No, you're thinking of 'du jour', which is indeed French for 'of the day' and isn't the same thing.
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).
Whichever one will get us more funding, obviously.
So does a shotgun. That's why you need to be specific about your use cases.
Yeah, its one of my favourite kind of comments where you can't quite decide if the author is a genius or an idiot.
I think some people need to double check what 'insightful' means.
I'm sure I'm being incredibly naive, but what's wrong with a plain old popular vote? I don't know why there's always this obsession with districts, electoral colleges, all of that bollocks. If you get the most votes you get the job, why must that be complicated? I'm not trying to be facetious here I'm honestly curious.
Demoblicans would be a great name for the bad guys in an 80s video game. "Commander Keen versus the Demoblicans!" just sounds right.
At 35,000 feet "what's going on outside" is nothing. You could just record a panoramic view once and play the passengers a looped tape.
I think that generally speaking, Atheists respect the scientific process because it is the same one that leads them to conclude there probably isn't a god. A good scientist is always ready to be proven wrong and the null hypothesis is central to the entire process. These principles are anathema to Theism which is, by definition, based on claims without supporting evidence - aka "faith". From a personal standpoint, the idea that anyone could actively oppose the ideals and principles of the scientific method seems completely insane, but then I'm not American.
Ah yes. "I have no ethics and would do this if I could get away with it, therefore nobody has any ethics and would do this if they could get away with it."
Good logic! The next part is where you try to deflect by calling me naïve.
Yeah how inconsiderate, don't you know they need that money to blow up some tents in a desert somewhere.
I like the quote at the end of TFA: “Things that are hostile to China, or not in conformity with the outlook of China’s government, won’t be allowed [under the new rules]” said Ministry of Culture head Cai Wu earlier this year. “We want to open the window a crack to get some fresh air, but we still need a screen to block the flies and mosquitoes.”
I like how they're worried about cracking the window when - given that actual PCs are already widespread - the door is basically wide open for anyone who cares to turn the knob.
Not the same thing. Porn 'stars' sign a contract before they appear in films or magazines or whatever, just like models or other entertainment professionals. Thus there is a legally binding agreement covering who owns the rights to the resulting media preceding any photos or videos being created, which is a very different situation indeed to the one we're discussing now.
People who have no idea what a URL is are a dying breed, just like people who know what a skipping record sounds like. Designing things with them in mind is counterproductive.
