...so, what are the chances of being killed by low or bad terror attack preparedness? Because it's probably lower than being killed in a terror attack?
"terror attack preparedness" - what is this?
Being able to make some tea?
Keeping common sense after a bomb went off a few feet away?
How much is the current zigbee and zwave devices using?
TCP is a bother in itself - UDP and UDP-based protocols are much easier, since they don't require a buffer for the transport stream, you can just reuse the packet space to answer on so you only need one MTU of space (1.5k). TCP needs the buffer for resending, and to buffer data before sending. Much hungrier... but still, where 32kB is well enough.
If anything, I would like devices that comes with a nice amount of non-volatile RAM for logging and backup purposes. (Where nice amount would be something like 128k. I'm fine with that. I currently have an EEPROM with about 64 bytes for logging. I have to be a little bit too creative then...)
X is a mess of a protocol though. Too many extensions error.
Now slashdot is doing it again.
If you understand programming, you can pick up most of that within a few weeks. If a senior dev gets mad at you during those weeks, look for another job.
If you don't understand programming and know all that stuff, there's no way you will learn the libraries and software that specific company uses within a few weeks and a senior developer will get furious.
C++ is just another language. It's in no way harder than C, interlisp or Python.
Standard libraries are just some libraries. All languages have those.
I regularly work with devices having 32*K*B or RAM. That talks TCP/IP. (And much smaller than that, but they do very limited amount of networking, like CAN.)
And I remember running Linux on devices with a lot less than 32MB...
What's the challenge with 32MB? And how is that extreme in any way?
Very informative. Thanks.
I block ads because of three main reasons:
1. I don't like being tracked by a third party
2. I don't like visually annoying ads (blinking, moving, changing, etc) - I can't read a page if it feels like I'm in Shinjuku or Las Vegas.
3. Ads are often destructive, either they popup (in the page, or in a new window/tab) or they contain trojans or worms
Since I block lots of trackers, already there most ads vanish. Domains that serve any of the catagery 2 or 3 are also blocked - actually all third parties are blocked if they are not needed for the page. (RequestPolicy. It's a bit of work and why the can't people make pages without dozens of third parties anymore?)
Pages that don't have third party ads are not blocked in any way.
Pro tip if you want your ads to be viewed:
1. serve them on the same domain
2. don't animate them (maybe don't even use images)
3. don't make them have any sort of script
I for instance see google ad-words. I just can't click on them because it leads to a blocked tracker domain...
I was trying to figure out what cars they had that can be charged. Turns out it was the other way around, the car will charge your cellphone.
What was wrong with the QI standard?
Chuck Norris deployment program,
...you have so many funny units to pick from over there.
I'd say no, but we might be getting better at noticing?
I'd guess democracy works as long as education levels are high enough and the democracy isn't diluted.
Dictatorship seems to work as well as long as education levels are high enough and corruption is avoided.
It's a good philosophical discussion where the limit is of when dictatorships are more democratic than democracies.
I really, really like Singapore. They are doing pretty much everything right, including having the smartest and most educated leaders in the world, by far.
I am a bit confused by their status as non-democracy though.
I will switch to the next browser that's fast and supports tree-style tabs to the left of the window. (No, not in a separate window.) (And Firefox isn't fast.)
