Too bad you posted this anonymously. We need more people that will stand up to this tyranny. Who's watching the watchers?
They should have been tried as adults given the severity of their crimes.
That was super cool.
Have you ever used OS/2? Under a full load, even constantly swapping, it would be very responsive. Rarely did the UI feel like it was lagging. Compare to my windows 7 laptop. Under massive swap or a heavy load sometimes it takes ages just to get the interface to respond so I can switch a task or dial down priority and make the system usable again. That I have to manually turn down the priority of applications that slow my system to a crawl so other tasks can run says a lot about how much windows fails on multitasking compared to better operating systems. I like windows 7, but when I think back to OS/2, I still yearn for something that is as responsive.
I agree with you. The real issue is that a PC has a much narrower bus to move all of that data around. You can throw all the cores in the world in one box, and something like a modern mainframe will still stomp it because it is so much more massively parallel.
We are sliding down the slope even faster.......now students are raised to expect to have no rights. WAKE UP AMERICA!!!!
Indeed. Did you see the other article on how they suspended someone's account for questioning the mainstream media?
NOT! Seriously does anyone else find this extremely disappointing? Our planet is FUCKED. Hello global warming!
Come on slashdot! Get it up!
I might add that I don't think this contractor is licensed if some other comments are correct. So its very likely a fly by night operation, but then again I could be totally wrong.
And that's the rub with this whole thing. Unless we were there and witnessed it, we have no idea what went down. For all we know she is a lying deadbeat. I'm not saying that's the case, and to be honest, I'm more inclined to be sympathetic to her, but without any real evidence its hard to say what really happened here. A review and a lawsuit doesn't tell me much.
Flight 427 was actually the result of a faulty rudder ending up locked in an extreme position. The plane toppled over and plunged straight into the ground. Initial speculation was the wake of another pane as they had not discovered the rudder defect yet.
What a typical politician. Apologizing and then claiming it wasn't an apology. He really needs to get the doublespeak thing down a bit better.
Don't you mean China's improving economy? We've already lost half our middle class. I don't see the improvement unless you count new walmarts progress.
This is hands down the funniest thing I have read on slashdot in ages. Thanks for sharing.
