Not having spring break is discrimination against Jews!
(Note that I'm not Jewish.)
An education system (at least here in the US) which does not have a spring break spanning Passover is potentially putting itself in danger of a discrimination lawsuit for failing to accommodate Jewish students, especially if there is a strict attendance requirement that does not allow for Passover absences.
In fact, simply having classes during Passover means that non-Jews get more classroom time which cannot easily be compensated for by make-up work. That alone can lead to a lawsuit.
@DragonLord all that paranormal stuff (much of it pure crap too :-) is being classed as Sci_fi , simply because there is not a "paranormal" or "spiritual bs" classifications being used in the tv and movie industry stuff. So much literally NOT Science fiction, is classed that way. Add to that much actual SCi-Fi space junk and and all some authors/writers toss in paranormal and spirit stuff be it starTrek Twilightzone OutterLimits stargate azimov and everything that the site does cover.
Therefore while it might not be actual science(IMO) It certannly has made a large presence In sc-fi stories , movies, series, and by mere movie classification is.
Not only that but "fantasy" :-) is also part of the name of that place, so where the heck else did they think it belonged?
Why some people find such a need to kick people in the head , are they always having a bad day? Goes back (again) to what JMG said, better be having fun with it, because having (stupidass) issues with everything does not help anyone.
What is most hilarious about clones is , for example a US (cheapskate) designer will have saved 50cents having it made in china, pouring huge profits . . . . ooops you just handed the whole design specs to the factory, they sell it direct, and your lasy company pawning off the work to cheaper labor , just lost all the money you were going to make. The greed of stupidity.
After about the 50th time of having china sell your product for 1/4th the price , which included the 100% profit you were going to make, you'd think your head would pop out of your ass , and one more idea would exist :-)
Unfortunately, it really depends on the specifics of the implementation of both the hub and device.
Now, the vast majority of simple hubs don't really implement any sort of power control. They'll just connect the USB power lines directly to either their host or an external (regulated) power supp...
I had a weird dream that I posted a very funny but incendiary and offensive comment in chat and it IMMEDIATELY got 5 stars, then pinned, and not 30 minutes later some upset user who lurks in chat but never says anything posted a meta Q how he was so fed up with the de facto regime in chat always being so offensive, and his post got 916 upvotes... lol
@Bob I have a Windows 7 Pro workstation and a laptop+dock with Windows 8. I'd like a setup where I can use my laptop docked in via some kind of remote desktop, to basically have a faster machine locally.
I know it might sound confusing. I'd just like to sort of "unify" the desktop and the laptop when the laptop is plugged in the dock
I sync most of my data via GDrive and GitHub, but I was wondering if there's some sort of Enterprise-ish solution to do it via local network faster
I don't think there's anything it's really good at
> With Windows 8, Microsoft is finally adding what’s now called “user experience virtualization” features to its desktop operating system, providing ways to sync various things between different PCs, providing a consistent and familiar environment on each.
lemme give you an example. I have ~100gb of music. I need it available on multiple systems. I want backups. That in itself is two problems. For availability on multiple systems, I have it on a samba share. For backups, I have it on two systems - my desktop, with a 3tb disk, and my NUC, with a 1tb disk
