Well, they know what this adds up to. Oh... no they don't.
Slashdot is a game of politics and speed. It's speed-writing. Speed-editorializing. Screw-ups happen. It doesn't always play in my favor. Check out my recent history. I totally cratered doing that kind of thing with Apple. It's a game. It's entertainment. Sometimes it exceeds that, like that bit of poetry I wrote about getting a fix of freedom. Mostly though, like I said, it's speed-writing and sometimes you tag the wall.
Parent is a test of the humor AI in Windows 9.
Holy crap. First I've heard of Cortana. Googled it.. Is that for real??? It looks like Seven of Nine got fucked by Bob and this is the offspring. I can already see the protests from middle America. "Electronic boobies from Satan are sending us to Hell". How could anybody think that's a good idea?
OK, but what if they have a degree in English Lit and significant Open Source contributions relevant to the job? What if they have a CS degree but wrote stories for the student paper, and won an award for that?
So much work was done on both sides. They both have a talent pool. I've heard that "losers" often end up getting subcontracts from the "winners" for various subsystems, consulting, etc. Not sure if this will work with Boeing and SpaceX, but that's how it can work with the big MIC companies that were competing on a contract.
That indicates record breaking snowfall and 411 consumption for the coming winter.
Information wants to be smoked.
From The Right Stuff:
Gordon Cooper: You boys know what makes this bird go up? FUNDING makes this bird go up.
Gus Grissom: He's right. No bucks, no Buck Rogers.
You might even say this opens windows into trade mark law.
the libertarian solution would be to remove these blocks and open up the options.
We had such a situation at the turn of the 20th century. There were too many poles and wires. A more recent example is the fiber that was laid in the late 1990s. In some cities, each fiber company was allowed to lay its own fiber. This actually resulted in some streets being cut into just weeks after they were patched over from the previous fiber install.
Any sane solution to the Comcast problem requires a public infrastructure. The free market would work well re-selling service over that public infrastructure. That's what we're arguing about here anyway--free access to a public entity, namely the Internet. The irony of libertarians arguing for a pure free market on something that was created by the government never gets old.
I figured as much; but don't knock that. Talk to anybody who has wrecked the plastic on their sport motorcycle. If you could print that stuff at a reasonable price, that wold be HUGE.
Copper and silver have anti-microbial properties. This problem was solved centuries ago by pure dumb luck.
[nothing good] ever comes outa Africa.
Drink some coffee, google around a bit, and get back to us.
I take it to mean 1/3.
There's no way a country that small, and that close to the US could hold out as a communist nation in the face of unrestricted trade with the US - it'd become so utterly dependent on the US that it'd simply have no choice but to bow down to US wishes and culture.
Have you been to Berkeley? Joking aside, the US is starting to have more trouble keeping its own states in line on issues like pot, gun control, immigration and even monetary policy. Living next door and trading DVDs is no guarantee that you will always get along.
