Prior to the oxygen crisis, there was plenty of life, as well.
Because eventually they will. But when they do, they'll be a monopoly that's in the business of selling gigabit+ symmetric connections at a price mere private individuals can afford.
"Home" service from the current monopolies top out around 100 Mbits down and 10 up, and they show no sign of wanting to push those top speeds up, probably out of fear of cannibalizing the huge margins on their $250+/month "business" lines.
Names aren't important. What is important is his current academic affiliation.
Shouldn't that be "Peace Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel for Medicine and Physiology"
The Apple IIGS was a 16 bit machine, so it was really competing with the Amiga and Atari ST machines.Whether it was competitive is another story.
...because it had been developed on Macs. Halo was mostly finished when MS borged Bungie.
You missed the major one:
- 0 Counter negative points raised in "The Everything Store" and recent news stories about poor working conditions in Amazon warehouses. Steer the narrative about Amazon toward how they're building the shiny future instead of how they're out-Walmarting Walmart.
And when I read it on the Register I was told that it was "psychotropic."
The wine was flavoured with honey, mint, cinnamon bark, juniper berries and even mysterious "psychotropic resins", which might explain why people in the biblical era spent so much time spouting prophesies and wearing technicolor dreamcoats.
an interpretation which was omitted from the other news accounts.
Well? will this wine help you see things you wouldn't believe? Or is the Register seeing things that its readers shouldn't believe?
Not well, from what I can see. It requires buying/building hardware, and you have to remember to take the device if you want to access a stored password away from home. KeePass + Dropbox goes everywhere my phone does.
Gary North... Gary North...That name sounds familiar. But Why?
Ah. Found it.
"So let us be blunt about it," says Gary North. "We must use the doctrine of religious liberty to gain independence for Christian schools until we train up a generation of people who know that there is no religious neutrality, no neutral law, no neutral education, and no neutral civil government. Then they will get busy in constructing a Bible-based social, political and religious order which finally denies the religious liberty of the enemies of God."
"Don't try this at home" isn't fun. It's merely entertainment.
especially since shutting down the reactor is very easy to do (just drain the liquid nuclear fuel from the reactor)
But is that actually easy to do?
Is that something that can be reliably done if there was an earthquake? If the pumps were damaged?
If it's trivial, even in the most extraordinary circumstances, by all means go for it. But practical safety matters more than theoretical safety.
and Cray tried hard to design systems that were actually ten times faster than what had come before. Incrementalism wasn't his style. If that ten fold requirement required a hundred times as much memory, so be it.
The Cray 2 (1985) had 256 million 64 bit words of memory-- that's 2 Gibibytes in modern parlance. Of course, that's only 28 years ago, but if we ignore the hyperbole about one Cray 2 having as much memory as all previously delivered Cray machines combined, we'll downgrade that by one Moore Law cycle to just 1GB.
Thus, at least theoretically, 30 years ago, 1 GB was not wholly unreasonable.
