Re: Hell of an approximation!
For the purpose of the interferometry does the precise orbital radius matter? The relative position of the satellites is another matter of course.

It's the same with passwords, eg, I don't have a £ in a password, in case I end up having to try and logon to a machine with a US keyboard layout. (and yes, I have had that problem)
That won't be enough for a Turkish keyboard.... because the
I key is the dotless-
I key is elsewhere.
(And this forum does not support
kbd; :-( )
This isn't really novel. Rodents etc. have long been the cause of outages. Whether power or data networking.
To really mess things up you need a contractor with an auger: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-hampshire-61757877
PS, the above outage was five days, not a mere 8 hours.
< equivalent to the use of a large city eg Kilkenny
According to an unreliable source, in 2016 Kilkenny had a population under 27,000, I think you have a very odd definition of "large".
Unless your basis of a for city sizing is St. David's, which is a village with history.

But Web Apps do.
Who wants the distribution hassle of a local app when not needed? (This also applies to mobile: I suspect 90+% of mobile apps could be simpler as a PWA.)
That's what Free Software is about: each contributor puts in the effort needed for their own purposes and shares the result.
Nice theory. In practice this happens rarefy, and even less for transitive dependencies.
Much easier to raise an issue asking for a fix or extra functionality.
The article gets the dates wrong.
The actual message is from start of next year in line with the support of the OS: only Win8 loses support in Jan 2022 (as Win 8 iwent EoL Jan 2016);. Win7 & 8.1 continue until 2023-01-23.
That will have been a decade for Windows 7: how much support to you expect to get without further payment?
Re-trunk would imply there is a special trunk branch. but there isn't. In git all branches are equal. (Processes for humans might define some to be more special, but that is not part of git itself.)
I learnt git by just using git from the command line for a project I was starting, and just took the learning time. Having rather different terminology overall helped, because it reminded me the underlying conceptual model is different.
Also, spending time understanding that model really helped. a D-VCS is very different to a centralised one, trying to use git as if it were a centralised VCS is doomed to repeatedly being caught out by the differences.
PS. Barons Court (applying Mont's bypass, and you're in Nidd).
Yes. And it is a RPITA when I have to go back to that project.
One of these days (real soon now(rm)) I'kll get to complete the changes needed (large XML files don't work with merges) to transition to git, and make everyone's life easier.
git's model is complex, but it is a tool for developers who work with complex tools all the time.
> This wasn’t a toxic pressure cooker of working against one’s will.
Sounds like the author was so happy with the success t hat followed, they forgot that management pressure that lead to such a toxic environment.
Just the frog not noticing the temperature rise does not mean it wasn't rising.
"Only two divorces"... and how many almost divorces?
When you accept this work place culture and accept it because of some success for someone else, makes you part of the problem.
BBC Basic was rather more sophisticated with higher level support... and that was a thin wrapper around "OS" level operations, so usable without the Basic interpreter.
Hence various games later on having speech synthesis.

I deny the reality in which it is that long ago!
> 30% of the delta variant deaths in England last week were fully vaccinated people ( https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-57441677 )
You've miss-read the article.
- People without any vaccination
- People are partially vaccinated
- People who are fully vaccinated
If almost two thirds of people who... are in the first group, it does not follow the remainder are in the third. It was been widely stated that those in the second group have relatively little protection against delta, so likely most of the third remaining are in that group.
And remember maximum protection occurs 2–3 weeks after the second does.
VB5 and 6 did keep me busy for several years. By writing C++ to get around VB's very restricted subset of COM and using the much more powerful debugger to debug things that the VB6 debugger couldn't help with.
One of the latter cases was the first bug I used the internet to help solve... using Lynx (no GUI browser for me!) to find the offset of the reference count in VB6 UI components.
And thus work out which set of components were stuck with circular references (app worked fine in the VB6 IDE, but the built version would crash on exit every time).
> You pick the right typeface for the purpose.
That would mean people knowing the first thing about typography. Which clearly they don't. I suspect that 99% of all documents use whatever is`the default in the application used to initially create the document.
And this applies to every spreadsheet, presentation, etc. as well.
> 'e' in Bierstadt
And now cannot un-see... they're all compromised in one way or another so not an easy call to have only one.
I need to fine a long doc I need to read, and try different paragraphs in different options to check out readability at smaller sizes. As the default we'll end up see a lot of text top read in whatever the choice is.
