Clearly, this boy is more worth loving than you have the strength to.
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).
Trolls have achieved immortality already before, meet Herostratus.
I applaud the tech companies for actually trying to disclose more.
I would have applauded too, had they tried to disclose before their complicity had become public. Post facto, it reeks too strongly of public relations damage control.
The battles the US military is engaged in involve hearts and minds, and drones are very bad from that perspective.
What you say is obviously true, but this shallow truth is shrouding the much more profound one that if you want to win "hearts and minds" you don't wage war in the first place.
At it again? Calm down and take your pills, Steve.
... it is perfectly acceptable in polite society, politics and academia these days to demonize all Israelis without considering individuals
It's a pity you had to spoil your informative, insightful and interesting post with this stupid sweeping generalisation (which, ironically, accuses of making a stupid, sweeping generalisation).
Thanks for your post anyway.
It makes me really appreciate the Founders of the US. There were so many opportunities to turn this country into another Western Hemisphere dictatorship shithole and they didn't.
The irony being that the USA turned a lot of other countries into Western Hemisphere dictatorship shitholes. For example, Cuba, before Castro and his cronies 'liberated' it.

2) Untrue: a 44kHz *sampling rate* has a 44/2=22kHz Nyquist cutoff. Frequencies f>22kHz Nyquist limit "wrap around" to f-22kHz difference frequencies.
No matter how much you repeat this, it's not true. Look it up in any textbook.
Also, your allegations about the DFT allowing a perfectly sharp cutoff aren't realistic. A perfectly sharp cutoff implies an infinitely steep transition between passband and stopband, and this can only be achieved with an infinite number of points in the DFT.
a 25kHz tone sampled at 44kHz results in a spurious, highly audible (25-44/2)=3kHz aliasing signal
As another poster already said, no, it would result in a 19 kHz tone.
And this tone would not be audible, let alone highly audible, because the A/D conversion filter blocks frequency content above half the sample rate very effectively. (Unless you're using broken converters.)
Because "communism" is what people commonly associate with "enemy" in much of the Western world.
This particular association seems far more prevalent in the USA than anywhere else.
Actually, "Panzer" is the German word for "tank"; in fact, it is the best translation in this context.
You are advocating not questioning the cultural habits of your time and society, instead you seem to think it's alright for people to follow them blindly.
Besides, Lovecraft's merits are less literary than due to his wild imagination and his ability to let it flow.
At this point, I am fairly certain nothing will ever make Apple blush.
Your post and your sig do not rhyme, my friend.
