Personally I think that's going too far and we should be worrying about crimes committed against children instead of being thought police. Go after child molesters first - there's been more effort going after Kim Dotcom by playing the child porn hosting card than going after a convicted child rapist like Polanski.
It takes a while to go from lab to cheap commodity - far less time from lab to niche product.
You seem to think I "wasted" my time
Since I'd already addressed it before your post - most definitely.
All that time wasted on a throwaway aside that had already been pointed out as such AND SETTING ME UP AS A STRAWMAN instead of a productive discussion. A complete and utter waste of time that just makes you look like a vindictive child instead of whatever you really are. Let's just put that behind us and take what you've written about trains as read.
It should be noted that our electric light rail are almost all modern
Sorry to point this out again - but mass transit is an example of an industry that the USA just is not interested in dealing with apart from buying stuff from elsewhere (eg. importing German trams/light rail for that modern stuff) and my point was that many others are heading that way unless there is a focus on quality and/or technological progress instead of mere hope and greed. That's the only reason why I mentioned trains as an example. Can we get back to that point or do you want to continue going off on a tangent and pretending that I'm leading you there?
It all depends upon the STORY being told.
If the "infection" has already happened (you're a zombie when you die whether or not you were bitten) then that changes the math.
Then it comes down to how fast you become a zombie once a zombie bites you. Seconds or days?
And, finally, it comes down to whether this is going to be a book or a movie/TV show. In a book the protagonists can employ non-FPS means to deal with zombies. Otherwise you're stuck with hand-to-hand and guns.
No. Not similarly.
Just because A and B share a single common feature does NOT make A = B. And your original claim was incorrect. Twitter is not "the modern equivalent of the public square".
Particularly when you then try to argue that C and D are also equal.
Is it good to cut off access to the modern equivalent of the public square just because we don't like what is being said?
It's a good thing that no one is doing that, right?
Remember, twitter is owned by the twitter people who get to decide who is allowed to post what on twitter.
Just because you feel you have something to say does NOT mean that EVERYONE has to carry YOUR message.
obscene amount of CPU time is uses for doing just about anything.
Yes, the obscene amount on a Nokia N900 phone, on an older Kindle, on a thin client, on a Pentium fucking 60 - maybe up to 5% of CPU at times. How is a modern system with GHz instead of 60 MHz and multiple cores going to cope?
It's best to think before posting Mr AC.
I wish Wayland the best but the fanboys who pretend that the bar for it to reach is set low are hindering it.
because something exists and is important to niche users, it must not be true that it isn't used "a lot?" Huh?
If you read my earlier post (about "attacking obvious examples of abandoned industries") after writing all of that you must feel really stupid for wasting so much of your time
You missed the obvious example AND got things wrong in your criticism when you got "hung up on absolutes" by taking it literally and not as an obvious example, Were you drunk?
Also why all the anecdotal shit when you can look up freight numbers that will correct it anyway?
