State Codes may limit/restrict use of kites/drones/models/rockets/etc. (Michigan comes to mind), but you are correct, the FAA has published no limitations on such devices. Yet.
Doom, that's awesome. That's pretty much when I started getting bored with games and the race for frame rates.
That was a fun game, though. Flight sims were more my thing. I enjoyed the heck out of F-19 Stealth Fighter (yeah, C64) and FPS:Football. Wish I could find a working copy of the latter. Also, been looking for a flight sim I had purchased, but never got to install (would like to see what I missed) as hardware evolved too rapidly and backward compatibility was super sketchy at that time. Wish I could remember the name of that sim.
I'd get one if it could do all of these things:
1) Tell time in at least three time zones at one glance (local, UTC, home)
2) Must be solar powered (those kinetic watches are crazy pricey) -- My last trip to a jeweler for a battery change was wasted with a 45 minute sales pitch for Melaleuca. No thank you!
3) Must NOT be crazy pricey (I'd rather spend $100 for a GOOD watch)
4) Must, absolutely must be light and comfortable (ideally of a size that would be considered large for a ladies' watch, yet smallish for a mens' watch)
I'd be flexible on these:
1) Be able to tell the time of sunset, sunrise, civil twilight, and anything else interesting as far as sunset/sunrise is concerned, but must be able to give LOCAL times without me resetting the location manually each time.
2) Exercise tracking ability (obviously GPS/calculator/etc/)
3) USB/Bluetooth/IR connectivity
Things I really DO NOT need:
1) An E-6B built-in to the face.
2) Fancy/flashy face and/or band
You stole my thunder, I was going to say that there are devices that can do that now without sucking down 200W. And, they don't really cost a bundle either. Especially if one digs around on eBay.
I've seen planes that use floppies, Zip, and now, my current ride uses an Ethernet connection between a laptop and the file server.
You're post makes me wistful for IUMA again. Anyone know of something similar these days?
I have a feeling the FBI would not actively discourage this, particularly when a honeypot is so tasty.
<sigh> Parent is the real one.
I'm on a tiny screen (1024 wide) and had to scroll side-to-side to read the article.
Great content, but wish I had a bigger screen.
A thousand monkeys standing around a box of parts would "accidentally" build a computer long before I figure it out. I'm impressed by what this guy did.
$35 (1968) is roughly equivalent to $73.80 to $107.00 (1980) using various indices
or, going the other way:
$850 (1980) is roughly equivalent to $277 to $403 (1968).
The value of gold was not allowed to inflate for several years (fixed at $35/oz. in 1934). John Seabrook wrote an article in 1989, Invisible Gold that briefly touched on the value of gold from the Gold Standard through the 1980s.
The post I replied to suggests stopping at the first collision. Perhaps the question was poorly worded. I would like to know how many collisions occur for a given hash. Could this be calculated without a brute-force attempt or is that the only way?
What fascinates me about this scenario is how many collisions can be found during this brute-force process?
I don't think you know any pilots because if you did, you'd know that this little trick doesn't work. [citation] rthille is correct.
(It's working for me from NYC area at the moment.)
Michigan, Florida, and Kentucky here. No problems.
