Because all offline wikipedia readers require you to download the wikipedia dump, and the english wiki isn't dumped that often, and this is wiki converted to HTML with downscaled images as far as I can understand.
All phones are slow when they have been on the market for 6 months, there is no special magic pixie dust in the iPhones that makes them faster. But people still buy them, same with Androids..
While coming up with rather complex integrals in your head is nice, there is something to be said about just copy and pasting maple code until you get it right. Not saying you will be very effective but it sure helps when you have forgotten what you really should know.
bah I modrated redundant.
Further I'm interested by the fact that there is quite a lot of talk about first amendment, but considering that Cannonical is not based in the US the perspective is alittle different. I have tried to use company logos in publications in Sweden, and it was really hard, you are not allowed to print logos without premissions. While the creator of the website might be from the US I don't know that, but I guess it's easy to check.
I guess the question is would I think the same if this was about Apple or Windows.
Yeah kind of makes all of those hand waving sci-fi hacking tools look plausible.
A secure computer is a computer without power, network and Qualcomm baseband chips.
I use Gentoo, and find its portage system much more superior to most distro's.
While portage is a nice idea and I really support what it tries to do, it's optimzes for fiddling with it instead of using it. You need to have both, but if you don't have usablility you have a long way to go.
New york post publisges too much right wing crap to be called far left, may be they have a streak of red in them somewhere. Maybe.
While I'm sure it's a good book I don't think you summary is right in anyway. First of all most bicycle accidents leading to serisou injury (at least a day in hospital) happen only to the cyclist, with no one else involved. The biggest cause of accidents is bad infrastructure and maintainance, i.e. gravel on the bicycle lane, or other surprises such as tight curves .
It's of course possible that things are completely different here in Sweden, and it's also possible to blame this on the cyclist saying that bad judgement is the cause of these accidents, but you have to put it in a perspective you do not have the same types of problems in car lanes, no one would dig a hole in the middle of the road without giving motorist lots of warning and protection. This happens quite often in bicycle infrastructure.
These are stats from Sweden
27% can be related to operation and maintenance
20% to road design
27% to cyclist-bicycle interaction
15% to the behaviour and state of the cyclist,
11% to the interaction of the cyclist with other road users
Actually they have been paying way more than us, well at least the people who where paying their insurance/hospitalbills.
He took a blood test and by measuring C reactive protein (CRP) you can see wether it's a common cold or some more powerfull virus infection, I think 50 miligram/liter is an indication of influenza. The wikipedia page isn't very good for understanding the specific interaction of CRP and influenza, but I'm sure you can find it yourself.
According to the Spanish general traffic department (DGT), excessive speed was a factor in 37% of all fatalities in traffic accidents between 1999 and 2003. Roughly 20.000 deaths every year only in Spain.
We have a tenth of that here, so according to your numbers in Spain 440 deaths per million, in Sweden on a bad year it's 44 deaths per million.. It can't be that much of a difference can it?
I can assure you if you ask the power company for a 100KW line they are going to give you a different rate.
Over here there is a difference between "network charge" and power usage. So if you pay for a 20 Amps line you the network charge is fixed rate + something per kWh, and pay for your power usage in kWh. I think this is because we buy our power from power companies and out electric connection from delivery companies.
If you ask for a bigger connection you might not get it without paying for the network upgrade, that's why you build datacenters in old industrial towns which has a good electrical grid.
