Actually, they are all pointed towards China. Your geopolitics is about 50 yrs outdated.
It's not wattage , it's the lumens that matter. I have worked with an IR-laser of a measly 3W that will burn through your tissue because of the way it is focused.
Ambient light is typically diffused. If you replaced that tablet with the actual light bulb that you kept staring at, I assure you, you will not fall asleep.
What part of "annual revenue" did you not understand?
someone needs to give this guy a primer on cancer and its 'cures'.
NVM. Slasdot failing the comment system it is.
Are you replying to my post with a different subject line or is this slashdot failing the comment system?
My experience trying to contribute in open-source projects is 'patch or you don't exist'. I suggest a simple UI change to cover a particular scenario where-in the UI is really unusable. The response I get :
Me: The tabs become invisible without bordering if the UI theme is black
Core Developer (CD) : I like it this way, we chose this after deliberation.
Me: But this OS is the dominant OS and it's not uncommon to have a dark theme on Windows...
CD: Choose a light theme. Wontfix.
Me: I guess that's the end of it for me then. I'll move to another program.
CD: You could always change the options and compile it. Submit a patch and it may get approved.
Me: If I knew how to do that, would I be talking to you? Would I have not simple compiled the damn thing myself and used it...never to talk about it again?
Thanks, just gave it a try. I see that the CCS is Comodo Dragon without the new UI. Good thing...I guess I will use this now.
I must have missed the memo where Firefox was already properly multi-core ready, with add-ons and jetpack actually growing thus making this browser relevant again.
I hate Chrome's evil, but I hate suckiness more than I hate evil. So Chrome it is for me.
I admit I made a mistake. The reason why this is so is because the abbr. 'GMT' is so often used to depict UK Time / BST. And that has DST adjustments. Nonetheless, I stand corrected about GMT and tip my hat to you for the new knowledge you gave me.
I have never seen a good logical reason as to why the whole world can't be on a single time zone. I mean, airlines and airplanes already operate on UTC (Universal Time Co-ordinated, which is just GMT but without the DST adjustments)
Will it really be that jarring if sunrise occurs at 6.PM wherever you are? It will get rid of this entire timezone mess altogether.
Wasn't that the idea behind Visual Basic, the users could write their own little functional pieces of code. This is why VBS macros exist in Microsoft Office and Windows.
You need to understand that the Nobel Peace prize is a very different thing, compared to the Nobel prizes for sciences and economics.
The Nobel prize is not given for scientific achievement or for being the first to do anything. It is given for accomplishments that influence the world and society in a substantial way (in the opinion of the Nobel committee).
The message being sent here is that LEDs were cool, but there was no significant impact of LEDs on the world until the blue LED came along, allowed production of white light and thereby the use of LEDs in lighting - substantially increasing the per capita energy efficiency in the entire world .
You may dispute whether blue LEDs really made a difference - but the 'original work, first to do it' is not (and never was) a reason for the Nobel prize awards.
Chromium is irrelevant to the average user without Windows builds. Chromium themselves ask people to download Google Chrome on their webpage. So, meh.
