Yes, laser process is happening in laser diodes. The electrical engineers are annoyed at your astounding ignorance of the subject
the light at each of three frequencies (actually a distribution around a peak for real world lasers) will be coherent. There is also amplification of light by stimulated emission happening. So the device is indeed a laser and you armchair amateurs should just be quiet
because such an accident has actually happened...never
you might get stomped by a hippo that escaped from your local zoo, why don't you worry about that instead.
I fricking HATED Windows 8/8.1 with a fiery passion but I hate to say it but...it WAS better than 10, why? Have you LOOKED at the fricking EULA for Windows 10? The datamining is fricking insane, it makes Google look like fricking privacy lovers by comparison!
I knew when they said it was "free" there would have to be a catch, but I figured it'd be another ham handed attempt to push Windows other products but daaayyum, if you don't spend the first hour removing apps and turning shit off you might as well just send all your data straight to fricking MSFT!
Just because people do it and have done something does not mean it is natural to do.
Starving to death or dropping dead from polio is totally natural. We try not to do those things, despite the ravings of idiots like you.
The mistake is considering *grains* food at all.
Oh, for fuck's sake.
I LIKE bread, pasta, corn flakes and donuts, you raving moron.
paid shills, GMO fanbois, rose-colored-glasses wearers,
While its true that SJWs pretty much ruin everything they touch in the case of Patreon there are just as many using it for good things. For example there are several reviewers of niche movies/TV/Music where you can "buy" an episode and choose the topic of that episode (as long as it falls into the niche) and dedicate it to someone, E.G. Todd In The Shadows has a show called "One Hit Wonderland" where you can choose any one hit band from the past 40 years if you wish to buy an episode. I have seen similar things done with reviews of games like World of Planes/Tanks/Warships where the buyer can choose which vehicle is under review next. Some of these reviewers also sell game time, where the person buying can be in the next review by joining up with the reviewer in game.
In these "works for hire" I see no issue as everybody gets the content for free, the one paying the money simply gets to choose the topic and be mentioned or appear in the video. Watching a few of these other than the person being mentioned in the front you'd be hard pressed to tell this from any of their other content so if it helps them continue to make entertaining videos we can all watch for free? I say go for it, especially when you can use it to help those that could really use it, like Chuck at SFDebris whose wife has a serious mental illness which requires him to be a stay at home dad.
The problem with the GPL is the ONLY way to actually make enough money to keep your doors open (and feel free to try to prove me wrong with a single example, you can't) is through the "blessed trinity" which is 1.- Sell hardware, 2.- Sell support or services, and 3.-E-Begging.
So what is wrong with that? Simple the vast majority of software doesn't fall into those niches and thus there will never be a GPL equivalent. For a perfect example just look at how ID has given some of the most powerful game engines ever made yet you can't name a single player GPL game with the quality of Far Cry 1 or Bioshock, which are over a decade old, reason? Games don't fall into the blessed trinity so all you get are a billion piss poor Q3 Arena ripoffs because those are so simple any kid can whip one off in a couple months. This is why despite 20 years the best answer to Photoshop is the Gimp, which isn't anywhere near the same league, why you have no GPL small business software that comes even close to Quickbooks despite it being out there for ages, they simply do not fall under the trinity and so will never get made.
This is the problem with rigid dogma, it frequently ignores reality and becomes the classic "is ought" problem, saying their "ought" to be GPL for all forms of software while ignoring reality which "is" that someone devoting their full time to a software project needs to be able to eat and have a home. If you simply removed the "free to redistribute" clause this problem would not exist, after all we have seen that this works in the world of video games where many games let you modify the games and distribute those modifications (and some like ID let you have the code) but you cannot distribute the game itself, allowing the developers to get paid for their labor and make more games.
Of course I'm sure I will get nothing but hate for daring to say programmers should be able to make a living (and I notice RMS never says anybody else should give their work away for free, I bet he has no qualms with paying his doctor for the years of hard work he put in learning his craft while ignoring programmers often spend as many years learning theirs) but when you look at the GPL? It simply insures that many forms of software will simply never come to be, the license is too narrow to allow one to make a living unless you can do so through the trinity.
Well, you totally convinced me. I had no idea that without a union, my despotic employers would suddenly remove the toilets from my workplace. So, do I just put the money in a brown bag and give it to Guido every week?
If they pay the salary that we agreed to, then they're not ripping me off.
Let's get back to Unions, worker solidarity and high minimum wages.
Fuck you. I don't need gangsters taking another slice of my paycheck.
a two year old could sit with a plastic steering wheel going "br-br-br-br-br-br", but that doesn't mean they're driving a car down the road
You keep milking that cheesy cow fetish whey too much.
Damned right it is. He took an oath, and he fulfilled it, while everybody else at the NSA violated it.
