True about the plugins. Mozilla should do something else with their version numbers so that fast, minor updates don't bump the major version and break plugins.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
If the version number were 4.0.2 instead of 5.0 Enterprises wouldn't be getting their panties in a bunch over this.
Support for Hybrid GPU setups in the kernel has been supported for the last few releases. If you google for something like "linux gpu switcheroo" you should be able to find what I'm talking about. Yes, it was called "Switcheroo" by the original author of the code. The primary way of switching GPUs is through the
I believe that forum was shut down, and moved to Bioware's new Social site along with the Dragon Age and Mass Effect forums. If it's no longer possible to login and use that forum, the database probably should have been scrubbed of passwords and CD Keys and the like.
Heh, good idea. You can probably tell I'm a Computer Science major not a Physics one. Real world interactions aren't my style.
Keep in mind that this is 14% of _support calls_. Using the same logic as the summary, you could say that Android phones have fewer software issues than other phones because only 86% of calls are related to software. That is assuming there isn't a third option in support calls.
The article even states this, they don't have shipment numbers for devices so they don't have data for the phones that don't require support. Their sample is only phones that people are having problems with in the first place.
It wouldn't be hard to set up a self-driving vehicle if you can make the assumption that all cars on the road have some sort of wireless signal that the self driving car can use. For instance, if the car ahead of you is slowing down, it could be broadcasting it's speed to other cars behind it, so the self driving car won't plow into it. There could also be construction signs that tell cars about construction zones and lane closings. You could stick these on stop lights too. For navigation, it could use a GPS perhaps with some electronics on the road to assist with going around curves or marking lanes.
I'd hate to be a pedestrian though. I can't think of a reasonable way for self driving cars to detect people crossing the street without people having to wear bracelets that broadcast another signal. It'd be cooler in my opinion if all of this was done without image recognition which is always a fuzzy issue.
Gold farmers on WoW are using stolen accounts. They don't really go out and make their own.
We start counting from 0 here.
OpenSSL has a blowfish cipher, which I assume doesn't have the same bug. If your system has OpenSSL, but not OpenWall, would PHP use OpenSSL?
The OpenWall site says that PHP 5.3 uses it, but is it included in the PHP binary so OpenSSL isn't an option?
I think this argument is a red herring meant to mislead us.
You're supposed to vote for the party. No matter who the candidate is, they will vote based on the party's platform more than 95% of the time. If you agree with that party's positions, it's a safe bet to vote for whoever they put up as a candidate.
If you truly don't like the candidate, vote against him in the primaries when they're selecting their candidate.
Even Mr. Non-partisan Maverick John McCain voted with the Republicans something like 95% of the time.
Don't ever vote based on your opinion of the individual. Even if the guy is a child molester, he'll give you what you want if elected. If you vote for the other party because your candidate has questionable morals, the other guy is just going to screw you over with how he will vote in the legislature.
To quote Obama in TFA
"We've made incredible progress on education, helping students to finance their college educations"
What progress? I'm still paying huge amounts of money for college. Why can't it be free like it is in Finland or other European countries? Oh right, that's socialism. Didn't mean to rock the boat too much.
Come on LulzSec. Do something a bit more sophisticated than SQL Injections and XSS.
