So everything is now Slashdot? I guess I'm ahead of the curve since I've been here since about 2000.
Ugh. Eddie is Tommy's other nickname. That's what I get for focusing too much on trying to be funny.
Yeah, it was all fun and games until Eddie decided to electrocute an elephant. That was gruesome and cruel.
But the barbecue was pretty good.
And we know that while warp drive might be possible, it's not feasible and we probably won't be seeing it in our lifetimes.
The technology advances are often far more gradual than we would expect (and hope), but no less transformative. Just think (if you're old enough) how life was before the Internet became ubiquitous. Has life radically changed since then? I wouldn't say it has, but many, many parts of our lives have changed radically, things we see and do every day, and mostly for the better.
I think AI is going to be the same. It's not going to manifest in the ways we commonly expect (e.g., computers you can converse with, etc.), but will come about gradually, with software getting smarter and smarter until things we commonly see, say 10-20 years from now, would have to fall under the definition of "A.I." even though it happened gradually enough that it didn't occur to us... because we don't yet have HAL 9000.
But... but... Trump is teh evil!!!1!!!!
That's a much more reasonable explanation, right?
The prime will need to have a different aspect ratio... like 19:11...
Because it's a 23-year-old joke? A significant portion of Slashdot reader weren't even born when the Pentium fiasco went down.
KDE 3.5 had the best menu system for apps ever. I've been doing a similar thing for about 20 years in Windows, too.
You organize the start menu yourself. I use the following categories: Converters, Development, Editors, Games, Networking, System and Viewers.
Every country has 11 inches in their feet. They also have a 12th inch.
Even as we speak, dedicated fans are camping out at McDonald's all around the country waiting for the return of the McDodo, cooked in the finest hydrogenated phlogiston.
You can probably find AlleyCat on the Internet Archive and run it in DOSBox.
Apple makes things people love. Microsoft makes things people tolerate.
That said, I don't own any Apple products. I do own some Microsoft products.
Gotta love how religion brings out the hate and violence in stupid people.
So does atheism. I think the real problem is stupid people.
I kind of thought so too, until I tried it. Now I like it. It forces you do to do something you should be doing to make the code readable, and it's something I always do anyway. It's not brain-dead, it's just different. You might not prefer it, and if not, I think that's understandable, but it's definitely not a bad idea.
The reason why worry kills more people than work is that more people worry than work.
