How long until systemd absorbs emacs?
The biggest problem with the space shuttle wasn't tiles or tanks or SRBs or O-rings. Or even needing to practically rebuild it between flights.
The biggest problem was that the first four orbiters should just have been the Mk-I model. All those things that were found to be problems in the Mk-I model should have been improved or even fixed in the MK-II and subsequent orbiters.
Yes, they made improvements in the later orbiters based on early experiences with the Columbia, and fixed the O rings after the Challenger accident, but there never was a truly improved model.
From the article:
Kaplan and his colleagues found this stellar gem using the National Radio Astronomy Observatoryâ(TM)s (NRAO) Green Bank Telescope (GBT) and Very Long Baseline Array (VLBA), as well as other observatories.
The National Science Foundation (NSF) Astronomy Portfolio Review committee chaired by Daniel Eisenstein of Harvard University recommended in August 2012 that the Robert C. Byrd Green Bank Telescope should be defunded over a five year period. Further information on this divestiture can be found on the AUI webpage and at www.savethegbt.org.
In the fiscal year 2014 budget, the US Congress did not recommend divesting the Green Bank Telescope. The Telescope is looking for partners to help fund its $10 million annual operating costs.
The OMG Ponies slashdot April Fools joke was better
It at least functioned.
One thing that I don't get is how the current wave of web site redesigns are actually, in any way, tablet/smart phone friendly.
On a device with a small display concise and space eficient presentation of information, without excess white space or eye candy, is necessary if you don's want to end up feeling like you are peering at the site through a soda straw. Using large fonts, wide line spacing, and lots of white space just makes a small display effectively smaller.
On a device with a low bandwidth or expensive connection reducing the number of bits that needed to render the page is desirable to get the page to render in a reasonable time and cost. This is another reason to eliminate large, eye candy, images.
On a device that may have limited computing power it is desirable to use those resources efficiently, effectively, and only when necessary to deliver the information content of the site,
And, the one sin Slashdot beta hasn't committed, why should I need an app for something that should just display in a browser if the web presence was properly designed?
Oh, and by the way, if this is supposed to make it better for tablet and smart phone users - it doesn't.
Information density and presentation is even more important on the smaller screens.
Almost got it.
There are a number of licensed gun dealers engaged in retail sales "in the greater D.C. area". They are in Maryland and Virginia, not the District of Columbia.
There are almost no licensed gun dealers in the District of Columbia itself. A D.C. resident would be crossing state lines to buy a firearm in Maryland or Virginia. Most D.C. dealers exist to support government agencies and private security organizations. They do not deal with the general public. Last I heard (a while ago) there was at least one dealer that did not stock inventory or do normal retail sales but would do interstate transfers. There was supposed to be a retail dealer looking for a place of business and having difficulty.
The D.C. dealer situation may have gotten better while I wasbt looking but it is probably still bad. Glad I don't liuve there.
