NATO was on 9mm for a long time before the 70s, and the US didn't switch to it until the 80s (w/ the Beretta 92 aka M9)
I have 1.5mb down DSL - its all I can get. Well, I can "get" 3 but I'm so far out at the end of the run it randomly disconnects 5 or 10 times a day and refuses to reconnect, requiring a power cycle of the "modem" (ISP provided) or router (and I've tried quite a few).
Seems like a boon for a open source LMS like moodle or canvas
Wonder if anyone is planning on doing an LTI with it... hrm.
Or even a high speed connection that could be used as part of a botnet?
Even if all you have installed is a browser, and you have no bookmarks or other personal data, you should keep your box secure to help prevent botnets, spambots, etc.
Get some force feedback joystick/game pad/input devices and it can remind you of a sybian instead too
I've been using Linux a long time (15 years) and as my only desktop for the past 10 years. While I like and prefer the Freedom part, I much more prefer the stability, the free part, the plethora of apps that actually behave and just do what they are supposed to do, etc. IOW, I'd probably be a Mac user if you take monetary cost out of the calculation.
Been done. DAG (German military ammo maker) made/makes plastic training rounds in 762x51 NATO (aka 308 Winchester), they can be lethal under 100 yards.
Or, go muzzle loader (not a gun per federal law then) and use a piezoelectric spark to ignite your powder, use a glass marble or other non-metallic item (ceramic?) as your bullet. Plenty effective at short ranges.
Well... on that note... Porsches did not have cup holders until late '03 or early '04. You are supposed to be *driving*, not sipping your Starbucks
However, it is a car designed to allow a driver to use its "flaws" to wring the absolute maximum of performance out of it.
Needless to say, this requires a driver that learns how to drive, and not the driver's ed that most get in high school.
FWIW I learned to drive in a Porsche (356c coupe) and when Dad bought a "replacement" in '88 (a '84 Carrera 3.2 factory turbo look) he immediately took a driver's course at the Sebring race track. Even the 356 with its whopping 75 horsepower is a performance car, and the rear engine design will let it get away from you if you are careless and drive it like it is a Buick.
Think it was more like a whelk's chance in a supernova...
When I was a young 'un, I wished my computer at home (trs-80, then 8088 and then 286 then 386 then...) could have fancy graphics like the arcade dwelling quarter eaters. Then in my early 20s, Quake came out, and I had a Voodoo card, and I started wishing arcades had LAN setups with killer machines and low pings and....
On the other hand, if you've ever worked with a Debian based system, mounting the fs on the sd card and editing
I'd expect that anyone playing with one of these is slightly familiar with Linux. And I'd expect that anyone teaching students with one of these would either give a good introduction to Linux or give very detailed lab instructions on initial setup and configuration.
Before I even booted the image of Raspbian I mounted the file system, set the IP I wanted to use, etc. Still haven't plugged a keyboard or attached a HDMI cable to it, just sshing in and doing stuff. Not sure what I actually want to do iwth it... which is how I got it (someone I know had 2 and just didn't know what he wanted to do with them)
Maybe in some state or municipality, but you have to remember that pistols were not legally required to have one until 1934 and rifles and shotguns weren't required to have one until 1968.
Of course, if a firearm *had* one (military, manufacturer put one on anyway for warranty work, etc) then removing it is a Big No No.
Making a firearm under federal law, if you are a individual and do not have a FFL and SOT for manufacture (SOT - special occupation tax) then you do not have to pay the 11% excise tax (Pittmanâ"Robertson Federal Aid in Wildlife Restoration Act of '37) or apply a serial number, although the serial number is strongly recommended for identification purposes.
