Must be showing my age, but that's exactly what I thought! Played with Z80, Z280 and HD64180 for years, so I immediately connected this processor to the 8-bit world.
I guess this must mean that Canadian music business is booming! I mean, all those nasty downloaders would otherwise be buying music and movies, right? The billions of losses story?
Show the correlation.
So, as a foreign visitor, I walk into a RS shop to get a SD card. I pay for the goods, and that's all.
What gave RS or its debtors the right to turn my personal information into merchandise?
These puppies are way out there, running on neclear power. No-one to bug them, nothing to break them.
That was my thought as well. I paid for a better environment, and I'm not getting any. So I want my money back.
Better yet, they may well be female virgins, but nowhere does it say they are human. Even in *this* life, muslims are said to have preference for goatse.cx
Don't kid yourself. The personnel with knowledge to maintain the internals of XP are all axed years ago. There's only a few H1B workers applying band-aids if really necessary.
When I worked at IBM, there was Sametime, any and all employee worldwide could be reached 24/7 already. How would Skype help?
Hmm. Wonder if the 'whatis' robot is still there..
Hitachi made that sort-of 16-bit processor. It was the HD64180 which was featured in a project from Steve Ciarcia in BYTE magazine (SB-180). Hitachi later sold the rights back to Zilog who produced it as the Z180.
"...or fail to lock down cables on a carb"
I'm pretty sure that cars still equipped with carbs are exempt from any copyright violation issues..
More to the point, I can imagine that anyone modifying firmware in a self-driving car might be in trouble with just about everyone around them.
Properly stored, 30 years or so. Getting a system and a tapedrive from 30 years ago to read it is a different story. I still have 8mm tape drives from the early 90's and they still work. Getting them hooked up to a modern SCSI bus is a bit of a challenge though.
I wrote tape diagnostics tools in the 90's (still do today). The main tool was a DOS program ( EXPERT7 ) which was in use by many customers. If you started the program with a '/?' command line option, it provided help on all command line options. If you started it with '/??', it would play a tune and list the names of everyone involved as beta testers. No-one ever complained.
Sen Feinstein also presented plans to deal with the Edward Snowden situation. In a stunning move, she came up with legislation that would make Edward's mother un-pregnant. Feinstein: "This is really simple. By forbidding Mrs Snowden to be pregnant, Edward does not exist, therefor the whole data leak issue is a thing of the past".
Except Christians express their disgust of KKK and actively combat it. Muslims on the other hand are entirely quiet about the atrocities isis and boko haram commit, which to me means they agree with that radical interpretation of islam. I have lost all trust in muslims being part of Western society.
More on subject, I don't think hundreds of buzzing drones overhead will be socially accepted. In my country guns are forbidden, but I'm pretty sure in the USA many will pull their rifle if drone keep them awake, fly over their property and mess up the quiet areas.
Ah, yes. It's the fault of everybody but the muslims. Back in the victim role again. Meanwhile in reality, muslims are killing muslims like there is no tomorrow. The murders are getting more atrocious by the minute. But I'm sure islam has nothing to do with that.
I do think quran teaches muslims to hate jews, and in fact everybody who rejects the islam fairytale. I do think that there are far more muslims than publicly known who despise Western civilization. And I do think that the peaceful muslim majority is irrelevant (look that up for yourself). The proof is in the pudding. How else do you explain that a simple cartoon of a bearded man with a bomb sparked muslim outrage all over the world, causing massive protests, riots and even killings. At the same time, the horrendous beheadings, mass abuse of children brainwashed to become martyrs in the name of islam spark.... nothing. No peaceful muslims on the street protesting. No despise, no rejection, nothing. I'm not talking about muslims needing to apologize to Western societies. I am talking about muslims standing up in rage against those extremists who rape their 'faith', should islam qualify as a religion.
So-called moderate muslims continue to push for special rights, for ever larger mosques to be built, for segregation of man and women, for pestering gays, all while leeching from the Western social system they despise so much. Why do these 'moderate' muslims insist of inviting imams known to preach outright hatred for social events? Why do even more 'moderate' muslims want to come to such events to be poisoned with extreme islam? Islam brings death, poverty and hate wherever it goes. Islam is not a religion, islam is an ideology determined to reach world domination.
I do agree with you on one point. Religion in general is a bad way of not taking responsibility for your own life. All religions are equal in that, so islam is as much poison for the people as any other religion.
