This is why I tell clients not to use them. Because it takes some bogus copyright claim and Google rolls over and plays dead because they do not want to actually invest time and money into a system and training that actually works to weed out these abusive claims.
How about we just fund it with a sales tax on Wall Street? Because in our current situation graduates are not getting the jobs they once were. Corporations have been totally relieved of all incentives to actually create jobs to hire them.
And while this idea might work in the future, it does nothing to solve the huge $1,200,000,000,000 bubble that is starting to burst.
I've been doing it for years. I found that the best learning technique for me is to build something, blow it up, and then build it again, until the moving parts are second nature to me-- so it's handy to have a server/network I can blow up without getting fired.
A lot of the techniques and scripts I've developed on my network at home have ended up in use at client sites, and vice versa.
That went down and I think it ate some files with it. Just before the crash my client reported 103 files being removed. They weren't by me.
Amen! The reason why ad blockers became so prevalent was because ads became more and more obnoxious popping up over the content and blocking us from seeing it or annoying (not to mention bandwidth wasting) Flash animations and seizure-inducing flashes to grab our attention.
And now the IAB tells us that a "diverse internet experience" requires them to be assholes. No thank you. Because the more obnoxious and intrusive an ad is, the less likely I am to click on it, buy the product, or utilize the service.
I was going to say the same thing.
Do you have any proof that MoveOn and company were doing anything wrong? The Right Wing in this country has already proven they cannot play by the rules and break them constantly. And Right-wing groups spring up in this nation about as fast as Koch & Co can write checks to protect their precious trust-funds.
Maybe because groups like MoveOn.Org and co are *gasp* actually following the rules! It's like how these so-called fact checkers went out of their way to find things wrong with what some Democrats said in order not to appear biased because the right-wing was lying left and right.
But conversely though we live in society now where taking that assertive step is met with ridicule itself. They could have shown remorse and apologized or they could have just as easily shrugged her off and told her to get over it.
Take a look at all the bullying in schools that occurs and when called out on the carpet the response is "You're infringing on my freedom of speech!" or "You're infringing on my freedom of religion!".
I say this because your price point alone makes it very attractive to simply purchase the thing. I would just leave it at a serial number that maybe phones home for validation on install. Copy protection inevitably only hinders legitimate users.
I am curious though as to what your program is and what it does as I am a graphic designer myself as well as faculty attached to the graphic design program at the local college and I am always looking for new/cool stuff both for myself and to share with students.
>The number of people who still "specifically need" the Mac Pro aren't very different since Apple hasn't upgraded the expansion capacity of their other headless Macs.
Yes, I know. I thought that in the context of my statement, "the abilities of a Mac Pro" pretty clearly referred to its greater expandability.
IIRC, Tim Cook already publicly stated a redesigned Mac Pro would be released in 2013.
The other Macs in the lineup have grown more powerful over the years, so the number of people who still specifically need the abilities of a Mac Pro is relatively small. It would make no financial sense for Apple to address these regulations by changing the current Mac Pro design. The best move was what they did-- simply giving those people some warning so anyone who was planning future Mac Pro purchases could decide if they needed to buy the existing model or could afford to wait for the redesigned model to be announced.
On Black Friday, one of my coworkers bought a new laptop that came preloaded with Windows 8. Last week she brought it in and asked me to look at it because she couldn't get anything with Flash to work in IE.
I know Flash in the "metro" IE is supposed to be severely limited in what it can do, but even the desktop mode IE refused to run Flash. This despite the add-on being present and showing as enabled. After googling around and fucking with it for about 45 minutes, trying to get something to work that should have just worked right out of the box, I gave up and just installed Chrome for her so she'd have something that could run Flash stuff.
She later managed to find a Windows 7 laptop somewhere, bought it, and returned the Windows 8 laptop. When she returned it, the clerk asked her why, and she told him it was because Windows 8 was awful. He told her that Windows 8 machines were being returned to that store in droves, and every person he asked gave him the same reason.
Messing with her laptop was my first experience with Windows 8, and if I can help it, it will be my last. I found it to be a jumbled mishmash of confusing crap, and I've been doing IT for 20 years-- I can only imagine how hard non-techies are going to reject it. I am going to cling to Windows 7 for as long as I can.
