I like the way his camp talks about "alternate facts". "Alternate facts" is simply a politically correct label for "damned lies". And he, the Liar in Chief, fooled all you yokels!
The only good that can become of a Trump presidency is that it may destroy the Republican party.
Look at the heads of AT&T back in the 80s, names of companies, names of executives spin-offs, and where the money went: AT&T was never broken up, it was just broken into a few pieces that easily colluded behind closed doors to ensure they would get back together eventually, after the people in office had left/given up/died.
This should be modded up up up.
Why? Think about it: Once they have the technology to animate and create extremely realistic-looking scenes, the owners can then create and distribute their own fake news at will; they will own everything from creation to delivery with no one to get in the way of pushing whatever agenda is bought by the highest bidder.
You think people are divided into camps now? Just you wait until they wall off services and get people "on their network"
That's misleading. The language is write once. But unless someone ports the JVM, you can't run the language on a different system.
No it's factual. You don't seem to understand that your knowledge is lacking. The language is open source which was done by Sun. The VM may not be. Sun is not the only one to put out a VM. Microsoft did. IBM did. Depending on the processor used, VMs for Java were released by other parties. Sun open sourced the language. They also put out a VM that works with Windows. Apple has open sourced Swift the language. They are not releasing VMs for Windows.
These days I write PowerShell scripts to automate InfoSec tasks. I would prefer to use Python but the three-letter government agency I work for is a Windows shop.
This still doesn't explain your lack of understanding of programming.
This is personal to me. A friend I knew in high school, went into the service with, and kept in touch with couldn't afford insurance and caught appendicitis. It ruined his credit and nearly his family. In 1992 when he had a heart attack, he just laid down and died rather than calling 911.
That's what happens in the US when you work full time and can't afford insurance.
Trump's father died at 93, so
Yes, but Trump's father didn't piss off the entire intelligence community. Accidents happen...
You can't have Java without the VM. No VM, no Java. Hence, Sun "ported" Java to Windows, Mac and Linux.
Again, please learn what the term "porting" means. One of the strongest features of Java was the fact you didn't have to "port" it to different environments. "Write once" was a feature.
I made the president's list for maintaining a 4.0 GPA in computer programming after I graduated from community college. That took me five years because I was taking two classes per semester, working 60+ hours per week as a video game tester and teaching Sunday school. I'm not a professional software developer. I went into IT support to use my programming background to help users solve difficult problems made difficult by professional software developers.
So after five years at a community college, you finally graduated. But you don't actually work as a programmer. I guess this explains why you don't understand basic concepts of programming.
Swift for Cygwin and Windows is called a "port" on the swift-dev list. The Cygwin port requires a hack to compile the binary for distribution. The Windows port requires more effort for a native binary.
Wow. So much wrong in that understanding. Cygwin is a VM. Please look what that is. Swift is a programming language. Please look that up as well.
People in India use antibiotics for EVERYTHING. Headache? Take antibiotic. Bad eyesight? Antibiotic. Bad marriage? take antibiotic. Antibiotics are cheap and people there don't know any better. They're creating horrible superbugs there because they *are* overusing antibiotics. The people here complaining about the U.S. overusing antibiotics are making a pointless argument: The bug was gotten in India, not the U.S. (though yes, there are superbugs here, but that's n ot the point of the article).
Also, this is one reason to keep up the CDC: If that superbug finds a way into the U.S. we could get well and truly fucked, and it's the CDC's job to help ensure stuff like this stays contained and doesn't contaminate the rest of the population.
Restriction does always result in trying to find a way around it. What they try to do long term is make it so people never realize what they're missing out on.
I assume you're talking about the TPP [slashdot.org] and, in particular, the point that this person [slashdot.org] is trying to make about the TPP being good for the Japanese auto industry and bad for the American auto industry? If not I don't know what you're talking about, but that's the talking point which was making the rounds.,
I'm pretty anyone who thinks that TPP is good for the Japanese auto industry doesn't know that the vast majority of "Japanese" cars sold in America are made in America. Toyotas, Hondas, and Nissans that are sold in the US are for the most part assembled in the US. Parts come from all over the world. For a long time the luxury brands like Infiniti, Lexus, and Acura were made in Japan but that is changing too.
For example, Steven Chu - a Nobel Prize laureate tapped to lead department of Housing?
Steven Chu, who has a Nobel Prize in Physics was Secretary of Energy. Please check your facts before you spout them.
