Your memory is incorrect.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
I switched from Apple ][ to Mac back in the early '90s.
I sometimes use Linux too.
Nope, it's Advanced Placement.
Although the College Board seems to just call it AP these days.
While Apple's current keyboards kind of look like the old chicklet keyboards, they're nothing like them in feel.
They are absolutely the best feeling keyboards in history, bar none. Short keythrow, easy keypress, quiet, perfectly sized keys, so low to the desktop that you don't need any kind of wrist rest, they're just perfect. I doubt anyone, even Apple, could come up with a much better physical keyboard at this point, maybe they could make them completely silent and a bit more durable, but that's about it.
I can't seem to find anything that gives any definitive answer to the edibility of a blobfish. There are suggestions that it's poisonous, but none of the sites saying that have any reference to what poison it allegedly contains. Several sites suggest it's inedible because it's gelatinous, but that's clearly no reason not to eat it, we obviously eat gelatin, so that assertion is patently ridiculous.
The best answer I've found as to why not to eat it is that we think it may be endangered.
That fixes the problem.
And then Firefox is again in every way superior to Chrome.
No, not "good work". And we're not going to fire any missiles at China.
The article essentially told us absolutely nothing useful.
I don't give a crap where the command and control for the malware is.
I need to know who the manufacturer is, what brands that manufacturer produces, and what specific products we're talking about.
And that's exactly what the rest of you need to know as well, because at least some of us need to know what scanners we need to find and toss in a bin. And we need to know what to look for on the backend systems that have apparently been affected so we can clean them and lock them down.
Lanxiang Vocational School (no idea if that's the right one, or, after looking at the map, if there are any scanner manufacturers in the area) is not someplace I've ever heard of before, and I don't see any obvious factories on that map.
Horrible FUD article.
Well, Linux versions do go EOL as well, and if it's being embedded in the device it isn't really going to matter what OS it's being embedded in.
That said, embedding Windoze is pretty dumb for no other reason than it's an absolutely craptacular excuse for an operating system.
Seriously, if you've got evidence of this, post it. Name names.
Making vague "infected EFI" comments is utterly unhelpful.
Slashdot is no place for your paranoid racist rant. Take it to Stormfront.
It's obvious why we don't drink it.
But... What's the long term cost on desalination vs building a secondary water distribution network? There's no reason we can't shower in filtered salt water, no reason we can't flush toilets with it, no reason we can't wash cars with it. No need to maintain residual chlorine in it, either, just disinfect it at the source. Want a swimming pool? Fill it with salt water (salt water pools are becoming more popular anyway, they're apparently cheaper to chlorinate). Hook it up to all the outside faucets, and if anybody tries to water their lawn, it'll either be self-defeating or they can switch to salt-tolerant grasses.
I'm sure plenty of industrial processes could run on salt water too - certainly not all of them, but I'd bet it's a large chunk.
It's not a solution where the runoff and treated sewage end up in freshwater rivers, but for cities that drain into the ocean, it's not a problem.
Well, my Chrysler had a key interface that failed too.
I went to the auto parts store, got a new key cylinder, and put it in. About $17, tax included.
Good call on the school's part.
Pay attention to the lecture while it's happening. Re-copy later if it helps you. Don't re-copy if you're like me and that method is physically torturous and only detracts from learning.
Exactly. And THAT is the real advancement in lecture-based education that technology permits. There's no reason to take notes at all if the information is available, and today it can be, with very little difficulty.
And while not perfect (there is some potential for interaction lost) it also removes the need to be physically present for every lecture. I just finished fixing a server problem for one of my clients from home, didn't waste any gas, didn't waste any drive time, and now get to look at Slashdot until the next call comes in. My physical presence wasn't needed, only my brain and a working net connection.
Why do we think education should be any different?
