Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
There are also plenty of people asking for free beer and a pony, but some of them just read the article instead.
"Until NVIDIA finally delivers these signed firmware blobs (they're not even trying to get the source to the firmware, just the signed binary blobs) to Nouveau developers, the GeForce GTX 900 open-source support is going to be really problematic and basically non-existent."
Only people can hack it?
A real voting machine should be hackable by a chimpanzee.
That's funny. They had no trouble ignoring these problems before last September, which is when they started requiring signed firmware images.
Nobody is asking for source code or intellectual property rights related to firmware, all they need is the single signed blob of otherwise unreadable code which the new GM20x cards require before doing anything more complicated than simple mode switching. The kind of thing that nVidia said they would provide last year, but haven't.
... unless you're in Japan, then 78% is abject failure and cause for banishment from the family.
That's okay. Just claim that you got the other 12% and pretend that nothing is wrong. It can't possibly fail.
I think in this situation it is assumed that you would have a nominated person per office to do the cloning, swapping and carrying in their car.
Just remember to have another nominated person check the clones every now and then, because the first person has no idea why that little red lamp turned on and has been driving around with a blank disk for the past six months.
you can get Secret of Monkey Island from Good Old Games. It's a remake (still kinda old even so), but very faithful.
You may not be able to see "A Midsummer Night's Dream" performed in the Globe Theatre by the Lord Chamberlain's Men, but you can watch "Get Over It" on Netflix. It's practically the same thing.
The "Dark Ages" are called that because of the lack of historical records from that time.
Really. It has nothing to do with how complicated their games were.
Since so much of modern culture -- not just video games but also books, music and movies -- is locked into digital formats which prioritize new sales over preservation of the original, future historians may well look at the current era in the same way.
The ESA is trying to ensure that we continue to live in a Digital Dark Age.
Like the shake guarding his well in the arabian desert, you can't have. Unless you ~PAY~!
