When I was 15, we had to choose a book to study and read a report on it in front of the class. I chose Animal Farm. The teacher criticized me for "still reading children's books at your age", and the whole class laughed at me. I failed English at that school, but got an 'A' when I re-sat at a different school a year later.
Banned by several libraries due to crudity.
No, it's not banned, and neither are 1984, Fahrenheit 451, or any of the others in the poll. They were banned at some point - presumably - although I'm not sure if TKAMB was.
...rankly, the FOSS community needs to make a choice - if they want the year of Linux on the desktop to stop being a joke and start being a reality...
That's a big "if". A lot of Linux developers really never have cared about desktops. "The year of Linux on the desktop" has always been a media thing.
My dad and I wrote a BASIC interpreter for the IBM PC in the '80s called BBasic, based on the Acorn BBC Micro dialect. BBC BASIC had an "EVAL" function, where it took a string and interpreted it as an expression. I persuaded dad that we should expand this functionality to an EXEC statement, that would take a string and interpret it as BASIC commands. If you put a line number at the start of the string, it would insert the code in the string into the program that was running - so you could have self-modifying BASIC code. There was one restriction, that if any of the points in the call stack were prior to the inserted statement, then it would fall over in a very untidy heap.
It actually turned out to be pretty useful, the one used that I can remember was to store persistent data within the program itself, and you could save a program as an executable that included a runtime interpreter.
Where did you get the password list from?
I'm guessing that if this really is a list of Google accounts and passwords, that they got it from somewhere other than Google. As far as I know, Google doesn't store passwords, they store salted hashes of passwords.
It's worse than that, it's exactly 100 years old today.
According to The Onion, 80% of our nation's grandchildren are above average.
Intelligent people can be immature. In fact, all intelligent people were immature at some stage.
Truncated icosahedron, maybe?
Consider the continuum as it extends over time and space. Everything is and/or was a continuum, but occasionally holes and tears in the continuum occur that cause the appearance of hard distinctions between species.
Drake's Equation hasn't predicted anything, because no-one knows what the vaues of any of the variables are.
The unit of energy is fff, the energy required to accelerate one firkin by one furlong-per-fortnight.
