Last time I checked, DuckDuckGo's servers were in Panama...
12 is a convenient real world "base" because it is evenly divisible a large number of ways (2,3,4,and 6).
If you're referring to all positive integers by which 12 is divisible, you can't forget 1.
They just derive off into the sin set.
Wouldn't they derive more SILICONE than SILICON in that set? (It's really more like the empty set than anything else....)
+1 to you. i was going to mention 2001 as well. But they (and the ST ones) look more like a Toshiba Excite or Sony S1 than an iPad.
(NO ONE IN THE FUTRUE USES WHITE PLASTIC, execpt for Storm Troopers and the imperial guard, then it is for cloths not gadgets. Everyone knows Space is dirty hehehe)
That was "A Long Time Ago"
But a withered desktop age with Linux.
That is what I was imagining, but I couldn't find the words to express that as well as you did.
Limited hardware capability (which meant you had to use every CPU cycle and bit (an on/off state, a computer bit) of RAM optimally) meant that those coding had to be very skilled at telling the computer what to do. Nowadays, bloated and unoptimized code can do the same things faster on modern hardware, but it'd be many times faster yet, have fewer bugs, and be more secure if all programmers were as skilled and creative using modern hardware as those who are currently known as graybeards, who know the importance of using resources and time (processor cycles) skillfully. Some of them probably are, but others probably aren't.
Why not go all the way and change to Kelvin
Because then the freezing and boiling point of water wouldn't be 0 and 100 degrees, respectively. They'd be 273.15 and 373.15 degrees, respectively.
Maybe if we had 10.15 fingers (that includes thumbs, natürlich) and 10.15 toes and 2.15 arms and 2.15 legs that would make perfect sense to us. However, that's not the case for most of the people I know.
Aren't all well-worded letters superior to or more desirable than less well-worded letters when the recipient reads well the language the letter is written in?
I hope they have an army of bots ready to revert vandalism as soon as the data becomes publically-accessible!
A "veritable battery"
That's what the pattern buffer is for.
This isn't as much of a problem now as it was 20 years ago, but for fast typists, WP5.1x for DOS was the easiest and fastest by far. Other software rendered the text too slowly, couldn't keep up, etc. When a person's paycheck was dependent upon the person's line count and turnover time (e.g. in professions such as transcription), speed was essential.
News this evening for those of us whose car batteries remained charged until we got home.
They also operate under the name ethical-seo-comapany.com (no, the typo is not mine - they actually don't know how to spell company).
An Aussie, er, not really an Aussie (that is, someone using a fake name in
Looks like the
