'store'? which store is that? Do we know where this guy lives?
I was traveling from Heathrow to Beijing via Helsinki (5.5 hour lay-over) that was supposed to leave LHR at 7:30 but was delayed until 9:00...the estimated departure moved again backwards and forwards once (after we got on the plane), but it seemed to be a minor delay from my point of view.
The most annoying thing was that the online systems weren't showing the disruption. I was looking at the departure board at LHR and it was showing the delay (though it took a while), but the online web page and the 'Heathrow App' for my android phone both showed no delay even though it was ~8am already. I was due to meet someone for lunch (during my 5.5 hour lay-over) and I had smsed them about the delay, but they had called the airport authority and were told there was no delay, and so they experienced some inconvenience while they waited.
The good thing was that the flight from Helsinki to Beijing was very sparse, and I was able to use a whole 4-seat row to sleep on - I guess many flights missed the connection. Sucks to be them, but good for me, I suppose
...even if you use their dart-capable browser?
Ah, sure, the source is available, but what about the source of the compiler what was used to compile it? If you can't get the source of the original compiler, the only recourse is to actually check the output of the compiler - I suppose you could also *de*compile the compiler and check *that* source too.
I wonder if you have a limited vision of what constitutes a robot. Why must it be that a robot cannot have desires, addictions, or any of the other 'eminently human behaviours'?
I suspect that such 'errant' behaviour is not so far off. We have this idea that our brains are so complicated, but I wonder if that's really true, and instead our brains are relatively simple but work in a different way so that it just seems complicated.
Indeed, but you didn't read what he wrote (carefully enough)....he said 'hire' and 'just to keep them busy'. That's obviously different to 'having ready access to'.
Of course, it might well be true that some leaders can't be kept busy in such a way, which I suppose might have been your point.
Aren't those two youtube URLs exactly the same?
Are they really that arrogant? Perhaps they just don't know English too well.
I mean, iinm, they previously claimed they had discovered the largest and now they claim it again. There is only *one* largest - it makes no difference if you know about it or not. If you find something new that is larger than what you thought was the largest, then all you have proved is that you were previously wrong. To then claim that the new thing is the largest is arrogant.
How about adding some words to fix it, like 'known' or 'probably'?
I *suppose* there might be some way to *prove* (or otherwise justify) such confidence. For example, if they know the entire volume of the universe and the newly discovered one takes up more than half, then it would seem reasonable to assume that it is the largest.
They didn't discover the largest before; they were just wrong in thinking it was the largest, just like they probably are this time. It's just arrogance to claim it is the largest when one hasn't yet examined the *entire* universe.
I was impressed, but then I realised I had mis-read MPH as MPG...that *would* be impressive.
I had a quick try on ubuntu, but it failed a dependency on libupnp3...I found some discussion on it, but it involved compiling it from source....can't be arsed, sorry.
It's been considered a fairly useful capability since it was on Symbian...how long ago was it on that platform?? Too long ago to remember. This is nothing new apart from it's Google and Android, and perhaps the pervasiveness of the platform.
Ah, I see it was 2005 and Google discontinued it for Symbian :
I find this sentence in Wikipedia interesting/disappointing :
"The programs are compatible with Microsoft Office file format, but not the OpenDocument standard."
> > Being a good person is something that will always be good for you.
> Demonstrably not true
Indeed (clearly not *always*), though I consider it poorly worded than just 'not true'. IINM, there was recent reports showing that being selfish is not good for you in terms of evolution (or something like that) - yeah, a bit like Spock said, I suppose.
Oh, I even have a reference : http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-23529849
Very good and all, but who is Major Tarm?
