Is attaching a FAX to a paper shredder considered prior art?
The "jumpiness" you experience without it is simply your eyes trying to fix on any number of objects as you are panning (my layman's interpretation).
That is actually my understanding as well. The brain wants to focus on what it has been trained to be the most pertinent objects, so it just jumps from object to object. I am fairly certain this is why people that are put under deep hypnosis can recall details of a situation that they can't do consciously. I don't think the brain discards that information, I think it is like off screen rendering that still gets saved to RAM
I tried your finger trick, and while it was definitely smoother, it still was not like watching a 48 or 60fps video.
Anyone that has done mushrooms can tell you that seeing the world at the frame rate that the brain is capable of processing is a load of fun. I have no idea how psilocybin affects the visual processing center of the brain -- or hell, it may affect the eye itself, what I do know is stepping out into a room and looking around without the brain discarding the frames that it doesn't feel like processing is amazing. However, it does look completely fake. It is too clear / crisp. Our brains aren't used to seeing every little change -- they discard information. So, if you are watching a movie at 48 or 60fps, it looks fake is the best way I can describe it. That is because when you are looking at the screen, you have a central place to focus, and my guess is the brain doesn't discard information if you aren't moving.
Again, this is just my guess, but I think the reason video games look much better at high frame rates is the fact that they already don't look realistic. We are expecting really crisp, sharp, fast graphics. Literally -- it is all in your mind.
As a test, pan your head from left to right and notice the "jumpiness" that is reality. Now, eat about a half gram of shrooms, and do the same thing. It is no longer jumpy, and you get a REAL smooth pan.
You do need HTTPS to protect mundane content: Saying otherwise is very short sighted...
You might not care about the content, but the way someone, somewhere, is accessing it, does offer a lot of "value".
It can allow a watchful eye to either accuse the reader of being outside the norm, criminal, not respectful and whatnot (reason why librarians fought hard for the right to lend books without giving the list to the state!) or allow them to caracterise, profile, target a person over time for many different reasons.
Thus everyone should have the to right to read anonymously and willingly.
Witholding this right from others is being complicit with opressors.
Encryption has a cost, it isn't free. It increases CPU utilisation and power consumption. It interferes with caching and reduces network efficiency.
This is a dumb idea. A very dumb idea.
I have two sisters that are complete and total wastes of life. They will snort, pop or inject anything that is put in front of them, I can't stand to be around them. However, it is their bodies and their right to do whatever they please, and I will defend that to my grave.
So, not only are you wanting to tell me what I can and can't do, but also want to tell me what I should or should not believe? And of course you know my political beliefs better than I do. Who the fuck do you think you are? You are a fucking piece of work.
Well since you are so against guns, then kindly please hang yourself. You are what is wrong with this country.
The great thing about your attitude though, is that when revolution happens, it will be much easier for my side to win.
Ultimately Uber is a broker for unlicensed taxi. There should be a restriction on unlicensed taxi on the roads. In other words, I'm surprised they exist anywhere. They really shouldn't, there are very good common sense reasons for insisting on licensed taxi.
This is slashdot, so anything that interferes in the right of someone to make money from a "disruptive" service is communism.
Drug smugglers, paedophilic video distributors and illegal arms salesmen are all just creative entrepreneurs trying to make an honest buck.
Did you really just throw pedophilia in with guns and drugs? *THINK OF THE CHILDREN* you fucking left wing piece of shit. Here is a little cheat sheet for you -- from a Libertarian and a true fucking patriot:
Child porn == BAD == directly harming someone else against their will
Guns == GOOD == Able to defend myself from assholes like you
Drugs == INDIFFERENT == My fucking body, I do with it as I please. If my actions ON drugs interfere with other people, THEN by all means, lock me up.
Get that through your thick fucking skull you anti-American left nut fucking bastard.
Now, with that said. Uber is fucking awesome. They don't need to abide by the laws that are currently in place -- the laws that are currently in place need to go away. If I want to pay my neighbor to drive me to the airport is that OK with you? How about placing an ad on craigslist, is that OK? How about this, it is my fucking money, I will spend it how I please. If I want to buy a hooker -- MY MONEY, THEIR BODY. Got it? I am so tired of mother fuckers like you trying to tell me when, where, how, why I can or cannot spend my money.
Kindly fuck off and move to Canada.
it would make sense to just charge the batteries at night
I'd like to know more about your solar panels that work at night.
I no longer teach my child what is illegal and what is legal (or more to the point, I teach him that just because something is illegal, doesn't make it wrong). I teach him (what I believe) is right from wrong. I also teach him how not to get get caught when doing something that shouldn't be illegal, but is (I also teach him that there are consequences if he DOES get caught). For added bonus, I also teach him how to wreck a little havoc on systems like this. This is pointless, and a complete and total waste of money.
This country has gone to total shit, and I honestly have no clue how to get it back...
Of course, while some games in the archive have been effectively abandoned and even forgotten, others are still popular and actively exploited by their creators, such as games in the Pac-Man franchise. Games from well-known companies such as Capcom, Konami, Namco, Taito, and Sega appear in the list, among many others — around 900, in total.
Archivist Jason Scott writes about the process of getting the Arcade up and running on his personal blog. He explains its purpose like this: "... my hope is that a handful, a probably tiny percentage [of players], will begin plotting out ways to use this stuff in research, in writing, and remixing these old games into understanding their contexts.""

I use my box as an OpenVPN gateway, a "cloud storage" server, a web server, mail server and various other things. So when I connect TO my box the connection is pityful at 5mb. I could easily put 30mb of upstream bandwidth to use. For that matter if they offered a 90/90 plan, then I would upgrade just for the 90mbits up.
