Smart, probably preparing for an insanity defense.
He means that a business should hold its own belt up, and not be financed via the government by allocation of taxes.
In short, charge toll and let them pass the charge on to consumers via their products/services pricing.. That's the capitalistic way, not the commie state taking taxes from personal traffic and going light on business driving. (that being said, in Europe it is the same. Consumers pay much more for driving (gas taxes and direct road taxes) than business drivers)
That being said, I would argue that normal erosion factors (like rain/flood/freezing) are a bigger factor than 1%
Highspeed trains are mostly interesting for midlong distances (till 1000 km), and specially from urban center to urban center.
1) trains are faster.
2) but more importantly trains still move reasonably fast in and near urban centers
3) While budget flights (if they happen to go from/to where you want) are cheaper they often require extended checkin times and airport to center commute negating time advantages
Note that the TGV network stretches into neighboring countries like Belgium and Germany (e.g. Aachen) too, and connects to German ICE. The Netherlands have a branch too, but it is not running full speed yet. The Netherlands and Belgium are much smaller than France, but more densely populated.
PAE is mostly for kernels and a few select apps that page out buffers (like SQL Server). It is not a general flat >4GB memory space for applications.
And yes I remember how it was with the 8086. Which is why I try to forget segmentation for general purpose programming
Emacs is a great OS, but IMHO the editor sucks.
While I mostly use Firefox, I have an old mac mini, and there I use the 3rd party "Keep firefox working on PowerPC, because they won't" TenFourFox
Hitler was a failed painter, not a genetic experiment.
My guess is that even if this is all true (IOW, the US has no charges), he will be arrested and extradited to the UK for the rape charges anyway
I mainly use it as always-on machine in addition to the filer. The main reason is that with a filer you are more conservative. OpenVPN, postgresql db. I also have some applicationservers (3-tier) developed for it, but that is not production yes.
Most important bit is long time usability and support, features are only secondary. In that RPI is unique.
I think he meant to say the news post (on slashdot) was slow in the coming, since he already installed/updated etc.
Marketing is indeed not just about dolling up old hat. It is primarily about finding an audience, and give feedback to implementers about what the customer might want.
1) I think the RoR and Zope examples are totally irrelevant, since they were in a "hot" area at the time. Minimalistic WMs are not, unless you get default on the next Raspberry Pi)
2) I think the "I can't code for sh*t" argument of the original can only be invoked if you have at least 2 years of experience in a documenting team. Just to make sure you know what your talking about when calling people to invest their free time.
Then clip the server aspirations.
Since 18 months updates is simply not enough.
Hmm, that could be understood wrong. I'm not saying the US military is like the SS.
I'm just saying that cases like this, and situations like Guantanamo Bay are sawing on the pillars of safety measures that were meant to avoid WW-II excesses to ever happen again. I think that is a wrong signal to send.
