High-Temp Superconductors To Connect Power Grids

adamruck "Forward Looking Comment" (332 comments)

Found this on the bottom of the article

Any statements in this release about future expectations, plans and prospects for the company, including our expectations regarding the future financial performance of the company and other statements containing the words "believes," "anticipates," "plans," "expects," "will" and similar expressions, constitute forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. There are a number of important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those indicated by such forward-looking statements. Such factors include: we have a history of operating losses, and we may incur losses in the future; a significant portion of our revenues are derived from a single customer, and a reduction in business with this customer could adversely affect our operating results; adverse changes in domestic and global economic conditions could adversely affect our operating results; changes in exchange rates could adversely affect our results from operations; our common stock may experience extreme market price and volume fluctuations, which may prevent our stockholders from selling our common stock at a profit and could lead to costly litigation against us that could divert our management’s attention; if we fail to implement our business strategy, our financial performance and our growth could be materially and adversely affected; we may not realize all of the sales expected from our backlog of orders and contracts; many of our revenue opportunities are dependent upon subcontractors and other business collaborators, and a reduction in orders stemming from these companies could adversely affect our operating results; our products face intense competition, which could limit our ability to acquire or retain customers; our success is dependent upon attracting and retaining qualified personnel and our inability to do so could significantly damage our business and prospects; and our international operations are subject to risks that we do not face in the U.S., which could have an adverse effect on our operating results. Reference is made to these and other factors discussed in the "Risk Factors" section of the company's most recent quarterly or annual report filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission. In addition, any forward-looking statements included in this press release represent the company's views as of the date of this release. While the company anticipates that subsequent events and developments may cause the company's views to change, the company specifically disclaims any obligation to update these forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements should not be relied upon as representing the company's views as of any date subsequent to the date this press release is issued.

Warrantless GPS Tracking Is Legal, Says WI Court

adamruck Re:But... (594 comments)

I have no issue with the police tailing people by whatever means.

I have an issue with the police adding extra weight to my car without me knowing.
I have an issue with the police adding electrical equipment to my car without me knowing.
I have an issue with police adding radio equipment to my car without me knowing.

I have an issue with the police doing anything to my private property that I haven't approved of, and a judge hasn't approved of, ESPECIALLY since I don't even have to be a suspect.

(Useful) Stupid Regex Tricks?

adamruck When to use regular expressions (516 comments)

I'd just like to add my two cents in here. If you are writing a quick and dirty one time script, go nuts with your regex. If your writing something that is going to be used long term, please for the sake of the maintainers just use string functions.

It is a hell of a lot easier to redo one string function than redo a complete regex when the data format changes. Also if you use string functions you can actually do real error reporting when things don't work the way you expect them to.

Shuttleworth Says Canonical Is Not Cash-Flow Positive

adamruck Re:Really (304 comments)

Perhaps huge companies still use Redhat and Novell just for the name, however all of the linux sysadmins I know for smaller companies prefer ubuntu hands down.
