What's wrong with Frodo? Granted, I only play H.E.R.O. on it, but it works well.
Paddle controller games are pretty much un-emulatable unless somebody has come up with a Atari->USB interface that can handle paddle controllers and actually be compatible with emulators.
I use Dropbox's free service but they've never made a dime from me because they have no middle tier. I'd happily pay $5/mo for 35-50GB, but $10 for 100GB is too much for too much.
This! I don't mind an ad to pay for the video, but the ad should never be longer (or even more than half as long) as the video. Also if the video itself is an advertisement, like a movie trailer, then that is just egregious.
Also, overlays are evil anywhere at any time.
Hmmm... I agree with you about segmentation, but think that adding an octet or two to IP4 would be vastly preferable to the unreadable, unmemorizable, mess that is IP6 that makes us slaves to domain name servers. So make it a non-lethal shot, please!
+1, sir, would that I could!
I remember learning x86 assembly after knowing 6502, 68000, and 68HC11 and wondering what it was the Intel engineers were smoking when they came up with not just the addressing scheme, but little-endian (don't get me started), and destination, source! More importantly, WHY that became the most popular architecture. It's like everything was upside-down and backwards of what I learned.
Though from what I've seen, ARM is little-endian and dest,src too, probably to appease people coming over from Intel.
I disagree. I have a couple of the new Ikea LEDARE bulbs and absolutely love them compared to every single CF I've ever tried. The color and brightness are perfect for the reading lamps I'm using them in. I bought the first one with great doubts, but was so impressed I bought the second one (which is responsible for my poll answer).
I'd upvote you if I could. Calculus (and to a lesser extent, C) was what got me booted out of CS. I was dumbfounded at the time because I was a programming and electronics fiend my whole teenagerhood and figured I could take on the major, no-sweat. After failing Calc-2 no less than 5 times, I should have gotten the hint. Fortunately, I had a friend who was a major in Computer Engineering Technology -- basically embedded controls design and programming. Hardware design and programming the hardware in (mostly) assembly. And best of all, NO full-on Calc! There was a special sequence of applied math courses specifically for majors in the *ET family. I did well there. If only I had swallowed my pride earlier and admitted that there were things I just sucked at.
I learned later in life that my affinity for programming came from an aptitude for the synthesis of logic and _language_, not symbolism or numbers. My brain's just wired for one set of abstractions and not another. So be it.
Computer technology is a commonplace enough realm now for there to be a whole array of majors catering to all aptitudes and interests. Using generic CS as a metric has lost its accuracy. In fact, I think it's a major best reserved for purists who will eventually seek a more specific graduate degree or those who are knowingly undecided and will change to something more specific midway.
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.
