We have no nukes that can 'fly' so far
If a nuke would work at all, we need a new targeting and ignition system for the nuke (besides a missile to get it there).

How did you come to the retarded idea that I implied anything of what you say here?
I was wondering if his doctor simply prescribed him antibiotics when he felt 'nocked down' and the later infection / pneumonia or what ever it was, is caused by disabling his immune system that way.
But thanx for the info about viruses, several people claimed that now, but I'm still uncertain which virus would cause a pneumonia.
I nevertheless doubt a virus causes an inflammation, but well I seek for more truth
As long as you don't convert into my fan, all is fine, narcc!
Yeah, that makes a good example, I was more thinking about direct rotating or masking in bytes read from a stream or something.
As soon as you can pack stuff into a packed record Pascal is easy. But keep in mind, with some restrictions you can write similar structs in C.
I know people who went back to school at 45 and found jobs as software developers before even graduating! Do not tell me this as the 2002 recession ended.
there are people who actually believe trading in and looking at child porn isn't a problem, that that is victimless, it's just pictures and video
I don't think I've seen anyone argue that the distribution of child porn isn't a problem.
I have seen people argue that the First Amendment permits it, regardless of whether it's problematic or not.
Wow buy a new one if the old one works just fine and is better (no cell phone on the desktop)?
True as a gamer an old system is pretty useless unless you run older games from that era in which it came from.
XP is still insanely popular and I will bet you money in 2020 when Windows 7 goes EOL XP will still have marketshare of active computer users. Small but still significant to be counted. It works and users like it because it is familiar to them.
I still see no reason to leave Windows 7. I just wonder what it will break now? Windows 8.1 BSOD on both an ATI and NVidia cards in youtube which I find very strange. No problem at all in Windows 7. DirectX 12 adds more complexity of things it can fuck up.
Oh and my Asus board probably won't have drivers as it is in their financial interests for me to throw it all away and buy another one right? I had a room mate who stayed on XP for a long long time as he thought Windows 7 was a buggy POS. It always BSOD because Dell wanted him to throw it away and buy a new one rather than release a driver that went thru QA?
Just my gripe.
I find that very hard to believe as driver support for XP has gone away since 2011 except for a few business oriented systems and now even they do not have Xp drivers.
This must have been used.
Wii has open hardware access to the primitives where developers writell their own direct access according to a past story here. PS is the same. Console makers hate opengl as it encourages portability to other consoles
They use neither. Directx is on the Xbox so the pc gets a lousy Xbox port. Opengl has not been used in games for a long time now.
Exception is Wow for the mac
Wow right back in 2001 again.
John Carmack conceded directx 9 is superior. I can't think of a single game today that uses opengl. Why is that?
You must live in alternative universe as developers prefer to develop for consoles first with direct x then back port it to pc if piracy concerns are not to bad.
Pascal, especially the versions running on the UCSD P-Systems, was once the largest install base of computer software.
Your analysis is wrong. No one really knows why C displaced Pascal, in fact I would say, it was not C but C++.
My judgement is that the high costs of Eiffel and Ada compilers/envirnomnets helped C++ to pave the way.
Around that time (1990 - 1995) we also had a rise of OO and CASE and modeling methods (OMT, Booch etc. and later UML). I assume the focus of modeling tools on SmallTalk and C++ and very soon Java (1997) made it even more troublesome for Pascal.
Back stage the Pascal companies where canibalizing themselves. The winner, the company buying or destroying the competition, simply did not last and got sold, bought out or whatever
The same with C#, the language only exists because MS made a mistake in their EEE policy regarding Java. The arguable benefits of one language over the other where established an half or a full decade later. (None had generics or lambdas when developed
C never had a hughe standard library, it still has not till to our days. so this argument makes no sense at all. Even C++ still lacks standard threading and standard GUI libraries
