I for one am just grateful that a liberal jurist has finally acknowledged that it would take a constitutional amendment to do that. Most of them seem to think that the Constitution already reads that way.
I am too. And I agree with Stevens that it needs to be changed. I don't think the Constitution should be ignored because parts of it are no longer useful or fashionable. It should not remain some relic of a bygone era. It should be a living document that enshrines how we have grown as a nation and as a people; how we as citizens want to live today and in the future. I think that is what the founding fathers would have expected of us.
This is not for a remote control. It's a simple slide latch for a radio battery. And the problem with the design is that the plastic it was made from was the same as the battery case, which is too brittle for the switch. A less brittle plastic such as ABS or HIPS would actually work better and last longer. Was a material scientist consulted when designing the battery? Doubtful.
Since you have no idea about the problem I am trying to solve, the "ignorant" comment seems misplaced. Will the solution be ideal? Certainly not. But it will be "good enough" and even "better than stock". Probably. I currently have six different types of material for my 3D printer, each with its own purpose. Is 3D printing a panacea? No. But there are real problems that it can solve today. And putting more of them in people's hands will encourage innovation in printing technologies and materials science. Hell, the materials available to work with today are way more versatile than the limited rapid prototyping materials available to me 20+ years ago.
Most people just want to be able to download an object from the internet and print it out. Missing a part for that new 'some assembly required' doodad that you bought? Hit their website and print it out. Cheap plastic part snapped under abusive strain? Print out a new one.
Exactly. I have a battery with a broken latching mechanism. A replacement battery is $50. I could print a replacement plastic part for pennies if I had a model for it.
Not only is it English, it is British English from English Britain, the original and still the best English since 1066.
More like the tortured English of Murdoch's London headline writers. I don't think they are required to have a complete understanding of the language. I could write a book entitled "How to turn any sentence into meaningless gibberish with just a Thesaurus" using just London newspaper headlines as examples.
I would rather have my kernel only swap when needed and this is when it runs out of memory.
You really don't want your kernel swapping when it runs out of memory. That is too late and will kill performance. Instead, your kernel moves pages that are not used to swap so that it can be freed for other, more important things when the need arises. That is a much more efficient way to manage memory.
That said, the kernel provides tuning parameters that will give you what you want.
Jalapenos shipped in from areas who where more stressed will be hotter, And that is pretty much he only way to know.
Agreed. And you can look for signs of stress on the skin of the Jalapeno. There will be white striations on the pepper. The more the merrier in my book. It's only a guideline -- there will still be lots of variation in heat. But, in general, the more skin damage the hotter the pepper.
Hashtag and At are just a condensed form of markup. They are useful for entry of tweets but completely unnecessary for displaying them.
Except they make it readily apparent how to compose a tweet -- even for new users. #dying
Not sure they can be unlawful combatants unless there is actually combat taking place.
Ah, yes. It was vacationing Russians that took over the Crimean peninsula. They saved some money by parachuting in rather than taking a commercial flight to Sevastopal. (The checked bag fees are brutal!) And I hear combat gear is the newest fashion statement out of the Moscow fashion district this year.
Citation? I have a hard time believing the Geneva Conventions condone a bullet to the head for anyone.
According to Article 4 of the Third Geneva Convention of 1949, irregular forces are entitled to prisoner of war status provided that they are commanded by a person responsible for his subordinates, have a fixed distinctive sign recognizable at a distance, carry arms openly, and conduct their operations in accordance with the laws and customs of war. If they do not do meet all of these, they may be considered francs-tireurs (in the original sense of "illegal combatant") and punished as criminals in a military jurisdiction, which may include summary execution
