But I always use 315 for my chunk size because that's my grandma's birthday!
Well, they sold you a MODEM.
Of course it's going to come with a software CD. You bought a MODEM! (yes, I know, you could be talking about cable/DSL/FIOS)
I'll just leave this here:
Not at 30k feet, but it exists.
Also: Not sure why you would want one baloon at the end of one heavy 30,000 foot cable. Maybe a smaller balloon dividing the cable into smaller unsupported spans would help? But then there's all the wind resistance, I dunno, that would be a tough one to design for all weather possibilities.
A certain species of whiner that brings up SJWs at every opportunity is actually an irritating SJW itself.
"No offense intended, but it would never occur to me to look for the best minds in any generation in an undergraduate English department anywhere. I would certainly try the physics department or the music department first -- and after that biochemistry. Everybody knows that the dumbest people in any American university are in the education department, and English after that."
I don't know about Steven Seagal, but I would love to see Jackie Chan in a "chick flick."
That man is hilarious, I feel like it would turn into a cult classic.
Mine does the same.
And fun fact: Mr. Coffee makes some nice, cheap K-cup compatible machines (work with the refillable cups) that are also as small as my wife's old one cup drip coffee maker that somehow always made a mess and had more to clean out after each cup then the Mr. Coffee with reusable cup (we got a nice all stainless steel reusable cup for durability).
Says someone who's apparently never applied pesticides.
Went and bought a 2.0 machine not knowing there was a difference.
Ended up returning it the next day... also bought a Mr. Coffee K-cup machine.
Way to fail, Keurig.
I'm currently bidding out a pretty hefty workstation (128GB RAM, RAID 5 disk array, highly parallel workload).
From what I'm seeing, AMD is pretty competitive on price/performance. Our work load is integer heavy, and I can get a dual 16-core 2.8ghz AMD machine for $2500 cheaper than a dual 10 core 3.2ghz Intel machine. Even if you assume the AMD is 20-30% slower per core, it stacks up quite nicely.
The MBs are cheaper, the processors are cheaper, and the registered DDR3 DIMMs are waaaaay cheaper than the DDR4 RDIMMs that Haswells seem to love.
This is the most sadly insightful thing I've ever read on Slashdot.
Correlation is not causation?
What do you think came first, the high crime rate, or the restrictive gun laws?
Agreed. What's more, modern energy-efficient fridges use smaller compressors and run them longer than older ones.
I just replaced my old brick with an LG refrigerator (a big one, too) with their linear compressor. Because it's essentially a continuously variable displacement compressor, there's no big startup inrush current like the older style compressors. Instead, it just starts gently until it gets up to full speed. And the compressor doesn't even need to run a full power, it cycles around 50% most of the time.
Hah! In the movie they shaped it like a regular cartridge, with a shoulder on the casing and everything... except that the "motor" is on the back of the cartridge, meaning the entire thing is actually a huge bullet.
I hope this wasn't something that was supposed to be able to be fired from a regular rifle in the movie!
We don't have time to go to Starbucks now.
