No, you are not getting it. Suppose that P[i] denotes the i-th prime number. The proposed theorem does not say that P[i+1]-P[i] <= 70 million for all values of i, as you believe.
What it does say is that for every index k for which P[k+1]-P[k] > 70 you can find a number m greater than k such that P[m+1]-P[m] <= 70 million.
That seems like such a weird song to sing up there sitting in a tin can.
Bowie sorta updated the matter on Scary Monsters anyway.
ashes to ashes funk to funky
we know major tom's a junky
strung out on heaven's high
hitting an all time low
And that is precisely why Hadfield's version has "updated lyrics", as TFS says. If you listen carefully you'll realize that most of the changes in the lyrics are precisely to the parts that lead to the conjecture that Major Tom may actually be a junkie overdosing.
(Of course other things like "protein pills" and "check ignition" are changed simply to avoid misleading people that may take him too literally.)
I'm pretty sure that for a device to be associated, it has to be attempting to join the network. I could be wrong, I'm not a WiFi engineer. Please correct me if I'm wrong about that.
No, I'm pretty sure that you are absolutely right about that: You are not a WiFi engineer.
So Fusion's the same as the Momentus Drives, ya?
Nope, Seagate Momentus XT drives use the NAND Flash as a cache for the HDD, like SRT does. Furthermore, they only have 4 GB or 8 GB of NAND Flash, as opposed to the 128 GB in the SSD portion of the Fusion Drive and 64 GB of SRT. So the Momentus are actually more distanced to the Fusion drives than the SRT.
I see that you don't really understand what Apple's Fusion Drive really is. In Intel's SRT the SSD drive acts like a cache for the HDD. I hope I don't need to explain what a disk cache is and how it works. In the Fusion Drive on the other hand both drives appear as a single logical volume with the space of both drives combined and the OS decides which files get stored on the SSD and which on the HDD. From the Ars Technica article I quoted:
In a caching solution, like Intel's, files live on the hard disk drive and are temporarily mirrored to the SSD cache as needed. In an enterprise auto-tiering situation, and with Fusion Drive, the data is actually moved from one tier to another, rather than only being temporarily cached there.
Those are two very different approaches.
Using RAID0 when RAID5 exists should be a crime.
Given that he said that he has only two drives in his array, it's kind of... uh... impossible for him to configure it as RAID 5.
Use the dictionary of your choice and check the words "continent" and "country".
Well, I went one step further and used several of the dictionaries and encyclopedias of my choice and checked the word "America". Guess what I found.
From the New Oxford American (oh the irony!) Dictionary (emphasis mine):
America (also the Americas):
a landmass in the western hemisphere that consists of the continents of North and South America joined by the Isthmus of Panama. The continent was originally inhabited by American Indians and Inuits. The northeast coastline of North America was visited by Norse seamen in the 8th or 9th century, but for the modern world the continent was first reached by Christopher Columbus in 1492.
- used as a name for the United States.
Note that the definition of the landmass precedes the definition of the USA. Similar precedence will be found also in Wikipedia, Merriam-Webster, and most other authoritative sources (admittedly not all, although all will acknowledge both meanings).
And regarding the definition of "continent" you need to realize that there are at least five different definitions for that word using different criteria. You were taught a particular one that separated North and South America, but other people (in particular outside the USA) are taught other definitions and most of those don't make that distinction.
By the way, according to the CIA the conventional short name for the United States of America is "United States", not "America".
(...) but I can't believe not a single person has suggested that you leave your room, walk across campus and go to the freaking library. Need a computer? There are computer labs everywhere, too. Seriously, I thought this was one of the worst ask slasdots and expected half the answers to be "Go to the f-ing library". But no one?! let me say it then.
GO TO THE F-ING LIBRARY!
Actually, several people suggested that. This guy, for example, suggested it 42 minutes before you did.
You know who believes that things will be different when every damn time in the past they haven't been? Charlie Brown, that's who. He never managed to kick that football.
Oh, but he did kick that football once.
timemachine isn't some magical and new thing. It's called a GUI over the top of rsync.
What? No, it's not. It's not even remotely something like that.
I wonder if it's a coincidence that in the last three or four days I started to receive a lot more spam to my Yahoo mail address. By "a lot more" I mean three or four times more than what I was receiving a week ago each day.
I don't have any relation with anyone in New Zealand, so my guess is that it's indeed just a coincidence. But still the timing makes me wonder.
In other words - it's the phone you recommend to your parents so you don't have to do tech support for them.
I don't think you realize the implications of that last thing you say.
What you are saying is that if you are not extremely technically oriented (i.e., you are like the vast majority of people) then the iPhone is the best phone for you: It allows you to do almost everything that you can do with the "other" phones (and certainly pretty much everything that common people actually want to do with them), it gives you access to a library of 800,000 curated apps of all types, and, most importantly, it allows you to do all this without having to constantly resort to the help of your technically oriented son.
You should work for Apple's publicity agents, man.
All Brazilians who live in Brazil speak Portuguese... those who don't, were born abroad.
Some practically undiscovered tribes in the Amazon jungle don't speak Portuguese...
Granted, the numbers are too small to really matter, but still.
Actually it's slightly more interesting than that, and even more rewarding, when you realize that the Cyrillic alphabet has direct roots in the Greek alphabet. (The Latin alphabet used by Western European languages also has its roots in Greek, but slightly farther).
How is this relevant? Let me give you two examples that you are already familiar with:
The letter that looks exactly like a p actually derives from the Greek letter rho. Thus, it has an R sound.
The letter that looks like a cross between a lowercase N and Greek letter pi is pronounced like a P because... ah, I guess I already gave that one away.
Other examples include a letter that looks like phi and sounds like and F, an uppercase gamma that sounds like G, a deformed upper-case delta that sounds like D, an uppercase upsilon that sounds like U, and of course the descendants of alpha, beta, epsilon, kappa, mu, tau, and others that look (and sound) almost the same in Russian and in English.
