It was not. It was an attack using two knights and the queen, while busily sacrificing material as a smokescreen. Very elegantly done.
It was a Rapid game where Carlsen only had half the time to make his moves than Gates had, but neither had very much time at all. Gates was under no illusions as to his chances either - he considered the result to be a forgone conclusion.
Just the headline reminded me of a story I read a couple of years ago. That site needs registration but he also posted it on a site which does not. 99 First Dates. Hilarious.
Warning - Adult Content if you worry about that kind of thing.
If you think Islam = Al Quaeda (sp?) then that is true. Al Q's rejection of the West goes that far.
The information is very well hidden in the FA, but this applies to Canada. The "City of London" will be the one in Ontario. Do decisions of this kind apply in other countries? - I'd guess not.
Elements which can't combine with anyone else, "herding cats" comes to mind.
Several of the others form more-or-less stable molecules- usually with Hydrogen, none had been found for Argon up to now.
The circumstances under which it forms appear to be rather extreme. I don't know enough (ok, anything) about Nuclear Chemistry to know if it is significant that the Isotope is Ar36 rather than the Ar40 we get here. Normally it would make no difference but this is an extreme case.
I don't know if your 1/4 and 3/4 figures are correct, but the problem was that the Court in Köln rubber-stamped this crap and that T-Online (the largest provider in Germany) is based in Köln.
That *is* their business model.
I read up on this yesterday (German Language) and the situation is more complicated than it seems.
The providers affected are all over Germany, so various local courts were involved. The one in Köln really screwed things up: what the people are supposed to have done is Downloaded the file(s), what they were accused of was Sharing them and Köln went along with this. The difference is that the provider does not have to give out addresses on Downloads but they do if Sharing is involved. The actual "Abmahnung" letters which went out said nothing about Sharing at all. The Law Firm based their claim on the Downloads being in Cache so they were available for others. To make things worse, the largest provider in Germany (T-Online) is based in Köln. Other courts rejected that argument, others asked questions and the Lawyers withdrew their request.
I have a related problem at the moment - a couple of years ago someone accused me of sharing some other porno film, again T-Online was involved. My wlan is wpa2 with a 63-byte random, generated mixed upper/lower string and it accepts only one Mac address, I have checked both PCs which were on at the time for Trojans / Virii with a bootable scanner and there was nothing. Under German law there is no redress - if they claim it then I must have done it. I'm fighting this one out at the moment.
For me this is a reason not to use T-Online. My main account is now somewhere else but I *need* Internet for when I work at home and two independent providers (Cable and DSL) made sense back when the Cable provider was unreliable. I think I'm going to have to dump T-Online which means dumping Telekom for my phone.
Firefox if I absolutely have to, but given the chance I open up about:config and reset the critical values. Thinking about it, I should create a user.js file and carry it around on my USB-stick.
A judge who has never used a hammer? Something like this?
Only a tiny, miniscule fraction of companies have French subsidiaries.
"a tiny, miniscule fraction of" = "large, international"
Of course Joe's Pizza Empire does not have a branch in France.
Its like that court in Texas where the Patent Trolls always sue, France has made a few implausible rulings against Google so he went there.
Opensuse dropped sysvinit when the current level came out several months ago. Before that they had defaulted to systemd but allowed sysvinit.
My considered opinion of systemd? I hate it. I don't have a server farm, I have a couple of desktop machines with Samba and nfs capability and sysvinit was ideal.
Spiegel does "wütend" frequently and well. I'm not aware they are any angrier about this than a host of other issues in the past.
What got me here was that Merkel and Friedrich were playing everything down until it was *her* phone being tapped.
