Geoengineered Climate Cooling With Microbubbles

wiredlogic Re:What percentage... (111 comments)

Shutting down air traffic after 9/11 had a measurable impact on weather over CONUS from the lack of contrails in the sky. It isn't unfathomable that ships can also have a measurable level of impact.

Surely there is a technological fix for this?

wiredlogic Re:Yawn (54 comments)

What well-known dynamic scripting language should it have embedded instead?

You've got Tcl, purpose built for embedding, Jim, lightweight clone of Tcl, Python, Perl, and Ruby. All mature scripting languages that would do the job with 0-based arrays.

Canada Waives Own Rules, Helps Microsoft Avoid US Visa Problems

wiredlogic Re:Fucking Hell, Harper needs to go! (122 comments)

MS might be using it as a way to weasle around HB-1 requirements (people getting foreign subsidary experience to get around limits)

That's exactly what it is. There's no point in sugar coating it with the presumption of that they're trying to help out the little guy. This is all part of the orchestrated plan by the elites to create an oversupply of labor with foreign workers and drive wages down. Their proximity to Vancouver makes this a slam dunk for Microsoft. Why sink money into lobbying for more H1Bs when L1Bs are unlimited and NAFTA greases the bureaucratic wheels.
