What if they redesigned the subway to be a bunch of self driving cars? basically have the stop be a lineup of cars that you get into on demand like a taxi and have each stop have a bypass so if your small car didn't need to stop there you could move on unimpeded.
An average of 16 billion a year for 50 years is different than the sum total of 800 billion which is meant to shock people.
How much has war cost our country and left us with little benefit. we spend almost the entire historical budget for NASA in one year at war.
Maybe NASA is not as useful anymore? I don't know. Maybe the money would be better spent making our country less dependent on oil? Well, actually, one of the spinoff technologies was the solar cell so it seems to be helping to that aim. Who knows what the next thing NASA does that improves humanity as a whole will be?
What happens if the reader is an EMV one but the fake bank card looks like it has a chip and it was swiped instead of using the chip? I have a debit card with the chip but I can still swipe it at the hybrid terminals. Who owns liability in that case?
Once I used my chip cards in a reader in the US, and was told, "this is a chip card, please insert it into the bottom" so there's definitely a bit that can be set in the magstripe to tell the PoS that a chip should be available in case you clone just the magstripe.
ruby nil is similar in that it's an instance of the Nil class. though, calling a method on nil that isn't there is a common error.
I like how swift handles things. strong type system that makes it a little painful to do things unsafely. guarantees some things that make it a powerful and more safe language than objective c. I think they lost a few dynamic patterns though in the transition but that's just what i recall from a blog post and the details of it are a little fuzzy.
There is a reason why in Lisp the type of NIL is NULL and not NIL. NIL does in fact name a type also. That is different from the NULL type/class.
NULL has one instance, the object NIL. NULL isn't derived from anything; its superclass is the master superclass T.
The NIL type has an empty domain: no object is of the NIL type. (Somewhat like in C and C++, no object is of the void type, for those who like pointless C and C++ analogies that don't lead anywhere.) Furthermore, the NIL type is a subtype of every other type, the same way that T is a supertype of every other type. That is to say, every type is implicitly a supertype of nil. This goes hand in hand with the fact that the set of instances of any type is a superset of the empty set. E.g. set of integers (a type) has an empty subset (every set does), and that empty subset can be identified as the NIL type, whose domain is the empty set.
So, he gets enough to live a luxurious life a couple dozen times over. They get part of a house in a non-expensive city. Sure, they aren't entitled to anything, but Im not surprised people feel like that's rude.
Sorta like how employees resent not getting bonuses while the partners get millions.
if you haven't tried it... mailmate is pretty great at being an extremely powerful email client with fast searching and power user features. not as pretty as this one and doesn't have some of the extra workflow enhancements that this has(like hiding automated emails, etc...) but it's worth the money.
Interesting... It's like the Fox News of Wikipedia. People are going to get information from sources that semi align with their worldview. I really like Wikipedia because it's neutral in tone for the most part.
for those interested in an even more lightweight version of this and have zsh open all the time, I wrote a small zsh function that has proven to be invaluable. basically all you do is type mm <tab> and then it lists all your files inside the personal "man" folder inside your home directory. basically ~/man/manpages/filename and you can create files easily that was too. by just typing `mm newfilename` and it will open up vi to that new file. no server at all and it works just dandy for notes and the like.
I can't edit it anymore but you need to edit your .zshrc file and put that in there. It's probably pretty basic but I thought I should say it. also, this is a good script to show as a template if you wanted to add your own basic tab completion to zsh.
