Woah... Byuu's a slashdotter too! You're my hero. Someday, I'll make an ARM-optimized SNES emulator and you'll be my inspiration.
Americans aren't stupid. If we have to fight our own army, then we'll probably be building bombs and such. An EE and a Chem Eng could wreck a lot of havok if they worked together.
Well considering that the holes are the size of water molecules, I think it would be safe to say that bacteria and viruses would not fit. It would be like trying to force a tennis ball through a hole in a pasta strainer.
There is unrest on the Internet. Several thousand users have declared their intentions to leave the Republic. This Seperatist movement, inspired by the mysterious DuQu, has made it difficult for the limited number of Jedi Knights to maintain peace and order in the Internet...
...But I didn't realize it until I left. Half of all the youtube videos I try to watch are blocked for one reason or another, Hulu, Netflix, and my Amazon Instant accounts were all out of commission, and iTunes was pretty much my last resort to stream content. I hate iTunes. I also hate trying to stream videos I own on Amazon through a proxy. Suddenly BitTorrent looks mighty friendly to a boredom-induced insanity.
What kind of home network is this and what can you do with all these servers? Is he talking about installing ethernet jacks into all of his rooms? What is the server rack for? Don't the ethernet cables need to all go to a switch or router?
The guy wants 5 million dollars because his daughter spent $200? If I had done that I would've lost use of the iPhone and would have to mow lots of lawns to pay them back. Whatever happened to parenting?
If the Iranians want a different government then it is up to them to make one.
Easier said than done. It's a repressive regime... meaning death to dissenters.
I hope we'll see each other again... sometime...
Or perhaps one of the parents caught wind that Orson Scott Card is Mormon and different and therefore evil. My thoughts exactly as soon as I read the article. They'd better pull Brandon Sanderson from the shelves too, just to be safe.
We're a heck of a lot better at writing secure code than the other animals
Perhaps God once was as we are now?
This 1000-mile long passenger-safe rail gun which has to be vacuum-sealed with one-way vents will be cheaper than conventional rockets in the long run? I wonder what the initial cost for this structure would be... probably more than the combined net worth of all the countries on earth.
Why can't you scan people twice at two different angles (a la mugshots)? Then any weapons strapped to the side of the person will be revealed.
New submitter Stowie101 writes "British master engineer Ian Shepherd is ripping Apple's Mastered for iTunes service, saying it is pure marketing hype and isn't different than a standard AAC file in iTunes. Shepherd compared three digital music files, including a Red Hot Chili Peppers song downloaded in the Mastered for iTunes format with a CD version of the same song, and said there were no differences. Apple or someone else needs to step it up here and offer some true 'CD quality downloads.'"
