The average programmer can't code more than 100 lines of code without using google. Imagine how hard it would be to recreate the google without google.
I tried with ImageMagick convert and it is not as bad as the firefox resize or the eye of gnome and gimp. One can still see the Dalai Lama after "convert -resize 50%" .
Although most of the Brazilians would agree with the action, the decision here in Brazil for the payback was made by politicians. And It is no more a decision up to the politicians. There is a law in our constitution that establishes the rule of reciprocity. At least we are also reciprocal to other countries that make severe requirements like Spain.
Actually, I am a tall, latin, handsome, hairy, geek and i am confused. Are or are not women more attracted to me? From my experience there is no such thing as "X attracts women more than Y".
I really don't think that IT workers are not satisfied because they are underrated. I think IT employees that got enginerering/CS degrees were expecting more exciting and innovative research and development kind of jobs and not to do some scripting using excel or some plain web data-base oriented systems. They are not underrated, they are overeducated.
I agree. Why do not stop with the nuclear weapons that opposed to the LHC are meant to explode and can really destroy the earth?
Now quantum mechanics and so most of modern electronics uses it
Errr...therefore it is still useless.
I guess if one proves that the program is formally proof correct there is no need to verify the numbers.
This could be used to predict which projects are essential to open source and free software.
A couple of weeks back the Wall Street Journal reported on the first organ grown in vivo from stem cells — a tooth in the mouth of a mouse. Reader cdrpsab spotted the news on the MedGadget blog; the research had been reported earlier in the PNAS. From the WSJ: "The researchers at the Tokyo University of Science created a set of cells that contained genetic instructions to build a tooth, and then implanted this 'tooth germ' into the mouse's empty tooth socket. The tooth grew out of the socket and through the gums, as a natural tooth would. Once the engineered tooth matured, after 11 weeks, it had a similar shape, hardness and response to pain or stress as a natural tooth, and worked equally well for chewing. The researchers suggested that using similar techniques in humans could restore function to patients with organ failure."
That is some topic about women and relationship that some slashdoters can talk with experience.
If you think the NASA toys would last long imagine how long a Mir toy would last.
Just use image analysis to find if there is any solutions. Something very simple like Gonzalez et al.
Last 500 years the human being tastes has played such strong role that if people liked this tree it's an positive random adaptation to its environment.
Ian Lamont writes "The Electronic Frontier Foundation and the National Security Archive are praising President Obama's executive orders to make the federal government more open. Yesterday, Obama issued two memos and one executive order instructing government agencies to err on the side of making information public and not to look for reasons to legally withhold it. The moves are expected to make it easier for people to file Freedom of Information Act requests, and should also boost the amount of information that agencies place on their websites. The general counsel for the National Security Archive (an NGO that publishes declassified documents obtained through the Freedom of Information Act) even predicts that agencies will use blogs to share information. Obama's directives reverse a 2001 memo from former US Attorney General John Ashcroft instructing federal agencies to generally withhold information from citizens filing FOIA requests."
