Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
the only difference I can see is some formatting and the words "... the author said." at the end of the summary.
And the headline, which originally read "Frequent gamers have brain differences, study find[s]". This is much closer to what TFA says.
[...] Sysinternals software on their download site. (Which many viruses, worms and malware utilized.)
I know that sounds as if I am trolling, but I am genuinely interested. Do you have any citation for that?
Good luck with simulating pulling the mic cord out of the guitar output jack and using it as a pick while it's still hot.
I want to know what the hell the microphone cord is doing plugged into the guitar output in the first place. Nevermind that you're also talking about an XLR vs 1/4" plug disparity...
Even if we ignore the discrepancies and assume it should read "...pulling the cord out of the guitar output jack..." the result would be... silence. I don't believe the sound of an unplugged electrical guitar could be heard in the rest of the band still playing at full volume.
There seems to be some confusion because TFA doesn't cite its source correctly (emphasis mine).
A field test conducted outside the building located at 82 Boulevard Lascrosses demonstrates how the system will function. Here, sensors have been placed just below the surface of the road under half a dozen parking spaces. The high-tech probes, which are mounted 25 centimeters (9 inches) apart on a coaxial cable a hand's width under the bitumen
The information gathered is sent to a server, which can keep track of around 2,500 to 3,000 sensors.
- there are only a few sensors buried at this time.
- The server they use can keep track of about 3,000 sensors.
- In the future they will be able to monitor all 15,000 parking spots.
Stuxnet targets specific frequency converter drives — power supplies that are used to control the speed of a device, such as a motor.
[...] the centrifuges need to spin at a precise speed for long periods of time in order to extract the pure uranium. If those centrifuges stop to spin at that high speed, then it can disrupt the process of isolating the heavier isotopes in those centrifuges . . . and the final grade of uranium you would get out would be a lower quality.
7. Ribbons. Say what you will, I'd rather have toolbars... at least make it an option!
The last time I looked, the Ribbons were provided by the application (or rather, the used libraries) and not the OS. An application with a Ribbon also has that Ribbon on XP.
Based on the cost of Windows XP ($260). And based on the cost of other OSes that come with no support ($0), in my estimation, the $260 should get me approximately 20 years of support for XP at the rate of approximately $1.50 a month, which is actually pretty high to pay in terms of support for any general software product.
No it's not. Look at the support rates for other software products. Many of them come with no support and/or updates at all. Support rates frequently range from 20% to 50% of the original price per year.
Or, to follow up your comparison with "OSes that come with no support", I have not seen anyone who supports a Linux installation for $1.50 per month.
