They can all be smart. The one who figures it out is remembered.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
Built by smart people and less smart people and those who work in factories. Who is to say how smart any of those people are?
It is known that those who designed it were smart. Those who built it may or may not be smart.A thousand people brute forcing it are unlikey to break a code. A couple of people who know can use a thousand people to build a machine that can.
Have you seen how much it costs to become a graduate of anything in the US?
Perhaps the High tech companies should start training people. Even starbucks can train people to make coffee. Coding to the standard these companies seem to want is not that expensive and they may earn some loyalty.
Acctually it would be quite funny to have to use a code editor similar to wordperfect just to have the "display codes F4" popup to show the hidden meaning of all the whitespace
Part of the concept of writing is to make meaning unambiguous. It is a very hard problem even in mathematics which is pure in and of its self (unlike spoken language). Over thousands of years it was figured out how basic algebra could be communicated well. How precedent worked. How to present it without ambiguity (more complex math still has specialized peculiarities) and now someone wants to fiddle with that using hidden characters? Do they even know how many non visible characters are in Unicode?
There are many such organisations.
Be careful though as many have many more than one side to them. The lobbying is not necessarily what joe public thinks it is and is not necessarily what the companies paying into it think it is. The NRA is a prime example.
Why do politicians get good pensions and health care and if high up security for decades after they have left office? Hrmm.
That looks like a very very good return on investment
Bing. The bell rings and we have a winner. Not a very astute one as this is pretty much copypasta but sort of proves the point I suppose.
Also think of reducing the health care costs of older or retired soldiers. Hip/knee/shoulder replacements. They do not have to have been blown up of shot or anything violent.
Bones are not living. They are host to lots of living stuff but they are dead. There is lots of research and practice into building 3D frameworks for your body to grow back into. Not all three D printing is little plastic doodahs.
The manual does not even hint at why the experimental strong spaces may be a good idea. As far as I can tell they are a way to confuse people.
People do not learn arithmetic that way for a very good reason. You can't write it down reliably. I would claim that anything you cannot write down or write as plain HTML (as we are in the interweb era) is sort of broken.
I'm not sure where you are going with that. Both rovers are still active even if one is stuck. The solar panels seem to work for them even if there have been issues wrt dust on them. Curiosity is Nuclear powered as it is much much larger and has vastly larger power requirements to even move let alone perform experiments.
"The perverse effect of permitting police to go ahead with a mistaken reading of the law, she wrote, is to prevent or delay clarification of the law "
And it is a good point. If the police can just say "I did not understand the law in question" where are the rest of us left?
