I agree. They are using hardware that has been in operation since the '40s. It would cost them money to make upgrades. I am not surprised by this behavior.
"Famed developer David Perry has posted an image on his blog of an employee playing the PC-only MMO World of Warcraft on the Apple iPad." It's not PC-only. That's where I stopped reading.
"The payload fared worse, reportedly being smashed into a 'thousand pieces.'" and they all went skipping about, and that was the beginning of fairies.
... Australian fairies. O_o
Stanford Hospital nearly killed me: I received cyberknife surgery from them. A few months later, I was in severe pain, not understanding what was wrong. Over the phone, they prescribed me decadron, without addressing the great pain I was in. That medicine, coupled with severe pain, almost killed me. I have lost all respect for them.
Microsoft will piss and moan. It's no surprise really...
I agree ~ the writers might have more work to do, bringing it together into a cohesive story (or series of stories), but I'm all for it!
There's no promise that it will be GOOD. They will probably make a film adaptation ANYWAY
... riding on the coat strings of The Hobbit. (and those nifty blu-ray releases...)
First there was Peter Jackson vs New Line Cinema. Then there was HarperCollins Publishers Ltd. and JRR Tolkien Estate vs New Line Cinema. No doubt there will be a few more lawsuits before they start producing the film adaptation of Tolkien's "The Silmarillion" (in at least two parts, of course).
but there are consequences... http://xkcd.com/292/
I'm not saying that at all. The climate changes in cycles, with warmer periods and cooler periods. Please, spare me the drama.
Some look at ice core samples. Others count sunspots. This suggests that we will have "lower than average global temperatures". Call me a heretic, but I think that we get better data from counting sun spots.
You know, it really seems relevant, because it's parallel computing. It's interesting how you describe it as "combining thread pools with queues of closures". Kudos to you. Unfortunately, my score was (1) and your score was (2) so now this part of the thread is buried so deep down that nobody will ever read it.
The Playstation 3 is a great machine -- I'm just not thrilled that they do not yet have backward compatibility with Playstation 2 games. Honestly, I want to play Shadow of the Colossus on the Playstation 3 with the new emulation technology http://kotaku.com/5304117/sony-patents-method-to-emulate-ps2-on-ps3 that will probably improve the straining frame rates in the game. If they were really serious about the new machine, they would adopt something similar to Grand Central Dispatch http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mac_OS_X_v10.6#Grand_Central_Dispatch then they would get SO much more support from developers.
Make that into an iPhone app and I'll buy it. ^^
Just keep the dog away from my "backups".
