In the 90's, more Universities started Computer Engineering majors, which combined the digital half of a standard EE degree with the less theoretical half of a standard CS degree. (I know -- I was a year or two too early for CE, so I got an EE instead.) I would bet that any EE job that has a significant embedded software component is called something else now.
Please keep in mind that New York City is not it's own state. And the rest of the state is pretty steamed about the recent gun legislation that the Governor jammed through the state legislature. Some upstate sheriffs have even gone so far as to say they will not enforce that legislation, which is a pretty big step for law enforcement to come out and state in public. Gun rights are a twitchy subject here right now, I find it hard to think of any upstate politician who would support any restriction on 3d printing right now.
Unbeknownst to us, the probes are actually going to hit the secret underground Mayan moon base (where they went after the aliens gave them the technology to leave behind the famine on Earth that would have wiped them out), and they are going to attack on 12/21. You heard it here first!
An anonymous reader writes "Just after half past seven on the evening of Friday 19th October, history was made at the Destination Star Trek London event at the capital's ExCel centre; when Captains Archer (Scott Bakula), Janeway (Kate Mulgrew), Sisko (Avery Brooks), Picard (Patrick Stewart) and James T. Kirk (William Shatner) appeared together on a European stage. This momentous event, which had occurred just once before, at the Wizard World Comic Con in Philadelphia in June, not only lived up to the expectations of fans, but exceeded them by a good light-year."
Hey, where's Perry?
Nancy_A writes "An engineer has proposed — and outlined in meticulous detail — building a full-sized, ion-powered version of the starship Enterprise. The ship would be based on current technology, and would take about 20 years to construct, at a cost of roughly $1 trillion. 'We have the technological reach to build the first generation of the spaceship known as the USS Enterprise – so let's do it,' writes the curator of the Build The Enterprise website, who goes by the name of BTE-Dan."
Can you play a Video Game with no video?
Ties cut off circulation to your brain and make you dumber. Wear a tie for too long, and the only job you'll be qualified for will be in Management.
We Americans are great drivers! We don't need to "prepare" to drive in Europe at all. But tell me, what's that extra pedal for?
until I see the long form death certificate....
I'd love to read GWB's review of My Pet Goat.
Who wants their fate decided by a bunch of people who weren't smart enough to figure out how to get out of jury duty?
Seems to me you'd be better off implementing your Open-Source Hardware as FPGA's, anyway. You can get a lot of logic for a reasonable price, and the vendors are giving away the design tools for the cheap parts for free.
What is the current state of Open Source ASIC Synthesis and Layout tools? It does nobody any good to have an open RTL core if you need to pay the Synopsys tax (on top of the foundry NRE) to implement it.
That makes him better than all the Mets human pitchers. They should sign him!
