Just $10M Keeping "Red Neck Rocket Scientist" From Reaching Space
- Good day, I'd like to keep the red neck rocket scientist from reaching space.
- That would be ten million dollars, please.
could cause a shift from the ampere measure of current to a smaller, more precise unit of measurement for electrical current
This made no sense to me, and it turns out that what the article says is that one might want to formulate a new definition of the ampere. What do the editors do, really?
I told you we would find them!
For the record, I like Opera.
But, what about on the stage?
The test where you talk to a bot to see how long you can make it look like a conversation between humans. (You lose if it ends before the bot even has had a chance to say anything.)
On some phone systems (for example Luxembourg during the eighties), only the caller can hang up a line.
cpu6502, do you remember if you were in Luxembourg in the eighties when this happened?
Are you trying to make the argument that: socialist==left wing therefore everything with socialist in it's name must be left wing?
Absolutely not. My Shakespeare quote was there precisely to ensure you that I do not automatically believe that someone is what they say they are.
Wonderful reply! I like the symmetry of it and how you manage to bash both sides.
It's interesting that you mention left wing, because already when you said right wing, I wondered what you meant by it. I'm often fuzzy regarding what should be called one or the other (if the terms are at all relevant outside the French revolution), so I'm collecting samples of how other people use the words.

So, ITA Software makes an "airfare search and pricing" according to Wikipedia. Is there a big deal around this? Is that a problem that requires a sophisticated algorithm? I mean, how can you run a big company around this? If there is something technically interesting to it, it would be nice to know. (Also, it would be a motivation for bringing this story up on Slashdot at all.)
A friend of mine had to have surgery. His is only a semicolon now.
For us who aren't familiar with this visa system, whom did Palmer do a service by calling attention to the situation?
or ever flirted with someone using innuendo so skillfully that anyone observing mid-conversation would be unable to tell any kind of flirting was going on
Breaking one of the rules of grammar, say, by using while the way the Slashdot summary does, might be the means by which one conveys precisely that innuendo. If the speaker overall cares very little about the rules, I'm afraid no one would perceive their intentions as that subtle signal would be drowned in the flood of noise.
