5 Philosophers do nothing but eat and think.
They have a table with 5 chairs, 5 plates and 5 forks.
Each of them eats with two forks.
Ensure that none of them starves.
First I teach them to always take the left fork first.
Then I smash one of their chairs.
Since they can't repair the chair (they think, but they don't build), there are only 4 places left, and so they have one leftover fork which gets passed on, once one finished eating.
Inspired by Willim Stallings' Operating systems: "Use a servant who lets only 4 dine at the same time"
Naturally now they have to either change places or move chairs, so they might still need a servant :)
The European Copyright directive threatens online communication in Europe.
But thanks to massive shared action earlier this year, the European parliament can still prevent the problems. For each of the articles there are proposals which fix them. The parliamentarians (MEPs) just have to vote for them. And since they are under massive pressure from large media companies, that went as far as defaming those who took action as fake people, the MEPs need to hear your voice to know that your are real.
If you care about the future of the Internet in the EU, please Call your MEPs.
