With all the problems in America, why on earth do you send probes in to outer space?
Wait, American's aren't using chip and pin yet?
That's why my pin is 9999!
Your Enter key broken?
"Weapons Systems That Kill According To Algorithms Are Coming."
Like bear traps?!
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!
