We've got trouble in River City with a capital 'T' that rhymes with 'B' and stands for 'Bittorrent!"

I want Bill Cosby's gocart sounds.
Have to wonder if schematics exist for computers nowadays...
If they do, where are they? Somewhere in Asia?
Finally, does anyone actually comprehend them? (Ever wonder why so many computers have unstable hardware?)
I wasn't making excuses for them. So why take out your TSA frustration on me?
I have traveled thru 19 countries and dealt with strict customs. China, Egypt, Israel, Japan, more. Hand checks, etc.
I too have been harassed by TSA. (I was driving. Rude comments. Everything opened and left scattered on the back seat. Laptop and car registration dumped on the floorboard. Had to find my passport. To say I was peeved is an understatement.) The airport TSA are relatively polite.
In my job, I always had too many things for carry on anyway. (Toolbox, spare parts, clothing, etc.)
Why am I modded Flamebait?
Why is whining about the TSA informative, but unemotionally pointing out an obvious way to minimize TSA hassle considered flamebait?
P.S. I usually found the motels had shampoo, so I didn't need to carry it anyway.
In my road warrior job, I usually put my shampoo, toiletry and and tools in my checked luggage. Didn't really want to carry them anyway.
Advantages of flash...
Single chip solution - the microcontroller has flash built into it. The chip makers are using flash for microcontrollers because they only need to design one set of masks. FWIW, a chip rep once told me that the combination of voltage and reduced feature size means the older technologies wont work.
The payouts are considered a business loss. Money received from a lawsuit is tax free (because it is considered compensation for money already owed.)
Company A sues itself for $1 million to be paid out $50,000/year for 20 years. Each year, it deducts a $50,000 payout. Each year, it gets $50,000 tax free.
I want SW-patents to go the way of the dodo as much as the next
One could argue that oil paintings are a collection of pigments that filter and reflect various wavelengths of light. The art is in the selection and arrangement of the pigments. Or that music is a sequence of tones. But some sequences sound better than others.
Programming is not pure science, it is a mix of science and art, like architecture.
(I also agree that something is terribly flawed with the software patent system.)
the surrounding air acts as the cathode
Hello, Tech Support?
I'm installing this new battery...
The (-) wire is soldered to the anode.
How do you solder the (+) wire to the cathode?
First an O-ring. Next, a piece of foam. Now, a knob.
Why is it that such little things cause so much shuttle damage?
