I'm glad you've recovered so quickly from Milo's downfall.

I remember playing a SciFi tabletop roleplaying game years ago that had a world generation system, and that one suggested that a tidally-locked world could have a "habitable zone" along the terminator, where temperatures were relatively moderate. I don't know how reasonable that is, since I would imagine that having half the planet's atmosphere at one temperature extreme and the other half at another could lead to some pretty extraordinary heat exchange, in the form of pretty brutal storms.
Not fictional. That's an Apple ImageWriter.
I thought it looked familiar. But they didn't call it an ImageWriter, did they? I only skimmed the video.
I wonder if, being close to their star, gravitational interactions between the planets and between them and the star could lead to the necessary "churning" of at least some of their cores to produce a strong magnetic field.
If they name them after Donald Trump and his family members, NASA will probably get a trillion dollars a year.
Finding that many Earth-sized rocky bodies orbiting a star just 39 lightyears away, with the possibility that some of them may be able to have liquid water on their surface doesn't excite you? Did you have your sense of wonder and curiosity surgically removed?
I think that greatly depends. Without a strong magnetic field, the Earth would look a lot like Mars, with much of its ancient primordial atmosphere blown away. I can imagine if one or more of those planets do indeed have a strong magnetic field, then I don't see how it is improbable that they could not harbor life. At the moment, we can't even declare with a high degree of assurance that Mars does not host life.
Well yes, much in the same way one infers the presence of a stream of electrons from an electrical charge or the Big Bang from the CMBR, relative proportions of hydrogen, helium and lithium in the Universe and the red-shift of distant galaxies. Even a particle accelerator like the LHC at CERN does not in fact directly image subatomic particles. For chrissakes, what you "see" isn't a raw image, but is heavily processed by your nervous system, beginning right at the retina itself, then by the optic nerve and then by visual centers in the brain. In other words, what you "see" isn't actually the photons that the physical structures of the eye captures.
Lots of science is inference, seeing as many phenomenon cannot be directly observed. If you're saying inference is somehow questionable, then you're basically calling all form of observation questionable.
Scientists have discovered what looks the best place so far where life as we know it may exist outside our own solar system. Seven Earth-sized planets, all of which could contain water, have been found orbiting a small star 39 light-years away. "We have made a crucial step toward finding if there is life out there," said Amaury Triaud, co-author of the study. "I don't think any time before we had the right planets to discover and find out if there was.
Remember when HP could compare their products to the actual competition (from the same era, no less) and come out looking... competitive? They have to compare their printer to a fictional dot matrix (what was that actually, anyway?) in order to make it look like something you'd want to buy?
I really should have gone into advertising.
There is an expectation that you are not being monitored by the police state, up until this point. Technology is invasive the moment it becomes pervasive. I have no ability to OPT out of state surveillance, and the state has no expectation that they can monitor me without a court order. I would consider this a violation of 4th Amendment "Unreasonable" search
I guess one could possibly integrate into some sort of home filesharing appliance, although my limited experience with this kind of hardware suggests they already have their own variations on this. Perhaps not quite the same level of security, but I fail to see why that would matter that much in a home setting. I guess someone could build an cloud app with it, but then again, there are already lots of those around.
All News is fake depending on who is reporting and who is the reader/viewer.
Kind of like "Planned Parenthood doesn't use public funding for abortion services". Technically "accurate", but really not even close to being accurate.
A woman comes in for an abortion, but gets six other "tests" and diagnostics done. Pregancy test, Pap smear
Technically it is "true" that PP doesn't use federal dollars for "abortion". Realistically it is fully subsidized procedure using loopholes. Both sides are considered "alternative facts" by the other side. And the reason we can't have civil discourse about anything any more.
And watch this get modded "Troll" since I used the inflammatory "Planned Parenthood / Abortion" example by people who can't actually debate the actual topic.
There are several issues with most systems that require certificates to work correctly.
1) Certificates Expire, on a regular basis, have a plan to update them (Auto renew)
2) Notifications should be sent to a "group" email address, not an individual.
3) We have these things called "Calendars" use them
4) Documentation is key, even if 1-3 fail you should have a searchable document that has they dates listed for key events.
The problem is, nobody ever documents shit like this, because actual documentation process takes more time than actually doing the Cert updates.Except when you measure the failure to renew it in time.
Considering the enterprise use of GMail, no, it's not going anywhere. But way to exaggerate. Welcome to the Newest Epoch of Humanity, where, if you can't make an argument well, you can at least make it hyperbolically, which is the same thing, right?
In a consumer society there are inevitably two kinds of slaves: the prisoners of addiction and the prisoners of envy.
