No. St. Pancras is a Circle Line trip from Notting Hill Gate. That's my doorstep.
I don't know my Metro, that well. By Christ. Gare DuNord is a shorter ride than that, to Pere Lachaise. That the step of a friend...
You know very well, you can have a knob on your head, but speak good French, and get about. No French? Even Raquel Welch would have been dissed with a brush off.
You can easily put the gun somewhere safe.
Ah, but if the gun is somewhere safe, you're unlikely to be able to get to it quickly. For a gun to be viable for self defense, you need to be able to get it and load it in a very short period of time. Otherwise, you might as well invest in a squirt gun. If you put the gun somewhere that's actually safe from a child, you're also making it considerably harder for you to get access to the weapon quickly. Those critical seconds could mean the difference between life and death.
In any case, if I was going to use an electronic lock, I would much rather use a RFID lock over a fingerprint lock. There would be a much smaller chance for error.
That seems like a perfectly reasonable alternative. I certainly don't think laws need to mandate a specific technology, just a minimum certification level or some such, which different weapons could achieve in different ways.
Also, if you have children in the house, they should be taught gun safety and that if they even touch any gun without your permission, there will be hell to pay.
I completely agree with you about teaching your kids gun safety, and even though I don't intend to have guns in my house, when I eventually have kids, they will learn how to properly unload a firearm. The problem with having guns in houses with kids comes when they invite other kids over. Chances are, your kids' friends haven't been taught about guns, and they may not know not to touch them, or worse, might think that they're toy guns. That's why particularly in households with kids, having some form of electronic safety is a really, really good idea.
Those so thoroughly enamoured of Microsoft, that they endure Windows 8 as if it were not a non-functional eyesore? They'd also likely not venture far enough off the farm to Firefox - instead of scalding their retinas with IE.
San Francisco earlier than the mid-90's. Yes. Sorry you missed us...
Depends where. I live in SF most of most years. London is wonderful, if you got a bit of dosh, and I'm there a few months, pretty regularly. Back in Portobello area...
Paris is just a train ride away. Two tubes and a Eurostar? Downtown Paris, from your Kensington door step. Freakin' great town, if you've French friends. I don't think it would be livable, unless you spoke very good French, 'tho.
I met a traveller from an antique land
Who said: "Two vast and trunkless legs of stone
Stand in the desert. Near them on the sand,
Half sunk, a shattered visage lies, whose frown
And wrinkled lip and sneer of cold command
Tell that its sculptor well those passions read
Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,
The hand that mocked them and the heart that fed.
And on the pedestal these words appear:
'My name is Ozymandias, King of Kings:
Look on my works, ye mighty, and despair!'
Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare,
The lone and level sands stretch far away.
If you want to register a vehicle that you've purchased out of state in NJ, you have to pay sales tax on it, unless it was previously registered at your former address in the state where it was purchased. So basically, if you live in NJ and want a Tesla, you have to pay sales tax (and possibly registration fees) in the state you purchase it, and then pay sales tax AGAIN in order to register it in NJ.
That's true in most states. I got lucky in that I'd bought my car ~7 months before moving from New York City to Chicago...had I bought it 2 months later, I would have been stuck with sales tax in both states.
That said, as egregious as this is, it is nothing compared to the bullshit New York City and New York State inflict upon their residents. When I moved out of the state, I had to pay a punitive tax for having the audacity of leaving New York state. I kid you not. At around $3k, it's enough to hurt, but just under the amount that would make a lawsuit overturning this doubtlessly unconsitituional tax financially worthwile. That said, after this experience I will never willingly live in New York state again.
I've never said "I could do it better myself" and it not been true. But then again, I usually have the sense to not rewrite working code if I can help it.
Also, I've found code can easily be self-documenting, though the quality of that self-documentation is dependent on the quality of the code itself and the programmer who wrote it. Usually the only time it is necessary to document code, it is not the code that needs explaining, but the reason for why the code must exist in the first place. This exemption void where prohibited by company policy, when documenting an API, or any code to be consumed by web developers.
Until they get on planes...
Four days after a missing flight, a patent is approved by the Patent Office for maximizing dies on a wafer.
4 of the 5 Patent holders are Chinese employees of Freescale Semiconductor of Austin TX.
Patent is divided up on 20% increments to 5 holders.
Yeah. The mbox stuff is super portable. If you want to bother....
