Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
7. When diagnosing any computer output by reading an endless stream of slowly scrolling text, hackers never need to reference a line that has already gone off the screen.
I thought that was more of the whole "all teen and tween asian girls are alt" trope.
The larger the frontal surface area of the vessel, the harder it is to control. Wave motion and tidal forces become more pronounced as the vessel gets wider, making it harder to hold position.
This "barge" isn't a standard cargo hauler, though. You can see a photo of it at the link below. It was definitely custom-built for this purpose.
Sure they do. AMD has had hybrid graphics for years, and both Catalyst and the open-source driver have had support for quite some time. I've used laptops that had AMD's hybrid setup and it was far simpler to set up.
It is possible that Optimus has improved a bit in the past year. A large part of my woes stemmed from my particular card being relatively new and hence requiring a bunch of bleeding edge packages for support, and trying to get bleeding edge stuff to play nicely together is often painful.
I'm sticking with AMD for my Linux boxes for the time being, and NVidia for my gaming PC. I've had more troubles with AMD in Windows than in Linux the past few years.
Impressive. I know we have a tradition of not reading the article before commenting, but you didn't even read the first sentence of the summary:
"If 95% of great programmers aren't in the U.S. [...]"
The whole point is how to get the best talent regardless of where they live. The number of time zones in the mainland US is irrelevant.
FYI, I'm currently working on a project with two other teams: one on the west coast and one in London. They are 8 time zones apart.....
Don't forget to airgap your TV and only use remote controls that you built yourself from open-source blueprints. Everybody knows the remote manufacturers secretly capture your button presses.
If you ever want to see just how bad nvidia is in Linux, get a laptop that has their Optimus abortion. My laptop at work regrettably has that.
With stock Intel drivers, display works but there's no acceleration, so performance is shit.
With stock nvidia or nouveau drivers, performance is great but can't use external monitors (because they are tied to the Intel chip)
Getting both working at once required a kernel built from source, a backported package from the testing build, a package from a PPA from a child distro, three dependencies built from source because of conflicts between the distro packages and the bleeding edge kernel I had to use, and the nightmare that is bumblebee. I don't dare run an update on this system because fuck knows what will break.
Meanwhile, my last three laptops at home have been AMD-based. Install Catalyst, reboot, everything is beautiful. It is remarkable how far things have swung. I remember AMD being verboten back when I first got into linux because of how godawful the support was.
Not true. If you miss a connecting flight, they can send your baggage on the original flight ahead to your destination and send you on a later flight. Similarly, sometimes you will make a narrow connection and your bags won't, and they'll go on a later flight. Bags can travel separately from a passenger even when the airline doesn't lose them. Happens all the time.
Well, sort of. If the cost was included in tuition, then it would be presumably covered by scholarships (example: when I went through uni, there was a state-sponsored scholarship program that covered full tuition for four years, but didn't cover books).
Technically, that isn't theft. You've entered a private venue without permission (a ticket), so you'd be trespassing, but no theft has taken place.
The repricing tool sent incorrect prices to Amazon for those products, according to the company's statements. Setting a floor doesn't exactly help if a bug with the tool means it doesn't respect it.
It is an issue of scale. When you have sellers constantly entering and leaving a market as their stock is depleted, prices are not fixed and are adjusted with the market. You can do it just fine if you only have a few listings, but when you scale up to warehouse-level inventories you need software to manage it.
Hint: Amazon adjusts the prices of their own listings on a regular basis based on demand and the prices of FBA and MF sellers, and they don't do it manually.
News at 11: Repricing tools are used to match prices as well as undercut them.
