Besides, when he was a little older and more aware of appropriateness, we had a better discussion about which words are appropriate to say in public. It was a much better way to handle it.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
NOTE: While it's not VERY radioactive is still IS radioactive. Don't plan a long camping trip there, or decide carry a piece of it around in your pocket. Ummm... I guess unless you like having tumors.
The strangest thing is that OS X has file versioning built in regardless of whether you choose to use TimeMachine for backups. Perhaps they don't understand the difference.
I think that 1 of 2 things happened: 1) Apple uses Time Machine in their versioning of iWork or 2) Apple took the same interface from Time Machine and integrated that into their versioning system. If it's number 2, it's easy to see why someone could make that mistake. Either way, iWork kinda blows and the versioning in OSX doesn't work with MS Office. The best you could hope for with Time Machine is to restore an earlier version from a few hours before.
I don't get it......Why is it that when a vulnerability is found in FOSS, you people all come out and mock it while ignoring all the incompetence of proprietary software?
I see that this is your first visit to Slashdot. Welcome!
The beginning of the universe does not need to conserve energy, but things as far as we can tell are conserved after that.
As far as I understand it, we're trying to figure out what's happening on the edge of the expanding universe, but we have no idea what is outside of our universe that it is expanding into. It could be something that doesn't follow any of our laws of physics and is inexplicable, all we know is that it not this universe. If we know our Universe started in NotThisUniverse, and you mention the beginning of the universe does not need to conserve energy, then doesn't it follow that energy came from NotThisUniverse? And possibly, once here our laws of physics allowed for the creation of a stable universe? If so, could we explain the vacuum energy as saying that the expansion of our universe into NotThisUniverse is allowing the conversion/transfer/creation of energy from NotThisUniverse "stuff" to our universe stuff?
