Excepting when it comes off the gulf, or from Canada. Or when it becomes suddenly severe. But yes, typically it does come from the west.
it depends what you call passed. 50%, 65%, 80% (here, that's the min undergrad, honours, grad grade to "pass"). Passing means you know enough to do that material, not that you understand it well enough to apply it without effort while learning the next level, so if you stopped there you could be considered to know the material.
Loosing (karma) is Fun.
I started with arduino, and I had no microcontroller experience. The community, examples from the absolute ground up, and vendor (sparkfun, adafruit, etc) support is excellent. It all makes for a really enjoyable experience. Digikey and mouser get you parts fast. Ebay and random asian websites get you parts slow but cheap. If you want graphics (eg. TV, or monitor) though, best go with the pi. A pi costs less than an arduino graphics shield. Ethernet is doable at least.
There is also an arduino style IDE for it. http://energia.nu/
goodreader (ios) can cut margins. Its not automatic, but it is very quick and it remembers. I can comfortably read papers on my ipod, although scrolling (with helpful jump buttons) is necessary.
not only that, but it isn't something that you keep using, so even if civilization continues, CFC's probably won't (at high levels). The consequences of high atmospheric CFC's are enough to push them out of use. It'll be like high powered omnidirectional TV and radio signals. Those stopped too, yet we continue.
It's not the fall that hurts, it is the sudden stop at the end.
Humour aside, north pole GPS is important for all those great-circle plane routes that go over the north.
The opposite is more likely, them keeping nokia afloat so that there is still a maker of microsoft phones.
Now, this, this is an example of trolling. Slightly absurd, somewhat believable statement which derails the thread.
LEDs will still have a pretty broad spectral response so you'd have overlap, and need quite a bit of gain. Try one of the taos colour sensing chips, those do RGB+all with programmable gain and digital output, it'll make the project pretty simple and much more repeatable. you can also do one clear NIR phototransistor with selectable filters for colours. That'd be manageable. For my project, I am using, currently, a clear phototransistor and illuminating the target with a specific LED colour. I think someone has done something pretty similar (but reflection rather than transmission) on instructables too, but I can't dig it up.
TD bank in canada: 5-8 letters, no symbols. Sure you have to answer a few (random 3 of 5) quiz-of-your-life-history questions after, but really. http://www.tdcanadatrust.com/products-services/banking/electronic-banking/faq-idplus.jsp Passwords must: - be 5 to 8 characters in length - not contain spaces or special characters (e.g. #, &, @)
wouldn't that be 0.0002c? (extra zero) https://www.google.ca/search?hl=en&q=72.42048km+per+second+%2Fc
