The problem here is clearly about the leadership changing priorities and budgets before anything gets finished.
The projects that NASA work on have long timelines, this is not compatible with budgets which change annually and where the govenment who holds the purse strings also often changes (as in this case) before the project is completed.
This is not too different in concept (but is admitedly different in scale) to software development where if priorities are allowed to change before projects are completed, nothing ever will be finished.
Maybe NASA can try and work to smaller achievable goals within a smaller timeline that have a clearly defined benefit?
The BBC has quietly updated its hugely popular iPlayer with a verification layer that closes the door on open source implementations of RTMP (real-time messaging protocol) streaming, The Register has learned.
To me, this is utterly baffling. SWF verification makes absolutely no difference to tools designed to cirvumvent the BBC's copy protection methods (get_iplayer works fine).
All it has done is alienated the creators of some very slick iplayer apps.
Needless to say im withdrawing my TV license
This was NIN official footage that he release on his site (just prior to the remix section going live) with the aim that fans would build their own videos and submit them to NIN.
Can't spot the link on the NIN site any more - but I definatley saw it last week. As you can see from their site however this is a feature for fan based videos.
Trent is a very smart guy and definatley is leading the way in the future of the music business.
did someone make a type in the poll?
I guestimate that I have about 150ft (yes lots) but these radio buttons won't let me pick both!
If you read the arictle you may notice that the planet doesn't get a sunset due to it having a captured rotation:
From the article:
"it is so close to its sun that its orbit is like the Moon around Earth. One face is always pointed towards its sun."
ie no sunset - sorry
I'll tell you what's wrong with it, my lad. 'E's dead, that's what's wrong with it!
No, no, 'e's uh,...he's resting.
When I drive I generally don't drive 100% of the time at full throttle. Being at a constant velocity all you need to do is overcome drag. This will obvious depend on the car but you know they will be working hard to being this down so at 50mph you may find that you only need 1/4 throttle which means the 5HP generator will keep you nice and topped up. Then at zero throttle you are making a net gain.
All this means is that the maths is much more complicated that your model and depending on the journey a 5HP generator could add significatly more range.
As for the car emissions standards they measure percentage of certains harmful gases not absolute volume. So a small car with a "bad" emissions can easily be much less harmful to the environment than a large engine vehicle that pushes out massive volumes of exhaust gases which results in the "good" car emiting more harmful gas than the "bad" small car. At which point a 5HP generator is not so bad for the environment as say the 150HP engine you are replacing.
