Maybe he meant "coup deGrasse" which is when Neil deGrasse Tyson overthrows scientific ideas.
PostgreSQL has not been successful in penetrating cheap shared hosting providers. There is no web based tool comparable to phpMyAdmin and there are more reasons why PostgreSQL has not been successful despite its technical advantages.
Ask and ye shall receive:
If merchants added the CC service fee then you could pay $100 cash or $103 with a CC. That's why there should be a law that CC fees have to be added on just like sales tax.
After all, for the consumer, a fee is no different than a tax except that it goes to different bloodsucker.
I buy my coffee direct from a Canadian company that has partnered with a coffee grower in Thailand to provide a high quality, shade grown, organic coffee. Although I've never tried it (due to the price and the obvious ick factor), they offer Kopi Lewak but it is from wild civets not caged, domesticated civets for this exact reason.
It's not only the digestive process that is important but that the civets are particular and only eat the ripest, sweetest berries and theoretically the best berries contain the best beans. Since this company's coffee is already a high quality coffee I imagine their Kopi Lewak is also better than the rest due to their use of wild civets.
This is analogous to the difference between commercially raised and free range chickens.
So no, I don't believe the threat of being stared at by a full size cutout of the Biebs would solve crime either.
Then maybe you just need to up the ante. How about have the real Bieber sitting naked on the edge of his desk seductively blowing him kisses?
Back in the day I co-developed a set of tools that off loaded costly mainframe development to relatively inexpensive OS/2 workstations. Code was synchronized between the two platforms with a full execution environment for each developer rather than the single shared environment they had on the mainframe. For those of you interested in such things, it was a CICS/COBOL/DB2 application being developed.
At the time, Windows 3.1 would have been the only alternative and it couldn't even come close to what OS/2 was capable of.
That's exactly what TFA says. Banks like the fear of lost passwords, because they can use that fear to their (profitable) advantage:
"When perceived risk is greater than actual risk it can be protable to absorb the risk and charge for it. Rental car companies are not merely willing, but anxious to accept liability for any damage to the car for $35 a day; various companies aggressively market identity theft protection for $12 a month. Banks enjoy a huge information advantage over consumers: they know how much fraud costs them, while consumers merely hear horror stories of cyber-crime losses. Passing liability to consumers...would seem to be wasting a protable opportunity."
Protable? WTF is protable?
How can you possibly introduce a spelling mistake...TWICE...with a cut/paste?
Various incarnations of MVS have been running since 1974. No viruses or malware reported. Five years barely even registers on that time scale.
Real men run their operating systems on big iron.
No, the question is, how overbearing do you want the State to become? How many laws is it going to take before we are 100% safe in our daily lives?
Of course you'll never be 100% safe but that's no reason to not at least try. Let's say current laws make you 50% safe but that with new laws you could push that to 80%. Wouldn't it be worth doing if you can make yourself safer?
What is that country going to look like?
It might look like something like Canada. You must be licensed (after a background check) to have a gun, you have have to store safely/securely and can it only be transported between your home and certain locations (gun club, gun shop, hunting range, etc).
I used to own a gun and after the initial paperwork it's not that much of a hassle and the responsible gun owners (keyword "responsible") I met might have grumbled about the aggravation some times but they all understood why the rules were there.
If someone gets to that point and is even mildly resourceful, he will find a way to get what he wants, guns or no guns.
That's the excuse used by certain gun lobbies to protect the status quo. The status quo kills more and more people every day.
[Warning. Obligatory car analogy ahead.]
To legally drive a car you need to register with the government and be evaluated by an examiner. In most places you're required by law to have insurance. The government even puts limits on how you're able to use your car - minimum age, speed limits, stop signs, traffic lights, driving on the right hand side, no drinking and driving, etc. The government also determines what kind of car is street legal.
So where's the outrage over the government infringing on your rights?
Do the government's laws and regulations prevent you from owning a car? No.
Does it promote public safety? Yes.
That's what guns laws are about. Just like you can't drive a top fuel dragster on the highway you don't need a high power assault rifle with a 50 round magazine. Why? Because it's not in the best interests of public safety.
I only know what you meant by what you said. If you meant "use a thermometer every day" then you shouldn't have said "boil water everyday", something we all clearly do.
Sometimes when you "try" to be clever it ends up looking like the opposite. Maybe you should be clearer in the future.
We don't boil water on a daily basis, but we're expected to use the boiling and freezing points of water for our daily experience?
I think the same thing every morning as I make my coffee...oh, wait. No, I meant iced coffee...damn it.
I thought their two weapons were surprise and fear.
You must have been thinking of Uranus.
Fact: Using Fact and Period makes your point even more universally true. Period.
