Yes, a boss has a right to complain if you do not perform your job a. what b, when and c. how it is done to his or her specifications.
The problem comes when the school administrators micromanage said specifications in a political way that interferes with education.
OK, I realize I may skew a little older than many Slashdot readers, so here. Consider this your Easter gift:
Do you think you can use adamantium in a 3D printer?
Asking for a friend.
I had an uncle with a wooden leg and I thought it was a big deal until I found out my aunt had a cedar chest.
Unlike every previous launch, however, we the taxpayers are paying a fixed price to SpaceX, instead of the bloated cost-plus contracts that are large part of the reason why there hasn't been much progress in manned spaceflight in the last four decades.
Well, it's theoretically less expensive, but not yet. If you extrapolate out 50 missions, you start seeing SpaceX making an actual profit instead of a projected profit based on a fee stream.
My problem is that the entire thing still relies on government. If there is value in a "private" space industry, it hasn't been found yet.
Further, none of the profits ever materialize if you look at the external costs of the federal government already having done the hard work. Unless you believe SpaceX started with a clean sheet of paper and didn't make use of the past half-century of government space programs.
At best, you can say that there's a place for government and private industry to work together on the really big things like space travel. Without the government over-spending, there's good reason to believe we'd never have seen any space program at all. Or, convince me that without the initial public investment, any private company would have done the basic research required to send the first satellite into space.
The OpenSSL code was probably written back in the Win9x days when you really did need to do things completely different on Windows. Now that the industry-standard functions are supported
I was under the impression that fork() was still broken outside Cygwin.
Sorry friend, the design of the NASA space stations were done by NASA. They had private industry do the industrial part because they wanted to reward big political donations.
Either way though, it's a good thing we didn't wait for "private industry" to go to space, or we'd still be in the Sputnik stage.
You'll have to use your web browser, then, when in Gentoo: OneNote Web App
Wrong. It's only free if you want to be locked into Microsoft's cloud service. Did you honestly think anything from Microsoft would ever actually be "free" (speech or beer)?
You do NOT need a Microsoft account to use OneNote. You can store your notes locally, or on a fileshare, or anything that ES File Manager can get to.
The first space station went up in 1971. Forty-three years later, private industry figures out how to send a rocket up there. With taxpayers footing the bill.
John Galt is half a retard.
Reading their comments makes me want to install OpenBSD for more of my machines down the road. These guys seem to be thinking the right way about things.
