According to the Arduino site, the Mega has 54 digital IO pins, and 16 analogue pins.
Was anyone really expecting anything else? They certainly wouldn't ever have considered Airbus, the GOP and the public would have slaughtered whomever made the decision to buy non-American, regardless of the benefits the alternatives might have had. That plane is as much an ambassador for the US, as the passengers flying on it.
The more reality diminishes the realm of nonsense, the more subscribers to nonsense will fight back with increasingly extraordinary claims, demanding they be taken at face value.
Agreed, DDOS today pretty much belong in the realm of vandalism and script kiddies. Sadly, it is still a low skill-high damage attack.
Underground cables are reliable, robust and requires minimal maintenance when properly installed.
IIRC underground cabling have another advantage over aerials; They can be made from far cheaper materials/alloys, such as aluminium, rather than just copper.
That, and the installed capacity. It seems to me that power companies gamble with projected load, trying to rationalize less expensive cables, at least on new installations. Of course then there is the overall age of the existing grid. IIRC the current US grid is just getting old, designed for a time with a much lower load, and no amount of "smart grid" can magically increase available capacity sufficiently.
Seems to me that it deployed during the powered stage of the flight.
I was wondering the same thing. Someone got their calendar seriously wrong.
There is that.
I just realized (due to another
Never mind, wrong post.
Why? They are testing a new launch system, mistakes happen and you learn from them.
In all fairness, SpaceX is doing remarkably well for a start-up. Besides, their recent failure was an experimental test flight, not a launch.
These people are parasites, and leeches, whose evasion is helping to drive UP the cost for everybody else.
Public transportation is en expensive service, mostly subsidized through taxes, these hypocritical parasites help make it that much more expensive for everybody else.
I hope the Swedish authorities take an idea that was floated when the same was about to happen in Denmark.
The fines the "organization" pay, are to be treated as taxable income.
