Not necessarily. All usable carbon gets locked up in fat.
THAT kind of GCC has been dead to me for 25 years.
... Blue Strat is lying and blustering again
Blue Strat is dead-on correct on this one.
And even unchecking "use slashboxes", which this feature was originally, does nothing. Thus my sig line.
Sorry , I'm from Oregon....and facebook is still continuous bugs. As is slashdot.
I'm thinking more of companies like facebook and slashdot which seem to skip the QA altogether and just let the users find the bugs, then never repair them.
I was more looking at how the teams and companies who claim to champion CI, like facebook and slashdot, have a tendency to skip beta testing altogether in abuse of their customers.
People are still doing anything serious with QuickBasic?
I'm not quite old enough to have used FORTRAN.
What does age have to do with anything? I took a computational linear algebra course in the late '90s that used FORTRAN nearly exclusively.
That said, I started out, like most kids in the '80s, with BASIC and assembly language (6809 and 6502, in my case). I started college early enough that the introductory computer-science courses were still in Pascal, but pretty much every course that needed to do real work used anything but Pascal...lots of C, with a systems-programming course splitting time between 8086 assembly and VAX assembly and a database course that introduced us to SQL (of course).
The computational linear algebra course mentioned above was a math course specifically for computer-science majors; other engineering students took a different linear-algebra course.
I also picked up Pascal and C shortly thereafter. C stuck, Pascal didn't. I seem to remember learning COBOL and PL/I at some point, along with a bit of fortran.
Java ranks near the top of my list in languages I prefer not to program in if I can avoid it.
Solar panels have a very large capital expense, they are cheap in the long run, but they are not feasible for running industry in poor countries.
Raw, ready-to-mount, single-crystal panels are down to $0.50/watt now, in pallets of ten at about 350 watts each, and have good lifetimes. Even adding the control electronics and batteries for nighttime and bad weather power, and replacing the batteries periodically, that's cheaper than building and running coal plants and their distribution infrastructure (even at third-world labor prices).
The control electronics is mostly semiconductor devices and still benefiting from Moore's Law. Solar panels are still improving, as are batteries (following their own Moore's Law like curves.) Solar has a factor of several in efficiency yet to go, and lot of room for cheaper manufacture. Batteries are pretty efficient, but still have lots of room for improvement in charge/discharge rates, lifetime, and manufacturing cost. Coal plants, meanwhile, are already close to as efficient and cheap to run as they can get. So solar will continue to improve its lead.
The main remaining advantage to coal plants is grid power gives suppliers an ongoing revenue stream and a captive market, while solar provides only an occasional capital purchase.
(But why do you never hear about the greenhouse effect of solar panels?)
Too bad the colonies across the pond are now run by a muppet.
Yeah, and Carthage must be destroyed, too.
Your side lost. Five and a half months ago. Isn't it time you got over it?
Rich corporations and people are allowed to do what they want.
There are exceptions: Volkswagen to pay $2.8 billion in US diesel emission scandal
That's because they cheated the GOVERNMENT.
But it's nice to see the individuals who got hurt (lower mileage once the patches are applied, lower resale value) getting some of the bux for a change.
(Why do you still get robo-calls? Because the Fed preempted state laws that had let people sue the robo-callers for damages.)
