I believe Breyer, Scalia, Kennedy, and Ginsburg only have Bachelor's degrees in law.
narrowly fixed work schedules across a team make less sense every decade.
So we should only expect them to persist for the next century or so.
I dunno about in the USA, but I get charged GST on my Amazon.com ebooks here in Canada.
When the problem predates the technology (or at least the wide adoption of the technology), it's pretty unlikely that the technology is the primary problem. It may be aggravating things, but the root cause is somewhere else.
Because we need to prepare them for a life of sleep deprivation caused by having to start work at 8am on the dot.
I believe Skype utilizes STUN to deal with NAT, so it'll work, but fully peer-to-peer stuff will break.
Today is September 7189th.
I was told in grad school that we were going to run out of IP4 addresses in 2 years. That was in 1993.
Yeah, then we came up with CIDR. Then we widely implemented NAT as a stopgap.
The wolf has actually been there. We've just been shooting at it and scaring it off. Now it's back again and we're out of ammo.
I don't think they can force sellers outside of the USA to charge US state sales tax to their customers so I guess I will be buying some stuff 'offshore'
Which makes things really easy for them because they can just hit you with the tax when it goes through customs.
Your cell carrier doesn't count as an ISP for your smartphone? You don't get a publicly routable address on any cell network I've used.
It's a solution to a problem that does exist, just not the problem you think it is.
It saves you having to store your plane (with attendant fees) and rent a car (more money) or arrange for a ride (more hassle) after flying halfway across the country. Just fold in the wings and drive from the airport to wherever you're actually going.
Now the question remains is how much this thing will cost and whether it will be within the price range of the above mentioned small aircraft pilot.
Then this could replace the credit card system as it currently stands.
Probably not. We've already got a replacement for the credit card systems called Interac. It's a direct debit transfer system with way lower fees than the credit card companies.
This would likely go in the niche currently partially occupied by Interac's Flash and e-transfer services, but be even simpler for small transactions.
It might be worth pointing out that Lama Smith is opposed to abortion, and thus most likely anything to do with stem cell research.
Thankfully, research on those subjects probably falls under the NIH's umbrella, rather than the NSF.
When a city or state enacts draconian gun control laws - crime goes up. When a city or state relaxes gun control laws - crime goes down.
Awesome. It's not like the borders between states are wide fucking open. The USA isn't the USSR (other similarities notwithstanding) and there's no internal borders, so people can wander over to another state with no gun control laws worth being called such and take a truckload of guns back to their home state, dodging the laws of the latter. Gun control (or control of any other readily transportable good) is completely and totally pointless at any level below national.
But no, use a non-functional implementation to dismiss the entire concept, ignoring other countries, like the one directly north of you.
