It sounds good, but flat rings may not always make a solid connection, though they could be made to be grooved or wavy like a car clutch. But there is the problem that the magnet could lose strength over time.
The market itself isn't dying - the number of users remain the same, it's just that people are hanging onto their PC's longer because they don't see any need to upgrade, so PC sales are going down 10% year on year. 10 years ago, someone who bought a PC for doing tax returns, sending business letters, balancing household budgets would do so every 2 years. Now they will hang onto that PC for 5 or more years. So sales will likely drop by 65% or more simply because of the long lifespan of the CPU and graphics card.
Fortunately, it wasn't like that 15 years ago. It seems the universities expanded just to take on as many people as possible, and employers have absolutely no way of telling whether that person is a good deal or not.
Yes, you can block the publication of rivals research papers by getting on a committee. If you are particularly powerful, you can even instruct a supervisor to drag out a PhD for four or more years and railroad that person out of their field of interest.
The human retina actually does some pre-processing before the pixel data (input from rods and cones) goes further along the visual circuits. One of the most basic tasks is edge enhancement and based on red-green, blue-yellow and intensity values based on a large sample of input data:
In image processing speak, these are called edge detection and contrast detection. If there is an intensity difference between two areas, then one is darker than the other, and vice versa. This difference gets amplified close to the border between the two edges. So the human eye can immediately tell there is some kind of edge. For the application of painting, having a split view would allow the artist to immediately tell when the source color (the scene) and the destination color (the painting) matched. Professional cameras use a similar mechanism for perfecting focus:
So the artist could just start off with a very basic poster paint color scheme, then gradually add the shadows and the highlights.
The greatest advancement in the art world was during the Renaissance period, when they finally understood how perspective worked. Before then, it was a mystery how objects became smaller the further away they became. Until they had algebra, it wasn't possible to really formulate how inverse distance laws or explain concepts like perspective lines. Then all sorts of new techniques became possible. Some methods included pinhole cameras projecting onto tracing paper screens.
That includes effects like ambient occlusion (+16 rays), shadowing (+1 ray per light source, maybe more for soft shadows)? The advertising industry already use real-time ray-tracing systems (with a render farm in a back room), so it's only a matter of time before that technology gets squashed into the space of a console.
Not so much the class system but more a problem of trying to filter out the applications from various colleges that have set up above take-aways - "The New Delhi school of International English -learn english while you work". Then you get a whole level of requirements like "must be from a red brick university" or "must be from a Russell group university". Other times your Honours degree (advanced final year) must be a 2:1 or 1st. Even then many employers just want the brightest entry level graduate to be the team leader or project manager.
I had to look at their website to figure it out. The two most important criteria for me when considering installing any new Linux service is: (1) Is it a server, (2) Does it provide access to a filesystem and (3) Does it access the window system?
Docker is a type of virtualization system. But rather than duplicating the entire set of kernel services; file systems, displays, IO ports, hardware, it only duplicates the network services through "containers". These are file systems that hook up to the OS and file system through the network layer such that containers can be attached to each other and communicate across networks. It's a sort of distributed network mirroring file system. Wonderful for sys-admins because they can maintain duplicate copies of a standard filesystem across multiple desktop and server systems. But it also makes for perfect rootkitware because it could be pre-installed onto standard Linux distro's with the mirrored copies on some cloud server.
That's because at one time or another they've hit a glass ceiling. You can work on project X at company A. A year later, they decide to start work on project Y and those with seniority are moved onto that project. But they decide to discontinue project X. All the other companies are now only considering people that are on project Y.
Some British employers only want people who had grades A all the way through primary school to university. I remember a company call Data Connection who were like that. Other employers will still look at your undergraduate degree from 30 years ago.
That could be measured by heights of children vs. parents. Assuming they have had children.
Most of Europe is Agrarian where land is dominantly used for agriculture. Countries like France. There was the introduction of a pesticide ban in 2003/2004 - The Rotterdam Convention
The Convention entered into force on 24 February 2004 and became legally binding for its Parties. Perhaps the replacement chemicals were worse than the original ones that were banned.
I've seen some online specifications in the format YY/MM/DD or maybe it's YY/DD/MM, practically impossible to determine for the past 14 years.
There was a company that sold (or still sells) a blob of software that calculated a registration key based on the configuration of the hardware; serial numbers of the CPU(s), motherboards, GPU boards, installation date of the software, time zone. If any of those changed, you would have to apply for a new registry key.
