Well, actually there are far worse ERPs out there than Dynamix Nav.
And if we build fusion reactors, we would not need uranium in first place.
I once got a laptop from FedEx (or maybe UPS, one or the other) that wasn't mine. Got a call from the person working there looking for it, so I told her I had it and she drove out and got it. I did that because it wasn't mine and I'm not an asshole. Maybe I could have kept it legally, but you know what? She made a mistake, and were I her, I certainty would have wanted the package to be returned so I don't lose my job or something. That's just being a decent person.
A buddy of mine and I played Doom forever, heck we still do on occasion.
We didn't have the ability to play direct connect, so we discovered and figured out how to get modem play to work. we upgraded to USRobotics 28.8 DSVD modems, and figured out how to get them to work and how we could talk over the phone line while playing the game. This was all pre-internet days, so I had to figure out the AT Commands to enable DSVD, to dial, to answer etc. fun times. again lots of trial and error, dropped connections, all that fun stuff. and now, here we are where you can pick up a console connect multiplayer over the internet and instantly play with anyone you want anywhere in the world.
people who say there's been no progress in 20 years, obviously don't know where to look.
So did, in fact, christians. Germany in WW1 and WW2 - a very christian nation back then, fortunately not so much anymore nowadays. USA in Korea, Vietnam, Cambodia, Iraq, not to count several brush wars in South America and people killed indirectly by funding terrorists like Nicaraguan contras.
Your point was?
Waist high snow *at least*.
It's not about offence... it's about freedom of religion, a central tenet of the US constitution. everyone has the right to worship as they see fit. and if that's christian, wiccan, hindu, buddhist, shinto, Satanism, paganism or Pastafarianism.
There should be no offense to putting up another religion's symbolism if the government has already decreed that it is alright to place religious symbolism on government property. There really is no arguement against it.
They don't need a 3/4ths majority, the government has already allowed "Religious monuments" they cannot specify a specific religion as that is unconstitutional.
Nobody else thinks you are either.
Whoa, I wasn't aware I was speaking to a representative of the entire human race. The honour is all mine!
Less intelligent people only see problems while more intelligent people see the solutions.
Rubbish. Less intelligent people don't bother themselves with problems or solutions because thinking is work and it's much easier to just shovel chips into one's mouth in front of Faux News.
Your despair is due to your inability to find your contribution to the solution. Perhaps you should focus on that.
Thanks for the armchair psychological assessment. I suggest you dial back on the conviction with which you write, especially if you're going to post unfounded rubbish like this.
Thirty years and hitting the sauce, not the best of odds, but hey, go for it. (I was lucky, back mid-Eighties after twenty years of hard drinking; about the only thing that hadn't been adversely affected was my liver. Go figure.)
I've actually heard that before, quite surprising. Of course, I've also heard the other side.. with the stabbing pains and the doctors warning "drink again and its curtains for you buddy".
If you can provide for your physical needs, then it's just an uncomfortable state of mind. If your situation is worse, then it gets really annoying, trending to flat-out bad, going by personal experience.
Like many a tool, if what these guys have found gets used, some of the uses will be ungood. But for someone caught up in a situation that by most lights just needs for them to apply a little extra oomph, might be a good thing - with consent, of course.
Wise words for sure. Personally I'm all for (voluntary) wire-heading. If a wee current applied judiciously can assist in some cases the next logical step would be a small device to monitor and manage the 'dosage' and at that point it's probably ready to be of use for the public. We've done pretty well with the SSRI/SNRI series of drugs but it would be nice to have another way of approaching mental health problems and especially if it has the potential to have lesser or no side-effects.
Thanks, this was an interesting reply.
Neither the original Slashdot post (which linked to the BBC) nor TFA (Washington Post) in this post imply that this was anything more than a common-or-garden theft. Maybe you've heard something I haven't.
No - more likely I've got my facts wrong. I was under the understanding that they brutalised the occupants of the truck once they had them out of the cab. I might just have to go re-read that article..
My sister has been mugged before. I've had friends be mugged. It's horrible, but it's a long way from "sadism" or "torture". Just opportunistic thugs looking to make a little bit of money, who absolutely could be rehabilitated.
Actually I couldn't agree more. Mugging is just awful but it's certainly not what I was upset about; my anger was centred on the unnecessary injury inflicted by the two thieves (which may be hearsay, embarrassingly enough).
Heh, fair enough, my English was particularly bad this morning.
No, that just shows that going for a PhD in CEE is not a hindrance for being a prick.
is known for its cowtowing to the intellectual property holders. That is why they try to go to that particular court if they sue for copyright infridgement.
Maybe I'll take up alcoholism, for the holidays.
I can't speak highly enough of alcoholism, myself. It's the only thing that has kept me anaesthetised against the will-to-live-destroying arrogance and stupidity* of the human race.
Still, only another thirty years to go and I can wave this shithole goodbye forever!
* I don't think I'm smarter than the average person, just smart enough to observe our species' behaviour.. and despair.
+1 for the obscure RD reference!
