What a great feeling it must be to pay extra for the privilege of fixing their bugs for them. Did they at least give you a discount? (Rhetorical question; I know they didn't.)
Look at those assholes. Ordinary fucking people. I hate 'em.
Well, if he's anything like me, the 'emotion' is amusement and schadenfreude.
Huh? When I was a vegan, I'd have immediately said 'yes' to that question.
On the other hand, one of the primary benefits of being a vegan was that I had to reevaluate my diet and make conscious choices. I suppose if artificial animal products existed, I wouldn't have had that benefit. Nonetheless, I'd rather they did exist. I would hopefully have learned self-control some other way.
Drip brewing doesn't really scale well, since it takes time for the grounds to saturate, and a small amount of grounds will form a thin layer; both of these make the percolation happen too fast. Also, the first cup of water won't be quite hot enough for good coffee, unless you have a very good drip machine. (Most drip machines don't heat the water enough, but it's even worse for small amounts of water.)
A coffee maker intended for 4-6 cups can make a single cup, but it'll be pretty shitty. Use a press, cone, or single-serve drip machine.
It would probably be a service you subscribe to, not a barter economy. Who cares about owning a "nice new battery"? It's a consumable anyway. A guaranteed minimum quality of service is all that i would require, and this is easily enforced.
What do you expect? His handle is 'sexconker'. Whether he's a pedo or simply a horse chestnut insertion fetishist is unclear, but something is clearly awry.
What is this magical phone without delicate glass on the touchscreen? I want one.
what? p-values are in no way restricted to the normal distribution, although a lot of statistical theory does involve the normal distribution.
That's all true, but on the other hand, Americans give a shit about cars whereas we really don't care about education. If put to direct vote, I'm fairly sure that the majority would vote to get rid of education completely and just replace it with daycare, if it would save a couple of bucks.
exactly what you mean by deduplication is kind of vague, but whatever you decide on, it could probably be done in a hundred lines of perl (using CPAN libraries of course).
except that it's more reasonable to assume that the process of losing bitcoins is a Poisson process of rate n*c, where n is the number of bitcoins currently mined and not-yet-lost, and c is the per-coin rate of loss. in this case, the number of not-lost coins will go to zero eventually.
this isn't exactly correct, since once the idiots lose their coins, the remaining ones, held by more cautious people, will be lost less often; that is, the "constant" c will actually be decreasing.
nonetheless, as long as the loss events are independent of one another and there are finitely many bitcoins, they will eventually all be lost as long as the rate doesn't go to exactly 0, though the timescale for this would be absurd. this can be shown in some generality.
anyway, if necessary the bitcoins can be subdivided to regrow the space, or even wrapped into another protocol.
They're using some kind of shitty statistical classifier, probably programmed by people who don't know what they're doing. Porn sites were probably the majority of sites which used your placeholder at some point, etc.
The thing with blockers like this is that there isn't really a whole lot of market pressure to make them good. The peons being blocked generally don't have a say, and the management doesn't really give a shit about over-blocking them either. Also, as a distant second, it's not a sexy enough field to draw the good talent; in fact, it's a repugnant field.
It's obviously referring to randomly chosen problem instances, which are then approximately-solved by both the D-wave device and a state-of-the-art classical algorithm. Don't be a fool.
And why should D-wave be involved in the study? Is Intel involved in every benchmark test of x86 hardware? That would be very suspicious indeed.
walmart takes arbitrary 'returns' as long as it's an item they stock. maybe staples does the same?
