Clearly, the current 3-year cycle makes no sense.
At the same time, people LIKE tournaments. If you want to be the true world champion, why not have regionals, as the author suggests -- but limit them to residents and let them be "open" (single elimination in round 1). We have brackets in other sports. This would allow people to compete regardless of wealth.
Each "continental champion" (think "North American Champion" or even "East Asian Champion") could face off in a tournament with the other regionals. This would let each population cheer for its hometown star from New York to New Dehli. Sure, maybe the two "best" don't face off in the "World Championship" but it also allows underdogs to win more easily and makes it more competitive.
Or we could just crown Deep Blue every year.
Flying into Reno just doesn't seem like an option since I can't bring the 3 5-gallon containers I feel I need for the duration of the event
Gerlach may be dead, but Reno has plenty of stores. There's an unwritten rules that if you're flying in, your group stops at the grocery store -- which is filled with other awesome Burners. They're generally pretty easy to identify, but not as easy to identify as the playa-dust encrusted passengers on the flight back. As far as other supplies, many Burners pool their resources and rent a shipping container, at least in NYC and ATX.
Driving is a waste, unless you live close, as some of us have jobs and would rather spend Monday and Tuesday on the playa rather than commuting. YMMV.
And happy burn!;)
There's an unlimited supply, they don't require oxygen or food, and they love going to the mun!

You are deluded, there is nothing sociopathic about killing and preparing an animal's flesh for a meal....Eating one is no more evil or wrong than eating the other.
Hannibal Lecter was saying the same thing over dinner at his house. Not quite sure what he meant by it...
What you are missing here is that these files this guy is sharing are essentially just descriptions of shapes and therefore typically would be considered speech. The files then let you make nuclear weapons (though really poor quality ones). He is sharing information though, not nuclear weapons, which is why this has been transmuted from a second amendment issue to a first amendment one.
Arms=small arms and nuclear arms. Free speech famously has limits (falsely yelling "fire" in a crowded theater) so where do we draw the line here?
How many people here have discovered dead civil rights activists riddled with bullets? Hands? Yes Dianne?
I think I'd be a bit traumatized too and probably not like anything with guns in it -- including games.
While I disagree with this specific method, I'm glad Feinstein is trying to address the problem of gun violence with a solution other than "more guns, yehaw!". The GOP seems to think there is no problem that cannot be solved through a combination of tax cuts, guns, and Jesus.
If we make a video game about him, is it art?
(Disclaimer: I like the guy, I just have a sense of black humor. And he's had numerous long-winded arguments why video games aren't art -- I don't concur.)
Sorry, dork, your tinfoil hat tea party sites may swallow your bullshit, but there are a few here at slashdot who are a little better educated.
You may want to consider adding "culture" to your education. There's a wonderful little film making fun of these tin-foil hats called "Dr. Strangelove" which is arguably the most famous black comedic film of all-time. Type "communism fluoride" into Google and watch General Ripper give a lecture about it. It's supposed to be funny, but you haven't seen the film, so you don't get the joke.
I'm guessing by "music" you mean stuff with lyrics -- hence your comment about human voices. I have ADHD too and here's my advice.
My personal favorite for getting work done is Rodrigo y Gabriela's first album, but if you're not into that sort of thing, there's also classical, post-punk (Godspeed/Turtles), ambient (Brian Eno), orchestral video game music (Nobuo Uematsu) etc etc. If music fails, white noise may work but has the issue of your brain wanting to pay more attention to the noise you're trying to block out since what you're listening to is boring. A friend of mine also with ADHD loved to listen to fast-paced Celtic music when reading during college.
There's also noise-cancelling headphones.
Is it any surprise that Hollywood gets UI wrong in favor of "looking good" when we have:
* Bad physics (don't even get me started on the sound explosions make in space)
* Bad understanding of current technology (every hacking movie ever -- with the very notable exception of The Social Network)
* Bad history (based on a true story!)
Hollywood fundamentally wants to make something that "looks pretty" and to hell with practical applications -- because that pretty picture is ultimately what is being delivered to you. In other news, I'm guessing the food in movies doesn't taste as good as it looks either -- but I sympathize with that are set with the general public and those whose job it is to fulfill them.
Netcraft confirms it.
So I work at a Fairly Large Company (TM) and we recently downgraded from SVN to TFS. For years, I used the Git-SVN bridge which worked quite well.
The TFS/Git project, I'm sorry to say, so far DOA for an enterprise user like me. Git-SVN would take a many hours to migrate a large repository...but it worked. MS's Git integration has fallen far short. While checking out shallow copies works, deep copies crash on checkout (it runs out of memory, which really shouldn't happen). Even trying to get the latest version (i.e. git rebase in TFS parlance), it manages to flood my 16 GB system and die down in authentication.
I'd be curious as to what experience others have had with it in The Real World, rather than the chair-throwing annuls of MS HQ.
Or you could use the PIMPL design approach if you really want to "hide" things as seen here.
Basically, create a pointer to another object and then put the actual private data there. And then, you have the added advantage that you don't have to compile every that includes the
It's a bit of indirection, sure, but that's why C++ is so great: some of the stupidest things to do are easy (say calling a destructor explicitly), and the proper things to do are hard (oh, like trying to convert a number to a string. Frameworks make this easier, but this hasn't stopped every single large project I've ever seen from creating their own string class sometime in the distant past, which we keep using.)
So what's the difference between a naked guy at a tragic funeral and a WBC member?
Only one of them gets hauled away for public indecency. We should be able to find a middle ground here.
