...then you don't know enough about programming http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/D... . For your own sake and sense of satisfaction I suggest you pick a new hobby or allow yourself some time (>10 years) to fully get acquainted with the subject.
> syncing with services like Google Drive can be a P.I.T.A.
Well, the desktop client let's you sync as a background process (it even runs as a service so you don't need to start it up manually).
Works like a charm and is very easy to set up IMHO. It also let's you manage the file permissions in a very clear way.
What I *do* find a P.I.T.A. is manually installing and configuring Apache / FTP on my local home computer and making sure it's not going to be a security vulnerability...
Instead of hosting a server at home you could upload it to a cloud storage service like Google Drive or something.
and BS is what I think of patents
But dude, the micro compressor operates through micro battery! Seems legit.
Sure, so I can see their stuf but I never look anyway. At least nobody sees my stuff.
I know a better way of solving this: I have nobody in my circles
Yeah, we don't need no stinking badges
So they're trying to fix the problem of the processing time doubling with each patch, by trying out solutions in separately installed patches. You have to appreciate the irony of that!
Sounds like this is wonderful news for you guys. You both have clients that are loaded with money, and who desperately need Glassfish support for their production environment.
And now Oracle stops offering support? Dude, this is the best business opportunity you'll get in your life. Quit whatever you're doing and start offering Glassfish support yourself. If it's really that big a deal, companies will be all over you.
Ever since I started doing web design for a living in 1998, I hated this crazy situation where one has to take into account all quibbles and arguments the software industry has internally and make up for it in your code. Now we are 15 years down the road, I've moved on to greener pastures, but I see the poor sods in web development are still stuck with the tantrums of yesteryear.
You're also not supposed to have security compromising settings activated by default, when you manufacture a software product. You know that there will always be people who run it in production straight out of the box.
Here in Europe, ATMs are constantly being targeted by Romanian criminals. Not because Romanians are particularly bad people, but because the manufacturing plant that built the ATMs is located there. These people are robbing the cash machines they built themselves a couples of months earlier. The people who know how to hack them sell this information and complete toolkits on a thriving black market.
So, yes, it does require additional resources and skills to bypass sophisticated technology. But don't underestimate the number of people that still are within relatively easy reach of those resources and skills. The more complex a technology is, the more people you need to build it in the first place. And there's always a bunch of them that don't mind "dropping" a can of spray marker in the distribution parking lot for the right price.
Hmm, I still prefer money and bullshit
You can't print ammunition
