Oh rubbish. With a decent setup 4W goes a long way. Anyway, most people ran linears even back in the day though most also didn't have a clue what SWR was and wondered why they kept burning out. Muppets.
UK CB channels went from 27.6 to 28Mhz. Only in the 90s was the US/EC band legalised too.
... they just called it CB.
In theory a great idea, in practice you got a load if halfwit teenagers and other dimwits who had nothing to say keying up over people trying to have a sensible conversation and generally causing a nuisance. What with them and the people who seemed to think playing music from a crappy cassette tape into the mic suddenly turned their bedroom rig into Kiss FM eventually made CB unusable and it died (in the UK anyway) apart from the occasional diehard and some truckers.
Perl was used because it was a powerful scripting language despite a god awful syntax that took the worst parts of unix shell and awk and made them even more painfully contorted. When an equally (some would say more) powerful scripting language called Python came along with a sane syntax, a shallower learning curve and a properly interactive interpreter its no surprise huge numbers of people jumped ship.
I for one won't miss Perl - it had its day but its day is pretty much done apart from legacy code and the few dyed in the wool web sites still using CGI.
It might be fashionable in academia and certain CS circles but I've never once seen it used commercially in 20 years of working in IT. Now maybe I've not worked in the right sort of companies but I've worked for some pretty big blue chip ones and small houses so I reckon I've got a good spread of experience there.
... from someone hitching a lift on the side of the road and paying for the ride? Taxis should be licensed otherwise you could end up getting in a car with any uninsured nutcase driving some unsafe POS.
They survived in a hostile ice age climate for eons before we turned up. You don't manage that unless you A) Have a heavily adapted physiology (eg mammoth) or B) Are damn smart.
Anyway, the fact that apparently we interbred with neanderthals and the DNA got passed on - ie the offspring weren't sterile - means they were almost certainly the same species as us - probably just a different race. And we know how well races meeting can turn out.. If anyone wants to know why the died out , well maybe thats a clue.
"WE DON'T WANT NUCLEAR POWER!"
Who is "we"? A bunch of noise making 20 something hippies?
... they have a very backwards, almost medieval view of anything nuclear.
Also I'm sure that idiot Merkel decided to close all their nuclear power stations because she thought they'd get nice cheap gas from russia. Hmm, wonder how thats working out for her now...
I dunno so much these days. Its 10 years old and got a few miles on the clock plus collection for the new owner would be an issue. On the plus side vandalism won't be a worry. For a few centuries anyway.
... you're not cool. Period. Sorry.
Right, because obviously with a board like this someone is going to try and create a Call of Duty clone rather than say some sort of controller system.
The OS doesn't need protection if the browser is running with normal user privs. If the OS is windows it might need extra help, I wouldn't know, but linux does not and I have no interest in googles feeble reasons for requiring root privs. A user app that requires root privs is not going on my systems. Period.
"Now dont discuss this subject any more unless you learn at least a few basic things."
You should follow your own advice. Most brown dwarves are glowing away nicely in infrared. If there were triillions of them they'd be lighting up the sky in that band. They arn't, so unless something has cooled them all down to absolute zero (yeah, right), they don't exist. Back to school for you.
"running the simulation of our universe can move information instantaneously"
Quantum action at a distance anyone?
