I still think in terms of double-sided Commodore 64 5-1/4" floppies. At about 320KB per disk, that'd be 1,388,888 disks.
Considering our planet only has another billion years before its turned into a crispy planet like Venus (killing all life in the process) due to our sun exhausting its hydrogen supply, it seems even less likely that intelligent life which can spread beyond its planet would have time to evolve.
This article tries to compare fracking water use to other uses (eg. golf courses) but fails to account for fracking water being taken out of the system - it's not recycled, it's disposed of. With lakes drying up or disappearing in California and other countries fighting over fresh water, how can the fracking industry be so wasteful?
Did you run into any out-of-sync issues between video and audio? (eg. someone's lips move noticeably before you hear the audio) In the past I had problems, and that was my main reason for not involving a general purpose computer in the initial encoding process this time around.
I've been using a DVD Player/Recorder machine to digitize old home movies from VHS-C (using a converter tape in a VHS player) to DVD. Then I rip the DVD into a VIDEO_TS folder using RipIt for Mac and also have it create a
My personal point of view is that high school history was full of dates and names and difficult for me to memorize. I did not find it interesting, even though on paper my teacher was a published author and one might assume was doing a fine job teaching. Fast forward to my adult life and I have found many sources of interesting historical accounts and am more interested in history now than I ever was. The interplay of different events on different parts of the world is fascinating.
I was just watching a tornado video on youtube and noticed one of the computer screens in the communication centre had a BSOD: http://youtu.be/sl_CM6wlry0?t=...
Pack behaviour - that was my thought as well. I have seen video of a pack of lions exacting revenge on an elephant. The elephant got so exhausted with all those lions on it that it fell over and the writing was on the wall after that. What a slow, horrible way to go. An article recently suggested that T-Rexes may have hunted in packs which makes it plausible that an animal like the Dreadnoughtus could actually be taken down.
Also worth considering what vulnerabilities being that large could pose, such as getting stuck in a ravine or falling victim to some other terrain hazard making it easy for predators to wait for it to weaken before striking.
In the cases where coding experience alone makes someone better than someone who has education and coding experience, that would lead me to suspect a high level of innate coding talent in the person without formal education in the field. Certainly could happen. If you could take the same person and measure their talent with and without formal education, what would you expect to find?
Question should be rephrased: Does learning to code outweigh learning to code _better_?
It also ignores the other things you learn while getting your degree, and learning to cope with pressure which isn't present when you're learning to code whenever you feel like it.
Just a guess, but probably would require too many changes to their build infrastructure and associated tooling to be worth the while, since version numbers aren't surfaced that much to the average user anyway.
Have you tried creating a new profile and comparing speed? There have been a number of Firefox issues caused by certain profile data. How about disabling all addons and trying again? Do both of those things and see how that compares, then narrow down the options.
Just installed the latest Firefox and did a bit of random surfing. First impression: noticeably faster than before, probably even on par with Chrome.

This recent quote from President Obama (re: illegal torture) comes to mind: "And my hope is that this report reminds us once again that the character of our country has to be measured in part not by what we do when things are easy but what we do when things are hard."
