This would have been an OK thing to ask 10 years ago here. But these days, Slashdot is chock full of assholes, shills, right-wing extremists, and just trash in general. Very few worthwhile people are left here any more.
all the current refugees from there are bringing the stupid mindless liberal idiocy with them, trying to "Californicate" Nevada
Yes, because things like equal rights for black people is such a horrible concept. **rollseyes**
Network security yes.
the OMG Cisco is buying them and the Gov will spy on me now is what I could live without.
Thanks Googleing is all fine and good but a recommendation from someone that used it makes all the difference IMHO.
Interesting. How big is it? I didn't see any size estimates (nor did I spider the web site, either) but it looks pretty small -- 20 ft or less on the long side, maybe 10-15 on the short side, call it 300 sq ft. That's extremely small -- the standard size for a two car garage is 400 sq ft.
While it's impressive that you were able to produce an entire house for $7k, had you said "yeah, we build a stone house for $7k and it's only 300 square feet" it would have seemed more realistic.
It almost seems like you leave how small it is out of the "entire house for $7k" claim on purpose to make the brag seem more amazing.
I recently helped a local nonprofit upgrade to Win7 for exactly that reason.
Yes, I can think of plenty of other reasons for people to pick up a Win7 license (as the most obvious, "I just got a new laptop with Win8, help!"), but the average retail customer will realistically just use whatever the computer comes with, and keep it for the life of the machine.
If, therefore, we see an uptick in sales of an OS you can't even easily get on a new machine anymore (yes, we geeks can still get it, but Granny, not so much) - That means something.
You are, as always, a bloody liar.
UK has installed that particular shah in first place. In 1941 to be precise.
This is for a cluster that is being used not an exhibit in a glass box.
I think modifying the existing power supplies is probably the best way to go today. Replace the caps and possibly the voltage regulators with newer parts might be a really good way to go today.
I would suggest starting a project to create a modern PS that could be a drop in replacement for the old one. It could use a lot less power and be more reliable in the long run.
Did you even read TFS? The electorate fully agrees with him. Congress mostly agrees with him. The 2nd circuit agrees with him.
Yeah, we have a problem here. And the "democratically elected government" ain't it.
The results of not killing them -- two US soldiers killed, one gravely injured, several killed when a rescue chopper comes under fire and crashes. I couldn't even give you the Taliban body count -- my guess is at least two dozen killed by the 3 SEALs as they tried to escape, another dozen or more killed by a helicopter when it finally rescued the "Lone Survivor".
The results of killing them? Two dead Taliban, the 3 SEALs escape.
And in the annals of military history in any similar situation the two Taliban would have been killed by any scouting party or commandos lest they imperil their mission and escape.
It's interesting how you only say "I did it" without explaining how you did it.
Most cost estimating uses ~$100/sq ft for residential properties, which would make your stone house 70 sq. ft.
Provide some facts -- finished square feet, internal materials and features, cost of land, etc, otherwise I have to remain skeptical.
What else do they need all that nuclear equipment for? There are other ways to generate nuclear power without that kind of material.
Vietnam was a failure because we backed the French in the first place with no incentive on our part, thus breaking the first rule of warfare. Namely, never back the French when led by Frenchmen. Corsicans and women are acceptable. Well, that and because we allowed PR to influence the course of the entire war.
Who builds a house for $7,000? Maybe 50 years ago if you did all the labor yourself and it was a two room affair with no plumbing or running water.
Even a very basic kitchen these days would cost more than that, and that would just be for cabinets, plumbing, electrical a fridge and a stove.
I'd wager that the mortar alone would cost a good chunk of the $7k by itself, if by "stone house" you mean a single floor house built with entirely stone walls to the soffits.
Seems MS and Facebook should then make a mutual search deal. You gotta pool resources to compete with Google in search-land.
