Was it a Crucial M4? If so, maybe it hit that firmware bug where it craps out after a few thousand hours? There is a firmware update to fix it.
What did you do wrong?
There are always those douches who never wash their hands after using the toilet.
Now it's a good time to have a campaign:
WASH YOUR HANDS OR DIE OF EBOLA.
In his novel, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A...
Wish he was alive to see this.
Heh also sounds like the gaia field introduced in the Dreaming Void series - and I think the gaia field is even better than in the Reality Dysfunction.
I have a theory that this is why the Japanese automakers were so successful in North America too.
Where is the evidence to support this assertion?
I here this all the time, that rape is all about control. But i have not found any scientific evidence to support this. Maybe rape is...a desperate way to get sex?
It was probably one of the hospital scenes in Hard Boiled. I think they had to reshoot that at least 3 times.
Americans sure love their friendly fire! (A bunch of Canadians in Afghanistan were bombed by Americans by mistake)
According to this you are wrong:
This would be the 2nd time a BOP has failed.
An example can be found here:
Note that dot size can vary, as well as the patterns used.
Ah, but the dots are scattered around, not in neat rows - at least, with more modern printers anyways (publishing and inkjet), so you won't see "screen door".
One thing you forgot: Print does not have the screendoor effect that LCD does.
Screendoor effect = the gaps between the pixels of an LCOS/LCD/DLP/AMOLED display. Print does not have this issue because of the dot spray pattern of ink.
And in the meantime, many people opt to "deadhead" for X number of hundred years - voluntarily putting themselves in a suspended state, when they feel they've done everything they really want to do and see everything they want to see. This just seems a few steps beyond the material you typically find in science fiction in the movies or on TV, not to mention in other books I've read so far!
Iain Banks did this in his Culture books, back in the early 1990s.
