Why would they need to do that. I don't hear the atheists insisting on working on Christmas and Easter so the Republicans probably will just enjoy the day off while they drink themselves silly and continue to forget their history.
Cause Strayans won't give up a perfectly good, paid to have off day of no work for no-one.
"I controlled my laughter and simple said "No,I am very busy,so I can't write any code for you". The moment they heard this all the smiling face turned into a sad looking face and one of them farted. So I had to leave the place as soon as possible." - Mr.Prakash One Fine Saturday. 24/04/2004
The project I am working on appears to be a cluster in potential. The software group are busy in their ivory tower talking about recipes, the Hardware group in theirs ivory tower designing something, the drawing office yup you guessed it. I am in the test dept and am supposed to write tests for the 'thing' but until Software talk to Hardware (I can see problems, as software are seeming to use a processor with not enough pins to meet spec version A). The specification has been updated but not written as those who can will not sign off on it until they actually have something to sign, no one can get anyone to agree on anything! Ahhh I'm in Dilbert Heck!!
With software group approval, yes.
You need to know that the processor has languages / compilers / libraries for what the software bods are going to do with it.
I'm OK with software requesting a processor family, and maybe a minimum spec, but hardware have to integrate it with all the other doodads to make the thing work (and know what packages they can cope with), so they will select the actual processor.

Bad command or file name. Bad, bad command! Sit! Stay! Staaaay...

A configurable emulator of the processor they will be using. It may also be safe to assume that there will be some memory. Enough to start developing and then you add to and improve the configuration as the specs come rolling in. Of course that's all just gray theory if you don't have any emulator at all.
I have lived with several Zen masters - all of them were cats.
His last invention was an evil Lasagna. It didn't kill anyone, and it actually tasted pretty good.
I'm pretty sure I would not like to live in a world in which I would never be offended.
I am absolutely certain I don't want to live in a world in which you would never be offended.
