It's so hard to keep those C64s running these days!
What I wonder is how long it will be before some mega rich person(s) decides to build a semi-permanent offshore city, not so much a rig, more a case of a huge boat that is actually anchored to the ground and you take boats TO it.
There'd be loads of technical hurdles, but given the sheer size of such a construction, the issues of waves would be lesser, more so if it is designed properly to deal with them. (not to mention the use of large-scale wave guides similar in design to metamaterials, which is being tested on some oil rigs last I remember)
I'm not sure what the benefit of that would be over the very large mega-yachts the super-rich currently use - they're mobile, so they get the benefits of going to places around the world in luxury, plus being able to move out of the way of bad weather, etc.
I suppose the possible sheer _scale_ of a floating city has an appeal as a display of wealth to some.

In 2013, the researchers studied the emissions of more than 68,000 vehicles on the roads in three cities—Los Angeles, Denver, and Tulsa. They calculated the amount of pollution released per kilogram of fuel burned for the 2013 fleet and compared the rates to those that would have occurred if the 2013 fleet had the same age distribution as the prerecession fleet. For the three cities, carbon monoxide emissions were greater by 17 to 29%, hydrocarbons by 9 to 14%, nitrogen oxide emissions by 27 to 30%, and ammonia by 7 to 16%."

The bill allows the private communications of Americans to be scooped up without a court order and then transferred to law enforcement for criminal investigations.
The legislation effectively codifies and legalizes mass warrantless NSA surveillance on the American people, with barely a whimper of debate."

Warthogs? A-10s are some of the least-expensive, easiest to maintain aircraft in the USAF inventory, and their role in CAS is unrivaled.
Cut a handful of F-35s and you've saved about as much money and probably made our military more combat ready.
Sadly, no new A-10s have been made since the mid-80s. I'm not against keeping the A-10 around, but to do so effectively requires re-starting long-dead production for planes and parts, which is no small - or cheap - matter.
Wrong timing for it, though. While our nation is under attack by Isis and Syria, this increase would be better spent on improving our dwindling military capabilities..
Dwindling? CITATION NEEDED.
They do not like anything that winds up with them selling fewer electrons. They don't even like cogeneration. When I was a reporter, writing about the electric industry about ten years ago, at the time the industry was saying they would help large businesses implement cogeneration to achieve greater efficiency, I learned about the "cogen killers" - people working for the electric producers who would on the sly, go and pressure large businesses to NOT implement cogeneration. This industry is rife with this kind of thing, so I would suggest you take anything one of their PR people says with a gigantic grain of salt, and then start following the money.
Webmail is webmail is webmail. WTF is Inbox and how is it different from Webmail or IMAP?
Inbox is a merge of Gmail with Google Now. I'm hoping they add Keep functionality to it. If they do that, I'll probably switch over full-time.
Median energy density in waves is too low in most places.
I don't predict that will be a problem for the locations they're likely to be planning on.
Just keep that famous saying in mind, "Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from a cheesy special effect." This even happens with nature - ever seen an aurora or a video of one? It looks like really shitty CGI, but it's real. *shrug*
I had forgotten how featureless the stock launcher is. Gads. I feel crippled. I also really liked CyanogenMod's Privacy Guard feature.
I will not miss the bugs of CyanogenMod, though, that's for sure.
I'll be searching for a replacement launcher ASAP. Any recommendations? I used to use ADW back in my Gingerbread/Froyo days...I'll have to see if it's been updated for Lollipop/ART.
You used the phrase 'despite knowing' but I think you meant to say 'because'. Obama has a very bad habit of appointing foxes to guard the henhouses. I voted for him twice myself. It's not like his opponents would've been better, though. *sigh*
I bet there will be a lot more nudity than I remember in the books.
Yeah, my books didn't have any pictures _at all_!
