I see you repeating this message from a earlier thread. Looking at your arguments makes me wonder who is paying you to repeat this message over and over again?
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
Based on a beam triggered start and finish you could use a still camera with a timestamp and a clock in sight. At the same time place a tag on all cars on the same height and distant from the front of the car. Combine a visual tag with a RFID tag in one and you have double signalling of both start and finish. Comparing those two can be done in milliseconds when connected to a laptop and only uses a networked connection between the two laptops.
Well, glad that I am not the only one who made that switch. I tried KDE too but the performance hit was to big so I ended up with Xubuntu and I like it.
When you program some evolutionary theory in your digital world and your digital world is developing some evolutionary lifeform that is news?
I find it quite astonishing that it is that easy to intercept GSM calls. And that phonemakers disable this warning is even more astonishing!
Looking at current possibilities with virtualisation this the best advise so far I have seen in this thread. Personally I would add a big fileserver or NAS to it and a Gbit network to make usable for more than math and science only.
KEEP (Keeping Emulation Environments Portable) will develop an Emulation Access Platform to enable accurate rendering of both static and dynamic digital objects: text, sound, and image files; multimedia documents, websites, databases, videogames etc. It's a project supported by the EU and several National Archives across Europe.

do they autonomous control them too? No doubt that those cars can navigate their way to China the technology exists and this is a nice proof of concept. But human behavior especially on the road is not very rational. You need a lot of AI to interpret such behavior in a way to avoid all kind of trouble and sounds like a real quest to me.
because those who know to get hold of a working illegal copy of Windows 7 will soon find another crack to avoid WAT. But I can tell that whenever my paid Windows 7 is downgraded by a false positive I will remove it from my computer for ever. And because it is running in a virtual machine it is just "rm win7.vmdk".
Maybe because, as an autistic, my morality is rather pragmatic- John Paul II's Theology of the Body makes sense to me precisely *because* it fits in with evolution and survival of the species. Respect for human life between conception and natural death also fits in strongly with the liberal neurodiversity side of things; a mutation that might be seen as negative in one light (like sickle cell anemia and the lessened ability to process and use oxygen) can be positive in another light (immunity to malaria); and at first glance we human beings just don't have the intelligence to know the difference.
If, as theistic Intelligent Designers claim, God created evolution and it's his method of engineering, then reducing the genetic diversity of the species is indeed taking the power of life and death, the central power of evolution, out of the hands of God and giving it to man. And based on our inability to know long term good from evil with mutations that are normal to the human species, yes, that becomes a moral argument.
