Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
Jokes aside, most of us live in areas that are not prone to hurricanes, tornadoes, earthquakes, or Godzilla.
I have to ask where you found an Eden untouched by man-made or natural disasters. Where there is drought there is fire. In a warming world, storms may be fewer but stronger and farther reaching.
The radio you have in hand is more useful than the one you shoved into the glove compartment last winter with batteries now deader than dead.
Yeah, the architecture changes screwed the entire modding world. Maybe someday they'll finally have a proper mod API and proper support.
Perhaps someone should write a mod that redundantly reimplements Minecraft on top of Minecraft with as few calls into actual Minecraft code as possible. Still dependent enough to require the actual game but with such little contact area that it's almost completely isolated from changes to the game itself.
Yeah, it'd basically be a fork that attempts to solve the rights issues by requiring the main game. You'd lose anything Mojang adds to the game later (unless it's ported over) but the API could be designed to be long-term stable...
The kid admitted the stunt was meant to embarrass a teacher he disliked --- and a three day suspension for a previous access violation taught him nothing.
The problem is that a substitute was teaching that day who had no way of knowing whether or not this "harmless prank" would escalate into something that could cost the man his job.
Pre-Trial Intervention, which, under Florida law works something like probation, will leave the boy without a criminal record --- if he has the sense to stay out of trouble.
ESAB was supposed to reinforce Michoud's floor before installing the welding tool, but did not, NASA SLS Program Manager Todd May told SpaceNews after an April 15 panel session during the 31st Space Symposium here. As a result, the enormous machine leaned ever so slightly, cocking the rails that guide massive rings used to lift parts of the 8.4-meter-diameter SLS stages The rings wound up 0.06 degrees out of alignment, which may not sound like much, "but when you're talking about something that's 217 feet [66.14 meters] tall, that adds up," May said.
Asked why ESAB did not reinforce the foundation as it was supposed to, May said only it was a result of "a miscommunication between two [Boeing] subcontractors and ESAB."
It is baffling how everyone at NASA, Boeing, and ESAB could have forgotten to do the reinforcing, even though it was specified in the contract. It also suggests that the quality control in the SLS rocket program has some serious problems.
Replace "tweet" with "stand up and announce" and "laptop" with "metal pipe" and the story becomes "Man stands up in aircraft cabin and announces he 'could disable flight instruments' with metal pipe." Not that he necessarily was going to. Just that he could...and he's got to the tool to do so right here...kinda maybe thinking about it...
How would it be "unreasonable" to seize the man's metal pipe on the spot? No warrant required.
Let's fill out your analogy more completely...
* An expert researcher on the use of metal pipes for their use in disabling various things
* Who had done known research on the use of metal pipes for disabling aircraft instruments
* Which is interesting because it's not generally known or understood that metal pipes can disable aircraft instruments
* Is going to a conference to give a talk (on the use of metal pipes for disabling aircraft instruments?)
* Announces -- to fellow professionals in the field of disabling things with metal pipes -- that he knows how it's possible to use metal pipes to disable flight instruments, contrary to the general understanding
Yep, no matter how you dice it, detaining the fellow and seizing his metal pipe still seems ludicrous.
So far their acclaimed commitments seem to be mostly fluff with very little real substance in them..
How about completely opening
I think it's close to 100%, on mac+linux. When Microsoft open-sourced their VB+C# compilers a year ago, Miguel was on stage as well to show it running on mac.
