a good use for the HCF instruction
If the tab you're looking at is the source of the noise, that's easy enough. But I often have 50+ tabs open in several windows, and then good luck hunting down the culprit. This feature will be a God-send.
An interesting subject, foot-long essays for answers, no hedging or evasion and no clickbait drivel.
One company I occasionally do contract work for seems to have solved this by designing their new engineering office building to be constructed mostly of steel, including metal slats as sun shades on the windows. As a result, it's damn near impossible to connect to a mobile phone network while inside.
This plastic road would be easier to put down than bricks because it comes in large sections you can crane into place.
To get an idea of how bright the sun is at Pluto, try Pluto Time.
Sunlight is much weaker there than it is here on Earth, yet it isn't completely dark. In fact, for just a moment near dawn and dusk each day, the illumination on Earth matches that of noon on Pluto.
We call this Pluto Time. If you go outside at this time on a clear day, the world around you will be as bright as the surface of Pluto at noon
No. During the war, the fact they'd cracked Enigma was kept a secret to prevent the Germans from adopting better (potentially unbreakable) encryption.
After the war, yes. The British saw Enigma being used by various governments and decided to keep the secret a bit longer.
Colossus was never used to crack Enigma, it was designed for the Lorenz cipher machine which used a different principle.
Property values are going up
You say that like it's a good thing. Sure, existing owners may like it, but making housing less affordable has all sorts of undesirable consequences. It forces less affluent people to find housing further away which increases their commute time and increases traffic. It creates an underclass of people who are too rich to live in rent-controlled housing but too poor to buy a house.
My bad; Tomhath was referring to either a Delta IV or an Atlas V and making two errors in the process, the OP was talking about delta-V as in speed change. Serves me right for answering before reading the complete thread.
He meant either a Delta IV or an Atlas V, the heaviest rockets available in the US today.
What can possibly be bad about using a device that helps you to learn to shoot better? Detailed feedback seems to be a more effective method than a scattershot approach of pushups and getting yelled at.
Those "quick scans of the instruments" are quicker when you can glance at the HUD (which can be done without refocusing) instead of having to look down at the dashboard and refocusing your eyes.
"quick scans of the instruments" are the whole reason the HUD was invented.
So, it's the spiritual successor to Lotus Notes, then?
The battery pack for a Prius is carefully managed to stay in a charge state that allows for the largest possible number of recharge cycles (IIRC it stays between 50 and 80% charge). An electric-only vehicle doesn't have that option at the moment.
The revolution is in being easily able to create complex shapes. Traditional manufacturing methods for these sort of parts fall in one of two categories:
1. Labor-intensive using simple tools. E.g. Welding the frame from stock pipe and plate.
2. Amenable to mass production, but at a huge initial cost (for tools). E.g. casting, forging, stamping.
3D printing allows complex shapes to be created from a CAD model without lots of labor. This is great for small production runs (i.e. runs too small for 2. to be cost-effective).
