This same thing was reported here after the last big update release. Guess I'll wait, for my own entertainment, and see if it's reported again after the next Vista update package.
That's nothing compared to 14 cores.
I just wonder how many people that 'matter' will pay any attention to a study like this. It seems like a little psuedo-psychology mixed in with a bias to me. Playing devil's advocate...
YES. This would aid in the advancement of those who are relatively gifted with the intellectual prowess to further society while weeding out those who contribute nothing.
Give the general public access to information they -think- they understand and watch cars start to blow up at red lights. I am a bit of a shadetree mechanic and have never ran across a late-model vehicle I couldn't diagnose and fix. If I can do it, surely these fancy "SAE Certified" mechanics can, right? Oh no, you don't suggest... that... maybe, they're not all they're, um... cracked up to be? Maybe... they want a little midget to jump out of the dash and tell them exactly what to do? This isn't about DRM, FFS, DMCA, PCM's, ECM's or any of the other fancy little acronyms these folks would like to blame their lack of skills on. It's good ol' laziness and lack of education. The auto repair industry has been a magnet for unqualified, less-than-desireable humans for decades. They're not trying to make the leap from ignorant to ignorant victim. Oh, the irony.
Would anyone care to use chaos theory to predict the outcome of the many cases involving the RIAA? All these random judgements pretty much excludes logic as a reasonable tool in predicting the outcome.
You mean to tell me that little dude with the big nose and bowl haircut on the Mac commercial mislead me... and poor Megan chose the wrong guy? Oh no.
...yawns, recalls mental image of Debian on his PC at home and how it doesn't seem to want to EVER utilize hardware acceleration with his circa 2002 graphics card, thinks of upgrading his home PC from 2k to XP, returns to work on Vista
I looked up my state's statute and interestingly, it states refusal to identify one's self as suspicious and therefore adequate reason to detain. Wow, talk about a self-protecting clause. (b) Among the circumstances which may be considered in determining whether alarm is warranted is the fact that the person takes flight upon the appearance of a law enforcement officer, *******refuses to identify himself******, or manifestly endeavors to conceal himself or any object. Unless flight by the person or other circumstances make it impracticable, a law enforcement officer shall, prior to any arrest for an offense under this Code section, afford the person an opportunity to dispel any alarm or immediate concern which would otherwise be warranted by requesting the person to identify himself and explain his presence and conduct. No person shall be convicted of an offense under this Code section if the law enforcement officer failed to comply with the foregoing procedure or if it appears at trial that the explanation given by the person was true and would have dispelled the alarm or immediate concern.
Bingo! Give that man a cheeseburger... make it a quarter pounder. TIME THE FRIGGIN' SESSIONS. END OF ISSUE.
shutting down about half the services so my PIII can burn or convert a DVD without injecting glitches in the video everytime my DNS updater polls, or antivirus updates, or peerguardian blocks an IP... Run services shutdown script - convert and/or burn - reboot to get everything I shut down started again.
Surf on over to datalossdb.org and sub to the RSS feed. Something like this happens everyday, multiple times per day. The bad part is most of the time it's not hackers, it's employees that dump SSN's, DOB's, etc into the garbage or post them to the net. It's horrific. At least when hacker does it, it was done deliberately by someone with half a brain. Most of the time, it's clueless employees scattering our personal information about the grounds like it's fertilizer.
... and replaced it with the Super-Minimalistic Department of Super Redundancy and Checks and Balances See-Saw Redundancy Department.
What shall I tell thee?
