I did some programming in DOS, never even came close to that limit. That's why I'm curious. Look up how much working memory the NES had some time, Duck Hunt clones wouldn't even need buffers for scrolling!
The movie didn't show us the alloy under a microscope.
I once programmed an arduino to move my mouse cursor in the shape of a square to keep my workstation from auto-locking per company policy. There's a slider control on the Arduino board that I have that I used more-or-less as an on-off switch. For fun I'd hook it up to my supervisor's machine just to hear him try to explain it to somebody.
What was so hard about making a Duck Hunt clone fit in that memory footprint?
'Common sense' and 'studies' are not interchangeable.
You're witnessing the failure of that philosophy.
How many models of Android phone do you think are available right now?
Yeah, you can go buy any other device that only has slightly less bloatware.
Sorry I didn't catch the joke, it was covered in the blood of a technician.
That'd be funnier if those stories weren't mainly about how the laws weren't really working.
I was a backer of this project that was pretty much the same:
Nice screen at 2048 x 1536, but not yet delivered. They just about hit their funding goal of £60,000 on 29th November 2014, and they're now taking pre-orders. It would probably be better to just pre-order one of these than back a whole new Kickstarter - at least these are close to production.
Although I agree with your sentiment, Slashdot is dying. It was painfully clear in the thread about James Horner. However I did want to ask: When did Ask Slashdot EVER produce no criticism? I remember ten years ago when the big complaint was that people would ask any question at all when there was the magic Google around.
You're averse to clickbait so you fequent Slashdot?
Your joke mighta been funny if it had contained a humorous punchline.
Would you prefer $20 or $30 per month for ad-free Hulu Plus?
