... we are way past the year of Linux in your pocket.
A Linux that Android users neither see nor use, a Linux that most Android developers neither see nor use. Linux is just hosting the Android environment.
Sort of like the Linux on my desktop. Linux is not a GUI, it is a kernel. The last time I "saw Linux" was a kernel panic about a year ago.
I agree - anyone ever getting any real replies on those sites?
I did - from my (now) wife.
The GPL works in servers because the money isn't in the software, its in hosting and hardware. it works in embedded because Google is able to make money from ads (and they refuse to go near GPL V3 as they lock down more and more of Android) but just as you will NEVER in a million years see a triple A video game that is GPL so too will Linux go nowhere on the desktop thanks to GPL.
I'll just leave this here..
That game was open sourced after id Software made millions of dollars from it, and after their next game was released. I do believe the discussion is about releasing a new AAA game using the GPL.
Red Hat makes more than a billion on FOSS.
And they do this by targeting corporate desktops and servers, making money on services. Did you read the post to which you are replying?
Foods you pick off of the vine contain these things. The fact that something on the shelf might also contain them doesn't make it inherently bad.
Processed foods not only tend to contain high levels of bad stuff, they have the double whammy of also containing less good stuff. All those vitamins and minerals that appear in natural foods? Processed out of processed foods.
Look up the history of "fortified" foods. Manufacturers spend time and energy removing nutrients from foods, then more time and energy adding them back in.
So long as it's unloaded and the ammo is somewhere you can't readily get to (ie. the trunk), they couldn't bust you for a gun in your car. They might get you for the hidden compartment though.
Depends on the state. In Ohio, where I live and where the article is about, the law is quite clear. If you have a concealed carry license you can carry it loaded and concealed (or open) in the driver's seat. If you do not have a CCW, the gun must be unloaded and in the trunk or other locked compartment outside the cabin (e.g. truck lock box). The ammunition can be anywhere except where the gun is. So you put the gun in a bag in the trunk, and the ammunition in a bag up front.
Seriously, if I had a secret compartment in my car, I would keep a copy of the King James Bible, a copy of the Constitution and Bill of Rights, and a registered handgun in there.
Not in Ohio, where this arrest took place: while there is a law about secret car compartments, it is illegal for any government, state or local, to establish a gun registry per the Ohio Revised Code. So there would be no place to register your handgun.
This law is stupid, but the gun laws in Ohio are overall above average in my opinion.
January 2013 I wound up in the ER due to a probable allergic reaction to Amoxicillin. I was suffering anaphylaxis...
I forgot to mention this in my original post, but my wife gave me the best diagnosis that day as she drove me to the ER in blizzard conditions: "Wreck-It Ralph hands." They almost had to cut my wedding ring off my hand.
I am a 23andme member and my genetic test showed that I am sensitive to warfarin. That's something I never knew before. If I ever get into a situation where that drug is used, having informed the doctor of this potential problem just might have saved my life. There is no possibility that this information could result in any harm, because if the doctor gives a lower than normal dose and it's not effective, he can simply give more.
What if the test is incorrect? You claim that there's no risk because the doctor can just titrate the dosage up, but if you have a time sensitive condition then the extra time required to adjust the dosage up could result in irreparable harm to your health. E.g. you get a stroke or thrombosis while the dosage is being adjusted.
If I were going to use a test like this, I would use the test, then go talk to my primary care physician with the results along with my known, diagnosed family history and my own medical history before I need urgent care. That way we can look it over and decide what the best course of action is. Maybe this is saying "thanks captain obvious, two people in my family died from this, it was a known risk at birth." Maybe the answer is "this is plausible, it requires further testing using more accurate methods." Maybe the answer is "this is batshit insane, forget about it." Regardless, this is not taking the results at face value, but reviewing them carefully, one by one, with a trained physician along with my family and personal history.
That being said, half the time medicine is a crapshoot anyway. January 2013 I wound up in the ER due to a probable allergic reaction to Amoxicillin. I was suffering anaphylaxis, stopping short of the most severe symptom (throat closure) due to quick reaction and prompt administration of drugs. This could have been a one time occurrence, or it could have been a drug allergy that I developed all of a sudden. I spoke with a specialist who basically said "I can test you but it will cost money, is not very accurate, and in the end you're best off just not taking Amoxicillin and assuming you are allergic." So, meh. Even the "real" medical tests are not 100% accurate and worthwhile.
He wouldn't be arrested, they don't have to do that in America anymore - they "detain" you.
Citation needed. Never heard of a single instance of such thing happening in my 40 years of living in the USA.
Ever hear of this guy who spent years in jail being tortured before facing charges? He is even a U.S. citizen -- Julian Assange is not.
Not sure if "campus police" qualify for that however.
Depends on the university, specifically, if they are private or public. At Cleveland State University, campus police are government agents that carry the full force of law (and unlike some jurisdictions these are good guys looking out for people and not jack-boot thugs). They can pull you over and write tickets, student or not, as long as you are in their 22 or so block area. They can arrest you for peeing in the Engineering building, and you will spend the night in a pound-me-in-the-ass county jail run by Cleveland Police (who really don't fuck around, they police the ghetto).
And some campus police out in the country have to deal with stuff like "dropped my donut, have to grab another."
The kernel's bug database shows almost 2500 open bugs right now.
All projects slowly accumulate those hard-to-fix bugs, or the "maybe later" bugs, or the "not interesting right now", bugs. Periodically every project needs to have that cruft cleaned up.
In my experience, many of those are esoteric bugs that affect one or two people in weird situations, perhaps with a custom kernel patch applied (i.e. method works correctly unless you mod calling code to pass an otherwise invalid parameter). I wonder what the breakdown is between bug types and severity.
Spending two months fixing those bugs might be a minor annoyance to some of the kernel maintainers but would be a godsend to people who have been waiting a very long time for low priority and low interest kernel bug fixes.
I agree, somtimes it is good to clean up even the low priority bugs which impact a small number of total use cases, but could be huge: imagine if there were some "minor" bugs which impact embedded devices such as cable routers. For my home file server the bug is nothing, but could cause a security nightmare for someone who runs custom router software. Linux is too useful in too many places to ignore this many bug reports.
In Virginia, speed over 90mph is automatically classified as reckless driving (and the punishment can exceed the punishment for DUI). I don't know if any of the states he did go through have similar laws.
In Ohio, 20 over the posted limit is reckless driving, but it is up to the police officer. My last speeding ticket was 48 in a 25. While I received two points, I was not cited for reckless driving. My last ticket was "failure to control" because I hydroplaned and totaled my car, traveling 55 in a 70 in heavy rain. It also incurred two points, but was not reckless driving. Typically in Ohio, cops give reckless driving citations in conjunction with something like a DUI, running from police, hitting a pedestrian or stationary object, or a judge may tack on the charge if the law allows it and the officer did not already cite it.
I understand that, but suppose an average person driving is an average car down the highway at highway speeds. Imagine two scenarios. One, that average driver is hit by someone traveling 10-15 MPH faster. Two, that same average driver is hit by someone traveling 50 MPH faster. Let's speculate. Both vehicles will suffer some kind of adverse effects (e.g., tire damage, suspension, drivers position causing incorrect input, drivers reacting incorrectly and creating incorrect input) on their attitudes. Losing attitude control at highway speeds is almost always catastrophic. Either way, the drivers are fucked. On the bright, the higher speed collision is more likely to result in death rather than agonizing and debilitating disfigurement.
I learned this physics lesson quite well when I hyrdroplaned at 55 MPH in July 2013 and hit the leading edge of a guardrail rear first. Thankfully the impact pushed me INTO my seat, and I was alone in the car (an hour earlier I had my children with me). The sheer force of spinning and rapidly decelerating knocked me the fuck out. I remember a loud "metal grinding" sound that was my rear bumper folding up and demolishing 20 feet of guardrail, and I remember spinning. Then I woke up at the bottom of a ditch.
Ever since I have been more careful (not not a pussy) while driving in the rain. I measure my tires' tread depth on a regular basis. That is one experience I never want to repeat again. And that was at 55 MPH (in a 70 zone). If I were hit by an assclown going twice my speed even on dry pavement? That is four times the force. Four times the pain, four times the brain scrambling in a spin. I may write software for a living, but I respect physics.
