I have an uncle working with the electrical powerplants there. They're really working on it.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
it seems to be largely the social norm that the word is OK to use if you're black, and offensive if you're not. That's a bullshit standard, and it bothers me. Either it's OK for everyone, or it's OK for no one.
It is really a matter of context. It would not make sense to call someone that word when they could not call you that same word too. If you are content to be called that word in a group, then it would be ok.
You have rejected answers here that seem quite reasonable to me, so you have your own criteria. Let's spin it around; can you personally imagine or propose falsifiable hypotheses for global warming? You don't have to give an answer for that here; its just a personal exercise.
Here is another way of looking at this: you are on the side of modern science when it comes to Evolution and Astronomy. Now, what is it about Global Warming that is different than those other two? Is it that you do not really understand it yet?
Doesn't natural climate change occur slowly, over thousands of years? Are you aware that the recent climate change pattern for the 20th century is much different that the historical changes? I encourage you to study this deeper, for your own benefit. It takes some skill to interpret scientific data while filtering out noise...to see the forest from the trees.
Oh, and FWIW, Catastrophic Anthropogenic Global Warming *doesn't* qualify, unless of course some brave soul would like to make a clear falsifiable hypothesis statement for it
Rising temperatures are not falsifiable? Hmm..
Can your potential customers easily get in contact with your support staff before the sale? Once they get in contact with live human beings, the piracy rate should drop.
Anyway...this doesn't deserve to be on slashdot front page.
Slashdot is "New for Nerds", right? Can you think of anything more nerdish?
This may be a stupid question...
What kind of moron connects their factory-internal manufacturing systems to the Internet?
Those who run uranium enrichment machines. That's who.
Well, we can better analyze the samples they collect back on earth. Also, travelling the Mars will be hard on the astronauts, and the experience they gain would be invaluable for future missions.
The audience-driven video project, Terminal Time combines audience voting (by applause) with video, so it may count as prior art.
.. you should stick with typing text, as you have been. By translating those equations to text form, you may be helping yourself understand them better.
From the Centos.org home page:
Note: The CentOS Development team had a normal meeting today and Lance Davis was in attendance. In the meeting a majority of issues were resolved right away and a working agreement was reached with deadlines for any unresolved issues. There should be no impact to any CentOS users moving forward.
The CentOS project is now in control of the CentOS,org and CentOS.info domains and owns all trademarks, materials and artwork in the CentOS distributions.
We look forward to working with Lance quickly to complete all the agreed upon issues.
More information should follow very early next week.
in the Force, as if millions of voices suddenly cried out in terror and were suddenly silenced.
Sorry, couldn't resist.
The pious tend to view this world as a battlefield, not a vacation spot.
They are here to die fighting, much like the Spartans. Refusing treatment is seen as quitting; what kind of soldier lies down to die, who has a chance to take some of the enemy beforehand?
