I admit, I've mostly done it for speed purposes, but my understanding is that the record limit is per partition, so you could also use it to deal with record limits.
They could either partition based on user IDs (might be faster to select by for the bulk of the queries), or by date (making it easier to manage autonumber fields).
It's a crowded market.
Give me a WebOS phone with a real keyboard, and I'll be happy to wait in line all night for it.
(I don't even care about the lack of third party apps. Well, except for the crap HP pulled when they hobbled the Google Maps app, and replaced it with Bing Maps.)
My theory on Qwikster was that Netflix signed something w/ the movie publishers saying that they had to pay an amount based on how many Netflix customers there were
If Netflix had come out and said 'yes, the name's stupid, but we're doing this to say FU to the movie industry', people would've loved them. (but they would've shot themselves in the foot for whenever they had to renew those contracts)
Specifically they like the space weather data from STEREO, which comes down highly compressed on 30m dishes, rather than the larger Deep Space Network dishes. (70m?).
They keep insisting that image artifacts are evidence of space ships larger than earth that travel million of miles an hour. This of course assumes that what's being seen in the images are 1 AU away, and not simply particles that are inches away from the telescope (or even hitting the detector directly)
(I was designated 'Emergency On-Call' in the last government shutdown, because I manage services for distributing data that's used for space weather forecasting
I remember messing w/ SuperCard when it first came out. (if I remember correctly, it was like Hypercard, but with support for color).
Based on the wikipedia page on it, they added MacOS X support in 2002, and it now runs natively on Intel macs.
There's also a note that there's a windows runtime for it. (but not an editor).
Of course, the basic version is $179, and the one w/ extra stuff is $279
The only thing that I can't figure out is how you get people the player -- do you have to distribute it w/ your stack, or is there somewhere people can download it from once and be done w/ it?
I'm guessing that they've read the BOFH, but realized that there's much more reporting on solar-induced radiation
(and the disclaimer: I work for the Solar Data Analysis Center, but I'm not a scientist, and don't speak for my place of work, etc, blah blah blah)
... like how killing city rats may cause diseases to spread faster:
Now, it's possible that this technique manages to kill every rat in the colony, so they don't scatter
I'd think they'd want to use carbon monoxide, not dioxide, at the very least
OR bagels! OR bagels! We don't LIKE bagels around here! We want no bagels, no toast, no teacakes, no buns, baps, or baguettes, no croissants, no crumpets, no muffins, no pancakes, no potato cakes and no hot-cross buns and *definitely* no smegging flapjacks!
Look, *I* don't want any toast, and *he* doesn't want any toast. In fact, no one around here wants any toast. Not now, not ever. NO TOAST.
From what I've read, this is a net wash for Apple, because they get to reduce their US taxes by the amount they pay in foreign taxes.
Therefore, Apple would get $14B or so re-patriated, without having to pay US taxes for doing so.
Currently, Apple has a huge cash reserve, but it's not in US money
Actually, they were following instructions. There were a few articles shortly after the incident that said that LANL had updated their procedures documentation, and somehow the LANL documentation specified 'organic' instead of 'inorganic':
A typographical error in a revision to a LANL policy manual for repackaging waste led to a wholesale shift from clay litter to the wheat-based variety.
The revision, approved by LANL, took effect Aug. 1, 2012, mere days after the governor's celebratory visit to Los Alamos, and explicitly directed waste packagers at the lab to "ENSURE an organic absorbent (kitty litter) is added to the waste" when packaging drums of nitrate salt.
"Does it seem strange that the procedure was revised to specifically require organic kitty litter to process nitrate salt drums?" Freeman, Nuclear Waste Partnership's chief nuclear engineer at WIPP, asked a colleague in a May 28 email.
Freeman went on to echo some of the possible reasons for the change bandied about in earlier emails, such as the off-putting dust or perfumed scents characteristic of clay litter. But his colleague, Mark Pearcy, a member of the team that reviews waste to ensure it is acceptable to be stored at WIPP, offered a surprising explanation.
"General consensus is that the 'organic' designation was a typo that wasn't caught," he wrote, implying that the directions should have called for inorganic litter.
Officials at LANL declined to comment about whether a typographical error led to the switch to organic kitty litter.
I don't know what they're planning, but subsidizing to ensure the availability of taxis is likely enough.
In many areas (I don't know about Massachusetts), taxis aren't legally allowed to refuse fares, while there's no such restriction on Uber and similar companies. So when your flight doesn't get in 'til 2am and you live in a slightly sketchier neighborhood, but none of the Uber drivers are willing to take you there, the taxis need to still be available.
(I've even had trouble w/ getting the SuperShuttle to take me home from the airport -- they're perfectly willing to pick me up at 6am to go to BWI
Of course, there are likely still problems in many areas with taxi drivers passing by people of color who are trying to flag them down
I don't know, but there are at least three groups that forecast space weather --
NOAA SWPC gives the official reports to the public.
NASA CCMC also runs forecasting for stuff (and people) in space, as they're not protected by the magnetosphere.
USAF has a group that does it for the exact reason in the article
The CCMC used to announce their storm forecasts on twitter
Luckily, there are a fair number of groups that would complain if they tried to cut out the forecasting -- airlines use to to protect their crew from increased radiation (they avoid polar flights during storms), and power companies use it to determine if they need to take precautions. Communications companies use them to determine if they need to 'safe' their satellites. And NASA uses 'em both for their satellites, and to warn astronauts to take shelter.
They say this is "broadband" speeds, but broadband was redefined last year to require 25Mbps downloads.
So, someone could be sneaky and say 'oh, those 10 Mbps connections aren't broadband anymore', and you just drop out the lowest numbers, and miraculously the average goes up.
Schools were using this trick by keeping the poorly performing students from taking standardized testing to raise their test averages.
