Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
I got the joke. It was a lame attempt to one-up you.
The car ended up stuck in this long loop of "too slow, too slow, more gas more gas more more mooooOOOOH CRAP TOO MUCH TOO MUCH OFF OFF OFF WAY Ooooh that's better, much better this is nice, I'm right on, wait, no no no wait too slow, too slow more gas more more MOOOOAAAAHHHH TOO FAST TOO FAST..." which could sometimes last for miles, unchecked.
I had that happened to me when the fuel regulator for my car decided to go out. Line pressure leveled out once I got up to 65MPH. Slower than that it was all over the place. Drove straight to the mechanic to get it fixed.
I think in this case it might well be gravity. We still haven't sufficiently solved the three body problem to the point where we can predict and hence establish stable orbits with perfection. And the sun is a mighty powerful third body where that hot marble is rolling.
But like most huge subjects, nearly all of it is really, really boring and only a tiny few bits are really interesting.
And you may rest assured that those interesting bits are the ones your prof will take while his students get to waste countless hours sieving through the boring stuff. Well, if astronomy is anything like archaeology, that is.
Without this web apps can't really exist on mobile.
And that concerns me on a desktop for what reason exactly?
It's just like Windows 8 all over. All hail the all mighty and all important mobile market, the old desktop farts can as well eat shit, who gives a rat's ass 'bout them? We got them anyway.
Now. Let's wait a few versions.
