Could be a Franking Machine where the costs are being covered by a benefactor?

How do you know they didn't get those stamps donated to them so they could do this for people?

The stamp is not an actual stamp, but an imprint stating the price as well.

Yes, but how do you know those costs are not being covered by a Third Party?

57  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Authorities suspect a shark tried to eat Vietnam's Internet on: January 10, 2015, 03:26:12 AM

Over the past few months, ruptures have been appearing in the submerged Asia-America Gateway (AAG) cable system that supplies a great deal of Southeast Asia with its Internet. This week, a hole appeared that was so severe, it throttled connections in Vietnam, causing millions of its residents to deal with Internet that was either incredibly slow, or frustratingly sporadic.

The rupture was located on the S1H section of the AAG, located off the coast of Ba Ria, in Vietnam’s coastal city of Vung Tau. Accordion to Martin Anderson at The Stack, this particular connection is one of just five pipes that supply Vietnam’s almost 93 million people with internet. "Other recent breakages in the 12,000 mile (20,000 km) trans-Pacific cable have been responsible for similar network blackouts or slow-downs in Asian locations including Hong Kong, the Philippines, Brunei, Singapore and Thailand, as well as Vietnam, in one case requiring 20 days to repair,” he says.

 
Completed in 2009, the AAG has been experiencing a few too many tears of late to be waved away as an accident. Last September, another rupture was found in the cable about 68 km off the coast of Hong Kong, which followed a similar tear that occurred two weeks earlier.

But it wasn’t foul play, well, not as we know it. “AAG’s trans-Pacific enemy is thought by some to be the dangerous but fairly apolitical shark, attracted by the electromagnetic field that the cable generates,” says Anderson, “and inspiring Google to shield its own Pacific cabling with ‘bullet-proof vest’ material Kevlar.”

You can see one of the apolitical sharks in question in the video footage above, filmed late last year. Is it just me, or does that cable suddenly look delicious the moment the shark takes a good ol' chomp at it? It's a real worry when you look at a shark and get meal envy.

How do you know they didn't get those stamps donated to them so they could do this for people?  Seeing as the cost of paper is tiny, that would reduce the cost of them sending you this thank-you to about $0.005 (half a cent).....

I really don't get it. Why sell the site at all if you still want control over what happens to it? Once you've sold it, it's no longer your baby. Let it go.

Not to mention that I supposed it's possible that the new owner could sue Marko for disparaging him or for encouraging people to give it a poor rating when there's no evidence that it's being (or going to be) used for a scam.

It's too early to tell, and (for me at least) the site is small enough for it to be negligible even if the reports are to be the truth.

From what has been said so far, this looks far too strange to be true, and seeing as he still has full control of the site and it's functions...if it has been proven (by whatever evidence he may have), then why can he simply not return the money and dispute the sale...He certainly seems to be "bothered" about it enough to basically push people as far away from the website as possible...so...take that in whatever form you want to take it.

Free textbooks (aka open textbooks) written by knowledgable scholars are a relatively new phenomenon. Below, find a meta list of 200 Free Textbooks, and check back often for new additions.

Some pretty cool stuff on here on a plethora of topics!

Please be aware that FreewareBB has been sold and unfortunately it appears the intentions of the new owners are extremely devious and they intend on potentially using the good name of the site to trick and scam people. If you have any questions or concerns, please address them here because the site itself will likely be taken offline shortly. I can only apologise for any inconvenience caused but I never imaged the site being used in this way. Regards, Marko

Hey guys,

Just thought I would start up a thread which focuses on Text Book/Research Book, Trade, Sale & Giveaways.  Basically, this will be a section where people can trade or sell, or give people books focused on specific study topics (Because, these things are stupidly expensive if bought from Amazon and places like that!!)

I will get started with the ones I am looking for:


  • Brown, A. (1995) Organisational Culture, London, Pitman.
  • Crace, J. (2000) ‘Feel at home with a job abroad’, Guardian, 14 October.
  • Drennan, D. (1992) Transforming Company Culture, London, McGraw Hill.
  • Hofstede, G. (1980) Culture's Consequences: International Differences in Work Related Values, London, Sage.
  • Morgan, G. (1986) Images of Organization, Beverly Hills, CA, Sage.
  • Schwartz, H. and Davis, S. (1981) ‘Matching corporate culture and business strategy’, Organizational Dynamics, Summer
  • Trice, H. M. and Beyer, J. M. (1984) ‘Studying organizational cultures through rites and rituals’, Academy of Management Review, Vol. 9

If anybody has the above books and want to sell or give away, then please let me know! cheesy

If anybody has other requests or has something to sell/give away, then post them in this thread! cheesy

Those are some awesome panoramas. And what an epic journey! Is that a single sailing excursion?

That was a 6 week Perth (Australia) to Harwich (England) via Mauritius, Reunion, Sth Africa (Durban, Mossel Bay, Capetown), Namibia, St Helena, Ascension (no landing, too rough), Cape Verde, Canary Islands, Portugal, and France.  Most stops were 4-8 hours as it was a repositioning cruise, (which also means it was cheap smiley ).

Followed by 5 months in Devon (England).

For anyone who watched War Horse, this is the ruin they used for the homestead in its original condition.
 (see attachment in previous post)

Harwich is very close to where I am moving!

Introduction
In this article, I will explain the implementation of an Open Source lightweight framework (named Simple Client Server Library (SCS)) that is developed to create client/server applications using a simple Remote Method Invocation mechanism over TCP/IP. It is a highly scalable and robust framework that is entirely developed in C# and .NET Framework 4.0 (You can take a look at the performance of the SCS framework section of this article).

This is the second article about SCS and explains how I implemented it. To learn what SCS is and how to use it, please see the first article at the link below. There are running sample applications upon SCS in the first article. I suggest you to take a look at the first article before reading this one:

Part I: A Complete TCP Server/Client Communication and RMI Framework - Usage

Very VERY good implementation!  Works like an absolute charm!!

Tonight there has been some unusual activity taking place and I have now lost control of all servers under the ISP and my account has been suspended. Having reviewed the last available information of the sensors, the chassis of the servers was opened and an unknown USB device was plugged in only 30-60 seconds before the connection was broken. From experience I know this trend of activity is similar to the protocol of sophisticated law enforcement who carry out a search and seizure of running servers.

There are 57 Cody's there. I'll let the rest of y'all debate the significance of that. : )



Fifty-seven is the sixteenth discrete semiprime and the sixth in the (3.q) family. With 58 it forms the fourth discrete bi-prime pair. 57 has an aliquot sum of 23 and is the first composite member of the 23-aliquot tree. Although 57 is not prime, it is jokingly known as the "Grothendieck prime" after a story in which Grothendieck supposedly gave it as an example of a particular prime number. This story is repeated in Part 2 of a biographical article on Grothendieck in Notices of the American Mathematical Society.

As a semiprime, 57 is a Blum integer since its two prime factors are both Gaussian primes.

57 is a 20-gonal number. It is a Leyland number since 25 + 52 = 57.

57 is a repdigit in base 7 (111).



So...Yeah...Half Life 3 Confirmed.

Mouser,

It really is a pleasure and a privilege to be a part of this amazing community!  Some fantastic people here and the internet would be a boring place without the #DonationCoder IRC!

It has been a really difficult year in my household and it is wonderful to know that the people here are so supportive!

Couldn't imagine a world without DC and the people that call this home!
