I've never needed to know the diameter of a coin, and it honestly wouldn't have occurred to me to search for that. There's also no denomination on the coin that I can see, so if I hadn't handled one in the past I probably wouldn't even know what to search for. That said, it seems like most folks in the US plop down a quarter next to something for scale, so I'd assume a similarly sized coin anywhere else.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
Get your stupid ass off of my global communications network. I suggest hiding in the goddamned woods until your prepper jackoff fantasy comes a-knockin'.
So make sure you're the one designing the process. Keep bullshit out of it. I do ITSM-based infrastructure change management. On paper my job is to bust the admins' balls. In reality I ask them what they're trying to do, make sure they write up a rollback plan (even if it is just 'restore from backup'), and make sure the server guys aren't planning to do something that needs the network on the same day that the network team is planning an outage. That generally takes about a half hour of everyone's time once a week at my mid-sized shop. Oh yeah, then I send an email to the people that are going to care if something goes down. This isn't even my full-time job - we don't need someone making work for everyone else because they're bored.
It doesn't need to be a bureaucratic nightmare, it just needs to show what the hell you're doing and that you thought about how and why you're doing it (or undoing it when shit blows up.)
This place reads like a combination of Penthouse Letters, Soldier of Fortune, and Byte magazine.
They learned that the design was sound for the mission they simulated. It seems like a good idea to get one of those under your belt and then STOP DESIGNING.
Well, since this is slashdot we may as well assume that the people who designed the things completely overlooked the obvious.
You're just jealous that no one invites you to the circlejerk.
AMD sucks butt on Linux despite them releasing specs, whereas nVidia is as close to "just works" as is practicable using their binaries. You know, the exact opposite of what you are claiming.
Just like AMD?
Cheese would have either melted or been mashed to bits if the landing was all that bad. It really is just delicious ballistics gelatin.
Or you could buy a new disk the size of everything you're going to connect to this IDE controller for $10 more, use less juice, and be less prone to failure.
I'm not hearing a no.
Nah, no worries. They've developed a petrochemical-derived replacement tamale wrapper that should be on the market in a few months.
Possibly. But they'll be the same plasticizers that are in PET already. Different source of hydrocarbons, same plastic.
Does she pay you to search for "plastic" and related terms and then sing her praises?
