Rewnewable power as it stands right now, is driving the price up on electricity so fast, people are now making the choice between that and food. If you want to help the world, push for nuclear power. While pushing for other technologies that would allow directed microwave energy from space.
Pft. Real men use their vic-20's, without the ram expander cartridge.
We've had that for years already, and no, its not all that useful in computer chips. You need very specific directed communications almost exclusively except for the clock pulse.
Sure, it's not useful in modern chips however. Following the theories on optical chips however, you don't need it to be directed when banks are set projected.
Meh why be shocked at this behavior from the left? Unless it's attacking the US for being the US like the liberals did when they were in power it's pretty much all the same. And while I'm not super impressed with everything Harper has done, the diversification that we've gotten under him as well as trade deals far outstrips what the previous governments did in the past. When they were content for Canada to be a one-trick-pony only selling our goods south.
What, exactly, is the benefit of building a chip whose internal connections are basically all optoisolators?
Besides omnidirectional communication without the need for direct pathways. Oh...not much.
AFAIK it was a Soviet Union planning disaster which was not targeted specifically at the Ukraine.
No, it was the Soviet Union rolling in and taking *everything* and it didn't happen just once, but at least three times. My mother's side of the family is from the Ukraine, and her father spent 25 years in a gulag because he refused to turn over everything. He was one of the lucky ones, their neighbor was simply shot.
Encrypt the phone, and set a numeric PIN of 6 or more.
Done and done.
Funny you suggest that, but as a trial a few years back on my android smart phone I did just what you suggested. I was easily able to bypass it by going into the developer menu and turning it off after doing a factory reset.
Hey whatja got against us Canadians eh? Just because we export this awesome stuff called winter, and you've been drowning in it this year isn't our fault!
Really, in quite a few places where we grow things in the desert(and they're near oceans), nothing is stopping desalinization plants and wave generators to power them. Except perhaps the will do to it(in some cases nimby), and in other cases political/regional instability.
As for farms being small in the north east and shorter growing seasons? We usually get in at least 2 rounds of crops in the summer, especially if winter wheat is planted. Fallowing properly also helps make sure that you can get two per-season in. And even in the north east, most of those natural resources are man-made and rely on winter snowfall or winter rains depending on how mild the weather is.
Quick, ban oceans. It worked for extra large sodas right?
Did some precious perfect snowflake get his wittle feelers hurt? Maybe it's time to grow up. Has the new generation somehow lost the natural skepticism towards anonymous rumors? Somehow I doubt it.
Yes. And they've been teaching kids in the last 15-ish years that "thin skinned" is the only way to be. Don't stand up to bullies, don't defend yourself, let the authorities handle it for you. Oh and of course if you do stand up to defend yourself, it's all your fault automatically no matter what. Because "zero tolerance."
The CEO quoted in the article has a bug up his ass about one small area of R&D and is making idiotic excuses for why it should be eliminated.
What's funny is that the CEO says "they're too expensive for the masses" and I can easily look back to the time of: PC's/CDROM/CDplayer/VHS/Reel-to-Reel/Refrigerator and the automobile where CEO's said the same thing, and within 20 years they were so common that it looked like they grew out of the dirt.
Actually, even that isn't true. I live in China where legit software is hard to come by.
So you're complaining about buying non-legit software, and all the rest. You could have bought it like most people did from MS, hell you could have bought it dirt cheap for your region directly from MS. If MS got one thing right, it was charging $5(USD) for a copy in China/India/Pakistan when they had the "upgrade" offer over a year ago.
There's a difference between Win8.1 and 8.1 pack 1, anyone with Win8 can get 8.1 for free.
Not to mention in the wilderness
Well I shouldn't have had to mention that one, but I suppose it's good to include it. I was recently out in Alberta(far north), and I don't have a FAC, but I can use a variety of bows legally. So for those that don't have their FAC, you'll see them carrying all sorts of things like that "just in case."
