Welcome to the oligarchy that is our world.
Hmm, actually looking at the picture there's no way a cartridge could be there (drive is in the way).
But you can also see that the 1541 drive door is not closed (it's the twist down type).. Is someone pulling some shenanigans on this one?
Perhaps it not used (and may not work).
It's possible it's running from cartridge (remember those!!) and the 1541 is just sitting collecting dust.
Excellent informative post and explained very well.
I've tried explaining this to people before but you have expressed it so well I'm cutting and pasting that into my collection of "here's one I prepared earlier" answers!
Have you much insight into T-class (tripath) amps. I've heard that T-amps produce the least distortion of all popular amplifier designs, are cheap to make and cheap to drive. Any wisdom here?
There has always been and will always be unemployment and the figures will move up and down due to all sorts of events (economics, war, disruptive tech, disease, weather, etc).
But labour most certainly gets reallocated/redistributed, history has shown this.
Labour get redistributed.
Has any technology ever had any long term unemployment increasing effect throughout human history? I've heard and read about the fears of human unemployment crisis due to X tech, but I'm yet to see any hard evidence of it in the real world.
If machines are doing ALL the jobs, then other than for social/psychological reasons I can't see why unemployment is an issue, we'll have food thanks to "robots".
The US labour force will increase by 6% and provides increased GDP without the extra mouths to feed, infrastructure to support (roads, water, sewage), people to house, etc.
There's some value in that.
Did the article say wilderness is being lost to habitation?
I'd assume a significant proportion of wilderness loss is for agriculture, mining, clearing (for resources, wood, etc) .
I'm not sure habitation has much to do with it at all. Fill a city with another 2M people and you're going to need to clear wilderness to farm food for said people.
Surely that's a stawman argument.
"Reducing use of fossil fuels" != "halting all progress"
You use the phrase "slow this progress" but the remainder of your comment implies almost halting progress.
Limiting use of fossil fuels has (relatively short in terms of human history) economic consequences which will be overcome. If we drastically reduced the use of fossil fuels today I doubt it will take hundreds of years to find a working cleaner alternative, especially when there is economic motive.
You're going to feel pretty silly rocking up to the spoon race without a spoon now aren't you!
Man get with the times... Zmodem FTW!
Did you all read that? Someone added a mundane feature to an app!
WOW I'm so shocked, this is freak'n awesome!
How is this news?
I'm certainly talking about market spot prices.
So far there has been sufficient supply (note, they DID/DO purchase the power at the stated prices) It's just not generated locally by our own market, so when we fall short on local supply we need to purchase from our non local suppliers who can and do set their spot price.
So the facts to back up my contention is that at no point was there not enough supply to meed demand. It's only the cost of the supply that's the point of contention.
IF they are forced (due to supply constraints and not economic constraints) to start doing rolling blackouts or similar due to inability to meet demand then I'll stand corrected. But having worked directly with our largest whole-sale provider to implement demand management systems at the customer end (experimental) I can be rather confident that the supply is there if they are willing to pay the price.
In past years our local suppliers would do rolling blackouts during high demand periods to avoid paying for costly supply. This typically occurred during summer. This has been offset by using roor-top-solar. But still, it's always been about price, not availability.
Compulsory voting + laissez-faire attitude to politics + ignorance = same government doing same shit over and over.
Our voting system is an absolute joke. No one has any idea who or why they are voting, unless you're a xenophobe then there's the Hanson clan, but they are all just suit wearing knobs and the one who has the most charismatic appearance during the campaign wins.
Exactly - there's plenty of supply, it's just charged at an insane rate since "They have no choice - want power? Pay what we ask or start doing rolling blackouts"
It's a commercial/political/greed issue.
After an instrument has been assembled, extra components will be found on the bench.
