Generally speaking, anything with lots of parts has more points of failures. Since CFLs all have ballasts, my experience has been that spikes does take a toll, by virtue of them dying after the storm.an incandescent is just a big resister. Yes, it can break but it is fairly tolerant by virtue of being tungsten and having no other parts. This is why I spend the money for the better CFLs. I've been using CFLs for well over a decade now. Been using them since the 90s, so not an expert, but I've owned a lot of them.
Did anyone really expect this to go any other way. SCOTUS has been bought and paid for by corporate interests. This is why they should have term limits not unlike the President. 12 - 15 years, max.
Yeah, and don't forget that "loud pipes save lives" around typical inattentive drivers. This thing is silent but deadly.
That's like going to Slashdot to read the articles. Sure, you COULD, but...
Your girlfriend or wife will say no, it's how you use it, but that's only a half truth.
Someone with a smaller striatum who knows how to use it is likely going to give more pleasure than someone with a large striatum who is clueless about how the female brain works, but women prefer someone with a large striatum who knows how to use it over either.
Of course, your striatum can be too large - and despite what you see in the movies, women do not like having their hippocampus jostled by some monster brainpart.
More pseudoscience. They say that they're not sure whether this means that porn shrinks your brain, or if the shrunken brain causes porn viewing. But, this leaves out the very real possibility that this correlation means nothing whatsoever. The site below collects correlations that look pretty convincing in the graphs, but quite obviously are unlikely to be cases of causation in either direction:
SGI's still around, of course, they have an office within walking distance of my house. Dunno what they do these days.
The company currently calling itself "SGI" was originally called "Rackable Systems" before they bought SGI's assets in 2009.
"Junior has permission to use this gun, but only at these times"
Are you fucking kidding me? This isn't a toy or an internet device, it is a self defense tool. I think that mandating "smart" guns is stupid, but this is even more stupid. Most people can't even program their DVR, and you want them to program a GUN?
The beautiful thing about a gun is its simplicity: simple point and click interface. Add some basic safety and legal training, and the average person is just fine without any "smarts" to foolishly rely on.
The fact that a web browser that I use includes things that legitimize DRM is certainly not a win for me. The only possible "win" for me is when someone creates a Firefox-based web browser that doesn't include this garbage.
I have principles I am not willing to surrender. I can see that you may not have such things. Even the mere existence of DRM is a disgrace.
Except that RIGHT NOW, TODAY, Firefox supports a plug-in architecture which allows Adobe Flash and Microsoft Silverlight to run and play DRM-encumbered content. Just like every other major browser we've been using for the last two decades. Now they want to make a better, safer, way to do it, and people are upset?
I'm glad to see that even the ACs around here see the benefit of this. I read enough of the article (really) to get a pretty good feel, and wondered if
And yes, there are some real life parallels to zombies, like the AC said, or rapidly spreading infectious disease. Interesting stuff.
It could be cleverly disguised as a bit of MD5 but is actually something encrypted with a 33 character one time pad.
...of bullshit. How this poorly written piece of crap got on Slashdot, I have no idea.
Right now no one knows the opinion of those 2307 people so it can't be reported on.
In case you've been sleeping under a rock, this is the 21st Century. Not knowing something doesn't stop the media from reporting on it.
Feel free to start such a team, and get that competing implementation going.
If you need to add exceptions to get a tool to work... the tool is wrong for the job.
Well yeah - that's why you add exceptions: to indicate that this tool shouldn't be used for that job, because it's the wrong tool for the job.
