I am curious how much of today's price increase is due to the loss of $7.5M in BitCoin due to some one tossing a hard drive. That effectively dropped the supply from the max by some decent number......was this spike really just re-valuing the current outstanding balance? (I don't know, I haven't really done the math.)
Just more FUD. Netflix is just one of the biggest reasons that people have Silverlight installed. Therefore, Netflix is the reason that you are vulnerable.
Out of mod points, but a virtual +1 for you, sir.
It might be, but some of us would prefer FTP since bit torrent is blocked by some who see any torrenting as piracy.
Not true.....otherwise hashing wouldn't work.
Password is hashed. Hint is hashed. If the hashes match, it isn't a valid hint. You can still store the hint in an encrypted (reversible) state, but compare the hash against the password.
There are plenty that will accept flash media (USB or card, depending on the model) and play video from it......even if the primary video source is expected to be back-up cam video.
Alternately.....my backup cam (self-install) is just a really long RCA cable....I have a non-powered video switch that I could easily hide and use it to play video from another source (such as a tuner or DVD player).....and switch to back-up cam as needed.
Add to the fact that the number of miles of fiber/cable/wiring needed to cover the United States is far greater than that required to cover any single European country. Land costs + material costs have to be a good bit higher.
Granted, I still think we all overpay for the quality of service we actually get, but I don't think it's as straight forward as Europeans try to paint it. Similar arguments for cell coverage.....how many towers does it take to cover England compared to the United States?
Until management tells you that your estimates are too high and make you give them the best number anyway.
+1 to the above.
It is alive not because people really enjoy working in the language. It's because there's plenty of legacy code and plenty of corporate standards where it's the language to be used......companies are hiring again. That means there's money out there to go to conventions. There are people that need to learn new things and companies can afford to send people to these events that they couldn't do two years ago.
I personally hate Java (technically, it isn't Java I hate so much as the ecosystem and tools around it....the language itself is just a language).....but I use it when I have to.
Using an old laptop as a router isn't the most efficient use of your resources (time, money, energy, etc.). Sure, it can be done......but a router can be had for around $20 that is probably as good or better (I'm assuming your old laptop is at least 5 years old and probably G at best). Spending more would get you a better router (and if you shop around, even open-source compatible), but if the goal is to go on the cheap (assumed because you want to reuse a laptop), I'd still get a stand-alone router.
But if you insist on going that route, go with Linux and manual configuration. Then you can use the laptop for other things as well. Print server, web server, etc.
But in the end, giving the laptop to a group such as this: http://www.interconnection.org/ is better use of the technology.
Yeah, Pepsi Cola can't ride the coat tails of Coca Cola (which I believe is riding on the coat tails of Royal Crown Cola).
Myst was the end-goal for the point/click adventure games.....Doom was near the beginning of a genre.
At this point, point/click adventures aren't going to get a whole lot better than Myst, but FPS games continue to get better.
I have mod points, but you're already at +5 Funny. But this comment is deserving of a +6 Funnier.
Bookfinder.com is a quick and easy search that covers Amazon as well as several other used book sources. It's got an ISBN search so you can see how well a particular version is doing on the market. My wife and kids have used it to pick up college text books.
BetaMax vs VHS. Blu-ray vs HD-DVD.
Obviously it's because the porn industry chose MySQL.
