You can't access your server?
Oh, we shut it down because it didn't receive any connections for a week.

Sure and I can use just about every protocol from the console except the Web since most websites do useless dynamic crap that doesn't work with links2.
I really don't care what you do, I prefer a Web without all that shit, unless you implement it properly ie. create a suitable standard, and implement it natively if you really have to.
The current spaghetti of dynamic nonsense has lead us to every single bad design decision ever made in software development being made mandatory on every pc.
It'd be many times easier than implementing the current mess, which no browser so far has been able to do properly.
I'd rather that a comment feature used a protocol that was designed for the purpose. Newsgroups perhaps?
The first time we stumbled upon pi or any one of the constants, they were also just arbitrary numbers.
But sure, it's way too premature to be making any sort of publications about analysis like this.
If this value starts popping up when doing various unrelated research, it may warrant a closer look.
The idea does actually work if the assumption is that we are living in a simulation, similar to ours.
Finally, a Web standard that isn't total shit.
I was starting to lose hope in humanity altogether.
Now, let's also improve html by removing all JS and other VMism from it, and make it binary.
These kinds of "feel good" measures only amount to more work for devs, and stuff not working when they should.
I'd rather people spent their time writing better and more secure code.
That's the thing, the features that interest me, are high amounts of code auditing = security, and good multiplatform which also proves a high level of workmanship and modularity of the code.
That's also why I like ext3, which is among the most well audited code in Linux. It actually goes further to protect you from many types of buggy drivers and disk hardware implementations.
ZFS and btrfs style multilayer filesystems only interest me insofar that they offer online dynamic multidrive spanning, but these types of features are still much lower priority for me.
The one thing that keeps me from using obsd is that each time I remember the close to non-existing fs support even for the most common ones such as ext3.
no journal, no deal for me.
Damnit, now they're gonna bring down the Nazis living on the moon.
Public elections are an aristocratic practice, not democratic.
Maybe he meant that if as in this case the "speed of light" is modified, then light travelling at the normal rate would in fact be traveling faster than the speed of the before-mentioned light.
I'm also wondering if this mean c will continue to be a constant?
Come on, this is like a trillion times more interesting than "Ubuntu releases new version of the same thing they did last month" or "Security hole found in Windows!"
