You have 31.5 inches that'll be practically as much vertical space as a 30 inch 16:10 monitor and 2160 vertical pixels to work with, but it's unusable... fine by me, pass it this way
And don't forget the advanced adaptive screening rate through combinatorial probabilistics with both parallell and serial execution methods. You can also implement multiple selection criteria at once, subselecting some passengers to even more intensive screening methods. Though for expediency I'd recommend the d20.system instead.
My TV box has HDMI out, my video camera has HDMI out, my surround receiver has HDMI in/out for pass-through, in fact the only places I can find DisplayPort is on graphics cards and screens mostly intended as monitors, not TVs. HDMI version 2.0 with 4K/UltraHD @ 60Hz support should be out any day now (it was scheduled for first half of 2013, apparently a little late) and unless they completely break backwards compatibility I think that's what everything will use. So unless you really want 4K right now(tm) even though content is extremely rare except stills I'd wait a few more months.
When you put generators down 5-6000 feet in deep fast ocean currents, which run virtually at constant speed year round, the amount of power available down there is staggering. Obviously it only works near coastline regions, but that is where the large populations tend to be, though not all coasts have deep water currents.
Superconducting long distance transmission lines are improving in capability, so maybe distance is not so much a problem in the future.
It is not technically difficult or polluting. We already put complex anchors and devices at those depths for oil drilling.
No need for radioactive stuff, no cooling, no dead birds, no pulsing noise to humans, no polution.
It takes damn good engineering, but that is what we are damn good at.
Unless they're below 50 yards or so, they're not at risk from the shotgun pellets this law allows.
How about you just stop being such a coward? Seriously.
I am not afraid of terrorists.
I do not fear a terrorist in a plane.
I do not fear a terrorist in a car.
I do not fear him, near or far!
For fucks sake, driving to the airport is the most dangerous part of any trip. The risk of terrorism is statistically insignificant. Can we please stop looking for every opportunity to throw away freedoms in pursuit of security that's not even relevant!
Oh, oh I know the answer to this one. What the private companies are (or rather aren't) offering is the best anyone can do under normal, fair market conditions. So if the government can do it, it's because the government is awarding it indirect subsidies and siphoning off costs to be paid with taxpayer money in some unamerican commie conspiracy to destroy private enterprise and replace it with a protectionist government monopoly. Honestly, for some it's so deeply rooted in them that if the government appears to be doing anything at all better than private companies then they must be cheating somehow.
No, it's politicians grandstanding buying things private industry has spent a trillion dollars developing. Without the latter, the former has trouble bringing you a loaf of bread.
Said over the Internet, brought to you by the US government (Internet -> ARPANET -> Department of Defense -> US government). Which is rather beside the point anyway, unless you're still fighting the ghost of early 1900s Soviet-era socialism what it means in a modern context is the government collecting taxes to provide public services which they may or may not be buying from private companies. There's no contradiction between a public road or a public hospital or a public whatever being built by private companies. But sure, give all the credit for everything to private companies. Let me guess, libertar... I mean libertarian?
OK, so: "that's a big fuck you to their product". Still pretty stupid.
Secondly, as of right now, #gay is a verbatim search term. This affects not just porn, but posts about LGBT politics.
Wait, what? Was that part of this change? That's going to cause a firestorm. Are similar terms banned? Did they really just hang a "straights only" sign on the front door of tumblr?
Why should he? His art is his art.
Far better response would be to move all of it together to a better place, and choose some better social medium.
If you didn't know the time scale had been messed with, the video looks like very thick oil or honey dripping. Some sort of invariant with liquids, I suppose. I thought it was kind of interesting.
I've done time-lapse videos of clouds and things. Haven't done one of paint drying or grass growing.
And if my dad posted to slashdot it'd be "If your computer was made with transistors, you're not old". Vacuum tubes FTW.
