Every day I go to different locations for work on major and minor roads. I look up Google most nights and apart from recent development work everything is right where it should be. Including boundaries, power poles, storm drain access covers, pits, substations, railings, pram ramps, gutters, condition and width of shoulders. I can even look up power poles and get an idea of fittings and condition. Too bad for you Boo Boo, it's bloody great for me.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
Ripping out a couple of fibre optic cables has the same effect, as happened with severe storms in Australia.
I'm sure one disenfranchised pleb could easily create the same mayhem, US corporations have the most to loose.
And if a few plebs got organised ???
The rest of the world is laughing at the NSA.
Maybe some nice multinationals might come in and improve life for all those poor Cubans.
Bring them into the new millennium of corporate servitude.
The electric company will use the radio control to maximise it's profits.
I'd put it down to world wars I & II which caused a massive acceleration in development of all types including land and air transport, computers, electronics, nuclear.
The nuclear bomb coincided with jet flight, the transistor was 2 years later.
And much of this development started with the industrial revolution in the 1800s.
It was also a time when women were prominent in industry and the war effort, suffraget late 1800s to women's liberation 1960s effectively doubled the working population and changed society.
Nuclear is an event which wasn't causal but only a useful marker.
It's just another fuck-up by the industrial age but I'd feel the petrochemical/plastics industry has had a much more pivotal and destructive effect than nuclear.
I'm in Queensland Australia. We have the VLAD laws
A biker used to live around the corner from us.
His home and everything has been taken as proceeds of crime, it is now a construction zone ? fenced off, no entry.
He's probably in gaol.
And that's just for being a biker.
All so the conservative state government can be seen to be hard on crime.
"Unfortunately the desktop stability leaves a lot to desire: "
Sounds like the way they have done unstable releases since KDE 1, put me off KDE for good.
What's the rush ?
Are you paid only after a release ?
We drink filtered rain water from our tank, beautiful.
After drinking some really bad water from various water treatment plants in cities and towns around Australia, can't go past rain water.
There are a few water recycling plants in SE Queensland, but generally for non-drinking purposes.
All my life I've known water is the most important ingredient for life.
I thought Bill was a straight, never picked him for watersports (urophilia)
hey they can't fly straight either
hang on those dozen packages might still be reliant on the same broken library.
My partner wants us to fly all over the world and see all those wonderful places.
I couldn't give a rats, because airplanes punch big holes in the sky and pollute like crazy.
Thanks for putting a number on what I have felt for all of my life.
Who says marketing doesn't work,
they make it fashionable, sell lots, then bring in the next fashion.
You're a flock of sheep.
If they herded you to the edge of the cliff, you'd be all too happy to jump.
Last job as a bench tech, I'd finish the required work, then do my own projects.
The in shelves were empty, the out shelves were full, customers were happy,
but the boss let me go.
Now I can listen to Frank Zappa loud through speakers instead of quiet ear buds.
"I'm a happy guy now on the day shift at the utility muffin research kitchen,
arrogantly twisting the sterile canvas snoot of a fully-charged icing anointment utensil."
First thing a lawyer thinks of is a non-disclosure to limit the damage.
NDCs should be illegal. Transparency everywhere.
If they did it and public knowledge is damaging,
they caused the damage by their actions
and deserve the karma to come back and bite them on the bum.
According to this modelling done 10 years ago
it's not as simple as global warming
I stopped using the term global warming ages ago
and instead use the term extreme climate
More cyclones = more cyclone swells = more surf = great
surfs up dudes
and yes I blame man because of the rapid changes in extreme climate
