Even holy Yoda was tempted, and he should have known better...
You may make the case, but you won't win it when you argue in front of people whose lives and family became "collateral damage" because of the leader's "honest mistake".
How many WMD's were in Iraq?
In actual newly designed buildings, the architect cost is 20-25% (source: Fred Brooks). Not talking about McMansions here that are built like refrigerators on the assembly line. And plenty of large buildings (either residential, commercial or industrial) run over money and time budget.
Sure, Linux (and BSD) allows you to maintain (or to pay somebody to maintain) old kernels on old hardware (without allowing a third party to interfere). It does not mean that whatever you need will fall from the sky, on the back of a unicorn.
Free as in freedom, not as in beer.
The restaurant owner now has more income, so he maybe buys a nicer car.
The customer now spends less on food, so now he buys some nicer shoes.
You forgot the third clause, "and the former cook is now starving".
The money does not disappear, but if they move away from the cook, what is the going to live on? "Find something else?" you say - then the money has been moved around a bit more, but did the general happiness increase?
No, the signals on the headers are TTL level, not 12V needed for RS-232. You need a TTL to Serial adapter or one of the FTDI CDC USB-to-TTL adapter such as this: https://www.sparkfun.com/products/9873
That is false. They pay all the taxes, including social security tax, without any expectation they will receive any of the benefits if they don't became permanent residents or citizens.
Before you make that claim, are you going to drink your own medicine and present us with some evidence? Have you conducted long-term studies that show that prayer is useless?
That's easy. Two football teams pray to win. Only one does. Obviously prayer had nothing to do with the result.
The team who won prayed harder! Duh'
Providence is on the side of the big battalions.
Just wait until the second...
Hey, my Honda Civic was built in Ontario, you insensitive clod! I can switch the odometer to km/h if I want to.
Mod the parent up!
He's just being silly - the guy's name is actually Khalid not Khalel.
Why would those giant platforms not become US territory and be subject to the same laws as the mainland?
I installed Windows 7 on my three year-old Thinkpad and it worked fine, until I had to install drivers for some microcontroller development boards that I'm playing with. The problem was that they used drivers that ran on top of libusb-win32 and as that is a free software project, it does not have signed drivers. With Windows XP through Vista, when the device manager complained that you were installing unsigned drivers, you could push the 'trust me, I'm an engineer' button. That button no longer works for Windows 7 64 bit. You can no longer install whatever you want on your own hardware using a legit copy of the operating system. The brave new future is here, on your PC.
I spent two days trying to get it to work, then gave up and went back to XP/32 bit.
Oh, no! He also bought some private information from Facebook.
