I still believe that an SEP field is a much simpler solution. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Somebody_Else's_Problem. ANd it runs on a torch battery.
"This summer, the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) plans to launch two amazingly cute yet advanced, white-helmeted robots into space. Then an astronaut aboard the International Space Station (ISS) will attempt to **** with one of them."
vi is to computing what an 18-wheeler with an non-synchronised manual gearbox is to driving. Sure, there are case where you need it, but it is counter-intuitive and old-fashioned to anyone who has ever used a modern, end user tool. The problem with teaching vi is motivation. They're not just struggling with the concept of weird-sounding key shortcuts, they're struggling to understand why they need to learn such a tool when it is an apparently insanely difficult way to do something ANY editor has a standardised way of doing. And that "understanding" problem comes in the way of learning. So hold back on teaching vi until they are motivated to learn it (e.g when they need to change a config file over a terminal connection). Your comparison with variables is IMHO faulty - the concept of variables is much easier to understand, and it is much easier to be motivated to learn it. I learned my way around variables at 14, no sweat. At 20, (3 programming languages later) I was introduced to vi and but at 35 I still avoid using it unless I absolutely have to.
but the adjustments don't follow a clear pattern from 6 to 7 NOK for cheapest apps, from 8 to 9 NOK for itunes songs, Apples own keynote, pages and numbers are up from 109 to 112(iPad) TomTom Europe is up 53% (!) to 840 NOK http://www.macstories.net/news/itunes-connect-maintenance-could-mean-apple-is-eventually-recalibrating-international-itunes-prices/ explains the previousprice differences
Speaking of Ubuntu, this move screws them as well. FF is their current default browser. Will they be able to convince enterprises to go Ubuntu LTS if it is shipped with FF? Some distros may ditch FF because of this move, as enterprise support services are a major funding source for distros.
So we have an ex-comedian http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mel_Smith quoted by a _British_ tabloid quoted by Gizmodo quoted by Slashdot. Now that is what I call reliable info.
If I gave you some random code, did not tell you what exactly it did but asked you to run it, would you run it?
if it comes with free Pr0n? Hell yeah!
It's clearly irresponsible to expose kids to some rulers; Saddam Hussein, Joseph Stalin and under certain conditions George W Bush
And then there would be plaintiff's legal fees, which, although the RIAA legal team might _sound_ like a broken record, would be substantially more than
.99 per 3 minute "track"
I was provoked by Mr Browns statement which completely failed to mention Alan Turings contribution to computing science. The statement only addressess his war effort. By not recognizing Turing's contribution to science, Brown elegantly but cowardly avoids the issue of whether Turing deserves a nighthood or not (war heroes seldom get nighted). Indeed, the Enigma cracking helped saved the Europe I live in but at the same time it helped spawn the technology that is my passion and my paycheck.
"Black Boxes" are made to survive all kinds of unbelievable crashes, impacts, fires, explosions, etc.. Instead, these brainiacs are going to use something that breaks if it drops out of your pocket. Way to go, guys.
Relax, it's a White Box.
