It averages less than 4000 on the PassMark CPUMark test. Roughly the same as a SandyBridge i3 (i3-2xxx series) or to put things into perspective a Core 2 Quad from 2008.
As far as computing goes, well into the 70s, computers were a mainly female dominated industry. In the 80's people started getting computers into their own homes and elementary schools. Then people could learn computer skills without attending a university. If I want speculate why women dominated at that time, I would guess it started in the 40s during the war. Civilian women in mathematics (like Grace Hopper) were recruited into the computer industry to help with the war effort while many of the men were abroad. Grace became an officer in the Navy as a result of her previous professorship. Women who were not college educated who had experience typing were likely recruited into computing as well to do data entry and to convert hand written programs into punch cards and such. Many of them I'm sure picked up some knowledge of programming along the way.
A zealous grumpy old moderator if you are who I think you are. Moth!
There's an old survivalist trick where you can use a pit with water, waste, urine, etc and you put a collection can/bucket in the middle, stretch plastic over the top and put a rock in the middle. The water evaporates and condenses on the plastic and gravity pulls it down to where the rock is in the center and it drips into the collection can. It is essentially distilled and clean to drink as long as nothing else is evaporating and condensing.
In addition, the NSA errm sorry, NASA said they are particularly interested in keeping a close eye on the carbon emissions from Russia, Syria, China, and North Korea.
BestBuy sells H2O wireless SIMs that do not come with phones. The card says use with any unlocked GSM phone.
Wait... If I understand this correctly you're saying "It's hard to get extra hours when you're busy working all the time" ?
Obviously a comment by someone who doesn't have it.
In order to own a gun, at least in Victoria, you have to compete in a certain number of competitions per year. Essentially making it cost prohibitive. You can however join a club and rent "gun time" at the target range and use one of their guns. I know a girl who's a "gun nut" near Melbourne and she said on the one hand she feels that they should be allowed to own a gun but she said that everyone there's a horrible shot because they have no experience.
Just because there are no guns in the UK doesn't mean people aren't murdered.
Now all the spammers will get their servers overloaded. If they send out millions of e-mails and they all immediately get "opened" by google trying to pull in the picture data.
EPA emissions on cars regarding greenhouse gas emissions have to cover all amounts emitted including gasses released from paint, used in the making of plastics and tires. By adding this button they facilitate a way to release smoke and other gasses from the tires into the air.
You'd have thought they learned their lesson when dealing with Bobby Tables, aka "Robert'); DROP TABLE Students;
US University costs are high because they know you're going to get loans and grants to help pay for it. If it wasn't so easy to get assistance from the government they would have to compete. Before all the loans and grants you could easily afford a college degree on part time wages.
With all those datacenters the town won't be that cold for long.
