Now the puzzle box in that movie had a name, didn't it... that's right, the Lament Configuration. Oh look! It's a survey option!
Nah, more likely an increase in retirement rate amongst COBOL programmers, requiring fresh blood to maintain the ageing applications.
Yeah, can't really pause an online game, as you can't pause time.
Sadly it's come to the point where my phone (SGS3) has more RAM than my e-mail server (512MB VPS with CentOS7).
Nah, Australia is a loser pays legal system, so it's easy to get lawyers to take on easy cases like that on a no-win no-fee basis.
They can write all kinds of things into employment contracts but they may not be legally enforceable. For example in Australia an employer may claim ownership of an employee's inventions/patents relating to their core business, but not all inventions/patents in general.
I think you might be inebriated: it's malted barley and hops. In fact, I'm pretty sure you can't malt hops.
The Samsung camera uses an inverted sensor, which loses less light in the silicon, so it can get lower noise with smaller pixels. It isn't a direct result of a smaller process size.
Really? My (straight) brother's experience as a nurse was that older female colleagues were like, "What are you doing here? this isn't a man's job!" while younger female colleagues hit on him all the time.
GGP said "NES developer", and none of those are NES games, all are from later generations. And it is true that Rare developed some shitty games for NES that were published by LJN.
Ah yes, chatting to schoolgirls on kmail web chat. Those were the days...
The upper 32 bits of the current timer value are latched into the register at the upper address when the lower 32 bits are read from the lower address.
Well in that case, you'd need to ensure the lower 32 bits are read first so you're reading the upper 32 bits that you latched this time through, not last time through. And if that's the case, the code is still wrong because there's nothing to force a sequence point between the two reads. The compiler is free to re-order the two reads in that expression.
Hedge funds employ lots of tech people. Someone has to write trading strategies, systems for getting generated orders to the brokers/exchanges, systems for assigning trades to accounts, and the glue that holds it all together. They also need an army of IT operations, support and security staff to keep the beast running.
If you stop option ROMs from loading, you can say goodbye to using external SAS adaptors, bootable NICs, etc. It might be OK if all you ever plug in is external displays, but you'd lose all sorts of functionality.
I've experienced 50'C outside in Finley once. It makes you feel horribly lethargic, just don't want to do anything.
