She was the backup.
Probably to stop people nicking them out of the dumpster and trading them in again, or selling them to someone who doesn't know the provenance, as much as anything.
They always lie down before it rains... are the cows hooked in to NOAA? Or, is that where AccuWeather gets that "probability of precipitation" number?
Just to add to what you're saying, thought experiments can be perfectly valid in the physical sciences. Newton had a great one determining that differently weighted things falling will fall at the same speed (all other things being equal.)
If you assume that a light cannon ball will fall slower than a heavy one when you drop them, and then you tie them together, it stands that they must fall at a speed in the middle of what they will each fall at. But tying them together makes them effectively one object, so it'll fall faster.
Given these both cannot be true, everything must fall at the same speed.
This is a nice example (to me) of a though experiment that can provide useful results.
Why would someone sue google? Google doesn't owe you free speech. They can put up whatever results they way. Only your government owes you free speech, not any corporation that happens to be somewhat American.
By them choosing to not show something, they aren't violating your constitution. They can't, they're not the US government.
No it's not.
Like gopher users.
You can stick with gopher, but the rest of the world has moved on.
Thanks, just ordered one to replace my aging WRT54GL.
$500 / hr to the contractor with all of the equipment, $12 / hr to the illegal immigrant they put through the classes.
You're right, it does pay well!
Similar in NZ, $1 and $2, and the smallest coin is 10c. However, we have something like 80% of point of sales transactions being electronic (off the top of my head), so it doesn't matter too much. This article is a bit of history really
It's quite possible. I have a choice of power companies (and am planning to change some time soon.)
Here, generation, and retailing are all split up (not sure how lines maintenance works, I think that might be regional, but done though your retailer.)
This means a) I can pick my retailer, and b) they can compete, along with the generation companies.
(I'm not really contributing much here, just adding a little bit of possibly interesting information.)
This guy probably is the tech but is wanting to spend more time with his family or something.
Probably settled down too fast and can't get a better job now. My advice: don't settle down and quit using your wife and children as excuses for your career failures because they'll grow to hate you for it.
You just need to schedule some of your days as offset days. Work from 4pm to midnight some days so that you can get some work done when others aren't around. Some days require you being around people, some days command you be alone.
Or you can just work 16hour days like the rest of us and wear it with a badge of honor.
If you are your own boss and do this, you can earn enough money to take random weeks off from work with little to no notice so that you can travel the world, and do some recruiting while doing it so that you can write the expenses off on the company.
I agree about the mercury in CFLs but how do you think most solar cells are made?
and the alternative to the solar panels on the roof are nuclear reactors, coal power plants, or hydroelectric dams. You tell me which is going to impact the environment the most when you look at the total cost of operation from afar like that.
The battery in the Pebble lasts a week.
