Anecdotically, I have two kids, a 9 year old boy and a 3 year old girl. Since the boy is older, I was expecting the girl to copy everything he does. She does, to a point - plays with his Legos and so on. But she also loves to play with anything remotely resembling a doll. She cooks for the doll, feeds it, argues with it. It's definitely not something learned or encouraged. Also, she wants to look pretty, has her own choice of clothing, again something her older brother simply doesn't care about. She's also not copying my wife, she's completely independent and different in these areas.
Exactly. Don't know about other countries, but Romania has a population density of about 90 people / sq. km. If we take only the major cities, we won't exceed 500 people / sq. km. Total land area is 240,000 sq. km.
We have 100 Mbps internet via fiber optics pretty much everywhere except remote areas. For remote areas, 3G is everywhere (over 99% coverage) and H+ and 4G is available in many rural areas.
I pay $10/month for 100 Mbps (tested). Fiber end to end. No caps, no traffic shaping.
The second raid failed, it's pretty clear by now. What do you want, confirmation from the US government that the SEAL forces had to withdraw? You'll never hear it. They'll redefine 'success' and say the mission was successful.
Not sure about UK, but elsewhere in Europe home appliances were also rated from G to A initially. Then they had to add A+ and even A++
And this surprises you?
Last time I was surprised was in 2003, after it became evident there were no WMDs in Iraq. I expected public outcry, heads to roll. Nothing happened.
Well, Bill Gates was showing a special container that doesn't require electricity and can keep medicine refrigerated for up to 50 days at high outside temperatures.
The whole point of a malaria vaccine is to make it affordable for poor nations. The demand for a malaria vaccine in rich countries is pretty low.
Romanian here. Everyone worth their salt here writes code, comments and docs in English. I have my own pet project where I'm basically the only one who ever needs to see the code, yet everything is in English. Considering that the programming language has English keywords (if, while, class, etc) and the text strings are in English too, it's simpler for me to keep everything consistent rather than to make any mental switch.
Agreed. I use Eclipse regularly (FDT and PDT) but whenever I get to work in Visual Studio, it's a much smoother experience.
The major cause of war/unrest in the world isn't skin color, it's religion
No. Religion has been used in the past in the same way "the war on terror" is used now. It's a way to rally people against a seemingly powerful, brutal and subhuman enemy.
According to an article on Ars Technica, salted hashes are no longer relevant - they are cracking the hashes anyway without using rainbow tables. Using SHA256 instead of MD5 has more benefits in this regard than salted vs. unsalted.
I stand corrected. Indeed it looks like the Persuasion was simply abandoned and none of their programs can read those files.
What discontinued Adobe product are you talking about? It's a serious question.
They either transitioned the software (GoLive to Dreamweaver for example) or they still support it (Framemaker, Director).
I can't think of any of their products that was abruptly discontinued without an upgrade path or support for quite a long time.
The gritty look on the picture can be achieved with a local contrast filter. Combined with contrast and saturation manipulation, it's pretty easy to do. In Lightroom is just a matter of setting a few sliders - Darks, Highlights, Clarity, Vibrance and Saturation.
Furthermore, the author says he has the RAW file and it was examined by the jury. Personally I know of no software that can currently reverse a jpeg into raw. It should be possible in theory to fake a raw file, but I sincerely doubt it's the case.
Analyzing jpeg artifacts is snake oil. My photo workflow is this: shoot in RAW. Edit in Lightroom. Convert to ProPhoto 16bit/channel. Open in Photoshop, make any fine adjustments if needed. Output to jpeg. Only fools edit and re-save jpegs.
This is simply one of the "fake moon landings" conspiracies, started by people who don't understand photography.
The biggest threat to SK right now is not nuclear, but the thousands of artillery units pointed to Seul, all in range. A surprise attack against this 10 million city would be both feasible and devastating.
I had to archive the emails since 1996. They were in multiple formats - Outlook Express dbx, Mailbox from Netscape Navigator and Thunderbird, Outlook.
I converted all of them in
Now I can easily find any email. I can browse them using the file system, I can search them using the OS or via a script. Windows indexes them and extracts the metadata so any search is very quick.
