The Queen's Chain is largely a myth [nzherald.co.nz].
This is the propaganda put out there by the politicians who got us into this mess. Prior to the mid-late 1980's, there was a defacto Queens Chain on all beaches, lakes and major rivers, even if a historic land title existed on a tiny fraction of that land. After these land titles started being sold to overseas interests, that is when access started being restricted, and the government failed to act then and hid behind this "Queens Chain is a myth" propaganda.
The law in NZ has always allowed private ownership of beaches, and other foreshore property, and still does assuming you can convince the current owner to sell it to you.
The law in New Zealand used to recognise the "Queen's chain" as belonging to the people. Private ownership of beaches is a recent thing that came along with the sale of all the profit making government departments to foreign companies.
Hopefully the desire to usher in the apocalypse is not shared by mainstream Republicans.
I'm having trouble figuring out if you're joking, or you're just unfamiliar with the contents the the book of Revelations. In case of the latter, some of the pre-requisites for the apocalypse are that the Jewish people gain control back over Jerusalem, and then Satan will summon up his armies against Jerusalem which will trigger the second coming.
Also it doesn't make sense to compare Edge to browsers that don't run on the same platform, so wtf would you include Safari - it doesn't make sense.
You mean this is another story about Windows CE/Mobile/Phone/RT or whatever they are calling the platform that nobody uses these days?
There are still 4 bit microcontrollers.
Yes, but only in certain very simple, high volume applications that demand low operating power (as opposed to low standby power where modern 16 and 32 bit microcontrollers will suffice), and code is typically just carried over from one model to the next, needing very few assembly programmers to support it. So I don't think 4-bit microcontrollers is the reason for assembly programming suddenly being in demand again.
The long arithmetic example may be more likely, with all the BitCoin farms being built out in China, even if this is something that you do once and put in a library (or just use something like GNU MP to start with).
Multics is security spelled sideways.
