All the early rockets in the space race were later used as ICMBs (mercury -> atlas, gemeni -> titan, both became ICBMs). Except the saturn V most prior mature rokets became ICBMs and NASA did the development. You might head over to wikipedia and read a bit about it. Usually it's not clearly stated but if you compare the military programmes with the NASA's you'll start to see that the space race actually survived because of the military value (and the obvious political one, but that wasn't the only reason).
Looks like you need to blow off some steam, have you considered posting to alt.sysadmin.recovery lately?
Not in our environment. I am working as developer for a large company, using oracle 10 and 11. There is no way our oracle servers can distinguish between NULL and an empty string (varchar2):
Hello. I am living in a country where cellphone network providers are regulated by the state. They must offer sim cards without phone contracts. I get 100% coverage in my country with all carriers and pay 69$ a month for unlimited text, speech and internet. The phone i bought (Galaxy Nexus) has cost me $380 and will last for 2 years.
Before we had this regulations I payed at least twice the price per year. I took about 2 years for the market to adjust and priced dropped significantly. Our telcos are still reporting huge profits every year so the must have made much more before.
Basically because most f the people here started buying the phones, the cellphone providers became just another data provider (utility). Subsidized phones have kept the prices artificially high in the past.
I am co-founder of a company that produces small autonomous aircrafts. Google bought one from us.
OMG rot13, lame and even smaller than a nomad.
I guess rot13 is the new troll standard for
I feel your pain. My primary desktop computers run linux since 2001. The last couple of years has been a real PITA with change for changes sake. I've been through KDE, Gnome, XFCE and various light weight DMs. With the release of e17 I switched to Bodhi and am pretty happy. If they keep their release cycle, e18 will be out around 2020
I didn't know MacOS is Linux based. Care to tell me a bit more about this linux stuff in OSX?
According to Shankar, “In hindsight, I might have wanted to take smaller steps and make a tower defense game instead of jumping directly into an RTS. Trying to do the whole thing in under a month all by myself wasn’t the smartest idea.”
This implementation of Command and Conquer has been developed entirely in HTML5, so any modern web browser should be compatible. In its current incarnation you can’t play the entire game. You can run through the first few levels of both campaigns, but there is online multiplayer support through node.js.
All the assets and audio are lifted directly from the original game, circa 1995. The developer stresses that the port was not created for financial gains, but only as a proof of concept. The game itself is available as a free download from EA , and has been for a few years. Considering this, you might be able to get away with calling the HTML5 port fair use.
The game itself plays well in most places. Unit movement seems a little clumsy, but this might be a fair representation of the original game. The multiplayer skirmishes are good for a few rounds of fun, but many of the structures and units from the full game are missing at this point. Assuming the developer does not get a cease and desist, more content could be added later."

My ISP (cable and wireless) is constantly getting cheaper while offering more bandwidth (they do not only promise but deliver more).
But hey, I am not living in the US
Is this spacecraft going to be docking automatically in the future? Something that the early soyuz (read ~1970) already did.
IANAL and therefore do not understand how a court in one country can overturn a ruling from another sovereign nation's court. Could someone with anough knowledge elaborate?
We deny that the data has been leaked by accident, it wasn't a leak it was a sale, you know.
I am swiss, and no: ~1400 is a village not a town here.
Why this announcement now? There were some interesting titles I would have bought one year ago, but not with these DRM constrains. Now it is too late. I have ditched ubi back when they started getting anal with their DRM.
