For anyone else wondering, you want the second link on the Wikipedia disambiguation page.
So what's stopping space itself from contracting that fast, ie reducing the distance between two points?
You have got to be joking.
Please tell us how you got on building and running something even as basic as MIDlets with OpenJDK.
No. That is wrong and ridiculous.
If the GP does happen to get rear-ended it will be completely the fault of the 'tard for failing to drive their vehicle responsibly. People who pay so little attention need to be removed from the roads before they kill someone at the next intersection they come across. Fault will NOT be with the GP who was driving correctly. The aforementioned 'tard would have hit them when everyone in front had to slow down a bit for a car pulling off anyway.
Look, the ripple effect you seem to keep going on about is nothing more than an additive constant.
Example: A car pulls in front of you. Could be a highway or in the middle of a city - doesn't matter.
Response: You give them enough room, adjusting your speed as necessary to keep your distance behind them the same as you had to the car that was in front of you previously. In dry conditions that is about two seconds - ie a stationary object (road marker, post, roadkill) after being passed by the car in front will take two seconds to be passed by you.
Effect: The only impact this will have on the traffic behind you is that their journey is further delayed by (length of new car) + (distance new car is following traffic IN FRONT OF IT). By delay here, I of course mean as measured in distance, not time. This is a constant length. The traffic is still going at the same speed as before, assuming the new car keeps up, so no problem.
Driving really close to someone when you are paying attention is far less dangerous than causing scores of other drivers behind you to slam brakes, many of whom may be followed by people that were not paying attention.
Correct. And also totally irrelevant. No one maintains a safe distance from the car in front (two seconds in dry conditions) by repeatedly barrelling up and suddenly braking. That would be, as you say, dangerous.
If you are not willing to drive close to someone that forced themselves in front of you, then you are saying you are an inattentive driver, and basically unsafe to drive on modern roadways.
What do you mean by this? That if someone pulls in front of you, you're obliged, by some code, to sit on their tail? I hope that's not what you're saying because that is downright irresponsible and I suggest that any person who advocates such practises is "unsafe to drive on modern roadways".
Is this really what's been advocated in the US now? Deprecate travelling at a safe distance in order to fill the roads with tailgaters? And that is supposed to *save* time? Are gridlock jams and accidents no longer a problem in that country?
Would anyone other than SuperKendall here care to chime in?
Well if the fate of Camino with Gecko is anything to go by: not very.
Well put! In a capitalistic society, with a farcical two-party federal election every few years, the most effective way to vote is with ones wallet.
To everyone who has given these groups money - you let this happen.
That's true, and I guess it's my fault for using such a simplistic example.
Suppose the URL is not one so simple. Like this thread for example, or any other page deep within its respective site. A partially filled in form, perhaps, or YouTube video running in the background.
Switch to tab is indeed useless for a casual user, but is very useful when one has several hundred tabs open across several windows and wants to switch to a particular one quickly:
CTRL-T (opens a new blank tab)
wait half a second
down-arrow to "Switch to Slashdot.org tab"
new blank tab closes neatly
You're looking at Slashdot.org
I don't see anything about this in the PDF, so I'll ask the Hive Mind here:
How does this affect distributed computing efforts such as Folding@Home and the BOINC project?
These have very little node-to-server and zero node-to-node communication. With F@H already on the petaFLOP scale I wouldn't think it all that unlikely that it would reach exaFLOP level in less than a decade if interest keeps up.
Yes. They are paid a wage from your taxes already. Since they are ostensibly an elected representative it is immoral (and should be illegal) for them to receive any monetary gifts while in power.
I don't get why all the hate for something as inane as a download box.
Now removing the protocol from URLs, that is downright irresponsible though it like many other regressions can thankfully be reversed in about:config (TrimURLs=false in this case).
Other regressions are not so easily fixed; the braindead decision to remove the status bar for example needs an extension (status4evar) to fix.
Here's what I do:
1. Have sshd listen on a non-standard port (ie NOT 22)
2. apt-get install fail2ban - lock the
3. Use pam_listfile to whitelist what accounts can log in with SSH
4. Explicitly disable SSH root access in sshd_config
