+ - NVIDIA Begins Supplying Open-Source Register Header Files->

An anonymous reader writes: NVIDIA's latest mark of their newly discovered open-source kindness is beginning to provide open-source hardware reference headers for their latest GK20A/GM20B Tegra GPUs while they are working to also provide hardware header files on their older GPUs. These programming header files in turn will help the development of the open-source Nouveau driver as up to this point they have had to do much of the development via reverse-engineering. Perhaps most interesting is that moving forward they would like to use the Nouveau kernel driver code-base as the primary development environment for new hardware.

she has way more government experience

1) So did Palin (vs Obama) but that didn't stop the criticism there 2) Most of Hilary's experience is being the wife of Monica Lewinsky's ex-boyfriend 3) Finally, most good democrats cannot even find ONE accomplishment of Hilary, besides #2)

Given the choice between Hilary and Carly, I'd take Carly. Which isn't actually saying much. Personally, I can't stand either of them.

You do realize Hilary was Secretary of State right?

There is some merit to this. Amtrak, by the direction of the Feral Railroad Administration, already had guidelines for using electronic devices near suspected explosive devices. However, they is a matter if discretion. Is electronic communication used for dicumenting an event. Or is it used for sending a signal to detonate a device? It is hard to tell.

The only thing I would want from qtorrwnt is a way to add previously downloaded content, via magnetlink, from the command line. I would love to be able to add a magnetlink and set the download location to where the content already resides. Then verify and seed. So far only transmission has allowed me to do this. Works very well with my reseeder tool.
