These words do not fit together willingly.
Or maybe Google really is being more evil, and a Google monopoly really is a net loss for society.
What is coming, inevitably, is mandatory external override by air traffic controllers. With all the hacking risk that entails, but it is coming.
It wasn't a boxing match.
OpenGL 4 got a bunch of really major improvements, for example, direct state access in 4.5.
According to Netcraft, about 30% of servers run Windows/IIS...
...and those servers serve only 11% of active (not parked) web sites, implying that the average Linux server handles roughly - um - 3.5 times as many active sites as the average Windows server. No wonder there is a brand preference.
You'll be waiting a long time I'm afraid. QWERTY phones aren't coming back.
I'm hanging on to mine (Desire Z). After replacing the battery (ahem) it looks like there are years more life left in it. Sure, I also have a slab-only phone and these days I carry it most of the time, but when I travel the Desire Z with full keyboard is generally more useful by being much faster at communcating.
I am slowly coming to terms with my imminent death, but what bothers me most is that I will be leaving my wife alone, and that my daughter will have to grow up without her father. She is in sixth grade, has an inquisitive and sharp mind, and is interested in science and music. She seems well on the path to becoming a "girl geek" like her mother, an outcome I'd welcome.
Since I will not be around for all of the big events in her life, I am going to create a set of video messages for her that she can watch at those important times or just when she's having a bad day. I would like to do this before my condition progresses to the point that I am visibly ill, so time is short.
In the videos I will make clear how much I treasure the time we've spent together and the wonderful qualities I see in her. What other suggestions do you have? What did you need to hear at the different stages of your life? What wisdom would have been most helpful to you? At what times did you especially need the advice of a parent? And especially for my geek sisters, how can I help her navigate the unique issues faced by girls and women in today's world?
Please note that I'm posting anonymously because I don't want this to be about me. I'd prefer that the focus be on my daughter and how I can best help her. Thank you so much for your help.
