These early personal computers weren't much more than toys. You could play pong or simple shooting games, maybe do some word processing. And these toys were marketed almost entirely to men and boys.
Wow, not only is this wrong, it's stupid. Home computers were aimed at FAMILIES, especially Commodores. Apples were ubiquitous in education, and I don't remember girls being asked to leave the room while the boys hacked on BASIC and LOGO. Were there male-oriented ads? Yes, but I don't remember any unless you count Shatner's-- and that would be only if you were some ironic sexist who thought Star Trek wasn't for girls. The author provides a biased sample by digging up two that happened to feature boys in them-- and they still have girls present. If I felt like slogging on YouTube for an hour, I could probably find ten that had girls and women prominently involved.
"(of course I realize you still don't believe I never vote for him)" I take everyone at face value with regard to who they say they vote for, or not.
You're actually carrying the persecution complex your heard about on FOX.
Who watches that noise? I take in HGTV and a little NBC News 4. For a total of 1-2 hours/week.
The light bulb has to want to change...
In two weeks, the fatal flaw of majority rule will once again show its monstrous face (with you and d_r, and various others here being perfect representatives)
Oh! The light bulb! Of course! If only we could just incentivize that godforsaken light bulb!
If only the light bulb could defeat that majority rule bugbear!
Does the light bulb have to break itself and stab the majority rule bugbear in some critically vulnerable area, so that the bugbear bleeds to death? Or is the bugbear just light sensitive, and the proper wavelength from the light bulb will make it whither?
tl;dr: We're all doing what we can. How about something substantive, and a little less mumbo-jumbo?
Unions, especially public sector unions, amount to an enabler for the new Progressive aristocracy.
What to do? Vote the bums out, say I.
If they didn't feel safe doing it, they would stop instead.
And if by "every conceivable edge case" you meant "every intersection in every city", then yes I am bringing those up in a discussion about safety. What were you doing?
It's really sad to see Google turning inwards like this. What happened to working towards open standards for such things?
Too true. Couldn't they have used an open standard like FIDO's U2F instead of using proprietary technology like...
Wait, what was your objection again?
In the UK they draw rulers on the road and the camera takes two pictures of you, one second apart.
Who's [sic] second are they using?
Interestingly enough it's a secondde or "short second" which is equal to 0.94 Imperial seconds.
Well... while I'm not one for hate and vitriol like most of the politically oriented people out there (it seems), I sit back and watch and: 1) I agree with the other response that neither of the two major parties actually represent a majority of anybody but politicians and businesses, and 2) I thought the tea party was an interesting idea until they became right wing on steroids. I thought they were interesting until they started campaigning against abortion, and inviting people like Sarah Pailin to speak at events. Again... I don't run out and start hating on either abortion or anti-abortion activists, I know they both have their opinions and beliefs, but I think it should largely stay out of politics at this point, and it's not going to change any time soon - both parties use it to rile up their bases, though.
So no hate against the Tea Party, but they are hardly a big difference between them and republicans - more like republicans demanding what the party SAYS they represent as opposed to how republican candidates actually act when they get into office. The GOP just needs some house cleaning, IMO.
People SAY they want freedom and liberty, but neither major party offers it. There's really only one out there that does (besides complete anarchists), and everybody thinks they're "crazy" because they want freedom and liberty, which, OMG, requires people to take back some responsibility for themselves.
Please follow at a safe distance, and go back to drivers training.
Never! It's in the Constitution that I can drive as fast as I like and everybody else has to get out of the way.
Why do you hate America?
You don't increase time on the yellow.... you let the yellow turn red on the same timer, but you leave both directions red for 2 seconds just to ensure...
...that drivers will feel safe going through the intersection after the light turns red.
It's a nice idea, but the universe will always build a better idiot.
