I was thinking the reverse -- you could program it to give a normal user an experience similar to one an autistic person experiences by default. This might help them understand, and possibly even accommodate, the sufferers.
"Chris Hadfield, an astronaut currently on the ISS"
Chris Hadfield is not just an astronaut on the ISS. He's the Commander of the ISS right now. Oh and he's Canadian.
So how quickly did the ISS apologize for being in the way of the speeding debris?
The odds of finding life within (not ON) Europa are exactly the same as they were before. The conditions either are or are not conducive to life, whether we were aware of them or not. That life either does or does not exist, whether we were aware of it or not. (The place could be habitable, but uninhabited, so the two statements are not the same.)
What has changed is our belief of just what those odds ARE. The residents of Europa, should they exist, are completely unaffected by this news... at least until we decide to drop in on them.
I don't want them to lie about anything. I don't even particularly want to drive them out of business. I just don't want some fraction of MY money used to promote something I personally oppose. I already do enough of that with taxes, though I feel somewhat better knowing that EVERYONE is supporting SOMETHING they don't believe in with their taxes.
Was it wrong for people to boycott Chick-fil-A over their disagreement with his views? How about Papa John's? Is it wrong that I refuse to contribute to Scientology, even indirectly, by knowingly doing business with their members and businesses? (For example, refusing to buy Pulp Fiction as a gift for someone even though it is what they specifically requested.)
There is nothing wrong with saying "I disagree with you and do not wish to have MY money (and tacit approval) used to further causes I disagree with".
So did I and, sadly, it made sense.
"I'm contributing $Y to the political party I support."
"Oh yeah? Well, I support the opposite political party so I'm going to contribute $X where X > Y!"
What about those of us that really want to make a difference but don't have much X to "direct"?
You either get the support of those who have more "speech" money (individually or in aggregate), or you get ignored.
Owning both an Atom-based Aspire One and an E-350 Aspire, I'd hardly call them "equivalent". Aside from the not-so-hot 1.6 GHz clock speed, the two have almost nothing in common. The Atom has Hyperthreading, the E-350 has two physical cores. The Atom relies on Intel's graphics, the E-350 has an integrated GPU that has NEVER been the bottleneck for anything I want to run. The Aspire One is limited to 2 GB of RAM (and in this implementation only takes 1.5), the E-350 machine currently has 8 GB installed.
I wouldn't use the E-350 to encode video, or even large amounts of audio, that's why I have a 6-core desktop machine. Sometimes Minecraft gets choppy on the E-350 (CPU-bound, not GPU). The screen on the Aspire is rather disappointing, it's much like the Aspire One -- glossy, 16- or 18-bit, and of insufficient resolution for its size. But that has ZERO to do with the choice of CPU, the i3 version has the same disappointing screen and costs almost $100 more.
I'm not knocking your assessment of the Atom, far from it. But to call it and the E-350 "equivalent" is like saying a Yugo and a Honda Civic are "equivalent".
I wasn't too keen on the idea either, until Leonard Nimoy approved. After all, he was the prototype Vulcan, and with his new career in erotic photography, he's quite well qualified to be naming moons...
Shouldn't Leonard Nimoy be the one to propose which object gets named Vulcan? I mean sure he's retired from acting and now spends his time as an erotic photographer, but that makes him EVEN MORE qualified to be naming moons.
Keytop labels are a pretty simple do-it-yourself affair if so inclined, Print to Avery labels, then laminate them in clear packing tape. You'll have to cut them out with scissors, but they'll last for years. I've had my Aspire One remapped this way for four years now.
Thing is, he was playing electronic percussion when he had two arms. So for him at least, it wasn't a big change in sound to move the triggers from his left hand to his left foot.
I have twin 2048 x 1152, 23" monitors (Samsung 2343BWX). The left one has a rotating base and it currently is flipped to Portrait, while the other has only the cheap base it came with.
These are awesome monitors for working and playing games. However, they quickly pick up color and shade aberrations if I get even a little bit off axis, which makes them unsuitable for movies, and thoroughly awful for giving a presentation. For either of these purposes, the 37" TV makes a lot more sense though it is only 1366x768. It has virtually no loss of visibility until rather extreme angles are involved, like being 75 degrees off-axis. It also does well for games, provided it is driven at its native resolution so there is no processing lag from scaling the image.
Minecraft is not just LEGO, it's also a train set and a 200-in-1 electronics kit from Radio Shack. Oh, and creepers.
It was alt.binaries.pictures.grotesque, and believe it or not we did strive for accuracy -- even that time Rusty posted the Di Death Pics hoax. Once the media got hold of that she tried to 'fess up that it was a fake but nobody was listening.
