Yes, thank you. Sorry, I thought it was obvious.
We are in a total lockdown. No one gets in or out.
The first Altos were built as research prototypes. By the fall of 1976 PARC’s research was far enough along that a Xerox product group started to design products based on their prototypes. Ultimately ~1500 were built and deployed throughout the Xerox Corporation, as well as at universities and other sites. The Alto was never sold as a product but its legacy served as inspiration for the future.
With the permission of the Palo Alto Research Center, the Computer History Museum is pleased to make available, for non-commercial use only, snapshots of Alto source code, executables, documentation, font files, and other files from 1975 to 1987. The files are organized by the original server on which they resided at PARC that correspond to files that were restored from archive tapes. An interesting look at retro-future."

It's interesting that the shipping industry never seems to learn. They continue to bring on more and more capacity while shipping prices are at historic lows.
Perhaps the plan is to flood the market with even cheaper capacity and drive a bunch of competition out of business so they can raise rates later... Then the cycle will start all over again.
Genetically modifying such genes is unlikely to happen any time soon
Alpha children wear grey. They work much harder than we do, because they're so frightfully clever. I'm really awfuly glad I'm a Beta, because I don't work so hard. And then we are much better than the Gammas and Deltas. Gammas are stupid. They all wear green, and Delta children wear khaki. Oh no, I don't want to play with Delta children. And Epsilons are still worse. They're too stupid to be able to read or write. Besides they wear black, which is such a beastly colour. I'm so glad I'm a Beta.
Other android smartphones flash drives with OTG cables out of the box, why don't you?
85 KW*hr in 5 minutes is about a megawatt of power. Even at 10,000 volts, you're talking 100 amps.
That's not nearly enough. I need three orders of magnitude more than that to power my flux capacitor.
Your stuff stays stowed below 10,000 feet so you don't get tangled up in your earbuds, tablet, Ken Follet paper brick as your trying to exit the plane should the unthinkable happens.
It's not the safety drill that is the issue here.
I am fairly certain I would be in jail if I committed the same crime.
Because you are little people.
I didn't realize she was under-age when I saw the headline. A few quick Google searches later, and I'd unwittingly accessed what counts as child porn.
Serious, Slashdot editors, this title needs a fix to include a warning, like instantly.
The title does not need fixing.
Your idiotic laws do. Like instantly.
There's a "Left" in the US?
Pull the knife out first. Then ask him to throw down his gun and fight like a man
When you have to shoot, shoot, don't talk.
This is really pretty simple. If the funding isn't available to send you to a conference in Vegas -- You don't go. Or if you want to go you pick up the tab.
It seems that you can't afford to go and your employer doesn't see value in sending you.
Life sucks get a helmet.
I hate stuff like this. I hate it because it is crooked and evil. I hate it because there is very little recourse for the average citizen to make against an attack like this.
But you won't do anything to stop it.
Contact your congress reps, local and federal. Try to get them to change the law. What is happening in these stories should be illegal.
They won't do anything to stop it either.
It is recent computer scientists that started
Not "computer scientists". Just C programmers. The first two languages designed, Fortran and Cobol, start at 1. Algol('68) and all the languages descended from or influenced by it let the programmer set the starting bound (this includes Ada, Pascal and all the other Wirth languages).
Pretty much every language that uses 0 as the only allowable starting index is either descended from C, or borrowed large amounts of its syntax from it. (Some BASICs use 0, but that language is so egregiously unstandardized that its tough to say anything about it with certainty).
That's because C does not have arrays, they are just syntactic sugar for pointers. array[index] is another way of writing *(pointer + offset)
Therefore: a == *(a+5) == *(5+a) == 5[a]
