It's not even the choice of tools, they seem to willfully misuse the languages to get poor results.
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).
Or keep in mind the book's 1995 sequel, "I am Spock", where Nimoy acknowledges that the character of Spock was part of his identity, and explain that he hadn't realised how people would read the title without reading the book.
You say: projector screens, something bright enough
I say: wall, no matter what projector
Pray tell, what model of projector would work on say, a 50% grey painted wall and still give decent color reproduction? What house paint works as well as a projector screen?
What is this mythical reasonably-priced projector that will work as well as a cinema projector, in a normally lit room?
projectors cannot possibly do black
We just went over this... Once again, rather than pretending to be in an H G Wells novel, address the fucking argument. Do you have an example of a projector set up that gives better contrast than a modern TV in reasonable light conditions.
the BRIGHTEST aspects of the image are so bright
Uh, yeah, that's what we mean by 'contrast ratio'? We are saying that even if your room is pitch black, the contrast ratio between the the white wall and the white light will be WORSE than the contrast ration on any modern TV.
And you can of course easily provide some darker surface to project upon
Dude, do YOU understand how light works? If you have a grey wall instead of a while wall, it means that no matter what projecter you use, you will never have white.
They are called 419 because that's the law that makes them *legal*.
The number "419" refers to the article of the Nigerian Criminal Code dealing with fraud. So, no, that does not make them legal.
True, except that in practice to DDOS any target of a reasonable size, you need to hack several thousand PCs to create a botnet. The alternative is you pay someone who has a botnet to DDOS for you.
In any case, a DDOS requires a hack, even if you were not the one to do it.
Remember that SSDs are relatively slow at writing compared to reading
Relatively slow compared to what, it's own read speeds?
You do know a spellchecker is for spelling, right? As in it's hard to misspell camera-man as cameraperson, while at lease camerawoman has the same number of letters?
Dunno about the solar efficiency, but it sure does make the picture quality better. And it makes my CDs sound so much warmer!
No, WIMP's opposite is LAPP (Linux, Apache, PostgreSQL, Python)
It *could* be that HFCS is worse than some other sugars
HFCS is demonstrably WORSE than cane sugar. The extreme majority of double-blind taste tests have shown people prefer cane sugar in their soft drinks.
As far as health effects go, HFCS is quite possibly better than cane sugar, in that people may drink less of the bad-tasting HFCS swill
I didn't know Teslas had tanks? What do they store in them?
Tell me, why do you think the scientists didn't consider this?
deciding your fate
Your fate? Really? That is rather mystical of you. To quote the philosopher S J Conner, "There's no fate but what we make for ourselves"
[quote]require the client to establish a completely new HTTP connection for every request[/quote]
Yes, like we did until very recently. However this would only be for the very large images. The smaller files are the ones that benefit most from keepalive techniques: the.js,
[quote]It will also break HTTP caching[/quote]
No, it won't. A cache that serves an incompletely downloaded file is already broken.
[quote]prevent the server from sending too many bytes, which will sit around in caches between the server and the client.[/quote]
That... is not how TCP works? The data that is sent to the client before the RST packet reaches the server will not "sit around". It will get delivered and dropped by the client.
