There is a perplexing amount of GNOME hate in the top comments. I'm a very happy user. I've been using Linux almost exclusively in all capacities since about 1999 and have sampled and/or used a lot of desktop environments. GNOME is the best, IMHO.
Slashdot is... going down the toilet?
No, because Betteridge.
Only because Fortran stores multidimensional arrays in column-major order, while every other language in the known universe uses row-major order.
Julia is another that I know of, not surprisingly because it continues the scientific computing traditions of Fortran in many ways. From TFM:
Multidimensional arrays in Julia are stored in column-major order
This country (with no hostile neighbors) will cease to exist if it doesn't spend more on war than the next 7 most militaristic countries combined?
Look at the naive little baby who fell for the "oh we're Canada we're so nice and so sorry about everything no threat here!" act.
And because the current administration doesn't believe in climate change they are defunding the satellite imaging that is used to gather proof for it.
But I thought it was already settled science? Why do we need to keep pouring federal money into programs to tell us something already settled?
You add some angular momentum. That's the way 9 out of 10 physicists prefer to get their spin.
Holy shit I'd really like to talk to that 10th physicist!
I find that claims that white people are as frequently the objects of out and out hate speech tend to be pretty hyperbolic.
I think you just don't notice. One of the critical functions of our brains is making most of the world irrelevant. There's an infinite number of facts in any room, from the patterns of scuff marks on the floor to the discolorations in the paint on the walls etc etc. If you noticed all those things you're probably on drugs or brain damaged and incapable of functioning. So you just don't notice shit that isn't either a tool to help you achieve your objectives or an obstacle in your way. Somebody saying "kill white people" doesn't register as obstacle for you. But you absolutely have leftist celebs like Lena Dunham saying we need to "end white males" or Sarah Silverman going on about how she's glad the Jews killed Jesus and she'd do it again. These are not nice things to say. They do not help me achieve my goal of racial and religious harmony, so I notice them. On the other hand if someone said "fuck Judaism and we need to end Jewish females," boy ears would perk up. If you notice one and not the other it's because you fundamentally don't find the idea of eliminating whites offensive.
Those "places in the western world" don't have a permanent racial grievance industry.
The idea works in theory. It does not work in practice because the demographics of the USA are not the demographics of Norway.
Sure, those are all interesting stories, but they don't really have anything to do with this. There's no political reason to lie about a battery technology. It either works (great!) or there's a flaw in the design, in which case "oops, now we know better."
Can I get some food that gives me lots of energy and no calories? perhaps you could sell it using your not-ad promotions?
Chrome might have remained unhackable.
Or quite possibly people can get more money for their Chrome exploits elsewhere, so they naturally don't want to submit - and then lose - good exploits here in this competition.
No I'm giving free money to the gifted. There's no point in putting someone who fails through university. All that does is result in crap graduates, a devalued degree, and create a general demand for even more education or in the worst case create a general demand for a degree that is not needed. This forces people to get degrees for basic jobs that don't need them.
When you enact this system, the result will be little money (proportionally) for blacks and latinos, and more money (proportionally) for Jews, asians, and whites. Al Sharpton and Van Jones and Maxine Waters will be calling you a Nazi so fast your head will spin. Your solution is politically impossible while the race baiting left exists.
Correction: saying "kill white people."
