Classic Shell is a brilliant piece of kit for certain, but I can't imagine any business or institution relying on it for all their forward-facing GUI. Typically problems like a broken GUI are something you require the vendor such as Microsoft to repair. So while I agree that Classic Shell deserves to be mentioned in response to most naysayers, it is not reasonable to expect a corporation or institution to install such a lovely and clever hack to tweak every Win 8 box, especially when it doesn't play with Group Policy and "support" is handled by one or two people - even though it is open source.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
If you have not yet marveled at the gustatorial misgivings sold to saps and suckers with barely a regard for their lingering effects and the likelihood of robbing a customer not only of coin, but the ability to walk the next day, you should stop in at Mrs. Miggins'.
Seems to just go back to this submission. Tested using
http://slashdot.org/submission... only, without the suffixes.
The repeated consonants or vowels, usually at the start of a sentence or thought, indicate heightened emotion--usually fear, trepidation, worry, or embarassment. The halting flow of the language is representative of those conditions, where the speaker's confidence is not sufficient to continue the strings of phonemes without retrying / restarting the word or phrase several times.
I hope this clears up your questions and possibly takes away some of your anti-stuttering bias. I feel better now too.
Just go with Classic Shell
You can skip Metro entirely and just use the desktop with a full Start Menu almost identical to Windows 7. It's quite elegant. There are also a bunch of other free and commercial Start Menu mods for Win 8 / 8.1.
- Why? Yes! Because that website said you were going to die at 3pm, didn't it?
- Did it? I can't remember.
- How could you forget? It clearly stated that you were going to die, today. At precisely 3:00. Unless it was tomorrow. But no, it's today, at 3:00.
Some phones are meant to have a weedy vibrate setting.
Granted, it takes cash to run sites like these, but they were fine before. The question is, do some of you here want to band together, get whatever is available of slashcode and rebuild this community somewhere else? We can try to make it as it once was, a haven of geeky knowledge and frosty piss, delivered free of charge in a clean community moderated format."
Supports Windows, Linux, OS X, Android, and they claim iOS soon.
Cute - I was thinking something more along the lines of:
"Hello, and welcome to Microsoft Software Security Assurance Enterprise, Small Business, Government, and Education Transparency Center number 6!
You'll notice that there's a beautiful and fluid whiteboard set up over here to the right. These lines represent our data flow between all of our convenient and secure value-adding services to our customers, and these dots with arrows pointing to an unlabeled blue box are transfer nodes, which Microsoft has decided are not applicable to this Transparency Center presentation.
Now, if you'll look directly in front of you, there's a window that you're free to gaze through to observe Microsoft's server operations for a period of 32 minutes. Please don't touch the glass, and thank you for visiting Microsoft Transparency Center, or as we on the the Security Assurance team lovingly refer to it, 'MSTC6.' Please visit us again soon, and don't forget to accept a complimentary Microsoft gift bag including some enticing software discounts!"
Or Klingon opinion, anyway:
"Captain's log, stardate 9522.6. I've never trusted Klingons, and I never will. I can never forgive them for the death of my boy. It seems to me our mission to escort the Chancellor of the Klingon High Council to a peace summit is problematic at best. Spock says this could be an historic occasion and I'd like to believe him. But how on Earth can history get past people like me?"
Are we still in the U. S.? Why?
Your necessary qualifications should also include Cognitive Dissonance (Level IV, but if you believe you're a Level V, we will accept that) and Reality Distortion Warp experience (6 years in a public-facing position. We noticed you wrote "3 years" here but after tallying the total experience reported worked, your history qualifies.)
Then if the anti-gays protest the protest by pushing attendance to this film, then the pro-gays must begin the anti-protest protest by buying two tickets to every other film playing _except_ Ender's Game.
Thus will voices be heard through one-upsmanship. cha-ching!
Deep brain stimulation at TED Talks
Probably should go more with the "Brain Pacemaker Helps Treat Alzheimer's Disease" story, but it's too cool not to share. This involves implants performed by neurosurgeons because the positioning and amount of electricity is critical to the success of the procedure.
Although it would be interesting to see what a trickle charge does for these burnt-out frontal lobes...
Is this thing on?
