In L.A., with two kids at UC? No.
They're busy herding spherical cows... And applying for the "perfectly spherical astronaut" jobs.
Back in the early to mid-90's, I admined a 486/33 (no bloody SX/DX suffix). It ran SCO ODT 2.0, and functioned as a departmental development server, supporting about 20 devs.
It had an Adaptec 1740 EISA SCSI-2 adapter, and an early Diamond S3(?) video card.
I *LOVED* that box, and wish I had tried to purchase it after they removed the classified media and decommissioned it. The thing was a frickin' tank, with a steel enclosure.
Let me guess... WUSTL? I remember that we wrote PL/1 using the PL/C subset in '80 and '81. Go WUSTL Bears!!!
This is madness!!!
No... THIS.... IS..... MARS!!!!!!!
And this is my Illudium Pu-36 Explosive Space Modulator!
What are these ads of which you speak? NoScript and AdBlockPlus, and I haven't seen an ad on Slashdot in YEARS.... except for Slashvertisements, of course.
Aren't Nvidia's drivers identical for both Win and Linux? I thought the binary blob was the core of the Windows driver.
Nursing is just dispensing pills and cleaning patients?
Dude, you have no FUCKING idea of what you are talking about. I was married to a nurse for 25 years. It's WAY more than handing out pills and cleaning patients... hell, a monkey could do that.
Nurses are involved in creating patient care plans, providing ADVANCED technical care, and much much more...
Actually, "lede" is correct.
Win 7 was qualitatively better than XP in every respect and always has been.
Couple of exceptions:
1. Tweaking network adapter settings. XP: right click on icon in tray. Win7: dig about four levels deep into Network Settings.
2. Full Screen Console Mode. Not possible with WDDM.
No, but it tends to have a lot of knotty problems...
That's not how I RTFA'ed. I saw it as
- * Egypt had (undocumented) knowledge of a few right triangles
- * Mespotamia had documented knowledge of many right triangles, -- including large ones, which would indicate knowledge of the theorem
- * India has the first documented statement of the theorem
- * China has the first documented proof of the theorem
Well, back to the old drawing board!
Also the slot machine wheels spinning and locking in. Also the handle pull.
The one requirement that seemed off to me was "3-6 drive slots".
In what universe does a laptop need more than 2 drives? (I'm assuming SSD and magnetic for the two drives). The need for optical can be handled by USB if needed.
