That wouldn't constitute piracy would it? It's just digital representation of a a physical object. =)
Blending thumb drives or Hard Disks?
Or doing paid placements in movies for such? Seems like a Hollywood spy movies would make a great place for a product placement.
So what your saying is we should find some false hope?
I'm not sure that's what I'm saying...
I'm more interested in the idea that maybe there is an evolutionary (aka survival/aka species propagation) advantage in believing in a higher power/God/gods.
I'm not trying to be sarcastic. What if the concept of 'religion' or belief in the intangible acts as a _pressure-relief_ valve for the mind?
The popular thing is to consider having religous beliefs as 'weak'. But maybe there is a value in believing in a higher power? "Why am I here...", "what happens when I die...", etc.
It seems having a belief in a higher power can make it easier to cope with some of the larger questions. *shrug*
Content wise, I remember a while back there was a guy who was firing home made rockets off on the Great Salt Flats. @#$@ YES, I want to see videos of stuff like that.
Or videos of the IIS passing in front of the sun or something. Product reviews, meh, not so much. Before you post a video, think to yourself... "IS THIS 100% BADASS enough to need a video?" If not, then it's a story. If yes, then post the video!
Thanks for soliciting feedback.
Also, if you REALLY AND TRULY don't accept money for posting review stories, please MAKE IT KNOWN THAT YOU DON'T ACCEPT MONEY FOR POSTING STORIES. I saw soulskill or someone say that the very idea makes you "chuckle". Well, 99% of the readership believes that you do this (I did until I saw soulskill's comment above), and you would be doing yourselves a favor to get some good PR out there, and fight back, explaining that you actually don't take bribes for posting stories!
Thanks for a great 10 years... here's to hoping I'm still reading in another 10 years, not watching videos about hoodies!
in a nearby parking lot?
I smell a black market opportunity!

Check out the wikipedia article for supercomputers, and you'll see DOE mentioned.
Tools like this could help with analysis and finding certain data sets. IIRC, regex are already used in DNA sequencing. There is probably a similar application and use for tools like this with their data.
Hit 'em where it hurts.
I suspect the submitter came in through the search USPTO system.... I had to click "Next" several times to get to this entry.
