Got that? What he’s saying is that Krasnow uses human skin to make flags made out of human skin because it is integral to the symbolism of making flags made out of human skin to make the flags out of human skin. Whew.
Stanhope: The internet has done nothing but good for comedy all around. Comedians no longer have to rely on TV execs and club owners deciding if they are funny or not. There’s the problem of piracy if you think it’s a problem. I credit piracy with getting my name known enough to have a decent career. People bootlegging shows on cellphones and putting material out before it’s finished is a problem for every comic, but compared to all the upsides of what the internet has done, it’s a fact of life that we’ll learn to adapt to even if it means finding these people and killing their families in front of them.
A hyphen implies that the “e” modifies, without being integral to the meaning of, the word “mail.” Email is a permanent and atomic concept; it’s not a contraction for “electronic mail.”
The feature itself is brief, as with so many magazine pieces, but there’s some exclusive bonus content here on the website: namely, a gallery of pictures from the filming of last season’s finale, based on a ridiculous game called The Quest of Ki.
Some Windows remixes are continual works in progress, with new editions showing up almost daily from the same “author,” who makes changes based on feedback from downloaders.
With color LCD screens getting cheaper by the minute, the difference in price between an MP3 player and a device that can also play videos will be small in a year or two. Besides, having an MP3 player that can play videos is icing on the cake (just like it doesn’t hurt to have a DVD player that also plays CDs). You can expect to see at least a dozen personal video players on the market by the middle of next year, if not sooner.
Stoup is riding a specially designed snow and ice bicycle that looks like a mountain bike with big, fat tractor tires. Built by Dan Hanebrink, an ex-aerospace engineer, the bike has no plastic parts, which would freeze and shatter like glass in Antarctica’s subzero weather.
Coincidentally, Craig Venter, president of Celera, was involved in that research, before the two had a public falling out.
Designers of ubiquitous computing systems envision seeding private and public places with sensors and transmitters, embedded in objects and hidden from view.
The Firefox browser supports an add-on that redirects seized domains. The browser’s maker, Mozilla, declined the government’s request to remove it.
The New York State Attorney General’s Office, which issued an advisory statement on CyberRebate, also offers scant encouragement. The agency advises customers to file a claim with the bankruptcy court, but notes that bankruptcy creditors frequently receive only a small portion of what they’re owed.
Facebook also recently added a Save feature which saves links for later. This is exclusive to posts with a link and it’s no good if you’re searching for something posted a few years back. But if you’re looking for an old link you don’t want to forget about, you could use search to find it, and then Save so it’s conveniently stored for later visits.
“Leaks are okay because they increase mystery,” he said. “No one knows for sure whether they’re accurate but it inflates the publicity machine. It’s a byproduct of implementing secrecy.”
Several readers complained that the changed code that resulted in the Soviet gas pipeline explosion wasn’t a bug at all, but perhaps a feature that had been intentionally inserted – a feature that apparently worked quite well. I disagree. Logic bugs are errors in program implementation or design that cause them to function in ways that are not wanted or not expected. If a program malfunctions, it ultimately doesn’t matter if the malfunction was the result of an intentional program alteration or a programmer who typed a period instead of a semicolon.
The message contained statements such as “no prophet should take prisoners until he kills many enemies” and “if you meet the infidels (in battle) deal blows at their necks. Let your attitude to the crusaders be as the line of poetry: There is no reproach between me and you except the stabbing of kidneys and the chopping of heads.”
But if advertisers can easily send video to the iPhone and viewers can view it without Flash, there will be more video fixes like this coming soon. While Apple is busy blocking Flash from the iPhone platform, small steps like GreyStripe’s could eventually bring another video platform to mobile devices.
In the second arc, Ends of the Earth, other myths are brought into the story as Diana ventures into a literal hell to retrieve the soul of the man who has none. She literally has to battle for her soul at the side of two ancient mythical heroes, Beowulf and Claw the Unconquered, an original character created for DC. Once again, Simone blended action, lesser-known elements of DC history, and some dark humor in a story that ended with Diana reclaiming her soul.
