Decent rant, but he contradicts his own argument about how the USAF only likes sleek, fast air-to-air planes when he rambles on about how they loved the ugly, slow, air-to-ground F-117.
Plenty of Iraq pilots got shot down by missiles far beyond the 100miles range without even ever noticing the F-15 or F-16 that shot the missiles.
The only operational US missile to have sort of range was the Phoenix, which was carried by neither the F-15 nor the F-16.
It was launched exactly twice in its service history on the F-14 with no hits scored.
2 factors come to mind:
Sports oriented vehicles often sacrifice Cd to obtain downforce, since top speed is not advertised as heavily or reached as easily in many modern designs.
Short body length vehicles have less space to adopt Cd optimized forms than longer vehicles. The larger Model S has a claimed 0.24 Cd.
The liberal Democrats of 2000 are not the liberal Democrats of 1940. Why didn't you call them neoliberals, you moron?
The fact that the core missions of Democrats and Republicans have varied wildly over the existence of both parties just shows how limiting and misleading the whole R/D
When Slashdot first gave me the option of disabling ads I had the same reaction...
"This site has ads?"
Did you see the AdNauseam story?
Google has never provided binaries on their Chromium site and that has always seemed like a very deliberate choice to deter would be users.
To run Chromium (on Windows) you must to dig through third party sites which may or may not have the latest version of Chromium available and may or may not bundle adware garbage installers.
Chrome binary download links, in contrast, are featured prominently on many sites. It is heavily advertised.
Finally get back some of the vertical space lost when every laptop and desktop downgraded to "HD".
It's time to retire this complaint because the fact is that screen resolutions have started to increase again
Your old 1200 pixel tall non-16:9 display isn't anything to brag about anymore. 1440p is quite cheap nowadays and 2160p is gaining traction.
It's among the worst nationalistic hogwash misconceptions ever, easily on par with North Korea rambling about its moon base.
Pretending that the EU is a singular nation in the way that the US or North Korea are is itself "hogwash".
And runs the comparison over several thousand files (or even hundreds of thousands, or millions)
Ah yes... the joys of Internet Art collecting!
True, but I have never seen anyone argue that "the main advantage of Firefox has always been the plugin system".
That's a halfhearted moisture application. Have her put them in her mouth instead so you get the full luck application.
The US might adopt this tech.
The kinds of fraud that have Washington Consensus stamps of approval don't involve physical bills and will not be impacted.
The main advantage of Firefox has always been the add-on system, and these aren't getting ported to ARM. They're all x86. They're even having problem convincing add-on makers to recompile them for x64 version of the browser which is why it has remained a non-starter so far. ARM recompiling is basically "not going to happen" land, which means that Firefox on phones is just another browser that has no advantages over most of the other ones.
