...and it was a lot of fun. I met many interesting, smart and funny people there. Then the BBC bought it and instigated this absurd censorship where anything deemed offensive by the BBC was removed, including words in non-English languages. That's right, if you posted something in a language other than English, your post got removed. The blatant censorship was so ham-fisted, I left the site a couple of weeks later and have never been back.
Oh, I wish I had mod points for you, my friend.
"I have no idea. I'll have to ask my government."
"We will continue to stay laser focused on product innovation"
That's great news, Tim. You've got some catching up to do.
Do you honestly think that Romney will be any better? You could pick any president that's ever been and come up with a list of bad things they've done. All presidents are human. They're not perfect. But here, let's supplement your cherry-picked actions by Obama with some of the good things he's done.
I think that all those nutjobs that predict the end of the world on such-and-such a date should be thrown in prison when their predictions *don't* come true. Look at all the lives they ruined. People quitting their job, selling their house, giving away all their money. Yet they remain free to predict again and again.
Why is it necessary for the answers to these security questions to be correct answers? I have standard outright lies as answers for my security questions, and those answers are known only to me.
The SNES had eight HDMA channels, each of which could feed data from a table into a specific display hardware register on every scan line. The first thing I programmed on the SNES was a company logo sequence that used seven HDMA channels (which you can see in the first 12 seconds of this video if you care.
When I later moved on to the GBA, I was aghast to see that the HDMA channels were gone from the hardware. To me, that was a big step down.
By the way, though the SNES is a 16-bit machine, it actually does 24-bit address resolution. You can test this for yourself by setting the bank register to $7F and doing an indexed load from say, $FF80,X where X > $80. It will read from bank $80 and not wrap around within bank $7F
Bejeweled 3's Diamond Mine game variation does it for me. No guns, just lovely, lovely gems that explode in such a satisfying way.
Just Diamond Mine, though. All the other game variations blow.
I got the OTA update for my Nexus S. While I have Google Now, etc, there is no facial recognition to unlock the phone. Were I to hazard a guess, I would say this might be due to the front-facing camera drawing taking too much of a toll on the battery to make the feature practical.
Remember when the History channel showed history programs? And when you could actually learn something from The Learning Channel?
All these speciality channels eventually dumb down their programming to appeal to a broad audience of mouth-breathers until they're no different than any other channel, completely defeating the purpose of a speciality channel. I swear these channels are started with this long term goal specifically in mind.
