A racist laser, literally white power.
I look forward to seeing how much extra carbon is pumped into the atmosphere by anti-GMO people burning any crops planted using this.
From your link:
"he expectation from a number of different sites is that TrackingPoint will soon be filing for bankruptcy."
Did they? Nothing seems to say they actually did, The homepage doesn't say anything about not taking orders...
Think of the countless small ways in which knowing some code, or scripting has been useful over your life - sorting simple lists, renaming things in batch, formulas in a spreadsheet... etc. etc.
Even if most people will not be doing code professionally, it will help them do little things for themselves. It will also help them understand to some extent why software driven things behave the way they do, and even to make more informed choices as to software driven hardware they buy (and that is the future).
It's not like a flood of really bad programmers will get through most hiring barricades, already famously difficult to storm. They will go on to do things besides programming, where light programming can help them.
It's not all that hard to stick with a toolkit version for a couple of months (or to be honest, even a project lasting up to 18 months is no big deal.
That depends on the system. If you are doing iOS development, while 18 months is possible it's not advisable due to every new version of XCode (one major, a few minor updates every year) having more advanced tooling, compilers, frameworks... furthermore you are going to have to use a beta version at some point to test and debug your software on for un-released versions of iOS that you have to make sure you work well on before they are released.
I see your point, I was more speaking to the attitude of people that want to spend years without upgrading the underlying technologies involved in building and running your project... the longer you wait the worse the transition is, and like I said in the meantime you are also missing out on things that could have made development easier or resolved bugs you had to fix.
Ha ha. I remember you arguing how Android was going to the platform for games because of Ouya.
So it really was a shit as I sad it would be.
On the other hand if you fall behind current dev tools, you miss out on the potential for a lot of community support, risk being crippled by the bugs that remain in the older system that are fixed the new, and hamstring your ability to work as effectively as you might because you cannot use newer tooling/frameworks to help with development...
Yes SE has a lot of stuff changing, it always has and always will. But cringing from the pain will not help, SE is not finding any kind of safe plateau (because there are none). It is moving ever forward at a reasonable pace, using nettles as handholds where you must grasp them firmly as you ascend, living with the brief pain to move forward.
Why do you think that even matters? If it's down to a Bush/Clinton matchup, who WOULDN'T vote for the Trump candidate... hell, the result is in the name!
She also set a goal of installing half a billion new solar panels within her first term
Come on, even working four years straight there's no way she can install that many solar panels!
On the other hand, if she's doing that there's no way she has time to screw up the country like past presidents... OK, i'm in, as long as she keeps her promise to just install solar panels.
So in other words the original suggestion was as stupid as I made it sound in my sarcastic reply! Thanks for the confirmation!
After years of abuse, I just instantly close a website now if it decides an interstitial ad is needed. Regardless of where I am browsing.
No content is worth the suffering, no video can have enough cats to justify the anguish.
I have no idea if my own droopy matters at all, but I like to think window closure after interstitial presentation is a metric tracked and at least I am increasing it.
I started buying 5.11 tactical pants made out of lightweight, stretchy nylon with a Teflon finish. They look like business casual pants but move like pajamas, and anything you spill on them rolls or wipes off. I don't think I've worn any other kinds of pants to work since I bought my first pair.
There is likely more radiation is food grown in various parts of America than from Fukushima.
In fact if you eat bananas at all from anywhere, you are absolutely getting way more radiation than from any produce grown in Fukushima.
There are so many natural sources of radiation you deal with every day, including the sun...
It's really a shame people can't be at all rational around radiation and apply the same kind of one-drop rule that racists use to justify their own crazy statements and thoughts.
able to self land safely at all times.
Really looking forward to the day when mechanical failure is utterly impossible and physics can be dialed down to any level desired!
So the wave of drone accidents and regulations being reported on recently are starting to paint a great picture of why we don't have flying cars yet, nor will we.
