Does "systematic racisms/sexism" exist?
A better question would be: *Can* systemic racism/sexism exist in an industry dominated by cut-throat competition? If you don't hire the best engineers, you lose to a competitor who does.
This paper has uses so many assumptions to reach such an old and obvious answer as to render itself practically useless. I guess the bar is pretty low at the Journal of Cosmology and Astroparticle Physics. Then again Loeb is known for dressing up homework problems and publishing them as amazing revelations. Somehow the reviewers haven't caught on.
For all but a handful of years in my life (and every year for the last two decades) I've had a planet in the way of viewing Perseids.
On the bright side, if I optimistically head out tonight and find that the planet has unexpectedly cleared away, I'm sure the view will be really spectacular.
You think you've got problems with mere clouds. For all but a handful of years in my life (and every year for the last two decades) I've had a planet in the way of viewing Perseids.
fined a sum of $6.75 million
I don't understand this. I expected a fine from hurting Russia on a rich company like Google to a multi-billion dollar budget-filler. This piddling fine is more like a wink and a nod to keep "breaking the 'law'" (let's pretend Putin's Russia has Law).
A DDOS attack does nothing to attack the integrity or security of the data. The success of a DDOS attack only indirectly calls data safety into question - if they were not able to defend against DDOS, perhaps they're also not good enough to maintain security.
As an aside, I'm currently living in Australia, and the site worked fine for me at about 6pm.
Besides the LOX demo and his invention of Refrigerant R-406A "AutoFrost", George was an Alpha Hardware Hacker at Purdue who presented at Usenix conferences. He got a grant to work on multiprocessing, and so he took two VAX 780's, and connected them by the backplane, creating a multiprocessor VAX. Digital Equipment liked it so much that they made a product of it, called the VAX/782. The CPU clock was 5 MHz and there were a lot of DIP-package digital logic ICs in there, with lots of space between them on the PCBs.
Developer previously stated numerous times that it would take "hundreds of hours" to reach the "center of the galaxy (he misspoke and said Universe earlier...)".
Murray said that for typical players. This guy is by definition not the typical player and quite likely rushed towards the centre to reach the bragging rights of that particular goal, after all finding a planet isn't exactly a unique feat. Thereby skipping most of the discoveries, lore or sheer "it's just an interactive screensaver but damn it's pretty so I don't care" moments.
Mind you, people watch train footage. I've built the same repetitive, mundane, boring mob farms and whatnots as everyone else in Minecraft and I enjoyed every single block of it. So I'm pretty sure I will love No Man's Sky.
After all, "... no reasonable prosecutor would bring such a case..."

Some of my readers ask me what a "Serial Port" is. The answer is: I don't know. Is it some kind of wine you have with breakfast?
