Nonsense and bullshit. In general, the whole planet has acquiesced to the US convention of 1 billion == 1 000 000 000. Those who don't agree are doomed to be misunderstood and sidelined.
... is the opposite of this design philosophy.
I really don't want to be a Linux basher, but the truth is that Linux embodies all of the principles of how you do NOT want to be friendly to the user. That's why it's never succeeded.
Well not really. I work for a company that's part of a large group, and one of the group's subsidiaries is a massive publisher of legal books. My question is: is it worthwhile to get these books onto DOI, host them online, and then somehow drive sales through this? In the DOI documentation, while I've not searched extensively, it seems there's no built-in mechanism for purchases.
Is this worthwhile to pursue?
Books go through many revisions. The link may be referring to an outdated version; and while it's possible you might WANT that old version, chances are that you want the most recent one. This destroys the hash argument, I'm afraid.
For all intensive purposes,
Ok, I've been seeing you post this for quite some time, and it's never failed to annoy me. Granted, at some point I did think this really was correct and/or valid. But it's not.
The correct phrase is, "For all INTENTS AND PURPOSES"
This makes a lot more sense, no?
Please change your
No. GUIDs are free. There's the rub.
Very insightful. Someone with mod points, mod this guy up?
I advocate a system of completely local time! This is a lot like our current time zones, but rather than being zoned, times are completely continuous! Watches and cellphones merely need to make use of GPS to discover where the user is located, then adjust the displayed time accordingly.
Simple, effective, and not at all likely to lead to widespread confusion. Not at all.
Actually four -- the dump.
That is so pathetic
It's the slowest kind of internet access I'm aware of. I believe WAP used to use GPRS for comms. It is really really slow.
Yeah, this is a satnav -- but these things are commonly referred to as gps units, even though they do more than that.
This model uses GPRS to get realtime traffic information. I am guessing that the format of this stream was changing, so they had to update firmware. Personally I decided to upgrade before the deadline. There is no way to disable the GPRS channel that I am aware of -- and I wanted to keep the traffic info, as it was extremely useful to me for avoiding frequent jams.
