You must be new here
Ah, slashdot, clearly you read the headline but not the summary
You go on holiday to remote places, and take a games console? Next time take a book instead. Disconnect!
And next up is lossless. FLAC and PNG already have it covered for audio and photo but personally I'm itching for lossless video all the way from camera to eyeball and every transcoding, editing, transmitting and storage step in between. In 8k.
Can I store the value of time with my children in currency? Or the value of a good night's sleep? Or the value of close friendship?

Hi, vinyl DJ here (waves)
Have been getting used to Traktor lately, and now need to get me some timecode vinyl so I can exist in the netherplane inbetween both worlds. Guess in terms of porn vs sex that's a bit like videoing yourselves and playing it on the tv while you're doing it. Or something.
What was the subject again?
*If i use the word musician then some old people will complain that if it doesn't have electric guitars in it can't be music, just like the old people before them saying how electric guitars couldn't POSSIBLY be musical instruments
Saw one of these filming crowd shots at a music festival I went to in Madrid last September. And they even used one on the latest Top Gear episode (Africa/Nile special).
Do they actually get around to showing it in action or is the whole 12 minutes just this guy talking?
I commute and when home I tend to walk/cycle around town so my car spends 22 out of every 24 hours parked. At weekends it might sit there from friday night to monday morning untouched. If I plugged it in at home and at work then I'd never need to worry about it.
Problem is that that's the opposite of liquid fuelled cars, people are used to charging during their journey. It's a complete mental shift, and we all know how good humans are at that, I'm honestly surprised no one attacked the Tesla with a pitch fork, the bastard demon magic car!
Just in case the internet was wondering : wain/wean = wee-one = small-one
Sisko all the way. Plus he got the best stern-telling-off (of Worf, no less) bit out of all of Star Trek:
"As your captain, it is my duty to inform you that you made the wrong choice. I don't think Starfleet will file any formal charges -- even a secret court-martial would run the risk of revealing too much about their intelligence operations. But this will go in to your service record... and to be completely honest, you probably won't be offered a command on your own after this."
"I have also issued new orders -- you and Jadzia are not to be assigned to a mission on your own ever again... and one last thing: as a man who had a wife... if Jennifer had been lying in that clearing... I wouldn't have left her either."
Because "it MUST be a monolithic kernel" is not the main driving philosophy behind all Linux development, the big fat kernel is just the way it happens to work
Yeah and I'd go further than that what with the fact that a LOT of things are software and a lot of other things are "a chip"... Take for example the iPhone, we had touch screen PDAs for at least a decade before that, yet apple just* stuff in a GSM chip and suddenly it's a new invention?!
Someone takes a phone and stuffs in a CCD chip
This is NOT invention. This is digital Lego
* yes yes, antenna, sim card, etc, but you get the idea = Modules
"You call that an antenna?"
