Where is Boeing's reusable, low-cost, kerosene (safe) launch vehicle?
Came here to ask the same. Somebody is patent-troll threatening them from testing landings on a barge offshore which was the sensible thing to do before actual land - for safety, not ease (waves). I'm planning to drive the family down for the first land landing, and it looks like imaginary -property knaves are doing their best to screw up this trip (and retard the progress of science and the useful arts, as usual).
Can't tell if real or sarcasm. Well played (or my sympathies) .
"Hold your fire - there's no life forms aboard."
but in this case the authors were anonymous - they are NOT going to de-cloak to enforce a trademark.
It's probably better for the security of the community at large to carry on calling it TrueCrypt (3.0, clear who the new team is, etc.). Trademarks exist to prevent confusion - in this case, using the same name is the minimally confusing option. The license is unenforceable and securing people's communications is more important to society than the wishes of the retired authors.
Imaginary property ain't real but the risks of electronic adversaries certainly are.
People just look at domains at BestBuy, then purchase them from Amazon.
How about trying *actually" being in the woods with your friends?
Right. My kids visited with some family friends, and their kids play Minecraft 3-4 hours a day.
I guess it's entertaining, and they do neat stuff _in_ Minecraft, but it'll all illusory.
When they came home they asked me if we could get Minecraft. I told them, "of course not - go outside and build a treehouse. Get some sunshine while you're at it".
Minecraft is conditioning the factory workers of tomorrow. If we're to build a digidystopia, at least my kids can be running the thing.
it shows that neither know what they are talking about
no kidding - you could make a drinking game about how many elements of this story sound like they're from 2002.
The industry already settled on mp3, sans DRM. The market is not demanding anything Apple is offering.
And Bono can keep on trying to make sure poor African kids can never listen to his music (they'll never pay two days' wages for his post-Zooropa music). It's just sad that he pretends to care otherwise.
Can we quibble about the statistical method to use after we've settled the basic cause and effect relationships? Here's the retired TED talk: Religions and Babies.
I think the title is supposed to be provocative but I find it has the opposite effect (two things young men don't want to talk about...) - it's really about assumptions underling the modeling of world population.
If you have a degree from a top liberal arts school and a working knowledge of the tech, many corps will hire you "to manage the MIT kids" whom they do not trust to get anything done on their own.
Fascism - aren't you paying attention? Since when is SpaceX selling weaponry - their brand of non-violent commercialism is harmful to the health of the State.
If I were Musk, I'd put up my own space station, if this goes to Boeing. I bet one with rotatational gravity and a zero-G hub is now feasible and commercially desireable. The hub can be arbitrarily long as long as the habitat area is decent for humans, lots of work can get done at the best cost and the zero-G area can be expanded modularly.
without being a fainting Musk fanboi, if I had to choose between him and Obama to manage the country, it's Elon all the way.
Let's just assume that Obama was born in Vancouver, to level the playing field, so precedent isn't really am issue.
you can also do something like:
zfs set copies=2 backups
to protect against single sector errors (another use I have for $200 10TB drives).
Maybe there's a cytokine storm afoot? Occasionally they're worse than the infection.
It is a lot like driving with one hand verses two at the ten and two positions. Many people can safely drive with one hand but it is safer to be in the ten and two positions with two hands which is why we need to do it to pass most driving tests.
In theory (one, anyway) 10 and 2 are the best positions, so DMV examiners have been insisting on it.
In reality, it turns out, 9:30 and 3:30 are safer.
In theory, talking on the phone is distracting.
In reality, it's been shown that drivers who are a little bit tired are much safer if they're also talking.
In theory, texing bans will reduce traffic accidents.
In reality, people in those States text below the steering wheel, completely taking their eyes off the road, to avoid cops seeing then, while those in States without such bans tend to text with the phone at the top of the steering wheel, so they can at least keep half an eye on the road. Paradoxically, texting bans are deadly.
Tibbit's "solutions" work in theory, but reality is far more messy. To assume otherwise is hubristic.
