If you really would have been interested in the source, you would have seen the BIG BOX below the data that says 'SOURCE' with a short description and a link ORIGINAL DATA that links to the organisation that provided the data. and after 2 minutes of browsing, I found this: http://mdgs.un.org/unsd/mdg/SeriesDetail.aspx?srid=749 where you can find information how the data was collected.

stop whining, start looking. thanks.

Lara Croft's Big Comeback 96

Posted by Zonk
from the work-it-lady dept.
Next Generation has a piece talking to Eidos marketing chief Bob Lindsey about the restoration of Lara Croft's good name. From the article: "Lindsey says the negative associations surrounding Lara will be swept away with a single decent iteration, arguing that Lara, far from being a one-decade wonder, has legs. 'Eidos has learned in spades that just because we make it, does not means they will come,' he says. 'Users are very discerning about what is a good experience and what is not. If you create a big franchise like Tomb Raider, one that has sold more than 30 million units globally, you can't afford to burn it with something that does not deliver.'"

So the real question would be: why (and how?) do you propose to write portable, cross-platform code for this processor anyway? In my experience, with devices as limited as this, you're almost always better off writing the code in hand-crafted assembler anyway, which given the size limitations is entirely possible. Heck, you could write the code in binray, if you wanted to. No portability there, I'm afraid...

Biology is the only science in which multiplication means the same thing as division.
