Need frosty piss? There's an app for that1111!!!eleven
And yet it required a remarkable degree of incompetence, a fair amount of luck, and financial and naval support from the French.
I'll bet we have plans to suspend the US Cons after Facebook goes down for 24 hours.
Make it a week and we've got a deal.
The problem with these "emergency modes" is that they run infinitely.
Speaking as a veteran (Not a raging libertarian) I can tell you that you would likely see entire units refuse to fire on American civilians. In fact we are taught to disobey unlawful orders.

Officer: They're cormanusts! And terrusts! And queers, probably.
Dakka-dakka-dak! Dakka-dakka-dakka dak!
"Of course, this comparison is also patently unfair -- Windows 7 was written in the 2000s, X11 was written in the 1980s. Expecting them to be comparable in terms of security is pretty ridiculous."
Which could be a good argument for replacing X. It is rather old technology, perhaps it is time to update it to something newer, rather than clinging to it and claiming it is all one needs.
Western Europe, where 5% of the global population thinks they are most of the world...
I was actually considering a Surface for a brief moment, since to this day, I'd really love to have Writer's Cafe on my Transformer, but it wouldn't run Windows desktop apps, even lightweight ones. I get the whole "different cpu architecture" issue, but seriously, that's the ONE feature that would make a Windows tablet compelling: without it, why bother?
No it's to avoid people looking like idiots with a tablet against their head.
Considering the number of people using their damn iPads as cameras, in the "hold it up, point, and shoot" style, I really think that's not it...
Nonsense. Every carrier offers a bring-your-own-phone plan, and T-Mobile doesn't offer a discount, they just don't offer a subsidized phone option at all. WTF why are you ranting about something you clearly know nothing about?
You're an idiot who can't differentiate between "existence" and "action," and it's because of simpletons like you that the SJWs you hate so much are able to continue to spread their hate, hypocrisy, and propaganda and keep their credibility among the other idiots, who parrot their own bullshit memes right back in and endless cycle of reality-defying masturbation.
Except it's not terribly insightful, nor is it particularly truthful. There's a big gap between "abridging freedom of speech" and "not giving assholes a platform for their bullshit." Let them provide their own, with hookers and blackjack, etc.etc.
It's not any different dropping spammers and that asshole who keeps trying to dictionary attack your SSH teergrube into a blocklist: crying "censorship" because you get smacked down for behaving like a tit isn't "insightful," it just makes you look like a 12 year old.
"more energy efficient for shorter runs". We're talking about elevators, you know, those things that stop every 3 vertical meters.
No we're not. We're talking long-distance elevators. Or do you think someone will ever get to the top floor of a 1km high building if the car stops at every floor. Every time you're almost there, you'll have to stop for a pee break then wait for the car to come back.
Various skyscrapers have extremely high capacity lifts -- the Petronas Towers have double-decker lifts with a capacity of 52 passengers.
