silly. in current weather, i'd put a couple of pillows in there, take a Kindle and wait for the summer to pass me by.
With over 2 million sold the news of a RPi upgrade is big news. The basic specs haven't changed much, same BC2835 and 512MB of RAM and the $35 price tag. There are now four USB ports which means you don't need a hub to work with a mouse, keyboard and WiFi dongle. The GPIO has been expanded to 40 pins but don't worry you can plug your old boards and cables into the lefthand part of the connector and its backward compatible. As well as some additional general purpose lines there are two designated for use with I2C EEPROM. When the Pi boots it will look for custom EEPROMs on these lines and optionally use them to load Linux drivers or setup expansion boards. What this means is that expansion boards can now include identity chips that when the board is connected configures the Pi to make use of them — no more manual customization.
The change to a micro SD socket is nice, unless you happen to have lots of spare full size SD cards around. It is also claimed that the power requirements have dropped by half to one watt which brings the model B into the same power consumption area as the model A. This probably still isn't low enough for some applications and the forums are no doubt going to be in full flow working out how to reduce the power even further.
There are some other minor changes, comp video is now available on the audio jack and the audio quality has been improved. But one big step for Raspberry Pi is that it now has four holes for mounting in standard enclosures — this really lets the Pi go anywhere.

where Python Style Guide encourages readability, Ruby's one encourages encrypting your code into a messy string of colons, semicolons, various braces, hashes, percentiles, ampersands and other special characters.
so, even though what you say is true, I find Java code way more readable than Ruby
I shudder every time i need to use ruby (in Chef Cookbooks)
regarding the "equivalent to 100W" practice; what I find most annoying is when I buy one where "equivalent to 100W" really IS equivalent to 100W. for example, I bought a 20W fluorescent bulb for my hallway and now, every time I turn it on, I can see my x-ray skeleton being burned into the wall next to me.
similar situation here. earbuds fall out AND i've yet to find headphones big enough for my ears. (to go around them and not press tops of my ears against my head. and no, i'm not from Vulcan)
Today's era of online play has all but done away with them, but the need for a level playing field isn't the only reason for their decline: as one veteran coder points out, why give away cheats for free when you can charge for them as in-app purchases? "Bigger publishers have now realised you can actually sell these things to players as DLC. Want that special gun? Think you can unlock it with a cheat code? Nope! You've got to give us some money first!""

they've got ReFS instead - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/...
libre/openoffice base can both be used as a frontend to a mysql database. i'm surprised so few people know about it.
i'm not sure they believe this in africa but this is most definitely common knowledge in india.
yepp, OT but i'll add my bit. when I was in Paris a few years ago, I was served my "well done" steak so raw it was still twitching. i returned it twice to have it cooked; to no avail. I then called the waiter again and while he and the chef were watching, I wrapped the steak in the tablecloth, squeezed and asked them to explain why the fabric was turning red. at that point half of the staff ganged up on me and tried to tell me I didn't understand what a good steak was. well, f*ck you very much - I decide what I like and blood dripping cold fibrous chewing gum ain't it! (especially at 30 Euro a piece)
thank you for the link, those stories are rather fascinating.
I wasted 10 hours of my time downloading this game and the iso image didn't even have the crack!!! steer clear of the torrents until skidrow has a release.
wtf? how can you concentrate on anything other than this piece of information: "because the $80/month plan came with unlimited data"
i didn't even know tariffs could cost that much; especially in the land of the cheap. in some european markets it's normal to pay 10-15 Euro for unlimited data on a 1 month rolling contract and even less if you sign up for longer. and i do mean unlimited. my provider simply throttles the download speed to 512Kbps after 10GB.
Oh For F***s Sake, not this S**t again! Serves me right for finally succumbing to the cloudy temptation.
I refused to use any of the xxxxBoxes and AmazoGoogDrives that are so popular nowadays as I don't trust any of them. I held out until my wife installed "ubuntu one" on her phone last month and set it up so that whenever she took a picture on her phone the photo immediately appeared on my computer. Within a few days, my whole family started using it on their phones and computers.
Our mothers-in-law religiously check the albums on one.ubuntu.com every night too see all the new pictures of their grandchildren and now this! Never, I say, NEVER will I put my trust in these EEEEeeeeeevil clouds again!
at the beginning of the movie "The First Contact", Picard has a dream about one. and then he wakes up all scared thinking - what the hell was that room?!
