Good. When you have some hairy kernel module that hasn't been touched in a long time, and has security holes because nobody's willing to change it, sometimes you just need something better.
> lots of great software that a lot of people simply do not like.
Yeah and I am really famous but a lot of people don't know that.
I am also a fantastic cook but many people don't the taste of my cooking.
But you sound like an idiot, you judge a product on its technical merits, not whether it has any use or value. Your the kind of idiot who would implement an idea because it sounds noble and fuck whether it has actually does anything useful.
Use a SSH or VNC server, and also use a dynamic DNS client so you have a hostname instead of some random IP address, Then you can control the machine directly when it's online. VNC might be really slow over dialup though, you'd need to use Tight encoding with JPEG quality cranked all the way down to make it usable at all.
I usually end up tunneling VNC over SSH, and the VNC server only allows connections through the tunnel.
I think smartwatches need a tiny joypad that can be clicked in as an extra button, kind of like old cell phones had. This would greatly expand the potential for video games, since you can't do much on a tiny touchscreen.
You mean the company that had widespread child abuse in its building for decades and everyone looked the other way? That BBC?
Since the idea is that this universe is a simulation, who says it is a simulation of reality? Maybe we are some kids crazy fantasy world in which the container has to be larger then its contents! FREAKY!
The trick to thinking outside the box, is to stop thinking the box is real.
IF this is a simulated world, there is no reason to assume the rules in the simulation are the same as the ones of the world in which the simulation is running.
Windows 8 basically handed Linux an opportunity on a silver platter. Now they just need to make the desktop significantly better than what Microsoft is currently offering.
Probably the $5 wrench solution to unlock the phone.
If nothing else, making documentation ensures that you get to check that your features are sane and make sense. Nothing like documenting something then realizing how stupidly it was written, then you can fix it so the documentation can be simpler.
If I can power my laptop and get a network connection (powerline ethernet) over the same cable, that would be really sweet.
Honestly, this is not really commonplace, at least not on the PC platform (no idea about console). There is only a handful of games I seen that sold cheatey DLC's (and with cheatey, I'm thinking of godmode esque cheats). Where does the idea that it's common came from, rose tinted nostalgia glasses?
Cheat codes are a bit less common sure, at least game specfic ones. Some games still got a dev console you can use, but it's usually engine rather than game-specfic cheats.
"Cast it into the fire! Destroy it!"
And he kept the corrupt political system of big money. It should have ended that day, but evil was allowed to endure. There's no strength left in the world of Men. They're scattered, divided, leaderless.
My salary has been steadily increasing and I certainly haven't found that there are skilled developers sitting idle at home. I can collect a small fortune in placement fees, if only I know some out-of-work developers I wouldn't be ashamed to recommend.
The simple fact from where I am standing is: There is a lot of work and there are not enough skilled people to do it yet we are only using 50% of the population.
But the sector has a massive negative image. Not even so much anti-women as anti-human. If you don't fight for yourself you won't get raises by just doing a good job and managers will happily have you do 80 hours with no compensation if they can get away with it. So a LOT of good developers I know have started their own businesses to get out of the rat race. You really got to love coding to stay with it when you can make money in consulting.
But part of the problem is the gigantic hatred you see on this site and sites like tweakers any time a story of this kind comes up. "The girls are getting some money, UNFAIR!". Crybabies. There are tons of initiatives to promote coding in general, plenty of competitions if you so wish, plenty of events to visit often with booth babes. No booth boys.
Let it go! Or at least accept that if this news story makes your blood boil, you got issues. And your issues are poisoning your work place or are even the reason you can't find a job despite your leet skills.
Nobody with real skills fears competition. If you see a new employee as anything but "FINALLY, some HELP, here is ticket 1000-9999, I take the remaining 1 million until you are up to speed", you are not a developer, real developers don't have enough spare time to worry about their jobs.
Unfortunatly it's kinda buggy in some ways after playing it with six-seven people. Crashes and desyncs galore, and regular multiplayer hosting is actually stabler.
It also crashes if it's started without a steam login, but it doesn't care who is logged in (so it can be a alternative account that dosen't have Civ 5). This could be a regression introduced with a patch at some point (it probably tries to do a callback with the steam API and fails).
