We'll share/send/impose our superbugs with you; you simply cannot hide behind that Swedish flag...
And I say that with great pathos... (I hope I used that word properly - it is the only one to seem to fit)
Sound pollution is very, very real.
Lots of your "small irritants" create a hugely toxic environment. Documented, proven, already legislated against.
If you view it as a small irritant, you should seriously look at your own existing environment, for long-term sake. It is already probably too loud.
And, don't complain when you get a little older and wish to have some simple quiet, become ill, have small children, or a home, try to read a book, and you cannot even enjoy any peace.
And, why should it even take an act of Congress to keep sociopaths out and quiet in?
I mean, something as nearly universally annoying to the public, and it literally takes an act of Congress. Just like the Do Not Call registry.
Do we need to jump through this hoop every time some sociopathic weasel exploits some loophole or weakness in technology (or other)? Or, do we need some baseline of understanding that we have a basic human right to peace and tranquility?
I know that there is a whole judgment thing (who would appropriately judge such things), but come on, and act of Congress?
Socialize the costs, privatize the profits. Companies balk at buying bandwidth - if they get the government to dictate it a "security" problem, we will all pay for it from taxes.
There appears to be no HW accel. on my ATI 9250 - still 100% CPU. On this very same hardware on previous Fedora, many moons ago, there was HW accel; full screen with little CPU util.. but I was likely running the 32bit version.
This mainframe could be single-clocked through most of its execution and it brought out all of the registers to the front panel - each LED row was potentially 4 different selectable registers; that is how you isolated the problem and repaired the "bit". Pipelined, superscalar, and it had a relatively modern OS (many OS "firsts")l, the famous B5000 stack Architecture of the 1950s,60s. Its daddy had incandescent bulbs for indicators and core memory. You learned bare metal, or you didn't.
Adobe said it would be available only on Android Market, which I understand is apparently not available on many Android devices.
Even though Firefox (fennec) is available as a apk (so far), it will not do me any good unless Flash is available that way as well.
