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).
This one, right here.
DVD by mail leverages the bandwidth of a van full of media, and doesn't cut into your MiFi data cap.
If you actually buy the DVD, my understanding is that comes with a reasonably perpetual license to display the content, unlike streaming services that may go out of business.
For the paranoid out there, it's also slightly harder for the CIA/NSA/FBI/MIB to track when you're watching which film, provided you're watching it on a setup that isn't network connected. (Van Eck attacks are more expensive than waiting for phone-home reports.)
Dang, maked me learn something. Thanks.
However, I believe you could sell tractors that are a certain shade of green because within that context, green is identified as a functional color.
That depends on the intended use of the tractor, and the color.
If you said "construction tractor" (like a front-loader/backhoe, or a bulldozer), and "yellow", I think you're probably right. (Most of them seem to be a similar shade of "construction yellow".)
Certain shades of green (and orange, and yellow, and red, and blue) are almost certainly protected within the fields of agricultural tractors and landscaping equipment.
The confusion in this method of picking Pi Day clearly comes from trying to assign an irrational number to a day on the Gregorian calenda
Julian it is, then. Either November 9 or November 10, depending on leap years.
Suck it, Tau day proponents.
Imagine the bandwidth savings world wide!
Using your post as an example, 1/646... or approximately one and one half tenths of a percent bandwidth savings.
I can feel the latencies dropping already.
If you need more than about 32 digits for your calculations, you grossly misunderstand something.
Second, that's not a factorial.
Wouldn't Pi Day be when, if you see the year as a circle (which many do), you have passed the diameter's length of it? I.e. April 26th?
This is possibly the most interesting idea so far.
It should really be July 21st, but very very late in the day.
On Demand is not to be confused with their "Office Online" feature which are Web Apps of most Office applications (except Access and Publisher.) These versions are limited in function, whereas the On Demand versions were full, streamed instances of the application.
About a week or so ago, I signed in, and the ability to launch the On Demand applications was gone, effectively locking me out of an important feature that I paid for. I did a Google Search, and found several threads discussing this, yet no one seems to know what's going on. There is one kind soul who presented a workaround to launch Word and Excel On Demand which is great (thank you!) but to no fault of his, it doesn't address launching other On Demand applications.
I paid-for a feature that is still advertised, and it is now not available without notice. And there is no explanation. If servers are down, fine. Post a message stating it. If you are adding or changing features, then post a page stating it. But as it stands, all On Demand functionality has simply been stripped out with no explanation rendering my Access databases useless. Yes, I can locally install Access 2013 from my Office 365 Home Premium subscription, but that misses the point that a paid-for feature has been removed without explanation or compensation."

I was under the impression that 900 years ago was "history", rather than "news".
Currency doesn't need to be a long term value store; currency needs to be a vehicle for short term value exchange.
Although maybe the latter will work in the not so distant future when there is only one journalist left.
A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.
If doing something once is OK (acceptable, moral, etc), how is it wrong to do it a million times?
If two wrongs don't make a right, two rights don't make a wrong. (Scale as needed.)
It's really not stalking - stalking is generally targeted at a specific person. This isn't targeted at anyone in particular; it's an attempt to gather general data to learn things. I think we usually call that "science".
