Lightning is DC. Not many survive that
You know they used Amigas to developp Lightwave while doing CGI for Babylon 5 right?
They're not targeting the same market. But even then, the batteries are on the floor (meaning really low gravity center) and electric motors will have *way* more torque than even BMW's inline 6. But as I said, they're not catering to the same market.
A friend's neighbor owns a Model S. Winters get much colder than -20C in Montreal and the car has no problems (albeit with diminished range, but not by much)
Something like Chevy's Volt but with *way* more range on electric alone.
Hydro-Quebec (wonder where that name comes from) generates most of its power using, guessed it, Hydro. We also had Gentilly which was a Candu nuclear plant (shut down in 2012). What's nice about that design is it can use waste fuel from other reactor types
Some women have higher silicon contents than others
Tchernobyl? learned how to hot-flash a BIOS thanks to that one...
All bongo drums and smoke signals here. A little laggy in Quake
"The Commodore, like the Apple ][, was a 6502 machine. Neither of these had anything to do with Microsoft, which was only working with the 8080 instruction set. "
Wrong on both counts. Commodore's BASIC interpreter was written by Microsoft. Apple's Applesoft was also written by Microsoft (albeit much slower than Integer BASIC).
Integer BASIC is the one Woz wrote (by himself)
British Thermal Unit? just a guess...
AM would be better but can it be done on a chip?
Won't matter much if the links are cut. A radio station could at least install a temporary antenna if it doesn't have one on its roof.
"The core2 was introduced in 2006. - Almost a decade ago and core2 based computers are still quite damn fast today."
Agreed. My hands-me down i3-2100 is faster than the 3.2 C2D it replaced, yes, but I didn't fall off my chair. Anything more recent than a P4 will be usable for everyday tasks for most people.
As for AMD going down, I really don't want to go back to paying a thousand dollars for a CPU...
And YOU just made my day
