Ad hominem attack much? How's that debate strategy working out for you, there?
Nice anecdotes you have there. Win many debates much?
As long as the 64-bit version fully supports Flash on all platforms, I'm all for it. Like it or not, you need to support Flash, 64-bit or not.
I guess Red Hat and CentOS 6.x users are left in the lurch on this one.
In the rest of the civilized world, there's a reason we license livery drivers. That's how you can get a cab ride or black car ride without getting robbed, or worse. Taxi and Livery Commission (TLC): It's a thing.
This is true in the US as well. It's rather rare for trains to be stopped by the weather. Delayed, yes, but cancelled, very seldom.
To say that the same weather that stops airplanes will stop trains is just incorrect.
I think that AmigaVision is HyperCard for the rest of us.
If anything could or should be re-released, it's AmigaVision.
The engines aren't just developed by the Soviets in the 1960s. These engines were *built* in the 1960s and 1970s. The engine in the first stage is literally 40 years old.
As far as the government is concerned, they would do the same thing they did with Conrail, Lockheed Martin, and Verizon Business (nee WorldCom) when their predecessor companies were ready to close up shop: Underwrite mergers and acquisitions by guaranteeing private sector investors with federal dollars. It usually works.
They learned a bitter lesson when New York Shipbuilding closed and are unlikely to let something like that happen in the cloud industry.
This is a very real concern. They don't want you to know they work for the intelligence community. They work in a submarine as much as humanly possible.
But on a more important topic: I have *never* been in a Starbucks that does anything other than call out the name of the drink ordered.
This story baffles me. I'm calling B.S.
There certainly is an interlock that prevents the train from leaving the station unless all doors are closed. The automatic system takes this as a cue to release the brakes and depart the station
As built, the system was supposed to have automatic doors that would open like elevators if someone got in the way. This made operations difficult so the doors now just keep trying to close like every other system.
Completely false!! You're thinking of an Amtrak crash caused by two stoned Conrail engineers. That has nothing to do with this conversation in any way.
Washington DC has a very strong and proud tradition of African-American railway workers. From the old railways to the RF&P to the Metro and also operating the premier Acela Express maintenance facility in Ivy City, Washington DC has a very successful and proud heritage of railway workers.
No. They have operators who operate the doors and ensure the train does not leave the station with someone hanging out of a door, or other kind of emergency situation.
Are we having a serious conversation here? If not, I'll bail out now.
No. Both trains involved in the crash were in automatic mode. The only time in manual mode was when the unfortunate soul operating the striking train applied the emergency brake.
No. The old system was perfectly reliable except in certain slippery weather conditions. WMATA was in the process of replacing the old system with a new system from a different vendor. In the process they mismatched sensors with lineside equipment. The result was death and injury.
Please read the depositions. It reveals much more than most news reports say, with the possible exception of certain Washington Post articles.
