If pilots were all that's needed to avoid air to air collusions, there would be none in the history. None of your theories would justify a pilot.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
Boohooo, cry me a river.
Reality check: No one uses Windows phones, they're crap. The only places use them are very low end users who get a discounted hardware crippled with a non-functioning OS - thanks to Microsoft selling those phones at a loss and nearly bankrupting Nokia in the process, and cheap enterprise users who suddenly realised giving iPhones and high-end Droids to their road warriors is getting a bit costly, esp. since there is no good Blackberry solution left - my last work Blackberry was a disgrace compared to the bottom of the barrel cheap Android device. No one gives a shit about Windows phone's (lack of) functionality.
Seriously? Occassionaly I use that turd at work (usually use Thunderbird), half the time it crashes, sorry, stops responding and then offers me to search for a resolution, losing my draft in the process. If you are writing an important mail, it must be avoided.
There is trolling and there is trolling and this is a good case of that.
if GNOME is a PR front for Red Hat, wow, it's failed miserably, what you spew out above is verified bullshit.
I use a trackball with KDE, you insensitive clod!
If he seriously believed his $DEITY, then he could pray to his $DEITY to reveal him the information directly instead of a FOI request. Surely his $DEITY is all-seeing, all-knowing kind?
Nothing to do with this. White men running NASA, white men running the Air Force, white men running the show could not and would not have a woman beat them to space. End of story. It's pure discrimination. It was widely known that physiologically and psychologically a woman is better suited for space flights. It was just ignored. Just like the claim "they can't fly", in WWII many women pilots proved that they could do the work as well, if not better, than their male colleagues who were busy with things "more important".
Don't forget that the same was true for black and hispanic astronauts. First black astronaut? 1983. First woman astronaut? 1983. First hispanic astronaut? 1980 (Cuba on Soviet flight), 1991 (first American born hispanic astronaut), 1993 (first American born hispanic woman astronaut).
It's all about white men.
That's a very good response time, 13 months. If it hasn't brought everything down, it's safe to ignore the issue after so much time, right? At least that's how Microsoft operates...
Apart from the horrible productivity, even less features and functionality and finally, incredibly low reliability, yes, I had no real issues with it.
Because ice is not expanding in Antarctica. It's flowing off the continent into the sea at faster and faster rates.
For example, see: http://www.iflscience.com/envi...
Arctic sea is different, is is a sea. The ice level there is completely proportional to the amount of water that freezes.
to spread around...
What the heck? Being against the scientific method? The reason it's called science is because it's based on the scientific method?
Ignoring God? What god? When religious people can bring a testable hypothesis about god, only then we can pay attention.
Magic? What magic? Everything in Science can be traced back to its origins with proof. If we don't have it yet, no hand waving, no excuses but the honest answer: We don't know, we're working on it.
Assigned a macro to this reply, haven't you? Clever boy, want a medal?
Don't forget, we don't hear what the techies are talking about. What we're hearing is what the techies told to the PR guy distilled down to a journo, being summarized in The Register (!) and some other soft-tech sites, finally an inaccurate summary on the frontpage of Slashdot.
I wouldn't be surprised if it were just a "fsck.ext4 -cc" (I know it's not an ext4, it was't even released when Opportunity soft-crashed and bounced around on Mars nor it runs Linux).
Hah, I almost remembered that one, good old Seagate controllers. I had the 800 but not the rest.
Hah, I remember running the DOS debugger, poking into a certain address in the memory to access the MFM BIOS, then you could do a low level format where you could enter the sectors to mark as bad. Those were the days...
