Copyright policy is an important issue as is hypocrisy
Well there are some limits to what you suggest as well, due to quantum physics, uncertainty principle, etc. Through I doubt we are very close to those limits yet.
I guess you'll be held in contempt of court until you remember the password. Duration: indefinite.
The implication is you will only be able to buy faster RAM, not more RAM. Having the same number of states but running computations on them faster isn't really the same thing as having more states or more complex circuits.
A 100000 year-old piece of code is not "outdated" if the original software is 4 billion years old. In fact, it is actually brand new.
Yeah... Debian experimental-style new. But a lot depends on your definition of "original"; quite a few patches have been made over time so perhaps little (if any) of the original code is left.
As for 100,000 year-old code: pfff... I keep a some local repositories around that see regular updates. Daily *and* nightly builds, a full suite of regression tests on real hardware, automated backups... the works.
On a side note: the hell with versioning or changelogs. Just kick out a stable release every couple of years, stick a funny name on it, and call it a day.
I will have fun. LOTS of fun.
Now if only I could pay a fee so I no longer had to deal with twits.
Google capitalism and Hillary corporatism hardly seems leftist.
Hillary's VP pick, Tim Kaine, is well known to be in the pocket of the Virgina coal industry.
would be to have no ads at all.
Who is going to buy all this stuff if they don't have jobs?
And there lies the heart of the problem: purchasing power is coupled to having a job.
As technology marches forward, that coupling has to be let go. Or at least loosened. The majority of the population needs to have some purchasing power even if there's no job for them. Think basic income.
The alternative: (almost) everything automated, production equipment (including robots) in the hands of a few corporations & the billionaires at their top, with the rest of the population jobless / out of money (and in the extreme case: out of housing or food). Great recipe for say, a nice little civil war. As it has been several times in history.
The automation itself isn't a bad thing, it increases productivity so we can have more nice things or do fun stuff more of the time. But the fruits of that increased productivity should be divided somewhat evenly over people. If it ends up in the hands of a few you have a recipe for disaster.
I don't need to stand by the rotation theory. However, the 2.5 degrees that the Earth rotates are about equivalent to the downrange distance.
The first stage is going about 1/5 of the target LEO orbital velocity at separation. While you might well model the trajectory as a parabola over flat ground, given the lack of fuel I would expect that SpaceX puts a lot more care into their trajectory. So far I've failed to attract the attention of the person responsible for Flight Club, the most trusted modeling of SpaceX flights, but I'll message him directly.
It is even illegal to sell unpasteurized milk in most of EU.
Depends on how & where. For example: I'm pretty sure most dairy farmers in my area will be happy to have a meet & greet with one of their end users, tap a few litres into a bottle, and take ~3x the wholesale price they are getting from factory.
That's unpasteurized milk, full fat, straight from cow -> cooling tank -> end user's fridge (leave it there overnight to skim off the fat). As has been done for ages regardless what EU rules say about it. Thankfully EU bureaucrats haven't rotted everyone's brain.. yet...
Ars Technica allows 30 minutes, I believe, and it doesn't seem to be abused. People that reply will quote the bit they reply to so it's clear what they refer to anyway.
So how about 30 minutes editing window, and a quick, one-button-press to quote the parent post? Just to encourage people to include the original bits in their replies?
For added protection you could colour the edited text in dark purple, say, just to make it clear to people what has been edited?
Well, Alastair, you should probably not get snotty and ad-hominem, unless you want me to comment on how a one-time sci-fi author and the Unix guy at Dish doesn't really have more authority than the random person one might find in the SpaceX group on Reddit.
It happens there are a few people over there who are rocketry professionals, have the math, and have followed SpaceX long enough. So, sure, their opinion can indeed be trusted.
So far, we have a suggestion from one of the lesser folks there that raising the apogee takes advantage of the Earth's rotation. We'll see if we get the attention of the right people.
