I just watched this tonight with a lady friend. I was bored enough to browse
Wow - you just casually admit to this? For the sake of others, please never do this again. There's a reason that theaters run the little public service announcements about turning off your phone before the movie. This should be a standard question on a test designed to identify sociopaths: "If you bored while watching a movie in a theater, do you a) suffer silently, b) leave the theater, or c) ignore the rest of the people in the theater that have paid to watch the movie and pull out your phone."
Here's hoping something like Tardigrades evolved on Mars too, if so, they'd probably still be revivable today even after a couple billion years.
An opposing opinion: http://www.popularmechanics.co...
"If Mars is equally lifeless, that will make exploring--and later settling--the planet much easier. We can go there and return without this particular worry, and we can introduce Earth life without concerns that we'll damage indigenous creatures. Astronauts won't have to be quarantined, and the environmental impact statement, or its interplanetary equivalent, will be easier to determine. On the other hand, if there is life on Mars, things get a lot tougher."
I have the Surface Pro 3 as my primary desktop system. This is the note that I sent to our computer support staff when I specced-out what I wanted:
Surface Pro 3 does indeed have a docking station (looks pretty complete):
With this device, I can replicate my current office setup:
DisplayPort 1.2 Multi-Stream Transport (MST) hub
Here’s a link for one model:
This supports two external monitors. The tablet acts as a third monitor. You can actually support two without the hub, but that would entail plugging in a connector every time I return to the office.
With an 8-GB RAM, and 512 GB storage model, I can pretty much duplicate my current laptop and docking station.
I've been rather pleased with this setup. When I go to meetings, I just grab the tablet and go. Performance is good
Not a paid shill!
"That faithful year
For future reference, the commonly-used phrase is "That fateful year
This is just a rewording of the old saw that illegal immigrants are doing the jobs that Americans won't do -- at salaries that are too low. If the flow of H1-Bs dried up, then wages would rise as the American tech workers would become more valuable. As wages rose, then becoming a tech worker would be viewed more favorably.
With the same evidence, Huff Po could have argued that H1-Bs are depressing wages for American tech workers.
This is hilarious. Projecting the results from a cradle-to-grave communist all-controlling government onto a theoretical libertarian society, when the two philosophies are polar opposites.
Perhaps you should be warning against a continuance of US big-government statism, instead, as the elimination of private property rights contributed heavily to the problems in China.
It would be beyond nice if LibreOffice could eventually be ported to Qt.
I assume that a large part of the codebase is still responsible for the platform-independent UI that stated with StarOffice. Removing that responsibility from the LibreOffice team might eventually payoff in improving the look-and-feel and freeing resources for feature enhancements.
... Krita (which originated from Gimp)
I really doubt that this is true (of course, I may be wrong). Krita is a KDE application (so QT-based) and it has a very different focus and approach. I can't imagine that the two projects share much code, if any.
Plus, it doesn't solve any known problem. Fraud didn't go down in the places that required IDs. There were just fewer Blacks voting.
Well, for the one state that I happen to have read anything about this matter (Georgia), black voting participation increased after the voter ID law passed (source: Atlanta Constitution). So, you're wrong.
You are in a maze of UUCP connections, all alike.
