Radio is very noisy. Why would any advanced civilization think that it would be a great way to communicate over long distances?
Because microwaves near the 21cm band pass through dust clouds that would block visible light and various other frequency bands, so its good for really long distance communication. Hydrogen 21cm detectors are also a good way to measure the large scale structure of the universe. See The Watering Hole.
Android supports RDNSS for IPv6, but not DHCP for IPv6. Basically, there is no need for DHCP in IPv6. There is no need for an IPv6 address to be dynamic. Your carrier has multiple ways to supply one or more global IPv6 addresses to your mobile device, and to renumber the devices under its control at any time. Since your carrier is responsible for routing the IPv6 packets from your mobile device, it's up to your carrier to assign IPv6 addresses. For use on a local network, your device can also use IPv6 stateless auto configuration. Also, none of these options exclude any others: IPv6 assumes devices will have multiple addresses at the same time. Finally, IPv4 and IPv6 are not mutually exclusive. If you are behind a firewall, using addresses like 10.x.y.z or l192.168.x.y, then your device is capable of using IPv4 and IPv6 simultaneously.
On my android 4.1 phone, connected via Verizon, I can see both an IPv4 address and an IPv6 address. On my phone, tap Settings, scroll to the bottom, tap About phone, then tap Status, and you'll see a field of two IP addresses. With wifi turned on, I have a 192.168.x.y address on my home wifi network. If I turn wifi off, I get an address that begins 100.71, presumably assigned by Verizon and globally routable. With or without wifi, I have a second address with 8 fields, much longer, beginning 2600:1000. That's clearly an IPv6 address assigned by Verizon. Whether or not Verizon will route my IPv6 packets is another question.
Exactly. For example, every time Krugman gets involved in a debate about the banking sector, it becomes clear why he got the award. The Honorary Nobel Prize he got was handed to him by the head honchos at the Swedish Central Bank, so it shouldn't come as a surprise when his views are heavily leaned towards a more finance sector friendly Keynesian way of thinking.
So trying to boost his credibility with this "Nobel Prize" will only work on people who don't know what kind of a rigged anti-prize it is.
Absolutely false. The Riksbank gets its authority from the Swedish Parliament.
As you can see in this photo, Krugman is being handed his Nobel by King Carl XVI Gustaf who is a strictly ceremonial head of state. The King may be a customer of the bank, but he isn't a honcho at the bank; Parliament controls it.
However, figurehead Carl XVI Gustaf has no say in who gets the Nobel Prize in Economic Sciences; that is decided by this group of professors. Not the Sveriges Riksbank at all. Yeah, I know, you've got a conspiracy theory to explain why all these professors are puppets of a bank. Bullshit.
I just don't get why people post lies on the internet that are so easily checked on the internet. Makes no sense dude; for a ten second chuckle, you've branded yourself a liar in the Slashdot community. Where's the win in that?
I think the thing to do is have two SIM cards; one for USA and the other for the UK. That's what I did on a trip to Italy, and I'm assuming not too many band differences between Italy and Scotland. With that in mind, hopefully my Moto X experience in Italy will be helpful for someone.
I took a stock Verizon Moto X to Rome, Italy. No unlocking, no rooting, no special side-loaded apps; just a plain vanilla Moto X. I pulled out the Verizon nano SIM and plugged in a T.I.M. (Telecom Italia Mobile or something close to that) nano SIM. It just worked! (Note: you'll need a paper clip or earring stud or something to pop the tiny SIM tray.)
When I boot the phone with the foreign SIM card, it first asks for a 4-digit SIM PIN. This number is printed on one of the cards from T.I.M. Then the phone puts up an annoying message: "Sorry, this SIM card is from an unknown source". Then it goes to the home screen, and all is good. Two small annoyances: you have to enter the 4-digit SIM PIN every time the phone boots (you get 3 tries at the PIN - after that I don't know what happens); and it seems to want a reboot about every 2 or 3 days - the symptom is data seems very slow or gone, but a reboot (with 4-digit SIM PIN) makes it all good again.
In the place along the top notification bar where the phone would (in the USA) display the "4G LTE" logo, in Rome it would often display "H+", presumably indicating some kind of HPSA+ connection. I know nothing about European signaling standards, but presumably H+ is good.
We used voice and maps pretty heavily: for example, speak the command "navigate to the Borghese Gallery," choose walking, and you're on your way. Mostly it could understand my english names for places: the Pantheon, the Vatican Museum, the Trevi Fountain, etc. If I had an Italian street name or piazza name, I'd have to type that in (for example, it never understood the voice command "nearby gelato" or "nearby gelateria."). On the other hand, commands like "find nearby ATM" or "find nearby artist supply store" worked pretty well. YMMV
According to https://developer.apple.com/li... Swift includes several C pointer types.
C Syntax ---- Swift Syntax
void * ------ COpaquePointer
Type * ------ UnsafePointer
Type ** ----- AutoreleasingUnsafePointer
There are several more C pointer types on that page, but you get the flavor. You can take that C baggage into your room, unpack it, and make it all home-like.
... a badly implemented subset of C++
You mean like C++?
Not exactly. I have no particular objections to the implementations of C++ I've encountered.
Nope, it's the design of C++ that makes me want to scream...
It isn't easy being the parent of a six-year-old. However, it's a pretty small price to pay for having somebody around the house who understands computers.
