In response to one anecdote, you post a few more? That's not data. If you want to get smart about it, get smart about it. Show me the evidence.
4.2 BEYOND CLASS (A1)
Most of the security enhancements envisioned for systems that will provide features and assurance in addition to that already provided by class (Al) systems are beyond current technology.
Ah, lovely. Government language at its most... statuesque. That's an incredibly awkward way to say, "Dude! We can't do it!"
If only I had a mod point, I'd be modding that as "funny". That's the most completely hilariously wrong code.
Second, being opposed to hostile takeover is a bad thing. I will put it simply, if you owned some stock of eBay, why would you want to discourage somebody offering you a price that is higher than it is trading for today?
It is possible you are not familiar with turn-and-burn operations. A company I worked for once was acquired in a hostile takeover. Everyone was fired, most of the products were scrapped, the buildings and equipment went... all that was left was a quick profit for the takeover company and a few bits of software that could never be updated to remarket.
You are horribly ignorant or deluded if you are arguing that hostile takeovers are a good thing.
And if your local water supply really is limited, and is being exhausted through over-use?
Then the prices would be higher, instead of being effectively fixed-rate. Also, the supplies would be reduced to the primary consumers of water, such as agriculture and golf courses, not the public households that are barely using raindrops by comparison.
Worrying about how much a toilet flushes is utterly ludicrous. That's not at all significant. It's not where the water is going. It's irrelevant.
Do you need more synonyms to process this?
...slashdot is having a real hard time posting either "news for nerds" or "news that is news". Go ahead and bring the beta online, guys, I'm ready to quit this dusty old place, it's become irrelevant.
No. Slashdot hasn't been a tech site for years. These days, it's mostly irrelevant rewarmed posts that everyone saw somewhere else two days ago.
So, help me out here. The roof gets hot, so it expands, thereby exposing much more surface to the sunlight. How is this considered a good thing?
That's why I always use ROT-13 twice. It completely eliminates the risk of that form of decryption.
Nah, I spent more than my share of money on CRTs back in the day, but those days are long gone. A 24" display is still a very wide beast. A 30" sounds like a lot of fun but, then where are my speakers going to fit?
Yeh, 1920x1200 is chump change. I spent over $2,000 for my 1920x1600 monitor a decade or so back but, it eventually blew a capacitor, and at current display prices I was willing to accept a drop in resolution. It's nice to see that display quality is moving forward again, rather than backwards, although 24" is enough of a desk-eating behemoth that I'm doubtful about increasing the size.
Nonsense. C is a more elegant weapon for a more civilized age. It's a shame that mass-produced coders have to rely on blasters.
It does not do this on any Facebook page I've seen. I don't know what your browser or Facebook settings might be, of course.
Surely it would be more effective to recycle coffee grounds for the purpose. They're already fairly sterile and must be available in huge quantities. Or has Starbucks already found a secondary market?
