Tier 1 are never more than script and flowchart readers. They can't solve anything needing anything more than "reboot your computer".
The Three Laws of Telecoms:
1. They will Overpromise
2. They will Underdeliver
3. They will Overcharge
These have proven true over and over and over again year after year. Telecom providers, be it phone or data are the seedy underbelly of the IT industry.
Sourceforge might as well be The SCO Group now with what it's done with it's reputation. And I don't see how bundling spyware with GPL'ed code isn't a GPL violation.
I know I'll never download anything there again.
What is the difference between buying a fully leveled character and using a bot to make one?
And I've played grindy MMOs before, when you get good at it (the grinding) your actions aren't easy to tell from a bot anyway.
They keep telling me that Christians are violent fascists and islam is the Religion of Peaceâ
Used to indicate that you are a noob idiot with PC's on the internet.
Now it indicates that you are STILL a noob idiot with a PC on the internet with gray hair.
From what I've been reading about the case she was paid MORE than her peers and got passed over for promotion because she is a bitch.
Women make less than men over their careers because they have babies, and that process requires taking a lot of time off work. It's a fact of life. If you don't like it, sue God.
Fewer women will get hired. Period.
Whenever you make hiring a particular person (woman, minority, gay, etc) riskier because of lawsuits, fewer such people will be hired. I know that if I were doing the hiring (and I do) this kind of risk would factor into my thinking. Would I say anything, would I put it in writing? Absolutely not, I'm not an idiot.
What Ellen Pao is doing with her lawsuit is making herself unemployable. And an anchor around Reddit's neck.
No one should have to perform INVOLUNTARY SERVICE for anyone.
A Christian baker should not have to bake a wedding cake for a gay "marriage". Likewise, should a muslim photographer be forced to photograph it?
For that matter a gay baker shouldn't have to bake a cake for a real marriage.
Freedom of association. It's in the Constitution.
Your question about white dwarfs is spot-on though because those stars are pretty much what #49246567 describes. A star fuses enough hydrogen that the mass of its outer layers drops off, inner reactions then push that layer outward to form a red giant, the red giant sheds those outer layers, and a white dwarf is that hot, deuterium-rich star left behind. That star then cools and dims over time.
Not all stars that were large enough to do core hydrogen fusion become red giants. Most red dwarf stars won't because they are fully convective, meaning that they will fuse almost all of their hydrogen in the "core" and not have hydrogen fusion in the shell (and no red dwarf has enough mass to do helium fusion). When low mass red dwarf stars run out of gas they simply pass directly to the white dwarf stage (burnt out core)
White dwarf and neutron stars are the remnants of stars that had core fusion during the main sequence.
Brown Dwarf stars never had core hydrogen fusion and thus are failed stars. The smallest thing you can truly call a star is a Red Dwarf because they at least have core hydrogen fusion.
I was going to say much the same thing. If it doesn't do (or didn't do in the past in the case of white dwarfs) hydrogen fusion in the core is it really a star?
I don't think that it is. Just being massive enough to emit some energy isn't enough. Jupiter, for example, gives off some heat but no one would argue that it's a star.
Milky Way is larger than Andromeda? Andromeda has always been thought to be larger, but I recall an article a couple years back saying they thought the Milky Way was larger than previous thought but not 50%...
Great Scott! It appears I've been leading a sheltered life thanks to AdBlock, Ghostery and the like. I did not expect that level of douchebaggery from them, though. Well, hope AdBlock is ready for this.
Yeah, it's like the HORROR the web looks like when you are working on an end user's PC and they only have Internet Exploder.
I guess there will be HTML5 blocker extensions soon.
And I'll use them. Why? I hate ads. To me there is NO SUCH THING as an acceptable ad. I will never surf without ad blockers running. And if you don't like it, take your site offline.
