Yes, that annoys the shit out of me.
I used to work on the system which keep track of Navy flight records. We had to modify it to handle Navy personnel flying on the Space Shuttles. The system only allowed for 99.9 hour flight legs. Since shuttle flights were longer than 100 hours, we had to modify the system to handle them differently if the aircraft was one of the space shuttles. Talk about getting in your flight hours.
Google makes a search engine for each country. France wants results removed from other countries versions of Google, not just the French one. You can access the Irish version of Google from France if you want to.
Not showing up in Google does not remove it from the Internet. Make requests to the hosting site for removal. Then it won't show up in any search engine.
Google is allowed to censer whatever it wants. The company has its own right to do that. The difference is being forced to do it. A search engine that returns nothing is pretty useless, so they want to return as much as possible.
Yeah, they should get rid of the buses and have everyone go back to driving cars.
Right! The inventor, a Brit in New York City, called it the "Electric Device." We all need to go back to the original name.
No one has gotten streaming one machine to another to work anywhere near as well as just running on native hardware.
No, just two left feet.
Can we get a round of applause?
But the pictures are purdy!
In this replacement Earth we're doing, I've been given Africa to do and, of course I'm doing it with all fjords again because I happen to like them and I'm old-fashioned enough to think they give a lovely 'Baroque' feel to a continent, and they tell me it's not equatorial enough. What does it matter? Science has achieved some wonderful things, I know! But I'd far rather be happy than right any day.
As long as we are testing old hardware.
I may follow the same path. I use my old netbook as an emergency backup laptop. Mostly to take notes. Since it has a real keyboard, even if small, it is handy to have around. Great to know it can run a modern OS.
I keep a box of those. I hand them out to people when we talk about old technology.
