We had 5 1/4" floppy floppies in the 80s. And saved data on audio cassette. And even had 2.88mb 3.5" floppies that weren't floppy. Heck, some of us even had *gasp* hard drives!
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
I did it by eliminating extra sugar. Doc warned me I was pushing hte pre-diabetic stage with my morning blood sugar.
No more sweet tea, coke, or adding sugar to my coffee. Sucked for about a week, after that, no problems, and I've dropped 30lbs with no real effort other than breaking the sugar habit in that first week.
Quit smoking 2 weeks ago, we'll see how that part goes and if I end up gaining weight back ('cause food will taste better, supposedly, or maybe just noshing as a replacement for having a smoke
This is a lot like what the Israeli screeners ask of you when you are being checked out.
However, the real difference is the Israelis actually have highly educated and trained people doing this checking and investigation.
Did Pero get none due to the winner of the state taking all of that state's EVs or did he not carry a single precinct? Think the "winner takes the state's EVs" rule kinda disenfranchises a lot of folks, esp in states like New York where the red rural areas *always* loose out to the Big D Big Apple.
Who cares. I found my Loki Publishing copy of Descent3d a few weeks ago, and I have access to a planetarium dome projector that runs at 1600x1600
Gonna see if I can get it running on a current kernel w/ a relatively current (ie, only 6 year old) nVidia card, then see about at least recording and then projecting on teh screen if thats what it takes...
In the same boat, at least on a presidential level. Unfortunately, I don't think we'll ever get any better on a national level, and we'll always have to choose between Kang and Kodos. Maybe in 2016 I'll vote Kang instead.
Indeed, if it comes down to having to pick the OS based on what software package(s) you need/want or might need/want in the future because of what a coworker/costudent did/does/wants to do, then I'd start with a Mac laptop. You can virtualize a machine (or three) if you need Windows, Linux, BSD, whatever other environment available, but AFAIK for non-Mac hardware there is no (legal) way to run OS X. Load it up with RAM, make sure you have several large external drives for backing up stuff, and off you go. If you knew you would absolutely never need OS X based software then get PC based and shop based on percieved hardware quality and warranty.
As to her study abroad stuff, may want to make sure whatever she ends up with the warranty can be used wherever is she is going to physically end up wtih the device. Would suck to be working in Europe but need to get a service call from the US, or having to ship back and forth for repair...
Heck the govn't has its own TLD and doesn't even use it for all of their hostnames...
Quick - where is the "official" place to get your free annual credit report? Is it freeannualreport.com or freeannualcreditreport.com or what? Wouldn't it be nice if it were creditreport.ftc.gov ? I (and most other slashdot users who get a little paranoid about this type of thing) simply go to the FTC site and follow the link from there, but having it on a
Finding the new bombs, etc. is well and good - and needed! But, there are still LOTS of issues with old mine fields still...
Might it be better to work on some (slightly) ground penetrating radar of some sort that can search for impact craters as well as large hunks of metal a few inches under ground? Solve a few issues at once that way....
they need to test the purity for trial
No they don't. Container weight, transport medium weight, etc. all get counted in as teh weight of the drug.
Think 20 micrograms of LSD, mixed into a half gram or so of water... on a 1 gram sugar cube. There you have someone who had 1.5+ grams of LSD...
Oh, lets stir the pot a little more...
If New York, and New York City, would allow individuals to take personal responsibility for their well being and carry a gun, I'm pretty sure that either the crime rate would drop, or there would be more than a few dead gang members who tried to attack random people....
Think you could just turn down the sensitivity of the mouse to test things....
If you are gonna extrapolate from one of the 10 commandments, perhaps you should just read it in the original Hebrew.
IIRC (and its been 30 years since I've read it and I know longer remember any of my Hebrew) the exact translation is more along the lines of "thall shal not murder". Killin' is ok when someone *needs* killin' but no outright murder
You left out
Education. Assuming you have a 4 year degree plus a few classes post grad, or a masters, or PhD, you can get a good job teaching at a community college or similar. Great hours, decent pay, decent benefits, and you can pass on your years of industry experience to the new blood.
On the flip side, near instant gratification of "getting it to work" is good for education - keeps students interested and involved if they have quick successs.
Of course, once it is "just working" *then* you can start getting your students to think about edge cases, logical errrors, validating user input, etc.
