I've noticed (particularly on facebook) that Republicans have a hard time with "your" and "you're", that was my way of laughing at a seemingly semiliterate fool. Maybe that's why Trump's in the lead?
Or you can avoid most of the dangers of hydro by not building the dams in heavily populated areas.
You could, except major rivers tend to be heavily populated.
As a communist luddite, I find your comment offensive.
But comrade, through technology we can achieve a true hive-mind.
Climate change skepticism?
There can never be too much skepticism.
As evidence piles up there comes a point when you're simply using "scepticism" as an excuse to refuse to believe a conclusion you don't like. For climate change, that point went a long time ago. What ever reasons drive climate change "sceptics", they have nothing to do with science.
To be heard, you now have to shout louder and 10x more irrationally than everyone else.
Is the current issue so important that you have to win, even at the cost of making the world a less rational place? No? Then don't shout. Instead, calmly explain your viewpoint. That way you advance the cause of solving disputes through rational discourse rather than shouting the loudest, which should result in the world becoming a better place overall since being rational helps us make decisions that get us what we want and avoid things we don't.
You can't win a war if you obsess over individual battles.
But, I don't recall the enormous wailing and hand wringing about the USA losing its abilities in space back during the gap in the 70's like there is today.
That's cause apparently we have no balls now; apparently having them means little to no wailing and hand wringing...
Unlike ethernet, which is pretty much standard from platform to platform and basically trivial to support, USB code is completely different between linux, OS X, and Windows, and is a mess, API-wise.
I write software defined radio stuff, and after one incredible nightmare getting a USB SDR to work on all three platforms using conditional compilation (I did succeed), I swore off. No more. If it doesn't have an ethernet interface, or a USB-to-ethernet server app compatible with the standard SDR protocols that makes it appear to me as an ethernet SDR, it's not happening.
Luckily, some of the best SDR manufacturers out there have done it right. Andrus, AFDRI, and RFSPACE. And there are some servers that have been built to hide the abortion of USB, but so far they are very much platform-specific, for the very reason I described above.
Dude have you not be on the Internet lately? there is a billion and one articles extolling using these Pi style boards for HTPCs which as GP pointed out and I agreed with is some serious dumb shit, but its the Internet so there is no lack of dumbshit.
That said I have a buddy that does car PC installs and uses boards like I linked to and for THOSE kinds of embedded projects? They work VERY well, top draw on them boards when playing media is sub 12w, they are fanless, and as I pointed out all the I/O you could need is baked right in.
So again unless your project has a specific requirement to be the size of a stick of gum? The X86 units would probably be a better choice.
What really bothers me is it should only take a few lines of code to replace garbage characters that slashdot shows with an ascii code for that character.
The worst is that it looks fine in preview, but the garbage comes out on the post. It's like they're deliberately trying to run off users.
It wouldn't matter to me if they were Hindu, Jewish, or atheist. What bugs me is when someone doesn't practice what they preach. But religion should play no part in politics, except that hypocrisy is a no-go for me.
Take gay marriage, for example. Government should have no part whatever in marriage. I should not need a license to get married, and why is it all right to discriminate against single people? Why should a married couple earning $50k pay less than a war widow with a child earning the same amount?
If government had no hand in marriage, the "gay marriage" issue would have never come up.
I never vote party, I vote individual candidate, and this time none of the Democrats are anywhere near as bad as the Republican candidates.
