M$! HA! You used a dollar symbol instead of an 'S' for MicroSoft, that's pretty cleaver, haven't seen that before.
Mark my words, 2013 is the year of Linux on the desktop...
I do the same when I go to America for work, not that I've been to America recently, avoid the place like the plague thanks to your TSA and revised visa bullshit (how many terrorists from New Zealand have attacked America again?!).
When I go to the UK I always go via Asia now as well, far more pleasant experience than via America and it's airports.
Anyway, rant over
> looking at the high wind areas next to metropolises, you have to admit there's some low hanging fruit out there, yeah?
Um, typically metropolises aren't built next to high wind areas. Usually high wind areas are where people don't want to live.
Also, what happens when there's fine weather for a week... You just get people to switch everything off? You can't just turn off and on nuclear/thermal all the time.
Wind is OK when you can balance it with hydro power, otherwise, it's crap.
Cool, so not only does the human have to pull the trigger but the computer also has to allow the shot to be fired. Sounds like a safer solution to me than just letting the person pull the trigger.
I suppose your comeback will be "Oh no! What if I'm getting attacked in my school by a madman with a gun and all I have is my high powered rifle to protect me and the computer has crashed?!"
"Oh no, what if my gun's computer crashes which prevents me from killing wildlife!"
in which case, you have bigger issues than owning a computer powered rifle that crashes.
TrackingPoint is quick to emphasize the rifle doesn't fire "by itself," but rather the trigger's pull force is dynamically raised to be very high until the reticle and pip coincide, at which point the pull force is reset to its default. In this way, the shooter is still in control of the rifle's firing, and at any point prior to firing you can release the trigger. In the mockups the company had on display for the press to experiment with, the action appeared to be the same
Try using the Internet instead...
I just wrapped my home server in a duvet and stuffed it in to a box when I shipped my stuff from London to New Zealand.
I guess you could put it in a vacuum sealed bag if you were paranoid.
I'd be more worried about knocks when loading it in to and out of vans than anything else.
You sir have certainly hurt a nail's head by hitting it.
Man, I love flux as well, have it installed on computers, iPad and iPhone. Makes a massive difference, just to eye strain!
Haha, solution is to pop a pill. I take it you're an American? No offence, but that seems to be the American way...
"And perhaps they'll be something more than vaporware. Someday."
Did you go back in time and post that prior to the 1956 when the first commercial breeder reactor was built? I do admit, it wan't until 1963 until it came in to operation and 1966 it was closed down due to a loose piece of zirconium.
Hmm, yeah, if only we could invent reactors that could re-use the spent fuel. I'd call them "breeder reactors" as it sounds catchy.
Or perhaps we could design something totally different, and call it a "traveling wave reactor" or something cool sounding like that.
Or perhaps I'll just rely on technology improving, I'd call that "the future" and perhaps "the future" will find a better way to handle the waste, considering that in the last 10 years alone we've started re-using spent fuel from old reactors to power newer ones.
Or perhaps I'll just keep educating myself about nuclear energy by reading newspaper headlines.
Yeah, last option sounds easiest...
Good sample size you've got going on there for your analysis.
It's uneducated morons like you who are condemning society to hell. Always thinking that you're correct, everyone else is wrong, basing all your decisions on your newspaper headline educated attitude.
You are a moron (had to say it twice)
