There's no possible way to convince SLPC supporters of that. Those warnings went up a long time ago, and the SLPC just aligned themselves more and more with progressive bias.
Most of the early boards I called were Renegade, one was WWIV, one was Telegard.
Then I discovered a board running Excelsior! and the rest quickly faded. Inherently multi-line, and supported inter-system links, so I was calling one Excelsior! BBS with 6 lines, and one of them was a dedicated linking line to another board the next city over (still a local call, but itself was local to different folks) with 12 lines, and that was linked to yet another with 8, and everyone could communicate. It was... phenomenally addictive. My grades reflected that.
> both sides of the disk were coated with media.
Yup. Some single-sided drives used only the top surface, and some used only the bottom, but the "single-sided" disks didn't specify which systems they were intended for, ergo both sides must've been usable!
I have a box full of those notch punches in the basement. One of these days I'm gonna go to VCFMW and hand 'em out like candy.
The tower doesn't need to know your location for that to happen.
Actually in CDMA, they do, to get the timing-advance that allows soft-handoff to work. It's down to tens of nanoseconds to make the chips line up when they're received at your location, and that means the trilateration accuracy is down to tens of feet.
Also, all modern standards are based on CDMA for the air-interface portion, because it's so efficient.
Look up any of the hyphenated terms if you care to learn more.
And Ma Bell has been doing it for a century. Cable rack in the central offices gets crowded after just a few decades, otherwise.
There's precedent, there are specialized tools and procedures for error reduction, and worldwide there are at least dozens, perhaps hundreds, of people with lots of experience in this very specific field.
You can feel the weight balance to tell how much of the tape is on one reel versus the other. You can rewind and fastforward by gut-feeling, with no display. Every operation of the player is tactile, and there are no hidden options menus, touchscreens, or any of that crap.
Police are not thinking on all cylinders. Anonymity works both ways. They need some undercover agents on Tor joining (and reporting on) plans ASAP (at least to the extent they are leaked to new recruits). I suspect, however, that ISIS recruits have to meet physically with handlers at some point - and at that point the undercover work becomes exceedingly dangerous.
Our small software company had a customer that would often complain, "The computer is sticking it's tongue out at me again!" For a custom module, I installed an error dialog for one particular error that displayed an animated face sticking it's tongue out. When she finally ran into this error, she was so tongue tied, she for the first time did *not* say "The computer is sticking it's tongue out at me!"
Been done on a PC/XT too: http://www.oldskool.org/pc/808...
One year vaper, previously 20 year smoker. I've had the medical labs done to show how much damage was undone in just one year.
At 41, I can run farther and faster, keep up with young folk better than most of my non-smoker friends of the same age. 3 years ago this was not the case.
Your code should be more efficient!
