Red Hat Enterprise Linux (and, therefore, CentOS, Scientific Linux, etc.) 6, which is the current version of the OS, comes with python 2.6. Version 5 of the OS, which is still supported, comes with python 2.4 and an optional python26 package, which installs python 2.6 in parallel with the default version. I assume that similar things are true for other long term support distributions.
In these distributions, using python 2.7 would require building it yourself and install it in parallel with the system-supplied version. This would add to the porting problems, that others have mentioned, the cost of maintaining python yourself. Thus, until these distributions update python to version 2.7, it is good that project maintainers provide support for these older versions.
In Metric, it is 23.25 mm.
In American, it is 0.95836768342951360263 times the diameter of a quarter. Or, in more standard units, 0.00021188757655293088 football fields. Approximately.
Probably because with these vegetables they will be in Mediterranean diet heaven. All they need is olive oil, but olive trees take time to grow. Olive trees would probably thrive in the hot climate, so they, too, could be included in the project in the long term.
According to the TFA they also produced barley (Greek salad with barley rusks—yum!) and salad rocket (for those who prefer their salad green instead of Greek).
In the Amiga community there is the similar notion of bounties, where people collect money, to be given to whoever implements some required functionality, usually a port of something useful.
I'm not sure one would want someone to think that one is bounty hunter, but at least it's better than giving the impression that they accept bribes.
Not really. Brushing works mainly by mechanical action. The "chemicals" are mostly there for flavor.
In this sense, 6 seconds seems just about right. My dentist recommends 7-10 passes with the toothbrush per tooth (or group of teeth, given that you can brush more than one tooth at the same time). Grinding your teeth for six seconds would make at least this number of passes.
If you ask your dentist how to brush your teeth properly, you'll learn that proper brushing also involves massaging your gums, which is something that I doubt this new-fangled contraption does. And good luck replacing flossing. If there's food stuck between your teeth, not only is the new toothbrush not going to remove it, but its functionality is going to be impaired, as well.
Starring Barbara Benedetti as the Doctor. Quite good she was, too!
I also discovered this today. Fortunately, there is already an add-on to restore the old functionality.
As far as I can tell, the only major browser that allows you to hide the tab bar, when only one tab is shown, is SeaMonkey. The latest versions of Chrome, Opera, Firefox, and IE force you to show the tab bar at all times.
Shouldn't the options be powers of 2?
My current computer, with 4 GB of memory, has 131072 times more memory than my first computer, a 32K BBC Micro.
I voted "100000", which is the right order of magnitude, but less than the actual value. Even when I was using Windows XP, which could use only 3.25 GB of memory, that was 106496 times the memory of the BBC Micro.
Google's point here is to obviously make them as invisible as possible to minimize users that block ads. Most people won't go around other android stores or internet sites searching for software, they're fairly happy with google play.
Quite right! Until today, I didn't know that there were ad blockers for Android. With today's action, not only has Google made me aware that there are, but, thanks to TFA, I know where to find them: F-Droid. Excellent!!
