And because he tried to send an email while the network was down, nobody received it until the network was fixed.
Better solution: Disconnect the internet connections of anyone involved in the case, *including* the judge. As far as they'll be able to tell, the video was removed.
By the transitive property, yes.
I refuse to use iTunes. I refuse to buy any Apple device that will require me to use it. Any time I do have to use one anyways, I find a workaround (like finding a way to stream from VLC to AirPort). And even on my Mac (never paid a dime to Apple for it), on my OS X partition, I don't use iTunes.
It's that bad.
Story is about a spy, James Bond is a spy, Bond uses crazy gadgets, nerds love crazy gadgets.
Doesn't emacs *have* a web browser, or is that being added in the next version?
Memory latency. Beowulf clusters are good for things that are highly parallel *and* have a high degree of memory locality, ie. you rarely need to make memory calls between boxes.
True supercomputers use high-speed interconnects between systems for this reason, usually using something like Infiniband or a weird proprietary system, and usually with some network topology with numerous inter-system links. This gives them much lower latency when one system uses data in memory in another system.
The point was supposed to be that one of the three version numbers wasn't really being used - the first number changed maybe twice, while major updates were just bumping up the second digit over and over.
However, as you've pointed out, now they've started ignoring the second digit, going straight from 20.0.1 to 21.0.0. So nothing's really changed at all.
You, and several other haters, are falling for a variant of the sunk cost fallacy - that, because it was so expensive to get him into space, every second of his time needs to be occupied in "useful tasks".
That's not how it works. There has to be some "down time", both as a buffer against the "useful tasks" taking longer than anticipated (like that ammonia leak they had to fix a few days ago), and just because human beings cannot be working every waking minute.
The cost/benefit analysis included those necessary "down times", and it was deemed worth it to send him into space. This music video was not planned for, but there was sufficient extra time found for it, and I'm sure once again, it was deemed more productive than anything else he could do (remember, a lot of "productive work" requires new equipment to be shipped up there, which is expensive).
Does everything need to be about money? Can we not do things for the sake of doing them?
Was that not the great driving force behind the space race? We may have done some science on the moon, but it was hardly worth the billions we spent. But it was worth it to go there, simply for the sake of going there.
In an odd little coincidence, the first time I ever listened to the original version of this song was yesterday. What can I say, I don't listen to much music, not from that era (yes, yes, I'll get off your damn lawn now, old man).
I have now listened to the Commander Hadfield version more times than the original. And, while Bowie is undoubtedly more musically talented, there's something about Hadfield's version that makes it seem more... emotional? Real? Something like that. Whatever the reason is, I prefer it over the original.
I do have to run UT2004 as admin in order for LAN play to work. I'm not sure why. There's probably another way, that doesn't involve blanket admin access, but "run as admin" is easier.
Runs perfectly fine singleplayer without admin rights, though. And it's hardly a "recent" game (and it's not even the Steam version - CD from the Unreal Anthology). I've never encountered a game that requires admin rights just to run.
Right now, Steam is using 5.5MB of RAM, sitting between "Bluetooth tray" and SSHFS. DWM is using 29MB, Explorer 38MB, and Firefox 335MB (five tabs). Opening a Steam window brings it up to 23MB, still an absolutely tiny amount. Even when doing multiple simultaneous downloads, I've never seen it go over 200MB of RAM.
As for disk space, my Steam folder is currently 346GB. However, 345GB of that is the steamapps folder, which contains all game data. Everything else - executable, graphics, crash dumps, resources, cache - is a mere 787MB. Considering how many game icons that has to include (I kind of have a lot of games), that's pretty impressive.
Seriously, what do they spy on? There's the hardware survey, which is anonymous, and at least as I recall, opt-in. There's "recording amount of time in games", which a) isn't particularly useful information, b) isn't particularly accurate, and c) can be routed around via offline mode if it really bugs you.
Compared to even the spying Firefox does (if you opt in), that's really not much.
Right now, only one, but only because I'm giving
