That's fine if you have about $1000 worth of bitcoins, for amounts larger than $10K it becomes unpractical.
Apparently guys with those salaries aren't as smart as their employer perceives them to be.
Thanks for the answer. You may not realize this but for someone outside the US this can be really confusing. So basically, because of the plurality voting system the battle will usually be between two candidates. And any form of protest vote will go largely unnoticed, because on the level of electoral votes they will always sum up to zero.
One thing though. You say that if none of the candidates get the majority of electoral votes, the House of Representatives decides. Aren't those people that have been elected several years ago? I mean, their political color will largely determine who will win. Then again, I guess usually the third candidate will have zero votes so the top contender always has a majority. Has this procedure ever been needed?
I'm not from the US. What I don't understand is why, with Trump and Clinton tied for being the most hated person, almost nobody will vote for a third party candidate. Like for instance Gary Johnson. Why is that?
That was the first thing that struck my mind as well.
Several months back there was a call for questions for Ray Kurzweil. https://features.slashdot.org/...
Whatever happened to the answers?
1995? I'm pretty sure I used linux before 1995 and I'm 100% sure I used slackware as distribution. Must be more like 1992 or 1993.
Too bad the original squeezebox line has been discontinued. I still buy some used ones every once in a while. The whole family depends on them. I think they are great.
The simulations within simulations would each be smaller or you would run into storage problems. Since our universe is not infinitely big the simulations we would eventually create would be less interesting than our universe, and if there was ever a simulation in that simulation it would be less interesting still. And so on, up to a point were a simulation really doesn't make any sense anymore. This in my opinion reduces the chance that we're living in a simulation. Now if our universe also has a finite lifetime it would certainly diminish the chances for us living in a simulation. Let's say that about half way the lifetime of our universe we are so far advanced that we can create a meaningful simulation of a universe. If the simulation would only be half the size as our universe but would run twice as slow we would need 13 billion years before we could watch some earthling like intelligence pop up. It would be very dull indeed. But by the time it would the 'people' in our simulation would be so advanced that they could start their own simulation, our time would be up. And from that, theirs as well.
Nah, I think I'm real.
I'm still waiting for the answers of 'ask ray kurzweil'. It's been two months already.
it was an asus extensa 7630, we figured it to be about 7 years old. On the plus side, yesterday my mom brought me a nice bottle of wine as a thank-you.
I predict new pc sales will go through the roof. My dad asked me to upgrade his laptop to windows 10. Three hours later, he had a new OS, but without wifi and lan. That's the time I realized his laptop is too old. Tried a quick search for drivers, put them on a usb stick etc, but couldn't get it to work within half an hour. To put an end to the frustration I bought him a new laptop. Yeah, maybe I shouldn't have given up so soon, but it's better for everyone this way.
While the bug was discovered using Prime95, it could affect other industries that rely on complex computational workloads, such as scientific and financial institutions.
How about porn?
When trying to make machines intelligent, what do you think is the next great problem that needs to be resolved? In other words what are the things lacking most in our theoretical framework for machine learning to push through new barriers?
Thank you for your contributions and inspiration.
