Didn't quite sign on early back in the days, but yeah, beta sucks.
I keep going back to LMMono10 or Monaco. My reasons for preferring them over the others are the usual distinction between similar-looking letters like o, O, 0, i and so on. I use Monaco for the terminals because I prefer the slashed zero and the general look of Monaco. I use LMMono10 for gvim because it has distinctive italic version that looks great with syntax highlighting. Check it out!
Saying that there's one solution that's clearly superior to others show a profound lack of understanding. The MSP430 LaunchPad you speak of may cost only $4.30, but there is a price --- very small amount of RAM (512 bytes) for the Valueline.
While the Android phones are good platform if you need all the fancy hardware and touch screen, they are lousy if you have to deploy more than one or two, price-wise. On the other hand, if you need some of the features that are already available on Android (or, STM32, for example) for much lower price, it would make little sense to add those features (Ethernet or wifi, for example) to Arduino unless you have legitimate reasons.
It all depends on what your target applications, man.
Ours has 160 hours of vacation time for new hires, up to 240 hours per year after a few years. PTO is separate from vacation time. Sabbatical (twenty business days) every four years. And we're still productive.
The US is going to come and kill our babies too (among other propaganda, no doubt).
Yep. I had in my mind that he's doing this as part of a de-inventory process where the machines will then be sent off somewhere for disposal and the backup is just to cover cases where data might be needed later. You're right though that there's no recovery from this process. If he wants to re-use the machine then no, this is not the way to go. (But if he wants to re-use the machine then why bother with wiping the drive several times? It's practically impossible to recover data from, e.g., 'dd
look into degaussing the hard drives with a dedicated unit. You can buy them anywhere from $2000 and up. They're usually good for hard drives and tapes as well and will erase everything including the factory servo tracks. This works regardless of the condition of the drive (bad controllers, no problem). It's good solution if you want accountability for audits, for example.
and remove all past references to all editorial staffs working for those newspapers as well. This would actually be in full spirit of compliance with the court order too, as Google could be fined for each reference to articles written and copyrighted by the papers and the staffs working for them.
since I thought "flare" was another marketing buzzword, used to organize classes of multicore server offerings. "24 cores!" I thought
Agreed. Black Bear Pass in Telluride will kill you just as easily if you're inexperienced. Paper map or GPS matters not.
If you're a Jeeper, you will
We usually carry 5 extra gallons of gas when going into Death Valley. In calculating how much gas you need to cover your trip, you also need to factor in the lower tire pressure you're going to be running (if you're going to go over rocky terrains and washboard roads) --- that takes more gas than normal.
I use GPS and paper maps (Delorme) when I go in to Death Valley. GPS is not the problem. Uninformed, inexperienced, and unprepared drivers are the problem. Death Valley is unforgiving if you make too many mistakes.
I like the new redesign. I just wish that you would leave my font and size preferences alone. I set my display DPI to get the best looking font shapes for my main task, which is programming. At this DPI (100, by the way), the slashdot physical font size is small and I have to compensate by setting the browser base font size to 16 or bigger. This apparently doesn't work any longer.
I have two 1680x1050 monitors in portrait mode. Works great. Lets me see long blocks of code nicely.
