So yes, Is the deep state of the USA evil?
This is just a precursor to a state-level tax on AirBnB. Why should localities get that tax money when the state can have it?
Government does nothing out of benevolence. This is no exception.
Absolutely. I have several sets of bear arms mounted above my fireplace. I love the fact that I can have as many bear arms as I want. They're so furry and make for excellent decor.
Noise? What is this noise thing you speak of? I don't hear any noise...
That's what Parallel Construction is for...
The FBI is allowed to distribute child pornography. The BBC should have let the FBI handle this investigation.
So first they are worth more, and then they are worth both?
Can you help clarify?
The worker called the AWS internal helpdesk and the BOFH on the other end said "Okay, log in as root and type this... rm -rf slash... that'll fix it"
Point to Multipoint transmitters in unlicensed ISM bands are limited to 36dBm EIRP. Point to Point transmitters in those bands are limited to 48dBm EIRP.
There's a reason people that own one cat go crazy and have brain damage and end up owning more of those things.
The Toxoplasma Gondii requires cats to multiply, so it alters the behavior of its host rodents in order to steer them towards a cat's digestive system.
Now, humans and cats have lived together for millenia; it makes perfect sense that the Toxoplasma Gondii might also have steered us into giving their furry brothels a comfortable place in our homes and our beds... And for the cats, they have two species directly feeding them: Mice and Men. Perfect case of symbiotic evolution.
You'll never see Lassie do anything that smart.
Now, back to the parent post about working at PetSmart:
I've seen coworkers that were normal before become irritable and irrational after getting a cat.
Are you sure that's not just caused by working retail for long enough?
And then there was me, working at Home Depot, wearing the trademark Orange Apron. We had a cat in the store; it ate the mice that lived on the birdseed in the Seasonal Department. As I walked into the lunchroom, about 30 people eating lunch, big shift change time of day...
"Hey Lawrence! I hear you found the store cat!"
"Well, I found part of the store cat..."
Does mental illness lead to owning a cat, though?
Being a crack dealer seems to lead to owning a pit bull, so why not?
Given the above, I'm proud to be a cat person. We must be nuts... why else would we put up with an egotistical, narcissistic, impatient, violent, snobby creature in our homes?
Better to have such a creature in my home than in the White House.
Great printer, those old Panasonics. Fast, clean, quiet, durable. Also loved the Epson MX-80 and the Okidata ML320.
I had a DEC LA-36 teletype (nb. not a TeleType) attached to my TI-99/4A back in the day... its 7 pin printhead lacked true descenders, so the print matched the text on the TI-99/4A's screen!
By the time I got to the Amiga 1000 and 500, I had a hand-me-down HP LaserJet I. What a tank. A Canon photocopier with HP's modifications, and doubled as a great ozone generator. The printer was connected to the Amiga by a 300 or 1200 baud RS-232 link. Annoyingly, I couldn't print anything from the BBSes while I was online - the Amiga's single serial port was needed for the modem.
Nowadays, there's a Unix mainframe in my right front pocket. And I can wirelessly print to a Samsung color laser printer that's 10x faster and 1/4 the weight. Don't even get me started on that Chromecast thing that's smaller than a videocassette and faster than a drive to Blockbuster.
But I do miss the quality of the old stuff. The old HP LaserJet just happened to be the very first (shared with the Apple LaserWriter) of its kind. Cost-reduction was not a goal; quality was. And it showed.
I miss HP.
Nice to meet another Slashdot old-timer...
So, they got a letter from big government, and decided to give up and go home? That must have been a seriously threatening letter. How dare they try to innovate and compete against the large corporate oligarchs like Google, Apple, and Tesla?
You could, you know, go to the linked article and watch the videos. That is, if you wanted to know what the quality of the images was like.
