Would have thought in the age of video games and first-person-shooters this would be a non-issue .... even more so figured they would need to beat them away with a stick ....
Being a drone pilot (if you're flying a drone used to deploy weapons) is about the most unhappy profession imaginable. You carry the weight of knowing you are responsible for killing people, but you're doing it from a darkened room halfway around the world while looking at a screen, relying...

Sounds like it is something that should get a good tool written. Not enough time for me to do it right now, sadly.

Live in the Lehigh Valley??? Looking for a way to get to Makerfaire ?? Consider this ....
Do you live in the Lehigh Valley? Do you want to go to Maker Faire in New York City? Of course you do. It's one of the best events you can ever go to. See a person walking around in a cardboard dinosaur. Check out some awesome new inventions from other hobbyists around the world. See the life size game of mouse trap. Have fun with awesome crafts and tech for all ages. ;Come along with Make Lehigh Valley on a bus trip to World Maker Faire in New Y...

I've been using PIA with Google Fiber and the bandwidth across the world is amazing.  It's always been reliable.

New Horizons data currently being received by the Deep Space Network (DSN) Canberra antenna (DSS 43 - 70 Meter Dish)  

New Horizons download is in the X-Band at 8.41 GHz with a ~500 bit per second data rate and a received power of 3x10E-24 Watts .... that's -250dBm ....

I'm struggling to find a reference point for THAT SMALL of a number .... the best I can do is ... that's about one billionth (10E-12) of the signal that makes it to your car's GPS receiver .... at a rate comparable to a 1970s era 300 baud modem.

Consider also .... we're still receiving data from the Voyager probes VGR1 is 18 light hours from Earth .... or about 5 times the distance of New Horizons ... The path-loss there is looking like -316db .... about 40 times greater that New Horizons currently. Also power output on the transmitter probably isn't what it used to be ... the RTG is somewhat depleted .... Even Plutonium generators don't last forever.

Different narratives but the story's the same.

Yeah, the concept of "saving a life" is weird too. At best you can prolong life, sometimes at great cost - both financially and with medical consequences. Rarely does someone in the medical field mention the cognitive impacts of "life saving" treatment.

Death is an inevitable consequence of life, like going to the bathroom is a consequence of eating. Enjoy the time you have, and hope you have the option to die peacefully. That's about as good as it gets.

Chris Urmson: How a driverless car sees the road http://www.ted.com/talks/chris_urmson_how_a_driverless_car_sees_the_road
Statistically, the least reliable part of the car is ... the driver. Chris Urmson heads up Google's driverless car program, one of several efforts to remove humans from the driver's seat. He talks about where his program is right now, and shares fascinating footage that shows how the car sees the road and makes autonomous decisions about what to do next.

It's amazing how far they've come in such a short amount of time.

Excellent food and environment. This is not your typical chain Mexican ... They serve grown up food ... No burritos here! We lucked out getting seated on a Saturday night ... They recommend reservations.
