Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
Looking at the videos, I don't see why they don't airbag the whole head.
Because certain death from suffocation is worse than potential death from head trauma.
The treaty doesn't say anything about them not being able to mine the shit out of the moon.
Never said it did.
It just says they can't claim territory or place nukes in space (which you can be damned sure we've already breached) It also says the parties retain rights over whatever the launch into space, so should they start building mining platforms and shipping stuff back, we couldn't touch the equipment without breaching the treaty.
We wouldn't need to touch the equipment, just implement trade sanctions on whatever they mined out (or the resulting products made from them).
I guess the news is that Google released similar functionality as a built-in, then removed it. Sounds nasty.
They didn't release it, per se. The code was there, but it was only accessible with third party tools. Not saying disabling access to it was the right choice, but it isn't as nasty as it sounds.
Made you look!
No you didn't, because when someone posts anonymously, they don't get notifications about replies, so they will most likely never know that you replied. Remember, only reply to ACs if you think it will help some other reader. Replying to them in the hopes that they will read your reply is delusional.
There's a good reason why Microsoft is the standard for business computing and that's because their products are almost always better than open source.
No, it's because Microsoft is better at running legacy software (or at least that's how businesses see it). And business computing is all about legacy software.
No, you don't grasp that, I DO NOT UPGRADE, THEY DO.
and you carry the cost, whether it be in the form of actual money, or increased amount and obnoxity of ads.
