causation exists only within the mental model
You try and stretch the concept too far, given that there obviously are proximate causes.
I thought they called themselves the ROK (making it ROKTC).
Consumer Reports clearly forgot that 0 mph is a speed.
Pesky Theory of Relativity called, want's their "other car was moving" frame shift back.
I'm kinda dumbfounded this consumer freindly move wasn't squelched yet. After all the logic for the FCC nixing net neutrality and consumer privacy was because this stifles innovative revenue streams for productizing consumers. Actually I think they just said "bussiness innovation" for short. In anycase stopping robocalls seems like it will hurt someones revenue stream. You should write your congessman and demand to be productized more! Seriously, what's the angle here. My guess is that maybe the carrier's and google and all the rest want to prevent all the free robo calls and create a partner channel for authorized, paid, robocalls.
I think causation is a mental crutch to help us navigate the world of patterns around us but should not be thought of "real."
You say this just after you wrote, "if you drink poison it will kill you instantly."
You are on to something though. I'd say, "we use 'weakly founded' assertions of causation as a crutch to help us navigate the world of patterns around us." IOW, we stereotype everything all the time, because we just can't individually analyze every person and every circumstance.
If this is true then why hasn't apple sent me a password reset notice? In this particular case I agree with them not paying the ransom as there's no way to verify the passwords would be deleted.
verifying 50 is not a convincer they have millions. turning over 5 to 10% of the number would be. The fact they could easily have done that and didn't tells me they don't have this.
Of course that didn't stop me from changing my password just in case.
Perhaps there needs to be an End User License Agreement for movies that bars unfavorable reviews. **ducks**
Correlation or causation?
After all, education and prosperity are in that mix too.
Exactly. The whole purpose of "yellow light" is that it's a grace period.
Unless... how short are the yellow lights in Chicago? Maybe they should be longer.
Newer versions are turning out to not allow bios disablement. The sad history of this, from what I can peice together is that initially you could disable it in bios. Then newver versions had "hidden" bios diablement. that is to say, no GUI bios diablement but still an editable firmware disablement. Then newer still ones, no possibility to disablement. For these some people have discovered that overwriting certain blocks (basically all blocks after the first block) of this allows disablement without the 30 second shutdown. One can see where this is headed in the next generation very easily.
what you said seems to be fully contradicted in everything I have read on this. People have been trying to years to turn this off. there were a couple of hacks discovered but now those dont work either.
you can't disable it. if it doesn't run it shuts the chip down in 30 minutes.
1) The measure of "fitness for breeding" encompasses those who aren't fit for breeding.
2) "fitness for not breeding" is -- at best -- horrible grammar, and at worst makes no sense.
nope, it's in every core processor chipset.
An adequate bootstrap is a contradiction in terms.
