conversation so that I had flaming on both sides equally fighting vehemently over their own "Right" viewpoint.
And I still ended out with a positive moderation score after people realised that I literally took over the whole conversation upwards of 200 posts to refute me and later other posters. The whole article was only around 380 posts total.
