The early prototype fast neutron reactors in the UK had issues with handling of the coolants, and are proving very expensive to decommission. Irradiated light metals coating the insides of pipes are difficult to deal with apparently. It's probably nothing that couldn't be solved with additional R&D, but how long before it actually pays off? The UK gave up on it before getting to a viable level.
A standard US outlet is only rated at 13A and the voltage can be up to 120V, so your kettle will be rated at about 1500W at 120V, and therefore will have a 9.6 Ohm element. If you happen to have 110V where you are, it will be running at 1260W which will take even longer to boil.
It must take longer to boil water in the US then. In Aus a standard electric kettle has a 2.4kW resistive heating element. I bet little things like that would be most irritating for someone making the transition to a 100-125V country.
I think you mean "fucking magnets" - how do they work?
I think s/he is trying to make a point that African crises are largely confined to Africa. They haven't started any world wars, operated oppressive colonies in remote places, etc.
I had persistent bluescreens that I tracked down to an overheating SAS controller. It was not a pleasant experience. It's been pretty stable since then, though.
No it isn't, at least not on OSX. On OSX by default it uses no proxies at all, and you have to dig into that preference sheet to enable it at all. Then it doesn't always switch properly when changing networks.
You're very much a minority case. Most people want system-wide proxy settings. It annoys me that Firefox needs its own proxy settings. I want to set/change proxy settings once and have all my applications switch over. I don't want to have to mess with per-application settings.
Get your FLOSS personalities right: Eric S Raymond is the gun nut.
Competition's never a bad thing. I'll take three viable web browsers over two. No-one wants to go back to the days of sites targeting specific browsers. "Best experienced with Netscape" - screw that.
From my experience so far, IE11 with default settings renders far more like Firefox/Safari than any prior version of IE. A lot of the brokenness probably comes down to web apps detecting IE, then serving content designed for old, broken IE. When new, standards-compliant IE becomes more widespread, people can just remove the code for supporting bad old IE altogether.
The popular OM derivatives exchange platform (used by ASX, HKFE, SGX, OSE, etc.) used to run on VMS, but they already moved it to Linux a few years ago.
That was my first though, too.
Wow. Glad you got that out. You and the other four guys on the internet that are 1) from a non-US country and 2) like to bitch about every fucking submission that doesn't follow euro standards really gotta get that out or you'll die right?
He claims to have paid in sterling - they don't use sterling in Europe. Learn your geography, goddamn ignorant Americunt. He's not European, he's a Britfag.
There are a bunch of DVD-based adult mahjong games there. Dumps of these are quite rare.
