Not true. If they circled around, or flew 2 hours one direction and 2 hours back again, they'd be right where they started. Strait line seems logical, but if they planned it through knowing that telemetry data would still be sent then that would make it harder to find them.
What if the next presidential limo was 3000 mics of LSD, Donald Sutherland reading "The Cat In the Hat" and a disco ball?
Then clearly the world would be a better place.
I think we need both to compete.
Why? Given they both solve the same problem, but one has wide support and has shipped on devices, what use is the other?
Some of the early limitations proposed in Wayland were frankly, utter shit, and it was only pressure to lift their game that led to them being dropped.
Mir did not appear until way, way late in Wayland's game, and it appeared with a lot of terribly uninformed commentary from Canonical regarding how Wayland worked.
Anyway, regardless of position, you could probably make more money in the private sector if you are really motivated to go out and make the next big thing. But this sort of job is about more than compensation. It draws people that really believe in the cause (who eventually become disillusioned, and sometimes become whistleblowers) along with amoral sociopaths that get off on power. Unfortunate that the latter stand a much better chance of being promoted and the former of being waterboarded, seems backwards somehow, but oh well.
I suppose I actually do use it in a sense though - as that is where windows search has gone. But again I am hardly using that unusable excuse for an interface, it's just win-foobar on the keyboard and go.
I still find it funny that in 2014 Microsoft has now decided to sell an OS that is only usable from the keyboard, but it doesnt slow me down at all.
But the fact that electric car advocate geeks will take issue with the above scenario and will make endless excuses for their technology and will dismiss very legitimate practical concerns with electric says a lot about how detached from reality the electric car movement really is right now.
Poe's law strikes again.
Once you can replace an 18 wheeler's diesel engine with an electric drive system, then you've changed the world and made a real impact on emissions.
It's a pity Tesla's wireless transmission of electricity didn't work, otherwise all vehicles would be electric.
It is enough to supply them with a few regular tidbits though. "Luxury veges", as another poster said. A few tomatos, a few berries, stuff that can really spice up the staples, and stuff that people with more money than sense spend a FORTUNE on when you figure in that they are looking for this absurd little 'organic' label and paying accordingly.
Obviously it sounds like they must be importing a lot of their packages from offsite but it probably does produce enough to be profitable. But the main point to it is obviously atmosphere.
Again, this should all be covered by the company that wins the bid. If they don't like it, they shouldn't bid on the contract.
>because most of the requirements are out of date,
Contractor's fault. If the requirements are impossible, tell the customer and don't bid.
>were written by somone who had no idea what they were asking for
Same as above.
>or are missing critical pieces of functionality or details.
Same as above.
>Then you find out you need to integrate with a 35 year old Wang mainframe that runs some weird esoteric algorithm that no one alive understands.
If that's in the contract you signed, you need to do it. If it isn't in the contract, don't do it, or re-bid for that portion.
This would all be much simpler if both parties simply adhered to the terms of the contract. If the terms are unrealistic or impossible, don't bid.
But the experienced pilots did not make even one distress call or issue a single distress code. Why not? What prevented them from doing it?
The fact that someone actually went through the trouble to to produce this monstrosity is mind-boggling. But I guess it's their time and money so it's their decision.
I don't want anything for free. I don't trust anything that's being offered to me for free or for cheap. It just means the true price is hidden and that's creepy.
You can't trust the encryption they're offering you for money, either. You're going to have to handle encryption on your end.
Unless worker pay is determined by supply and demand, as in, say, a capitalist economy.
When workers become commodities, we call that slavery.
