We can build lasers that can hit supersonic missiles moving erratically at 10 km from an aircraft, I think hitting a slow moving projectile from less then 100m is the least of this projects worries.
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).
Unlikely, clouds of interstellar dust several light years across tend to get noticed, especially if they're that close.
So if I compared your C code from now to your C code from the week after you first learned how to program C, they would look the same? If so god have mercy on your employer.
Yeah, and we all have functioning copies of windows too. How many hours did you spend hunting down dubious activation hacks to get yours working? How long did they last before you had to do it again?
I believe the point he's trying to make is that anonymity/security on the internet, especially in a hostile country, is a very hard thing to accomplish and is best left to people who now what they are doing. By all means grandma can send and receive emails about recipes and photos of grandkids to her hearts content and nobody will break down her door for it HTTPS or not, but when grandma starts planning a revolution she better not be assuming that she'll be safe and secure on the internet and if she can't assure herself of that then maybe she shouldn't be risking her life.
There isn't much, but there is still the occasional molecule bumping around( Even between galaxies the density ranges between 1 atom per cubic centimeter to 1 atom per cubic meter), add solar winds, the moon, slight variations in gravitational pull because the earth is unfortunately not a perfect sphere of uniform density, let's through in the galactic core for good measure since hey gravity goes to infinity. Oh and were not perfect at putting satellites into orbit so they may slowly drift into each other because one may be a 1' higher then the other and were left with a need to occasionally bump them around here and there.
Sounds like one of those sentences is backwards.
A two story drop is completely survivable (so you shouldn't fear it).
Falling from the CN tower is sure to kill you.
Sounds like you have a fear of landing at survivable but painful speeds.
Protip: If falling at terminal velocity be sure to orient yourself with your head facing down so as to ensure that your last conscious though wont be feeling your femur going through your lungs.
So am I, in C '==' is used to compare two different objects it does not actually define either of them, '=' on the other hand does.
Sorry to be outrageously pedantic but this has always bugged me, '==' represent a query not a statement it's like saying 'is a chamber filled with debris equal to no chamber at all' vs. using '=' which would be 'a chamber filled with debris is equal to no chamber'.
As for the actual substance of your post I would assume that it will be much easier to empty out a chamber filled with crap rather then construct a chamber from scratch. The only argument I can see is if it's actually worthwhile to use a subterranean base, perhaps prefab buildings on the surface is the way to go.
Not to deny the effectiveness of that technique but I had a collapsed lung a year ago and it showed up on X-Ray without and He3, granted it was rather faint but I guess it all depends on what you're looking for.
Fine you pedantic cock, Humans > (The set of all animals excluding humans)
Bet you it wont, Honeycomb is still going to have the Dalvik VM and will still run all the old Android apps.
Essentially, yes. The Google engineers believe the reporting is happening within IE Suggested Sites or the Bing Toolbar, both of which EULAs say that they report back to Microsoft.
You're doing some freaky ass computing if all the transistors in your CPU are active at the same time.
Doesn't need to be a steady beam, with a powerful laser it just takes a fraction of a second to dazzle a pilot and force him to abort a landing. I work at an airport and have flown in the cockpit enough times to tell you that landings are sketchy enough without some jackass on the ground trying to distract you. Fortunately the things are run in a modern cockpit makes switching command and aborting landing a fairly simple task, nevertheless it's just a matter of time before a pilot gets a laser in the eye twitches his hand 50' off the ground and noses the bastard right into the dirt.
