OSX is a fork of Linux, Slackware specifically, which itself is some original old Linux code with some Cray UNICOS bolted on for what was then some decent HPC.
What do you mean when a white guy does it?
Adam Lanza was white. Most of the mass shooters in my lifetime have been white.
What is unusual is a black man doing it.
We're great at having laws that punish criminal gun use. We're somewhat ok at criminal background checks. We suck at mental illness background checks, and we suck at keeping guns we own away from the mentally ill.
But London has had minicabs too for years (these are cabs you can't just hail in the street, you have to phone them to get one) and these are regulated under less onerous regulations than the black cabs. What makes Uber different to any other minicab service that's currently up and running in London? Nothing really, other than you press buttons on your mobile phone's touch screen to order one, instead of talking into your mobile phone's microphone.
What is a "real name" in Facebook's definition, anyway? I know many people who are not known by the name printed in their passport. There's two people at the place I work who are not known by the first name their parents gave them and that is printed in their passport. I'd argue the name we know them by is still their "real name" (more so in fact) than the name printed in their passport.
In any case I'd just photoshop mine if they asked.
That's what you get for an engineered demographic collapse.
Oculus Rift DK2 is already 1080p vertical resolution, but it's nowhere near enough. The next versions will be about 1200 vertical which will help. Really the displays in the headsets need to be approaching 4K for a full-on-HD experience.
In other words, virtual reality. The problem with the current VR headsets like the DK2, is you have effectively a 1080p display that fills most of your field of vision, in other words, yes - you can see the pixels and they are pretty big. The screen door effect is also pretty bad. Text is very difficult to read using the Rift DK2 unless the text is very large.
Developing very high PPI displays will be a real benefit for VR headsets. Tne next crop (the Vive/SteamVR and Oculus CV1) have better resolution (IIRC it's something like 1200 pixels vertical) and probably will have much less of a screen door effect, but the resolution really needs doubling at least for a VR headset to truly feel HD.
Sadly, not that good. This database is good third normal form, but it is specifically tuned for multi-level marketing, and I'm not allowed a direct SQL connection to it.
It's a prickly world.
I have no idea who can win the election. I'm completely out of touch with what's become the average American these days.
All I know is I'm not just anti-dynasty (IOW anti- another Bush for prez), I'm anti-cartel (IOW anti- another member of the political class for prez). I'm completely in touch with the "Sixty-six percent of GOP voters [who] say they are more likely to vote for a candidate who brings new ideas and different approaches to Washington, compared to 29 percent who say experience and a proven record in government are more important to them.".
using entity framework to access a cloud database that I have zero control over.
I've never done EF, but that sounds like paradise. I desperately want to just use the database as a persistence mechanism at some job, where it's just used to store a snapshot of the C# object model's state. IOW, business logic only in C# classes.
code generated views
I may have to abuse some of their tables to do it.
That's breaking even the very first normal form of relational database design, which makes me want to run away screaming.
Thanks, I'll look into Web Parts, might make it a good deal easier.
MVC is largely overkill, but I've gotten used to breaking the model with code generated views. After that, going back to codebehind web forms seems hard to debug again- especially using entity framework to access a cloud database that I have zero control over. But at least it's work.
What is going to be fun, this time around, is figuring out where I can plug my widget data into their data model. I may have to abuse some of their tables to do it.
