And, then it says, you just put hundreds of thousands of these things under highways, and start reaping a non-trivial amount of electricity
And cause a non-trivial increase in rolling resistance and reduction in mileage of the victim vehicles. That energy had to come from somewhere, and collecting it has side-effects.
TANSTAAFL: The first law of thermodynamics as well as economics.
The trees, on the other hand, may appreciate some energy-absorbing sway damping - especially in a storm. (As long as it doesn't interfere with pumping the water up the trunk to the leaves, of course.)
Oops, got the history horribly mixed up. Try this:
Written in 1976, under licensing granting source use in classes, suppressed with the release of System 7 in 1979, which didn't include this license term, (after which Unix source code was deleted from classes and the two-volume set became an underground copier-room classic), general distribution of "ancient source" (including System 6) authorized by SCO and the book reprinted with the 1977 version of the commentary (plus a forward by Ritchie) in 1996.
What was the title of those text books?
Lions' Commentary on UNIX 6th Edition, with Source Code, a.k.a. "The Lions Book".
Written in 1976, under licensing granting source use in classes, suppressed with the release of System 7, which didn't include this license term, (after which Unix source code was deleted from classes and the two-volume set became an underground copier-room classic), general distribution of "ancient source" (including System 6) authorized by SCO in 1976, reprinted in 1977 with updated commentary and again with added historical commentary in 1996.

To which version of System V are you referring? The original one, SVR2, SVR3, or SVR4 and later?
The entire project (or at least from the start through the initial deployment of SVR4.)
That's a really good point.
Google Maps has a feature where, when your battery gets low, it will ask if you want to dim the screen except when coming up to turns. I'd love the option to enable that behavior full time. Just going back to the home screen is a decent second choice, I suppose.
"We wanted to focus on the browsers that have made serious security improvements in the last year," Brian Gorenc, manager of Vulnerability Research at HPE said.
Was this modded +5 because the Berniacs missed the sarcasm or did everyone get it and find the news link I cited informative?
Do new satellites drop into the existing network but with improved accuracy? Or will you need an updated device to take advantage of it?
The reason that every major university maintains a department of mathematics is that it's cheaper than institutionalizing all those people.
