Qemu was fast compared to Bochs when running on the same architecture it was emulating in part because Bochs used full emulation all the time IIRC.
The steering third stage engine failed due to excessive vibration as a result of an imbalance in a rotor of a pump unit
While it is always possible for new design issues to be discovered, I wonder why this problem hadn't been noticed in the decades prior to 2010, when the Proton began to have repeated failures.
I believe you are wrong in both directions. It is true that anyone can learn to program, but few do it well without some talent for it. Just as most people can read and write but few will ever be a successful author.
That doesn't make literacy (computer or other) useless at all. The basic abilities are themselves useful in life. You don't have to be able to write like Hemingway to benefit from the ability to read and write. I doubt Hemingway's grocery lists were any more inspiring than mine.
Legally, no. However there are social norms against sharing someone's contact info without asking (possibly with a few exceptions if you're sure they will want the call), especially when you give it to an advertiser.
You may be thinking of commercial 3phase wiring where you get 110V phase to neutral and 208v phase to phase. In residential wiring, the final transformer coil is center tapped so you get 110 phase to neutral (center tap) and 220 phase to phase. Note that the two split phases are inverted with respect to each other because the neutral is a center tap.
SourceForge, the code repository site owned by Slashdot Media, has apparently seized control of the account hosting GIMP for Windows on the service, according to e-mails and discussions amongst members of the GIMP community—locking out GIMP's lead Windows developer. And now anyone downloading the Windows version of the open source image editing tool from SourceForge gets the software wrapped in an installer replete with advertisements.

The more money people have, the less they tend to do for the poor.
According to your logic, the people who do the most for the poor are the poor, which is a paradox since they have little to no resources to begin with. And I'm not sure how we expect the most wealthy to give a greater percentage of their income when we're already taking a greater percentage of it through progressive taxation. But let's go to the numbers. According to the IRS's 2011 numbers, charitable giving is on a bell curve. Apparently, the most charitable are on the income extremes.
It's a shame the middle class won't band together and come after the rich, but those poor idiot fucks won't realize that they have a better chance to win the lottery than to actually work their way into the upper echelons of society
I know you mentioned the lottery in jest, but the poor actually are the ones spending a large percentage of their meager resources on state lottery tickets. Maybe government should get out of the business of suckering poor people into gambling.
The solution to the ozone problem is a proof that we can do it.
No, it's not. The solution to the ozone layer issue was to ban a narrow range of chemicals that included CFC. We can't ban CO2 because that's like banning life processes. Misguided people want to use the government hammer to get the job done again, not thinking about the impact. Just cutting government loose will give it power over nearly the entire energy industry, on which our entire lifestyle and livelihood rests. It's de facto control of everything. A measured response is required, one that requires as little government mandate as possible.
Freon does not burn.
You can't breathe burning Freon because it doesn't burn.
But propane does, which you hand-waved away.
We were using freon because its predecessors were flammable. Freon was basically the last invention Thomas Midgley was responsible for that actually helped instead of hurting people-- until we found out it hurt the ozone layer.
That is the law, but it makes little sense as long as the rights holder gets their bit. Why shouldn't it be OK for me to buy a full copy of a book, mechanically black out words here and there and then resell it?
If that's OK, why shouldn't I be able to print pre-censored copies as long as I buy and destroy an unaltered version for eaach one I sell?
Since that isn't terribly environmentally responsible, perhaps I should be able to send the publisher the profit from their sale and then print and sell the modified version as long as I keep accurate count of the sales.
At no point is the author deprived of the fruits of his/her labor.
Personally, I found that ruling objectionable even though I had no use for the edited movies personally. But I see that a new service is now available that instructs a modified DVD p[layer to skip the scenes considered objectionable. The Family Entertainment and Copyright Act explicitly authorizes that model.
So by analogy, instructing the browser to skip unwanted bits on the fly should pass muster.
ABC is reporting that gene test for risk of specific diseases are not as accurate as were thought, with different labs giving different interpretations.
At least 415 gene variants now have different interpretations that could sway a medical decision, such as whether to have healthy breasts or ovaries removed to lower the risk of cancer, or to get a medical device such as an implanted defibrillator to cut the risk of sudden cardiac death.
"The magnitude of this problem is bigger than most people thought," said Michael Watson, executive director of the American College of Medical Genetics and Genomics, one of the study's authors and a partner in the data pooling project.
And it can harm patients. Rehm described a woman who had genetic testing and wrongly was told she did not have elevated risks for breast cancer. She later developed the disease but could have had preventive surgery had the right gene analyses been done.
