All of us stoners have seen desperate times and desperate actions but frankly mate you've taken the biscuit
He did?! I was wondering where that last biscuit went.
This is something I did for several weeks in a row, but the last time was at least two years ago -- and yet as recently as last month I've had some of the folks that participated bring it up and comment how much they learned from it. If you think about it, it's basically pair programming on steroids.
Just last week I was out to lunch with three other male coworkers. One of them said to another "What, did your sisters dress you up like a ballerina as a child?" -- They are in their 40s. This just goes to show you how far into life these stereotypes go.
The answer doesn't lie in making boys' toys more girly or girls' toys more boyish. We have to change how society thinks if we want to truly allow for equality in genders. As you can see from every single Slashdot thread on this topic, we have a long way to go, or perhaps we have the wrong goal.
it specifies that 5G networks should provide data speeds of up to 20Gbps -- 20 times faster than 4G
I just get so sick of marketing speak. "Up to" could mean anything here -- setting an upper limit of 20gbps is useless. Tell me what the average speed I can expect will be, at least then I can have some idea what I'll actually get.
Around here, it gets so humid in the summer that we had to swim to get to school.
Upstream both ways!
Yeah. You could probably replace the thing with a raspberry pi
.... at each location ... with a custom controller card.. and another one to control them all... for about $5,000 $2M ? Someone's pork barrel overfloweth.
Well, you do have to find someone to do that work, and pay them, and also pay them to warranty their work when it inevitably breaks. Nothing costs just parts, you have to include labor and the example you just gave is all custom (which is exactly what they've got now, just with modern hardware). $2M may be too much but why don't you go submit your bid for $5k and let me know how that works out for you.
