i argued that it's a false equivalence because software quality is not based (entirely) on a single finish line.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
wtf, slashdot? "evidence"? i said "an estimate"!
i understand that you think you are using a metaphor (even if it is in fact a simile)
but either way it's false. in a race, you either finish or you don't. in software it's an on going process with (hopefully, but rarely) increasing quality and functionality.
small battles can and are won.
say you have 10,000,000,000 bugs in the system as a evidence.
researchers find and patch 1,000,000,000
is your system more or less likely to have an exploit found?
found more on the allSeen website:
"can communicate over various transport layers, such as Wi-Fi, power line or Ethernet"
"enable fundamental activities such as discovery of adjacent devices, pairing, message routing and security"
"onboarding to join the user’s network of connected devices; user notifications; a common control panel for creating rich user experiences; and audio streaming for simultaneous playback on multiple speakers."
FTFA: 'communicate "regardless of manufacturer or operating system and without the need for Internet access,"'
can anyone explain how AllJoyn differs from the TCP/IP stack?
you guys are cute. several fab companies are already well into their evaluation processes to produce fully patterned 10nm wafers with evaluation CPUs and mixed signal ckts. and all without EUV (*gasp*).
in triple patterning, the third color is typically to produce the notches and orthogonal lines.
it's the double patterning that is mostly for parallel lines.
just to add a bit to this. it's typically termed "epitaxial growth", refering to the deposition of a layer of material over another. "assembled" always puts pictures of little machines putting parts together in my head, when it's a chemical process entirely.
yes. this is how change happens. slavery, womens' rights, child labor laws, environmental laws. take that last one further, and we MIGHT be able to enable our existence for a while longer
a "session cookie" is literally a different type of cookie as sent from the server.
aka "transient cookies"
they are typically to follow you around that "session" on the website. not the session in the browser.
but yes, the browsers happen to trash them when you exit. but if you run out of cookie memory, they'll page them out or scrap the old ones entirely.
that should say "disqus"
so you have exactly the same usage as "the vast majority" of people?
not for sites that use 3rd party commenting systems, et al. discus
i'm not saying i like this implementation, but surely this firefox feature will break this. i see it all the time using cookie monster plugin
while this sounds like the recent, growing, rampant, ignorant islamo-phobia, i'm inclined to think it's a tongue-in-cheek proposed reaction to saudi's representatives stating that homosexuality and beer are offensive.
i too find religion offensive, counterproductive, and sometimes outright dangerous, and if governments continue to play such a large roll in handling gTLDs it's the religious gTLDs that should be disallowed (but not
Most of people who've put you into this mess are senators and regulators who've since bailed and retired on their multi-million-dollar golden industry jobs.
Get kickbacks, Profit. Insider Trade. Profit. Allow derivative trading with no regulations. More profits. Allow unlimited campaign contributions from corporations. More profits. Repeat. Repeat. Repeat...
What? People are no longer buying the mass-produced junk we're importing from the Tea Party? Sorry about that. Guess it's time for me to bail...
there, i fixed it for you...
you have no idea what you are talking about.
