I think Java is being used correctly (in the PDF/paper http://arxiv.org/pdf/1509.0774... ) and the article linked, does not confuse the terms.
Isn't NSW the place that also made it pretty much illegal for two "bikey blokes" to ride together?
Is that when gay couples ride tandem bicycles?
If they have a TV, then all they need is this: Rasberry PI. $30
OK. Actually, it's a little more than that for the version that has WiFi and enough USB ports. Otherwise you would have to add a powered USB hub, which again adds to the cost.
USB Keyboard $1
USB Mouse $1
SD Card $1
Micro USB Cell phone charger $5
You have a fully functional Linux desktop computer.
Not until someone capable has made a significant investment of time to install and set up the OS, you haven't. Yeah, for you or me it would be no problem to fix one up, but how about for an entire class of schoolkids? And you left out an HDMI cable to attach it to the TV, and we would both be ASSUMING the kid has access to an HDMI TV which he would not have to fight the parents and siblings for to get primetime evening use for homework.
Sure you can spend more and get a better computer, but this one will get it done on the cheap.
I'm tuned in to the sentiment, but the way I realistically check prices, the total cost for all items mentioned would be pretty close to $70 rock bottom, if not more, PLUS labor, which is pretty sad when you think about it. And when you were done you would have this fragile thing dangling from wires which could easily get knocked on the floor and stepped on.
I WANT this to be viable, oh how I want it, but realistically, um
Umm.. where did you check, a local "rip you off" pc shop? Sigh...
The old rasberry pi is cheaper and has two usb, that's all you need. That's all I need on each of the rasberry pi's that I use for this purpose. Personally I prefer wired networking on a non portable device. Don't students get ethernet connections in their dorm rooms? Most places they do.
Let me shop for you:
Mouse: $0.37 http://www.amazon.com/JennyShop-Pastel-Turtle-Scroll-1000dpi/dp/B00FOWQ76U
Keyboard: $4.75: http://www.amazon.com/Lenovo-SK-8825-104-key-USB-Keyboard/dp/B007V6YIGI I have this keyboard on one of my machines, it's fine. I did underestimate the price by $3.75 I guess.
4GB Sandisk SDHC card: $0.01 http://www.amazon.com/SanDisk-Micro-Flash-Memory-adapter/dp/B0018Z7Y28 I use a sandisk microsdhc with one of my pi's. This 4GB model is overkill, but it will do the job. Power adapter: $2.99 http://www.amazon.com/ReadyPlug®-Wall-Charger-Samsung-Galaxy/dp/B00NVYQWOK
If you do want that USB HUb, you'll be glad to know it's a whopping $0.20 http://www.amazon.com/White-4-Outport-480Mbps-Splitter-Adapter/dp/B012LBKR58
Sure, you could get better of everything on the list, but you don't HAVE to. If you want a computer on the cheap, you can do it with a pi, really cheap. $35.33 (with the hub) plus shipping. If you could live with used parts I think you could do even slightly better, perhaps even on the pi.
There aren't any memory leaks when you write in C?
Maybe you have them, but I don't. That's because my C-peen is larger than yours.
Re: Old WRT54G going flakey. Bad switching PSU wall-wart (try a different one), bad filter caps near the DC input jack (visual inspection). In that order.
Probably the filter caps. That's the best bet. Problem is, I've tried a whole lot of different power supplies, and I've NEVER had a WRT54G be reliable. And I own three of them, and I have owned two more which have been thrown away over the years. They're just a shitty router like most other routers, and I mean all versions, too. They became popular amongst nerds because you could reflash them with other stuff, that's it. Even brand new ones out of the box were never reliable.
I had a wrt54g years ago. It was okay at the time but that's a venerable unit. I upgraded to a D-Link DIR-825 when 802.11n came out and haven't had any more problems since. Sure, there is no dd-wrt or openwrt for this router, but the stability has been worth it.
Is the extra spying that comes with it included in the Cost?
Yes, that is free with all alphabet products.
The only thing I want to know about it is can it self restart when it locks up? Or is that something that no router co is ever going to fix?
Maybe you need to replace your router? I'm pretty sure I haven't had to reboot mine ever except when I was setting it up.
I guess this would not work on optical gyros?
No, to take out drones with optical gyros, folks will be using light wave guns, instead of sound wave guns.
If you give MacGyver two fistfuls of pen pointer lasers, duct tape, chewing gum, and a Wonderbra, he will MacGyver you an array laser cannon that will be able to take out an optical gyroscope drone. And a lot of other things that don't have optical gyroscope drones.
Are you kidding? He could defeat a stealth fighter with all that equipment! Too much.
Agreed, Jar Jar was awful, but anyone trying to make this into any kind of race issue should be tied and quartered. Really, nothing better to think about? Fuck them.
Can Jar Jar please be transsexual?
Why do you think they are not?
