Microcode didnt come until the Pentium Pro
This is simply not true. UPDATABLE microcode appeared in the Pentium Pro, before that it was burned directly into the chip. Microcode has been used since the 8086, possibly since the 4004.
I guess I do have more to say...
It makes less sense for American states, but a lot more for former British/Russian states.
You do realize of course that Massachussetts IS a former British state (well, colony), right? And that it's title as a Commonwealth dates from that time, right?
however I'm ready to bet that the majority of English language speakers would say that 'as she walked home, one of the "Mean Girls" drove by and threw a can of Red Bull at her' means the Red Bull can was empty.
Not sure you know the use of the word "of" in this sentence. If we simply change the type of container that is used in the sentence the meaning becomes clearer "as she walked home, one of the "Mean Girls" drove by and threw a cup of Red Bull at her." There is no reason to believe that a can is more likely to be empty than a cup, but I am fairly certain in this case, you read the can as being empty and the cup as being full. If the writer had meant an empty can then they would had to have said "a red bull can" or "a can of air." To be completely honest both interpretation could be wrong and it was not a can at all, but the Red Bull contents of the can that where thrown.
Now I realize that both interpretations are valid in this context. I'm just saying if you are going to be pedantic, don't sound like an idiot while doing it.
Now excuse me while I pour myself a glass of water.

How horribly fascist.
what was the reason we commonly use mice again? I don't remember the exacts, but isn't it something like their immune systems respond similarly or something?
Just wait until LED light bulbs start hitting the fan.
I remain utterly unimpressed by LEDs for home lighting. CFLs have been vastly superior in efficiency, lifetime, and COST forever.
LEDs are nice where durability matters... I might opt for LEDs in my refrigerator, car, flashlight, etc., but for your house, who cares?
And don't bother bitching about the millisecond start-up time, that you can see the 200Hz flicker, etc. You just make a fool out of yourself.
Seriously. Many copies. Multiple, ad-nauseum uber redundancy. And, so what about that DRM crap? Is it _that_ important to preserve pop music? If so, when did DRM ever stop us? Burn a CD/DVD/Blu-Ray and then RIP it, upload the thing. Put it on a hardened RAID, what...ever.
True, technology is an ever more complex cycle. I guess we should try to get the info/code down to lowest common denominator. Text? If so, what language? Boggles the mind..but if the unthinkable happens then maybe we can assist the great minds millenia hence rediscover what we did. What we did right, and how to avoid what we did wrong.
So I repeat, whatever the content is, tech records can be fragile. To paraphrase, "We need copies. Lots of copies."
ouch 504 US gallons per mile that makes a 747 look cheap to run.
