Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
- Ceramic so metal detectors won't find it.
- how high up on the dune is determined by how fast the dune is travelling, and how long you want it to stay buried.
- make the average density of the pot plus contents the same as the sand, so it neither sinks nor floats.
If $third_party wants to enforce their copyright, then $third_party becomes liable for its maintenance.
That leaves red, pink, orange, green, blue, purple, brown, black, grey, and white. (Did I miss any?)
So about ten more trademarks and the market is locked. Not exactly unlimited.
the problem with the boycott is that 99%+ of the users aren't active contributors, just passive viewers. So a boycott won't change the viewership numbers very much. heck, most of the people who would boycott are probably no script/adblock anyway, so there's no lost impressions there.
You are probably right about that percentage, but you miss the point that even the passive viewers are here for the comments and the links to interesting tech stuff. If the active users go away there will be nothing left to passively view.
That applies now.
The only reason it is not economically feasible is because it is so cheap to dig fossil fuels out of the ground.
Allegedly, we are now past peak oil, and the price of fossil fuels should start going up. Eventually it will be economical to produce synthetic hydrocarbon fuels using solar/nuclear/other power and either biomass or CO2 and water - either because the technology has improved, or the products have risen in value, or more likely, both.
When he generates an excess they only pay him wholesale for that. (2c/kWh)
I think it is actually a reasonable model.
Maintaining the lines is a pretty fixed cost = connection fee.
Generate less than you use = you pay retail on the diff like everyone else.
Generate more than you use = you collect wholesale on what you sell, same as other power suppliers.
They make a profit on selling your excess power, you get free energy storage.
If the phone is still functional and can get a signal, you can call the cops, ambulance, and/or fire brigade.
Your government has nukes, artillery, tanks, bombers, etc. Are you going to demand access to these too? After all your logic seems to be 'whatever government can has, I want too'.
Any objective reading of the second amendment would seem to indicate that that is the case. If you don't like it, you should work to get the second amendment changed, not work to violate your constitution.
This is a much smaller group of much larger companies. I would have no difficulty believing they were colluding to raise prices.
