An Improvement of XML

The implications of scalable theory have been far-reaching and pervasive. In fact, few end-users would disagree with the deployment of expert systems, which embodies the private principles of artificial intelligence. We explore new introspective configurations, which we call KindlerDop.–Shatner, Elmo, Jerz and Nye –An Improvement of XML (SciGen) Read the backstory behind this random CS paper generator. From Metafilter. Note the citations to articles by “Elmo, T. M.” in the bibliography.…

I Know How Much it Costs to Hear the Caged Bird Sing

“Just think about it,” I would tell them with as straight a face as I could muster, “next Tuesday the Royal Shakespeare Company will be on campus to give their rendition of King Lear.” I left time for that news to sink in, and then added: “I’m told that their production is absolutely world class.” Then I would thicken the plot by adding that this is not the only cultural…

The ship’s radio actually required two separate rooms, one for the receiver, and one for the transmitter, to…
