They are looking for people who will do anything their superiors tell them to do. This particular bit is about finding people who don't do stuff the authorities declare illegal. This is all about obedience, not about "not doing illegal stuff".
Downloading a popular TV show episode over Bittorrent will saturate your link. It is a good measure of your connection speed.
As soon as religion makes a claim that can be disproved, thus stepping into the domain of facts and knowledge, science simply has to make a statement about such claim.
The definition of God has been greatly constrained and hollowed throughout history, all thanks to scientific progress. Domain of religion has been shrinking precisely because science makes statements about certain religious dogmas, ones that were presented as factual knowledge, showing them to be factually incorrect and/or logically inconsistent.
Performance increases have been evolutionary for quite some time now, no major news expected this time.
What is really important is the power consumption and battery life. Each new process shrink roughly halves the power while keeping the performance. Will be interesting to see if this trend holds.
Blocks were composed of [ and ] symbols on the text terminal.
It booted from a 8" floppy on a Soviet clone of PDP-11.
Patent sales like this one should be forbidden. Nortel was a practicing entity that used patents defensively as a Mutually Assured Destruction weapon. Selling this weapon to a non-practicing entity who is happy to use patents offensively with no fear of consequences would be akin to selling Ukrainian nuclear weapons to Al-Qaeda back in 1994.
When people become hungry and desperate, they organize and fight. This happened throughout the history. If anything, organization is much easier today than when unions first formed. Yes, it is not going to be pretty. But the end result will be more equality, including sharing the remaining work.
Many things in science are settled beyond any reasonable doubt as false simply because they contradict obvious observed facts. Sorry, Earth is not flat and was not created literally 6000 years ago in literally 6 days.
Old cellphones get passed down to me, you insensitive clod!
For many years I was using second hand phones. 2 year old devices out of contract are good enough for me.
That, an I only use unlocked GSM.
Ok, here is my question.
I don't own a gun right now. If I get one, will the chance of death or injury (not just gun related) increase or decrease for me and my family?
Is this a good enough question?
I don't really care about being robbed. I don't own anything that can be easily taken from me and leave me ruined.
The only real currency in this world is power.
The more power you have, the more you can take away from others ("borrow"). The US dollar is only backed by power of the US government to coerce people and other nations, nothing else.
Bitcoin has no such backing. It is worthless.
I live in Arizona, you insensitive clod.
TFA does not mention any computer files.
She provided TheDC with a photo showing the stack of file folders in a bag marked âoeevidence/property.â
The best environment is one that already has the stuff for your application, so that you just cobble together calls to code written by somebody else. Perl + CPAN was the winning combination for many years. These days it seems to be Python+numpy/scipy/scikits.
How about not doing illegal things in the first place?
A lot of motivation for insiders to disclose the "sensitive" information would go away.
