Just wait until we deal with the giant starfish, sentient lobsters and mirror girls.
At 100k units you are barely even getting into hot territory. For most people I'd classify the list as:
350k-800k (Most of your 'hots', brain strains, 7-pot, that sort of stuff)
800k-1m (Bhut Jalokia and other 'superhots')
1m+ (Trinidad Moruga Scorpions and other record holders)
Come on, we all know how we *really* use sudo:
- Set yourself up with the NOPASSWD option in sudoers
- sudo su -
Yeah, my immediate thought was on birds, not insects, but it makes sense for them as well. I see birds picking up all sorts of random trash all the time, and regularly see nests with manmade items in them.
I have a feeling you're dealing with the same issue I am. I've reported it to Google, but years later it still isn't fixed.
I have a normal username (made up example: firstname.lastname@example.org). This other user apparently has "email@example.com". I don't know if they get any mail at all, but I get lots of theirs. I even tested it, sending an email to my address with randomly-inserted periods, and they all end up coming to me.
There is a common phrase in my neck of the woods: "...a level of stupidity that can only be attributed to a college education."
It isn't a knock on the education so much as it is about the sheltered lives far too many college students have led until that point.
The 5th Amendment is yet another example of our founding fathers' attempts to curb tyranny.
I started off on C64s and Apple ][s in middle school, which upgraded to Mac LCs around 8th grade. Started off in BASIC, fiddled with stuff like Hypercard under the Mac.
That summer as I was going into high school my parents got me a Tandy PC1000. Family friends helped me with upgrades, software, etc. I eventually got my hands on a full copy of QuickBASIC, Turbo Pascal, and Turbo C. I wrote my own database app, even wrote my own mouse drivers in assembler, linked them in through C and QB, started expanding my own library of that sort of code.
My first 'paid' gig was for a friend of my father who owned a TV repair business. I wrote a program that monitored a modem to pick up caller ID info and store it in a database; searchable, printed reports, etc. Networked it to pass the caller ID info to PCs in other buildings on his property. My 'payment' was in hardware, software, and 100 packs of 3.5" floppies, which I was more than happy with at the time.
I went to college for CS, but learned more in my job at a research institute on campus than I did in the classes. I actually had a couple professors who, after the first semester with them, just came to me later with "You know this already, don't you? Here's the test schedule, just show up for the exams if you want." I dropped out after a couple years and managed to get a decent job before the first major dot bomb bust.
I did some coding for a year or two after that, but mostly moved up the food chain. Most of my coding these days consists of shell scripts, awk, some PHP, but little 'new development.' Today I effectively operate as a liaison between support teams and development teams since I have the skillset to give a better technical analysis of an issue as well as the coding background to debug issues as well as know what is and is not possible on the dev side.
And the only reason I don't have nearly this many open at work is because I use Chrome, and they still haven't added scrolling tabs; it just keeps shrinking them until they're unusable. I've tried a couple addons for it, but they all sucked. At home I stick to Firefox.
Where's the option for "Tabs have replaced bookmarks for me"? I regularly find myself at 150+ tabs, realize the browser is acting like it's going to crash, so "Bookmark all tabs" to a folder (just in case) and start culling out the ones I haven't used recently.
I'm guessing Onion News Empire is one of them, just started watching the pilot a few minutes ago. A few recognizable actors (not just a bunch of unknowns), funny so far.
Hopefully others work out this well too.
Basically it's a big "fuck you" to the incumbent ISPs and a wake-up call to the public as to how badly we're being screwed by those ISPs. Data caps, incredible markups for marginal speed increases, etc. Google is proving those are all bullshit and still profitable.
I'd gladly sign a petition, and agree it should be mandatory that it be labeled.
However, I personally don't care so much. My only major concern with GMO crops would be pushing terminator genes again and possibly spreading into standard crops.
In other news, it was proposed to put a new tax on airline tickets in order to help sustain the horse & buggy industry.
I did something like this (though more sysadmin stuff than anything), but I worked for a former co-worker who started his own full-time contracting business, mainly web design work. I got paid by the hour for odds and ends, but I was there to relieve his workload and add some fine-point expertise. If something came up support-wise it was on his shoulders to find someone to handle it if I wasn't available. It worked out pretty well for both of us. If I was doing more coding work then it would have been even better as that is where his skills were so he could fully support it himself.
Exactly. Hand someone a Mini-14 and an AR-15 and ask which is more dangerous, and I bet you most anti-gun idiots will pick the AR-15, despite the fact that they are basically the same guns with different furniture.
