Yep, this is a great book!

... if much of the world's tungsten ore was laced with silicon nitride "contaminants". Alexandria all over again.
Of course! For teh win!
In addition to the crazy-short development deadline, my understanding is that the Pac-Man cart was released on a 4Kb capacity cart, whereas the later Ms. Pac-Man was on a 8Kb cart. You can do more cleaver things if your code can be bigger, so you can get a more accurate and detailed port.
Ha! I first read your post as starting out "via Git economies,
They chose a bad, confusing name: btcd. It is only nmemonic for the thing for which they want to provide an alternative. Some people will wonder "Is it Bitcoin or not?"
Why not choose "Gocoin" or something more distinct?
I'd really like to have a programming language that is easy to learn, and localized or localizable. Preferably cross-platform, or browser-based, so she can show her work at school (Windows) as well as work on in at home (Debian Linux).
By the way, she speaks Dutch and Danish, so preferably one of those languages (but if it's localizable I can translate it myself).

"Man I thought I was a night owl."
Hairy, ya got me worried, man. I see way too many posts of yours made at times like 4AM. I hope you get enough sleep. If something bad happened to you, where'd I get my quotidian skewering of all that is lame, clueless, devious, egotistical, and/or self-serving?

Yeah, there's about one hundred vehicles in Ann Arbor right now running a multi-manufacturer pilot test of the car-to-car communications. Many of the cars have warning systems that use the info passed between cars to alert driver of a danger. This is useful whether or not we end up with self-driving cars. So, yes, both manufacturers the DOTs around the world want to hang onto the spectrum. It could help save lives, improve traffic flow and road utilization, and give manufacturers a set of new features they can sell to improve their profits. How horrible!
We can debate if this is the best use of spectrum. I think it is a pretty good use, and it will need to be protected and used in a coordinated way to make these vehicle applications feasible and effective. Maybe you'd rather have faster Facebook updates or see better video on demand on your smartphone or something? Would you think that's a lot more important than avoiding a massive pile up in a white-out snowstorm or fog? Manufacturers won't announce dates or specific models yet, but it could be fairly close. But it won't happen if poor spectrum management makes it technically infeasible.
The new spectrum allocation for unlicensed use around 5.9 GHz would conflict with previously-planned allocation for connected vehicle (aka "V2V") technology. The extent of potential interference between these differing uses is not yet understood. I hope this WiFi plan does not blow it for the auto and traffic safety industries.
I tried QTWeb on your recommendation, but I found that on the Linux systems I tried, it crashes seemingly at random. This is the current version as of a few months ago.
I'm not sure about how solid it is on Windows 7, I only tried it a little on Windows.
Thanks. I will have to try it, but it might take some convincing of the missus that I'm not poisoning it.
