There will be fallout.
Hopefully not nuclear...
It is amazing how threatened you young boys are by that woman. I guess it shows just how effective she is at what she does.
How come "Ask Slashdot" posts always boil down to "give me some ammunition for an argument with my boss" ?
I, for one, welcome our new Probably Superintelligent Robots overlords.
Yes, but now we can find out whether we read Slashdot because we are nerds, or we are nerds because we read Slashdot.
So if Z causes both X and Y, I assume that this amazing test gives garbage?
Perhaps in some cases it would be possible to detect that both X and Y were being affected by the same noise, implying the existence of some unknown Z?
The standard t-test for detecting an effect is already probabalistic. In science and medicine a 95% confidence value is commonly used, which means a 1/20 of detecting something that isn't there.
Especially since Harrison Ford praises the script. I wonder what his opinion was regarding the Indiana Jones IV script.
They supposedly waited all those years for the right script to come along.
Go to Target and buy some tin foil and make it into a hat. Put it on then make sure all of the gaps in your doors and windows are also stuffed with foil. You'll feel better.
The pertussis (whooping cough) vaccine nearly killed me when I was a child.
Take a look at vaccine adjuvants. Doctors are not scientists, they are business people, and use a lot of hocus-pocus for financial and other reasons. For a large part doctors and biologists have no clue what they are really doing.
No holistic/philosopical objections here, just pure science.
I'm curious - where's the "pure science" in your post? I must be missing it.
Lois McMaster Bujold does it very well, in her Vorkosigan-saga books, where she touches upon cultural attitudes to sex.
But it seems like a kind of superficial gimmick. And most SF doesn't deliver any culture at all - art, music, religion, politics, etc - unless it directly relates to the plot.
What we need is someone who will do for SF what Tolkien did for fantasy.
The iPod sync doesn't work that way. The library on the iPod is a mirror of the one on the computer. The computer is the master device, and if you make changes to the library on the iPod, they will not be kept unless they are also made on the master library.
this sounds like poor design. if there is a file that exists on my ipod but not desktop, itunes could figure out whether it's a new file, or a file that once existed on the desktop but has been deleted. coincidentally, this poor design benefits apple and harms third-party music sellers (and pirates. arrr).
It's a mirror of a master database. It's a design that has existed in computing times since backups have existed. People just don't read the dialog boxes before clicking ok.
Of course, if you put that third party music in iTunes then it will sync just fine, or you simply put the iPod in manual mode.
Since the release of the iPhone (so, 2007), iTunes now features the ability to copy back changes on the iDevice to the master library during a sync, but the original form of the software did not do this when it was in "auto" mode.
The were songs on computer. Purchased on iBook, then new hardware upgrade to a Mac mini no iNothin' device involved. Songs simply didn't transfer to the new hardware & OS X upgrade, were no longer in iTunes store even though they showed in purchase history but were unavailable for recovery/download. So I had to sneakerNET transfer them from my backup.
Ah, then I know what happened because that happened to me too, except it was during the change over to non-DRM tracks. I had purchased an album and it was showing as such, but I couldn't download the non-DRM versions of the songs for just that particular album because the album had a new ID/had a minor change or had some reason that it was no longer linked with the version for sale on the store.
Apple customer support simply gave me a copy of the "new" album despite it being the same and I carried on as before.
