What was the rationale for making the IPV6 address space so huge in the first place? Seems like simply going to 40 or 48 bits would have been sufficient for decades if not longer.
Let the "Uranus" wisecracks commence.
Wow. I haven't watched ABC since V either. It's pretty much a wasteland, not that V was Shakespeare or anything, but it was pleasant enough.
First off, I have both CF and incandescent fixtures in the bathroom (wife likes more light for makeup). If I wake up in the middle of the night to pee, I actually _prefer_ the CF warmup time so it's not so harsh going in there.
BUT: I've actually found myself leaving certain CF lights on continuously whereas I wouldn't have with incandescents, because the warmup time is such an inconvenience. No net savings there!
I believe the issue here is not that it can't be done (T-Mobile offers WiFi calling on certain phones), it's that it can't be done well. The transition between WiFi and Cellular is often far too bumpy for a low-latency, bi-directional audio stream to sustain, so the call will drop. This would result in a service that would get more complaints than praise from most phone companies' point of view. So they don't offer it.
That and probably also patents. It's always patents with this kind of shit.
Ha. I was an RIT student in the 90's too. It was a total sausage fest. I went back for a visit in 2005 because I was in the area and noticed a lot more women there. I don't know what the per-major balance was, but it was at least better overall.
Amiga OS to BeOS to OSX to Windows7 (you insensitive clod)!
Punctuated by lots of attempts to go Linux, usually ending in a chmod/.conf-editing rage induced reformat.
Ugh. I remember taking an 8088 class after knowing 6502/68000 well.
Multiplexed address/data bus, segmented addressing, little-endian, and backwards operands.
I was like, "Is there anything left for them to be contrary about?!! How did this get to be the dominating platform?!"
I blame Intel for single-handedly turning subsequent generations of programmers off from assembly language.
Zero. If you count Google Talk then maybe 20, on average, usually to the wife.
I buy gas in Washington whenever I'm across the river because I want to pump it myself.
...and a cold.
I am too and I haven't been to any in over 2 years. Last one was some shitty regional vendor expo. My employer has been really tight with travel budget lately while at the same time prodding me to do "professional development" activities. I'd love to finish out my Crestron cert. but that's several days of classes in another city (mostly for stuff I've already figured out on my own in the meantime). Oh well.
Is InfoComm worth it anymore?
Perhaps their coveted cinnamon roll recipe?
...used to keep bread bags closed. Twist Ties forever!
