undoing accidental mod, disregard
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).
that project looks pretty interesting.
but it just moves the question one step away: how do you know if the decoder can be executed in the future - will VX32 be around and supported at some arbitrary point in the future?
I think Sony is not an improvement in terms of supporting evil. It could be argued that their divisions have little to do with each other, and the evils of Sony Music (rootkits, etc.) or Sony Computer Entertainment (playstation, dropping promised linux support, exposing customers with disregard for security), or any other scandals shouldn't reflect on their cameras. But, I think similar mentality seems fairly consistent through their corporate culture. I've written Sony off entirely.
for a comparable alternative, I have a couple of Contour cameras I've been quite happy with.
your link has only
I'm pretty sure the word was 'mohel'
my favorite part is that slashdot (and wired) picks this up five months after it was news. much more thorough (and timely) article at techdirt: http://www.techdirt.com/articles/20111208/08225217010/breaking-news-feds-falsely-censor-popular-blog-over-year-deny-all-due-process-hide-all-details.shtml
SMART is good for telling you when your drives do have problems that need addressing. it's not so great for giving you assurance that your drives do not have problems - consider a positive smart result to be more of an "I don't know" than a "good". you should generally assume your drives can fail at any time. I don't think there's any way to reliably predict the sudden death of a drive.
thanks for that link.
I have seen on other articles a tag like "15pagesofads", which I'd suggest here
this might be the first time on the internet anybody has used the term "beg the question" correctly.
I'm a week late, but I witnessed it.
like a truecrypt hidden volume?
The technical limitations argument is really hollow. It's a very very tiny technical hurdle that could generally be solved with a "SELECT decTaxRate from tSalesTax where strZipCode='" + strZipCode + "'".
unfortunately, I live in 52318'; drop table 'tSalesTax'; --
"I do not consent to a search."
"Why are you detaining "Why are you detaining me?"
"Am I under arrest?"
"Am I free to go?"
that first one is really important and may be overlooked due to hiding in the subject line (I do not understand the tendency of people here to start typing in the subject and then continue in the body)
seconded for namecheap. I've had good experiences with them, albeit for my very-limited needs.
No, a pulled punch is one that is not too hard. You pull back at the last moment, and don't hit with force. "Don't pull any punches" means, hit me full-force.
It seems rather silly to go from battery discharge -> LCD -> recover the light in a photovoltiac -> charge the battery, with some loss of efficiency at all steps. Isn't there reflective stuff behind there to make it so all the light goes where it's needed, and only enough power is supplied to the LCD to make it sufficiently visible?
