What the HELL is this website about?!
IANAP but would a a powered slingshot (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gravitational_slingshot#Powered_slingshots) through the zone between the Event Horizon and the Point Of No Return of a Black Hole could theoretically facilitate achieving enormous speeds enabling fast deep space travel? Or would you have to do it outside of the Point Of No Return?
IANABL too but maybe 200 years ago it was a fraud... nowdays such titles have little meaning
I googled around after that judo player - she was the first woman from SA to ever compete in the Olympics, girls arent even allowed to PE classes in SA. Thats probably why she was crap too, but it looks like her appearance on the mat was political but for the reasons of gender equality.
I see, it makes sense after reading their ads as well. Still, the banks are cool enough with it to let you put "Lord" on your debit card, which has the desired effect when paying for stuff I guess.
I have a few friends who are Lords in Scotland. Neither are even Scottish citizens (one is Columbian in fact), but the Scottish law allows you to call yourself Lord legally if you haven even so much as a square foot of land. So you can buy a piece of swamp up in the highlands as a novelty gift and your friend can now change his title to Lord (on bank cards, official letters etc).
What is the difference between having a new language for "Flash-like" features instead of extending an existing one?
- Both require the browser binary to parse the script and execute it, but if you have two languages you need two scripting engines.
- With two engines web developers need to take more care because the user ecosystem is more fragmented (this guy has a browser with recent JS but older RichStuffWhateverVM for some reason).
- How exactly do you distinguish the use cases? Several years ago, an HTML Div that 'animates' by sliding up when you click a button would have been considered rich stuff. Now its pretty straightforward and the "rich stuff" is something else.
In summary, things change, HTML5's Cavas and Websocket may not be ready to completely replace what we got used to with Flash, but they are pretty damn close and it didn't take them all that long (actually these standards are moving forward incredibly fast).
- a major university in ukraine that i know of has on its campus intranet a 400+TB system exclusively for piracy. I mean, university set up, where people upload movies, music, games, software, etc. this is actually a university function that they figure saves them on outgoing bandwidth.
Ooh I remember the times of FTP hubs on all uni networks in Poland. All administered by students on the uni WAN. They only forbid it like 5 years ago. Those were the days...
While we were testing Facebook ads, we were also trying to get Facebook to let us change our name, because we're not Limited Pressing anymore. We contacted them on many occasions about this. Finally, we got a call from someone at Facebook. They said they would allow us to change our name. NICE! But only if we agreed to spend $2000 or more in advertising a month. That's correct. Facebook was holding our name hostage. So we did what any good hardcore kids would do. We cursed that piece of shit out! Damn we were so pissed. We still are. This is why we need to delete this page and move away from Facebook. They're scumbags and we just don't have the patience for scumbags.
Thanks to everyone who has supported this page and liked our posts. We really appreciate it. If you'd like to follow us on Twitter, where we don't get shaken down, you can do so here: http://twitter.com/limitedrun"

Unless he has some very old gear there is a voltage converter built in. Buy plug converters in any electronic store on the spot.

And it involves sending a lot of baseball players to space, with steady supplies of baseball bats.
Value Added Tax would have been an excellent solution - if only it was the only solution used.
