Which isn't all bad... after all, the Bedouins didn't invent nuclear weapons.
Well, in fairness, if you have immortality, warp drive is less of a concern. What's 40,000 years if you live for a billion?
The one think the immortalists seem to miss is there's going to also have to be some huge advances in trauma medicine (unless you're talking we're to the point of uploading consciousness to robot bodies a la Moravec... that's so much change that if it were to happen hypothesizing on its results would be a series of science fiction stories, your guess is as good as mine what would actually happen.) you're not going to live MUCH longer. I can't find the article now, but I remember a statistical study where if you factor out all "natural" death, either murder or accident will get you sooner or later and life expectancy would still only be 5 or 6 centuries.
But why bother using up fuel saving the plane for later use when you can just fly into your target immediately? It's not that easy to land, refuel and take off in a plane that size unnoticed.
You're assuming the desired target is within range...
"The problem with defending the purity of the English language is that English is about as pure as a cribhouse whore. We don't just borrow words; on occasion, English has pursued other languages down alleyways to beat them unconscious and riffle their pockets for new vocabulary."
You're saying that GoG has games on multiple platforms but you only get one platform's install when you buy the game?
No, I am saying that you get two. If I buy for example Strike Suit Zero on GoG I get Mac and Windows versions. If I buy it on Steam I get Mac, Windows and Linux versions. GoG simply doesn't offer Linux versions, even if they exist and the developers are willing to provide them. GoG so far has completely refused to offer any Linux support at all, even so there is absolutely no reason to not have that in this day and age. See also this popular wishlist item:
Title read, but i looked anyway.
Well, it's Friday, Pi day, as i'm sure you know.
But next year will be even so much more so
And a year after that, you can feel rounded
Anyone else wish to hear this expounded?
I'm aware of that. Or at least i should be.
Superiority aside, i want to answer his question, which indeed i did: Thunderbird is good, and they use a standard format. The guy at Microcenter was an idiot.
Still can't find the moderate button. The source has it, so maybe it's a hidden element.
Thanx for the comment.
Thanx, looks ugly and buggy. No RSS? Signed up.
Wow, that does look bad! It's like their moving from document presentation to a controlled media platform. That will either fail or spawn a real "Internet 2.0". Heh, let's go fork the Internet.
I fixed the issue on my side: I deleted all slashdot cookies that had the "beta" in the name. I couldn't even reply with the beta. Moderation will now be coming to a JE near you.
I'm used to it now. Especially with people who have good analytical skills. They really pay attention to details and I can get quite lazy with my speech/writing.
I've stopped using nbcnews.com because they went to this big box look. Then my primary source for local news in my home town switched around and now not only is it impossible to find stuff or read much information, almost all articles go to an autoplay video about the story. I have to wait for it to load and then pause it before I can start reading the article.
I'm pretty much down to the bbc site for news.
