>Less space than a Nomad
In all fairness, I rarely need to control more than one starship in battle at a time with my phone, so a fraction of Nomad's space works fine . . .
> But the 1st amendment is not a law in that respect
Yes, it is, as applied through the 14th, as are all other parts of the Bill of Rights "fundamental to the concept of ordered liberty." [*]
[*] And the establishment clause, which is applied, well, whenever a court feels like it . . .

Uhm, isn't that that Matthew Broderick is for?
Although I think he's finally ready to play college students instead of high school . . .
Mrs. Doubtfire would have been *really* weird with an actress in the title role . . .
>it's awfully hard to get consent from the dead.
Only if you go to cut-rate necromancers. The good ones are more expensive, but worth it . . .
Many years ago there was a proposal for the "Tux Virus."
The notion was that it would download a linux distribution with FVWM95 as the window manager, use Wine for the windows binaries, and probably include OpenOffice.
Some even deluded themselves that it would take the victim a while to notice.
Fortunately, those that had the actual ability to do this (that is, to come as close as possible; it's not like Wine was up to running random binaries) had better things to do, or had been taught better by their mothers.
Unfortunately, that was not the case for vigor, which actually got implemented . . .
>One is never too old to play with toys
Exactly. They just change over time.
A couple of weeks ago, I got a pneumatic nail gun to put sheeting on the hothouse in my back yard. mmm.
Yesterday, I got the fuel tank back onto my '72 Cadillac Convertible.
Today, I was going to put a new water pump and fan clutch onto that '72, but I bought my wife a mustang convertible, so it's going to be a week or two.
We just get to buy more expensive toys as we get older . . .
To the point that there were two 12k variants of the Apple ][.
One had 12k contiguous memory; the other had a gap so that you could use the hires graphics.
If you built your own plugs, you could power off and switch between the two. (there was a dip socket for each of the three banks which hard-wired the bank to it's memory address).
And then 16k chipsets dropped to $100, and everyone had 48k . . .
more often, the able solution is to not crash in the first place . . .
My 1984 mac 128k still works, albeit with 512k now.
My 1991 Macintosh Potable would work if I replaced some capacitors.
I think I bought the MacClassic in 1991, and it still works.
My 1994 Powerbook 180 would work if I put the pieces back together; it's a victim of the IBM 2.5" scsi drives and their near-100% failure rate.
For that matter, I have a '95 or so thinkpad I bought used that would work if I fixed broken wires in the power supply cable, to say nothing of my working 1987 Tandy 102 . . .
And none of these have any influence on what my next machine will be. (most likely, replacing the HD with SSD on my 2012 iMac)
If he filmed any sex acts with a 17 year old, he's done. Even if he didn't film them, kindly locate for me a jury who will provide anything less than the maximum available penalties as soon as the words "minor child", "fraud", "sex", and "rape" are uttered together.
"between the ages of 17 and..."
Thanks for playing: go directly to jail. Goodbye!
It reacted when there were "obvious" signs of trouble, and it didn't "predict" anything. The 2nd car in front was slowing fast enough that the Tesla would have started to brake on its own -- just as happened here. Would a person have noticed and reacted in the same way? Maybe; probably not. What I'm saying here isn't dismissing what the Tesla did...but the Tesla also didn't "predict" anything or see into the future; it reacted to inputs that were already present, and a good and attentive human driver might have done the same thing. Once perfected, self-driving cars and accident avoidance technology will make the roads safer â" but let's not make them seem magical, because they aren't.
But without MUFFIN, how are we supposed to load 13 sector disks on our Apple ][?
Uhm, I think I just dated myself.
Err, get off my lawn!
