I've never seen, or even heard of, a traffic light that doesn't operate that way.
No way!!! Who came up with that? Pure genius.
When I see 50 somethings wearing bluetooth earpieces I'm inclined to think that in ten years they'll be wearing these goofy glasses too.
I think the key to getting accreditation for education is the separation of teaching from testing. They should be completely independent. Many higher level programs operate this way. You can learn in any way you want from private tutors to full university classes, but everyone takes the same tests and is held to the same high standard. I could go on and on about this but I'm sure many out there who have learned under this kind of system will agree that it's superior to the high school/university style of teaching, where teacher's are far more interested in testing students than actually teaching them anything.
Could do that years ago. There's a whole scene in Good Will Hunting about how he got his advanced education for 45 cents in late charges at the library.
Used windows. Tried linux. Couldn't get peripherals, such as printers, to work. Reverted to windows. Tried linux. Couldn't get peripherals, such as printers, to work. Reverted to windows. Stopped trying linux altogether. Staying with windows.
Suppose you're investigating Microsoft. Are you not allowed to use Windows, Word, Excel, Outlook?
What the poster meant was that he's just too lazy to go to the gym when he could be at home watching TV. Any significant workout is going to make you sweat a lot, which is why you don't do it at your desk. If you just want a physical job then sign up to be a mail carrier or bicycle courier.
This needs to be modded up simply because it's a computer analogy for a car issue.
People should be trying to break the game while it is in beta. Then you go back and fix those problems. In this case they used the extremely limited beta only as a form of advertizing.
Lots of crappy ideas go back that far.
Slashdotters only imagine building Beowulf clusters. This is the first time anyone's been serious about it.
With a 3D printer you skip many steps in making something. In the past molds were made directly off of someone's limb. Now, they scan the limb into the computer and design the new part off of it. Computer design allows much more sophistication. Once the design is done you print directly from that and test the component on the individual getting treatment. If there's an issue you can make a minor fix to the design and print again. It's probably cheaper to take five stabs at printing something on a 3D printer than doing one version of the old process where you take a mold, do casts, modify them by hand, etc.
People who know little about cars are regularly taken advantage of. "Sir, it looks like the valve head displacement timing is off by a parsec. It'll cost around $500 to fix but do you want it breaking down when you're on the highway?"
I call BS on that one. The servers may be handling the inter-city calculations but that's it. There's just no way that these mini-cities have so many calculations that a decent desktop stumbles with them.
