The FAA sends their regards.
Given the size of the dome, I'd be interested to see if any micro weather systems happen inside, or what the plans are to mitigate environmental effects.
Its not unheard of for weather to form in large open structures. Take for instance Hangar One at Moffett Airfield: (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hangar_One_%28Mountain_View,_California%29) or the Goodyear Airdock (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Goodyear_Airdock) Though not climate controlled, these have fog (and apparently, rain) due to the massive size.
IPTables is by far the best firewall for linux, and its built-in to boot.
If you're iffy on command-line parameters, install Webmin on your system. It gives you a web interface, and the IPTables page makes configuring your firewall relatively newbie-proof.
I, for one, hate IPTables on the command-line, and much prefer the Webmin method. Its what I use on my home server.
According to TFA on this point:
2. Cap on data roaming charges
i. A service provider must suspend national and international data roaming charges once they reach $100 within a single monthly billing cycle, unless the customer expressly consents to pay additional charges.
ii. A service provider must provide this cap at no charge.
I would hazard a guess that in this case, most telco's would suspend service once you've reached $100 in charges. Either that, or your consent to pay more will be found as part of the conditions in your next contract.
It's also the time you start wearing a gold chain, grow a mohawk, and start pitying fools.
Low speed. Less maneuverability than an airplane. Lame.
Tell that to all the Apple fan-boys out there.
Has anyone really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like?
"Parents can pay for the computers upfront or lease them from the district, with the option to buy after three years. The payments should work out to about $20 to $25 per month, Hayes said. The cost also includes free tech support.
"We realize for some families that will be a stretch," he said. In those cases, the district will provide financial assistance.
Students who don't participate will be able to borrow a school-provided laptop during the day, but they won't be able to take it home, Hayes said."
IMO, $20-25/mo is a fair plan. That should be well within the finances of most families, and as they noted, they will provide financial assistance.
That said, using a unified platform is not a bad idea, but why make students buy heavily marked up hardware? Why not Netbooks with Linux?
It was just a gag by David Copperfield, using smoke and mirrors. It got way out of hand and he sends his apologies.
Real programmers don't write in BASIC. Actually, no programmers write in BASIC after reaching puberty.
