Your trainer was an idiot, not a network admin. Oracle database and the various Oracle apps I've used have no silly issues with firewalls. They may have some apps with issues, but not the main product which uses a single consistent TCP port for connections.
Since the company you're buying things from has raised its rates by 3 to 5% in order to cover the charges the credit card company charges them on transactions.
At no point does the credit card company not make extra money from your transaction, you're just not smart enough to realize you're paying for that case back yourself in the cost of the items you're buying.
Product A costs $1.00 to make a proper profit, company raises the rate to $1.05. You use a credit card to buy it and think you're awesome for getting $0.02 back from the purchase.
No need to look up how FICO works, no one actually uses FICO when considering you. There are many many systems to calculate a credit score and if you go apply for a loan/credit card/anything that gives you a score from 5 different places the same day you'll get 5 different credit scores and the difference has nothing to do with recent credit inquiries.
They aren't your friends if it does.
Relatives are a little different depending on who they are and what your relationship with them is.
I've had no problem mixing the two but then again, if someone can't behave themselves in the business relationship I don't really consider them a friend so I can't really consider it any sort of loss of a friend either.
Those are called training wheels.
And reinventing something thats been done to death is neither a challenge or fun for most of us.
Why are you posting on your own story? Story can't stand on its merits so you have to swoop in and try to defend it?
Hint: You're just re-enforcing his point, this is a stupid story to post to slashdot. WTF is wrong with you guys?
You seem to be impressed because he's trying to sell something for $50 which most of us made in one form or another 5 years ago in the earlier days of Arduino while were were dicking around on the weekend, bored. Worse still is that its about $45 over priced.
Yes, it is, takes some fucking responsibility for your own actions.
Did you seriously just call Red Bull a gateway drug?
Tim Lord, you're a moron. Stop posting stories, this isn't your personal blog. And no, writing them and then having Roblimo or another slashdot editor post the stories doesn't make it any better. Just stop, we don't want your thoughts.
Except you'd spend more on electricity than you'd have spent to just buy it.
Thats not including source material.
Thats not including the fact that the part you printed is going to be so weak, relative to the mass produced part that it doesn't stand a chance of being useful.
You only think its a good idea because you have absolutely no real world experience with 3d printing.
3D printing at home is a joke for anything other than AT BEST making lost-PLA (i.e. lost wax but with PLA) style molds that you can fill with a metal, and even thats HIGHLY specialized.
Note: I have both a 3d printer and a CNC machine, and 9 times out of 10, I CNC it rather than print it and do a pour. Nothing printed at home has enough strength to be useful. If you think even a 3d printed phone case would be useful, you really don't have any idea. One won't even last you through the work day before its coming apart.
http is tcp port 80, so what you said is:
'so tcp port 80 won't be throttled by tcp port 80 (or whatever) uses will be-'
Linus doesn't generally 'yell' at competent, talented developers.
Thats where you're confused.
Linus yells after someone repeatedly argues with him that they aren't wrong or that its his fault and he has proven otherwise, then they come back and do it again.
Linus is generally very easy to convince he's wrong
Great things in this world aren't built by people who are more concerned with being politically correct than doing the right thing, sorry to burst your bubble.
From your posts I'm sensing you're rather jealous of Apple.
Did your mom shit in your cereal this morning or something? You're just being retarded, troll.
O.M.G. Apple ate the dingos that ate my baby
God you're such a shitty troll, and you've posted just as quick as you can to troll others. STFU.
... Then something else is wrong with your phone. I have a 3G thats been running the latest version it will upgrade to continuously for months at a time since my son was born over a year ago, the iPod functionality opens nearly instantly.
That is not normal behavior, but hey, rather than assume you have some sort of issue, just assume that level of performance retardation is expected
cdrom drives for desktops are still 5.25" single height drives. I'm fairly certain he knows what he's talking about.
