Yeah, I've been there. Worth it for the bushwalking and rock climbing as well as the observatory.
AKG isn't even that great. For pro work these days people are moving to Audio-Technica and Shure.
When H1N1 was spreading around Melbourne, people wouldn't go to the doctor if they thought they had caught it, because if you did and they diagnosed you with it you were legally required to take time off work and isolate yourself. People just didn't want the inconvenience, and taking your chances with swine flu didn't usually kill you. Ebola's a bit more risky to play with.
Seriously, what do you do with your machine? I need to run Photoshop and Lightroom for graphics, Apache, text editors and a collection of browsers for web development, Quartus II for FPGA development... None of this would work on ChromeOS. Do you even use your computer at all?
I thought of the ATA Flash PCMCIA card variant.
I had H1N1 swine flu and my coworker's girlfriend had it. It was pretty widespread in Melbourne. But all it seemed to really do was make people feel like shit for a week. People weren't even taking time off work for it. Yeah, not taking time off work is likely to spread it, but it didn't seem to take out entire offices. It may or may not have been overblown, but it definitely didn't kill anyone I knew.
My LSI SAS controller card has an 800MHz PowerPC processor. Lots of car ECUs use PowerPC. It's anything but dead.
GSM push-to-talk is an abbreviated call establishment sequence with preconfigured recipients. It still runs everything via the base station and hence via the carrier's network, so you'd be paying. If the network didn't advertise the feature as being available it would disable it, even if you bought an unlocked phone directly from Nokia.
"The FOSS community" is tiny. The vast majority of the time Linux is selected for practical or pragmatice reasons. Most people using Linux aren't using it for ideological reasons. There aren't enough people prepared to boycott NVIDIA over this to make a difference. Also, it's firmware that needs to be signed, not drivers.
You conflicted with their ideology and got a "-1 makes me uncomfortable" mod.
Care to substantiate that? I can make the opposite assertion just as easily.
Means that she probably did take some nudies at some point.
So? I've taken nudies of myself and others. It's a natural result of technology combined with curiosity. Nudies are more prolific than ever since with digital cameras you aren't implicitly sharing your pictures with the minilab operator. Why do people make such a big deal of it?
Samsung's packaging for the Galaxy S3 is very slick. Also, Dell's origami packaging for their 4k displays is absolutely brilliant.
Yeah, SVG renderers have more chance of being around in 50 years than WMF or PICT. But you still need to actively go through your data archives, find things in "endangered" formats, and migrate them to more future-proof formats. This requires substantial effort that increases as the collection grows. Then there's verifying that nothing was lost in the conversion to consider.
ImageMagick doesn't support PICT with vector information. I'm just trying to make a point that even if a format seems to be widespread now, it may become effectively useless in the future. Believe me PICT files were everywhere in the classic Mac days.
