How safe are cyclists? It's bad enough already with drivers zooming past far too close, or trying to overtake me but underestimating my speed (UK legal ebike, 250W, 15mph max cut off speed, no throttle), and ending up close to crashing into bollards or oncoming traffic. Do these systems recognise cylcists and more importantly, will they make room?
Yep, I think you're right re: graphics drivers - that machine has an old ATI 5450, browser runs like a fat sausage along a sidewalk in the snow.
If some sort of Linux mafia could wave as much cash in vendor's faces as Microsoft does, Linux would be rapidly improved on the desktop... but that'll never happen. Too many flavours and factions.
Adobe needs to join the Haiku party. It'd be impressive if they managed to with four lines of code.
Linux Mint Cinnamon was fast on first boot, glacial after a week and then I lost my mind yelled "FSUCKING LINUX BLOATWARE!!!" at it and went back to XP.
Too many Linux fanboys here... It's great for databases.
I use Firefox 52 (Core2Quad 9400) runs fine for most websites, and it runs all of my old sound programs and devices better than my Win 7 Pro i7 4790 does. XP also flies for DTP; it's firewalled and port blocked to hell. Mint a few months ago with Cinnamon was just too damn slow starting up, the browser was bloody slow, too damn slow overall. And not terribly useful, despite the huge choice of programs, most are rubbish.
Mushrooms are great whole - throw them into a pan with about half a cup of boiling water and a bit o salt, boil at as high a heat as possible, covered, for about two minutes (there should be clouds of steam venting at high pressure from under or through the lid), then uncover, add a knob of butter and reduce to fry brown while stirring. Awesome. What starts as a large mass of whole mushrooms, becomes delicious miniatures. Thank you Malliard.
I wouldn't mind but for the fact that they're burning up oodles of oxygen and polluting my air, much more once their "Space" ventures really take off... which wouldn't be all that bad if they were actually doing something useful, which they're not, it's merely brief tourism and a stupid waste of resources.
Youtube is the last place anyone should post original music - it gets ripped off. I make original jingles, after a hard day's soul death working in IT... and one of my tunes, my sequence of 12 notes featured on Ridley Scott's "Raised By Wolves", Episode 5 - between 9m 53s and 10.25s. As the notes rolled out, I became more and more incredulous - I knew what note was coming next, note after note, and it didn't stop... my music continued playing at me from a TV show. It was simply sampled and stretched out to occupy more time, without altering pitch, but those are my notes in sequence and my unique instrument. So I've stopped posting new material on Youtube. Fcuking annoying. I left some narked off messages on an answering machine, because after I sent an email to Ridley Scott, his website went offline. It's too expensive to do anything about.
I'm sick of waiting for fusion, thorium reactors please - plentiful, reactors are cleaner, they can't easily be weaponised. India seems to be the only country interested in developing this technology and I for one am thoroughly pissed off that VCs are chasing shiny looking fatuous fusion dreams instead - it's ever 10 years away and has been for decades. Frickin thorium already!
A fight with China means a squabble at the very least, with Russia, There's no mention in the article about Russia, who could jam nearly all of the sky just by themselves - China has been steadily buying up important strategic assets all over Africa and Asia, including many ports. Between them, the can jam the whole sky.
