All you need is the --enable-alsa configure option. The resulting Firefox will prefer PulseAudio if it is present, but will use pure ALSA if it is not.
I personally despised having to copy character sheets because of the thousands of times things got erased and re-written. Have you no memory of the billions of eraser particles that get everywhere over time???
This is why, for my games that normally have excessive erasing (Cyberpunk is one of them), I have char. sheets that are laminated or just put a char sheet in a sheet protector and use wet-erase pens to mark down info.
WoTC isn't building DNDBeyond, they are just supplying the ideas and data for it. They have partnered with Curse to build the product. As Curse has been supplying and maintaining one of the largest repositories of WoW mods for at least a decade, I think they are more than capable of keeping up with the upgrade cycle of Android and IOS. Especially seeing as how it's apparently not going to be an app.
There is a community data file that adds the vast majority of the non-SRD data to Herolab. I use it for DnD 5e and Shadowrun 5 (for which it is a god-send). The Community data file is regularly updated with new content and can be accessed by adding it's url to the list of sources that Herolab checks when it looks for system updates.
Clarke did very little writing on robot brains.
Um, I'll have to assume that you weren't around for April, 1968, when the leading AI in popular culture for a long, long, time was introduced in a Kubrick and Clarke screenplay and what probably should have been attributed as a Clarke and Kubrick novel. And a key element of that screenplay was a priority conflict in the AI.
Well, you've just given up the argument, and have basically agreed that strong AI is impossible
Not at all. Strong AI is not necessary to the argument. It is perfectly possible for an unconscious machine not considered "strong AI" to act upon Asimov's Laws. They're just rules for a program to act upon.
In addition, it is not necessary for Artificial General Intelligence to be conscious.
Mind is a phenomenon of healthy living brain and is seen no where else.
We have a lot to learn of consciousness yet. But what we have learned so far seems to indicate that consciousness is a story that the brain tells itself, and is not particularly related to how the brain actually works. Descartes self-referential attempt aside, it would be difficult for any of us to actually prove that we are conscious.
You're approaching it from an anthropomorphic perspective. It's not necessary for a robot to "understand" abstractions any more than they are required to understand mathematics in order to add two numbers. They just apply rules as programmed.
Today, computers can classify people in moving video and apply rules to their actions such as not to approach them. Tomorrow, those rules will be more complex. That is all.
Agreed that a Robot is no more a colleague than a screwdriver.
I think you're wrong about Asimov, though. It's obvious that to write about theoretical concerns of future technology, the author must proceed without knowing how to actually implement the technology, but may be able to say that it's theoretically possible. There is no shortage of good, predictive science fiction written when we had no idea how to achieve the technology portrayed. For example, Clarke's orbital satellites were steam-powered. Steam is indeed an efficient way to harness solar power if you have a good way to radiate the waste heat, but we ended up using photovoltaic. But Clarke was on solid ground regarding the theoretical possibility of such things.
Linux scales to far larger systems than does Windows. Microsoft does not run on the top 500 machines.
Microsoft has been squarely beaten in mobile and enterprise systems. Microsoft is now the "OS of the gap" and is being crushed in the vice of Linux market share.
Your code should be more efficient!
