Is d) going to be "Profit!"?
How about if could charge your car wireleslly a bit at a time at each stop light.
If you think that's viable, you're spending too much of your life waiting at stop lights.
It's difficult to asses how much the difference between instruction sets
I don't know how asses even come into play here.
I've heard of power line adapters. They seem to work well if you're wiring us if the right type. Otherwise speeds can degrade quickly.
They still beat wireless through a 2' load-bearing stone (or brick) wall. Which is the GP's point.
All built and supported by one of the most predatory firms in the UK, affectionately known as Twatos.
Don't worry. They're just as bad in many other european countries too.
Terry Gilliam must be laughing in his grave.
Fortunately for him, Terry Gilliam appears to be still alive. Terribly selfish that, not dying on you just so that you could lazily use a cliché like that.
Net neutrality isn't about what tier of service you have. It is about ensuring that you aren't getting purposefully manipulated speed for the tier you have.
Technically, it's about ensuring that you get what you think you have paid for and ensuring that you can use what you have paid for for whatever you want to. These things are absolutely fundamental to a free market even being possible.
Worst piece of enterprise software I've ever seen. I have physical pain any time I have to use it.
I know it's enterprise software, but you're really not supposed to shove it up your ass each time you use it.
I did and they have another hostage ready to chop his head off.
The way to deal with these people is to ignore whether they have the second hostage (assume he's already dead, even if that's technically premature) and to bomb the area, preferably with something like white phosphorous incendiaries. It also needs to be done soon, because people regard such actions less favourably when it is longer from the event which the punishment is being meted out for. Make it very clear that once someone starts killing hostages, reprisals will come. If you don't, the next damn terrorist group will think they can get away with this sort of thing too; you're not protecting those already captured, you're protecting everyone else.
It's a shame, but being this nasty is the only way of hammering home to idiots that fucking with is a seriously bad idea (unless you can act with more precision and kill just the terrorists). And it does work: it's been proved to work over and over throughout history. It probably needs to be accompanied with a full apology to any innocents caught up in the crossfire to mitigate incidental downstream trouble.

Gravitational potential energy cannot be used as an energy source.
But you can use it to store energy, and this has indeed been done and it is an important part of how the Grid works. Look up pumped storage hydroelectricity some time.
Really ? you are kidding right ? It's clearly not backed by gold anymore. So what's it backed by ?
It's backed by the fact that the government can shoot people until everyone agrees that it is valid. We could beat around the bush a lot more, but the threat of force (together with the ability to pay taxes that follows from that) is a key thing in making a currency valid.
There is no table, that I know of, that lists all the features versus all the paradigms versus all the languages.
That would be a very large table indeed, as there are a lot of critical nuances and a lot of languages (even if we exclude the ones without the ability to do a useful subset of all system calls).
Many (most?) AAA games use C++ to build a specialized runtime and the actual game logic is implemented with scripts running on it.
If you're lucky, the scripts are in Lua (or possibly even one of the other embeddable scripting languages). If you're unlucky, they're in something custom...
We probably would have ended up with some variant of REXX or TCL on the client-side.
Almost certainly Tcl; the right engineers knew it at the time, but JS managed to get to a shipping browser slightly sooner.
