It took 70 years for voyager to reach the heliopause
Um, actually the Voyager probes were launched in the late 70s, so it's been less than 40 years.
A return trip would certainly take a while longer due to slowing down, sample gathering, and then managing to accelerate back home. But this wouldn't be the first time that projects have begun that are longer than a typical human lifespan.
This doesn't have anything to do with a kernel fork; indeed, in the Windows world you're using the same kernel and drivers regardless of workstation, server, etc.
This has more to do with the support systems in place, eg, using standard init scripts, leaving logs in text format, etc.
I saw the announcement yesterday afternoon, and found it listed already in my available games (since I had previously purchased it for Windows, under WINE).
It works wonderfully under Linux: it's faster, uses less resources, and doesn't crash nearly as often as it did under WINE.
I'm extremely happy, as this was one of the few reasons I still have a WINE install in place.
I used to prefer spicier, but age has not been kind and now I can't handle more than a half-dozen jalepeno slices without paying for it later.
That said, I'd prefer flavor over heat.
Long time or not, this is a good thing for Microsoft to do, as well as for the community in general.
Unfortunately, however, it's under a non-commercial license, so any FreeDOS developers still need to avoid contact with it to avoid any IP complaints.
I did what you suggested, spent about 10 minutes looking around.
Yes, there are buildings, and yes there are cars. But, I saw hardly any cars (mainly buses, and only a handful of those), and I also didn't see any parking lots. So, either I completely missed it, or you're seeing something I'm not.
Just for kicks, I looked up a list of the world's poorest countries, and picked #1, Congo. While I don't see as many industrial/high-rise buildings in the cities (definitely many more individual homes) I see more cars and other signs of human travel and habitation.
is asinine. It's not difficult to put a noscript tag with a reasonable explanation for clients. All production sites should have graceful fall-back for accessibility and other client issues anyway.
Unfortunately, children will explore and learn things you don't want them to regardless how much we will (or want to) shelter them.
That said, the solution my wife and I have is we tell them certain things are appropriate, and others are not. When they're older, they can view them, but for now it's not appropriate.
We have two Popcorn C-300s, and the media I don't want the kids to watch are in a separate directory called "Not Appropriate". That way, you don't have to go nuts with security and lockdowns, and your kids know what's there. Knowing the media is there but shouldn't be viewed also teaches them self-restraint.
Additionally, it may be possible for a 3rd party to intercept SmartScreen’s communications to Microsoft and thus learn about every single application downloaded and installed by a target."

Why are people allowed to create a public safety problem by opting out of "required" vaccines?
Instead of using any existing language (written or spoken), you use mathematics and pictograms. Essentially the same as how they did the drawing on Voyager.
Just start with a basic number system, individual atoms, then a description of radiation, time periods, etc. None of those should change within a few million years.
If you want to give a start and end date, just use a star chart based on the current location of earth with of a few obvious bodies for reference and project it forward.
