Well its cool and all that some company that wants to specialize in fabricating one off parts can use their machines to make a functioning gun, but this is hardly news worthy. The price of the machine that did it could probably buy an entire tractor trailer full of AK-47s.
The RIAA is actually the music industries final form. The only way for them to remain relevant is to become a law firm that litigates non stop.
Were they not able to sell or trade used books before? I know in college they change books like every year to squeeze more money out of you, but I figured in south africa they might assume the people cant quite afford it and use the same book year after year.
Oops forgot, we are also constantly tested for weaknesses against social engineering lol.
I work for a medium sized financial institution and the level of security is off the charts to the point where you can be fired from walking away from your workstation without first locking it. No computer that is connected or ever has been or will be connected to our internal network is allowed on the internet or to have a flash drive / CD put into it except by approved IT workers (the ports and drives are disabled too).
Sure myst looked great, but modern games have much better graphics. Sure Myst had intriguing puzzles, but puzzle games are dime a dozen in the bargain bin. Sure it had a good story, but lots of games have had good stories. The properties that made it good at the time did not age well and now days the audience for such a game would be minuscule. Perhaps the gaming demographic has changed too. The games that have aged well are the games that allow a sense of advancement or that allow a lot of creativity. Pokemon, Diablo II, minecraft (for sake of argument I am saying it was born old).
The school I went to in particular, the CS courses had more math than they had actual computer courses. I think they were just padding the cirriculum to make their degree program and math looked like the most viable option. As an 18 year old it was enough to make me change majors, I can do math but its not my favorite pass time, so a degree that looked an awful lot like a math degree with a minor in computers was enough to scare me away. I regret not looking at other schools.
exactly, and if I had points id mod it up but I don't so I'll just reply.
if $5 could feed ME for a month I might actually have some money to donate
So now every tech support call in the world is monitored by the indian government? If I defame their leaders while on the phone with Dell, will their be consequences?
Even if it has no effect on telomeres, it could still keep the body functioning better into old age. I would rather have 70 good years before I die than 40 good, 20 that are so so, and 10 that suck.
If you had to relive the whole debacle, what would you do differently the second time around.
I've got one of those hybrid laptops with both intel and Nvidia gpus in it. When the settings are screwed up and it forgets to switch to the Nvidia card, even simple games like league of legends run jerky and more modern stuff becomes completely unplayable unless you completely neuter the settings and resolution.
They might even be able to turn up their graphics in WoW now
Wrong. If everyone went 90mph it would be far safer than having one guy going 65 and another going 90 on the same road. The point of speed limits is to get everyone going as close as possible to the same speed, then their speed relative to each other is miniscule causing interactions to happen more slowly and less frequenty.
