Yet another case of popular media predicting actual science.
Seriously, I think there was at least one James Bond ("Never Say Never"?) with this theme as well as one in which eyes were carried around in plastic baggies to break security. I think the big part of this was the "ick" factor to create audience buzz.
It took me four reloads to get to the page.
As for his home theatre? Meh.
That's nothing - I'm going to watch it twice!
I can see why people may want to post things anonymously but I tend to think of them as trolls/putting something up they aren't willing to own up to.
So, unless they are absolute genius or make an important point, I'll just let them be.
I have a Win (various), Mac, Linux and Chromebook devices which I install OS (as well as browser) previews on to test my software on and hopefully give me a bit of runway to report a problem in an upcoming release. As a few others have noted, my primary (development) systems have stable versions of the OSes in which I review all updates and only install security patches.
If somebody is so irresponsible and so chained to the idea of being on the bleeding edge that you put previews on your primary machines, then I wouldn't trust you with my company's software.
Who is this "We" that were wondering in the question? Why would you think that serious professionals (or even semi-serious hackers) would do such a, frankly stupid, thing?
As always, we appreciate the time taken to respond to the questions and you're insight into the life, the universe and everything.
If you haven't been to a doctor in 15 years - how do you know you are "in better health today than I ever was before"?
I'm very suspicious about the claim that you are maintaining 350lbs on a 1,500 calorie a day diet. With any kind of exercise, you should be losing weight, not maintaining it. Maybe if you were eating 1,500 calories a meal, three times a day you would be maintaining that weight.
I'm happy you feel good - but at 350lbs and not losing weight on what should be minimal caloric input, I suspect that you should be seriously thinking about swallowing a bit of humble pie and going for a much delayed doctor's appointment.
After all, you don't want those relatives of yours spilling drinks and cigarette ashes into your coffin.
Aren't we at the point where enough is enough?
Isn't this supposed to be the premier site for âoepropellerheadsâ? I think that it is long past when annoyance this should have been fixed.
The article reminded me of "The House on the Hill" in which statistical outliers (ie immortals) are organized and living parallel to mainstream society over the ages.
Maybe we're starting to see an increase in the number of outliers?
Of course, you could point out a number of inconsistencies going back to the original series that are just as large.
Maybe this is a function of, let me think of a word for it, "fiction".
It's not real so we can try out different ideas.
Would it be:
- Humphrey Bogart
- Elliot Gould
- Robert Mitchum
- Dick Powell
- James Garner
- Robert Montgomery
- James Caan
- George Montgomery
- I think there's another couple or three actors that also have played the Mr. Chandler's detective.
Not to take away Mr. Takei's performance as "Sulu" in ST:TOS, but it's a role and when another actor performs it they should be allowed to put their own spin on it. That goes for the writers, the director and the producers.
I guess you could argue that the creator has the final say, but apparently Mr. Takei approach Gene Roddenberry about making Sulu gay and he refused saying that he was pushing too many buttons already and didn't want the show to get cancelled.
Unfortunately, Mr. Roddenberry is dead and the franchise has been moved onto others who have different ideas about the characters.
Personally, I think that's a good thing.
I daresay that was the first "reboot" and it set the bar for terrible.
Can I sue M$ for all the time I spent making sure Win10 *wouldn't* be put on my Windows 7 development machines?
Thanx for your comments.
Slashdot is an interesting community. People are generally at a much higher than the average poster/board but you still get a lot of anger when somebody challenges other people's world views.
